Gunships

This song is by Bedouin Soundclash and appears on the album Street Gospels (2007).

Gunships in a storm sinking to the ocean floor
And with them goes the cause that we all were fighting for
Fire on the door as we wash up on the shore
The colours we have worn only left our nation torn

I hear it coming through the wall
Is that another rebels call
Lost out in a lovers squall
And there wont be no right or wrong
And we won't sing no victory song
For a nation that was torn
In a lovers civil war

So, gunships in a storm sinking to the ocean floor
And with them goes the cause that we all were fighting for
Fire on the door as we wash up on the shore
The colours we have worn only left our nation torn

So is this grace's last stand?
And will I see your face again?
Or can we find no common land?
And through the windows that got blown
Comes the thought of the unknown
And was that six years coming past
In the shrapnel of a blast?

So, gunships in a storm sinking to the ocean floor
And with them goes the cause that we all were fighting for
Fire on the door as we wash up on the shore
The colours we have worn only left our nation torn

Those are lines in the sands
And has the ship sunk fast?
And was that six years comin' past
In the bullet and a blast?

So, gunships in a storm sinking to the ocean floor
And with them goes the cause that we all were fighting for
Fire on the door as we wash up on the shore
The colours we have worn only left our nation torn

Gunships in a storm
That's it, gunships in a storm
That's it, gunships in a storm
That's it, gunships in a storm
