Original video
Lying awake at night
I wipe the sweat from my brow
But it's not the fear
Cause I'd rather go now

Trying to visualize
Tthe horrors that will lay ahead
The desert sand mound
A burial ground

When it comes to the time
Are we partners in crime
When it comes to the time
We'll be ready to die

God let us go now
And finish what's to be done
Thy kingdom come
Thy shall be done - on Earth

Trying to justify to ourselves
The reasons to go
Should we live and let live
Forget or forgive

But how can we let them go on this way
The reign of terror, corruption must end
And we know, deep down there's no other way
No trust, no reasoning, no more to say

Afraid to shoot strangers
Afraid to shoot strangers

Afraid, afraid to shoot strangers
Afraid, afraid to shoot strangers
Afraid, afraid to shoot strangers

Afraid, afraid to shoot strangers
Afraid, afraid to shoot strangers
Afraid, afraid to shoot strangers
Afraid, afraid to shoot strangers

Afraid to shoot strangers
Afraid to shoot strangers
Afraid to shoot strangers
Afraid to shoot strangers!
