Sometimes it makes me question
Sometimes it makes me sadden
Always, it makes me angry, but...

Meanwhile, there's someone laughing at us

It's out of control

Expecting another air raid
Praying for a ceasefire

They say things are getting better
No need to be complacent
There's chaos across the border
And one day, it could be happening to us

It's out of control
Blood on the world's hands
It's our epitaph
It's out of control
Someone should know
Blood on the world's hands
Someone should—
