lyrics

Key in the front door and I'm kicking off my shoes
And I'm stopped in my tracks by what I'm seeing on the news
And it's nothing I didn't see coming, but I can't believe it's true

And I'm sat here thinking of all that will be lost
Then I'm thinking how I can't begin to understand that cost
'Cos everything and everyone I love is tucked up safe tonight against the frost

And I've got no words of comfort
Nothing to sound wise
But I never heard of no peace
That came falling from the skies
And for every single story ending
When every single person dies
Everybody in this troubled, troubled world
Is someone's bad guys

And I'm listening to these people speaking for me on the screen
And I'm watching all our papers firing up that war machine
And I'm wondering if any of them really know what it means
And I'm listening to our leaders reading out the crimes
As if being innocent was just a frame of mind
Well tell the civilians, no hard feelings
Just wrong place, wrong time

And for every politician
That you respect or despise
Well they never had to look none of those people in the eyes
When they were ticking in their boxes
For who lives and who dies
Well everybody in this troubled, troubled world
Is someone's bad guys

And I'm not saying it's a decision I could take
We'll tell our children how we made the same mistakes
We watched our fathers and their fathers before us make

And I've got no words of comfort
But I can't just close my eyes
To all those kids who didn't get out of a battleground in time
And they tell you it's good and evil
Let me tell you, that's all lies
Because everybody in this troubled, troubled world
Is someone's bad guys
To those people standing under broken skies
We're the bad guys
