Terrified
Verse
The sun rose from a topaz sea.
The sky was sapphire blue.
The waves marched like lines of soldiers.
The way I used to do.
Pre chorus
On a beach like this we came ashore.
Greeted by machine gun fire.
On a beach like this the sand ran red.
Boys hung up in barbed wire died.
Chorus
Today seems so peaceful.
So why these tears in my eyes.
Why am I not grateful?
Why am I so terrified?
Verse
The wind blew in from the tropics.
The sky turned asphalt grey.
We fell like rows of dominos.
Prayed to God we’d be saved.
Pre chorus
On a beach like this we came ashore.
Greeted by machine gun fire.
On a beach like this the sand ran red.
Boys hung up in barbed wire died.
Chorus
Today seems so peaceful.
So why these tears in my eyes.
Why am I not grateful?
Why am I so terrified?
Verse
War is a harsh reality.
A man can lose his way.
You witness such brutality
It can leave a man changed.
Pre chorus
On a beach like this we came ashore.
Greeted by machine gun fire.
On a beach like this the sand ran red.
Boys tangled in barbed wire died.
Chorus
Today seems so peaceful.
So why these tears in my eyes.
Why am I not grateful?
Why am I so terrified?
Bridge
I can’t sleep without seeing their faces.
Hearing them screaming in vain.
The thunder of guns the bursting of bombs
Pounding inside of my brain.
