Lyrics:
Life goes on, that’s all they say,
To close our eyes is the only way,
There’s a woman and a child with a familiar face
they can see no sense in going on at all
They don’t know what all the fighting’s for
They could be any one of us
But they’re invisible

Will we be losing any sleep tonight
Will we be losing any sleep at all

Life goes on, that’s all they say
To close our eyes is the only way
There’s a man, gun in his hand, revenge in his heart
He looks at you from some wartorn place
A desperate man painted hate on his face
He could be any one of us
But he listened to their lies

Will we be losing any sleep tonight
Will we be losing any sleep at all

Life goes on, that’s all they say
To close our eyes is the only way
There’s a child with luck on her side, or so it would seem
Her future resides amongst those who have died
And those who have seen
She could be any one of us
But she’s invisible

Life goes on, that’s all they say
To close our eyes is the only way
There’s a woman, head in her hands, she falls to her knees
And where she used to live is razed to the ground
Her life’s possessions scattered around
She could be any one of us
Still listening to their lies

Will you be losing any sleep tonight
Will you be losing any sleep at all

Life goes on, or so they say.
