'To the outsider it seems that we in Britain
Live daily under the cloud of terrorism.
That familiarity sometimes makes you think of it as almost normal
Then suddenly something will happen'

We stand, hang our heads disbelieving
Then not knowing how could such a thing be wrong
We wonder just what they must be thinking
To take a life of one so young

So tell me when will it be over now, how soon?
How far must we go, to prove to you?

We wait and we wonder how this happened
Killing the old, the innocent, the young
