Lyrics
Life was filled with guns and war
And everyone got trampled on the floor
I wish we'd all been ready
Children died the day grew cold

A piece of bread could buy a bag of gold
I wish we'd all been ready
There's no time to change your mind
The son has come and you've been left behind

A man and wife sleep in bed she hears a noise
And turns her head he's gone
I wish we'd all been ready
Two men walking up a hill one disappears and

One's left standing still
I wish we'd all been ready
There's no time to change your mind
The son has come and you've been left behind

Life was filled with guns and war
And everyone got trampled on the floor
I wish we'd all been ready
Children died the days grew cold

A piece of bread could buy a bag of gold
I wish we'd all been ready
There's no time to change your mind
How could you have been so blind

The father spoke the demons dined
The son has come and you've been left behind.
