Track Sample:

 

 

Initially inspired by those haunting images of the Aleppo boy but then our thoughts went to all the children who suffer the horror of war.

 

The whole band got right behind this one and the arrangement is the product of their passion for the song.in those days who spoke out socially and politically were silenced and considered trouble makers, so musicians used the stage as their podium and lyrics as their speeches,” in order to make social comment.

INTRO:

 

VERSE 1:

Too hard to see, close your eyes, turn it off, just look away

Still they come in the night, wake me up, their lives are dark and grey

Because their home is a war   All their streets are on fire

The wolves, they’re at the door

 

CHORUS

Through filtered lens, I cry and I share the pain you feel,

Oh what must it be like, when the pain is real.

Oh what must it be like, when the pain is real.

 

VERSE 2:

No school, no fun, in the rubble you’re scared, you’re on the run

You’ve seen too much, you just stare at the fire, the smoke and guns

Because your home is war   I can’t be silent anymore

The wolves they’re at your door.

 

CHORUS

Through filtered lens I cry and I share the pain you feel,

Oh what must it be like, when the pain is real.

Oh what must it be like, when the pain is real.

 

BRIDGE:

How many times must a missile fly?

Before they are forever banned

Oh and, how many times can we imagine?

That we can give peace a chance.

That we can give peace a chance.

 

SOLO :

 

VERSE 3:

You cry no more, nothing left, just a child you’re on your own,

It can’t go on, if I could I would bring you to my home,

My home, with no war                you wont be scared anymore

Your childhood, waiting at your door.

 

CHORUS

Through filtered lens I cry and I share the pain you feel,

God what must it be like, when the pain is real.

God what must it be like, when the pain is real.

 

OUTRO:

How many times must a missile fly?

Before they are forever banned

How many times can we imagine?

That we can, give peace a chance…
