    Lyrics

    All I hear are peace talks and battle cries.

    Everyone's losing - nobody's winning,
    So run for your lives when the shrapnel's spinning.

    Pictures of the crippled - wounded on the frontline
    Someone else's problem - you're sitting on a landmine.
    When will we see reason? Sometimes I think we'll never
    Learn that children have the right to laugh - and dying is forever

    All I hear are peace talks and battle cries.

    No time for laughter - we're too busy dying,
    In this 'Devil's Playground' - bullets are flying.

    There's another star in heaven - and footprints on the moon
    So ignore the reign of terror - the bloody red monsoon.
    Neighbour fighting neighbour - oh see how quick they run
    To tear down the white flag and pick up the gun.

    Peace talks and battle cries - apathy can kill
    Put a price on human life - pay 'the butcher's bill'.
    Everybody's losing - nobody's winning,
    Run for your lives when the shrapnel's spinning.

    Hear my prayer from the Valley of the Shadow -
    For a child in an unmarked grave.
    Take my hand in the hour of darkness -
    While there's someone left to save.

    But you can't hear me - all you can hear are...

    Peace talks and battle cries - apathy can kill,
    Put a price on human life - pay 'the butcher's bill'.
    No time for laughter - we're too busy dying,
    In this 'Devil's Playground' where bullets are flying.

    I think about the children who have no hopes or homes,
    Born into a battlfield - war's all they've ever known.
    Neighbour loving neighbour - will that day ever come
    When we shake hands in friendship and survey the damage done.

    All I hear are peace talks and battle cries.

    Everyone's losing - nobody's winning,
    So run for your lives when the shrapnel's spinning.

    Hear my prayer from the Valley of the Shadow -
    For a child in an unmarked grave.
    Take my hand in the hour of darkness -
    While there's someone left to save.

    Why won't you help me?
    Why can't you hear me?
