lyrics

This is the place where we live by the rules
Only to die by the sword
This is the world that has drawn a line
And told us its cutting the chord

To the heart of this city has come an earthquake
It's ripping and tearing streets in two
And this ground we can mend but never un-break
The damage, inside us, it grew

So have we ever been so far away
And what will be the price that we all pay
Oh god we'll pay

With the damage done
How long will it take
To rebuild this city
From the man made earthquake?

Last night we watched our city collapse
We built it on unstable ground
For fifty years we'll be tasting the dust
In the rubble remorse won't be found

There's familiar destruction under cold, dark skies
There's brothers at war on the streets
My thoughts are fighting like wounded animals
And my hoping heart it depletes

Are we further away than we have ever been?
Cos I can't face this turmoil that's rushing in my blood stream

With the damage done
How long will it take
To rebuild this city
From the man made earthquake?

So now that love has been persecuted
And war is glorified
Can I win a losing battle
In a world where that's justified

With the damage done
How long will it take
To rebuild this city
From the man made earthquake?
