Hear you not the pulse of man?
Beat beat beat as the armies march
Cough cough cough as the sick suffer
Bang bang bang
Another man dead
Boom boom boom
Another city annihilated
Please please please
Another beggar starves
Ring ring ring
Another wife breaking inside
Sob sob sob
Another child homeless
Crack crack crack

Another mother cries tonight over unborn life
Glug glug glug
Just another drunk
Screech screech screech
Just a car
Just a family
Just our world
