Lyrics: Official AlbumEdit

Oh, a storm is threat'ning
My very life today
If I don't get some shelter
Oh yeah, I'm gonna fade away

War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away, yeah

Ooh, see the fire is sweepin'
Our very street today
Burns like a red coal carpet
Mad bull lost its way

War, children yes, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away, yeah

Rape, murder, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
Rape, murder yeah, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away

Rape, murder, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away, yeah yeah

The floods is threat'ning
My very life today
Gimme, gimme shelter
Or I'm gonna fade away

War, children, it's just a shot away
It's just a shot away

It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away
It's just a shot away

I tell you love, sister, it's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away

It's just a kiss away
It's just a kiss away
Kiss away, kiss away
