As two kids who always spent
their time playing with toy guns in their hands.
There you stood in front of me.
They taught me that you’re my enemy.
And when our eyes have met,
We both set sail to death.
With the guns of grown-up men,
I fear it might be my last breath.
Eye to eye,
our aim is blinded by the sun.
Seeking higher ground,
to a safe haven, I now run.
The night had fallen on no man’s land.
This flute was heard from out there in the dark.
I knew the words and joined in the song.
This nightly truce is a miracle of hope.
We raise our hands and walk
upright to move toward each other
No guns, no death between.
The enemies now turned into brothers.
Together on this barren earth,
I tell him of my son.
No pawns or deadly toys.
The morning comes, and we are gone.
We head to base and end the truce
that lasted through this war of liars.
A vision of a better life
where music drowns the toy gun’s fire.
The next night I see a shadow and
we both shoot in the name of God.
As we fell down our eyes met.
Our friendship ends now in this turmoil of blood.
