[Verse 1] 
Oh I see the storm is threatening, my very life today
If I dont get some shelter, Yeah I'm gonna fade away

[Chorus]
War children, its just a kiss away, its just a kiss away
War children, its just a kiss away, its just a kiss away
Yeah...

[Verse 2]
Oh I see the fire is sweeping, out on the streets today
Burn me like a blood red carpet, the fool lost the way

[Bridge]
Rape, Murder, its just a kiss away, its just a kiss away
Rape, Murder, its just a kiss away, its just a kiss away
Yeah...

[Outro]
Love, sister, its just a shot away, it's just a shot away
Love, sister, its just a shot away, shot away, shot away
War children, its just a kiss away, its just a kiss away
War children, its just a kiss away, its just a kiss away
Rape, Murder, its just a kiss away, its just a kiss away
Rape, Murder, its just a kiss away, its just a kiss away
                                        (Repeat to fade...)
