    “Blinded by Rainbows”

    (M. Jagger/K. Richards, 1994)

    Did you ever feel the pain

    That he felt upon the cross

    Did you ever feel the knife

    Tearing flesh that’s oh so soft

    Did you ever touch the night

    Did you ever count the cost

    Do you hide away the fear

    Put down paradise as lost

    Yeah you’re blinded by rainbows

    Watching the wind blow

    Blinded by rainbows

    Do you dream at night

    Do you sleep at night

    I doubt it

    Did you ever feel the blast

    As the semtex bomb goes off

    Do you ever hear the screams

    As the limbs are all torn off

    Did you ever kiss the child

    Who just saw his father shot

    Do you ever shed a tear

    As the war drags on and on

    Do you ever touch the night

    Or is it just another job

    Do you feel the final hours

    Put down paradise as lost

    Yeah you’re blinded by rainbows

    And faces in windows

    Blinded by rainbows

    Do you dream at night

    Do you sleep at night

    I doubt it

    Do you ever fear the night

    Could it be the war is lost

    Do you fear the final hour

    Do you kneel before the cross

    You’re blinded by rainbows

    And watching the wind blow

    Blinded by rainbows

    Do you dream at night

    Do you scream at night

    Do you smell of fear

    Is your conscience clear

    Are you caked in sweat

    Are your clothes all wet

    Do you see the light

    Is the end in sight

    See the face of Christ

    Enter paradise

    I doubt it
