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
(And) Watching the wind blow (And faces in windows)
(And) 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 fear the final hours
Put down paradise as lost?

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?

Do you dream at night? Do you scream at night?
Do you smell the 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
