The Lyrics

If a reminder of the dangers of terrorism was needed, it came over the weekend. Almost two hundred people, mostly Australian tourists, were killed at the Indonesian island of Bali when a powerful car bomb exploded outside a bar popular with foreigners. Once again, we mourn for these innocent individuals.
The Balinese region
Was a playground for thee
It's no longer a safe land
Just across the sea

Some day you'll return to
To Bali and its bars
You now share your concerns
With your brothers in arms

Through these fields of destruction
Baptisms of fire
We've witnessed your suffering
As the death toll went higher

And though they would hurt you so bad
To cause fear and alarm
We will not desert thee
Your brothers in arms

(Instrumental break)

Their hatred they do unfurl
And evil acts they've done
Though they hide 'round the world
We'll find each and ev'ry one

(Instrumental break)

Soon we'll get ev'ry cell
Then we can ask why
We'd have to bid farewell
And good men have to die

But for now we're in a firefight
And people can't stay calm
They're fools to make war
On us brothers in arms
