SOMEONE'S TRYING TO KILL ME

Someone's trying to kill me
It's 1943
Germans are bombing my city
And mother is holding me
Someone's trying to kill me
I'm just a babe in arms
Crying for fear of the sirens
Sounding out their alarms

Someone's trying to kill me
Its 1962
Russians are smuggling missiles
To Cuba and Europe too
Someone's trying to kill me
A student of history
Expecting a flash and a thunder
To soon put an end to me

    All of our lives it's someone
    Someone we'll never see
    Someone who's out their somewhere
    Who doesn't know you or me

Someone's trying to kill me
It's 1974
Irish are bombing my city
And nobody knows what for
Someone's trying to kill me
Is it fate that I just turned down
A friend's invitation to join him
At "The Mulberry Bush" in town

    All of our lives it's someone
    Someone we never see
    Someone who's out their somewhere
    Who doesn't know you or me

Someone's trying to kill me
The year's two thousand and one
I'm in New York City
And World War Three's begun
Someone's trying to kill me
I ran when the towers fell
Now I'm trying to phone my family
In the dust of a living hell

Someone's trying to kill me
Its two thousand and five
I've just got out of the London Tube
And somehow I'm still alive
Someone's trying to kill me
Using a bomb or a gun
Wont "someone", answer my question
What is it I've done?
