The Cranberries - Zombie

Another head hangs lowly, child is slowly taken
And the violence caused such silence
Who are we mistaken

But you see it s not me, it s not my family
In your head, in your head, they are fighting
With their tanks, and their bombs
And their bombs, and their guns
In your head, in your head they are cryin

In your head, in your head, Zombie, Zombie
In your head, what s in your head Zombie

Another mother s breaking heart is taking over
When the violence causes silence
We must be mistaken
I ts the same old theme since 1916
In your head, in your head they re still fightin

With their tanks, and their bombs
And their bombs, and their guns
In your head, in your head they are dyin

In your head, in your head, Zombie, Zombie
In your head, what s in your head Zombie
