Blood On The Sand
Thrice Lyrics


We wave our flags, we swallow fear like medicine
We kiss the hands of profiteers and their congressmen
But I've seen too much (of this fear and hate)
Yeah, I've had enough (and I'm not afraid)
To raise a shout, to make it clear
This has to end

There's blood on the sand, there's blood in the street
And there's a there's a gun in my hand, or there might as well be
And I'm sick of it, I’m so sick of this

We panic at the sight of different-colored skin
And we've got a plan to justify each mess we're in
But I've seen too much (of this fear and hate)
I've had enough (and I'm not afraid)
To take a stand, to make it right, this has to end

There's blood on the sand, there's blood in the street
And there's a there's a gun in my hand, or there might as well be
And I'm sick of it, I’m so sick of this

Fear will kill your mind and steal your love as sure as anything
Fear will rob you blind and make you numb to others' suffering
And I've felt its touch too many times and I've had enough
I've had enough

There's blood on the sand, there's blood in the street
And there's a gun in your hand, or there might as well be
Are you sick of it, I’m so sick of this

There's blood on the sand, there's blood in the street
There's a gun in your hand, or there's might as well be
Aren't you sick of it, I'm just sick of this
'Cause I'm sick, I'm sick of this
I'm so sick of this mess

Thank you for the support through the years, Thrice. I have listened since I was 10 years old.

... I have suffered the true wrath of this system's malice. Never broke any laws. Never stole. Never threatened. Never owned a weapon.

In October 2016 I was attacked in a small town by corrupt police officers. They aggressed tazers and threw me to the ground for complying. All 3 gang members got on top of me and crushed my spine until I suffocated. I am now 24 years old and I can no longer walk. Permanently disabled for life.

The swearing at the end of this song is powerful. Thanks for sharing the pain.

"Fear will kill your mind and steal your love as sure as anything

I've had enough!"
That is song writing right there.

Seriously tho, agreed 333%

Most of their lyrics are just perfect :) :/

Too bad most ppl don't even listen to them, and if they do, they don't seem to put their wisdom in action...

Chris Starr

Are y'all getting forza horizon 3 vibes from this or are y'all getting call of duty vibes from this

Nate Preston

Nice!!

Have to have listened to this at least 15 times. I don't really see the hate on this, it's heavier than Major Minor, still definitely has a thrice sound, and has amazing lyrics. If people are seriously giving up on thrice's new album because of one song I feel really bad for them. Glad to see thrice back strong as ever.

There is something different about Thrice fans. It's cool to see the undying support for Thrice.

Thrice just has a way of continued evolution from the beginning, and I've loved every change except for the alchemy index. Well, i guess i liked the fire element, very heavy

+philip duguay My first contact with Thrice was when but friends asked me in 04 if I wanted to go to a show of theirs. I thought they meant Obie Trice and politely declined. Have since wisened up and loved all their music ever since. For me it's between Vheissu and Alchemy Index. Still haven't seen them live though 😕 up there with He is Legend and Tool as my most sought after live bands

+Laura Mitchell Been there since the beginning back in 01, they never disapointed me and never will
