Since nineteen-sixteen
In your head, in your head, they are fighting…
 
In your head, in your head
Zombie, zombie, zombie-ie-ie.
  • It's the same old theme
    Since nineteen-sixteen
    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 crying
    In your head, in your head
    Zombie, zombie, zombie-ie-ie
    What's in your head, in your head
    Zombie, zombie, zombie-ie-ie, oh

Are You Listening? (2007)Edit

  • This is just an ordinary day
    Wipe the insecurities away
    I can see that the darkness will erode
    Looking out the corner of my eye
    I can see that the sunshine will explode
    Far across the desert in the sky
    Beautiful girl
    Won't you be my inspiration?
    Beautiful girl
    Don't you throw your love around
    What in the world, what in the world
    Could ever come between us?
  • I can't find a word to say to you
    I can't comprehend, I can't relate to you

    Plain to see your faith for me

    Take me where I want to go
    Teach me things I need to know.
    • Angel Fire

Quotes about O'RiordanEdit

  • Only yesterday did I discover that her group, or she herself, had composed the song in memory of the event in Warrington.
    My wife came home from the police centre where she worked yesterday and told me the news. I got the song up on the laptop, watched the band singing, saw Dolores and listened to the words.
    The words are both majestic and also very real … The event at Warrington, like the many events that happened all over Ireland and Great Britain, affected families in a very real way and many people have become immune to the pain and suffering that so many people experienced during that armed campaign.
    To read the words written by an Irish band in such compelling way was very, very powerful.
