About In the Crossfire

"In the Crossfire" is a rock song written by britpop band Starsailor, which talks about the suffering of people who have lived the Iraq War. The song says "I hear them screaming on the radio, it's getting louder in the crossfire, trying to find some hope from the ashes of their broken homes". This is the first political song of the band which denounced the alliance of Prime Minister Tony Blair with president George W. Bush (I don't see myself when I look at the flag) during the war on Iraq. It peaked at number 22 on the UK Singles Chart. "In the Crossfire" shows a more mature and heavier-sounding Starsailor, unique from what they have done before. Noticeably, it shows a marked distance between the sound of other britpop groups like Coldplay.

I don't see myself when I look in the mirror
I see who I should be
I don't see myself when I look in your eyes

Thank God for that

I don't see myself when I look 'cross the river
I see where I should be
I don't see myself when I look from the sky

Thank God for that

I hear them screaming on the radio
It's getting louder in the crossfire
Trying to find some hope
From the ashes of their broken homes

I don't see myself when they fail to deliver
I see what I should be
I don't see myself when I look at the flag

Thank God for that

I hear them screaming on the radio
It's getting louder in the crossfire
Trying to find some hope

Our day will come we'll find the sun
We'll find the fire, we'll sanctify
The love we gave our one desire

I hear them screaming on the radio
It's getting louder in the crossfire
Trying to find some hope

I hear them screaming on the radio
It's getting louder in the crossfire
Trying to find some hope
From the ashes of their broken homes

I don't see myself when I look in the mirror
