mourn their children dying



You were standing there
just like you weren't there
working the reason of your last trauma
as you listen to instant karma

You knew a man you wanted for your father
but you couldn't go any further
no one ever answered your prayers
all you'd been fed was promises from double dealers

You'd learned to love and hate
to make it easy to discriminate
to sell your soul for their real estate
as you devour your bar of chocolate

You take a back seat because you have no choice
you don't have an opinion,you have no voice
nothing to sell so you don't have a price
can't even call the local police

but you know
yeah you know
two billion people starving
just so you can go on living
you can't hear them crying
as they mourn their children dying
mourn their children dying
mourn their children dying
mourn their children dying

Tenderly you come home late
gentely close the garden gate
trying to set out your fate
hoping to find your true mate

Searching for reason as you sing their songs
taught to you from when you were young
a reason to believe as you step on the rung
following the the leaders who'd have you hung

You know it isn't about treason
you're just looking for a reason
you don't want to drink the wrong poison
that sends you into confusion

Just to wake to his propaganda
and to be part of his memoranda
as the truth becomes the agenda lies
something your told to despise

but you know
yeah you know
two billion people starving
just so you can go on living
you can't hear them crying
as they mourn their children dying
mourn their children dying
mourn their children dying
mourn their children dying

Where do you go from here
who cares about your fear
as he drinks another beer
what is your career

To be told what to think
in all this mess and stink
to be given no hand of hope
as you're fed his lethal dope

You laugh at everything gone
just 'cause it's all gone wrong
nobody singing the same song
laughing at the weak being devoured by the strong

But you cant stand it any more
all the lies from this hellish war
your brains full of other chores
no reason left to even the score

but you know
yeah you know
two billion people starving
just so you can go on living
you can't hear them crying
as they mourn their children dying
mourn their children dying
mourn their children dying
mourn their children dying
