The Children

Children in the streets playing with toy machine-guns
Innocent minds thinking of destruction
Children in the streets killing each-other with fake blood
Innocent minds against innocent minds

Hand-grenades and razor blades
Death seems so far away
Killing toys for little boys
What’s the price we’ll have to pay?

Children in the streets turning war into a game
See the hate in their innocent eyes
Children in the streets life and death is all the same
To their innocent little lives

Tommy-guns seem like so much fun
When death is so far away
Blood and gore you can buy in a store
Now life is the price we’ll pay
To understand the destructive man
I know a child you should meet
To understand death in demand
Just watch the children in the street
