WAR CHILD

Written by: Trevor Bolder & Derk Gallagher
Released on: 'Wake The Sleeper' June 2008


Open your eyes, youíre still here
Still safe, at peace in this world
So great, youíre free
You donít have to fight for your life
But just say, just say
Thereís fire from the sky
And youíre burning alive

Why all this pain
And poison in her mind
What can you change
When hatred made her blind
Soldiers, no reason to look into her eyes
No one to hold her
No one who really cares

Lifeless expressions
Destroyed all conceptions
For children in the street
Whoís there to help you
When all is forgotten and
Torn apart by fear
No one to hold her
No one who really cares

Oh, please donít cry
Oh, no war child

The struggle for power
That grows by the hour
Like the blood beneath her feet
Dispering with heartache
There must be somebody
To help her in such need
No one to hold her
No one who really cares

Oh, please donít cry
Oh, no war child
Oh, please donít cry
Oh, no war child

Open your eyes, youíre still here
Still safe, at peace in this world
So great, youíre free
You donít have to
Fight for your life
War child

Oh, please donít cry
Oh, no war child
Oh, please donít cry
Oh, no war child
No war child
Oh, please donít cry
Oh, no war child
No war child
