In a world with no future And in a time that made no sense Existence had stopped and stood still Factories pumping the weapons of wartime Made with intention to kill Now, we're a nuclear wasteland A world full of hatred We sat and watched it all go by News breaking coverage of the people all dying And no one ever asked why What will we tell the children? Will there be any left to hear? Will the children be able to listen? Or will they all be hiding in fear? There's a man on the TV, talking away Telling the death toll for today But no one is watching Nobody is listening Cause they've all been taken away Stuck in the camps or handed machine guns They were told to fight for a cause Now they're killing their brothers and they're killing their mothers To keep their own lives from being lost. Over time, the numbers had increased The flesh piles stacked up high Nothing will change, unless we are to change it And the dying will continue to die What will we tell the children? Will there be any left to hear? Will the children be able to listen? Or will they all be hiding in fear? What happened to all of the children? What stories will we have left to be said? How will the children hear them? Once all the children are dead……..
