A Billion Children Cry

Standard
A BILLION CHILDREN CRY
 
Take my hand, hold my heart, see the sun my friend,
No matter how cold or dark the night, it’s sure to rise again!
And when we live in our Brave New World of peace and calm and light,
We’ll soon forget the pain we shared when all the Wrongs turn Right.
 
But we must not be let pretend,
We must not deny,
We must not forget again,
A billion children’s cry!
 
I know that you have had your fill of waiting for that day,
Frustration echoes through the land as towers start to sway.
The final battle soon shall pass, the bolt-holes die in flames,
The blood is seen on ALL their hands, as justice calls their names.
 
Then we must not be let pretend,
We must not deny,

We must not forget again,
A billion children’s cry!
 
Never doubt what you know down deep, never hide the pain,
Never let such Evil rise, to rule our Worlds again.
 
For we must not be let pretend,
We must not deny,
We must not ignore again,
A billion children’s cry!
