Mother, mother
Sing me nightmare lullabies

Of frightened screams

Of tortured cries
Of night time horrors
And war time lies

I know what happens

To children like me
Too grown to care
Too young to see

I've heard the gunfire

I saw the bombs
I hear the grieving
The believer's psalms

I've felt the blood

Staining my face
And the ground beneath me
With every pace

I've felt hope slip

It sobs when it dies
So mother, mother
Sing me nightmare lullabies
