lyrics

There’s a strange kind of hush, all over this morning
As the sun climbs the city, and peers to the sea
The dust and the gunfire descends on the streets
Fired by an army in the name of peace

The first thing you’ll hear when this madness is done
Is the crying of children,
And the birds in song

Mothers with children, they cower in their basements
And pray to their god, that they will survive
And out from the sun flies a lone jet pilot
Who blesses himself as he prepares to dive

The first thing you’ll hear when this madness is done
Is the crying of children,
And the birds in song

National pride and national anthems
Swell as the soldiers with precision march by
But somewhere in our world lies a child unburied
And the fighting continues

The first thing you’ll hear when this madness is done
Is the crying of children,
And the birds in song
