Children Of The Grave


Revolution in their mind,
The children start to march.
Against the world in which they have to live
And all the hate that’s in their hearts.
They’re tired of being bossed around and told just what to do.
With the right your world until they won
And love comes flowing through yeah

Children of tomorrow’s world the children of today.
Will the sun rise of tomorrow bring in peace in any way.
It’s a world in the shadow of atomic fear.
Can they win the fight for peace or will they disappear yeah

So you children of the world,
Listen to what I say.
If you want to make a place to live in
Send a word today.
Though the world at love is still a lie, you must be brave,
All you children of today are children of the grave yeah.
