Lyrics:

SUFFICE


V
In the crossfire, in their streets
They march with guns and the children quickly move their feet
He goes to help them, is shot in front of their eyes
As rocks and stones hail, garbage cans ignite

B
Garbage bombs lead them back
The children cover their attack
The guns they don't shoot at them
They take it for granted but we don't
We only know what the news will suffice.

CH
The child of revolution is the victim
The child of revolution is the victim
The child the child the child the child

V
Dreams of nightmares without closing their eyes
As the bombs and the guns ring their minds
Gunshots confusion close the door
But don't close the door on them

Instrumental Bridge

CH
The child of revolution
The child of revolution
The child the child the child the child
V
Some of us run and hide and some of us commit the suicide
While others try to help their cause but they don't realize
That nothing can be done if we don't see the news
Through our own eyes our

CH
Own
Our own
The child one and all
We are the children
You are that child
