Don't look now, child
The world has gone to war
They don't care that you're just a child
To them, you're one soldier more.
Those aren't gunshots you hear now
Those aren't dying screams
Your virgin eyes are so innocent now
While safety has been reduced to a dream.
Close your eyes, precious babe
Someday, we'll be safe again
If we wake, precious babe
The world will lie still and slain.
