We carry pain in our bloodline
Prove me wrong
(— took hold of our hearts and squeezed)

A little Syrian boy goes to play in the bombzone
A field of rhododendrons meets a war and withers

A child lets go of a balloon in Paris
And her soul takes flight with it
See you in the afterlife it calls
With the voice of a thousand
Angels in a booming choir
Only the child can hear

An old man walks his dog in
The golden meadows of Holland
While two doves twirl in the air
Above Prague
An atomic bomb bellows in
Hiroshima
And kills Time
[But for a moment]

Subjected to it all they shivered and shuddered
Crawled and slithered
Lashed and beaten and bruised
While two rhinoceroi had their horns cut bleeding and wailing
& 276 Nigerian girls were rounded up and herded away from their homes
& the famine in Ireland had them all on their knees
& Alexander the Two-Horned slaughtered the East
& 1000 whales trapped and terrified were clubbed and stabbed
& the waters churned as red as the sun that drank its fill when 
     6,000,000 Jews faded into the atmosphere
& a child lets go of a balloon in Paris
& a man walks his dog
& two doves twirl in the air
& we carry pain in our bloodline

Prove me wrong
