Empty houses in an empty street
trampling the rubble left beneath your feet,
trying to survive marching to the beat
survival of the fittest is just
destruction of the weak.

You’re a war child born in the zone,
you’re a war child born without a home,
you’re a war child born to be alone
born to find a soul,
you’re a war child nowhere left to go.

Empty fields barren no more crops
nothing left here now the water stopped.
Trying your best to keep your head up high
but low enough to make sure you don’t die.

You‘re a war child struggling to survive,
you’re a war child just glad to be alive,
you’re a war child taking what you can,
you’re a war child feeling all the pain.

The noise of the screams, the noise of the shouts
the sound of hatred can’t be blotted out.
Your hands on your ears and locked bedroom door
poor defence-against, images and roars

You’re a war child born to the streets.
You’re a war child you’re in too deep
pretend that you don’t see
you’re a war child hoping for a dream.
