Lyrics

Close your eyes little child
Close your eyes for a little while

This world needs some healing
Everyone wants to be forgiven
Raise the flag on half mast
The colours of the rainbow are still overcast
Open your arms wide for broken hearts
Lonely men kill without any regards

Hope is lining up along the streets
Marching youth give old men a taste of defeat
No tear is ever shed in vain
They each find their place
Like every river finds the sea

Close your eyes little child
Close your eyes for a little while

Fishermen reel in bags full of plastic dreams
Left behind by a world with low self esteem
The prison grounds are the new cotton fields
Modern slaves work for pennies in the land of the free

Little tyrants trying to inject freedom into our veins
Terrified by the truth
Because the truth got nothing to gain
When will this madness ever end?
Smart screens shine bright like the promised land
But father time right up on our heels
One eye on the ones that have come to heal

Close your eyes little child
Close your eyes for a little while

Don’t you ever give up my dear
Even as wicked men keep the whole world in fear
There is light that shines through all our hearts
Everyone is created by the same odds

So, open your eyes little child
So, open your eyes for a little while
So, open your eyes my child
A better world awaits you
It might just take a little while
