in the beautiful golden sunshine
beneath the canopy of lush, life-giving green
where birds sing praises for every breath
beside the sparkling waters of the stream
the beautiful children are killing each other

the sun shines on
painting the green in golden light
and turning the waters to liquid diamonds
with the music of life all around
the beautiful children scream and cry and hate

but when the fighting stops
the trees will be cut down
the animals will be hunted to extinction
the stream will be blackened with oil
and the sky will be darkened with the smoke
of their industry, their progress, their unity

let them fight
forever children
never growing up
