Lyrics

Once you see them
You never forget them
Once they take hold of you
They never let you go
Traveling across the seas
To a paradise
Is where I first saw
The sad, sad eyes

So many children
So much humiliation
So many children
So much quiet desperation
So many children
So many tears to fill their sad eyes

Desperate souls fill the streets
Hoping to find a dream
Dare to look into the eyes
And see their crying need
So many sad eyes
Fighting their way just to survive
A fate they can't escape
An innocent sacrifice

So many children
So much humiliation
So many children
So much quiet desperation
So many children
So many tears to fill their sad eyes
