Dinkas When I Close My Eyes

This song is by Against All Authority and appears on the album 24 Hour Roadside Resistance (2000).

VERSE1:
Night falls like the silence over Sudan
Where children run like the blood on the sand
And I can taste it like the dust that chokes this land
A government sponsored slavery plan
Lined up like cattle at an auction deprived
Of everything that you and I have ever known
All alone, wearing only the dreams of their far away home

CHORUS:
Back to the market
Of endless profit
Impoverished in famine, set me free
A never ending cycle of slavery

VERSE 2:
A cowardly silence plagues our land, where children are stolen from the Dinka clan
And I can taste smokescreen that chokes this land
A government sponsored slavery plan
Branded like cattle at an auction deprived
Of everything that you and I've ever known
All alone, wearing only the dreams of their far away home

CHORUS:
Back to the market
Of endless profit
Impoverished in famine, set me free
A never ending cycle of slavery

I just want to close my eyes
I don't want to agonize
Over people I don't know
I was asleep until you woke me up
And now I see thee faces
Of these kids in foreign places
When I close my eyes
