The Child

This song is by Gatsbys American Dream and appears on the album Why We Fight (2002).

Glorious light covers him tonight
Him: unaware and silent, six years old and sleeping
The rest of us: dying and waiting for him to grow old
Old enough to save us
Yeah, so save us
Green glorious light covers him tonight
One hundred twenty volts wired straight to his soul, but beyond the hills a shadow is falling through the valley of ashes where death meets destruction
Ya, so lead us
The reign of death will die and we will strike keepin' on his perseverance merits preservation
Our enemies sails will hang on broken masts and their tackle will be rendered useless
Sometimes it takes the mind of a child to overcome
If it's what you've found, trust what you see
Ask: is there something wrong with this picture? And take it over
