lyrics by Jimmy Melia
Ooo we marched till the Dead of Dawn.
Told to wait for the whites of Their Eyes.
Barking dog and distant cries
Mother’s son and last goodbyes.
They give the reasons why we have to die.
Soldiers stumble stars of stage as politicians play their games.
Friends and family fall from stage as politicians play their games.
All to be but just a child to live a life in such denial
smell the trees feel the Breeze why fight the fight for man’s great greed.
Marching men must face their fears does Mother’s children take the field.
Stand Together side by side and fill the need from Mum’s great greed.
Soldiers stumble stars of stage as politicians play the game.
All the dreams are passed away. All the leaves that feed the trees.
Come to pass all hopes and dreams.
Children’s dreams of peace and love mother son and Last Goodbye
mother son and Last Goodbye, mother’s son Last Goodbye.
