Blood on my hands children’s blood

Blood on my hands children’s blood
I let them be killed as aside I stood

Maimed and scared by my own hand
Is there forgiveness in any land?

Blood on my hands for I did not care
Enough to act on their anguished stare

I let it all happen – yes I stood by
And children then like you and I

Are now without fathers, mothers, friends
Oh when will the killing come to an end?

Why should we bother if a person’s skin
Is light or dark or in between

If they come from far or come from near
We must remove the children’s fear

Blood on my hands blood on my hands

Blood on my hands children’s blood
