Insignia....Tears of a Child

Provocation of a nation!
Without rest without respite,
Attacked attacked with all their might.
Raining, hailing, thundering down.
In the air and on the ground.

On the land and on the sea
Pillaging, burning, smothering me.
With no rest and no respite
Hammer, hammer, hammer, fight

There seems no wrong, there is no right
Glide down low and hold on tight
Swooping o’er rocky ground
Those jagged rocks are now renowned

Cold black vehicles filled the air
Lasers firing with ne’er a care
Running, hiding, stay down low
No place to hide, no where to go

Millions slaughtered, millions die
A shriek in heaven, shriek and cry
Mournful anguish … loss obscene
The cherished offspring of the queen

Royal blood and regal line
Must disperse there is no time
Fly, escape, lets get out quick
Where do we go, now there’s the lick

Sailing, silent; through space and time
Shocked and mourning; pain sublime
A distant star, a distant place
We’ll become a brand new race

A jewel….a diamond in the rough
A pearl so pure it made us laugh
And dance and sing and jump for joy
A brand new start, a brand new toy

And there set down so lightly come
A new life under yellow sun
With water blue and land so green
A paradise almost obscene

A life in peace with no despair
A life of love without a care
Yet hear the trumpet, hear the call
We will not die we will not fall

Pass on the knowledge, hand on the genes
While mating on the local scene
Now ever slowly we depart
For we’ve seeded now a brand new start

To grow and learn and thrive anew
To stand alone and earn their due
Star gate, star gate on the ground
Star gate, star will be found

You can arrive, you can come through
Come and give your folks their due
For we are near and watching close
Guiding, aiding without repose

We nurture, care and watch you grow
Now it’s your turn to fly and go
Lift yourselves into the air
Light as feathers, light as air

Only love will see you fly
Without love you’ll surely die
Disappear; gone without a trace
As if there was no human race.
