The Little Ones
Oh, they've killed all the Little Ones
While their faces still smiled
With their guns and their fury
They erased their young lives
No longer to laugh
No longer to be a child
Oh, they've killed all the Little Ones
While their faces still smiled
Now they're burying the Little Ones
And making their graves deep
So the world cannot see
That tonight we may sleep
While they wash away the blood
The mothers all weep
Oh, they're burying the Little Ones
And making their graves deep
Yet where will the devils go
When that day comes?
When the angels drag them out
To face The Little Ones
Oh they killed all the Little Ones
With their eyes open wide
There was nothing to help them
On the day that they died
No bed to run under
No cupboard to hide
Oh they've killed all the Little Ones
With their eyes open wide
They'll be raising The Little Ones
With no sin to atone
In the light of high Heaven
They will sit on tall thrones
Where playtime lasts forever
And God's Mercy never ends
They'll be raising the Little Ones
And they'll all be best friends
They'll be raising the Little Ones
And they'll all be best friends
