Child Soldier

by DavidTripp

Child Soldier- by David Tripp
Friday May 11, 2007
These children don’t cry because they’d get beat or shot,
They humanity just die even though its all they got
It’s where the devil lie, next to them in they cots
As unsteady arms apply the heroine shots
Which makes em impermeable to all the gun shots
They have no fear at all because ah what they taught sooo

Surviving child soldiers, survive for a reason
Because they got colder and war seasoned
They become bolder and inner daemoned
No father or mother holder to make pain easoned
A gun bigger and more then they could ever be
It gets simpler the more they kill professionally

They aimed an m16 where their families been
Close their eyes & dream,away all the nightmares they seen…
Little tortured worlds that are never escaped
Little tortured worlds that are never escaped
Child soldier… child soldier…

By 2010 43 million children will be orphaned by aids
Become children killing children men until this violence allays
The’ll be burnin’ up in the cauldron or launchin’ grenades
Live by the code of sin, as their humanity fades
The’ll love the kolishnikoff and the tricks they will learn
Pullin’ the trigger off and makin’ the enemies burn…

Their existence is spent on hardening their core
Trained for recruitment and spread like a spore
They’re just orphans a family togethore
They’re like hell spawn and daemons of lore
They run at the enemy screaming and naked
Magic and mythology if that’s how you take it
They were filled with love until it lost its’ use
Their life’s to rough from the child abuse
They contemplate your murder and how its all done
Shake like a Quaker contimplatin’ their own one

They’re gun brings control to a chaotic situation
Every trigger pull is self assured salvation
They have a vested interest in forgetting why they’re there
Breathing in unrest with every chamber of air
Panic held at the breach of surviving an attack
Learning the hate they teach, as the events loose track

They aimed an m16 where their families been
Close their eyes & dream,away all the nightmares they seen…
Little tortured worlds that are never escaped
Little tortured worlds that are never escaped
Child soldier… child soldier…
Children self educate on their environment
They reach meditative state on the time they’ve spent
Getting used to their fate as twisted and bent
Their long uzi gate and where bullets went
The things they’ve seen and what they hadda doo..
They’re killing fiends and other children too

The AK forty seven is 5 bucks on the market
One known utilization hope for luck and spark it
Their only salvation is hittin’ their target
Destroying all creation before they depart it
Known one situation, the rest? they forgot it
Imagine the humiliation if it was you who shot it
Because their family was their first who caught it
Flow through our economy because we who bought it
They protect the diamonds and precious minerals
To meet our demands and the death of our souls….

We provide the amo and the cold war guns
Spill the blood flow and cut the scar that runs
Through this history of continental slavery
Haunted by imagery of monumental depotchary
Which echoes through time in the voice of mothers
Haunted screams to the crime, as the inner child daemon uncovers

They aimed an m16 where their families been
Close their eyes & dream,away all the nightmares they seen…
Little tortured worlds that are never escaped
Little tortured worlds that are never escaped
Child soldier… child soldier…
