Parched throat search for laughter
Deserted trails under starless night
Stormy weather follows after
Frightened child's fearful flight
Shadows hiding teary eyes
In the closet there he cries
Silence sings loudly still
Shut up or we will kill
Rest among the denim trees
Terror turning into peace
Weary eyes they turn to sleep
Thank God for the bloody fleece
