"Dedicated to the children of Uganda who are hiding from forced induction into an army of slaves. And to so many other children around the world whom no one sees, for whom no one cares and who die alone."

SONG OF SORROW

Every day I read the paper, smug and happy with my life.
Put the coffee on to perc and wipe the sleepy from my eyes.
Good or bad news doesn’t touch me, all that stuff’s for other guys.
Showered, dressed it’s time for breakfast, tummy's filled with happy sighs.

Chorus: While I drink my cup of coffee, three more children die.

They run at night the darkness trembles, hides a million evil eyes.
Tiny feet move weary bodies seeking somewhere safe to hide.
The soldiers come without warning. Those they catch are forced to fight.
Tiny kids turn into killers and no one hears the children cry.

Chorus: And while I drink my cup of coffee, ten more children die.

The earth is filled with rage and hatred. We cover up with pretty lies.
We keep our own kids safe and happy; tuck them into bed at night.
Shut the windows lock our doors; forget the children out of sight.
We climb into our warm soft covers; kiss our spouse, turn out the light.

Chorus: While we softly drift to sleep a dozen children die.

Alarm goes off I get the paper, smug and happy with my life.
Put the coffee on to perc and wipe the sleepy from my eyes.

And while I drink my cup of coffee a million children die.

Who will care and who will see while precious children die.
