    Children of the revolution coming out to play
    Bombers ripped the night apart and blew the school away
    Some live on the south aide and they overlook the water
    Some live on the north side and they're looking at the border
    And those children of the revolution see the soldiers come
    Smiling at the widows as they take away the sons
    Children of the revolution shot down with a brand new gun
    They're dropping down like flies
    The images of war are in their eyes
    They've seen it all before and know your lies
    Won't keep their bellies full
    In love and war there are no rules

    Children of the revolution getting off the boat
    To face the ignorance and prejudice that keep this land afloat
    Running through the rubble of a thousand broken hearts and in their eyes
    All promises are broken in their eyes
    The words that can't be spoken and your lies
    Don't keep their bellies full
    In love and war there are no rules
    But in their eyes
    Murder comes by sea and from the skies
    It's shiny and it's quick to take their lives
    And if it's cruel in love and war there are no rules

    Children of the rvolution coming out to play
    Someone sells a gun and someone blows them all away
    Children of the revolution sold out by the banks
    Who swap the green upon the dollars for the green upon the tanks
    Children of the revolution shot down by a brand new gun
