    Lyrics

    Sons of the thief, sons of the saint
    Who is the child with no complaint
    Sons of the great or sons unknown
    All were children like your own
    The same sweet smiles, the same sad tears
    The cries at night, the nightmare fears
    Sons of the great or sons unknown
    All were children like your own

    So long ago: long, long, ago

    But sons of tycoons or sons of the farms
    All of the children ran from your arms
    Through fields of gold, through fields of ruin
    All of the children vanished too soon
    In towering waves, in walls of flesh
    Among dying birds trembling with death
    Sons of tycoons or sons of the farms
    All of the children ran from your arms

    So long ago: long, long, ago

    But sons of your sons or sons passing by
    Children we lost in lullabies
    Sons of true love or sons of regret
    All of the sons you cannot forget
    Some built the roads, some wrote the poems
    Some went to war, some never came home
    Sons of your sons or sons passing by
    Children we lost in lullabies

    So long ago: long, long, ago

    But, sons of the thief, sons of the saint
    Who is the child with no complaint
    Sons of the great or sons unknown
    All were children like your own
    The same sweet smiles, the same sad tears
    The cries at night, the nightmare fears
    Sons of the great or sons unknown
    All were children like your own.
