Toy soldiers

Toy soldiers playing with our guns,

toy soldiers as kids we had such fun

but as I grew up I started to understand,

the guns are the merchants of death,

in the hands of those who have no compunction to kill

for those who get some kind of thrill,

from taking somebodies life

and I don’t think that’s right,

for I know the preciousness of life.

Toy soldiers playing with our guns,

toy soldiers as kids we had such fun

but then we never really wanted to kill anyone,

when we were young,

now I hate the violence that they breed

among human beings who can not see,

that killing anyone is a crime against humanity

and I won’t be coerced in to the belief,

that sometimes it is justified to take away another’s life,

to derive some perverse delight,

of having so much power within their hands,

why is it they just won’t understand,

there never is a good reason

to shoot everybody down.

Toy soldiers playing with our guns,

toy soldiers as kids we had such fun

but then we never really wanted to kill anyone,

when we were young and innocent.
