lyrics

Give him a pencil and he'll draw gun,
A war, a terrified face a needle in the eye
Ask him why his head hurts and he will reply
If I do not see blood, a headache will occur

He grew up in the bush, no mother or father to discipline
Oh-oh the rebels they say they love him they teach him to fight, they teach him to hate, kill, oh destroy cold heart.
Oh oh oh oh oh oh


But I, I fear to sleep so I will walk to St. Mary’s, oh oh Oh,
I cry in my mind, cos when I think my heart it beeps

The L.R.A are his friends, along with AK47 |
Abducting friends his own age and hunting by the night.
The children they play war games to improve their fight,
all day they have no love, no conscience left or right.

Every night and sunrise my legs hurt again, I’d rather sleep so safely I’m doing my homework in dim light on the damp floor
One blanket to sleep. Oh oh oh oh oh oh, to sleep. Oh oh oh oh oh

But I, I fear to sleep, so I will walk to St Mary’s oh oh oh,
I cry in my mind, cos when I think my heart it beeps

But why? Why is I there no peace? Acholi tribe please don't captivate me Oh Oh Oh
I cry in my mind cos when I think my heart it beeps
