Child in silence - I've seen the way the tears
Run down your face
Child of violence - I know that you
Dying in this place
Child without mercy - they've haunted you with
Whispers in the dark
Child in exile--they violate and stain you
With their mark
Child - this silent seduction enrages me
Child - the fatal assassin's black eyes will bleed
Child in silence, I know who you are
Child, you're lost and alone in the dark
Child, I know that you're hurting inside
Child, I've seen your affections denied
Child in turmoil, I know where you've been
Child in darkness, I've seen what you've seen
In the night, in this fear of letting go of the light
I hear you calling me home
Child - no one shall covet your dreams tonight
Child - the tyrant will cry in the streams of light
Child in silence, I have seen your dreams
Child in darkness, I've heard when you scream in the night
In this fear of letting go, in the light
I'll be standing there to hold you
