MENTALLY…
MURDERING THE CHILD IN ME 

Six years old..
Just about to start it
You’ve got to learn how to play the game
In the way they want it
Got to study hard…
But don’t ask no questions
Got to spend years in reading
Let the other do thinking
OH IT’S JUST A GAME..
A GAME WITH NO NAME

Ten years more…
You’re trying remember
How the time just ran so fast
How you look much older
Got to put on the mask…
Got to follow the orders
At school..Back at home …ohhhhhh
Oh my kid …
Now you are a perfect stranger
OH IT’S JUST A GAME
A GAME WITH NO NAME

Few years more..
You’re beginning to wonder
What the hell is it all about!!!!!!?
Shame on you..I’m a kid no longer
They steal your life…Murder your dreams
Are you still alive?….Do you have children..
Do you have a wife?
Oh my kid ……
Keep your back against the wall
Oh my god…
WHO ARE YOU !!!!
WHERE ARE YOU !!!
OH IT’S JUST A GAME
A GAME WITH NO NAME

And now they say…. HEAR…
Here comes the war
Look …
It’s hidden …Behind the wall
..Come on. ..
Have a gun and fight
Come on save our souls…..
MY POOR KID

What the war gave you?…
How the war left you..?
It made a killer of you…
It left you feel so blue
Come on run….
Have a place and hide…
TO A RIVER
A MOUNTAIN
OR A SEA…
THAT’S WHERE YOU SHOULD BE..
THAT’S WHERE YOU SHOULD BE..
