Hey Now, Behave Now

lyrics

Maybe it came from the time that they put him to sleep;
told him a tale that would numb him and shallow the deep;
much older now but he still likes to play with his toys,
like a boy, plays with sand, plays in a band.

Hey now, behave now.
"You have crossed the lines of youth too many times."
When the shopping malls and banks go down;
we will try to rebuild.
When it comes to kids with guns;
we look away without guilt.

Maybe it was in the songs that they played for the blind;
from the last chapter of a book that was left far behind
(hey i don't know);
all the boys and girls...they would laugh, they would cry,
they would run up the hill;
t'wards the sun, t'wards the sea-side, into the light.

Hey now, behave now.
"In the brightest rooms on earth there's fear too."
When the shopping malls and banks go down;
we will try to rebuild.
When it comes to kids with guns;
we look away without guilt.
