    African Children

    Written by: Mario Vitale

    African Children

    they sleep at night with belly's empty
    rolling in the dirt to comfort their sore's
    hands, eyes, feet
    Marley & Tosh sang of their freedom's cry

    Torn illumination
    Elephant screams
    Disappearing act through the night
    A call to provide U.N.I.C.E.F. to their great cause

    Blood soaked streets with the militia in upheaval
    tired politicians in support of apartheid
    run to the hills with cheap thrills
    A balance of power

    Mandela's voice is still heard beyond the grave
    Desmond Tutu reclaims his title and cause for freedom's cry
    Bono can only do so much
    A beacon of light to a hurting world in need of love

    Equal rights & justice for all of Africa's children
    how you had fought so hard and fierce
    there truest love is gone from here
    A challenge to be free is a question of time

    One solution is using their minds
    Living on the edge and its going to their heads
    Sitting up at night all alone in bed
    Following the rainbow to the sky

    We see a vision of them pass right by
    There war were in is almost over
    It's so hard to believe but they love each other.
    Celebrate Beko and the freedom's call
