A Nation Rocked to Sleep

Carly Sheehan
Lingua: Inglese



Have you ever heard the sound of a mother screaming for her son?
The torrential rains of a mother's weeping will never be done,
They say he's a hero, you should be glad he's one, but
Have you ever heard the sound of a mother screaming for her son?‎

Have you ever heard that sound of a father holding back his cries?
He must be brave because his boy died for another man's lies,
The only thing he allows himself is long deep sighs,
Have you ever heard the sound of a father holding back his cries?‎

Have you ever heard the sound of taps played at your brother's grave?
They say he died so the flag will continue to wave,
but I believe he died because they had oil to save.
Have you ever heard the sound of taps played at your brother's grave?‎

Have you ever heard the sound of a nation rocked to sleep?
The leaders want to keep you numb so the pain won't be so deep, but
If we the people let them continue, another mother will weep…
Have you ever heard the sound of a nation rocked to sleep?‎
