Point the camera at the baby
Shoot the mother giving birth
Watch the blood run down the table
Close-up to the after-birth
Push the mike into the mouth of the wound
Tape the sound of fading life
Edit out the sounds of displease
Ask the feelings of a dead man's wife
Pretend the camera doesnt't't change things
Send me a few images in only one eye
A soldier poses, then pulls the trigger
