Lyrics
Oh the boy had a dream,
He once had a mind of his own,
So they took it away,
And quickly the damage is done.
Yes the heart disappears,
And gives way to despair,
They've got schemes and ideas,
But no loving and care.
And it needs that much more, needs it much more.

Well so much for your schemes,
So much for the things that you say,
While you're out chasing votes,
He's out chasing dragons all day.
So another child dies,
One more baby in black,
and the mother she cries,
As she's starting to crack,
And she can't take much more, no she can't take much more.

How many more times, must they shatter our trust,
Do we sit in silence,or stand up and scream in disgust.

I still have a dream,
I still have a mind of my own,
They won't take it away,
Because I see the damages they've done.
I see one more boy dies,
One more baby in black,
hear a mother who cries,
But that don't bring him back.

How many times must we stand for their lies,
As the crocodile tears fill their eyes,
The suffering and hardship is not going to fall,
Try to call them again,
Because I can't take much more,
It's worth fighting for,
And we need love much more...
