dinkas when i close my eyes lyrics – against all authority

night falls like the silence over sudan
where children run like the blood on the sand
and i can taste it like the dust that chokes this land
a government sponsored slavery plan
lined up like cattle at an auction deprived
of everything that you and i have ever known
all alone, wearing only the dreams of their far away home
back to the market
of endless profit
impoverished in famine, set me free
a never ending cycle of slavery
a cowardly silence plagues our land, where children are stolen from the dinka clan
and i can taste smokescreen that chokes this land
a government sponsored slavery plan
branded like cattle at an auction deprived
of everything that you and i’ve ever known
all alone, wearing only the dreams of their far away home
i just want to close my eyes
i don’t want to agonize
over people i don’t know
i was asleep until you woke me up
and now i see thee faces
of these kids in foreign places
when i close my eyes

/ against all authority lyrics
