Our statement against the misuse of children as soldiers. Taken from the album "reflected" (2011).

This song was written after Central Park heard the life story of a former child soldier at a UNICEF charity concert the band had played at. The
Angola-born Samuel Zombo retold his experiences as a 10-year-old child soldier. This first-hand account moved not only the audience but also the members of Central Park deeply.

Lyrics:

When I look into your face
Happiness without a trace
So small hands, they are misused
Innocent childhood is abused

Someone giving you a wink, just act, don't think
Staying in the marching row, just follow
The order is so clear, no time, no place to have fear

Those obsessed with power and greed
Selling the truth, sowing hatred's seed

No way out, you hear them shout
We're right inside the mass, fire coming over us
Nowhere to run, just hold on to your gun
They want you just like this, just take it like it is

No playing, children armed with guns
Helpless parents lose their sons
