Performance video of our track 'Killers Of New Youth' inspired by KONY 2012. Filmed & Edited by 4 Fold Film Productions. FREE MP3: http://soundcloud.com/raoolworld/kony

Our song is the story of a boy whose childhood innocence is robbed by the brutal murder of his parents. With no home and little other choice the boy is inadvertently recruited into an army as a child rebel soldier. Despite only seeking sanctum in others whose experiences mirror his own, he soon finds himself forced to kill at the behest of those in charge. His transition from victim to reluctant killer highlights the vicious cycle impacting child rebel soldiers.

LYRICS:
_____________

Leap and splash
Spring water crash
Water hella pure and he be diving into that
Like a baptism bath like swimming in mass
And the waters pure as him so when he swims it's a match

Ain't no drama
I mean this is nirvana
Surrounded by such natural beauty where could it be finer?

Now how could this be dire?
For him he's just a minor
Hops up out the lake coz the sunset means it time up

Gets ready real scruffy u know boys and their attire
Plus he know he cant be late coz his daddy told him prior
Barely dried himself but the walk will help him dry up
Before he sets off home he picks mama up a flower

And then he just...huh
Hits the path
Cutting through the grass
Carefree but it scarcely wont last
He sees his village what he sees it stops him in his tracks
He gasp when he sees the smoke he drops the flower makes a dash

This ain't home




This aint right did he get lost walking at night
Hears the shouts loud aint doubt now all his fears are realised
There's so much blood all that red mud sends a chill right down his spine
Thoughts of his parents are they alive it makes him vomit out of fright
Argh

Stands
Then enters in his land
A blood drenched carcass the remainders of his dad
Lets out cry for mother but then sees her frail hand
He picks her up, her lips cut off then just before she pass
She say...

K.O.N.Y, K.O.N.Y
Killers Of New Youth
X2

His on his knees
He looks up at the sky why'd do this to me
Had faith but tell me why? Were we all just naïve




You gave me a heaven but let the devil run free
Why not come and take me
Now there's nothing for me

His parents had died but he cant bear to let it be
And though he did try he cant reverse mortality




He knows it inside him he got no option but to leave
So he walks out on his village and with it humanity

No desire no
Heart cold empty soul
Walking through the jungle like a nomad he's alone
Months go time rolls
Days goes night falls
Wakes up, one night to find boy above him standing tall

He panics rose to fight him
The boy he calms him down and
Gives him some water reassures him that he means no harm and
They get to talking hit it off and then he gets invited
To join their camp he takes a chance it cant be worst than now is ...

Huh
As time would flow
That camp he'll call it home
He lost his parents like many others he aint alone
And all them broken souls when
Together make a whole
So they all do as they told
All commandments
Get followed
Oh...




How fate would call
That point that fork in road
Becoming a soldier given a gun and told to lock and load
When he march on a village like he lived in
Takes his first soul
A mother with her kid
He pulls the trigger bang there she goes....
