Can you see children marching, marching?

Can you see children marching, marching?

Can you see children marching, marching,

Marching off to fight Kony's war?

Can you hear those children crying, crying?

Can you hear those children crying, crying?

Can you hear those children crying, crying,

Crying out for their murdered moms?

Can you taste the innocence that is fleeing, fleeing?

Can you taste the innocence that is fleeing, fleeing?

Can you taste the innocence that is fleeing, fleeing,

As Kony kills their will to feel?

Can you smell that which is bleeding, bleeding?

Can you smell that which is bleeding, bleeding?

Can you smell that which is bleeding, bleeding

When Kony uses them as human shields?

Can you feel these children dying, dying?

Can you feel these children dying, dying?

Can you feel these children dying, dying,

Dying alone on an invisible battlefield?

No matter who you are....

-

No matter where you come from...

-

Or what your political and spiritual beliefs are...

-

Use your voice to make sure that...
