❝ Sometimes you know I think that I
Will surely go insane
Got suicide and murder
Runnin’ in and out my brain
I dream of love, I dream of hate
I dream of death and pain
But no matter how I try
The dream remains the same
The same
All the little piggies
Up against the wall
All little piggies ‘gainst the wall (‘Gainst the wall)
One little piggy
Catch a bullet and he falls
Now there’s one less piggy ‘gainst the wall (‘Gainst the wall)
Next little piggy
Gets a bullet in the eye (Bullet in the eye)
Last little piggy
Falls to his knees and cries
Then he’s blown away, blown away
Blown away
Bless all the children of the world
Give us all a chance to grow and live
Give us all you have to give
Bless the children of the world
Bless the children of the world
We’re the ones who’ll have to carry on
Even though all hope is gone
Bless the children of the world
All we need is understanding
A sign to show us that you care
It isn’t love that we’re demanding
Just be there
Bless the children of the world
All we want is just to live our life
All we ask is to be free
Let it be
And bless the children of the world
Please bless us
Bless the children
Bless us
Bless the children of the world❞
