lyrics

The cries of agony cannot disturb our sleep,
and the rain that shatters streets
will never penetrate our dreams,
our sacred dreams.

21 long centuries have produced a reality
in which we cannot move or speak
and the air's too hot for us to breathe,
and still we dream
our sacred dreams.

The newborn baby in your hands -
how will it ever understand?
Each night its tortured cries and screams
come round to vex your sleep
and haunt your dreams.

They haunt your dreams.
