I need city lights
Defense and weaponry
No way of knowing

I learn resistance
Like I learn to see

Between you and me
I'm a war child

My occupation
Is being occupied
I stop at the corner
To be identified

Across the border
They pretend victory
I'm playing in the rubble
And dream a destiny

We hear of "the troubles" on the nightly news
PLO lovers courting after the curfew
Your father and brother have the West Bank blues

You weren't discovered by Khmer Rouge
We hear of "the troubles" on the nightly news
PLO lovers courting after the curfew
Your father and brother have the West Bank blues

I'm a war child
I'm a war baby
I'm a war child
I'm a war baby
I'm a war child
