    "Children's Crusade"

    Young men, soldiers, Nineteen Fourteen
    Marching through countries they'd never seen
    Virgins with rifles, a game of charades
    All for a Children's Crusade

    Pawns in the game are not victims of chance
    Strewn on the fields of Belgium and France
    Poppies for young men, death's bitter trade
    All of those young lives betrayed

    The children of England would never be slaves
    They're trapped on the wire and dying in waves
    The flower of England face down in the mud
    And stained in the blood of a whole generation

    Corpulent generals safe behind lines
    History's lessons drowned in red wine
    Poppies for young men, death's bitter trade
    All of those young lives betrayed
    All for a Children's Crusade

    The children of England would never be slaves
    They're trapped on the wire and dying in waves
    The flower of England face down in the mud
    And stained in the blood of a whole generation

    Midnight in Soho, Nineteen Eighty-four
    Fixing in doorways, opium slaves
    Poppies for young men, such bitter trade
    All of those young lives betrayed
    All for a Children's Crusade
