Happy Rhodes - The Keep (1995) - 10 - "Look For The Child" (acoustic)



AUDIO ONLY. Happy Rhodes - The Keep (1995) - 10 - "Look For The Child" (acoustic)

Lyrics:

Look For The Child (4:20)
From Radio-only Promo CD, Spring 1995
Original version on Ecto (1986/1992 CD bonus track)

I want to know what the child would do
In place of me and you
I want to know what the babe would say
To make the anger dissipate
If whole naivete could only rule our world
We might at last have peace and all our animals
Pure unbridled joy

Look for the child, free of influence
And you'll find your teacher

Why are you all crying?
Why did Daddy die?
Doesn't that man have a home?
Mommy

You know the child can only learn hate
From the actions of our adults
For we kill, we mame, we torture
What would become of the babe who grows
Without a parent's complex fears
Petty jealousy, petty lies

Look for the child, free of influence
And you'll find your teacher

Why are you all crying?
Why did Daddy die?
Doesn't that man have a home?
When I grow up, will I be just like you
Mommy?
Mommy?

When the ships come down from the sky
To mingle with our people
Will it be easy to choose a representative?
I want to know what the babe would ask
Of our alien visitors
Where are your toys? Will you be my friend?

Look for the child, free of influence
And you'll have your leader
Let 'em lead

Why are you all crying?
Why did Daddy die?
Doesn't that man have a home?
When I grow up, will I be just like you
Mommy?
Why are you all crying?
Why did Daddy die?
Doesn't that man have a home?
When I grow up, will I be just like you
Mommy?
Mommy?
Mommy?
