I will
Lay me down
In a bunker
Underground

I won't let this happen
To my children
Meet the real-world coming
Out of your shell

With white elephants
Sitting ducks
I will
Rise up

Little baby's eyes
Eyes, eyes, eyes
Little baby's eyes
Eyes, eyes, eyes

Little baby's eyes
Eyes
Eyes

    General Commentwhen i first heard this song in meeting people is easy (it was just the harmony part at the end of the song) the notes were so perfect and so desperate...and i thought to myself "this is the most beautiful melody i have ever heard". now that i have heard the entire song and melody that goes with the harmony...it just really tears at my heart.

    what i think this song means:
    the above comment about it being about war may very well be true. thom is very political and it seems to make perfect sence. however, when i think about the lyrics, i saw something different. the part at the end "little babies' eyes" reminded me that thom just had a child, and maybe this song is a sort of lullabye for his child. he doesnt want what happened to him to happen to his children...white elephants might have something to do with republicans.. (in my version of the song, he sings "with white elephants/ sitting ducks/ i will/ rise up") so im gonna put two ideas together.. maybe this song is about protecting your children from war. or about thom wanting to protect his child from war.

    i hope you folks could follow my thoughts...im a bit scatterbrained.
