"Milking" as written by and Satomi Matsuzaki John Dieterich....
And all the kids are looking down
And all the kids hear marching sounds
They all see the armies on the ground
And all the kids are looking down

Gun fire after another
Hear the fire going higher

There is a castle in the air
And all the kids are trapped in there
There is a king, they don't know where
There is a castle in the air

Gunfire after another
Bright fire shooting higher

And the boys cried out but they can't get through to you, through to you
And the king cried out but he can't be true to you, true to you

If all the kids could reach to see
They wonder who the king would be
A little boy who looks like me
If all the kids could reach to see

    General CommentI think this is clearly an anti-war song.
    Kids looking down while the army marches, gunfire and destruction around them, while they are kept away from it all in castles in the air (= dreams/plans that are unlikely to happen). The king (= political elite) doesn't care if kids (= pureness, good nature) cry out; the king also cries out, but shouting lies. If kids were to choose who would lead them, the king wouldn't certainly be their leader; instead, it would be an ordinary person.
