"Where do the children go?" as written by Rob Hyman and Eric M Bazilian....
Surrender into the night.
Silently take my hand.
Nobody knows what's inside us.
Nobody understands.
They handed us down a dream
To live in this lovely town.
But nobody hears the music,
Only the echo of a hollow sound.

Where do the children go,
Between the bright night and darkest day?
Where do the children go?
And who's that deadly piper who leads them away?

Together we make our way
Passengers on a train.
Whisper a secret forever.
Promises in the rain.
We're leaving it all behind,
While castles are falling down.
We're going where no one can find us.
And if there's a heaven,
We'll find it somehow.

Where do the children go,
Between the bright night and darkest day?
Where do the children go?
And who's that deadly piper who leads them away?

    Song MeaningFor me Where Do the Children Go reminds me of back in the mid-eighties when I lost a girlfriend to crack and other drugs. i remember listening to this song after being up most of the night wondering where she was.

    More info below;
    Where Do the Children Go was written about 3 teenage friends in Pennsylvania who committed suicide in the mid-eighties.
    Below is a quote from a "The Morning Call

    "Michelle E. Qurashi's body was found on Jan. 28, 1984, near a rural road in Richland Township with a gunshot wound of the chest. The 16-year-old had been despondent over the death of her boyfriend, Marc Landis, 17, who, along with another Quakertown Community High School student, Daniel Furdock, 16, jumped to their deaths Nov. 19, 1983 into an East Rockhill Township quarry"
