CHILD OF TOMORROW

Come, my dear, now we must flee
We can't stay another day
Keep close by and stay with me
And just pray we find the way
Where we can hide
Where we can go
And you give birth to the child of tomorrow

Hide you 'neath this pile of stone
Keep you here till I return
Don't forget just what you own
And, someday, this world will learn
That ne'er were we so filled with woe
That we gave life to the child of tomorrow

Come, my dear, now we might save
This foolish world of ours today
Come, my dear, now we might pave
A happier road to new-born days
And sooner than we'll ever know
You will give birth to the child of tomorrow

Hold him deep within thy womb
Hide you here until that day
For this world may be our tomb
If we do not hope and pray
That from the Earth we soon might go
And you give birth to the child of tomorrow
