Testo trovato qui
A Child s Guide To Good And Evil

Da uno dei gruppi più rappresentativi della psichedelia dei 60 un testo durissimo che allude alla ‎guerra in Vietnam, alla sua spettacolarizzazione ed all’indifferenza o assuefazione di molti ‎americani di fronte al quotidiano, raccapricciante spettacolo di “un bambino appena nato bruciato ‎vivo”. ‎




D’altra parte, in quegli anni “il Napalm era perfetto per donne e bambini”…‎
A child of a few hours is burning to death
Her eyes are full of smoke, her mouth is full of fire
Napalm is perfect for women and children
Forgive us, forgive us
We should have called Suzie and Bobby, they like to watch fires

Pretend it's not happening, it will be clipped of tomorrow's new show
After the funeral, after the feast, baby, with so many bodies at our feet
We should have called Suzie and Bobby, they like to watch fires

We all are nothing but soft, moist people, with soft, moist hands
Folded over our buttons, silently sleeping, cold and unmoving, doing nothing
We should have called Suzie and Bobby, they like to watch fires

A child of a few hours is burning to death
Her eyes are full of smoke, her mouth is full of fire
Napalm is perfect for women and children
