Lyrics & Music by Kenn Gordon and Mark Coleshaw
Album: Voice Of Resistance

"This is a sad song for the murdered children of Beslan
"We wrote this song to raise funds for the appeal following the Disaster at Beslan where children were murdered
On its release on its first night on the internet in the chat forum "Paltalk" in the radio room "Voices Of Resistance" the song raised £10,000 and went on to be the driving force for a large concert here in Lincoln in which 10 bands took part to raise funds for Beslan and the Homeless of Lincoln"

In a town in Russia young children lost their lives
Blood and tears and anger is all they left behind..
It is human nature -That we try to blame
For the hurt and suffering dished out in your name..

On the streets of Teheran, Belfast and Madrid
The body count is growing -it's the devils gig
Holy men are preaching, Death and hate and pain
God if you can hear us -stop their bloody game.

In a town in Russia young children lost their lives
Blood and tears and anger is all they left behind..
It is human nature -that we try to blame
For the hurt and suffering dished out in your name.

The plague of human nature takes us one by one
Promises us a better place then arms us with a gun
So God if you are listening give me some advice
Should we call you Allah or maybe Jesus Christ.

In a town in Russia young children lost their lives
Blood and tears and anger is all they left behind..
It is human nature, That we try to blame
For the hurt and suffering dished out in your name..


I sit on my sofa and watch the TV news
I see the faces looking back with nothing left to lose
Whether it's a Muslim, a Christian or a Jew
When you have got nothing left -the pain it looks the same.

In a town in Russia young children lost their lives
Blood and tears and anger is all they left behind..
It is human nature, that we try to blame
For the hurt and suffering -dished out in your name..

In a town in Russia young children lost their lives
Blood and tears and anger is all they left behind…

It is human nature, that we try to blame
For the hurt and suffering dished out in your name.
