The use of children as soldiers has been universally condemned as abhorrent and unacceptable. Yet over the last ten years hundreds of thousands of children have fought and died in conflicts around the world.
Children involved in armed conflict are frequently killed or injured during combat or while carrying out other tasks. They are forced to engage in hazardous activities such as laying mines or explosives, as well as using weapons. Child soldiers are usually forced to live under harsh conditions with insufficient food and little or no access to healthcare. They are almost always treated brutally, subjected to beatings and humiliating treatment. Punishments for mistakes or desertion are often very severe. Girl soldiers are particularly at risk of rape, sexual harassment and abuse as well as being involved in combat and other tasks.
His parents died, shot in the head
Killed by his unit alone at night
They took the kid and gave him drugs
They gave him guns, taught him to kill..

He's still a child
But now a soldier
Can't comprehend
What's going on
[x2]

The gun's weight's almost too heavy
For his tiny little hands
All he learned has no more value
And he has lost all his friends
Only soldiers now surround him
Kids who used to be his pals
But the past is now forgotten,
He just went straight to hell

His mind is drugged, no feelings left
A perfect killer, who obeys?
Now he's killing the innocent
To get more orphans for recruitment..

He's still a child
But now a soldier
Can't comprehend
What's going on
[x2]

The gun's weight's almost too heavy
For his tiny little hands..
All he learned has no more value
And he has lost all his friends
Only soldiers now surround him,
Kids who used to be his pals
But the past is now forgotten,
He just went straight to hell..

The gun's weight's almost too heavy
For his tiny little hands..
All he learned has no more value
And he has lost all his friends
Only soldiers now surround him,
Kids who used to be his pals
But the past is now forgotten,
He just went straight to hell..
