Those That Die
(Emitt Rhodes)


Single, 1972
emitt-rhodes
Little children live in hanoi
hoping that the bombs won't drop
they no longer cares who's master
only let the bleeding stop

Tame the lion
now he's tasted blood
it can be done with one great blow
tame the lion
now he's tasted blood
he's killing when we say no

Little children live in saigon
kneeling down on severed limbs
they no longer care who's master
only let the fighting end

Tame the lion
now he's tasted blood
it can be done with one great blow
tame the lion
now he's tasted blood
he's killing when we say no

Are those that die
so soon forgotten
that we won't miss one more
this sacred life, this holy garden
this evil endless war

Frightened mother holds her children
heaven knows it's not their fault
they no longer care who's master
just the killing to a hault

Tame the lion
now he's tasted blood
it can be done with one great blow
tame the lion
now he's tasted blood
he's killing when we say no

Are those that die
so soon forgotten
that we won't miss one more
this sacred life, this holy garden
this evil endless war

Little children live in hanoi
hoping that the bombs won't drop
they no longer cares who's master
only let the bleeding stop

Tame the lion
now he's tasted blood
it can be done with one great blow
tame the lion
now he's tasted blood
he's killing when we say no.
