The Cry of My Lai
Any man that would do this is bound to be
Possessed by the devil himself in disguise
They may set him free, but he'll still hear that small baby cry
Hey lieutenant, you're not god, don't you know
You're just a lieutenant, and the devil possesses your soul
Did the frightened child remind you of a smiling boy
Who plays war at home and the gun is only a toy
Did anyone pray to god that day, was he old enough to ask why
Hey lieutenant, can you still hear the small babies cry...
Has god grown weak and the devil grown strong in a man...
Hey lieutenant, will death set you free from My Lai
