This Darkest Song

How can we lighten this darkest song
through sun & moon's mystic eye
will humankind ever learn to get along

lost souls seeking a place to survive
how to right all this evil wrong
look into their terrified eyes

where has all the birdsongs gone

  3. I am wondering the same thing. Where have peoples' hearts gone? How can Russian soldiers fire upon civilians, on foot, trying to flee to safety? When they were told they were on a "military mission and humanitarian exercise"???????
