"Share a word of love with your friends
Share a word of love with your friends
If you have a little friend
Shake hands with her or him
Share a word of love with your friends"

But who am I
I stand alone
From conception til now
I stand alone

Sucking on bones
To fight off hunger
There's a scythe swinging to and forth
And it has my number

Staring at the ceiling I can see each one of them
Children circling a tree reciting a hymn
Off in the distance away from the tree
I see one alone, I see me

The chanting is enticing I want to join in
But there's danger about and evil on the wind
The group constantly grows there's fun to be had
To watch their merriment is oh so sad

The noise level is raised
The tempo is increased
The wind is picking up
I can hear the hoof beats

Off on the hills
Standing guard at the gate
Skeltons sitting upon horseback
Destroyers of childhood, Corporate

To them this merriment is such an intrusion
And stopping the noise is stopping pollution
To dance and sing is such a waste
Hurry and grow up lets stop the waste

They swooped down on the children, swords all drawn
Only suits and uniforms will now be worn
All minds are now officially entered
All fun will now be officially censored

Now there's only one singing below that tree
Trying to form a circle alone, that's me
Corporate has stolen each one of them
Leaving me alone to sing my hymn

"Share a word of love with your friends
Share a word of love with your friends
If you have a little friend
Take time with her or him
Share a word of love with your friends"
