Half Mile Down Before the sun comes up each morning I’m on my way a half mile down It’s darker here than the middle of the night Me and the boys have got no choice There’s nothing else we know We’ve been headed here since we were all of five years old We work our hands to the bone And breath the dust Because the company says we must To bring coal out of the West Virginia hills You see the old men coughing Hear them talking about wasting their lives You see the pain in their eyes Then you look at your children Wondering what they could be If they only had the chance Up in Nova Scotia a mine collapsed They said the cause was a methane blast The company tries to act concerned They try to cut their loses And save the profits Knowing they must say what’s proper “Those workers, they are foremost on our minds.” Rescue crews found eleven who died There’s fifteen more trapped inside Their families hang on every word

Diamonds and Pearls Come all you children Won’t you heed the call The piper, he will lead you Marching up and down this hall You know we all had the chance To make a better day But this crazy world has it’s own ideas And ends up getting in the way We will always be The children of this world Fighting among ourselves Like schoolyard boys and girls We will always be The children of this world Seeking out The diamonds The diamonds and the pearls Sleep you weary children It has been a long, long day The night, it is quiet Keeping the world at bay We rest our bodies We rest our souls No matter what we believe We keep on doing what we’re told We will always be The children of this world Fighting among ourselves Like schoolyard boys and girls We will always be The children of this world Seeking out The diamonds The diamonds The diamonds and the pearls We will always be The children of this world We will always be The children of this world Good morning children Welcome to this brand new day The piper’s calling If you follow, he will lead the way We will always be The children of this world Fighting among ourselves Like schoolyard boys and girls We will always be The children of this world Seeking out The diamonds
