  • To ageless gentle children with sparkle in their eyes
    And all the while She watches and waits her monstrous chance
    To terminate the dreaming in all our song and dance

    Chorus: The quiet lies of dreaming
    Remain in spite of time
    And all her evil scheming
    Cannot cull the magic rhyme
    I am the locust and I sing the locust song
    Sing along

    People laughing, breathing, turn to robots as I watch
    And isolation claims them as they shrink from human touch
    And She has many victories but still my lies live on
    And they will grow and flourish when her dark machine has gone

    Each generation brings the ones with sparkle eyes
    The children She has not suborned with all her glib replies
    And some day when the ones who dream rise up to take their stand
    The children of the locust will bring magic to the land
