Where is the smile gone
Behind a curtain it hides
Where is the pain gone
Can you not see it in their eyes
Little hands too afraid to reach out
Living in misery , they've gone numb
Can anyone tell them what its all about
They've been marked as pathetic and dumb
And they're told to hide their scars from the strangers
Or else they'll take them away
They're so scared of the night now
That they've stopped coming out in the day
Little minds fighting for innocence
There's nothing else left to fight for
Little hearts searching for answers
And confused by questions ever more
A bleak line separates them from the reality
An imagination they keep to themselves
Secrecy of the little eyes
A handful of goodbyes
But they march on like soldiers
They know that's the only way around
Pray for a little madness
And hope someday they would be found
They keep counting the stars at night
So they never forget how its like to be infinite
They light the candles of hope
That someday it shall bring them light
They look everywhere
for the man in the red suit
In the mirrors and the sand
With prayers and folded hands
As they sweat blood and tears
How much more can they bear
Insufferable thoughts haunts their dreams
Can anyone save them from these horrors unseen

Two of them stand in a dark corner
deep breath and a long pause
Is it true , one asks the other
Someone killed the Santa clause?
