I was living in Tienanmen square

half the students of China were there

we spoke to the soldiers of changing our lives

they spoke to us about their children and their wives

 

how it happened no one really knows

an order from the top I suppose

I heard a bang I saw a flash

a student lay beside me with a fatal gash

 

there was confusion everywhere

some of the students knelt in prayer

the soldiers' actions were violent and rash

in two days they were sweeping people up like trash

 

now I think of Tienanmen square

and all the people who perished there

their bodies writhing and racked with pain

I know China will never be the same again
