BLOOD IS ON THE SQUARE 
wordsand music by Phillip Morgan 

A song was heard in China
in the city of Beijing.
In the spring of 1989
you could hear the people sing.
And it was the song of freedom
that was ringing in the square,
the world could feel the passion of
the people gathered there.
Oh children, blood is on the square. 

For many nights and many days,
waiting in the square.
"To build a better nation"
was the song that echoed there.
"For we are China's children,
we love our native land,
for brotherhood and freedom
we are joining hand in hand."
Oh children, blood is on the square. 

Then came the People's army
with trucks and tanks and guns.
The government was frightened
of their daughters and their sons.
But in the square was courage and
a vision true and fair,
the Army of the People would not harm
the young ones there.
Oh children, blood is on the square. 

On June the 3rd in China,
in the spring of '89,
an order came from high above
and passed on down the line.
The soldiers opened fire,
young people bled and died,
the blood of thousands on the square
that lies can never hide.
Oh children, blood is on the square. 

For four more days of fury
the people faced the guns.
How many thousands slaughtered
when their grisly work was done?
they quickly burned the bodies
to hide their coward's shame,
but blood is thick upon their hands and
darkness on their names.
Oh children, blood is on the square. 

There are tears that flow in China
for her children that are gone.
There is fear and there is hiding,
for the killing still goes on.
And the iron hand of terror can
buy silence for today,
but the blood that lies upon the square
cannot be washed away.
Oh children, blood is on the square.

 

浴血廣場

歌弦嚮自神州大地的北京城。
一九八九年之春,
你能聽聞人民的詠唱,
傳遍廣場的是一闕嚮往自由之歌,
全世界皆能感應到中國人民上街集結的激情。
噢,孩子, 您浴血廣場。

很多個不息的晝夜,
守候在廣場。
"為了建設更美好祖國"的歌聲在這裡迴盪。
作為中國的未來棟樑, 我們熱愛我們的祖國,
為了手足般的憂戚與共,為了奔向自由,
我們手牽著手。"
噢,孩子, 您浴血廣場。

當人民的子弟兵驅著軍車坦克,并持著槍炮駕臨,
政府被他們的兒女的愫願嚇呆之時,
但廣場仍充斥著追求真理的憧憬與勇氣,
人民的子弟兵決不會傷害這裡的國家未來主人翁,
噢,孩子, 您浴血廣場。

中國的六月三日,
八九年之春,
上層的指令向下傳遞,
士兵向群眾開槍,
人們倒臥在血泊中, 魂斷英年,
數以千計殉難的鮮血灑在廣場上,
使它永不能掩藏。
噢,孩子, 您浴血廣場。

劊子手經過四天多的狂怒,
人民面對他們的槍炮,
究竟多少千人被他們的泯滅人性所為宰殺?
懦夫為了掩飾他們的醜行而火速焚毀屍體,
但血液黏稠得沾滿他的手, 而他們的名字將留臭萬年。

眼淚飄逸在神州大地之上,
母親因她們孩子的殉難而傷心欲絕,
為了逃避仍被追殺的日子,
到處是恐懼, 到處是藏匿。
鐵腕及恐怖統治縱然換來平靜的今天,
但灑在廣場上的鮮血卻不能被洗掉,
噢,孩子, 您浴血廣場。
