In a hopeful town
lies a secret
They're full of peace
but pain will come

In the morning of
the raising sun
They assemble in
the center of town

For the dark deed
that is to come
will happen so quick
from the box
will bring the death of one

The men and women
great each other
as it they were fellow men
but the pain
will surly come

The children fun
collecting stones
for the deed
that is to come

Then comes the town
with the boz
full of paper
one family will win
and pay the price

The head of town
calls names
of the men
with a sober sound

In the morning
of that summer day
a family won regretably

each member
of that family
had to redraw
remember thee
the wife won regretfuly

the town ran
to the stones they tred
as she tried
to hold them back

Then the town
let them go
they flew so swiftley
and hit her down

In theis town
a secret stays
on this summer day

For that act
will remain
the same
in this town
that dark act
in a happy little town
