    Mexican Vacation (Kids in the Candlelight)

    [Verse 1]
    I carried you in my arms
    Through the hotel to our room
    The night was filled with music
    Those old historic tunes
    Songs of revolution
    Filled our hearts and fed our souls
    As the fireworks exploded
    Like those cannons long ago

    [Chorus]
    See the kids in the candlelight
    Spirits on the mend
    Every golden child tonight
    Just changes on the wind
    See the kids in the candlelight
    See them shining bright
    Innocence beyond the fight
    See the kids in the candlelight

    [Verse 2]
    Five hundred wooden saints below
    The color's cracked and dry
    You said their stories should be told
    Did they suffer when they died?
    Give us your tradition
    Give us hope and send us home
    We'll be the cracked bells tolling
    The voice of dust and bones

    [Chorus]

    [Verse 3]
    The pillow that you dream on
    Lies rolled up on the floor
    You tossed it at the TV screen
    At the drug lord and his war
    Thinking of the courtyard
    Forced a tear from your eye
    The white shirts in the moonlight
    The warm forgiving smiles

    [Chorus]

    [Outro]
    Yeah, yeah, yeah [x2]
