"Henry? You ok?"

Henry was just woken up because of a nightmare and saw Edward looking over him in worry. Henry looked down, "Yeah… Sort of, just got a nightmare."

Edward frowned, "What was it?"

Henry gulped, "I was taking that passage train, and then I went into the tunnel and expecting the light at the end, you know? But there was no light at the end and I was beginning to get really scared and speed up trying to get out but…"

"Henry calm down. You're not in that tunnel anymore." Edward knew it must've been lonely for being shut up in there for nearly a long time.

Henry took a breath and started to cry, "I'm sorry Edward… I didn't mean to wake you up and all…" Edward smiled and started to sing:

Edward: Deep inside the border

Children are crying

Fighting for food

Holding their heads

Breaking their bread with a stone

Edward: All along the roadside

People are standing

Watching the sun

Shielding their eyes

Brushing the flies from their face

Henry (Joins in): Tell me, what can you say?

Tell me, who do you blame?

Like a mirror you see yourself

These people each have a name

Henry: All around the township

Young men are dying

Of hunger and thirst

The well has run dry

The tears from her eye feeds her son

Edward: Now tell me, what can you say?

Tell me, who do you blame?

Like a mirror you see yourself

These people each have a name

Henry: You can say you're pulling back

We see the pictures everywhere

But what we don't see is

What's going on behind the closed doors

You don't seem to care

Edward: Do you expect me to believe you?

How can you really think?

But you can take your horse down to the water

Hold a gun at his head

And make him drink

Edward and Henry: No matter what you say

(No matter what you say)

It never gets any better

No matter what you do

(No matter what you do)

We never see any change

Henry: People living without rights

Without their dignity

But how loud does one man have to shout

To earn his right to be free?

Edward: You can keep your toy soldiers

To segregate the black and white

But when the dust settles

And the blood stops running

How do you sleep at night?

Edward and Henry: No matter what you say

(No matter what you say)

It never gets any better

No matter what you do

(No matter what you do)

We never see any change

No matter what you say

(No matter what you say)

It never gets any better

No matter what you do

(No matter what you do)

We never see any change

Edward and Henry: What makes you so high and mighty?

What makes you so qualified?

You can sit there and say

How many have their freedom?

But how many more died?

Henry: You decide to sit in judgement

Trying to play God yourself

Ooh but someday soon the buck is gonna stop

Stop with you and no one else

Edward and Henry: No matter what you say

(No matter what you say)

It never gets any better

No matter what you do

(No matter what you do)

We never see any change

No matter what you say

(No matter what you say)

It never gets any better

No matter what you do

(No matter what you do)

We never see any change

As soon they stopped singing Henry yawned, "Thanks for cheering me up Edward." The older blue engine smiled, "Of course. Good night Henry."

"Night Eddie." And with that Henry slept with a smile on his face.
