What about "Secrets" by Anastasia? It even has the lines: "Oh babies crying/ People are dying." The band Tears for Fears also has a song titled "Secrets."

Some songs with the theme of being careful of what you wish for are "Dark Signs" by Prong (never listeneded to it, but found it in a search), "Black Jack" by Everclear, and "Careful What You Wish For" by Meredith Brooks.
