lyrics

To prevail, to maintain domination
There must be conflict, extant final solution

Their fear, you crave it
It gives you a reason to live

The stranglehold of them hating us hating them
Bringing death, pushing human beings through a grinder

Defiance came with the drought
Like a stream, they were swallowed by the desert
On bleeding knees, they begged we take their children
And in our arrogance we asked if they’d been Christened

Through suffering, a consciousness awakens
The repercussion, a terminal culmination

Will we disgrace it?
Or give it a reason to live?

The paradox of them hating us hating them
Bringing death, drowning out compassion with our anger

We speak of values on which homelands are founded
Or holy scriptures preaching ethics from prophets
But when the time comes, we only have one question:
If we save you, what do we get out of it?

Our democracy comes with conditions
That you buy and kill people with our weapons
