Don'T Tell Me We'Re Free
Don't judge us by the Smiling faces
And conclude we are happy.
Don't use as examples just a few cases
And say it's reality.
For Smiling faces do not mean the same as happy people,
Neither does smooth talk translate to goodwill.
Don't see the big cars we drive
And conclude we are rich.
Don't look at the clothes we have
And call us the real deal.
For big cars do not mean the same as rich men,
Neither does big clothes translate to big men.
Don't look at us 'going places'
And conclude we can soar.
Don't look at us like cheetahs running in ...
How Did We Get Here?
We are getting to that horrible place.
Yes, that place where no country wishes to be.
'Tis a place where no nation wants to be named with.
A place of violence and fear.
We have arrived at that destination.
Yes, that destination where no country ever prays to get.
'Tis a venue where no nation wishes to arrive at.
A place of disaster and death.
