Is it you or is it me? Carrying a twisted gun in one hand and a smile across the face Where were you when hope took a trip? Come now carrying a placard
The huts have dried up The goats cannot be milked Silence manufactured a coup d'etat Screams across the night dominate the horizon
Who is next? Is it you or is it me? Who will rescue? Is it you or is it me?
Across the skies Over the plains A thunderous roar of Amazon women
Who can stand? With them, Justice carries her scale and weigh War chants filled the air Is there need for war?
Reconciliation! Restoration Redemption Not resistance
Our bodies must be liberated Our thoughts given expression Our education given priority Our environment sustainable
Whose role? Is it me or is it you?
