lyrics

DEEPEST RED
If they’re taking up to violence, it will be hard to learn our best. Are we better off in silence? Is it easier to take our rest? If you make it there, try real hard, find a job and tell everyone you meet, tell them about us, and send us a card, mail us some cash so we can eat. Now they cut down nearly every tree and the forests they are barren and dead. And they drilled out all the oil. Now our home is in the deepest red. Now if you make it there, tell everyone you know, about our land, and how nothing here can grow. A child on the corner well he holds a bomb on a crowded street and he’s about to blow. Now they’re taking up to violence, it will be hard to learn our best. Are we better off in silence? Is it easier to get our rest? If you make it west to America, tell all the people in DC about the killings and about a new threat, tell them all what Africa could be.
