SONG FOR BURMA (Myanmar)

This is about human rights,
This is about you and me,
So we can’t pretend this isn’t happening.
It’s about the entire world,
Not about one country alone,
They were calling out to us but now
Burma’s prayers have been silenced.
Myanmar is silent.

Where have they taken them?
What have they done?
How can it be the world says nothing can be done?
Soldiers shoot at monks,
What could be more wrong?
So how can it be right the world says…
Burma you’re on your own?
Myanmar you’re on your own…

How can this happen when they say the world is watching?
I believe that we can do much more.
This is about all of us,
Not about one country alone,
They were calling out to us but now
Burma’s prayers have been silenced.
Myanmar is silent.

Where have they taken them?
What have they done?
How can it be the world says nothing can be done?
Soldiers shoot at monks,
What could be more wrong?
So how can it be right the world says…
We’ll still sell them guns?!…
These soldiers shot at monks,
They must know it’s wrong.
So now we’ll help them bring the tyrants down.
Burma you’re not alone.

This is about human rights,
This is about you and me,
I believe that we can do much more.
