What did I ever do to you?

Did I ever bring danger to your home,

What injustices old or new?

 

What did I ever do or say-

That could possibly justify the things

You are doing to me this day?

 

Right now they’re only whispers of wonder

But tomorrow they’ll rage like the thunder.

 

What did we ever do to you-

Are we children of a lesser god

Not as shiny and not as new?

 

What did we ever do or say

That could possibly justify the things

You are doing to us this day?

 

And yet through all this madness you wonder

Why our outrage is rising like thunder…

 

When all we want is just to live

In the peace we’ve always needed

And not stare in the face of death

As the conquered and defeated

 

As children of a lesser god

We are sacrificed and slaughtered

And not allowed to shed a tear

As we bury sons and daughters…

 

What is it we have to do-

To make a blind world understand

That we bleed and daydream too?

 

What is it we have to say-

To make these madmen pack their things

And abandon our homes today?

 

Our children cry loud as the thunder

As day by day their lives are torn asunder…

 

When all we want is just to live

In the peace we’ve always needed…

And not stare in the face of death

As the conquered and defeated…

 

As children of a lesser god

We are sacrificed and slaughtered

And not allowed to grieve and weep

As we bury sons and daughters

 

What is it that must be said-

To make these madmen understand

All the evil that’s in their heads?

 

What is it that must be done-

To make them heed his final words

As He entered Jerusalem?

 

And still through the desert we wander

We beg and we plead and we ponder

We hope and we cry and we wonder

Will we ever live days free of thunder?

 

All we want is just to live

In the peace we’ve always needed…

And not stare in the face of death

As the conquered and defeated

 

As children of a lesser god

We are sacrificed and slaughtered

And not allowed to raise a fist

To defend our sons and daughters.

 

All we want is just to live…

All we want is just to live…

We children of a lesser god…
