lyrics

We Want Justice

And what if I refuse to be
Your lifelong hated enemy?
Our Father’s house has many rooms
Enough for me enough for you

My father died when I was six
He built our house with home made bricks
They tore it down he dared to fight
Put in the ground for his birthright

Tick tock tick tock when will it will stop
No answer can turn back the clock
Our blood runs deep into this clay
Our children weep and we say

Oh we want Justice

The nations wring their hands and pray
Then give a billion dollars aid
They peddle peace they claim to care
When our land’s snatched its laissez-faire

I still retain my father’s key
Preserve his dreams of being free
And what if I refuse to be
Your lifelong hated enemy?

Tick tock tick tock when will it will stop
The body count the mental rot
Our blood runs deep into this clay
Our children weep and we say

Oh we want Justice
Sing it loud, sing it free
God loves us all, God loves us all equally
