We talk about the war in Syria

We talk about the war in Syria,
Getting everyone to live in fear.
But what they don’t say is we’re selling weapons to the enemy,
Just for our governments to make a few more pennies.

Millions have to flee.
And no matter how much we plea
Too many refugees are still dying at sea.
The pain is strong
The west is wrong!
How can we blame them for what is going on.

We’re at fault.
It’s time we make a cult.
And shout Fuck the west and all the rest.
Who say what we’re doing is for the best.
This whole situation is a mess.
We’re all human no one is worth any less.
So let’s stand together and take the blame
And hope to save the remaining families who in the paper are given no name.
