The Assassination V2

from by A.S. Swanski

lyrics

The world is changing and still nothing ever changes.
No one learns from history.
And no one cares what happens if there’s no tv camera showing it.

They don’t know about camps where torture is daily routine.
They don’t know about rooms where inmates are tested for suffocating gas.
They don’t know about guards that hang prisoners on bars just for fun.
They don’t know about meals of 50 grams of corn a day.
They don’t know about inmates forced to swallow mucus from guards.
Of babies buried alive or used for chemical experiments.
It still happens today.

Instead multinationals have launched joint ventures.
One day we will use smartphones produced by these inmates.
And we’ll be happy because they will be cheaper than ever.

And we’ll continue to refuse people who come from hell.
We will continue to ignore Camp 22.
It feels safe to be blind.

Maybe it's time we experience ourselves what happens to others.
Extinction.

It's time for the assassination of greed and self indulgence.
It's time to live with people that care.
It's time to share.
It's time to listen to sounds that matter.
