Story behind the song
After 9/11 there was alot of outrage over the loss of life. In the early hours of Dec. 3, 1984, gas leaked from a plant in Bhopal, India, owned and operated by Union Carbide. The state government reported that approximately 3,800 persons died, 40 persons experienced permanent total disability, and 2,680 persons experienced permanent partial disability. There were no wars initiated after this incident, in fact few Americans knew or cared. Ethiopian Prime Minister Meles Zenawi has warned that his country faces a famine worse than that of 1984 which killed nearly one million people and sparked a big international relief effort. Americans are so fortunate and could show much more compassion for other countries pain. Our suffering just doesn't compare to what the rest of the world experiences.
Lyrics
Standing at ground zero is more than one can bear You can feel it in your body, you can taste it in the air But this our greatest loss can't even be compared To the lives lost each and everyday To nothing but apathy We cringe at the thought of just one lost innocent These our precious moms and dads, sons and daughters of Americans decent But what of all the bloodshed for oil and power and greed What of all the lives laid down by nothing but apathy. All over the world All over the world Standing at ground zero with eyes closed it's hard to take a peek It's hurts to hear forgiving words about turning the other cheek Vengence is may sayeth man, and we will see justice done. We will make the killers pay and keep evil on the run Somewhere in a desert a child lies dying in her mothers embrace Maybe from the cold or from a gunshot wound, Maybe with starvation on her face We who fight for our addictions, we who would gladly die for our ease We live without compassion and we spread just like a disease All over the world. When will we learn that to harm one kills us all When will we realize the self righteous always fall When will we take a chance. Listen to the small voice inside When will we understand we're all fathers and mothers and sisters and brothers All over the world.
