A comfy sofa

Wide screen TV

You may well look

But do you see ?

 

A dark dusty road

A mother is crying

In her arms

A baby is dying

 

A comfy sofa

Wide screen TV

Its time for Eastenders

Sunday at three

 

The houses are gone

Just rubble is left

A shoe in the road

A family bereft

 

A comfy sofa

Wide screen TV

What will you watch?

As you, eat your tea

 

Mass graves are dug

The bodies piled high

No time to grieve

As more victims die

 

A comfy sofa

Wide screen TV

The film was crap

And they charged a fee

 

Look at your neighbour

Her down the street

A warm friendly smile

Each time you meet

 

Imagine a time

If you could

When you murder your neighbour

In sheer cold blood

 

Her religion is different

Her colour the same

To let her live

Considered a shame

 

It could happen here

Like it happens there

Only it’s not on TV...

Its you and me

 

Stop the slaughter

Before it can start

Lives are to live

Not tear apart
