lyrics

My Heart Goes Out

From the reservation to the trenches,
And back on the street,
Thanks for your efforts in sustaining the dream.
A little girl in Bad River, Iowa,
You come back from the war,
She calls another man Pa.

My heart goes out

Misha with a flag, brave in Independance Square,
Took a generation to get what we have,
Not going to lose it here.
But I haven't seen my sister since 11 days ago,
Take a look at this picture,
If you see her let us know.

My heart goes out

Ahmed is 7, it's been 26 months
Since he and his brother got out of Homs.
They've got school, they've got errands,
The Champs Elysees in the sun,
Life behind the wire,
Life on the run.

My heart goes out

Your 9/11, Your Famine, Your Wounded Knee,
History, it's written by the winning PR machines.
Our Silence, our shame, our complicity.

My heart goes out
