Where are the heroes that are rising from the earth?
Where are the youth who have ignored the truth?
The heroes and youth are no longer brave,
The truth is dead and buried in graves.
And ghosts of our ancestors are crying, crying, crying.
The truth is no longer remembered or respected.
And each of us prepares for civil war,
No longer do we listen like we did before.
We hear our own words and cut other words short.
And ghosts of our fathers come marching, marching, marching.
There are rumors of blood being shed in the hills,
There are dreams of street battles just for the thrills.
There are fingers poised to blast away,
Neighbors and relatives killed if they get in the way.
And the hearts of our fathers are bleeding, bleeding, bleeding.
We could be the heroes that are rising from the earth,
We could be the ones who respect the truth.
It will be our blood that will stain the soil,
Until our hatred ceases to boil.
And our ghosts are satisfied with
Crying, crying, crying
bleeding, bleeding, bleeding
marching, marching, marching.
Dying. dying, dying.
The ghosts will be satisfied when all is quiet and still.
