Yemeni lives matter

Yemeni lives matter
Iraqi lives too
Syrians are human beings
Just like me and you

Yemeni lives matter
We are the things we do
We make the bombs that kill babies
We avert our view

Pakistanis bleed
They eat and shit and screw
Like the people you know
They love their children too

We sell ourselves a story
When we do bad things
But our guilt cries out
Like a bell that always rings
