Lyrics

[Verse 1] There goes one baby's life It's such a small amount She's un-American I guess it doesn't count Six thousand children's lives Were simply thrown away Lost without medicine Inside of thirty days In the New York harbour Where the stock's withheld It was the price we paid For a safer world [Chorus] World is suffering World is suffering World is suffering World citizen [Verse 2] In Madhya Pradesh Where they're building dams They're displacing native peoples From their homes and lands So they hunger strike Cos they believe they count To lose a single life Is such a small amount In the name of progress And democracy The concepts represented In name only [Chorus] His world is suffering Her world is suffering Their world is suffering World citizen World citizen World citizen [Verse 3] And the buildings fall In a cloud of dust And we ask ourselves How could they hate us? Well, when we live in Ignorance and luxury While our super powers practice Puppet mastery We raise the men Who run the fascist states And we sell them arms So they maintain their place We turn our backs On the things they done Their human rights record And the guns they run [Chorus] His world is suffering Her world is suffering Their world is suffering World citizen My world is suffering Your world is suffering Our world is suffering World citizen [Verse 4] Who'll do away with flags? Who'll do us proud? Remove the money from their pockets Scream dissent out loud? Cos God ain't on our side The shoe won't fit And though they think the war is won That's not the last of it Disenfranchised people Need their voices heard And if no one stops to listen Lose their faith in words And violence rises When all hope is lost Who'll embrace the human spirit And absorb the cost? [Bridge] Not one life is taken In my name Not one life is taken In my name In my name Not one life is taken [Chorus] His world is suffering Her world is suffering Their world is suffering World citizen My world is suffering Your world is suffering Our world is suffering World citizen [Bridge] Not one life is taken In my name In my name Not one life is taken In my name In my name Not one life is taken In my name In my name Not one life is taken In my name In my name [Outro] World citizen World citizen World citizen World citizen His world is suffering Her world is suffering Their world is suffering Our world is suffering World citizen World citizen World citizen
