Inga fler folkmord i mitt namn
(Jan Hammarlund)


Questa canzone (il cui testo riprendiamo da questa pagina ha una riscrittura in lingua svedese di Jan Hammarlund, Inga fler folkmord i mitt namn.

Holly Near.
Holly Near.
Why do we call them the enemy this struggling nation
we've been bombing across the sea?
Why do we want these people to die?
Why do we say North and South?
Oh, why, oh why, oh why?

That's just a lie
one of the many and we've had plenty.
I don't want more of the same,
No more genocide in my name!

Oh, why are our history books
so/nil of lies
when no word is spoken of
why the Indian dies
or why the Chicanos love
the California land?
Do all books say it was discovered
by the white men?

That's just a lie
one of the many and we've had plenty.
I don't want more of the same,
no more genocide in my name!

Oh, why are the weapons of the war so young,
and why are there only older men
around when it's done?
Why are so many of our soldiers black or brown?
Do we say it's because they're good
at cutting yellow people down?

That's just a lie
one of the many and we've had plenty,
I don't want more of the same,
no more genocide in my name!
