Bikindi

Lorne Clarke & Tom Flannery
Language: English



What if I used this song to hate
would you still dance around the room?
sweeping away the dirt as though
your feet were like a broom
what if I used this song as a call to arms
on the airwaves here and now
would you pick up the knife or the gun
if I told you how?

What if I used this song to hide
behind the words I say
if I said "after all, it's just a song"
would you look the other way?
what if I used this song to excuse
the things that I've been told
from the day that I was born
until the day that I grew old

Bikindi is my name
Bikindi is my name
love will prevail over hatred
only the killing will remain

What if I used this song to burn
your house down to the ground
and where your children once looked to the sky
they now stare at the ground
what if I used this song to kill
would you pay for my third car?
maybe you just feel like dancing
or would just love to be a star

Bikindi is my name
Bikindi is my name
love will prevail over hatred
only the killing will remain
