How Many More?
Same game, different name
Same story - nothin's changed
Before Columbus sailed the sea
Indians lived proud and free
Before the oppressor's slavery
black people lived proud and free

How many more? Tell me now, how many more?

Don't you sit on the sidelines
and say you're not involved
Don't try to convince yourself
that these problems don't affect you at all

Because now it's Lebanon, Azania, Grenada (*)
How many more? Tell me now, how many more?

Don't you sit on the sidelines
and watch your children go off to war
Don't stand back and wait
for this violence to come to your door

Because now it's Chile, Guatemala, El Salvador
How many more, Tell me now, how many more?

They look at the poor
and say we have no rights
They steal all the wealth
with their power and military might

Because now it's palestine, Guatemala, Grenada
How many more? Tell me now, how many more?

They say it's for democracy
that they must intervene
We know the real story
is their power and their greed

Because now it's Palestine, Azania, Grenada
How many more? Tell me now, how many more?

What are you waiting for - how many more?
Tell me now, how many more?
