Veins pumping with evil,
Drugs administered against their will.
Operation "no living thing".
Killing, burning, shooting evrything.
"God won't blame me for that",
Future prosperity in their hands.
Machetes hack enemy's extremities,
Handicapped for life, lucky to be alive.

Young child sniper,
Captured and treated accordingly.
Everyone potential enemy,
Rebel forces your only family.
Arm a prepubescent,
And force him to shoot his parents.
Make his friends human shields,
Or burn them if they refuse to yield.

A country at war over diamonds,
The greatest symbol of love.
Western vanity funds their butchery,
As bodies pile up before the mortuary.
The west looks the other way,
While purchasing death every day.
"Africa, the responsibilty of everyone.
We must accept it's problems and resolve them"

Empty rhetoric once again,
Soothing words but the debt remains.
