I haven't enough to drink,
while you're swimmimg in your pools.
you tortured me for 22 days,
i had nothing to give them but my name..

Life stops at five,
'cause we can't go outisde
beneath the tables we all hide,
will we make it out alive?

They closed me school today
so i picked up a book instead..
Me friend he picked up a loaded rock
they killed him dead with just one shot...

Such a look of surprise,
from your lifeless eyes,
there's no human rights
outside the cameras golden light...

My tears are weeping into your wounds
another drop in the ocean of the ruined
shrapnel makes for a sickening necklace
shining in the evening light
as both of ye fade...

Life stops at five,
'cause we can't go outisde
i hope the morning arrives,
i hope the morning arrives...

    General CommentFor me, is a song of protest. Great metaphor: "I haven't enough to drink, while your swimming in your pools". I'm from Colombia, and the situation described for this song is the generality in my country: unjustice, unequality, the rich up the poor down.
