Yangon Sule Pagoda hasn't seen since '88
Burma's bloody crackdown killing many in the hate
Peaceful Buddhist monks, soldiers in the hunt
Left the bodies in the jungle to be eaten by the lake

Oil and Opium
The poor have been beaten upside down

Bullets are applied to the people who arise
Burning stinging tear gas hits you right between the eyes
Soldiers locked and loaded this country's been exploited
Raid the monasteries and silence the debate

Oil and Opium
The poor have been beaten upside down
