This song was written in 2013, 2 years after the peaceful protests began in Syria. Since then, more years have passed and the number of casualties has dramatically risen. Keep that in mind when viewing this video (especially when you hear the first line of the lyric of this song).

IMPORTANT NOTE: Michael Heart supports a secular and free Syria. The message of this song is about one thing only. The Syrian civilian population being abandoned by the rest of the world, when they dared to ask for their freedom. If after viewing this video, you think that Michael is making a statement about religion, well then, you clearly and completely misunderstood the meaning of this song. As with all of Michael's songs (including his other songs about human rights), this one has absolutely nothing to do with religion. Michael does not support extremism of any kind. Please keep that in mind before you post a comment on this video. Thanks.

What About Us (Song For Syria)
(Michael Heart, ©2013)

Two years and counting, a hundred thousand dead
And still you wait
Innocent civilians have bled the ground red
And still you wait
The world is busy living an ordinary life
With school and work and family
And sleeping safe at night

But what about us
Don't we count at all
Should we just keep on dying
While you're waiting to solve
The political mess
All you do is stall
Can't you see the bloody writing
All over the wall
What about us

Chemical rockets raining from the sky
And still you wait
Millions of refugees running for their lives
And still you wait
This page we write in history
Of the human race
Inked in blood for all to see
We never can erase


Can't you hear us calling
Can't you feel our pain
What'll it take to free us from these chains
