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.
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
