And You Just Say I Dont Care

And  You Just Say I Don’t Care

Look at the TV or on the street
See the children starving
Hoping for a scrap of food
So they can survive
And you just say I don’t care
The people killed for no reason
Left dying on the street
Killed by a bullet from someone they never met
So many die every day
And you just say I don’t care
Watch the black child
Beaten and harassed for the color of his skin
Hated for something he cannot help
He just wants to grow up just like everyone else
And you just say I don’t care
Listen to the politician
Lying to himself and to you
Pretending everything is okay
While the country destroys itself
And you just say I don’t care
Hear the bomb in a downtown shop
The explosion kills a hundred people
Men, women and children
Killed for no good reason
And you just say I don’t care
However, maybe there will be a time
When you are starving
When you are frightened
When you are the different one
Facing hatred for who you are
But, don’t you dare ask for help
Don’t you dare
Because all you will hear from every voice
A familiar phrase
They all will say I don’t care
And they won’t
