Dont forget those less fortunate

It's Christmastime
There's no need to feel afraid
At Christmas time, we call all our friends and we celebrate
And in our ivory towers we can pretend the world's at peace
We can ignore the troubles of the world at christmas time

But say a prayer
Pray for the other ones
At Christmastime it's hard, but when you're having fun
There's a world outside your window
And it's the world of genocide
Where the only water flowing is their warm blood as they die
And the only bells they ring there are those of the janjaweed
Well tonight thank God the world ignores them instead of you

And we will keep ignoring black Sudanese this Christmastime
The greatest gift they're dreaming of is life
(Oooh) Where no peace keeper ever goes
No UN soldier Knows
Do they know it's Sudans "soverign right" at all?

(Here's to you) raise middle finger for everyone
(Here from them) dieing from the machine guns
Do they know it's Genocide at all?
