Lyrics

In Another Land
By Antara Blasius and Delilah Poupore © 2004

Verse 1
Turned off the computer, couldn?t take it anymore
Couldn?t stand to read the emails about another US war
In another land

Who do we think we are? We have the right
To bring the world to justice, while we win by might?
In another land

Chorus 1
Why don?t we walk a mile?in our own shoes?
Why don?t we look in our own backyard before we shoot
At another land
Those people we gotta save
In another land
Danger?s imminent and grave
In another land.

Verse 2
Take a loyal soldier, put him in a ditch
Play him on the evening news, it?s a grand bait and switch
No one knows what happened when Enron robbed the bank
Who cares if we?ve got jobs, when we?ve got tanks
In another Land

Chorus 2

Bridge
In this land of dreams, we cut money for our schools
Pollution fills our streams ?cause corporations set the rules
And when our prisons all fill up, we just build some more
We could solve these problems?but no, let?s go to war!

Chorus 3
Why don?t we walk a mile?in our own shoes?
Why don?t we look in our own backyard before we shoot
At another land. Those people we gotta save.
In another land-- Danger?s imminent and grave
In another land-- Those people we gotta save
In another land-- Danger?s imminent and grave?
In another land.
Kindness
