I have known such depths of despair
From persecution and the further persecution
That says this is not persecution
We are not your enemy
We are your friend.
Then put down your gun, for God’s sake!
We are doing this for your good.
It is necessary,
It’s what is needed.
We know what is better.
We’re trying to cause the least pain.
You can’t have it your way.
Our way is best way.
It’ s always been.
You can’t change things.
If you would just understand,
You can have the good life too.
Don’t think about the others,
Others aren’t important
We are not the enemy
We are your friends.
Then put down the gun, for God’s sake!
