Lyrics by Bobby Dodd

Song about the U.N. responsibilities on Rwandan genocide
He was a lieutenant general,
A career military man,
Chosen for the impossible task,
Of leading a doomed peacekeeping plan…

A country left to kill its own, He wished someone had phoned…

Apathy at the UN, such self-serving men,
Artful diplomats who sold their alibis,
For immunity as the third world died,
Apathy at the UN, they should be wanted men,
Apathy at the UN, apathy at the UN...

Caught between denial and despair,
He watched as the West rolled the dice,
Leaving a path to war and slaughter open,
For the devil to take over paradise…

A country left to kill its own, he wished someone had phoned…

Apathy at the UN, such self-serving men,
Artful diplomats who sold their alibis,
For immunity as the Third World died,
Apathy at the UN, they should be wanted men,
Apathy at the UN - apathy at the UN...

Boiling in a pot of poisonous ethnic hate,
The world abandoned Rwandans to their fate,
The perfect recipe for a Genocidal bloodshed,
Where 100 days of indifference left over 800,000 dead…

A country left to kill its own, he wished someone had phoned…

Apathy at the UN, such self-serving men,
Artful diplomats who sold their alibis,
For immunity as the Third World died,
Apathy at the UN, they should be wanted men,
Apathy at the UN, apathy at the UN...

Fingers pointing at a shattered man,
'Til it was just a gun and him alone,
A forgotten casualty of the inferno,
Who lived to speak up for the unknown…

A country left to kill its own, he wished someone had phoned…

Apathy at the UN, such self-serving men,
Artful diplomats who sold their alibis,
For immunity as the Third World died,
Apathy at the UN, they should be wanted men,
Apathy at the UN, apathy at the UN...
Apathy at the UN, they should be wanted men,
Apathy at the UN, apathy at the UN...
