Il testo รจ riprodotto da / Lyrics are reproduced from Thomas Easaw's Official Website

I am Thomas Easaw.
I come from the land of Mahatma Gandhi, where English is not my first language. And so my expressions may not be as powerful as my feelings are. This is only an attempt.
Friends and enemies, for President Bush, (unlike the sincere American), the dollar may be the most important thing.
But for those who believe that honour is greater than the dollar, they are left with no other option, but to fight and die - because they cannot win.
Let us not kill them and let them not kill us.
If it was the others, the day before; Afghanistan, yesterday and Iraq, today - it could be me, tomorrow and you, the day after. When such intimidation to our dignity is in the air, it is expected of all of us to stand up to defend our lives and our pride.
But for those of you, like me, who have been brought up in the way of love and non violence, who prefer neither to fight nor kill, at least join me in my song.
If you believe in what you think you believe in
Think for a little while
You're not the only one on planet earth
Don't think you're always right
Every little man has his own little right
To live in his own little land
Every little man who fights to defend that
Is admired, be he wrong or right
You simply cannot strip a whole nation
Stark naked of its pride
America, America
Don't start the Last World War
When it happens in Pakistan,
You simply seem to shut your eyes
When rights are violated in China,
You have them on your favoured list
Unless politically/commercially hit,
You seem to keep pretty still
Somehow you seem to nurture the notion that
The world spins on your goodwill.
