Raging Water

Oh raging water
Tell me, why so angry?

Three small children in Thailand
sleep alone on the street
while happy men in America
count money in their sleep

Oh raging water
Tell me, why so angry?
This injustice between lands
is it all you see?

Raging Water

Oh raging water
Tell me, why so angry?

Three small children in Thailand
sleep alone on the street
while happy men in America
count money in their sleep

Oh raging water
Tell me, why so angry?
This injustice between lands
is it all you see?
