Anne Clark — Nida lyrics

The world keeps watch where it's jewels are sleeping -
Under desert sands , it's black heart's beating
The pulsing liquid earth - ours for the taking

But beyond the marked borders , beyond strategic lines
The dust's turning red , the wind's carrying cries
And all around the world the world closed it's eyes
A people without land fights for existence
As opposing winds disperse all calls for assistance
Will their annihilation be the price of our silence ?
The only sounds heard are oil-hungry nations'
Blood-thirsty threats of immediate action
Should the hold on resources ever be threatened

Their can be no excuses , no justification
No heads turned away from their situation
The price of our silence will be their annihilation !
Beyond the marked borders , beyond strategic lines
The dust's turning red , the wind's carrying cries
And all around the world the world closes it's eyes
