    If you knew that the earth was dying
    If they said this on the news
    If they would clarify the picture
    Instead of seeking to confuse
    If you could see the ice caps melting
    If you could watch the oceans rise
    If you could see the consequences
    Right before your eyes
    If you knew the kids were dying
    If you could look inside
    The river where their food comes from
    Filled with cyanide
    If you could hear the parents pleading
    If they were looking right at you
    If you could see the anguish in their hearts
    What if you knew

    If you knew the bombs were falling
    If they showed them hit the ground
    If you could see the bodies flying
    If you could hear the sound
    If you could see the rubble
    Where the hospital once stood
    If you saw the child's lifeless limbs
    Would you hold them if you could
    If you knew that they were lying
    Every time they spoke
    For every laser-guided pinprick
    There were lives lost in the smoke
    If instead of just the generals
    They had doctors, too
    To describe the carnage of the cluster bombs
    What if you knew

    If you knew what they were saying
    When they think you cannot hear
    If you understood what they do
    If for you it was so clear
    If you knew they shut down the factory
    In an economic ruse
    If you could kiss the cheek of the child
    In the sweatshop that made your shoes
    If every time we went to war
    To fight our evil foes
    They told you we were really fighting
    For the good of CEOs
    If you could feel the hunger of the many
    And see the riches of the few
    If they told it like it is
    What if you knew

    If you knew that you were living
    In a huge conspiracy
    Would you leave your suburbs
    Get out of your SUV
    Would you hit the streets
    And fight for all our lives
    Would you hold your ground
    When the stormtroopers arrive
    If you knew that the whole planet
    Depended on what you do now
    Would you take command
    With the speed our times allow
    If the pundits told the truth
    For just a week or two
    And real life was shown on TV
    What if you knew
  • David Rovics - Who Would Jesus Bomb?

    I've seen you in the markets
    I've seen you in the streets
    And at your political convention
    Talking of your crusade
    Talking of your nation
    And other things too terrible to mention
    And you proclaim your Christianity
    You proclaim your love of God
    You talk of apple pie and mom
    Well I've just got one question
    And I want an answer
    Tell me, who would Jesus bomb?

    Maybe Jesus would bomb the Syrians
    'Cause they're not Jews like him
    Maybe Jesus would bomb the Afghans
    On some kind of vengeful whim
    Maybe Jesus would drive an M1 tank
    And he would shoot Saddam
    Tell me, who would Jesus bomb?

    I've seen you on the TV
    And on the battleships
    I've seen you in the house upon the hill
    And I've heard you talking
    About making the world safer
    And about all the men you have to kill
    And you speak so glibly
    About your civilization
    And how you have the moral higher ground
    While halfway around the world
    Your explosives smash the buildings
    Ah, if you could only hear the sound

    But maybe Jesus would sell land mines
    And turn on his electric chair
    Maybe Jesus would show no compassion
    For his enemies in the lands way over there
    Maybe Jesus would have flown the planes
    That killed the kids in Viet Nam
    Tell me, who would Jesus bomb

    Yes I hear you shout with confidence
    As you praise the lord
    And you talk about this God you know so well
    And you talk of Armageddon
    And your final victory
    When all the evil forces go to hell
    Well you'd best hope you've chosen wisely
    On the right side of the lord
    And when you die your conscience it is clear
    You'd best hope that your atom bombs
    Are better than the sword
    At the time when your reckoning is here

    'Cause I don't think Jesus would send gunships into Bethlehem
    Or jets to raze the towns of Timorese
    I don't think Jesus would lend money to dictators
    Or drive those SUV's
    And I don't think Jesus would ever have dropped
    A single ounce of napalm
    So tell me, who would Jesus bomb?
