Just when we got used to the beatings
Everything became much worse
Lost our jobs and self respect
And all our art was suppressed

And we all cried for mercy
As the blows came raining down
And we all cried for mercy
Though we knew there would be none


They eroded our identities
Changed our names and where we could go
Made to live in special ghettos
They lined us up and stripped our clothes

And we all cried for mercy
As the blows came raining down
And we all cried for mercy
Though we knew there would be none


Such unparalleled hatred
We were tortured and castrated
All our people turned to slaves
The lucky ones went to the mass graves

And now you think that we’re subservient
As you watch from your comfort zone
With all your systematic apathy
You might as well have never existed
You contributed nothing
You contributed nothing
You contributed nothing
You contributed nothing
