Aus-rotten – Too Little, Too Late lyrics

Many fled to Zaire for the fear of being killed in the vicious,
Bloody civil war that took half a million lives
Over two milion refugees pile into neighboring countries towns
Hoping to escape their deaths but this is what they found
Bodies stacked in massive piles and mass graves overflowing
As the cholera camps are waiting for the aid to finally come
The Rwandan refugees are dying by the thousands every day
While clean water needed to preserve life is supposedly on it's way
Too little, too late
We are all responsible for the third world we create
Now we try to help these people but we're too fucking late
Too little, too late
We control the third world's fate
Our high standard of living contributes to their deaths
And the truth behind the bloodshed is what our government protects
But the fault is also ours because we're killing with our greed
For our material possessions we confuse our wants with need
The companies and the media promote these capitalist views,
Praising the American way of life, never asking at whose expense
So if you think we're helping then you're really fucking blind
Because we're after special interests and the rest we leave behind
Too little, too late
We are all responsible for the third world we create
Now we try to help these people but we're too fucking late
Too little, too late
We control the third world's fate
Haitian and Cuban refugees try to find a better life only to be denied
Entry to the United States because our government doesn't deem it necessary
To help our fellow man, so if they can't make us money
They don't want them in our land
Panama and Nicaragua were some to receive our "aid",
So what kind of difference did we make beside the loss of lives?
And how is life in bosnia? Did the problems disapear?
And what about Rwanda is their water now crystal clear?
Too little, too late
We are all responsible for the third world we create
Now we try to help these people but we're too fucking late
Too little, too late
We control the third world's fate
