  • Lyrics: My Neighborhood V: There's a city north of me... On the news and in the papers I read... Every week, a picture to see of a body lying under a sheet... People have bars on their doors and keep their shades down... Cuz there's not a safe place in that town C: What if it was my neighborhood? How would I feel about it then? What if the people getting killed were my family and friends? If it was in my neighborhood? V: I saw a movie that tore at my heart... About a village of orphans in a country at war... One quiet boy, missing both of his arms... Had to go out every day and farm... Down on his knees, a knife in his teeth.... Digging up land mines so his sister can eat C: Repeat B: Living my life takes all my energy... But that sounds like a sorry excuse... The suffering of this world weighs heavy on me... But I just don't know what to do C: What if it was my neighborhood? How would I feel about it then? What if the people getting killed were my family and friends? My daughter, my sister, my mom... My brother, my lover, my dad... What if it was my neighborhood?
