lyrics

Let this be the last time…

I had two options. One was to remain silent and wait to be killed.
And the second was to speak up and then be killed.
I chose the second one. I decided to speak up.

Let this be the last time…

Why is it that countries which we call strong
are so powerful in creating wars but are so weak in bringing peace?
Why is it that giving guns is so easy but giving books is so hard?
Why is it that making tanks is so easy, but building schools is so hard?

I learned that you need to detach the fruits of lying
When you are resting in the shade of poplar trees
And then go shake those fears out of the blue blue sky
And tell the mountain's butterflies, soon they'll be free

I've learned to pay and to obey
Yeh daddy, that's what I learned in school today...

Let us become the first generation that decides to be the last
that sees empty classrooms, lost childhoods, and wasted potentials.
Let this be the last time that a girl or a boy spends their childhood in a factory.
Let this be the last time that a girl is forced into early child marriage.
Let this be the last time that a child loses life in war.
Let this be the last time that we see a child out of school.
Let this end with us.
Let's begin this ending together, Today, Right here, right now. Let's begin this ending now.

Let this be the last time…
