Association of Tamils of Sri Lanka in the USA

The Struggle

by Senthan Sanchayan, September, 2008

Verse 1:

Suffering from war, the greatest sin,

Being deprived of food, shelter, rights and medicine,

The Tamils face this tragedy day after day,

And there’s nothing really more, to say

But the struggle, keeps, going on,

And I’m explaining, it, through this song,

About the suffering and injustice which the Tamils face,

Caused by the Sri Lankan Government,

The Biggest Disgrace

 

Chorus:

The Tamils face injustice day after day,

So raise your voice and have your say!

The Sri Lankan Government is evil and unfair too,

So do the right thing for me and you!

 

Verse 2:

The Families and Children in Vanni,

Suffering through everything including poverty,

All of this because of the war,

All they want is peace which they adore,

So for the Tamils, understand the struggle

As for the Government, try to toggle..

Them from the bad to the good and the can’t to the could

And we’ll all live in a great neighborhood.

 

Chorus:

The Tamils face injustice day after day,

So raise your voice and have your say!

The Sri Lankan Government is evil and unfair too,

So do the right thing for me and you!

 

Bridge:

Raise your voice for justice,

Raise your voice for peace,

Raise your voice for Freedom

Will you help the Tamils please?

Think about the struggle, Think about the lives.

Are you gonna sit back whilst so many people die?

 

Chorus:

The Tamils faced injustice day after day,

So raise your voice and have your say!

The Sri Lankan Government is evil and unfair too,

So do the right thing for me and you!
