All We Ask Of You

All we ask of you
is that you kill not our dreams
so that when we eat
the mouldy bread of affliction today
we can imagine we're having
the honey crusted crumbs of tomorrow

All we ask of you
is our right to dignity
We can only bite our nails and stare
at your fine velvet capes
will you also have
our lice ridden rags?

All we ask of you
Is that you do not sacrifice our future
on the alter of ambition
Do not put out our lights
So all our days of darkness
will be worth it in the end

All we ask of you
is our lives
in exchange for yours
That's all we're asking
is it too much to ask?
