Timor, Timor
Yale, Yale, East Timor, Timor
Timor, Timor
Timor, Timor

Going on and on and on and on
This is going on and on and on and on now
Said it once and say it twice, I want to save your time
Safety, safety

It's alright, it's alright
'Cause the system never fails
The good guys are in power and the bad guys are in jail

It's alright, it's alright
Just as long as we can vote
We live in democracy and that's what we promote

Isn't it, sn't it? (ooh-ooh)
Isn't it, isn't it? (ooh-ooh)

It's alright, it's alright
At least there's half the truth
Hearing what we want's the secret of eternal youth

It's alright, it's alright
The planet's split in three
'Cause I'll keep on selling records and you've got your MTV

If we forget about 'em
Don't worry
If they forget about us
Then hurry
How about the people who don't matter anymore?

East Timor, Timor, Timor
Ooh
Ah, ah, ah, ah
Ah, ah, ah, ah

It's alright, it's alright
We'll show all on TV
So we won't really know it just by watching **BC

It's alright, it's alright
For a flag we die or kill
As long as we don't know it, do it just to pay the bills

If we forget about 'em
Don't worry
If they forget about us
Then hurry
How about the people who don't matter anymore?

If we forget about 'em
Don't worry
If they forget about us
Then hurry
How about the people who don't matter anymore?

East Timor, Timor, Timor

Let's keep telling the world it's sunny
They risk their hides to make the money
Now don't you find that funny?

If we forget about 'em
If they forget about us
Then hurry
(How about those people who don't matter anymore?)

If we forget about 'em
Don't worry
If they forget about us
Then hurry
(How about those people who don't matter anymore?)

East Timor, Timor, Timor

East Timor, Timor, Timor

East Timor
