Tomorrow we’ll be gone – JeeWee Donkers & Peter Holen

What did you feel, my father
When they knocked upon your door
When they tied your hands together
And worked you to the floor

It’s been almost a year now
And we haven’t heard a word
We don’t know where they took you
If you’re dead or if you’re hurt

Did you see them from a distance
Did you hear them shout out loud
They deny us our existence
They’re about to bring us down

What did you feel, my brother
When they pulled you off your bed
Did you know your end was coming
With the gun against your head

I could see them in the distance
I could hear them shout out loud
They deny us our existence
They’re about to bring us down

Gone, we’ll be gone
One day we’ll be gone
If we let them carry on

Come with me my sister
Let me take you by the hand
I will never let them hurt you
In a stranger, safer land

You can see them in the distance
We still hear them shout out loud
They deny us our existence
But they will never bring us down

Gone, we’ll be gone
Tomorrow we’ll be gone
Gone, we’ll be gone.
Tomorrow we’ll be gone
