Bio

Lyrics for West Papua. I seen the leader been strangled and broken Cause he started people beleivin` and hopin` Took him away bearin' government guns Murdered from the back seat while he was sittin` in the front Hope and peace were all that they had Armed with truth they took on the mad He was a gentle, gentle man Fighting like Ghandi to free his land CH. Western people, Eastern people, United people Free the people of West Papua Freedom for the people of West Papua Theys Eluay was the noble breed Fightin` like Jesus for Love and peace He loved his people enough to give his life He knew the invaders were coming with the knife But he stood up and spoke the truth United Nations and Jakarta collude When they gave the land to another place A genocide was staring us in the face CH. Western people, Eastern people, United people Free the people of West Papua Freedom for the people of West Papua Bushmen voting at the end of a gun United Nations let the charade run Jakarta took control of another place And he spoke up and said these things to their face They got their thugs to take him for a ride To crush so much hope by taking one man`s life Their jails are full of men such as this So why does the world tolerate it? CH. Western people, Eastern people, United people Free the people of West Papua Freedom for the people of West Papua

Obviously, this song holds a really powerful story and it's beautifully brought together in this tune.
