Lyrics

Raging Forest

Written By: Dominik Baer

(I wrote this song in response to a visit with Internally Displaced People (IDPs) of the Karen Tribal group. They have been on the run fleeing in their own country for almost 50 years, fleeing from the Burmese Military. Their tragic circumstances persists today.)

Raging Forest

We fled through a raging forest
And we felt death was close behind us
So we sped through the night in quiet
But the moon would not keep our secret

Now here they come
They carry their guns and their knives
They run at us wildly and they make our knees weak
And our wives and our children, they falter

We took our chances and to the world we appealed
But the wind took our voices
And back at us it threw them

How many times can you scream
when nobody listens?
How long before your throat is dry
when nobody listens?

And the gunfire begins
And the gunfire rings
and it dies down

Let the trees rejoice and sing with me a song
A song of hope and peace as war keeps raging on
Let the woods ring out with blessings from the birds
For help is on the way your voices have been heard

You called, so here's my answer
You raised your voices
and now I'll raise my hand
'Cause this is not what I want
This is not what I want

Raging Forest
