I only ask God
may I not be indifferent to suffering,
may the skinny death not find me
empty and lonely without doing enough.

I only ask God
may I not be indifferent to injustice,
may they not slap my other cheek
after a claw has scratched my destiny.

I only ask God
may I not be indifferent to war.
It’s a big monster and tramples hard
on all the poor innocence of people!

I only ask God
may I not be indifferent to injustice.
If a traitor can do more than some few
may these few not forget him easily.

I only ask God
may I not be indifferent to future.
Evicted is he who has to go away
to live under a different culture.

I only ask God
may I not be indifferent to war.
It’s a big monster and tramples hard
on all the poor innocence of people!

It’s a big monster and tramples hard
on all the poor innocence of people!
