Peace for Okinawa (lyrics)

Peace for Okinawa

Music by Rob Kajiwara and Nelson Del Pino
Lyrics by Rob Kajiwara


We're here to build a new base for us to use
We're here to make a stand to remove you strangers from our land
We're here to keep you safe from China, North Korea too
We know that's just not true and who's going to protect us from you?

Peace for Okinawa
Please keep safe the aka angwa [children]
Peace for you and peace for all
Peace for Okinawa

We're here to help and we know what's best for you
This is genocide, two hundred thousand people died
We hear you but we know much better than you
What are they dying for, a pointless, hopeless, foreign war

Peace for Okinawa
Please keep safe the aka angwa [children]
Peace for you and peace for all
Peace for Okinawa

We're here to help and we know what's best for you
This is genocide, one-third of the population died
We hear you but we know much better than you
What are they dying for, please keep us out of your foreign wars

Peace …
