"We Tibetans are looking for a legitimate and meaningful autonomy, an arrangement that would enable Tibetans to live within the framework of the People’s Republic of China."

DO YOU HEAR WHAT I HEAR?

December 3, 2009

Do you hear what I hear?
Do you hear what I hear?
China has built a high speed railway to Tibet
To steal the rich natural resources of Tibet
She has sentenced thousands of Tibetans to death
For consciously swearing at her under their breath

Do you see what I see?
Do you see what I see?
China is populating Tibet with Han people
To overwhelm the Tibetans and make them feeble
She is clamping down on voices of freedom
And promoting and expanding her kingdom

Do you smell what I smell?
Do you smell what I smell?
I smell a rat doing its best
To poison the minds of the West
I smell a rat stealing the health
Of the West by stealing their wealth

Do you feel what I feel?
Do you feel what I feel?
I feel the fear of my people under Chinese rule
And hope and pray some nations would an uprising fuel
I feel the pain my people are suffering
And dread the ache they are enduring

Do you taste what I taste?
Do you taste what I taste?
I taste my people's blood
With which the Chinese flood
The hills and valleys of Tibet
And for which they have no regret

Listen to what I say
Listen to what I say
Please listen not to what China says
She's as boastful as Hugo Chavez
She's a conniving, pathological liar
Who will rob your land and set your house on fire
