Hello, Remember Us

This song is by Leslie Fish and appears on the album Not Canned Or Frozen (1996).

Hello! Remember us?
The ones you left behind,
When half the Earth was burning
And all the sky was blind?
You lords of wealth and power
Who made the missiles fly,
Remember how you hid yourselves
And left us here to die?

Hello! Hello! Hello!

Hello! Remember us?
No doubt you shed a tear,
Before you took yourselves below
And left us standing here.
Now aren't you pleased to see us,
So many still alive --
Or did you hope to find a world
Where only you survived?

Hello! Remember us?
We sure remember you!
Remember how our world was
And what you brought it to?
And when the dead were buried
The dust all cleared away,
We set ourselves about your door
And waited for this day.

Hello! Remember us?
It seems we're hard to kill:
Though more than half were slaughtered then,
Enough are living still.
And if now we don't obey you,
Why should you find it strange?
We lived this long without you
And we see no need to change.

Hello! Remember us?
We swear that this is true:
Whatever world remains to us,
It will not go to you.
We know what dreams you harbored:
Come kiss them all goodbye;
Come up and claim your kingdom now,
Come out, stand up, and die.

Hello! Hello! Hello!
