No-one saw it coming
Though they didn’t seem surprised
As their fellow men were slaughtered
They simply went about their lives

They felt they could do nothing
So they cowered all alone
Thinking the killers couldn’t reach them
In the safety of their homes

It wasn’t blood they wanted
As the people came to see
When they abdicated choices
The oppressors said “You’re free”

Soon they had adjusted
They continued with their days
It’s a shame we never realized
We lived our lives as slaves
