  • We are the people without land
    We are the people without tradition
    We are the people
    Who do not know how to die peacefully and at ease

    We are the thoughts of sorrows
    Endings of tomorrows
    We are the wisps of rulers
    And the jokers of kings

    We are the people without right
    We are the people who have known only lies and desperation
    We are the people without a country, a voice, or a mirror

    We are the crystal gaze
    Returned through the density and immensity of a berserk nation
    We are the victims of the untold manifesto of the lack of depth
    Of full and heavy emptiness

    We are the people without sorrow
    Who have moved beyond national pride and indifference
    To a parody of instinct
    We are the people who are desperate
    Beyond emotion because it defies thought

    We are the people
    Who conceive our destruction and carry it out lawfully
    We are the insects of someone else's thought
    A casualty of daytime, nighttime, space, and God
    Without race, nationality, or religion
    We are the people, and the people, the people Writer/s: James Newell Osterberg
