(track by Michael Jackson from album "Michael Jackson: The Ultimate Collection", released on November 17, 2004)

 

Love was taken from a young life,
And no one told her why.
Her direction has a dim light
From one more violent crime.

She innocently questioned why,
Why her father had to die,
She asked the men in blue,
How is it that you get to choose
Who will live and who will die?
Did God say that you could decide?
You saw he didn't run
And that my daddy had no gun?

In the middle of the village,
Way in a distant land
Lies a poor boy with his broken toy,
Too young to understand.

He's awaken, ground is shakin’,
His father grabs his hand.
Screaming, crying, his wife's dying,
Now he's left to explain.

He innocently questioned why
Why his mother had to die,
What did these soldiers come here for?
If they're for peace, why is there war ?

Did God say that they could decide
Who will live and who will die
All my mama ever did
Was try to take care of her kids.

We're innocently standing by,
Watching people lose their lives.
It seems as if we have no voice,
It's time for us to make a choice.

Only God could decide
Who will live and who will die.
There's nothing that can't be done,
If we raise our voice as one.

[Chorus]

They've gotta hear it from me!
They've gotta hear it from you!
They've gotta hear it from us!
We can't take it,
We've already had enough!

They've gotta hear it from me!
They've gotta hear it from you!
They've gotta hear it from us!
We can't take it,
We've already had enough!

They've gotta hear it from me!
They've gotta hear it from you!
They've gotta hear it from you baby!
We can't take it,
We've already had enough!

Deep in my soul baby,
Deep in your soul and let God decide,
Deep in my soul,
It's up to me and I'm still alive
They've gotta hear it from us!
We can't take it,
We've already had enough!

It's going down, baby!
Just let God decide,

It's going on, baby,
Just let God decide!

Deep in my soul baby

We've already had enough.

Why did you do it?..
Oh, no, oh, no..
