Are we all we are?
Are we as good as we can be?
Open up your eyes and
Look around at what you see
In Bangladesh a building fell
Killed people who made our clothes
Three hundred eighty died
Just so we could get those
Cheaply
Cheaply
We value their lives cheaply

It's only been five months since / The fire where a hundred died )

Our cheap clothes are worth more than their cheap lives!
If we want to be who we want to be, we must strive
To change that, to buy only clothes made in USA
Or places with better safety and pay!
Not Bangladesh or Thailand or China
Or places life's cheaper than in North Carolina
This is our fault! We killed those five hundred!
Our greed and our stinginess! I won't say it blunted!

Are we all we are?
Are we all we are?
