WE WILL NOT GO DOWN - song for Gaza


WE WILL NOT GO DOWN

a song for Gaza




Written and Performed by















This is an awesome song. Art can and does inspire people. Art can and does awaken our human conscience ...



... as Boudica would say ... (http://www.lit.org/view/44402)

"Poets come riding on the fearless writer horse" ... (or heart for that matter)


I denounce Hamas for killing Israeli civilians and for taking Gazans as hostages for months to achieve some political gains which are related to Hamas alone and not to the Palestinian cause or the Palestinian people. But the massacres in Gaza are war crimes of the worst proportions.

WE WILL NOT GO DOWN (Song for Gaza)

(Composed by Michael Heart)

A blinding flash of white light
Lit up the sky over Gaza tonight
People running for cover
Not knowing whether they’re dead or alive


They came with their tanks and their planes
With ravaging fiery flames
And nothing remains
Just a voice rising up in the smoky haze


We will not go down
In the night, without a fight
You can burn up our mosques and our homes and our schools
But our spirit will never die
We will not go down
In Gaza tonight


Women and children alike
Murdered and massacred night after night
While the so-called leaders of countries afar
Debated on who’s wrong or right


But their powerless words were in vain
And the bombs fell down like acid rain
But through the tears and the blood and the pain
You can still hear that voice through the smoky haze


We will not go down
In the night, without a fight
You can burn up our mosques and our homes and our schools
But our spirit will never die
We will not go down
In Gaza tonight
