Away from this injustice

Away from all this ugliness

Can any of us go away?

But even if we did,

It’s inside of us

Not injustice, not ugliness

Not this filthy reality

But it’s our Homeland

The one we can’t be free in

The one we can’t be safe in

A 16 year old kid kidnapped

Burned from the inside with gasoline

Set on fire while still alive

Burned to die so they could be pleased

God damn those blood thirsty creatures

Oh dear Mum, don’t you cry

They burned him alive we know

But they woke the whole kingdom at night

Oh dear Mum, don’t you cry

As for your relief all Palestine thrives

Rocks might be all we have in our hands

But remember Mum what you used to say

What every free great man used to say

No matter how dark it gets

The sun will come out soon

Rocks might be all we have in our hands

But his blood is our fuel

His last sighs and last cries

Even his last words are our guides

His death, oh his death

His death made us all rise

His death made us all unite

They think that bombing Gaza every night

Will make us stop and leave our pride

But they shall always be wrong

As it’s our home, our land

They think that their terror will be useful

They think what they did, and what they do

Is always nothing related to brutal

They think that killing, kidnapping, running over us

Will make us stop our freedom bus

But they shall always be wrong

As it’s our home, our land

Our mother Palestine
