We Will Not Go Down (Song for Gaza)



A blinding flash of white lightLit up the sky over Gaza tonightPeople running for coverNot knowing whether they’re dead or alive
They came with their tanks and their planesWith ravaging fiery flamesAnd nothing remainsJust a voice rising up in the smoky haze
We will not go downIn the night, without a fightYou can burn up our mosques and our homes and our schoolsBut our spirit will never dieWe will not go downIn Gaza tonight
Women and children alikeMurdered and massacred night after nightWhile the so-called leaders of countries afarDebated on who’s wrong or right
But their powerless words were in vainAnd the bombs fell down like acid rainBut through the tears and the blood and the painYou can still hear that voice through the smoky haze
We will not go downIn the night, without a fightYou can burn up our mosques and our homes and our schoolsBut our spirit will never dieWe will not go downIn Gaza tonight
