Freedom Will Come

I’ve been to the holy land,
A place cherished by children of Abraham
But this bloodshed and carnage, don’t understand
Son raise your head, find the star in the night sky
Freedom will come Palestine, we hear it worldwide,

I see you creeping, over the border
So eager to take a life
Guns a blazing, you bring the horror
Tell me how you sleep at night

Children screamin, no tomorrow
That’s how they’ve lived their lives
Hope’s still burning, freedom will come
Everything’s gonna be alright

No matter how you try
You’ll never kill the hope burning bright deep inside
You may take their lives
But you’ll never kill the voice rising up
Freedom will come, Palestine

As a father buries his child,
You say she deserved to die
But aint nobody buying your lies
How can you say its right?

Demolition of homes and minds
In the eyes of a world gone blind
The revolution aint televised
In the streets, from the blood and dust,
You will hear their cry

Livin conditions vicious
Electricity missin
Villages pillaged
Mothers and children innocent victims
Indigenous however treated as if
They were the foreigner and criminal for showing resistance
Freedom limited by an occupant position
Inhibited transmission from humanitarians
This is just the beginning of these horrific incidents
Innocents disregarded so bombs drop, kill, and injure.
Tell me how hypocritical is it

To receive reparations for the crimes committed
Against you
Only to turn around and do
The same type of atrocities done to you

Face the truth
Justice will win through
And we all will answer for what we do
know oppression never lasts
Stand firm hold fast
To your faith
Let us pray Palestine
Will find freer days
