Land Of The Prophets
In solidarity with the Palestinian civilians living under occupation By: Ehab Shawky
They face it with silence
They couldn’t speak anymore
Words are so heavy with a faded existence
An existence which most people ignore
I can hear their screams from a long distance
I can hear the screams of what they’re hoping for
Why don’t we end our absence?
Why don’t we open the door?
When will we end the misguidance?
When will we realize that this is war?
When will we fight for what we believe in?
When will our faith be strong enough to fight & win?
When will my sword be in my own hand?
When will it shatter my enemies’ lines like strong wind does to sand?
When will we from our trap get out?
When will we believe that we can & stop the doubt?
When will we restore back our brains?
When will we break out from occupation chains?
When I remember my land I’m speechless
I just let my imagination in my awakness dream soar
When will our sun rise again & shine through the darkness?
When will we make our souls from sins pure?
When will our voices strike our enemies’ ears like thunder?
When will our voices with God is greater roar?
It’s their intentions that are sacrilegious
& Our dead bodies are the door
Our revolution they must never suppress
We must get back we must shake off the bore
Dying young is painless
But doing nothing is a sore
We shall never rest till the truth prevails
Of that to our God we swore
We shall fight till we win or die
For a tide never rests till it reaches its shore
We’re gonna give them a nightmare with our resistance
Of that they can be sure
For no matter how dark our way is
Its end we shall seek & not less
And our enemy we shall face
With no fear on our place
We shall stand & fight
Till we see the sun’s light
We’ll never run or hide
For we’re not alone, God is on our side
And our land we shall redeem
For martyrdom is our dream
And our blood shall quench the thirst of the sand
Till we retrieve the freedom of our land
Born in the land of the prophets is a grace
And on our land; the motto of freedom we shall forever raise.
