Lyrics & Music by Johnny Punish
Album: A Daring Escape from the Empire
Gaza Peace Flotilla



Inspired by the fate of the Gaza Peace Flotilla as Israel attacked the Mavi Marmara Rachel Corrie Peace Ship on its way to provide aid to the needy in the occupied and oppressed prison camp that is the Gaza strip, Johnny Punish rips open a wound and exposes it the anti-septic light.
Exposed and without clothing, Johnny declares that We're All Human Beings and Peace, Freedom and Justice for all means just that, for all, and not just the chosen few..
We must be careful what we project
The law of attraction is always in check
Bringing us what we think
Extremists at the gate hey don't blink
'Cause what we think is what we bring
When we kiss the lies on a radical ring
And we think murder is moral thing
It only makes us forget....

That we're all Human Beings,
We're all Human Beings,
We're all Human Beings,
We're all Human Beings..

When we can't condemn an attack on the sea
On protestors just like you and me
'Cause a talking head will say on TV
That the bad guy is the man on his knees

So the shipmates defend with sticks and stones
While the pirates shoot with bullets on bones
And the death toll rises while we go home
It only makes us forget..

That we're all Human Beings
We're all Human Beings
We're all Human Beings
We're all Human Beings..

Madison Avenue overdrive
Lobbyists pay to tell the lies
Beltway people speak nothing but jive
While taxpayers try -to stay - alive

And the shipmates defend with sticks and stones
Where's my president get him on the phone
And the death toll rises and he's not home
It only makes us forget..

That we're all Human Beings
That we're all Human Beings
That we're all Human Beings
That we're all Human Beings..

That we're all Human Beingsā€¦
