Child Prisoners

Album: Dissidence [2007]


An urgent appeal to free the almost 400 Palestinian children locked up in Israeli jails, often without a formal charge and without proper legal procedures.
Take Huda - She was taken in a raid
Indiscriminately, she never knew why she was made
To bow down and let her eyes blindfold
Her hands in cuffs she was never even told
Was treated rough

On her way from school only 16 years old
Was treated rough but why she was never told
They took her in the jeep straight to the prison camp
Where she was told she'd stay in a cell cold and damp

Child prisoners in a Zionist cell
Waiting for someone to free her from this hell
That's the practice of the state of Israel
And the time has come for us to ring the bell

Child prisoners, child prisoners, child prisoners in Israel
Child prisoners, child prisoners, child prisoners in a Zionist cell

Sometimes too hot to bear sometimes the unclean air
Made her sick to the stomach and she felt so scared
Would she ever see mommy and daddy again
Would those evil men keep her till the very end

Child prisoners in a Zionist cell
Waiting for someone to free her from this hell
That's the practice of the state of Israel
And the time has come for us to ring the bell

Baby come home
'cause Daddy misses you
And Mommy too…

Hundreds of Palestinian children are languishing in Israeli Jails - set them free !

Child prisoners, child prisoners, child prisoners in Israel
Child prisoners, child prisoners, child prisoners in a Zionist cell

She can't even count the times they beat her up
Terrified from the wild dogs threatening to eat her up
And those angry looking men shouting in her ear
If you don't do as you're told you will always stay here

And the ice-cold water that they threw on her
She felt like she would die it all became a blur
She doesn't even remember the things as they were
But she knows she was wishing it to stop –stop –stop

Child prisoners in a Zionist cell
Waiting for someone to free her from this hell
That's the practice of the state of Israel
And the time has come for us to ring the bell

Child prisoners, child prisoners, child prisoners in Israel
Child prisoners, child prisoners, child prisoners in a Zionist cell

Set them free
Gotta set the children free…
