Bring Down The Wall

Doc Jazz
Lingua: Inglese



Near your picture on the mantelpiece lies a souvenir
But this little piece of concrete has a special atmosphere

'cause it reminds me of the time when you and I were in Berlin
When the people tore the wall down we watched it with a grin

But yesterday the papers had some quite disturbing news
They're building yet another wall to split the Arabs from the Jews

They're calling it a safety fence to make it look so good
But the truth of the Apartheid wall is so.. misunderstood

So I say: No, no
No to the wall
This prison will not last
This structure will fall
Apartheid is your policy
but we will not let it be
So we say: No, no
Forget it, we'll bring down the wall

With merciless destruction the wall is crawling through the hills
Olive trees and orange orchards killed by bulldozers and drills

Land is stolen from the farmers, people losing homes and plants
Endless violent occupation, will this nightmare never end?

With continued dispossession because of Israeli greed
Palestinians live their lives under a system based on creed

Because Zionist Apartheid is the engine of the game
Without respect for other peoples there will never be a change

So I say:
No, no
No to the wall
This prison will not last
This structure will fall
Apartheid is your policy
but we will not let it be
So we say no, no
Forget it
We'll bring down the wall

If you're looking for security you need not build a wall
Just recognizing Palestine is the essence of it all

There is no need to build a wall of concrete and steel
So stop the occupation, stick to your end of the deal

So I say: No, no
No to the wall
This prison will not last
This structure will fall
Apartheid is your policy
but we will not let it be
So we say: No, no
Forget it, we'll bring down the wall
…We'll bring down the wall
