Rachel Corrie, Rachel Corrie
You stood up, so they took you down
Now there's lots of people call themselves patriots
Waving flags in your home town
Cuz they're dropping bombs now
They're dropping bombs now
At least you didn't live to see this day
It's blacker than the bottom of a mine shaft
Broken as a wrecked train
Rachel Corrie, Rachel Corrie

I know you didn't have a wish to die
So young and so far away from home
Our mourning fills up the night sky
And I wish I could say I'm as brave as you
But I try to do what I can do
Your death will not be in vain
Rachel Corrie, we remember your name
In the fight for peace and justice
Your heart was good, your heart was true
You went to Palestine to understand
The truth of children playing in the puddles
Of an occupied land

Rachel Corrie, Rachel Corrie
You stood up, so they took you down
Now I hope you can hear the cry for peace and justice
Coming out of your home town
I hope you can hear the cry for peace and justice
Coming out of your hometown
