Love in the Time of Corona


Inspired by the proud attitude of the Palestinian resistance, but applicable to any struggle against injustice ..
I stare it in the faceā€¦

Reality
I stare it in the face
My mentality
Is to never be fazed
by mortality
It's a never-ending chase
Its lethality
Can only be embraced

Neutrality
Is the opportunist way
Normality
Is the mask of those who say
That formality
Is to keep everything grey
And brutality
Is the method of today

When the heat is on
And there's no way to avoid it
Just stare it in the face
Stare it in the face

Protect your Home, be strong
Opposing those who will destroy it
Just stare it in the face
Stare it in the face
[x2]


Supremacy
I stare it in the face
If they menace me
I respond at my own pace
Hypocrisy
Always leaves a smelly trace
But the prophecy
Has it ending in the blaze
Unfazed, head high,
Because the limit is the sky
Injustice dreads
The ones who simply won't comply
If might makes right
We will just have to break its stride
Because you only live once
So don't go down without a fight

Protect your Home be strong
Opposing those who will destroy it
Just stare it in the face
Stare it in the face
[x2]


Free your mind, and your hands will follow
Your feet will gain speed like summer's first swallow
There's two things they can never take away from me
And that's my insubordination and my dignity

I look at it all
And I stare it in the face
I have my dreams and goals
That can never be erased
My aims may be tall
But it's case by case
While they're building walls
We will demolish this disgrace


Protect your Home be strong
Opposing those who will destroy it
Just stare it in the face
Just stare it in the face
