lyrics

Castaway with hundred thousands on a barren strip
Of wasteland caught between walls and fences
They live in a jailhouse with no roof
Wasteland caught in a giant trap

Just a simple farmer’s child, now evicted since the occupation
From their land and displaced to a camp, slowly succumbing to a strategy of broken bones

This generation grows up in a virtual prison
Childhood memories filled with bulldozed houses
A strawberry field, a playground, shelled to shreds
Shelled to shreds!

“I never asked any god for a promised land, we just need a home
How can you live where fear is like your shadow, always there?
The only hope is that like any wall, this one too will fall, in time...”

At checkpoints, barrels are pointed at whoever is stamped "P"
Freedom here only exists in the hearts and in the minds of millions of refugees

When he’s tired of throwing rocks into armoured trucks, the only way out seems up in downtown Bayt Lahiya!
