We Will Not Go Down!

Akhirnya ketemu juga lagu yang biasa dijadiin background musik untuk acara berita tentang Palestina di tvOne. Sebenarnya sih gue nggak berusaha mencari lagu ini (soalnya nggak tahu judul lagu dan penyanyinya), tapi pas gue lagi blog walking, ada blogger (Dedi Gunawan) yang memberitahukan lirik dan link lagu ini di blognya.

Palestine

Musiknya sih biasa saja. Tapi gue suka sama liriknya. Bikin semangat. Dan mengingatkan gue akan sesuatu hal. Yaitu tidak akan ada negara atau orang yang mau dijajah. JANGAN BERMIMPI, pihak yang terjajah akan memberikan secara cuma-cuma tanah airnya. Mereka pasti akan memberikan perlawanan. Mungkin perlu 350 tahun (seperti yang dialami Indonesia ketika dijajah oleh Belanda), mungkin 1000 tahun atau bahkan tidak akan pernah merdeka. Tapi satu hal yang pasti, mereka (Palestina) akan memberikan perlawanan SAMPAI KAPANPUN!

We Will Not Go Down (Song for Gaza)
Composed by Michael Heart

A blinding flash of white light
Lit up the sky over Gaza tonight
People running for cover
Not knowing whether they’re dead or alive

They came with their tanks and their planes
With ravaging fiery flames
And nothing remains
Just a voice rising up in the smoky haze

We will not go down
In the night, without a fight
You can burn up our mosques and our homes and our schools
But our spirit will never die
We will not go down
In Gaza tonight

Women and children alike
Murdered and massacred night after night
While the so-called leaders of countries afar
Debated on who’s wrong or right

But their powerless words were in vain
And the bombs fell down like acid rain
But through the tears and the blood and the pain
You can still hear that voice through the smoky haze

We will not go down
In the night, without a fight
You can burn up our mosques and our homes and our schools
But our spirit will never die
We will not go down
In Gaza tonight
