WE WILL NOT GO DOWN (Song for Gaza)

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

==========================
ini lagu yang aku sering denger di tipi, iklan sms-konten, dalam banget maknanya, coba dicerna kata per kata, kalimat per kalimat… bener-bener menyentuh.
Apa yang akan kita lakukan seandainya kita yang berada di sana?
Buat para calon legislatif, bayangkan semua itu terjadi pada anda. Jangan hanya memikirkan poster anda yang dirobek, poster anda yang jatuh menimpa pejalan kaki, poster anda yang mengganggu pemandangan di jalan, terus terang, poster anda sangat buruk. Tidak berguna sama sekali, lebih baik anda menghabiskan uang dana kampanye anda membangun satu sekolah di pedesaan atau menyumbangkan buku sekolah atau pakaian.

Tangan yang menolong lebih baik daripada mulut berkoar tentang masa depan negeri.
