War Crimes

If someone bombs a neighborhood
It has to be understood

That civilians will be in the path

Of their bombs,

Their firebombs,

Their cluster bombs,

Their deadly bombs,

Those civilians will die

From those bombs

In ’45, from Nuremburg

Around the world this vow was heard

Never again to close our eyes, to war crimes

War crimes

War crimes     

To everyone this law applies

Never again to close our eyes

To war crimes

We’re telling you this is the time

For human rights in Palestine

Checkpoints, siege, and a-part-heid

Can’t go on

President Obama, please

Don’t keep a people on their knees

Never again means every single

Human being
