The Occupation

SONG:  The Story Behind “The Occupation”

I wrote and recorded this painful sad song to bring more attention to what’s going on in the Holy Land.

The future of our soul is at stake. We simply cannot look the other way while U.S. Taxpayers continue to fund this mess. The children of Palestine are people too!

I’ve also dedicated this song to the late Rachel Corrie, a true blue American Hero. She stood up and gave her life for all of us…..

We need to start a movement to get a monument to her made in D.C. so that millions of Americans can learn what a hero she truly is for her people and everyone around the world who supports liberty, freedom, and the right to self-determination. So I kindly urge you to learn more about Rachel.

Finally, if you feel compelled, please pass it around and post it on your social networking sites. After 60 years, it’s time to end this…

LYRICS

the-occupationThe Occupation (Punish)

Your trail of tears
Mark through your years
Making enemies of men

Your blood runs red
You find your children dead
It’s hell on earth to fight in the street

They build a wall
It’s 2010 feet tall
As if Berlin had never been

Where’s is the law
Deals made at the casbah
Your brother is selling you out

The occupation
Just a segregation
Humiliation
Is this the nation
That you cry for
A confiscation
Rachel CorrieYour exploitation
Obliteration
No-Self-Determination

Rachel Corrie
Hero death or glory
Do you even know her name?

She sacrificed
then gave up her life
In the battle of the home Bulldozers

If God had mercy
Then what the heck’s the hurry
Can’t they see she’s just a young kid

Are they insane
Now we know their name
It’s Mister I Hate Humanity

The occupation
Just a segregation
Humiliation
Is this the nation
That you cry for
A confiscation
Your exploitation
Obliteration
No-Self-Determination

Self-determination is the free choice of men
With the power to decide how you want to live again
It’s the right of the people of a nation to be governed
As they please without the influence of another

They stole your land
Now you understand
How the art of war has been played

But it’s too late
60 years of hate
Has left with you a rock in your hand

But they got bombs
And the soccer moms
You know they got a gun to your head

What can you do
This coke is for you
And no one will ever be free

The occupation
Just a segregation
Humiliation
Is this the nation

That you cry for
A confiscation
Your exploitation
Obliteration

Who will fight for
the liberation
what’s the explanation
Capitulation

Cause you know that
our generation
An Obama-nation
With a fixation

On the world of
Globalization
A complication
For self determination
