Immortal Technique- The Martyr/ (Idlib, Syria Bombing November 6 footage.) Lyrics:
0:00:04.000,0:00:07.000
[Intro]
I'm content in dying for my beliefs



0:00:09.000,0:00:17.000
So cut off my head and make me a martyr
The people will always remember it



0:00:17.000,0:00:22.000
No, they will forget



0:00:36.000,0:00:44.000
A man who walks with God, can walk anywhere
Hence I fear nothing



0:00:44.000,0:00:51.000
[Verse 1]
The point of guerilla war is not to succeed
It's always been just to make the enemy bleed



0:00:51.000,0:00:57.000
Depriving the soldiers of the peace of mind that they need
Bullets are hard to telegraph, when they bob and they weave



0:00:57.000,0:01:03.000
The only way a guerilla war can ever be over
Is when the occupation can't afford more soldiers



0:01:03.000,0:01:08.000
Until they have to draft the last of you into the service
And you refuse because you don't see the purpose


0:01:08.000,0:01:12.000
The only way to counter the insurgents that are well-equipped
Is to paint the people fighting for freedom as "terrorists"



0:01:12.000,0:01:20.000
Then find a faction looking for foreign investment
Install them in power & murder any objections


0:01:20.000,0:01:24.430
You can't stop a revolution from breathing so to beat em'
They offer people the illusion of freedom


0:01:24.000,0:01:32.000
But when your done dreaming and wake up tortured for treason
Then you can see them hiding behind the god they believe in


0:01:32.000,0:01:38.000
[Hook]
Deep in the trenches, in the heart of a war
That's the place a martyr is born (motherfucker, it's on!)


0:01:38.000,0:01:43.430
During the night before the start of the dawn
That's the place a martyr is born (motherfucker, it's on!)


0:01:43.000,0:01:50.000
When gunshots raining in the heart of a storm
That's the place a martyr is born (motherfucker, it's on!)

0:01:50.000,0:01:56.000
Guerilla war when the army is gone
That's the place a martyr is born (motherfucker, it's on!)


0:01:56.000,0:02:01.000
[Verse 2]
The purpose of life is a life with a purpose
So I'd rather die for a cause than live a life that is worthless


0:02:01.000,0:02:07.000
I don't need the circus or the day of national observance
I need you to think for you and stop being a servant


0:02:07.000,0:02:13.000
Pawns only move a square in the game that they're used in
And realize it too late like the shooting of Huey Newton


0:02:13.000,0:02:18.000
Or Patrice Lumumba and Salvador Allende
Slaughtered by the power-hungry branches of their own gente



0:02:18.000,0:02:25.000
Ghandi wasn't killed by Pakistani nationals
He was assassinated by a Hindu radical


0:02:25.000,0:02:30.000
And Che Guevara, rebel to a U.S. continent
Was sold to the C.I.A. by Bolivian communists


0:02:30.000,0:02:37.000
Wasn't Yitzhak Rabin murdered by a Zionist
And Anwar Sadat a victim of the same violence?


0:02:37.000,0:02:43.000
Malcolm X was seen as a threat to the F.B.I
But to blast 'em they used Muslims from the N.O.I


0:02:43.000,0:02:47.430
Even the 35th President of the Republic
Was murdered by factions of his own government


0:02:47.000,0:02:54.000
So now that it's proven, that a soldier of revolution
Or head of an empire, disguised in a constitution


0:02:54.000,0:03:00.000
Can not escape the retribution or manipulation
Of the self-appointed rulers of the planet's corporations


0:03:00.000,0:03:06.000
So I'mma need every generation to put your hands up
Cause you can only get 'em off your back when you stand up!



0:03:06.000,0:03:12.000
[Hook]
Deep in the trenches, in the heart of a war
That's the place a martyr is born (motherfucker, it's on!)

0:03:12.000,0:03:18.000
During the night before the start of the dawn
That's the place a martyr is born (motherfucker, it's on!)

0:03:18.000,0:03:24.000
When gunshots raining in the heart of a storm
That's the place a martyr is born (motherfucker, it's on!)

0:03:24.000,0:03:30.000
Guerilla war when the army is gone
That's the place a martyr is born (motherfucker, it's on!)


0:03:33.000,0:03:49.000
[Outro]
I was a man blessed by God to survive some of the worst circumstances
I had many things; a beautiful woman I loved, a home, money



0:03:50.000,0:04:02.000
And I gave it all up to bleed and to die free
Sometimes I look back on that life and I wonder what it would've been like


0:04:02.000,0:04:12.000
And in moments of weakness I think about trading it
Then I snap the fuck out of it and I get back to my reality



0:04:12.000,0:04:22.000
And I realize that I'm in the heart of a war
And that's the place a martyr is born



The purpose of life is a life with a purpose
So I'd rather die for a cause than live a life that is worthless.
