[Intro: Charlie Chaplin]
The hate of men will pass, and dictators die, and the power they took from the people will return to the people. And so long as men die, liberty will never perish.

[Verse 1:]
Is it just dream?, Am I a fool for trying?
I stand defiant but my enemy's the tallest giant
Will visions be reality? they tell me never
I wanna feel the unity that Malcolm felt in Mecca
I wonder if it made sense in his last moments
People don't value the soul cause they can't hold it
Find something real beyond death and misery
And understand the present in the context of history
It's been established Sykes-Picot was a bitter marriage
Since the day Thomas Edward Lawrence tricked the Arabs
I never back stab my people like Abu Mazen
I'll overthrow the monarchs like Abdul Karim Qassem
This is a battle that many better men have died fighting
But I hope to give an insight through my writing
My pen fires at the men who defend liars
I send fire till the end of your empire

[Chorus:]
We will fight to live
We will not give up
We will not give in
We will rise

[Verse 2:]
Guess who's back, descendant of the occupied
I represent the sentiments of many men you've colonized
The President is eloquent but he's never been on my side
Melanin's irrelevant cause everything was prophecised
There was a time when they talked about the Arab Nation
Broke our good leaders replaced them with a pack of masons
Took your Keffiyeh and changed it to a fashion statement
You sat with Satan, Camp David means assassination
Peace in your imagination, that's not real
I've been where Arafat got poisoned and Sadat got killed
I'm not a martyr, just a man without a Masters or a master
Trying to unite the people like Abdul Nasser
This is a battle that many better men have died fighting
But I hope to give an insight through my writing
My pen fires at the men who defend liars
I send fire till the end of your empire

[Hook: singer]
We will fight to live
We will not give up
We will not give in
We will rise

And through the blood and tears
We will not give up
We will not give in
We will rise

[Verse 3:]
If you're my brother, you're my brother but please be loyal
Comrades for life till we're deep in soil
They came to the middle east told us we need royals
Just ask Mossadeq about BP Oil
Look at history, the pecking order you will discover
Nationalize your resources watch your children suffer
Are you still my brother?
Even if BAE Systems gives us weapons to kill each other
I strike back at the empire till it falls
Most of us invest our money in building walls
Mark the words of the lyricist that's written this
Any money that I do make will build a bridge
This is a battle that many better men have died fighting
But I hope to give an insight through my writing
My pen fires at the men who defend liars
I send fire till the end of your empire

Chorus
