We want !


Faces masked in green, white, black
Fiery stars shining like a waving flag
Wrapped in the revolution’s shroud
The flag hides the dead from the crowd
A 2-year old girl joins the conversation

Bashar destroyed my home, she tells the nation
One solid, flowing flag, for all
One people, big and small, short and tall
One, two, three, four, five small ones
Put into body bags, daughters and sons
Martyr after martyr wrapped in white
Carried on shoulders, lost for the fight
This is a peaceful protest, a sign reads

We want a just leader, that actually leads
Young men with spirits that never cease
The people’s self-appointed police
Blood, money, on walls in graffiti

We want him gone, gone, no treaty
The lion with footsteps across his face
It’s only a matter of time for his replace
Girls that are eight, nine, ten, eleven
Seeking freedom or a step up to heaven


F-R-E-E-D-O-M

All this hate, we do condemn
This is the revolution, we are the revolution
We are faces, with homes, from different places
Not numbers, not statistics, not random logistics

Children with lives, husbands and wives, but who survives?
It’s a lion against mice, fire meets ice, payment, the ultimate price
Another one of His tests, for God is always with the oppressed
North, South, East, West, we will not rest

This is the revolution, we are the revolution
We will free our Syria, she will be free
Demashq to Halab to Homs to Hama
Every rock, every tree, from land to sea
We will free our Syria, she will be free
