"1000 Years War" as written by and Emily Wells....
When the rains came
the streets filled up like rivers
and we floated down um like they were our own
our toxic lungs, oblivious to the sun
we were only, inspired by babies

some nights it was hard, so hard to breathe
in spite of it all, we woke up every morning
In spite of it all, in spite of it all, we woke up everyday
walkin around, so happy and gay

there there on the hill, a man came bearing tidings
with a gun, and a grim look on his face
He said, I, I crossed the river
I heard what they had to say,
and there's no telling when we'll see the end
I looked at him blankly, I said I don't understand my friend.
He said, Thousands of years and we're only a few days in.
thousands of years, thousands of years and we're only a few days in
in spite of it all, I wake up every morning
In spite of it all, in spite of it all, he said, I wake up everyday
I wake up cause there's no other way.

I thought it was hard, seeing the man with the earnest face
but there on the hill, someone's carrying water
A little boy with a limp, a mother who's been grieving ever since
Grieving ever since, grieving ever since,
GRIEVING, EVER SINCE SHE CAN REMEMBER!
in spite of it all, in spite of it all they wake up every morning
in spite of it all, they wake up everyday

so many flags in the sand, blue and white, greens yellows and reds
don't forget that old red white and blue
what are you fighting for, fighting for a promised land
wandering around in the desert sands
when will it ever end? when will it ever end?
more and more people, never, ever more land.
in spite of it all. in spite of it all you keep on shooting your guns, dropping your bombs,
KILLING ANYONE!

in spite of it all in spite of it all
you wake up every morning
in spite of it all, you wake up everyday.
