I woke up from the dream
To find it all the same
The pain was still here
And the world looked away
The world looked away
The world looked away

Palestine burns
The curfew lingers on
Invasion by night
Occupation by dawn
And the world looks away
And the world looks away
And the world looks away

Refugee's set your spirit free
Rise your souls above the dust
An F16 won't bring you down
Nor take your land from your heart

Child of Jenin
Your strength must get you through
They took your brothers once
Soon they will come for you
And the world will look away
And the world will look away

Refugee's set your spirit free
Rise your souls above the dust
An F16 won't bring you down
Nor take your land from your heart
And the world looks away
