EASY BLOOD

Hailstones of fire                                                                                                                                       Rain down on land                                                                                                                               Injuring or killing                                                                                                                                        Any child, woman and man                                                                                                                 That’s in their way

Their path of flight                                                                                                                              Despite what some say                                                                                                                      Doesn’t discriminate                                                                                                                                  Just disseminates                                                                                                                                      Both destruction                                                                                                                                          and the oppression                                                                                                                                         Of innocents just wanting                                                                                                                            to live their lives

They say they’re defending land                                                                                                             But how can one defend                                                                                                                      what’s already occupied                                                                                                                           And how can the world                                                                                                                          Stand idly by                                                                                                                                              while this massacre takes place                                                                                                         before our eyes

But Palestinians are seen                                                                                                                              as easy blood                                                                                                                                                    by governments worldwide                                                                                                                   Their causalities                                                                                                                                     simply statistics                                                                                                                                              to who accepts this genocide

And these innocents can’t escape as they’re                                                                        BLOCKED                                                                                                                                                          By a surrounding wall                                                                                                                BLOCKED                                                                                                                                                          By their Palestinian passports

So they’re stuck where they’re at                                                                                                              As the bombs are fired again                                                                                                               When will someone condemn this                                                                                                        and demand the slaughter ends?
