They say the skies of Lebanon are burning
They're showing pictures on the television
And we're still at it in our own place
Still trying to carve tomorrow from a tombstone
But hey, don't listen to me
We've heard too much of that before
Till the mornin' dew comes fallin'
And I want to take you to the island
And in the evening when the sun goes down

White washing slogans on our ship yard walls
No way our holy flag is gonna fall
Up here we sacrifice our children
And teach them dying will lead us into glory
But hey, don't listen to me.
I've sung too much of that before
Till the mornin' dew comes fallin'
I want to take you to the island
And in the evening when there's no one around

And I know this peace and love's just copping out
Is just what being free is all about
Will bring us all together in the end
Freedom
