THE DOC JAZZ SONGBOOK

ILLAR PUBLISHING HOUSE


Preface This songbook features 70 of the songs of the Palestinian songwriter Doc Jazz - which does not mean it contains the lyrics to all the songs he has ever written. Nevertheless, if you are a fan of his music, you will find that this book can be of great use, since it bundles together the lyrics of most of his songs in English. Two of the songs in this volume are in transcribed Arabic, but these are immediately followed by their English translation. Doc Jazz has written more songs in Arabic, and also several in Dutch, yet the words to those songs have not been included here, but can be found on the internet. You may find that sometimes the words in the song recordings differ slightly from the lyrics you will find in this book. In most cases, this concerns lyrics which were originally written to the song, but were eventually left out when the music was recorded. Typical of the songs of Doc Jazz is that most of his songs deal with political subjects, many of which are related to the Palestinian cause for liberation and independence. Nevertheless, you will find that ordinary topics of life and of love are also wellrepresented in his work. The order of the songs in this book is not exactly chronological, nor based 7


on the topics, but older songs will generally be found more towards the end of the book. This mirrors the order of the songs as it is found on the Soundclick music website, making it easier for online listeners to find the lyrics to the songs they are listening to. If you have a copy of the albums Front Door Key (2007) or inSURGency (2008), this songbook should be a welcome addition to your library, since all the lyrics of the songs on these albums can be found here. On page 198 of this book you will find a song index to help you find the song you are looking for. For more information about Doc Jazz and his songs, and in order to listen to the songs online or buy the albums, the following web links are of importance: http://www.docjazz.com http://www.soundclick.com/docjazz Enjoy the music of Doc Jazz, and spread the word!

Intifada Š Copyright 2001 Doc Jazz http://soundclick.com/share?songid=1533160

Occupation is a hazardous game If you get your hands dirty it will burn you like a flame They want us to bow down surrender our home town For building colonies creating a show down It's not political or meta-analytical It's plain and straight war crimes targeting civilians North American Indians, Australian Aboriginals The people of the land all wiped into oblivion It is never right to steal another people's country Your Uebermensch philosophy has smothered your morality No fake excuses, no media control Can cover up the crime It is vivid to us all Because in Palestine There are people trying Just to live their life in peace Though they're occupied You can't control their lives Because they're fighting to be free Have you heard the story about 1948 I'm sure you've heard a story but not what took place Ethnic cleansing like the kind you saw in Kosovo Protected by the powerful and treated o so lovable

11


Justice? seems they don't know what that is They say: power is a healthy way of solving this quiz Military power, economical power Without continuous infusions they wouldn't last an hour You better stop breaking our bones You better stop wrecking our homes You better stop stealing our lands Beware of the anger of the innocent Because in Palestine There are people trying Just to live their life in peace Though they're occupied You can't control their lives Because they're fighting to be free It's a tragedy of inhumanity Would you rather close your eyes? Can't go on this way Just wake up someday Or you will have to pay the price People of the world beware of Zionism It's a racist ideology like National Socialism United Nations Resolution 3379 You wiped it from the records but not from our minds We will never give up We're ready for the fight Never give up Beloved Palestine Never give up The struggle to survive 12


We're rising up To rescue Palestine We will never give up We're ready for the fight Never give up Beloved Palestine We're rising up Intifada We're rising up Intifada

The Wall Must Fall Š Copyright 2005 Doc Jazz http://soundclick.com/share?songid=2921721

Time flies When you're having fun Anyone who's been there can tell But as days pass Things are being done And the story becomes harder to sell If crime pays Business is a boom Your corporate devils soaring up high But their violent ways Are starting to consume The fabric of the parachute That keeps them in the sky Even while you build your walls Your self-conception is false This land will never be yours Cause the more hatred you cause The more you’ll grieve for the loss when the Apartheid wall falls

War games Are what you know so well Do you really think it works out to last

15


Fire and flames Can make a living hell But they'll never serve to fix up your past Justice Do you know what it means Or do you think its something meant to avoid But you must face The inevitable scene Your Apartheid wall is gonna be Eventually destroyed

16


Running Out of Time © Copyright 2005 Doc Jazz http://soundclick.com/share?songid=2657582

Don’t ask me when it all went wrong I know it was some time ago Don’t ask me why its been so long These are the things that I just don’t know We've been living here and what’s out of sight Goes out of mind Even wrong and right Becomes so hard When you're running out of time Don’t ask me bout those crazy freaks They been messing up for so long Don’t ask me why I try to speak out By writing these heartfelt songs I don’t want the things that are out of sight To go out of mind Because wrong and right Never change but now we're running out of time Lets work together We're running out of time It's now or never We're running out of time Through stormy weather We're standing side by side Its a great endeavor But we gotta start now 17


Cause we're almost Running out of time

Don’t ask me why they break the rules They think that time is on their side Don’t ask me why they think we're fools Maybe their eyes been blinded by their pride

18


Positive Effect Š Copyright 2005 Doc Jazz http://soundclick.com/share?songid=3324154

I can't wait .... I can't wait Till freedom comes And life will be so dear I can't wait Till the darkness goes After all these years There's a light on the horizon And darkness starts to fade And all the shadows lose their deep dark corners Reveal what was in their shade What we need is some positive effect Something real to reinforce our self-respect Do you feel the effect is quite direct What you feel when you put your hand in mine There's always reason for complaining But there also comes a time When people put their hands together And resolve all nations' crimes If we agree that we're all equal Then why infringe on another's rights? Abuse their power and their magnitude Do they believe that right is might?

19


Why keep on sending in their soldiers To bend the flow of oil their way? Why do they prove to the rest of the world That they can't deal with the power without going astray? Just to feed the greed of the corporate industries They declare a permanent state of war in their ministries Do they think the people of the world don’t see the discrepancies? "Spread democracy" is the word, but the truth is malignancy

What's their justification For the destruction of these nations For all the killing, and billing, and banking, and spilling Takes us one step back in humanity And one step forward in primitivity Free Palestine, free Iraq right now It's the only way we can advance anyhow Let's join our hands together, put these words into effect Let's return to the world its self-respect!

2010 Š Copyright 2010 Doc Jazz http://soundclick.com/share?songid=8560959

Save your energy We've heard it all before You say that things will change But you don't sound so sure No need to listen to a promise you won't keep It's a daydream And talk is cheap Euphemisms Won't change reality A cataclysm Is what you really hope to see YES YOU CAN commit a crime and make it seem Like a major feat Of self-esteem It's the hypocrisy of fake democracy It's 2010 When will we begin To make a new start And let soulvation in It's 2010 When will we begin To let justice prevail

21


This way we all will win There's a lesson but It still hasn't been learned If you reach too far Your fingers will be burned Civilization is not the same as endless greed It's an illusion That we don't need It's the hypocrisy of fake democracy It's 2010 When will we begin To make a new start And let soulvation in It's 2010 When will we begin To let justice prevail This way we all will win It's 2010 So stop those wars right now It's 2010 You gotta stop those wars right now

22


Come Closer © Copyright 2005 Doc Jazz http://soundclick.com/share?songid=3389690

I’ve heard enough for now about politicians Come closer to me I’ve seen enough today to cloud my visions Come closer to me While they ruin the world outside this room Let’s pretend the globe is far from doomed Just come closer cause I’ve missed your eyes Let’s pretend that we're in paradise I work so hard and make an honest living Come closer to me But it's all worth it it's taking and giving Come closer to me Let’s take a time out from the game of life And embrace the fact that we're alive Just come closer cause I’ve missed your eyes Let’s pretend that we're in paradise Move closer Move closer Now

23


I've been so busy now I owe you some attention Come closer to me What took me so long is beyond my comprehension Come closer to me Oooh girl I missed your eyes I'm not evading my responsibilities Just taking a break from all the hostilities I've been so busy now I owe you some attention Come closer, come closer to me

Free Jerusalem © Copyright 2007 Doc Jazz http://soundclick.com/share?songid=4953604

Well I know it’s always been part of this world And it will always be around But I still hate violence And when it’s going on here and when its going on there There is another awkward sound The sound of silence Tell me how would it be if we could only agree To never let a culprit pass His law of hatred Tell me what would you do if you happened to know The injustice and distress And its not too late yet Now and then I sit and wonder Will the violence ever end Or will the tide still turn in time Will injustice forever be banned They say it’s never too late to initiate Another round of 'let’s be friends' But that’s not the problem The situation is that occupation is The root of all this mess The occupation of Jerusalem

27


Now and then I sit and wonder Will the violence ever end Or will the tide still turn in time Will injustice forever be banned It will only get worse if we continue this course And if we look the other way It’s not gonna get better If you don’t see what’s right and what is wrong Then I don’t know what to say Cause it’s now or never Now and then I sit and wonder Will the violence ever end Or will the tide still turn in time Will injustice forever be banned Free Jerusalem Free Jerusalem

28


Power of Illusion © Copyright 2005 Doc Jazz http://soundclick.com/share?songid=2674088

We live in a complicated world Nature obscured by human meddling No wonder its pains are left unheard But that doesn’t make it less unsettling Don’t we deserve to know what’s really going on Let’s separate the truth from the lies Cause Why should we fall for digital confusion Why don’t we stop the media delusion Lies don’t let the power of illusion be Let’s break free They say what you see is what you get But that isn’t always true these days If seeing is believing be prepared You’re being lured into that crazy maze Don’t we deserve to know what’s really going on Lets separate the truth from the lies Cause we Wanna stop the curtain of deceit from being drawn and closing up in front of our eyes

29


When those in the seats of power speak We'll keep on trying to clear the fog Now we know what tricks are up their sleeves No way that the tail will wag the dog

No Justice, No Peace Š Copyright 2010 Doc Jazz http://soundclick.com/share?songid=8591656

Like a sea without shores Like a home without doors Like a meadow without grass Like a window without glass It takes much more than words to achieve So much more than a promise to believe No justice, no peace No justice, no peace It is crystal clear to anyone who sees Without justice there never will be peace Like a heart that never beats Like a city without streets Like a safe without a lock Like no digits on a clock 35


It takes much more than words to achieve So much more than a promise to believe No justice, no peace No justice, no peace It is crystal clear to anyone who sees Without justice there never will be peace Like a forest without trees Like a hive without bees Like a wheel that is square Like a fur without hair It takes much more than words to achieve So much more than a promise to believe No justice, no peace No justice, no peace It is crystal clear to anyone who sees Without justice there never will be peace What was stolen has to be returned Or the lesson never will be learned

36


There's no peace on this we will insist Without justice We'll continue to resist It takes much more than words to achieve So much more than a promise to believe No justice, no peace No justice, no peace It is crystal clear to anyone who sees Without justice there never will be peace To Palestine we shall return

Song for Marwa Š Copyright 2009 Doc Jazz http://soundclick.com/share?songid=7848161

What can you do When a neighbor's disrespecting you Calling you names Without any shame And harassing you What can you do When society turns its back on you You done nothing wrong Were just getting along But there's no accepting you How can it be wrong to defend your family Who can expect you to ignore a felony So down at the courtroom where justice should be served How can this heinous crime be what that girl deserved?

Whatever they say, it wasn't just a tragedy But a disaster bound to happen with the hate they breed But we won't forget how brave you stood in dignity Forever a symbol of our fight against the bigotry We will remember you Always remember you Lady rest in peace in eternity

39


What can we say When they fan the flames of hate on us Treating us wrong For so long Is it not too late for us What can we say When the force of law ain’t safe for us Shooting her man trying to prevent a crime so murderous

40


Children of Gaza Š Copyright Š 2008 Doc Jazz http://soundclick.com/share?songid=7315684

Children of Gaza simple words cannot explain Children of Gaza how come they don't feel your pain? Pictures have spoken Words the leaders would not say They stand as a token Of injustice and foul play But tell me did they hear The children of Gaza tell me did they hear them cry And tell me did they ever Did they stop to wonder why They had to die? It is so much easier Just to turn and look away so they don't see the crimes that the violent are committing every day

Children of Palestine there is something we can do each and every time spread the word of how they're killing you

41


Where there's still hope There will still be life And we will stand behind you In times of war and strife We will make them hear The children of Gaza Break the silence of their lies Because they never ever They never stopped to wonder why The children had to die? They won't find it easy Just to turn and look away we'll make them see the crimes that the zionists are committing every day

42


Out of this Town © Copyright 2008 Doc Jazz http://soundclick.com/share?songid=6776605

I’ve had enough of this place for some time now Was just a lack of alternative I did my best to make the best of the past now But nothing is ever definitive But I'll decide to start making some pace now It's time to show some initiative Ain’t no use being stuck in this place now There are so many places where you can live I’ll pack my bags And rags And board that plane today What a day to fly away moving along Moving along If its written in fate it will happen No such thing as coincidence If you think you can make things happen All it takes seems an incident At the same time you have expectations And you hope that your dreams come true If its ever time for the celebrations Just be thankful it worked for you

Make a Change Š Copyright 2002 Doc Jazz http://soundclick.com/share?songid=1534244

War Takes its toll Everyday Wasting thousands of lives Fear Drains the soul Of its fire Making emptiness thrive Love Brings together what was torn apart Bringing peace and joy into the heart Making everything right Love Is the reason why we make the change All that's shuffled can be rearranged And brought from the darkness to the light We're gonna have to make a change And chase the darkness from the land Its time for us to rearrange And take our fates in our own hands All the poisoned minds can be washed clear We've got to let them see the light It's time to cure their morbid fear So we can end this dreadful night

45


With love, love, love We can win this troubled fight Pain Is the hurt Of a child When it cries for its mother Hate Makes a man Lose his faith And turn on his brother

46


Home (for Jenin) Š Copyright 2002 Doc Jazz http://soundclick.com/share?songid=1526565

Desolately looking at what once was home And wondering why it had to go The little girl swallows her tears Yesterday the soldiers came Took everything she had away Nothing left to live off but her fears This crazy world is letting The culprits get away Refugees in their own land Deported by a savage hand And thrown into famine and despair But around her neck the front door keys Will keep alive the memories Returning home is now her only care And now she still remembers How daddy used to say Home is always in your heart They can't take that away Be strong, even when life gets rough And nothing seems to go your way

47


Someday, justice will overcome Their lies will fall apart But till then let home live in your heart Nightmares from the screams at night Are keeping her from sleeping tight Images of fire, blood and tears The occupation is a crime Defenseless people terrified As desperation grows throughout the years Resisting occupation Is the only thing to do Whatever happened in Jenin Was deliberately kept unseen A shameless crime was covered up in veils But as time goes by we won't forget The truth will be uncovered yet As long as we are there to tell the tale

My Shoe (is 2 good 4 u) Š Copyright 2008 Doc Jazz http://soundclick.com/share?songid=7154112

Muntathar is a hero "Hey! Take my old brown shoe" For all the children you terrorized For all the crimes you committed with your lies For all the orphans Who lost their homes For all the tragedies You caused for your own goals Take my old brown shoe It has your name on it Its coming straight towards your face And that's the shame of it Because you fool no matter what you do Even my shoe is too good for you Hey! Take my old brown shoe For all the people in Arab lands

49


who have been occupied and tortured by your hands For all these brothers an sisters too I'm gonna take off my shoe and throw it at you Take my old brown shoe It has your name on it Its coming straight towards your face And that's the shame of it Because you fool no matter what you do Even my shoe is too good for you Hey! Take my old brown shoe Now here's the lesson You may have learned That old brown shoe Was the credit that you earned You can't continue to occupy An ancient nation that you failed to pacify

50


Take my old brown shoe It has your name on it Its coming straight towards your face And that's the shame of it Because you fool no matter what you do Even my shoe is too good for you George Bush Hey! Take my old brown shoe George Bush, hey Dubya Hey! Take my old brown shoe

Justice Leads the Way Š Copyright 2004 Doc Jazz http://soundclick.com/share?songid=1533925

Justice Leads the Way Free Palestine, it's the only way It's the only way we'll see peace one day Look at Palestine see the trouble and the pain Voices calling out for freedom are crying in vain We've got to find a way to make this world a better place But its no use trying if the causes of the problems aren't faced You cant reach peace if you're not ready to fix the mistakes of ‘48 Justice leads the way So fix the mistakes Cause if you wanna know where peace is You know justice leads the way Games of power causing hunger and distress Every minute every hour victims in a game of chess Mother, oh mama, what are we supposed to do Father, oh father, tell me what this world is coming to

Boomerang © Copyright 2006 Doc Jazz http://soundclick.com/share?songid=4335538

So You tried to call the henchmen To hang me on a rope So You tried to undermine me And thought I wouldn’t cope And You tried to vilify me And leave me without hope But your evil and your wickedness Were disgracefully exposed That is the way Of an ignoble man What goes around will come around There’s no escaping The boomerang Even though you think you can So You cooked up your conspiracy And waited for your chance You saw an opportunity And went into a trance So eager in your thirst for blood You took a faulty stance 55


You dragged them right into your scheme And danced the traitors dance That is the way Of an ignoble man What goes around will come around There’s no escaping The boomerang Even though you think you can So Let me tell you about the boomerang You'll know when it arrives Its shape you may not recognize But its wings can cut like knives But the main thing about the boomerang Is that it returns to those who threw And when it strikes them they will know The only one to blame is you

56


S.O.S. Š Copyright 2008 Doc Jazz http://soundclick.com/share?songid=7174791

Help me get out of here I need to get out of here Out of the night S.O.S. I need a volunteer Who knows the way out of here Towards the light Where there's no recognition No chance to save the day No fruits from your ambition No way to have your say The grass is always greener Words to explain away On this side of this fence The best you'll ever get is hay Where there's an institution They call democracy But to your own conclusion It's just hypocrisy Subtle is exclusion If based on your ID Im tired of this illusion I want another world to see

Birthday Babe Š Copyright 2005 Doc Jazz http://soundclick.com/share?songid=8263280

You know I'm not so into anniversaries, jubilees and other dates Seems meaningless compared to all the troubles of an average day But I've been waiting for a chance to tell you That you are a shining ray And what better day to tell you than today? (tell you that i love you, tell you that i love you) Birthday babe I've been trying to tell you how I feel But today, what a day What a day to tell you: Happy Birthday! You know it's not so easy for a man To talk about these things because It makes us feel like we're not all that tough as we would like to pose And I could tell you any day my world Revolves around you, spins around you But what better day to tell you than today? Birthday babe I've been trying to tell you how I feel But today, what a day What a day to tell you: Happy Birthday!

Just a Matter of Time © Copyright 2007 Doc Jazz http://soundclick.com/share?songid=4949560

Don't look so sad girl Lemme see that pretty smile upon your face It's not so bad girl Whatever's on your mind Is just a temporary phase It's just a matter of time And your trouble will be history It's just a matter of time Don’t you worry you can count on me There may be moments When it seems the skies are always dark and grey But even these moments Will be better if you try and see things in another way It's just a matter of time And your trouble will be history It's just a matter of time Don’t you worry you can count on me Always the pressure I can imagine it may seem too much to you But in a moment of leisure Just listen to this song and let the feelings through

Time Out Š Copyright 1994 Doc Jazz http://soundclick.com/share?songid=1550869

Sometimes I feel it all just goes too fast It's time to take a break or two Before you know it The future's already past There's barely time to do the things you want to do There's gotta be a place where love is still in rule There's gotta be a place where money's just a tool Honey let's dream we're on a distant shore together We'll spend the day just watching the waves and enjoy the sunny weather There's gotta be a place where love is still in rule There's gotta be a place where money's just a tool I'm taking a time out from the game of life I'm tired of being pushed around and 'round Don't wanna be part of this ambition race Just wanna lay back and rest my mind Living for myself is not my scene There's gotta be someone there to share your joys and pains It's the only way we can accept this world If we're in this together we can make it through the rains

65


There's gotta be a place where love is still in rule There's gotta be a place where money's just a tool I'm taking a time out from the game of life I'm tired of being pushed around and 'round Don't wanna be part of this ambition race Just wanna lay back and rest my mind I'm taking a time out from the game of life But where would I be without your loving touch Cause energy flows into my wasted mind Whenever I look into your eyes

66


For Life Š Copyright 1994 Doc Jazz http://soundclick.com/share?songid=1550683

I never thought that this love could happen I'd never dreamed there was someone like you But now that you're here I can see it's forever I've got the power and it's all for you Whatever it takes I'll be right here by your side For life I'm not a man who's afraid of decisions But I take a chance when I know that it's right Your mysterious eyes have shown me a vision Without even knowing they've changed my whole life What a difference it makes When you're right here by my side For life I'm waiting and calling and still anticipating The life I'll be building with you Whenever I see you I never wanna leave you I'll always be waiting for you The feeling keeps growing and always keeps me going It's making me feel so alive I know that it shows that it's always gonna grow and that love is the reason for life I want you to know that you're all that I care for and that I believe in this love

67


I'll always be there, good times and bad times I'll be your best friend for the rest of my life I have a dream and you're right there in it I can make it come true if you show me the way You are a lady in all your expressions A Queen among queens and I want you to stay Whatever it takes I'll be right here by your side For life Beautiful lady, don't worry, don't worry Cause everything 's gonna work out alright If it takes the strength of a thirty-ton lorry I've got the power cause I know it's right What a difference it makes When you're right here by my side For life

You can pretend you’re a sailor Just because you have a boat in the isles You can pretend you’re a tailor Cause you’re always dressed to the nines Or you might think you’re a policeman Just because you told a man how to drive Well I hate to be breaking up your peace, man But it looks to me like you need a life If we pretend hard enough We can say the worlds a beautiful place If we pretend hard enough We can hide its most ugly face If we pretend hard enough We can see what was accomplished by the human race But it’s all about nothing If they still can’t spare a child What you pretend is only your imagination Even if you need it to avoid all those frustrations In the mean time life fulfills its cruel reality Outside your bubble, there’s a world in deep discrepancy

69


You can pretend you’re a doctor Just because you sold your herbal tea You can pretend you’re a painter Who will be recognized in history You can pretend you’re a baker Just because you baked an apple pie Well I hate to be breaking up your peace man But stop trying to pretend you’re civilized You can say that there’s a model Of how the world should really be You can say that all are equal But you keep the brothers in the streets Kept in bounds by a racist system And you still claim democracy And you can claim a New World Order Under your hegemony But the people don’t agree But the people don’t agree

Bring Down the Wall Š Copyright 2003 Doc Jazz http://soundclick.com/share?songid=1526612

Near your picture on the mantelpiece Lies a souvenir But this little piece of concrete Has a special atmosphere Cause it reminds me of the time when you and I were in Berlin When the people tore the wall down we watched it with a grin But yesterday the papers Had some quite disturbing news They're building yet another wall To split the Arabs from the Jews They're calling it a safety fence to make it look so good But the truth of the Apartheid wall is so misunderstood So I say no, no No to the wall This prison will not last This structure will fall Apartheid is your policy but we will not let it be So we say no, no Forget it We'll bring down the wall

71


With merciless destruction The wall is crawling through the hills Olive trees and orange orchards killed By bulldozers and drills Land is stolen from the farmers, people losing homes and plants Endless violent occupation, will this nightmare never end? With continued dispossession Because of Israeli greed Palestinians live their lives Under a system based on creed Because Zionist Apartheid is the engine of the game Without respect for other peoples there will never be a change If you're looking for security You need not build a wall Just recognizing Palestine Is the essence of it all There is no need to build a wall of concrete and steel So stop the occupation, stick to your end of the deal

Break the Silence Š Copyright 2008 Doc Jazz http://soundclick.com/share?songid=6339237

Break the silence (Holocaust in Gaza) Stop the violence (Holocaust in Palestine) Well we were waiting for the day For zionism to throw off its mask Cuz all our efforts to unmask were such a crazy task If you would only ask you would know they ll ruin everything you built when you just point out their guilt And in the darkest of all times Genocide on display on TV The man they call Vilnai broke the seal of silence bout these crimes He broke the taboo that we tried to break down He can say that But it's my people going down But we resist What did you expect When you get no respect You take a different course And use a different source

73


But we resist What did you expect cause it's a sect zionism is the poison that they chose to inject Reject! Break the silence (Holocaust in Gaza) Stop the violence (Holocaust in Palestine) Is he saying Palestinians have got nothing to lose Just a choice between dying slow ur neck in the noose Or dying fighting with the pride that you feel inside From the jaws of genocide you can't run and hide But then the shameless people standing on the side By the crime of silence complicit in a genocide And the shameless politicians saying they want peace At the same time they do nothing to restrain the Beast But we resist What did you expect When you get no respect You take a different course And use a different source But we resist What did you expect cause it's a sect zionism is the poison that they chose to inject Reject!

74


Break the silence (Holocaust in Gaza) Stop the violence (Holocaust in Palestine) Stretching out a bloodied hand saying " I'm your friend But you gotta understand i cant get you back your land Cause I don’t like what you are and I don’t like your opinion I guess you gotta accept it sucks to be Palestinian" (NOT!) So they want us to go down smiling (no way!) And paying our respects to the flags that they’re flying (no way!) gatekeepers, gatekeepers for zionist ideology That's why we'll never ever get an apology Now that the truth is out about the state of Israel There can be no more tolerance for these acts from hell because they’re stepping up the pace to erase every single trace of Palestine that's why these children are dying These shameless people putting up an act Is impossible to swallow when you know they’re just covering up the facts

That Melody Š Copyright 2008 Doc Jazz http://soundclick.com/share?songid=6285145

There was a time when I felt so much despair saw how the tide had turned life seemed so unfair turned on the radio music filled the air It filled me with peace inside And raised me from my chair Gone were the darker thoughts face turned to a smile The battles I'd always fought Were distant for a while It may be the melody or the rhythm of the words Each soul has its symphony Waiting to be heard It's that melody It's the only one that takes away the agony of having no home It's that melody It's the song that moves the heart it's a remedy soothing my soul

77


It took me some time to learn The value of these tunes But my mind will always yearn For sunny afternoons I'll play on the guitar then A symphony for two The music will never end It's part of me and you

Closure (War Crimes) © Copyright 2007 Doc Jazz http://soundclick.com/share?songid=5943692

So you want to Close your eyes to the things that u don’t want to see Close your heart to the things that u don’t want to feel Close the door to the people that you don’t want to face Close the window cuz its such a vulnerable place Close the pan before the people had a chance to eat Close the lid on the story to appease the street Close the border with an order to suffocate Close the oxygen supply and then sit and wait Is that a life? Limiting our space also limits yourself Is this your life? Closing all the doors to peace Also hurts yourself It's a dead end street So you want to Close the deal with a seal that will resist the times Close the history books so they forget your crimes Close the prison doors and then you bury the keys Close the roads and uproot the olive trees Close the case to erase what is wrong and cruel Close the holy sites and lay down ur rules Close the schools and close the universities Close off any risk of facing adversities

79


Is that a life? Limiting our space also limits yourself Is this your life? Closing all the doors to peace Also hurts yourself It's a dead end street Close the day with a prayer for better times Close the books of pain and forgive all crimes Close the wounds with sutures of solid steel Close the sewer pipes so we can start to heal Close the past, if it lasts you wont have a life Close the zionist schools that cultivate strife Close the offices of hate like the ADL Close the doors to your wars that created this hell

Well I keep my eyes on the road While I'm driving in cruise control Cause you don't wanna get flashed When your new ride is on a roll And so my eyes Are poised for those signs I don't mind But I just wanna be on time I'm in the fast lane But it's so insane Looks like I'm late Im being delayed I'm in the fast lane So please make way Cause I don't want To make her wait Well I told that ole judge That I was only trying to be on time But he never budged And he went straight for the maximum fine Rear lights gleaming While the sun is setting in the sky Won't they make way Oh lord I wish that this car could fly

Why the Innocent Š Copyright 2005 Doc Jazz http://soundclick.com/share?songid=3079217

You're telling me you're tired of seeing crimes of hate You're telling me its time to turn the tide Well you know that I agree that things have got to change But I say there's a way to do it right You're telling me you're tired of seeing sorrow and pain And that you want to stop injustice now But tell me what’s the use of paying hate with hate Cause to me it seems that shouldn't be allowed If you believe that justice is a sacred thing Then show us that you're able to do right Cause if you think this winter can be turned to spring Well it doesn't with the flames that you ignite Why direct your anger at the weaker ones They are not the ones who caused you pain So why destroy their lives with your bombs and guns Do you think the hurt you cause will be your gain Why the innocent Tell me why oh why Why the innocent Tell me why oh why Why the innocent Why the innocent

83


You can never win by causing more pain So my heart goes out to all who were slain Breaking mother's hearts is simply insane Cause when the tears are gone the anger remains And the cycle starts all over again ....

Castles in the Sky © Copyright 2003 Doc Jazz http://soundclick.com/share?songid=1532972

They came with their power and their might They never cared what was wrong or right Creating the empire of their dreams But sometimes the truth ain’t what it seems There is a reason for this pain That's how it feels when you only seek your gain Go back to where you once came from Leave what’s not yours to whom it belongs Cause it's a fake A crazy dream They're building castles in the sky You can be my guest, but not my king Trying to enslave me is a foolish thing Do you believe this dream will last? Have you learned nothing from the past There is a reason for this pain That's how it feels when you only seek your gain Go back to where you once came from Leave what’s not yours to whom it belongs

91


Cause it's a fake A crazy dream They're building castles in the sky You cant just take what is not yours Indulge in your theft without remorse Do you sleep at night Are you satisfied Or are you terrified Are you petrified That the people are going to claim their right You can't build a castle in the sky You can't build the truth upon a lie What seems so strong can crumble away Its a house of cards and the sky looks grey The storm will come Just wait and see You will have to face Reality

There is a fly in the soup Is this what we've waited for? What about the promises on the premiss of being four star top of the bill There is a fly in the soup that's not what I voted for All those false promises While the force is Poised, sharp and ready to kill Well you can do what you wanna do And you can talk of democracy

Wake up wake up wake up! There’s something going on An ugly chapter in human history Wake up wake up wake up! Cause Israel’s committing War Crimes in the name of democracy Its been a while since this went down And still people are standing around Watching all the victims find their end History repeats itself once again When will people ever learn That sometimes silence is complicity And if you lack the power to do something about it You only wallow in hypocrisy What will you do if this gets out of hand? Will you say I never knew or say that you don’t understand Don’t forget that sometimes its wise to choose The way that doesn’t pay but goes by the rules Don’t you know that we know that you know what we know About the violence you spread, the seed of hatred you sow While we’re under the protection of international law You still manage to turn it into an international flaw

115


The law of action and reaction disrespected by you Because invasion is aggression and you know it’s the truth What can this world’s democracy, the United Nations do? If whatever they decide is simply vetoed for you People of the world respect the law There’s a reason why we have an international law The lessons learned from World War Two Were to never let a people treat another people like they wasn’t meant to be people But don’t you see the irony The victims went and made themselves a colony They took another people’s land and caused tragedy You might say a repetition of history But what was wrong then is still wrong now The Zionist agenda simply doesn’t allow Any place for Palestinians, not even in their own land But do you really think we’ll give up our land? So for human rights Support Palestine Don’t let Israel Continue in its path of crime Speak Out, Speak Out, Speak Out That’s why I am asking you to speak out loud And tell the world this shouldn’t be allowed Again I’m telling you to speak out loud Tell the world this shouldn’t be allowed

Take Huda She was taken in a raid Indiscriminately She never knew why she was made To bow down and let her eyes blindfold Her hands in cuffs She was never even told Was treated rough On her way from school Only 16 years old Was treated rough But why She was never told They took her in the jeep Straight to the prison camp Where she was told she’d stay In a cell cold and damp Child prisoner in a zionist cell Waiting for someone to free her from this hell That’s the practice of the state of Israel And the time has come for us to ring the bell

123


Sometimes too hot to bear Sometimes the unclean air Made her sick to the stomach And she felt so scared Would she ever see mommy and daddy again Would those evil men keep her till the end Child prisoner in a zionist cell Waiting for someone to free her from this hell That’s the practice of the state of Israel And the time has come for us to ring the bell Baby come home Cause Daddy misses you And Mommy too Hundreds of Palestinian children are languishing in Israeli Jails - set them Free ! She can’t even count the times they beat her up Terrified from the wild dogs threatening to eat her up And those angry looking men shouting in her ear If you don’t do as you’re told you will always stay here And the ice-cold water that they threw on her She felt like she would die it all became a blur She doesn’t even remember the things as they were But she knows she was wishing it to stop Set them Free Gotta set the children Free

Last night I watched a program on reality TV But I was so revolted by their lack of decency So then my cell phone rang and I thought Who's calling me? The hidden number roused a healthy curiosity But when I picked it up it was a lady with a plan She wanted me to sign up On her super mortgage scam I told her I was tired of all this telephone spam she started to apologize and left me feeling bad This is the Information Age (isn’t it driving us crazy) This is the Information Age (isn't it making us lazy) When I was out in town I grabbed my pocket PC Cause I needed directions to the city library But as I was still looking some dude came up to me He pointed out the sign that I had simply failed to see This is the Information Age (isn’t it driving us mad) This is the Information Age (shouldn't we try to hold back?)

131


No, no! Never gonna give up on my mobile phone Never gonna give up on my new PC I went to pay for parking and I waited in line But when it was my turn I got a terrible surprise While I was set on paying with the coins I had on me It turns out the machine wants electronic currency

Turn a New Page Š Copyright 2006 Doc Jazz http://soundclick.com/share?songid=4731214

There are times when it seems like It's all been a waste of time In one bad moment the fruit of your labor May not be worth a dime All the hours of your blood sweat and tears Seems they all have gone to waste But right from the outset you knew how life could get and it sometimes has a bitter taste But check your pulse Do you feel that beat Now isn't that A Major Feat You're alive Alive and well You made it once so start again Turn a new page There are back-stabbers, or cash-grabbers That you can't always avoid They can get on your track and derail you With all their lies and tricks deployed

133


So if it seems like you're world's 'bout to fall apart There's no need to be subdued When they shake you, they think they can break you But it all depends on you So check your pulse Do you feel that beat Now isn't that A Major Feat It means that you're alive Alive and well You made it once so start again Turn a new page

Jungle Law Š Copyright 2006 Doc Jazz http://soundclick.com/share?songid=4459085

(move to the left cuz ur movin’ to the right) What's going on What are we doing to this world What's going on I think it's time to make a turn It's not so hard to tell the good from the bad And it's not hard to see we're all being had For world control they wage a war without end And they're dividing up the dividend It's a Jungle Law (it's the Law of the Jungle) It's a Jungle Law (don't be fooled by the suits) Tried to impress us with technology But all we want is some humanity They made a hostage of democracy Turned Civilization into Mockery People everywhere, around the globe Have to wake up to reality but never lose hope The law of the jungle can only be imposed If we allow these people to continue to promote Their Jungle Law

Such a Shame © Copyright 2005 Doc Jazz http://soundclick.com/share?songid=3039944

It’s a Shame Such a Shame He was just an average man Looking for a brighter day He tried so hard to do everything right But things just wouldn't go his way He took his chance and went out one day Just to meet his fiance He didn’t know that his luck had turned they took him in a blizzard raid The world we live in is so unfair Some people never even get a chance While others get to go everywhere When they call you illegal there's no way to advance But it's a shame, such a shame Civilization is just a name Caught like a villain he sat in his cell Trying to accept his fate He promised her he would do his best But it turned out to be too late

137


A fire burned down his prison cell And he would never breathe again Eleven souls in a living hell How can this tragedy ever be explained? The world we live in is so unfair Some people never even get a chance While others get to go everywhere When they call you illegal there's no way to advance But it's a shame, such a shame Civilization is just a name

138


Say it Š Copyright 2005 Doc Jazz http://soundclick.com/share?songid=2695449

I am calling Calling out into the night It's a feeling Thats been creeping up on me inside We are moving But we don’t know what direction Are we strong and proud Or just in need of some protection Used to know what we were heading for Thought we knew how to sail these seas But it's not so easy anymore It's hard to see the forest through the trees So say it Say it to me sweetly Say it Say it to me sweetly Say it Say it to me sweetly That it's all gonna be alright That time will turn this tide And there will soon be land in sight

I am hoping Hoping you don't get me wrong You can count on me No matter what, I'll always stay strong

139


I'm still your hero And the shoulder you can lean on I just need those words Cause they're the fuel that keeps me going strong In this world gone mad We've been hoping and praying Holding our ground No matter what people were saying But even a man has his moments When he needs to know where he stands And only his woman Can understand

Doctor Tell the World Š Copyright 2005 Doc Jazz http://soundclick.com/share?songid=2168343

Spoken words by Abd el Aziz al Rantissi, captured from an interview with the BBC Rantissi: As long as the tragedy is still going ahead, no one can stop resistance... We are looking for an end for our suffering, our tragedy ... An end for all kinds of aggression against our people ... Because we will not surrender in front of Israeli terror. Doc: Doctor tell the world what we are fighting for So they can understand We will follow you, cause your words are true Until we free our land Rantissi: Who is the terrorist? The occupier, or the people under occupation? It is unbelievable to accept that formula ... We are under occupation, and according to international laws, we have the right to defend our people, to defend our land, and to fight occupiers ... Doc: Doctor tell the world what we are fighting for 141


So they can understand We will follow you, cause your words are true Until we free our land Rantissi: I am not afraid, I am looking to be a martyr... why? Because I believe that the last day for me is not in the hand of Sharon, but in the hand of Allah ... Allah is the only one who decides when I should leave this world, and I prefer to leave it (as a ) martyr ... They should say to them: stop your aggression, stop your assassination, stop your massacres ... stop your detention to Palestinians ... stop your dismissing to millions of Palestinians... They should say to the occupier: Stop. Enough is enough. Doc: Doctor tell the world what we are fighting for So they can understand We will follow you, cause your words are true Until we free our land You gave your life as a sacrifice Peace be upon you now (salaamun 3aleik) We won't let you down, we will never bow Peace be upon you now Rantissi: And they shouldn't say to the victim: Stop your resistance .. stop your hope to be free like any human being in the world

142


Stop your looking to return home ... so I want to return home Hamas looking for an end to the Palestinian tragedy ... and Hamas will do for that goal ... No one can stop resistance

American Soldier © Copyright 2005 Doc Jazz http://soundclick.com/share?songid=2118457

Never thought you’d ever be here did you now Never thought you’d ever see this did you now What you doing in these far away places Facing unknown faces Of various races Some are friends some are foes But who can be a war hero In a war that brings destruction To a land already torn Did you actually believe it When they said you could achieve it And now you're fighting for a goal But you’re not sure if you will see it Cause a lot of your friends have gone home in bags What exactly did they die for covered in flags Get your ass back home Your girl is waiting alone And your mom's apple pie Is still hot on the stove And only God knows how you miss the USA Get your ass back home Cause your war is wrong Cause they made you a killer of the innocent ones And only God knows how you miss the USA

145


Killing people is illegal under any kind of law What’s the reason that you think you are above the law Do you remember when they told you were there to fight Saddam Cause of weapons of mass destruction he was hiding in his home Now you all saw how it turned out to be a lie Are you blind Not to see a lie When the lie Is uncovered to your eye Are you blind Don’t you see the lie? Now your raging through the streets with your eyes open wide Patrolling late at night Do you wanna fight tonight Or would you rather take a flight Straight out of this place back to where it feels right Do you remember all the faces of the innocent Iraqis and innocent Afghanis that you killed with your rockets? Did you ever hear about being an honorable soldier If its possible at all well then you’re definitely not that soldier Your orders tonight were shoot to kill Kill who? but the sergeant said shoot at will And you went on a rampage with your crazy attitudes 146


Storming homes of people with your weapons and your tools Dont you feel like fools Being tools Of the one who rules HE knows your fools Taking orders from the one who makes the rules and then breaks the rules breaks the rules

The Train © Copyright 2004 Doc Jazz http://soundclick.com/share?songid=1851040

It’s a train Train of revolution Going on throughout the times It’s a chain A chain of evolution But the spirit stays alive It cant be stopped By machines and guns Its the rhythm of our lives The next generation keeps the spirit going strong And the struggle will survive Its the rain The rain of revolution Raining down on all mankind To end the pain And find a real solution To injustice and Apartheid We cant be stopped By machines and guns Its the rhythm of our lives The next generation keeps the spirit going strong And the struggle will survive

149


Lets start again Pay our debts to all the leaders Our heroes paved the way They gave their lives To build a future for our nation And we know we're gonna get there someday We cant be stopped By machines and guns Its the rhythm of our lives The next generation keeps the spirit going strong And the struggle will survive

The American Way © Copyright 2004 Doc Jazz http://soundclick.com/share?songid=1619495

I've had enough of seeing the world Being ruined by the whims of a few I've had enough of passively waiting There’s gotta be a thing we can do We’ve come a long way learning that people Have the right to live a life of their own Why would we stand and watch one nation Treat the planet like a military zone The time has come to speak up loud and say That freedom isn’t earned the American way Stand up people for freedom for all Don’t rule the world with the law of the gun We're all people Freedom for all Tell me someday we'll all be one Who defined civilization Who split the world into one two and three (what you talkin’ 'bout "Third World"?) Why do we have the United Nations If we don’t treat it with equality

151


Superpowers with murderous habits Send their soldiers into foreign lands Reinstalling the law of the jungle Until the power is in their hands Palestine under occupation Thats violated international law This racial discrimination Will bring the world to the brink of its fall Let's get it right, we can do better Dismantle the MIC (Military-Industrial Complex) A war machine that feeds on people Cant be a motor for democracy

Let's Go Together Š Copyright 1988 Doc Jazz http://soundclick.com/share?songid=1551247

Though it's only just begun I know I need you like a flower needs the sun There's no doubt about it I know that you're the only one You're my bird of paradise Girl you can take me there where the eagle flies So we can reach beyond the clouds And touch the skies So let's go No one will know Let's fly away Exchange the past For a brand new day Just listen to your heart It knows what's best Forget the rest Let's go together When you look at me your eyes Send out a burning light That sets my heart on fire It reaches deep into my soul And takes me higher

153

Stop Š Copyright 1996 Doc Jazz http://soundclick.com/share?songid=1551043

Wake up every morning to the sound of a machine Shower, shave and brush my teeth as part of a routine Breakfast is a one-bite snack and coffee is the theme To wake me up and clear my mind from that unfinished dream And I'm accelerating, never hesitating I can't afford to spend a moment meditating Contemplation in this situation Would make me hear my mind and body crying out for me to Stop Cool down What's the use of all this madness making life a pool of sadness Stop Cool down You can't do this everyday There must be another way On a rare occasion I was walking down the street A man came up to me who had no shoes under his feet He told me "You're a lucky man, I can clearly see A reason to wake up each day is what a person needs" It was an indication Of my miscalculation

155


Working hard will keep you from this degradation Learning, earning, always keeps you yearning Forever hoping that the day will never come when you will Stop And break down You'd best keep up the pace or you will land upon your face Never stop Or break down It's a struggle every day There is just no other way

156


Hazard Š Copyright 1997 Doc Jazz http://soundclick.com/share?songid=1550923

Tried to call you on the telephone Just to find you had already gone Took me just a while to realize The situation had been jeopardized It's a hazard baby There's always something going on with me It's a hazard baby There's always trouble looking out for me Told the cabbie take me to the park Sat there lonely waiting in the dark Then a man walked up to me and said Seems like things are gonna turn out bad You can try Building it up to the sky It won't pay Problems will be on their way Once you're down Keep yourself tied to the ground No use pretending to fly Just get by And you'll find There is always room for clowns

Just Another Song Š Copyright 1994 Doc Jazz http://soundclick.com/share?songid=1550894

She looked at me with her big brown eyes Just for a while and then gazed aside But the flash had it's effect Paralyzed From nowhere came this dazzling dame Playing the game of who's to blame And the arrow whistled swift Bulls eye Full moon Nothing to win or lose And the guitar was swinging away the blues Soft words Beautiful melodies And all of a sudden She looked away and said: I'm just another song I'm just another song to you A woman's heart and a fairy's mind With elven skin and angel eyes A voice as soft as silk Magnetized

159


So quick to find the weakest spot So sharp with aim, a master shot No mercy no restraint Atomized Full moon Nothing to win or lose And the guitar was swinging away the blues Soft words Beautiful melodies And all of a sudden She looked away and said: I'm just another song I'm just another song to you

Real People Š Copyright 2002 Doc Jazz http://soundclick.com/share?songid=1534158

The rising of technology has turned our souls to steel We see the troubles on TV but we don't think that its real But what goes on in Palestine is not some silly game Its time that we all realize that people are people and we're all the same It's time to wake the people of the world and let them know that freedom is a right for all Independence is the word Let's put our hands together and shout it out People - Real People Real people have a right to rule themselves People - Real people Real people don't deserve to be oppressed For 50 years the world has tolerated the abuse of Palestine For 50 years the world has gone around pretending everything was fine But all the time a nation's been uprooted its inhabitants abused Its time to stop the killing and destruction it should never be excused

Free Palestine © Copyright 2003 Doc Jazz http://soundclick.com/share?songid=1532997

don’t u think i see that my enemy has more guns than me and more apaches than me and more money than me and stronger friends than me or do you think i don’t know my enemy? my enemy is about the power of GREED while this world has so many mouths to FEED always taking never giving looking for a good living for themselves but never for the people they been killing so u wanna be friends with my enemy? i advice u to become friends with me cause at least i know what justice means so i will never harm u the culture of my ancestors will definitely charm you what do you think would come from the cradle of humanity the womb of mankind has produced its own prosperity don’t support the war machine, a machine of destruction killing anything and everything for its own production don’t forget that every single day another victim falls

163


and this tragedy must end just listen to our calls I'll keep holding on Until the walls come tumbling down and freedom is all around ... Free Palestine everywhere i go my name causes suspicion is this is a terrorist talking or is he really a physician don’t u know a palestinian is just another human and a peace loving mother and a father and a child don’t u know were not terrorists, we’re targeted by terrorists and the one with the gun is right on the other side don’t tell me ur eyes didn’t see that wall don’t tell me ur ears didn’t hear our calls don’t tell me rachel corrie was killed by an accident cause everyone knows they were making her a precedent we don’t forget those heroes the heroes of our time in a time where Greed is at the height of its crime the ones who gave their lives for palestine are forever in our hearts and in our minds

Down Down Dubya Š Copyright 2004 Doc Jazz http://soundclick.com/share?songid=1526479

"If this were a dictatorship, it'd be a heck of a lot easier... just so long as I'm the dictator" (George W. Bush during his first trip to Washington as President-Elect, Washington, D.C., Dec. 18, 2000 ) Listen to the man who is running the show In the single super power thats left in this world Cause if thats what's on his mind it sure explains so much About the way he's been dealing with the power in his clutches You wanna talk to me about the Enron deal? Or would you rather dwell upon the war on steel Do you really want to know his views on mother nature Or would you rather talk about the troubles that await ya

Its not the way he talks or the way he walks or the way he sneers or the way he cheers But its the way he tried and the way he lied and the war he wages on innocent lives

165


Free the World - Down Down Dubya So that's -- what -- there's some ideas. And the -- it's -my job is to like think beyond the immediate. (George W. Bush in Washington, D.C., Apr. 21, 2004) Listen George Dubya are u sure you should do this Why not leave the thinking to the people who go through this You lied to your people about the war on Iraq Now tell me who exactly are you trying to mock? You think that anyone still buys your wicked plans and schemes They're just trying to avoid becoming Targets at it seems America stands for liberty, for the pursuita happiness and for the unalieinalienable right of life. George W. Bush in Washington, D.C., Nov. 5, 2003) Yeah right You expect us to believe that? We cant let it go on we gotta find a way to stop this With this madman at the wheel, we will be lucky to survive this Cause anyone can see that this war is a disaster That's the best you can get, with Dubya as your master So its time for the world to stand up against this power Because its influence is growing by the hour Last statements by George W. Bush are original - Prime Time Press Conference #3, White House, Apr. 13, 2004 166
