Album: A Daring Escape from the Empire [2010]
A Daring Escape

Dedicated to the People, Gaza City was written the 2nd day of the Gaza War in late December 2008.. The melodic basis for the song was taken from Trash City by Joe Strummer.
In Gaza City on Party Avenue
They gotta bomb and it's dropping on you
In Gaza City on a transit line
Freedom on parole and it ain't looking fine (fine!)
In Gaza City on Party Avenue
They gotta bomb and it's coming at you
In Gaza City on a transit line
They put you on hold and it ain't looking fine..
Sing you a song it's the Holy Lands turn
Two thousand nine freedom fighters gonna burn
Garbage-Fundi-Men don't care for peace or rock n' roll
It's five o'clock in Rafah and this bomb's–about–to –blow
In Gaza City on Party Avenue
They gotta bomb and it's coming at you
In Gaza City on a transit line
They put you on hold and it ain't looking fine (fine!)
Halla got Falafel in a nightmare zone
Then got vandalized on her cheap cell phone
Crying to the people won't you leave me alone
They makin' war in graveyards on the peacemakers bones..
When they see your car at the Hammas mans House
It seems like a movie 'bout it ain't no cat and mouse
It's a living hell for all the kids on the ground.
The dead and dying souls and the stench is what they found..
Moneychangers Cash an stealing the loot
While you and me an the people get the boot
Bombs a dropping fast boom away they go
Christians, Jews and Moslems say: –Bingo! – Ringo! – Way to Go!

In Gaza City on Party Avenue
They gotta bomb and it's coming at you
In Gaza City on a transit line
They put you on hold and it ain't looking fine (fine!)
[x2]
Yusef ran for cover from this human crime
but the bombs keep dropping and he's got no time !
