La canzone fa riferimento all'assalto della nave Rachel Corrie, nave della Freedom Flottilla
There's a ship that I've been thinkin of
Rachel Corrie is her name
and she's taken on a special task
she's not pursuing Fame

she's trying to get to Gaza
with supplies they badly need
and I wish the ship's safe passage
and travel with Godspeed

say hello to the people of Gaza
they've been having a really hard time
the blockage made their lives a hell
it surely is a crime

and all those self righteous nations
have ignored their terrible plight
but Rachel corrie is on a way to help
doing what's absolutely right

with a cargo of wheelchairs medicine and cement
on the crew of really good folk
with only good will and intent
they respect all mankind whatever race or creed
under wished the ship's safe passage
nd travel with Godspeed

say hello to the people of Gaza
they've been having a really hard time
the blockage made their lives a hell
it surely is a crime

and all those self righteous nations
have ignored their terrible plight
but Rachel corrie is on a way to help
doing what's absolutely right

while I'm eating breakfast in Dublin
the Rachel is on my mind
one truly concerned for her safety
but just heard she's sailing blind

...the world is taking heed
and I wished the ship's safe passage
and travel with Godspeed

say hello to the people of Gaza
they've been having a really hard time
the blockage made their lives a hell
it surely is a crime

and all those self righteous nations
have ignored their terrible plight
but Rachel corrie is on a way to help
doing what's absolutely right

In international waters pirates seized without defense
... showing very little sense
they justify their actions citing scripture with great zeal
but with no regard for love thy neighbor
thou shalt not kill thou shalt not steal

say hello to the people of Gaza
they've been having a really hard time
the blockage made their lives a hell
it surely is a crime

and all those self righteous nations
have ignored their terrible plight
but Rachel corrie is on a way to help
doing what's absolutely right

The Pirates were spared some ...
by Rachel Correy's brood
and two crew who had planned this event
in detail they knew exactly what to do

the Pirates mighty firepower
designed to emphasize some point
but badly led by some Yahoo
again David slew the joint

say hello to the people of Gaza
they've been having a really hard time
the blockage made their lives a hell
it surely is a crime

and all those self righteous nations
have ignored their terrible plight
but Rachel corrie is on a way to help
doing what's absolutely right
but Rachel corrie is on a way to help
doing what's absolutely right
