about

Mirrors

Peace a piece of paper signed
No longer signed in blood
Targeted political Assassinations
A US led standard
Negotiations fabrications
Stabbed in the back again
Another truce broken glass shatters
A fragile trust now dead

Another day in Gaza City
Surrounded by these walls
Nowhere to run
No where to hide
When the rockets fall

Arrows falling from the sky
As the sirens cry
Race for the shelter or run outside
The children asking why
Lies coming from all sides
As the accusations fly
From our leaders, no love no respect
The people's peace denied
The people's peace denied

Another day in Gaza City
Surrounded by these walls
Nowhere to run
No where to hide
When the rockets fall
Their daily life is no life at all
A people under siege
The settlements, the checkpoints
Freedom at gunpoint
Until you bleed

Western leaders stand in line
Arms open wide
Arms for fighting not for embracing
Clearly the wrong side

People protest around the world
See through this veiled disguise
We want peace and we want it now
No more alibis
No more Children have to die

Another day in Tel Aviv
Trapped behind this wall
No where to run no where to hide
And the rockets fall

Another day in Tel Aviv
Trapped behind the same walls
Mirror on the wall
When will you fall, When will you fall

Noted for his passionate performances and rugged vocal style, Elie’s music is writerly, invigorating and, perhaps most important of all, utterly compelling whilst challenging the listener with its message.
