K’naan – Wavin’ Flag

K’naan – Wavin’ Flag

Born to a throne
Stronger than rome
But violent prone
Poor people zone
But it’s my home
All I have known
Where I got grown
Streets we would roam

Out of the darkness
I came the farthest
Among the hardest (survival)
Learn form these streets
It can be bleek
Accept no defeat
Surrender, retreat

(So we strugglin’)
Fighting to eat
(And we wonderin’)
When we’ll be free
So we patiently wait
For that faithful day
It’s not far away
But for now we say

When I get older
I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom
Just like a waving flag

Ahhho ahhho ahhho
wo wah wo ah wo ah
ahhhooo ahhhoooo ahhhooo
wo wah wo ah wo ah
ahhhooo ahhhoooo ahhhooo

Give me freedom give me fire
give me reason take me higher
see the champions take the field now
You define us make us feel proud
in the streets are exaliftin’
every loser inhibtion
celebration is around us
every nation all around us

singing for ever young
singing songs underneath that sun
let’s rejoice in the beautiful game
and together at the end of the day

We all say:
When I get older
I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom
Just like a waving flag
(And then it goes back x3)

When I get older
I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom
Just like a waving flag
(And then it goes back x3)

wo wah wo ah wo ah
ahhhooo ahhhoooo ahhhooo

Give you freedom
give you fire
give you reason
take you higher
see the champions
take the field now
You define us
make us still proud
in the streets are exaliftin’
every loser inhibtion
celebration is around us
every nation all around us

singing for ever young
singing songs underneath that sun
let’s rejoice in the beautiful game
and together at the end of the day

We all say:
When I get older
I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom
Just like a waving flag
(And then it goes back x3)

When I get older
I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom
Just like a waving flag
(And then it goes back x3)

wo wah wo ah wo ah
ahhhooo ahhhoooo ahhhooo
wo wah wo ah wo ah
ahhhooo ahhhoooo ahhhooo

wo wah wo ah wo ah
ahhhooo ahhhoooo ahhhooo

So many wars,
settling scores
Bringin’ us promises
leaving us poor
I heard them say
love is the way
Love is the answer
that’s what they say

But look how they treat us
Make us believers
We fight there battes
Then they deceive us
Try to control us
They couldn’t hold us
Cause we just move forward
Just like buffalo soldiers
(But we strugglin)
Fighting to eat
(And we wonderingg)
When we’ll be free
So we patiently wait
For that faithfully day
It’s not far away

But for now we say
When I get older
I will be stronger
They’ll call me freedom
Just like a wavin’ flag
(And then it goes back (3x)

We are all the sum of our tears

“We are all the sum of our tears. Too little and the ground is not fertile, and nothing can grow there. Too much, the best of us is washed away. My rains have come and gone… for now. Yours are… just beginning.”
– G’Kar, Babylon5 S5E20: Objects in Motion

Hope

“It is said that the future is always born in pain. The history of war is the history of pain. If we are wise, what is born of that pain matures into the promise of a better world, because we learn that we can no longer afford the mistakes of the past.”
– G’Kar, In the Beginning

Gaza: We will not go down

Como ya contara Mxyzptlk en “La Gaza leve” hace unos días. Ahora nos ha llegado el turno a nosotros. Tarde, como siempre, y sólo por imitación de otros, también como siempre. Pero por lo menos se ha gritado, cosa que no me esperaba en esta ciudad.

Como siempre habrá opiniones para todos los gustos.

Pero tengo claro que quien admite otras opiniones está más cerca de llegar a conocer la verdad que quien no admite otros puntos de vista. [ + info ]
