Lyrics to “Long Live Palestine” by LOWKEY


Long Live Palestine (by Lowkey)

This is for Palestine, Ramallah, West Bank, Gaza,
This is for the child that is searching for an answer,
I wish I could take your tears and replace them with laughter,
Long live Palestine, Long live Gaza!!

While we listen to tunes, made by ignorant fools,
Israel blocked the UN from delivering food,
They’ll bring in the troops and you won’t even glimpse at the news,
They make money of the products that we are quick to consume,
It’s not simply a question of differing views,
Forget emotions, this is fact, what I spit is the truth,
Makes no difference if you’re a Christian or if you’re a Jew,
They are just people living in different conditions to you,
They still die when you bomb their schools, mosques and hospitals,
It is not because of rockets, please god can you stop it all,
I’m not related to the strangers on the TV,
But I relate because those faces could have been me,
Words can never ever explain the raw tragedy,
It’s not a war they’re just murdering more rapidly,
We are automatically supporting pure savagery,
Imagine how you’d feel if it was your family,

This is for Palestine, Ramallah, West Bank, Gaza,
This is for the child that is searching for an answer,
I wish I could take your tears and replace them with laughter,
Long live Palestine, Long live Gaza,

Palestine remains in my heart forever,
We stand for peace, in times of war we shan’t surrender,
Remember, it didn’t start in that dark December,
Every coin is a bullet, if you’re Mark’s and Spencer,
And when your sipping Coca-Cola,
That’s another pistol in the holster of a soulless soldier,
You say you know about the Zionist lobby,
But you put money in their pocket when you’re buying their coffee,
Talking about revolution, sitting in Starbucks,
The fact is that’s the type of thinking I can’t trust,
Let alone even start to respect,
Before you talk learn the meaning of that scarf on your neck,
Forget Nestle,
Obama promised Israel 30 billion over the next decade,
They’re trigger happy and they’re crazy,
Think about that when you’re putting Huggies nappies on your baby,

This is for Palestine, Ramallah, West Bank, Gaza,
This is for the child that is searching for an answer,
I wish I could take your tears and replace them with laughter,
Long live Palestine, Long live Gaza,

This is not just a war over stolen land,
Why do you think little boys are throwing stones at tanks?
We will never really know how many people are dead,
They drop bombs on little girls while they sleep in their beds,
Don’t get offended by facts, just try and listen,
Nothing is more anti-Semitic than Zionism,
So please don’t bring bad vibes when you speak to me,
I know there’s plenty of Rabbi’s that agree with me,
It’s your choice what you do with this message,
Don’t get it confused; I view this from a truly human perspective,
How many more resolutions have to be violated,
How many more children have to be annihilated
Israel is a terror state, there terrorists that terrorise,
I testify, my television televised them telling lies,
This is not a war, it is systematic genocide,
But whatever they try, Palestine will never die!!!

  1. I\’m usually not a big fan of rap music but I like, respect, admire the nerve of this kid who stands up for what he believes in. He has a great voice and awesome sound to go with his lyrics. Shame! What we need is more young bold folk like him.


    1. Looks like what you said is coming to fruition right now – Tunisia’s Tyrant ruler has fled and Mubaraq is about to go … they will topple one by one after years of Tyranny.. ALLAH HU AKBAR.

  3. if there are more people that accept hip hop and use it to express their feeling and sometimes a feeling of a whole race, as an arab i say long live palestine long live gaza freedom and peace for IRAQ too and rip ti all the brave souls that tried to fight back

  4. This poetic song represents all that is wrong with Israel and the United states of America and the United Kingdom. We must not like it for its rhythm of artist or popularity alone, but for its words and inspirational quotes. The worldwide community must join in unity to segregate Israel from the international community, just as Israel has segregated Palestinians from their home land.

    1. indeed it does and maximum respect to people such as lowkey. Look at how the people are now uprising .. first Tunisa and now Eqypt. This will continue across the whole of the Muslim world and we will see unjust rulers overthrown.. Insha Allah (God Willing)

    1. i don’t have any issues with your comment and i don’t think anybody will disapprove of what you wrote – after all it is the truth …thank you for your thoughts. However, if you still feel it should be removed then please let me know via e-mail to I’m so happy to meet non-muslims who also support this cause.. at the end of the day it doesn’t matter what religion you follow as we all follow the 1 true god (in different ways)…and we have to help mankind in anyway we can. regards, Khalid
