Lyrics

Not Enemies

-written by Stuart Hollinger-

Was inspired by the 7/8 - 8/26 clash in Gaza. Why?

All I’ve known since I was born

it’s a struggle to survive

Day after day violence continues

takes a lot of luck to stay alive

Bombs explode, screams of pain

smell of death, tears of sadness

No options, all or nothing

My future is I’m dead in a coffin

Chorus

Children, men, women, sisters and brothers

Why O Why do we continue to suffer

How long will it take us to see

we don’t need to be each others enemy

Back in time when we were neighbors

lived together side by side

We disagreed, but worked it out

We found solutions, no blood shed

Fast forward here and now

we live in fear breathing hate

Caught in the middle innocent people

pay the price with their lives

Chorus

Caught in the middle innocent people

pay the price with their lives

Chorus
