about

© 1998 and 2001 by Eileen Hazel

I wrote this song in 1998 war in Iraq when the US was bombing Iraq, and updated the lyrics in 2001 after September 11 and the resulting war in Afghanistan. This is one of very few overtly political songs I've written, wondering if we are becoming what we fear. I love what Jami Sieber's cello added to this song!

lyrics

TERRORIST

In my dreams, the bombs are falling
and exploding in the air
I can hear the people calling
I can feel the naked terror

Do you believe peace can come from war somehow?
Tell me, who is the terrorist now?

In Iraq, people are dying
from starvation and disease
With our bombs and economic sanctions
We have brought them to their knees

Do you believe peace can come from war somehow?
Tell me, who is the terrorist now?

And in the media, it’s a sordid affair
It’s a circus of genocide, it’s a mockery of despair.

New York City last September
Was a tragedy indeed
Must we add to all the suffering?
Must we multiply the grief?

Do you believe peace can come from war somehow?
Tell me, who is the terrorist now?
Do you believe that peace can come?
Tell me who, oh tell me who
Tell me who are the terrorists now?
