Inspired by the death of Neda Agha-Soltan in 2009.


You can try and rewrite history
You won’t take
the writing
from the wall
You can try
fake my story
You won’t heed the siren of my call
See the crescent bleeding
Fading in the sky
Hear the sound of a violin reeling
Singing as I die You can break my bones
Blind my eyes
Fill my dreams with your dark lullaby
You can break my heart
Take my life Take my soul but you’ll never
Take me down
Take me out
I feel the bullet Burn
right through me
Frozen in the fire of my eyes
This is the pain that will bind my memory
In memory I fly
We’re rising, dying
but the spirit never drowns
So many souls
will be lost
to darkness
Forever will be now
I will face your guns
Face your lies
Stare you down
Bear it out Leda
