You Will Not Defeat The People





Johnny's Song for Neda
Original File published by Johnny Maudlin (Johnny99) Supporting A girl called Neda died on the streets of Tehran this weekend.

If John Kennedy was alive today he would say, "I am an Iranian!" A woman called Neda died on the streets of Tehran this weekend. This is the real cost of freedom. This is not something many of us understand, I don't think. I have not felt this moved in my memory. Long live Neda!

NEDA
(You Will Not Defeat The People!)


Neda was a young girl
She would not wear the hijab
She walked out on the streets of Tehran
To join the madding crowd

She felt a burning fire in her chest
And her blood began to flow
You will not defeat the people
When their lust for freedom grows

Down down go the concrete statues
Watch the faceless soldiers run
You will not defeat the people
With the bullets from your guns

Neda was a young girl
Her eyes were black as coal
She walked out on to the streets of Tehran
To take back some control

Watch her father with her face in his hands
Scream her name out to the sky
You will not defeat the people
When they learn that they can fly
