Story

Ali lost his limbs during the US invasion of Iraq. He was given artificial arms after humanitarian media pressure. However, we could never give him back his mother, or his father, to hug with those arms. Ali gets his limb, but he gets no one to run to.

Lyrics

Dediacted to Ali Abbas, who lost his arms in the Iraq war. He lost his parents too, and even if we give him artifial arms, we could never give him back his parents to hug with those arms. ALI GETS IS ARMS 3:44 Written and Produced by Wax (N. Ndifonka) /Guitar and percussions by Wax. / Synth bass and percussions by D. Abbott / Vocals by Wax/ Recorded at DA Studios by D. Abbott Verse 1: If the future had to speak its history Would it be only bleak? Wars, guns, genocide Can’t I rhyme this line with a smile? Politicians lying, a child is crying All he sees is guns and corpses God, give him a home, he’s all alone His mama’s gone, his papa’s gone To greed and hate and power chasing He don’t even have a say Help me sing Chorus: Sihelele, langua bato We don’t want no war, no war no more Sihelele langua bato Tell the politician, no war no more Verse 2: Here’s a story about a boy like yours born in a town like yours He wakes up one day to bombshells and death knells His family’s gone, his world is lost In oil chasing, war making He don’t even have a say Help me sing Chorus He don’t even have a say Let’s be his voice Ali gets his arms, But he don’t have no one to run to Ali gets his arms, He don’t have no mama to hug Said he don’t have no family, no no no no no How many people must die before we call it World War Three, World War Three, Stop the war, stop the war, no no no, Tell the politician, no war no more.
