about

I don't even know if this will still be relevant by the time you hear it but I had to release it anyway. Like many people around the world I've been watching the events in Egypt on the news. The people are calling for the end of a dictatorship and the birth of a new age of democracy.

I'm no expert on the situation in any way, and I certainly can't claim to understand how it is on the ground. The spectre of damage to the Middle East peace process and a new dangerous Islamic state are constantly brought up on TV. Looking at the faces of the people and hearing their voices though, I remain optimistic and I know they just want the same freedom I am lucky to enjoy.

This was recorded with 1 mic, 1 guitar and done live. No gimmicks.

lyrics

There's trouble down in Egypt, people on the streets,
Blood runs down the pavement in the name of the regime.
You know they'll take a mile, if you give them just an inch,
We're all in this together and there can be retreat.

(Chorus)
Fight On, Fight On,
Fight On, Fight On,
Until Freedom Is Won.

All they talk about on telly is the rising price of oil,
Holidays in tatters, and day to day football.
Meanwhile back in Cairo the people face down tanks,
Shot at by police man, who claim to be their friends.

(Chorus)
