Egypt – A new world order

From the land of sphinxes and pyramids
A million voices rise
Breaking the shackles of bondage,
Stifled voices and  suppressed anger

The veil of ignorance is lifted
A spirited,young, savvy populace
Can no more be fooled
Into subservience

Broken wings and gagged mouths
Empty speeches and hollow promises
People seething in pain
Against years of slavery

The crowds gather at Tahrir
United to the core
Fuelled by a common purpose
Of overthrowing a despot

Bullet shots pierce through the night
Another innocent bystander falls
Truth and freedom will win the fight
Against a merciless ruler

Tanks and guns cannot silence
The brave Egyptian spirit
The cries for freedom proclaim
A new world order
