About the song
Words, music and performance by Doc Jazz

A song I wrote in the memory of Marwa Al Sherbini - pregnant and mother of a 3 year old son - who was stabbed to death in a courtroom in Dresden, Germany, during a lawsuit against her muslim-hating neighbor who had been harrassing her.

As horrible as this already sounds, the story is even worse than this: not only was she stabbed to death with a knife in the presence of armed security guards, but in front of the eyes of her husband and her 3 year old son. Instead of protecting Marwa, the security guards shot and almost killed the husband, who was trying to protect his wife from the stabbing frenzy. The husband was hospitalized and was finally stabilized.

As unimaginable as this horrendous murder already may seem, this heinous crime was still made worse by one thing, namely the criminal silence of European mass media about this event.

It is this despicable silence that infuriates me even more, and drove me to write this song.

We will never forget the martyr Marwa, brutally murdered in a court room while fighting in a civilized and legal way against the hatred of the ignorant.
Lyrics
What can you do
When a neighbour's disrespecting you
Calling you names
Without any shame
And harrassing you

What can you do
When society turns its back on you
You done nothing wrong
Were just getting along
But there's no accepting you

Bridge:

How can it be wrong to defend your family
Who can expect you to ignore a felony
So down at the courtroom where justice should be served
How can this heinous crime be what that girl deserved?

Chorus:

Whatever they say, it wasn't just a tragedy
But a disaster bound to happen with the hate they breed
But we won't forget how brave you stood in dignity
Forever a symbol of our fight against the bigotry
We will remember you
Always remember you
Lady rest in peace in eternity

-

What can we say
When they fan the flames of hate on us
Treating us wrong
For so long
Is it not too late for us

What can we say
When the force of law aint safe for us
Shooting her man
trying to prevent
a crime so murderous
