Lyrics:
It’s my city, my concrete
since the day I was born it’s been under my feet
under my skin, inside of my head
put my picture on the sidewalk
the day that I’m dead
Pour out some liquor, now break some bread
for the streets, people have bled
Pour out some liquor, now break some bread
for the streets, people have bled
Rise up my People, rise up, rise up my people x 3
It’s your city, your concrete
so shape the world that is under your feet
all messed up, yet tidy and neat
filled with love and controversy
stories of life, they’re carved in stone
you might not see us but you’re never alone
stories of life, they’re carved in stone
you might not see us but you’re never alone
Rise up my People, rise up, rise up my people x 3
Cause it’s our city, our concrete
silky soft, yet rugged and beaten
Urban jungle, sweet and sour
within the people you find the power
you find the light,
in the jungle you will learn to fight
you might fall, but not tonight
It’s all about the balance, left and right
If you agitate the snake, the snake will bite
So rise up my people. Rise up, rise up my people x 3

This Love (Chelsea-Lyne ft. Nabil & Karim)

Original video compilation set to the lyrics of the song titled “The Day Has Come” by Ahou

I wrote this piece soon after the June 2009 “elections”, in solidarity with the courageous dissidents who have challenged the regime and continue to brave the streets at every occasion to demand their basic human rights. This song is aimed at providing renewed hope and optimism with a message of strong support and solidarity with these peaceful freedom fighters—letting them know that they are not alone in this perilous journey.

This piece relates to human rights in pointing out the brutal reaction of the Islamic Republic to protesters who peacefully demanded their basic human freedoms, including the right to free and fair elections. It also honors those who have been tragically killed in their efforts to alter the course of Iran’s 32-year struggle to end gross human rights violations and inequality for women and minorities.

Lastly, it is a call for unity among the Iranian diaspora to put aside political ideologies and join with the international community and world governments to mirror the brave dissident’s call for human rights, freedom, and democracy in Iran.
