Comentários de Steve Hogarth, vocalista/letrista codinomeado “h”, sobre a faixa “Gaza” no encarte de “Sounds That Can’t Be Made” (2012):

This is a song for the people – especially the children – of Gaza. It was written after many conversations with ordinary Palestinians living in the refugee camps of Gaza and the West Bank. I spoke also to Israelis, to N.G.O workers, to a diplomat unoficially working in Jerusalem, and took their perspectives into account whilist writing the lyric.
It’s not my/our intention to smear the Jewish Faith or people – we know how many Jews are deeply critical of the current situation – and nothing here is intended to show sympapthy for acts of violence, whatever the motivation, but simply to ponder upon where desperation inevitably leads.

Many Gazan children are now the grandchildren of Palestinians BORN in the refugee camps – so called ‘temporary’ shelters. Temporary for over 50 years now…
Gaza is today, effectively, a city imprisoned without trial. We ask you to add your voice to those already campaigning and lobbying for a peaceful and urgent resolution to this desperately unfair situation.

Please check out the ‘Hoping’ foundation ( which provides facilities and materials for Palestinian children enabling them to play, to learn, and to express themselves though art, music, and the performing arts.

Help if you can. To dream, might not after all, just a dream.
