lyrics

An ordinary day,
The walls have ears, they’ll set you up
They came and took my dad away.
Never heard from him,
Your acquaintances hired, your friends are wired
Only memories pale and dim.

It took me so much time to realize what was going on,
I was just a child who never left his home.
And as the years went by I never learnt how to carry on,
It was hard for me to accept that I’ll have to deal with all the hard times on my own.

An ordinary day,
The phones have bugs, they’ll beat you up
They came and took my mom away.
We didn't say goodbye,
But deep inside I know - she's watching over me.

And one day I realized - as I saw his portrait,
The tyrant’s will - can’t be compromized,
And even after he is gone - his system will remain,
And another tyrant - will come and take his place.

An ordinary day,
They’re on the hunt and you’re the prey
They came by surprise and took my sea away,
Instead the sea of gold,
Marked the enemy of the state
Only dunes of steaming desert sand.

No longer a child, but in the end I did comprehend,
Am I destined to spend the rest of my days in this barren land?
I’m better off than to succumb to the will of the one,
Like hermit I’ll survive, I’ll hide my face from the sun!

So I ran away from my life, running for my life,
Shared last piece of bread, tasted every fugitive’s strife,
Nothing to lose, for I have no possessions,
Left short for words and deaf for questions,
Nothing to cling to…but memory, only memory.

Until we meet again…
