Lyrics in English:

DÜNYA

They destroyed her school and books,
Her bed covered in dust
Her eyes see it all

Memories won't fit into her tiny body
All the wounds have left holes in her heart
Carrying your brutality on her back
She keeps walking and walking

How will you explain all this to the children, without losing your mind?
It was only yesterday that you were reading stories, shameless

World, are you now turning on top of us,
Squashed underneath we can't breath
Justice hasn’t come with peace
Now will it come with bullet?
We wait in vain, who will die next, where

All the heros are on the streets
Who was the enemy?
We got stabbed on the back
When we thought we got the enemy
This is a game, we sense it all

How will you fit the future into this
Without painting it pitch black?
It was only yesterday that we were dreaming
Like sky is the limit

World, are you now turning on top of us,
Squashed underneath we can't breath
Justice hasn’t come with peace
Now will it come with bullet?
We wait in vain, who will die next, where

Was love not enough to make you keep turning
Lets keep suffering, is it never ending?
All the youthful trees are on the ground
Dont their cries shatter your heart?

Life sentence? Haven't we done our time yet?
All the sleepless nights, haven’t they tired you yet?
Look at those rivers, made of our tears
Havent they reached the ocean yet?
