Agit (Lament) lyrics:
Small black dots appear in the sky
They will soon spoil the delicate quiet
Maps with lines drawn lying on the table,
the price to be settled in blood
Children will wake up to the sounds of bombs
Buildings and streets will be one with the ground,
This may be the last time people will greet each other
The targets have been made known, one by one
Guns have turned their cold faces
Some lips will tell their fate
My hands are tied; all hands have turned towards the sky
Death is wearing her crown in front of us,
so our hearts will be united
If life is not a lie there must be a way.
When has innocence been a crime?
What are the consequences they must pay?
Without looking behind time passes by,
Shadows pass beneath the sunlight.
Will the lies finally come to an end?
There won’t be a later after this
Is death the only means to embrace freedom
There must be another way…
