Honored to share with you my latest participation in an International project called " MAARAKA 2" (The Battle Part 2). The song depicts the social and political modern day struggle, while providing the path to a better tomorrow through resistance and inspiring to build a fairer world.

Lyrics/ Translation

 

The song starts with a Sufi Spiritual Chant that will turn out to be the chorus of the song. “El Kataa”, the Sufi Singer, transcends us to a confrontation realm, where he calls out his agony to an ultimate “one winner” end “ Oh my dear agony, whether I end you or you end me so we can reach the peace of mind”. As the beat drops, “Malex” opens up the song with a melancholiac tainted first verse to reflect the fighting character in torment, as a Don Quixote… in modern era fight to stay just in a corrupted time. “Osloob”, the second MC, took us to the refugees tragedy settings to picture their state of distress and despair, while looking for a new home. With a change in the melodies, tone and beat, “Amine West” started the third verse. He paints a picture of resistance and rebirth in the image of the Phoenix to achieve liberation and justice. In the Last verse, “Amen BK” portrays the light within us all against the corrupt institutions in order to achieve “the better world”

 

(Intro-Chant)
Oh my dear agony, whether I end you or you end me so we can reach the peace of mind.

 

(1st Verse)
Denying to prove existence
In the life of an exile where the options
are to be stepped upon or ending up in a landfill
Wishes are there but no path to walk through
A resisting lover pissing on borders
“I am the beggar in the big picture
talking to the last drop of the bottle
with a destructed defeated soul”
Misguided justice and authority
Like Tilting at Don Quixote windmills
Unfair war until death will take him away
Lots of boredom and time will chain you, will paralyze you
will kill the unstable mind in this time of imposture
in a time where they sell hope
in a time where loyalty is the trait of the cheater
when he the cheater talks about his victims
he would say: “The others are hell, The others are heartless
May the Grim Reappear rape them”
He came up not like them
Never trash talk and he fought their joy
His pains were bitter so he stood up to destroy a corrupted society
They wanted him a machine, a hostage to their dream
He rose and rebelled with a rock in his hand
He was like a gun powder in a lightening storm
They wanted him to be brainwashed and tailored to their expectations
“With a chest up, I won’t drink from their cup
Enough of contempt and scorn” he said
Minority are the people like him
They hated his guts
He was a solitary soul never had company
He was cut from his root to be “an unclassified”
He doesn’t belong to any breed
He killed his lineage, he was like a spark
His mind was burned without oil
His body was ruined and soaking in tattoos
Breathing the stars dust 
He hated the cattle, he was misunderstood
Born in a corrupted world carrying tons of sorrow
“Against you I lead, riding the pegasus
Curing my anger from “Rdayef” to”El Khalil””
He will keep fighting the war of the will against the impossible.

 

(Chorus)
Oh my dear agony, whether I end you or you end me so we can reach the peace of mind

 

(2nd Verse)
Let me end you and have some peace of mind

Where are they coming, Where are they running away
Thrown in the sea in a half of a boat
while the waves are wild
People are running through the borders
There is no any sort of space
The boat is sinking with overweight
There is no any way out
The children are suffering the injuries and the youth are dyign from their open wounds
Dreams turned to nightmares
The police and military shoot to kill
I am holding the map in my hand and I don’t know where to go
Every path is locked and everybody is indifferent

(Chorus)
Oh my dear agony, whether I end you or you end me so we can reach the peace of mind

 

(3rd Verse)
If I had two hearts I would give the second to a dead mind
And If misery was a man I would drawn him in the Dead Sea 
Not even half a tree shall be grown in despair.
Thousands of myths and verses shall be be written in hope,
Even if completely destroyed as Latakia
I shall remain intact like Venice.
In love, peace and time of war
I am a Phoenix, flying outside the flock 
Eons shall not harm me like did to others.
Barefooted, I shall keep walking .
Towards victory, I am standing, head high
Carrying a burden, bleeding, but It’s fine.
For the one who desired roses, would bear the wounds of thorns
And who transcends a better day , won’t bear a minute of longing.
Remember that you will not be defeated as long as you resist
And remember that Rome was not built in one day.
You shall avoid who bargains and trades justice
Do not throw your towel even if you remain alone

 

(Chorus)
Oh my dear agony, whether I end you or you end me so we can reach the peace of mind

 

(4th Verse)
Set the view on Panorama

Night Blues,
Here I come with my moon and my muse
Here I come to paint my aurora
Burn humans Pandora’s box
Break with the orthodox
Build a future without Wall Street Stocks
Without virtues of the 1 percent
Without curfews a corrupt president
Corrupt judges, delegates
Corrupt religious hypocrites
Wanna see a world without extremist politicians
A justice without conditions, preach
Where is my freedom of speech
Where is my freedom of thinking without the government breach Leash,
impeach
The greed rules the people
We must break this vicious circle sequel
Night Blues,
Here I come with my moon and my muse
Light a new Dawn, eradicate Babylon and its fate
Ego and hate in a black hole then we elevate
Alternate to liberate what if we recreate
A new world without borders and human violations
Thorough peace among nations a gift to the coming generations
Cuz by submission to the evil we give it power
I am still going to be the light keeper in the darkest hour
Oh My Night Blues!
