#Syria Lyrics

By Omar Offendum, on SyrianamericanA (lyrics from: http://offendum.blogspot.com/2012/03/syria.html)
"alsha3b yureed isqaa6 al-nitham (the people want to overthrow the regime)"

Audio Sample taken from the largest Syrian protest to date (Hama - July 22, 2011)
Verse 1
The purpose of these verses is to unify the masses
7oms up to 7assakeh … Banyas to Damascus
City streets to countrysides
Mountaintops to coastal tides
Muslim / Christian / women / men & children
Lets keep hope alive
Stand in solidarity with all your fellow citizens
Peacefully protesting for an end to all the militance
Torture & imprisonment
Murdering of innocence
Proving that this lying/lion leader’s rule is illegitimate
Like father – like son
Mobster or president?
Censoring their people
Trying to stop the embezzlement
Heavy-handed iron fists
Dropped on the residents
Déjà vu
’82 – ’11…
We are all Deir Ezzor … We are all Dar3aa
We are all Jisr il-Shughoor … 7alab & the 2al3a’s (castles)
We Are All 7amza … We Are All 7ama …
We Are All Syrian … Hands to the samaa2 (sky) saying:
“alsha3b yureed isqaa6 al-nitham”
Verse 2
I have a dream this regime will fall
And that what comes next
Will be better for us all
Alawite – Druze – Armenian – Kurdish
Equality in Parliament
“Il-Kull ilo Kursee” (Everyone gets a seat / is represented)
Envisioning a future that’s brighter for the youth
Who’ve been fighting for the right
To shed light upon the truth
Biting bullets from the troops
Thus far a truce has proven elusive
But martyrs are tightening the noose
On corruption – Bribery – Nepotism
Tribal Disputes
Don’t shoot with your mechanism
Soon come the reckoning that looms
Second guessing the protesters
Was a recipe for Assad to address his own doom…
Its been a long time coming
And there’s no turning back now
Voices are the weapons
In these military crackdowns
Millions on the streets
In defiance of your gat sounds
Look who’s got you shook
Doctor don’t know how to act now…
“alsha3b yureed isqaa6 al-nithaam”
Verse 3
