May 8, 2013

SONGS OF WAR: The lyrics refer to the fighting, lack of bread, water. Since the beginning of the uprising, videos of children spouting words written by adults have been produced by both sides of the conflict for propaganda purposes. Here, she sings:

Our home is a heaven. [In our] beloved home, Bread at bakeries is delicious.
We don’t have electricity, we don’t even have water.
I went to al-Binchi Bakery,
A shell hit me in the stomach.
I went to al-Balaya Bakery,
shrapnel filled my body.
I went to the neighborhood of Sha’ar,
I stepped on your image Bashar.
