Come gather ’round me people and a story I will tell
’bout bein’ no more endangered by livin’ hell.
We don’t want to stay forever locked up and forgotten
in state-terror and its prisons, hateful and rotten.
We are thousands of protesters and we band together
for sweeping reforms and the way to the better.
We want the clan-government to resign.
Determined and undeterred we aren’t blind.
We call for equal rights and breakin’ of chains,
demand the willingness to quit or to change.
Future’s joy we bring and determination,
of society we are the renewing generation.
No tragedy we want but the end of lies.
Falsehood it is that lets protesters die.
We want to show the world a new way is open and that
determined and undeterred we all can unite.
The people are the life of a nation’s endeavor,
the driving force that can end all sorrow,
the sorrow caused by corruption, injustice and civil war.
The truth we need, the right and the vast.
The growing joy of peace and love’s intensity
will open our eyes to seeing who we are and what we need.
Victory, I say, begins in our soul:
Determined and undeterred she leads straight to the goal.
