United for Neda

Publié le par Thulemin

             Un hommage à Neda, cette Iranienne dont la mort à été filmée sur un téléphone portable pendant les manifestations à Téhéran. Mams Taylor a réuni des artistes iraniens en exil et a écrit cette chanson. La vidéo a été tournée uniquement sur téléphones portables, puisque c'était le seul moyen accessible aux Iraniens pour témoigner de leur sort.

              La musique est magnifique, les paroles touchantes et les images fortes. Il y a deux - trois scènes choquantes donc les âmes sensibles peuvent s'abstenir. Pour les autres, c'est un must-see !



Les paroles

Yeah
Neda, be strong
This one goes out to you.
Keep your head held high.

VERSE 1
Lord another day goes by
And I pray that they all stay strong and try
To make it through the hate
All the pain and the lies
And make it through another day there without dying
Politicians controlling our minds
Why even voting for
If they’re making up our minds for us
Man, they must be thinkin that we’re blind
But they opened up our eyes for us

PRECHORUS
It’s about time that we stand up stand up
Gotta move the line
But they didn’t realize is they really just united us
Yeah, they use religion as disguise
But my god doesn’t divide
This is something they can’t hide from us

CHORUS
So we're not fighting for our rights
We're just fighting for what’s right
For global freedom but it’s like
Another day turns into night
And nothing’s changing
People dying
Flags are flying through it all
So united we stand
But divided we'll fall

VERSE 2
Damn another day goes by again
And it hurts cause all that I can do is grab this pad and pen
And hope that by writing it
It begins to open peoples eyes up to whats been happening all throughout the world
Guns firing, Neda bless her soul
Now it’s time to stand up and seize control
And I’m talkin to the human race as a whole

PRECHORUS
Time to stand up stand up
Gotta move the line
But they didn’t realize is they really just united us
Yeah, they use religion as disguise
But my god doesn’t divide
This is something they can’t hide from us.

CHORUS
So we're not fighting for our rights
We're just fighting for what’s right
For global freedom but it’s like
Another day turns into night
And nothing’s changing
People dying
Flags are flying through it all
So united we stand
But divided we'll fall

UNITED, WE'RE FREE...

BRIDGE
Can anybody hear us crying
Marching, not afraid of dying
Has anybody seen our freedom
Staying strong we're bound to find it
Can anybody hear us crying?
Marching, not afraid of dying
Has anybody seen our freedom
Just stay strong we're bound to find it

CHORUS
So we're not fighting for our rights
We're just fighting for what’s right
For global freedom but it’s like
Another day turns into night
And nothing’s changing
People dying
Flags are flying through it all
So united we stand
But divided we'll fall

So we're not fighting for our rights
We're just fighting for what’s right
For global freedom but it’s like
Another day turns into night
And nothing’s changing
People dying
Flags are flying through it all
So united we stand
But divided we'll fall

We're just fighting for what’s right
For global freedom but it’s like
Another day turns into night
And nothing’s changing
People dying
Flags are flying through it all
So united we stand
But divided we'll fall
