Track Name: Saleh Al-Durazi - "The Army Kills Its People" (Bahrain)
ثورة البحرين : ندعوا بـسلمِ ومحبه .. وجيشنا يقتلُ شعبه
With victorious tears I read
The chapters of this massacre
Hear me, o world
Of people who are kind I sing,
A people who would live in peace
But one that would never yield

One who longs to dream of hope,
Who stands unarmed in cannon smoke,
Hear me oh world
Heading toward our destiny
The will to set our people free
We bow only to god

A proud people
With peace as its battlefield
Drawing our strength while we gather now as one
Justice has called us to this pearl revolution
And if we must die, it is for justice to be done

Honor the blood
Spilled in the name
Of the good
Praise to the blood
Spilled for the people’s pride [x2]

And to all of those who sacrificed
We hail to you a thousand times [x2]

A thousand times over

Rightful and just
Rightful and just
Our demands
Answered with cold
Bullets and blood-
Shed [x2]

We call in peace and in love
While our own army turns to murder us [x2]

Systematic massacres
are always the tools of these
Violent regimes
Oppressive governments
Stamping out the people’s hope
Justice is never near

Broken hearts bear flags of peace
Messages so true and sweet
Hear me o world
I dream to do my homeland proud
And yet to work in peace is called
Lowly treachery

The fiends attack in the dead of night
While the people of Bahrain peacefully sleep
Killing the old and slaughtering the young ones
We awake to the people’s blood running in the streets

Tomorrow has
Been torn away
By their crimes
An army of
Mercenaries [x2]

The appalling face of the regime
Is now bared today for all to see [x2]

For all to see

Rightful and just
rightful and just
Our demands
Answered with cold
Bullets and blood-
Shed [x2]

We call in peace and in love
While our own army turns to murder us [x2]

Treachery and fire betray
The false condolences you pay
We know your hand
Then you mourn pretentiously
Thinking that we would not see
Lord hear my cry

You who do not share our faith
We ask for peace to make our way
To our destiny
But war and mayhem in the night
Have come to those who cannot fight
O for shame!

You summon killers, condemning us to loss
Our army works against the peaceful people of Bahrain
Heartlessly killing, and coweringly wasting,
Our people are dying by your money and your tanks

Witness, o world
Hear what has be-
Come of us
Supplanted by
Gross authority [x2]

Waging war on those who ask for peace
Yet injustice surely soon will cease [x2]

Will come to an end soon

Rightful and just
Rightful and just
Our demands
Answered with cold
Bullets and blood-
Shed [x2]

We call in peace and in love
While our own army turns to murder us [x2]
Track Name: The Boom - "Shima Uta" (Okinawa, Japan)
Deigo - The Flowers That We Held
Distant Winds Will Breathe And Sigh Beneath The Clouds

Deigo - The Flowers That We Lost
Distant Winds Are Calling Up A Distant Storm

I Embrace All My Sorrow Deep Within
Like The Waves Roll Across The Ocean Shore

Uuji Where We First Met
In A Forest Green And Gold
Now I Stand Beneath The Tree
Where I Cried My Last Farewell

Shima Uta My Island Ride The Wind
Together Fly Like Birds
Across The Ocean Waves

Shima Uta My Island Ride The Wind
Deliver All My Tears Across The Ocean Waves

Deigo - The Flowers Gently Sway
Gently Fall As They Ripple In The Breeze

Time Goes By And My Dream Of Happiness
Drifts Away Petals Floating On The Sea

Uuji Where I Would Sing
Close Together With My Friend
Now I Stand Beneath The Tree
Where I Cried My Last Farewell

Shima Uta My Island Ride The Wind
Together Fly Like Birds
Across The Ocean Waves

Shima Uta My Island Ride The Wind
Deliver All My Love Across The Ocean Waves

To the sea, the universe, the god, and to life
Please let the evening calm remain forever.

Shima Uta My Island Ride The Wind
Together Fly Like Birds
Across The Ocean Waves

Shima Uta My Island Ride The Wind
Deliver All My Tears Across The Ocean Waves
Track Name: Red Flag
It waved above our infant might,
When all ahead seemed dark as night;
It witnessed many a deed and vow,
We must not change its colour now.

Then raise the scarlet standard high.
Within its shade we'll live and die,
Though cowards flinch and traitors sneer,
We'll keep the red flag flying here.

It well recalls the triumphs past,
It gives the hope of peace at last;
The banner bright, the symbol plain,
Of human right and human gain.

Then raise the scarlet standard high.
Within its shade we'll live and die,
Though cowards flinch and traitors sneer,
We'll keep the red flag flying here.

With heads uncovered swear we all
To bear it onward till we fall;
Come dungeons dark or gallows grim,
This song shall be our parting hymn.

Then raise the scarlet standard high.
Within its shade we'll live and die,
Though cowards flinch and traitors sneer,
We'll keep the red flag flying here.
