Lyrics

When strangers are coming
They come to your house
They kill you all and say
We’re not guilty, not guilty
Where is your mind? Humanity cries
You think you are gods but everyone dies
Don’t swallow my soul
Our souls

Yaşlığıma toyalmadım
Men bu yerde yaşalmadım
Yaşlığıma toyalmadım
Men bu yerde yaşalmadım

We could build a future
Where people are free
To live and love
The happiest time, our time

Where is your heart? Humanity rise
You think you are gods but everyone dies
Don’t swallow my soul
Our souls

Yaşlığıma toyalmadım, ooh
Men bu yerde yaşalmadım
Yaşlığıma toyalmadım
Men bu yerde yaşalmadım

Yaşlığıma toyalmadım, oh, oh
Men bu yerde yaşalmadım
Yaşlığıma toyalmadım
Vatanıma toyalmadım

When strangers are coming
They come to your house
They kill you all and say
We’re not guilty, not guilty
Where is your mind? Humanity cries
You think you are gods but everyone dies
Don’t swallow my soul
Our souls

I couldn’t spend my youth there
Because you took away my peace
I couldn’t spend my youth there
Because you took away my peace

We could build a future
Where people are free
To live and love
The happiest time, our time

Where is your heart? Humanity rise
You think you are gods but everyone dies
Don’t swallow my soul
Our souls

I couldn’t spend my youth there, ooh
Because you took away my peace
I couldn’t spend my youth there
Because you took away my peace

I couldn’t spend my youth there, oh, oh
Because you took away my peace
I couldn’t spend my youth there
I couldn’t enjoy my motherland
