lyrics

System Down ft. Ramey Dawoud // Lyrics

It seems you have mistaken our silence for weakness
We were just being patient like our elders & our teachers

Even though, even though, we have been the peaceful ones
You send your secret serpents to terrorize our town
But its our street
Its our home
Its our land
Its our blood
Its our time to rise above your crumbling ground
System Down, System Down
Our voice is found, System Down!

Well It seems the Nuba Mountains are echoing our voices
With desert chants, & the Nile's fury we must demand our own choices

Even though, even though, we have been the peaceful ones
You send your secret serpents to terrorize our town
But its our street
Its our home
Its our land
Its our blood
Its our time to rise above your crumbling ground
System Down, System Down
Our voice is found, System Down! x3
System Down, System Down Now

Al-Sha'b Youreed Isqat Al-nizam (The people want the order to fall)

Ramey Dawoud: ——-
Sudan, it's in my veins, this is the land
Of the mighty river Nile and the Sahara sand
No matter what you claim, Arab or African
We're all the same when it comes to this here plan

We must look back to the ancient civilization
Restore the dignity of this mighty nation
They will lose because the truth, they don't wanna face it
They wanna take our history and erase it

But we won't let them! No we won't let them!
We will fight back and oust out the system
Chant for "Isqat alnizam" (the order to fall) until it hits them
And to the ignorant, may God bless them

The fire has been lit and the revolution started
No looking back now never half hearted
Dearly departed, your memory is alive
Finally the people of Sudan rise!
——-

Even though, even though, we have been the peaceful ones
You send your secret serpents to terrorize our town
But its our street
Its our home
Its our land
Its our blood
Its our time to rise above your crumbling ground
System Down, System Down
Our voice is found, System Down!

Ya Oumdourman, System Down
Ya Imtidad, System Down
Ya Port Sudan, System Down
Ya Nas Khartoum (people of Khartoum), System Down

Even though, even though, we have been the peaceful ones
You send your secret serpents to terrorize our town
But its our street
Its our home
Its our land
Its our blood
Its our time to rise above your crumbling ground
System Down, System Down
Our voice is found, System Down!
