lyrics

(English translation follows)
Σούρια
(στίχοι+μουσική: Α. Αντωνίου)

Χρώματα, σώματα χάθηκαν τ' αρώματα, που μύριζαν μες τις γειτονιές
Στόματα, παπλώματα σε βρεγμένα δώματα, σ' ένα πιάτο δέκα πιρουνιές
Κοριτσάκι δύστυχο στα τσιμέντα νηστικό το φιλί το χάδι λησμονεί
Ποιος θεός το άφησε; Ποια κατάρα ράγισε της ματιάς του τ' άδολο γυαλί;

Τρέλανε, πέθανε, στα βαρέλια ζέστανε το κορμί, το κίτρινο πετσί
Χάλασε, στράβωσε, το μαγκάλι μάγκωσε και η στέγη έμεινε μισή
Μην κουνιέσαι μην μιλάς, τ' αρκουδάκι μη φιλάς, κάποιος στόχο ψάχνει να ριχτεί
Τρομαγμένες αγκαλιές, τεντωμένες προσευχές κανενός δεν φτάνουν το αυτί

----------

Syria
(lyrics+music: A. Antoniou)

Colours, bodies, the scents that travelled through the neighbourhoods are gone
Mouths, mattresses on wet terraces, ten forks in one plate
Little girl wretched, hungry on the concrete, she is longing for a kiss, a caress
Which god abandoned her? Which curse has broken her sight’s unadulterated glass?

Go mad, die, warm up the body, the yellow skin, against the barrels
It went bad, it went crooked, the lever got stuck, and the roof is left half
Don’t move, don’t talk, don’t kiss the teddy bear, someone is looking for a target
Terrified embraces, tense prayers, they reach nobody’s ears
