Natacha Atlas adapts ‘Egypt: Rise to Freedom’

February 19, 2011

Our favourite Arabic language singer, Natacha Atlas, has reworked a song from her 2010 album Mounqaliba in response to the amazing events in Egypt.

Lyrics

Mubarak: ‘My fellow citizens..A fine line lies between freedom…and chaos.’

Natacha:

Let us stand together and awaken,
Let us question, learn and study;
Listen, understand and think.
Let us understand,
Permit us to know-
Permit us to know freedom.
Let us know there is a land
where words are the purveyors of truth,
heads are held high,
And human will is regarded above all.
Where the world is not split into a thousand fragments,
Under siege, forgotten, or lost –
Let us perceive of it,
Let us know that place.
Let us know our land,
where words are the purveyors of truth.

Mubarak: ‘My fellow citizens..A fine line lies between freedom…and -‘

Crowds: ‘MAY HOSNI MUBARAK FALL !!’
