about

This track tells the familiar and universally shared story about the inward struggle of a woman trying to discover her truth, her calling and her purpose without influence from the outside world. She's up against the world and the world around her is dictated by old world traditions which suffocate her spirit. She's relentless to silence the noise around her and listen for her inner voice. Her tireless digging of soil and clay with her bare hands signifies her dedication to discover her core truth, her light and her undeniable goodness to the world. No matter the doubt of others or those who try to dissuade her, she has become Safiyya in her fullest form.

lyrics

I know how i started
I know where I'm going
My tears remind me if i forget the bad i faced in my life is a black line
Poverty
Reality
My time that I’m wasting
Year after year
I’m waiting for a solution
Doors closed against one opened door
Even the eyes have colors i’m seeing black and white
Away from their lies i don t support humiliation
Handcuffed by chains, choked with a rope
I’m not a hypocrite that’s why they look at me like a stranger
They’re digging to bury me they fall in the the mud
Standing on top of the mountain
Screaming lonely
I will make it or i ll loose
Still trying to get to the limit line
I will revive the happiness i buried

They say it’s useless to start 

You’ll get carried away
You know you better than them 

Just keep it alive 

They say it’s senseless to start

You light down on this day 



How many real brothers became enemies
You try to do good they forget it
The ones i cared for they made my life like hell
They call you just the time they need you
Their silence will never be a solution
My voice will never reach the world
Thanks to God i have never accept humiliation
I have one face that will never change
You killed me with lies you re saying in my absence
I translated my life in two lines
When i will die you all will dance on my grave
I want nothing just keeping a good memory of me
Don’t be a product for selling and buying
Don’t let their words break you
Let them say what they want coz when you give up nobody will help you

They say it’s useless to start 

You’ll get carried away
You know you better than them 

Just keep it alive 

They say it’s senseless to start

You light down on this day
