“OH Rakyat” song by Zhi Wei

Found this on LoyarBurok (keep up the good work, LBs!!!)… 

It’s way way cool… the best song about Bersih, about People Power, about anak bangsa Malaysia ever…

Lee Zhi Wei… rrrrrespect!


Oh rakyat
dah lama terluka
rasa pahit simpan saja
kini bangkit bersuara
mencari erti merdeka

The past few weeks
some things have got me thinking
police keep arresting
but people keep on marching
with tear gassing, water cannons splashing
letting nobody tell’em what they better believe in
Now wait a minute, somebody cried politics
But I don’t get it, I can’t understand when it’s
men and women
our friends and our children
walkin for democracy walkin for freedom
So have a seat for my version of detention
let me break it down in a short spelling lesson
It’s not UM-NO or D-A-P
It’s all about the r-a-k-y-a-t


Now I know some of y’all on a different page than me
But we can disagree, do it respectfully
Dissent, decorum going hand-in-hand
I can make my point, you can take your stand
Cause in the end, we’re all in this together
All fighting the good fight, to make our country better
We got the same goals, we share the same future
Why we letting them make us go against each other?
Merdeka means freedom, it knows no colour

It names every neighbor a brother, a sister
That’s what I saw that day in our street choir
Mr Prime Minister, can you say 1Malaysia?


Yeah bangkit, bangkit say it if you feel it
if not, please, let me to put it in context
cause it ain’t about which side you’re on
Bersatulah! That’s the sine qua non
This not about protesting and rallying
this about just waking up and caring cause
this is Negaraku, who’s gonna care but you
No change is gonna come if you don’t pursue
That’s true, time to stop talking, and start doing and start becoming
the dream that we dream so that we can start living it
if you’re a Malaysian, you best be singing it
