all my brothers have disappeared
the streets are empty, the streetlights are out
no reasons in sight, nor heard
suddenly my life has no meaning, no goal

escaping to America
to start a new life there
after leaving my motherland
I am an outcast everywhere
an alien

no one knows what is happening
with the country or with me...
oh, what are we getting into?
and after some years who will remember
who was right and who betrayed?
and besides, I won't be around...
(Based on a true story)
