We won’t break or bend, they won’t tear us apart
But she was tricked by her faith in the future

She didn't look like Lenin or Marx,
She didn't look like children of war,
She didn't look like a rolling stone,
She do not like the mother's song.

In her silent scream
In her silent scream
In her silent scream

In her silent scream
In her silent scream
In her silent scream
