Days go by

And others join the cry of freedom

Even high school students are tired

Of being dictated to

They have arisen to demand their rights

The song of ‘baraye’ is being song everywhere

It has become an anthem of unity

For dancing in the street

For basic human rights

Because of being tired of covering their hair

For man, country, rebuilding

For woman, life and liberty

Because the status quo won’t do

Because of justice, long overdue

Because minorities have rights too

Because they’re tired of disunity 

Because of the power of this song

Because of the strength of unity

The dawn is near and they know it

And the sun will shine eventually
