عم بحكي بالسكوت عم بحكي بالسكوت

عم بحكي بالسكوت في عالم بتدعي انّي موت إنّي خطير كبير صوتي عالي ببيروت
عم بحكي بالسكوت في عالم بتدعي انّي موت إنّي خطير كبير صوتي عالي...

لأنو الصوت اللي بيطلع مني بدّو يكسّر حيطام
لأنّو زرعوا فيّي كره وهل كره بعدو عطشان
لأنّو من وراهن عشنا طفولة بدون طفولة
لأنّو خلقنا وكبرنا وربينا بين الفيولة
لأنّو القلم اللي بكتب في مرّس مثل السكينة
اللي عم بتشك الورقة البيضة مثل ما شكّوا فيّي
لأن المايكروفون تاعي دّو يكسّر البلاط
مش مثل مايكروفون المطرب اللي بحطّو تحت الباط
واذا ايام بتمصخر صدّقني عشان ما ابكي
تما انزل باشوارع بفّضل اكتب واحكي
لأن كل كلمة باكتبها مثل الرصاصة ببسقها
ودماغك ما بطيقها مفروض تحسسك بالذنب
لأن بتعرف الحقيقة مش مكتوبة بالمقال
لأنّو بحكي الصراحة الصراحة اللي ما بتنقال
لأنّو الحبر اللي بينزل منّي هو الدم تبع بيروت
فهمت ليه بحكي لوحدي فهمت ليه بحكي بالسكوت

عم بحكي بالسكوت في عالم بتدعي انّي موت

إنّي خطير كبير صوتي عالي ببيروت 
(x4)

عم بحكي بالسكوت في عالم بتدعي انّي موت إنّي خطير كبير صوتي عالي...

شوفني بس تأحكي معن عروف انّي ببسق السم
بس تيحوبو يئذوني حبري بيمزل مثل الدم
خلّيني وصّح الأمور وفسّرلك بشكل عام
انو بلعبتهم الوسخة ايه بحياتي ما بنضمّ
للسكوت ما في غيرن بيدعو انّي موت
لو انا ما كنت موجود قولّي ادّيه بتكون مبسوط
شباب الجيل الجديد ما عندن رأي مش مظبوت
انتو خلّيتوهم يضيَّعو صعّبتو عليهم الظروف
لأنّو بيحكو كتير بس كل حكين بلا طعمة
لأنّو من السفرة طلعلنا الفستق والقضامة
ما في نكلة بالجيبة بفتّش حتى تحت البطانة
الشعوب اللي جوعانة ما بتحكي بس بتعاني
لأنّو اللي معو يعيش عم بعيش بالأنانية
لأنّو الشعب مش متفّق مع انو ذات العقلية
كل يوم بجربو يسكتوني صرتو كتار عم تسمعوني
وبعدكم كلكن بتسألوني ليه

عم بحكي بالسكوت في عالم بتدعي انّي موت

إنّي خطير كبير صوتي عالي ببيروت 
(x8)


ريس بك من بيروت
بالسكوت بالسكوت بالسكوت بالسكوت بالسكوت بالسكوت
عم بحكي بالسكوت


I am talking in silence. I am talking in silence.

I am talking in silence. There are people who that pretend I am death and that I am very dangerous. My voice is loud (in Beirut).
(x2)

because the sound that goes out of me will break walls,
because they sowed hatred in me and this hatred is still thirsty,
because of them we lived a childhood without childhood,
because we were born and grew up and were raised among elephants,
because the pen I write with is sharp like the knife
that is stabbing the white paper like they doubted/stabbed me,
because my microphone will break the tiles
unlike the singer’s microphone that he puts under his arm.
And if I am cynical some days, believe me, it's to keep myself from crying
and to keep myself from going to the streets. I prefer to write and talk
because every word I write is like a bullet I spit
and your brain does not stand it. It should make you feel guilty
because you know that the truth is not written in the article
because I say the truth. The truth that cannot be uttered
because the ink that flows from me is Beirut’s blood.
Do you understand why I talk by myself? Do you understand why I talk in silence?

I am talking in silence. There are people who that pretend I am death
 and that I am very dangerous. My voice is loud (in Beirut).
(x4)

Watch me only while I talk to them. Know that I spit poison
when they try to hurt me. My ink seeps like blood.
Let me make things clearer for you and explain to you in a general way
that in their dirty game, I would never join
the silence. Only they allege that I am death.
If I did not exist, tell me how happy would you be.
Youth of the new generation have no judgment?
This is not true. You made them confused, you made the situation hard for them
because they talk too much, but all their talk is meaningless
because from the dining table we got peanuts and chickpeas.
There is not a penny in my pocket - I even search under the lining!
Starving nations do not talk but they suffer
because those who have money are living selfishly
because the people do not agree. Despite the similar mentality,
they try to shut me up every day. Now you are many listening to me
and still you all ask me: "why?"

I am talking in silence. There are people who that pretend I am death
 and that I am very dangerous. My voice is loud (in Beirut).
(x8)

Rayess Bek from Beirut!

In silence. In silence. In silence. In silence. In silence. In silence.
