Forgive me, my country

we had to forget

bury our history

bury it with the dead


On this pantheon

lies the fight

the honor is gone

take it with our right


Perform the burial

we’ll conquer the streets

a hero in memorial

hear our weeps


six feet under

justice decays

who will remember

that historical day


released from chains

“democracy”, we cried

freedom from the reigns

liberty untied


yellow ribbons burned

passion turns to dust

the fight overturned

neglect what’s just


forgive me, dear victims

we had to forget

we lost to him

we lost your fight
