Proofreading requested
English translation

Oh my night

[Refrain : Hammouda]
Oh my night
I want to complain to mom
they said no , no
You are a child and your heart is heavy
I want to fly , fly so high
but They want to cut my wings off
I'm your son , I'm suffocated
and I beg your pardon
 
[Part 1 : Balti]
The neighbour are all stuck...knock,knock,knock
They all see the life dark
a dry desert (dry desert),knock,knock,knock
to see the life sweeter
and The neighbour are all waiting...knock,knock,knock
Waiting for the bee's honey
The board is dark (the board is dark)
The stream throwed us away from the road
yeah , lost in walls and I didn't find a place
in the country of burglars
mom,they forced me to keep silent
bowing to burglars and chairs hitting the floor (violence)
yeah , I want to take to the road and leave such sights behind
to take myself away from here , mom
I don't want to live this life with death (to have a miserable life)
To end addicted to drugs like my neighbour's son
 
[Refrain : Hammouda]
Oh my night
I want to complain to mom
they said no , no
You are a child and your heart is heavy
I want to fly , fly so high
but They want to cut my wings off
I'm your son , I'm suffocated
and I beg your pardon
 
Men's heads are down
Fallen down thinking and minds are strung out
neighbour's sons are sleeping devils
Evil in their eyes and they don't wish any good
They want to drive us , like animals
chained and unable to move
They want you to be orphaned , without a family
We're living in a system ruled by thieves
They want you to be high , out of existence
Not claiming your rights
Grateful for what they want to give you , mom
-----
What made all neighbours guys escaped from country's borders
Chained in your cage
and the fox is walking free and ate your diner as well
They want you standing in the street corner
watching your future passing by
 
[Refrain : Hammouda]
Oh my night
I want to complain to mom
they said no , no
You are a child and your heart is heavy
I want to fly , fly so high
but They want to cut my wings off
I'm your son , I'm suffocated
and I beg your pardon
