Podigni glas Od samog prvog daha, svi smo mi ovde gosti, na vazduhu i vodi planeta život rodi otkud glad i rat, pogodi. Ona je ovde bila otkad postoji vreme, ali pod ovom vatrom njene su usne neme sat otkucava poslednji čas! Podigni glas, u ime nas koji zajedno budućnost živimo podigni glas, uradi to jer sutra već sve biće prekasno. (Raise your voice and make a choice). Da li si čuo vetar i tužnu pesmu mora, video kako gori hiljadu zelengora svet pred očima nestaće nam. Podigni glas, u ime nas koji zajedno budućnost živimo podigni glas, uradi to jer sutra već sve biće prekasno Zemlja je jedini dom za sve nas… Podigni glas… Now raise your voice and make a choice Earth is hurting now and that’s our only home Now raise your voice and make some noise time is running out the future can not hold. Podigni glas, uradi to, jer sutra već!
Raise your voice From the very first breath We are all guests on this planet, From air and water She yielded life So, where do the hunger and wars come from? Guess! She' s been here from the beginning of time But under this fire her lips are sealed The clock is ticking its final hour Ref: Raise your voice, for all of us, Who are living the future together, Raise your voice, do it, Because tomorrow might be too late. (Raise your voice and make a choice) Do you hear the wind, the sorrowful song of the sea? Have you seen eternal forests go up in flames? World is disappearing before our eyes. Ref: Raise your voice, for all of us, Who are living the future together, Raise your voice, do it, Because tomorrow is going to be too late. Earth is the only home we have.… Raise your voice! Now raise your voice and make a choice Earth is hurting now and that’s our only home Now raise your voice and make some noise time is running out the future can not hold. Raise your voice, do it, Because tomorrow...
