Freedom Flotilla / Ozgurluk Gemileri

One day I was playing with my doll
A man broke our door
Killed my father and raped my mother
I was playing with my doll
Dragged me out of my bedroom
Locked me in the basement
Burned my doll in front of my eyes!
Gave me water but no food

My sister was outside on her scooter
Saw what happened through the window
She was outside on her scooter
Hiding behind the bushes watching
Terrified but she was my sister
When the man left the basement
She came down with her scooter

Take my scooter she said
I can't bring your doll's ashes
I was proud of her bravery
I will come again with food she said
Wish I could take you out of here

Then the man showed up
Beat up my sister in front of my eyes!
And broke her scooter too
Mummy! Where are you?
Mummy have you got no voice anymore?
Mummy who will protect me now?
I turn to You Oh My Lord! Show your Mercy now!

Bebegimle oynuyordum bir gun
Derken o adam kirdi kapimizi
Oldurdu babami ve kirletti annemi
Bebegimle oynuyordum ben
Odamdan surukledi beni
Bodruma kilitledi
Bebegimi yakti gozumun onunde!
Su verdi ama yemek yoktu

Ablam mobiletiyle oynuyordu disarda
Pencereden gordu olup biteni
Mobiletiyle oynuyordu disarda
Calilarin arasindan izliyordu
Odu patlamisti ama ablamdi
Adam bodrumdan cikinca
Mobiletiyle indi asagiya

Al dedi oyuncagimi
Bebeginin kullerini getiremem sana
Cesaretiyle gurur duydum onun
Yemekle donecegim dedi bana
Keske seni buradan cikarabilseydim

Sonra o adam geldi yine
Dovdu ablami gozlerimin onunde!
Kirdi mobiletini de
Annecim! Nerdesin?
Annecim ne oldu sesine, cikmaz mi artik?
Annecim kim koruyacak simdi beni?
Sana yalvariyorum Ey Rab! Goster simdi Rahmet'ini!
