Hello dudes, last time I said I'd have posted the all album of the author whom I posted a song. That was my intention, but many things happened and are happening here in Italy and all over the world; I guess that is why few days ago while I was listening to this song I thought this rap was nearer to my current feelings. I hope you enjoy it and that you can see the irony and sarcasm in it … it is a rap, actually a weird one here's the link .underneath the translation. Your comments will be welcome

MY ENEMY HAS NO UNIFORM by D. Silvestri

Until you are on time fire

but don't aim wrong

probably the target you see

is just an illusion of whom from behind hopes

you try again

'cause at the end of the day thye only need an excuse

the dud is it's always someone else paying

and there's someone investigating

to root out the curse

but then who knows why whatever it happens

far in the palace none turns a hair

a head it's needed to fall and then who cares

the first dickhead you find on the road

a head it's needed to fall and then who cares

the first dickhead you find on the road

if you are on time fire

but don't aim wrong

probaly the target you see

is just an illusion of whom from behind swears

to have a pure conscience

but under that paint there are squalid walls

there's a dictatorship but you don't know where it is

you can't see it from here you can't see it from here

there's a dictatorship but you don't know where it is

you can't see it from here you can't see it from here

My enemy has no uniform

they love weapons but don't use them

into their case they keep visa cards

and when they kill they don't apologise (2)

and if you don't have moral

and if you have passion

if no doubt assails you

because the only reason you are interested in

is the company name

especially if you have some damned war to make

don't make it in my name

don't make it in my name

for you never asked for my consent

if you'll “defend” yourself

don't make it my name

don't make it in my name

for you never asked my opinion

until you are on time fire

(shoot Peter shoot him now)

but don't aim wrong

(shoot Peter shoot him now)

My enemy has no uniform

they love weapons but don't use them

into their case they keep visa cards

and when they kill they don't apologise (2)

My enemy has no name

not even religion

and power doesn't wear them out

power doesn't wear them out

my enemy resembles me

they are like me

they love their family

that is why they take more than they give

and they won't go wrong

but if they will someone else will pay

and the power doesn't wear them out

power doesn't wear them out.

 

*in this rap there's a reference to another song (La guerra di Piero, Peter's war) by the author who wrote the song I posted last time.

  • Hi vivi,

    This is just amazing wrting, a very powerful poem.

    Well,the question we should ask ourselves is ,do we know our enemies? You might believe that you know them ,because most of people hate you try to cause as much harm to you as possible.But instead,they might try to back stab to you while acting as if they love you.So,how to deal with your enemy? I totally agree with Anderson, we fight our enemies rationally.

    They say: Loving those who threaten and intimidate us remains formidable challenge,do you agree?

    Thanks vivi :-*

  • Bravo! That's why I love rap songs, it says much in few lines. We could right an entire book with each verse. Just like a poetry, and that's how real rap songs should be. Unfortunately American rap has lost it, in Brazilian rap is going through the same path.

    And how to fight an enemy we can't see? Let's start by fighting ourselves, revolution start within our minds. Knowledge is wisdom and that's very best weapon humanity has ever developed.

  • Hello Vivi

    Smooth words, high-density .

    Ironic is an art  enters into the details of the case to catch the funny and the painful paradoxes, talk about the pain could produce the finest types of laughter .

    Really a nice blog , furthermore it could use for optometry. next time please change the type and size of the font :D, because not all people eat carrots daily.

    Best wishes .

  • What a philosophic song! =) Keep up the good writing! Your advocate, TK

  • Vivi when I watch all those killings and people dying on TV,I suddenly feel so empty inside and I think "Oh gosh we're getting seeing people die!what is becoming of us?" 

    we can't hurt others without getting hurt,and how foolish we are not to understand this simple fact after so many lessons that history taught us!

    "Tell me why are we so blind to see that the ones we hurt are you and me?!","2pac's words"

    Why??!!

    Is the question that remains with no answer all the time!

    NOTHING makes sense! 

  • just loved it Vivi :-* and admire your translation ,You would say it is ironic , but my opinion is it is too philosophic :)

  • Vivi :D

    How glad I am to see someone is paying attention to the font of the blog lol. It looks pretty and in perfect size. I haven't finished reading it btw :p
