Sariling Bait

“The capacity to think and decide for oneself”

Martial Law was an era of dictatorship and tyranny.

It was one of the darkest moments of our nation’s history.

The blind following of powerful people to the Dictator Ferdinand Marcos lead our country to rot.

Freedom, justice and life were privileges only given to some.

Back then, whatever the dictator says, his cronies will follow.

Today, we see a resemblance of the terror that once haunted us.

 

“Sariling Bait”, courtesy of GGM Publishing and interpreted by Annie Lux is a rendition that depicts blind following towards a leader.

From the elements shown in the music video to the message that the song portrays, Sariling Bait throws a strong punch about the reality of today.

Leaders and supporters today are seemingly hypnotized people not minding foul language and harsh consequences of the administration’s policies.

They may be physically functioning individuals, but they have lost the capacity to think and decide for oneself.

Nawalan sila ng Sariling Bait.

Nangangamoy – Dong Abay

Stink (Lyrics) English Translation

 

I thought you were different

Unlike them, your conscience was clear

Your secrets concealed in the dark

Hide them all you want, you’ll be found out

Wash all you want, your blackening heart

Your evil will smell, oh it will stink

 

Will stink, it stinks, it has stunk

 

Really an old story, it has happened before

What’s history is still happening now

The promise of change ended up a slogan

You’re more nefarious than the one you replaced

In your term of office it’s all gotten worse

You’re callous and deaf to the people’s tears

 

Will stink, it stinks, it has stunk

 

The drugs persist, the traffic, the troubles

Corruption in government, people without work

The people you appoint are just incompetent

Crime all over, killings here, there, everywhere

 

Will stink, it stinks, it has stunk

UOD – Ebe Dancel

Earthworm (Lyrics) English Translation

 

Earthworms in the stomach

started dancing wild

to the tune of hunger

a stomach empty and void

 

And in the heat of the sun

was once again cooked

were tons of garbage

that will be their feast

 

Like you, like me

estranged dogs in this world

Like you, like me

delirious people in this world

 

The delirious people

started laughing hard

to the tune of greed

an empty void heart

 

And in the flow of tears

the poor dog got used to

in a life that was shamelessly

taken away by a delirious master

 

Like you, like me

estranged dogs in this world

Like you, like me

delirious people in this world

 

Translated By: Mr. Reigner Sanchez
