Lyrics to Iraqi music video with Ahmed Adrapo: "Oh, Baghdad, they killed you"
They said daylight would come on their bloody swords of death
And now we see but destruction in the eyes of dying children
Oh, Baghdad, they killed you...
Ask not the devil why they are killing us
But, instead, ask the brothers who sold us
Where are the Arabs?
Where are the Muslim People?
Where is the anger for our brothers' blood and ours?
Where are the faithful soldiers?

Dave Rovics: "Who will tell the people?"
