Shila Amzah in front of a billion Chinese
Merdeka Shuffle 4.0
WAKE UP! Malaysian Rapper United (Namewee / Ashtaka / 5Forty2)
A billion Communist singing this song, in spite …
The bell chimes the signal to go home
In his life, still carries a sigh of regret
Dark skin gives him the meaning of life
A life devoted to the struggle of color
Passage of time takes away all that he possessed
Even that glimpse of hope from his fatigue eyes
All is left today is a mere empty shell
to welcome the glorious past
holding fast to freedom in the midst of wind and rain.
A lifetime of loss and struggle
Believing in one’s ability to change the future
Dare ask who can accomplish that?
“Takkan Melayu Hilang di Dunia” — Wake Up, Melayu.
You will surely hilang, as we hilang in this Tanah Melayu.
Post-Note: Did not realize Grace Lee Bog has just completed her last day with us after being us for a hundred year. Beyond’s song could be real tribute to Grace Lee Bog.
Wonder how many mainland Chinese who adores Beyond’s song know about this Grace Lee Bog.
