about

I wrote this song about the ongoing protests in Iran.

lyrics

Baba said I don‘t like you wearing that
headscarf I don‘t think you understand
But baba I find it pretty and aunt Fatemeh wears it every day
And if she was alive today I know that she would say

Take it off, throw it in the flames
And watch it burn like everything they took away from us
The freedom to love
The freedom to wear whatever we like
Forced to hide
killing and beating
Did they think we wouldn‘t fight?

Jina Amini killed for a piece of fabric on her head Isn‘t it mad?
How dare you decide over living and dead
Hear them shout in the streets
„Zan, Zendegi, Azadi!“
If she was alive today I think that she would say

Take it off, throw it in the flames
And watch it burn like everything they took away from us
The freedom to love
The freedom to wear whatever we like
Forced to hide
killing and beating
Did they think we wouldn‘t fight?
