Hello, my brothers and sisters, it's nice to be back at the weekly #openmic week 98 event. On this occasion, my band and I performed a cover song entitled "Luka Kita" (Our Pain). This song was popularized by a punk band from Jakarta named "Marjinal".
In our opinion, this song has a very deep meaning. Because the lyrics in this song are a hope and a prayer to God and also nature to ease the burden and tears experienced by disaster victims. So, we agreed to perform this song because the theme is "Conversación Con Dios".
If you are curious about the lyrics of the songs that we bring, then the lyrics are;
"Bencana dari negeri air mata
Ratusan ribu jiwa pergi mendahului kita
Bara luka kobarkan cinta rasa bersama
Bara luka ciptakan satu pelita
Saudaraku yang pergi tak hanya tinggalkan nama
Saudaraku yang pergi meninggalkan berjuta makna
Saudaraku yang pergi membangunkan seisi dunia
Agar mengerti dalamnya makna hidup yang ada
Tunjukkan bahwa kita semua bersaudara
Luka mereka luka kita semua
Tunjukkan, tunjukkan oleh kita
Derita yang ada, derita kita jua
Saudaraku pergi tinggalkan tugas untuk kita
Linangan air mata jadikan lautan permata
Besarnya bencana lebih besarlah hikmahnya
Wujudkan oleh kita agar yang pergi tersenyum di surga"
If translated into English, the lyrics of this song are;
"Catastrophe from the land of tears
Hundred thousands of souls have left before us
The burning of the pain brings us together
The ember of pain ignites a light
My long gone brothers and sisters, you left more than just a name
My long gone brothers and sisters, you left millions of meanings
My long gone brothers and sisters, you have awoken the whole world to understand the true meaning of life
Show that we are all brothers and sisters
Their pain is our pain too
The show, let us show
That their suffering is our suffering too
My long gone brothers and sisters left us a duty
To turn a river of tears into an ocean of gems
The bigger the catastrophe, the bigger the wisdom we gain Let us prove it
For those who are gone could smile in heaven"
To listen to the original song performed by the original singer, I will also include a video link from their YouTube account below
