Lyrics:
It’s my city, my concrete
since the day I was born it’s been under my feet
under my skin, inside of my head
put my picture on the sidewalk
the day that I’m dead
Pour out some liquor, now break some bread
for the streets, people have bled
Pour out some liquor, now break some bread
for the streets, people have bled
Rise up my People, rise up, rise up my people x 3
It’s your city, your concrete
so shape the world that is under your feet
all messed up, yet tidy and neat
filled with love and controversy
stories of life, they’re carved in stone
you might not see us but you’re never alone
stories of life, they’re carved in stone
you might not see us but you’re never alone
Rise up my People, rise up, rise up my people x 3
Cause it’s our city, our concrete
silky soft, yet rugged and beaten
Urban jungle, sweet and sour
within the people you find the power
you find the light,
in the jungle you will learn to fight
you might fall, but not tonight
It’s all about the balance, left and right
If you agitate the snake, the snake will bite
So rise up my people. Rise up, rise up my people x 3

In Iran, all is quiet.
no sounds of gunfire
no crowds chanting
no one making speeches
no one calls home
from their prison cell
or talks about their ordeal

They still grieve their loved ones
They still seek justice
They are not forgotten

Some write letters
Some recite poetry
But to really be HEARD
They need your VOICE.
Global SILENCE can be a KILLER!
SPEAK NOW!

Badbadak (Balloon), a song by exiled Iranian musician Morteza Darestani about a child’s longing for a martyred father and the pain of his absence. This song was given permission by the Guidance Ministry to be played by Seda-va-Sima (the official state media broadcaster), but the media in Iran were prohibited from playing this track by the Iranian regime after being aired just two times.
