Liberty’s knocking at our door (7)

By Habib Sulemani

Stay away!
The crumbling empire of the tyrants
is coming down…

Look!
The oppressed’re happy
and the tyrants’ve gone crazy!
   
No one had expected that there’s
also an end to tyranny…

First they lost control over
the government, then the security forces
and now the state is slipping away
from their bloody hands…

Generations passed just to see this day!

O my oppressed people!
I’ve checked the lie of the land…
Do not panic...
Stay calm...
Things'd be cool soon...
You need not to worry at all!

I want to assure you: 
The innocent public’s safe,
but it’s the endgame for our tormentors!

Listen!
Can you hear something…?
The light breeze blowing from the
Marglla Hills whispers something... 

Yippee…yippee…  
Liberty’s knocking at our door!
