Buhumni bikha gejerao jinir nangnai

Jenoba buhumni sithase khwmsia
Mwikhari badi khuga sina dongo

Dinwi phin angni gami arw ang 
Undu phinnw hanai nonglia.

English Translation

The two sides of Death
As soon as morning
The dead bodies of people are seen
On the green grass.

The blood is falling in Death yelling
I have seen
It is a stigma dropped on the
Face of the world.

Mother and father were together
But, nothing surprises in this world
When handing over blood to us.

Our hearts burn like wood
Dry world gets cold by rain
Staying in front of a pond, we miss
Thousands of lost faces.

Look at Death.
Did you see anything? 
I still see something stuck
Like a red blood flowing inside the blood cycle.

When the evening goes down
Busy dreams of the body
Flows through the waves of Death
A part of the darkness comes into the world
By opening the mouth

The village and I will not sleep again tonight.


Angni okhrangni singao
Santhro haywi muaphwrkhwu
Phwthainaini unaobw
Gaokhou phwthainaya jwbwr gwbrab
Subungphwra gaonikhrui phwthayw abong laorikhwou, nongkhaikhwou, mwikhari phwrkhwou
Nathai jwng phwthaiya nosungseni subungphwrkhwou

Bekhainw guli-barud phwra

Rwja-rwja subungphwrkhwou butharsrangnaini unaobw

Beyw mengakhwi
Manwna beyw gaokhwou arw gaoni gwhw bwlwkhwou phwthayw

Jwng daohani thakhai khanthi siphaibai
Buhumni gilu -balu gwhwkhwou dinthinw

Gwjwna da buhumniphrai gwma langbai

Odebani subunga gaoni thakhai
Arw subungphwrni thakhai khebse
Gaokhwou phwthai nangwoumwn
Nathai, subungphwra khebseni thakhaibw
Swdrwm jananwi dinthi hayakhiswi.

English Translation

Under my sky
There are many things
Despite trusting them all
It's so hard to believe myself
People trust in God more than themselves.
People trust lies
People trust terrorists
We don't even trust our neighbours.

So even today, ammunition becames the most powerful
Even after killing millions of people
It is not tired
Because it relies on its power
And people, didn't even trust themselves.

We break the law for war
To show the awesome powers in the world

Peace is lost!

If those terrible powers are so confident
For once, people should trust themselves
To be good and superior.
There is no more valuable trustworthy thing in the world
And people cannot even trust themselves.
