Haiti, my country
wounded mother I’ll never see.
My family, set me free.
Throw my ashes into the sea.
All my brothers were never born
haunt the nights , we are all torn
you know our hopes are all free
Guns can’t kill what soldiers can’t see.
In the forest we lie hiding,
unmarked graves where flowers grow.
Hear the soldiers angry yelling,
in the river we will go.
We will build an army of (joy)
soon we will reclaim the earth.
All the tears and all the bodies
bring about our second birth.
Haiti, never free
don’t you fear to sound the alarm
all the children are already gone
In those days their blood was still warm
