Strangers in Uruk

Deep from the heart of Uruk
The songs of Sumer can be heard
The night singing
Voices of monks
In the temples of Sumer and Uruk
We were there
We passed through temples, palaces and distant places
Looking for our histories
For our memories
The rockets passed over us
The pages of the night were torn
The tanks landed
The voices of the monks stopped
The small flowers were crushed
Uruk still shines in its winter night
Old clans disappeared
Other clans came
A new dawn arose from the night of beautiful Uruk
