Sotiria Bellou: Den Les Kouventa – Devastated in Greece (music video)

 Devastated in Greece – What if the economic measures for the next three years were not explicit announced by the prime minister yesterday? Newspapers and television channels warn of lay offs, cuts in social allowances, benefits, more recession. At the same time academics demand transparency about the IMF contract, condemn it as being against the constitution. And yet. Citizens feel abandoned in their misery and silence. Silence in times of the IMF.

Sotiria Bellou and composer Dimos Moutsis sing together the wonderful lyrics of Kostas Tripolitis – English Translation below the video.

 Lyrics:

You don’t say a single word
you keep hidden secrets
and documents
I hear only
the metal slogans
of the microphones

I know your name
your image and then again
I seek for one way out, searching
for a different life

The nights pass,
the seconds heavy
on the minutes hands 
Searching for something
that will not be a howling,
and illusion

In wilderness of kilometres
in silence of timers
the sounds of 
sirens, transporters and ambulances

I know your name
your image and then again
I seek for one way out, searching
for a different life

You don’t say a single word
you keep hidden secrets
and documents
