Dictatorship Is Always Ephemeral
Long live DEMOCRACY around the world!
Long live peace and unity of the Nations under the starry sky!
Dictatorship is short-lived and lasts only a moment
No one is eternal. It's a matter of time
Dictatorship is always temporary
Dictatorship is always ephemeral
The constitution is the mother of all laws
It must be respected. The constitution has weights
Justice and democracy are twins
Without peace and respect, nature is not beautiful
And criminals roam the streets like crazy lice
Long live the constitution! We need to get away from a sick world
And drive out the anti-democratic leaders out power
Dictatorship breeds crime, corruption and setbacks
Long live democracy! Long live the people coming out of the dormitories
To express themselves in the streets of the city. We must believe
In freedom and liberty. Expressing oneself is a right, not a privilege
Democracy and peace must float like angelic corks
On the waves of hope, away from evils, abuses and traps
Long live peace! Long live freedom of speech! Long live democracy!
Long live the articles of the Constitution! DEMOCRACY only is for life!
Long live hope! Long live love! Long live independence! Long live life!
