khohnM theuuR bpeuunM
Those who carry guns
baawkL haiF raoM ngiiapF
Tell us to be quiet
yaaL sohngL siiangR dangM
Do not make any noise
raoM fangM
We listen
laaeoH sangR haawnR jaiM
And think to ourselves
"ไม่มีอะไร ไม่มีอะไร
maiF meeM aL raiM maiF meeM aL raiM
“There’s nothing wrong going on”
khohnM bohnM rohtH thangR
The soldiers on the tanks
siiangR dangM gangM waanM
Make loud noises
laawH saaiR phaanM phaanL bpaiM
As their tracked-wheels pass by
ไม่มีอะไร ไม่มีอะไร
maiF meeM aL raiM maiF meeM aL raiM
Nothing to see here
กินไม่ได้ กินไม่ได้
ginM maiF daiF ginM maiF daiF
Does not put food on the table
khohnM theuuR bpaakL gaaM
Those who wield the pen
naiM khuuM haaR gaaM gaL baatL
In the voting booth
khitH waatF fanR
Are sketching their dreams
bpanF bpraL thaehtF
to mold their nation
reuuR bpleuuakL dtangF
or, to shred our ballots
รอรถถังเต็มถนน ปล้นประชาธิปไตย
raawM rohtH thangR dtemM thaL nohnR bplohnF bpraL chaaM thipH bpaL dtaiM
Waiting for tanks to fill the streets to rob us of our democracy
