Ignoring Crying Winds (Indonesian + English)

In the beginning, Mother Nature cried,
Her children ignored [every] sign,
She felt no guilt,

cemara menderai sampai jauh
terasa hari akan jadi malam
ada beberapa dahan di tingkap merapuh
dipukul angin yang terpendam

Why did the Pine Trees whistle?
How come both the day and the night wished vengeance?
Even the winds wished us harm…

hidup hanya menunda kekalahan
tambah terasing dari cinta sekolah rendah
dan tahu, ada yang tetap tidak terucapkan
sebelum pada akhirnya kita menyerah

Instead of creation becoming the One to Fear,
Mother Nature has chosen to violently rape the earth,
Waiting for us to surrender,
Until that day comes; Her children will continue to suffer,

aku sekarang orangnya bisa tahan
sudah berapa waktu bukan kanak lagi
tapi dulu memang ada suatu bahan
yang bukan dasar perhitungan kini

Mark today, as the day, I can no longer cry,
When natural disasters crumble cities,
For the winds, the skies, and the seas,
Cried out loud; Her children were the original monsters,
