Lyrics:
(translation by Amanda!)

(Malak)
You gave dope a lead role
Cuz with it ur problems are forgotten
We don't wanna live with forgetful people
This whole idea makes no sense to me

More dealers in this exciting world
and you people can't see what's happening
Come on people! Don't u have a conscience?
This all leads to destroying deciding your destiny

I'm tired of talking but I want you to hear me
You gotta stay away from drugs and follow me
Stop ur stupidness cuz I swear it's boring me
I'm done talking but I wish you'd understand me

Chorus:
I'm sick and tired. I want a change!
I'm fed up, I'm stressed, I want to be free.

Verse 2
(Ari)
Trying to put my problems on the paper
Gonna sing about stuff that really gives me anger
Take yourself to a higher level
cuz we have no time for a rebel

And when I look at them and see what they created
and all of the hate they generated.

I discover that I am pale and faded
and I realize that no one has been liberated.

(Carine)
I want to live free
Nothing on my shoulders pulling me down
To go wherever I want whenever I want
With All my friends and family around

Chorus:
I'm sick and tired. I want a change!
I'm fed up, I'm stressed, I want to be free.

Verse 3
(Malak)
What? Without drugs you don't talk, you can't walk, you don't even say good evening?
Have you no shame? Without it you can't live?
Drugs in our hood are given to whoever's passin by
Poisons have killed the Neighbor's son

I'm sick and tired I want to change
I'm pissed, I'm stressed, I want to be free
Minds trapped with planted drugs.
Walking down the street makes me feel like I'm fighting

Brutal beasts surrounding me
I wanna end a just beginning
Wanna sit at the front door not smelling a scent
I want them, I want u, I want all of you
To walk this way with me

Chorus:
I'm sick and tired. I want a change!
I'm fed up, I'm stressed, I want to be free.
