ANOHNI - Crisis Lyrics

If I killed your father
With a drone bomb
How would you feel?

If I killed your mother
With a drone bomb
How would you feel?

If I killed your children
With a drone bomb
How would you feel?

If I tortured your brother
In Guantanamo
I’m sorry

I’m sorry
I’m sorry
I’m sorry
I’m sorry

Now you’re
Cutting heads off
Innocent people

If I filled up your mass graves
And attacked your countries
Under false premise

I’m sorry
I’m sorry
I’m sorry
I’m sorry

I’m sorry, I’m sorry
I’m sorry, please, please
I’m sorry, yeah

ANOHNI Crisis Comments
  1. Adam Fachry Reinaldy

    Immediately revisited this song after the whole U.S.-Iran debacle. The line “daughter, if I filled up your mass graves and attacked your country under false premise, I’m sorry” really hit home to me.

    Если бы я убила твоего отца бомбой-беспилотником
    Как бы вы себя чувствовали?

    Если бы я убила твою мать бомбой-беспилотником
    Как бы вы себя чувствовали?

    Если бы я убила ваших детей бомбой-беспилотником
    Как бы вы себя чувствовали?

    Если бы я пытал твоего брата в Гуантанамо
    Извините, пожалуйста

    Теперь ты отрезаешь головы
    Невинные люди на ТВ

    Если бы я заполнил твои братские могилы
    И напали на ваши страны под ложным предпосылкой
    Извините, пожалуйста

    в главной роли Storm Lever

    «Мы безжалостно пытали людей. Мы, вероятно, убили десятки из них в ходе этого, как вооруженные силы, так и ЦРУ." - Генерал Барри МакКаффри

    «Больше нет никаких сомнений в том, что нынешняя администрация совершила военные преступления... остается ответить только на вопрос, будут ли привлечены к ответственности те, кто отдал приказ о применении пыток".
    Генерал Антонио Тагуба

    "Мы должны смотреть вперед, а не оглядываться назад". - Президент Барак Обама

    "Потому что каждый президент в конечном итоге покидает свой пост, входящие руководители имеют стимул для отмены расследования своего предшественника пребывания в должности." - Чарли Savage, Нью-йорк таймс "

  25. danny c

    Has the song been altered or is this the actual song it’s sounds distorted

  26. Afablesotrue

    I think Anohni's release of Hopelessness was the best form of whistleblowing to ever be done and did an amazing job at explaining the hypocrisy of the American government.

    I feel that this is a song about soldiers feeling guilt after doing the deeds of their evil leaders. Humans who fight to protect what is theirs and what is their culture ... But instead end up killing innocent people in the name of politics.

    I was a soldier, the guilt of being part of an army that was attacking and not 'defending' made me leave once I could leave. I joined the Army to defend my country, not to just attack people who didn't have the strength we had. I didn't shoot anyone (I was a medic) but I was part of something aggressive, which indiscriminately killed. I couldn't be part of that anymore. My soul hurt thinking about how we were just making everything worse, we weren't 'bringing peace', we were just adding fuel to the fire.

    This is what this song feels like to me, the killing of people's families and all you can say is 'sorry' inside your head. I witnessed many soldiers crumble under the weight of killing strangers, the sense of guilt and helplessness in following orders was always written across their faces.

    This touched my soul... To me, this song is about guilt, the guilt of following orders that went against your own morality and the helplessness in your actions because this was ultimately something you had signed up to. Feeling deceived, lied to and feeling stupid in falling for their propaganda. All you can say, in the end... Is 'sorry'.

    Then many go home and kill themselves over it...No one winning.

    We need more songs like that.

  54. Shavais Zarathu

    So there are conflicts between the Shiites and the Soonies, and conflicts between various other regional ethnic groups, and conflicts between the Jews and the Palistinians in general. They use missiles and IED's and suicide bombers, and troops with machine guns and rockets and everything else. Often there's raping and pilaging happening. Occasionally, large volumes of poison gas comes into play. Sometimes oil wells are burned. We get drawn into it all because of our long standing sympathy for and friendship with the Jews and because of our incredibly strong economic dependence on foreign oil.

    Imagine gas jumping to $25 a gallon or something like that over a period of a few weeks. The country would shut down, hordes of businesses would close practically over night. Unemployment would quickly reach over 90%. In a matter months we would have people starving in the streets by the millions. The government would just fold under the pressure of all the desperation. Martial law would probably be declared, and all kinds of really, really awful things would happen. As those things took place, just about all bonds and annuities would become worthless. Without earnings, stocks would plummet. Nobody's nest eggs would survive all that. So all our elderly wouldn't be able to buy food, much less pay the rent or pay for any kind of medical care or insurance. Our currency would become worthless; no one would be able to buy food.

    So the whole oil thing *is* a matter of life and death for us - a thing our leaders know very well. So we get drawn into the conflicts, and. Whoever we currently think likes us the best and will deal the most fairly with us becomes the people we support in whatever the current conflict is.

    Gas wouldn't necessarily jump to $25 a gallon as a result of some anti-American Caliphate taking over in the Middle East, but it might happen over a little longer period of time as our reserves went dry and other sources became strained. It's an enormous fear we have, so we sort of feel that those Arabs kind of have us by the throat.

    Even asside from the oil issue, which *is* incredibly real and important, whenever and whereever a highly militant, vocal, and small minority with extremely oppresive religious rules takes the reigns of power in some region or another, we feel compelled to try to come to the rescue of the more progressive majority. In many cases we're reluctant to put our own young men and women under fire (particularly since we only have so many of them), so -

    We use drone bombs.

    And the enemy uses civilians as human shields.

    Communication wires get crossed, and worse than that, lies and propaganda get spread, on all sides, and a whole lot of really, really, really terrible things happen. Personally, I kinda blame that highly militant and vocal and ruthless ultra-religious small minority for it all, but. I'm sure they feel they're just acting in reaction to what we've done. We've supported their enemies for a long time, in war upon war, so. They have plenty to be mad at us about. What really gets my gander is when I discover that the people we've been supporting with money and weapons and "advice" and drone bombs are actually an ultra oppresive minority. That's when I really get the most pissed at our leaders. But they're in the know about a whole lot more than I am, and. I am aware that our choices are limited. A choice between terrible evils is no doubt very often the only choice we have.

    Thank you for this magic

  60. Powell Pressburger

    The single greatest most meaningful song of 2016? It could very well be. Unflinching and yet beautiful; a true political song simultaneously filled to the brim with compassion.

  61. Diego Neira-Muñoz

    please someone make a video of Trump assuming with this song, it fits perfect. I would do it but I dont know how to do it. also you could add the sad Melania on it and how he constantly disrespect her... I just love this song, it fits perfect with the world right now

    Ka sia

    Brilliant idea...

    Memory Rinehart

    How 'bout O"bomb"a instead??

  62. Eke Khademi

    mild xiu xiu vibes coming from this! especially reminds me of SUPPORT OUR TROOPS OH! and Guantanamo Canto

  63. Colin Weiss

    first time ever hearing ANOHNI, found on best albums of 2016. wow, first 1 minute. ehhh, don't really like her voice not feeling this;;;;

    4 minutes later (crying)...fuck this is beautiful music.

  64. Edward Sullivan

    Any idea where to get the instrumental?

  65. Reb Dalmas

    Thank you for this so much ! Time to realize the false premise as only the illusion of and as an elephant in the room, a misplaced ' moving through the eye of the needle' self. We are all the same, we are LIFE. We must forgive, and forgive our ' self' for accepting a false and destructive premise. It is time to connect to who and what we are, to take back our ability too see life, this we had before religion, culture, nationalism educated us into a false premise that separated us from who and what we are. We are all the same, we are the means of real value creation, which need only follow the words, ' do no harm' .

  66. macedonia

    is this produced by arca? I can just tell...

    Interesting, why?


    @Pos Yo also fuck off. It doesn't matter what music people listen to why the fuck judge someone for a harmless preference?

  73. Juan Sayago Cheein

    It's incredible how the electronic parts reinforce the feelings the song is trying to transmit rather than opaque them. This song is so simple yet so devastatingly beautiful I can't even tell. HOPELESSNESS is by far the edgiest, bravest and shiniest accomplishment of 2016. A milestone

    Soon after waking this morning, I learned of Leonard Cohen's death. I spent much of the day listening to his songs. After repeating the amazing cover of his song "If it be your will" by a caterpillar named Antony, I decided to take a break from the beloved Bodhisattva Cohen, and see if there was anything new from this caterpillar. I then discovered a butterfly named Anohni, and I found some of the most important music today.

    I, too, am sorry...

  77. Lucas George Wendt

    It left me speechless.

  78. losgurbio

    simply Amazing. Listening to that song in Alicudi now.

    Emozionante e bellissima. Pelle d'oca !!!

  85. dandeliondunmer

    understand why she wrote this song. it is important, it is so so important. this is perhaps the most meaningful song i have ever heard. music is so trivialized now but this is from the soul and i can feel it.

  86. SvargaYantra

    I will always talk to everyone.

  87. Infp Island

    I can feel anohni's soul in this one :) Modern electronica often distracts/ takes away meaning and depth for me, but if the soul shows through it won't ever lose. I want as much raw feeling as her earlier songs, and I think this one will grow on me.

  88. Rammon Moore

    the thought that comes to mind after watching this is: when the application or understanding of true sorrow occurs within one's existence, to simply say sorry means nothing if you are not willing to actually do anything to right the wrongs that were done on a personal level. each time someone says "I'm sorry" and nothing changes, then the meaning of the words themselves is nothing. I encourage you to be active in your apologies of you really mean them, otherwise they will fall on dead ears leaving another broken heart in its wake.

  89. yakisueba

    I just love her face, her eyes. Her expression. And with Antony's voice. My gawd. <3

  90. Neale Floyd love love love

  91. Christopher Foster

    This music reminds me that I am alive

    Dan Harris

    Completely agree. It is amazing. I reckon this song really helps bridge the empathy gap between people in the west and their victims of war. I really don't think people grasp what war does to people, to communities, to countries. It is devastating. Almost unimaginable unless you have experienced it first hand.

  92. Katia Favaron Atif

    pure ....magnifique...merveilleux. ..mystique

  93. Lee B.

    To hear the raw words and see such emotion on her beautiful face, deeply touching.

  94. qaqsqw

    It has got a great voice.

  95. Ricardo Carabaña

    she is amazing

  96. Thales Guimaraes
