The Angry Music Hour Presents...

For the people of Tahrir Square, Soobax by K'naan. Soobax translates as "come out". A translation of the chorus:
Dadkii waa dhibtee nagala soobax:

(Translation- you have exasperated the people so come out with it.)

Dhibkii waa batee nagla soobax:

(Translation - The troubles have increased so come out with it.)

Dhiigi waad qubtee nagala soobax:

(Translation- you've spilled the blood so that it drains on the Roads, so come out with it.)

Dhulkii waad gubtee nagala soobax:

(Translation-You've burnt the root of the earth, so come out with it.)
