STORYBOARD:
The Album follows the journey of refugees out of war torn Syria into the border region camps and finally passing into Iran before resettlement as part of the refugee relief program. Based on and around real story’s and events the Album aims to raise awareness largely ignored and taboo subject of the plight of Refugees. While all Media focuses on the Political Religious Sectarian disputes in the conflict Message in the Sand focuses on the flight, traffic and journey of the victims of war, the people. both in the War Zone through to the Camps, and finally to the current Journey’s end, (re-housed overseas)

The story of the victims of War is a constant global issue. The album could have been focused on any number of conflicts, Chechnya or Yugoslavia, or Rwanda and many many other places. It has happened in history time and time again,. Syria is currently the battleground of warlords and power seekers and there story commands the Media. It is for this reason that the Story centers on Syria’s refugees, the silenced ones, the discarded, the ignored.

This Album is not an attempt to judge, take sides, claim right and wrong, be Political in anyway.

The unfortunate truth for the Refugee is that often there is as much danger in fleeing a war as in being a victim of the conflict on the field. Music is the universal language that all people speak and it is this hope that the message in the sand will be carried forward to all.

War Chatter

War is not the solution, solution, solution, solution,

There was a gas attack, a Chemical Attack in Syria, and a lot of people were, injured, and, and, and hurt,

and, and, hurt.

and, and, hurt.

and, and, hurt.

and, and, hurt.

So the UN had a team to investigate who did this Gas attack, this Chemical attack. The first time the team were shot, shot shot shot, shot. So we had to wait then they sent another team to investigate the situation.

The tension is already so so high.

The tension is already so so high.

It’s a very dangerous situation that we are in. What do people want ? What do people of all Countries want ? Security. They want their survival taken care of. That’s what we want. We don’t want to fight each other.

This is all about Governments against Governments.

Most people could very easily live together when they have everything taken care of. About when we have a house when we have enough food, when we have enough water, when we have a stable income.

It’s always the same shit.

It’s always the same shit. The Solution is not in Bombs, in missiles, the solution is to create a permanent world where everyone can live a good life, and only when we do that and stop this exploitative economy that makes poverty, and , and what do you call it, friction worldwide.

We’re not going to end any wars or any friction if we have these power games, if we have these money games, if we have this system of inequality that creates poverty, and creates people to see each other as threats, and, creates propaganda , false ideas, and about people, about groups of people and push people up against each other.

It’s always the same shit.

It’s always the same shit.

It’s always the same shit.

It’s always the same shit.

that creates propaganda , false ideas, and about people, about groups of people and push people up against each other, or believing that we have to be a certain way just to be good , but war is not the solution , not the solution, not, not , the solution.

War is not the solution , not the solution, not, not , the solution.

War is not the solution , not the solution, not, not , the solution.

not, not. the solution not. not the solution, not. not. the solution……

Refugee Press Story:

معاون دبیر اول وزارت امور خارجه جمهوری اسلامی ایران، حسین امیر عبدالاهیان در انتشار بیانیهای اعلام فرمودند؛ که مرزهای با شکوه جمهوری اسلامی ایران برای کمک به دهها هزار پناهنده سوریه که در حال حاضر در ازدهام فراوان در کمپهای اردون هاشمی زندگی میکنند، باز میشود تا زمانیکه امکاناتلازم برای برگشت انها به مملکتشان فراهم شود.

The deputy secretary of the foreign ministry published his manifesto announcing that the borders of the Glorious Islamic Republic of Iran will open to receive ten thousand Syrian refugees currently lodged in a number of neighboring countries refugee camps. Housing will be provided until a relocation agreement can be brokered with other nations.

سازمان ملل متحد، پیش بینی مکند که اگر اغتشاشات سوریه به پایان نرسد تعداد پناهندگان به بیش از یکملیون و یکصد هزار نفر خواهد رسید.

The United Nations have warned that if a solution to the Refugee crisis is not found, we could be looking at excess of 100,000 transitory people.

خَطَفُوهُمْ , بِنْتين , لا تَلاتِه . وَئْتْ رَجَعُوْهُم كَانُو يَائْسِينْ . صَارُو يْفَكْرُو بِلْ اِنْتِحَارْ . هَادْ الشِي عَبِصِيْر دَائِمَاً .نِحْنَا بِخَطَرْ .فِيْ بَنَاتْ عَبِخَلُوْهُمْ يْشْتِغْلُو بِلْ دَعَارَه .نِحْنَا بِخَطَرْ.

(They took them, 2, no I think 3 girls. When they brought them back they were depressed. They talked about suicide. It happens all the time. We are in danger. Some girls are made to work as prostitutes. We are in Danger.)

Lyrics Translation from Syrian Dialect to Contemporary Arabic

قد اخذوهم , اثنتان ,لا بل ثلاثة فتيات.عندما اعادوهم قد كُنًّ محبطات .تكلمنًّ عن الانتحار.ان ذلك يحصل دائماً.نحن في خطر .بعض الفتيات قد اجبروا على العمل في الدعارة .نحن في خطر

Survivors are very reluctant to report rape due to extreme and restrictive cultural values and stigma. Survivors are very unlikely to seek support due to the risk of being killed by their families, shame and fear of facing a continued cycle of physical and sexual violence including honor killing, survival sex, increased risk of early and coerced marriage, domestic violence and risk of suicide are all issues of concern. Fundamentally Women do not have safe access to reliable services and support.

Persian (Farsi)

جسد ۳دختر جوانی که به منطقه امنی در ایران فرستاده شده بودند، یک روز بعد از رسیدنشان در حالی که خود را حلق اویز کرده بودند، در جنوب ساختمانهایی که به انها مکان داده شده بود پیدا کردند.
احتمال میرود که این ۳نفر تحمل شرمساری تجاوزی که به انها شده بود نداشتند و دست به خودکشی زدند.

(Unable to bear the humiliation and social stigma attached to rape, 3 refugee girls who had transferred from camps in neighboring countries to safe facilities in Iran were found hanged south of the housing blocks the morning after arrival. An open verdict of suicide in all three cases has been recorded.)

Rape is becoming increasing widespread throughout the Syria fallout conflict zone. One new study reports that rape has become so prevalent that it is a factor in driving thousands of Syrian families into exile.

Syrian Dialect Arabic

هَادْ الشِي عَبِصِيْر دَائِمَاً .نِحْنَا بِخَطَرْ

(We are in danger, it happens all the time)

. صَارُو يْفَكْرُو بِلْ

(They talked about committing suicide)

. هَادْ الشِي عَبِصِيْر دَائِمَاً .نِحْنَا بِخَطَرْ

(We are in danger, it happens all the time)

. هَادْ الشِي عَبِصِيْر دَائِمَاً .نِحْنَا بِخَطَرْ

(We are in danger, it happens all the time)

هَادْ الشِي عَبِصِيْر دَائِمَاً .نِحْنَا بِخَطَرْ

(We are in danger, it happens all the time)

A Flower in the Desert,
Hanging from the Tree
Blood Red ,. Shifts still uncomfortably

A Flower in Desert,
Plucked from Life,
Twitching still on failing sunset breeze

A Flower in the Desert
Body Broken, Stripped in rage
Neck wrenched painted red in unnatural Shame

A Flower in the Desert
Eyes plucked clean,
Worn on Crow’s Claws , ornaments and rings

A Flower in the Desert
Condemning still
Unlawfully desecrated, Bartered for a meal

A Flower in the Desert
Vain curses voiced
violation, rape betrayal of youthful joy

A Flower in the Desert
Bodily forget,
Seek Peace in Death
Feeding the dust in tainted regret

A Flower in the Desert
Guilt for silver changing hands
Death cheats the deal the never has

A Flower in the Desert
Mournful Release
Violent Violate bodily disbelief

Heed not the breathless whispers
Nor voices do the dead dispose
Heinous acts against innocents
Crimes never to be disclosed

Frenzied, Hateful unfathomable desires
Claim and Consume the fruit of youth
Nothing left but the rotting knot
Upon the asphyxiating rope of truth

These are the victims of war
Forever lost, the brightest lights
These are the Victims of war
Mankind chose a Dominion of Violence

09 Contemptuous Eulogy مديح للازدراء

Persian (Farsi)

رئیس جمهوری ایران حسن روحانی اعلام کردند که؛
جمهوری اسلامی کمکهای انسانی خود را به سوریه ادامه میدهد.

(In July, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani underlined that the Islamic Republic of Iran would continue dispatch aid to Syria)

رئیس جمهور اقای روحانی فرمودند؛
در شرایط سختی که در مردم سوریه در حال حاضر بسر میبرند، دولت ایران کمکهای انسانی و همکاری خود را به انها ادامه میدهد، در حای که مخالف اغتشاشات در مناطق اشغال شده در سوریه است.

(President Rouhani was reported to have confirmed that due to the difficult living conditions of the Syrian People, the Iranian Government will continue distribution of humanitarian aid to Syria, though remains steadfast in condemnation of hostile acts in the region , specially related to Syria.)

Iran has staunchly backed Syrian President Bashar al-Assad with Military and Financial aid since an anti-regime uprising first began in March 2011 and regards the Syrian opposition groups as terrorists being backed by Western and Arab countries and as a result the main driver behind the refugee crisis is Syria.

(President Rouhani was reported to have confirmed that due to the difficult living conditions of the Syrian People, the Iranian Government will continue the distribution of humanitarian aid to Syria, though remains steadfast in condemnation of hostile acts in the region , specially related to Syria.)

Iran’s deputy foreign minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian was reported to have warned strongly against any foreign interference to impose change in Syria.

دولت ایران بارها همکاری خود را برای برقراری صلح در سوریه و باز کردن راه برای مزاکرات بین دولت و مخالفان دولت و بر قراری دولتی مستقل و ایجاد ارامش در خاور میانه اعلام فرمودند.
دولت ایران نمایندگان دولت سوریه و مخالفان این دولت را برای مذاکره و پیدا کردن راهی برای خاتمه جنگ و بر قراری صلح در این منطقه به ایران دعوت شدند،
که این کنفرانس در اواسط نوامبر با شعار جنگ نه، ازادی بله، اغاز شد.

(Iranian officials have underlined that Tehran is in favor of co-operation and negotiations between the Syrian government and opposition groups to create stability in the Middle East. representatives of the Government of Syria and opponents of the government were invited to Iran to negotiate and find a way to end war and establish peace in the region.The National Dialogue conference kicked off work in Tehran mid-November with the motto “No to violence, Yes to Democracy”.)

Iran has stepped up support on the ground for President Bashar al-Assad, providing elite teams to gather intelligence and train troops, US reporting sources advised today. This further backing from Tehran, along with deliveries of munitions and equipment form Moscow is helping to keep Assad in power at a time when neither his own forces nor opposition fighters have a decisive edge on the battlefield.

While the presence of Iranian Military personnel in Syria is not new, US military experts believe Tehran has in recent months sent in more specialists to enable Assad to outlast his enemies at home and abroad.

A former senior Iranian official with close IRGC links said Iranian forces were active in the area. These include senior commanders from the elite Qud’s force, the external and secretive arm of the powerful Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps as well as IRGC members.

The evidence indicated hundreds of Iranian advisers and trainers were in side Syrian at any one time. These figures could not be verified from Syria but the deaths of at least two IRGC commanders in Syria have been reported publicly.

۴۰۰۰ فرزندان ایران برای عقب نشاندن سیاهی فرستاده شدند،
ولی به چشم یک سرباز تاریکی از داخل است،
۴۰۰۰ فرزندان ایران برای غقب نشاندن سیاهی فرستاده شدند،

(Stories told and re-told, lies re-written,

4000 Iranian sons sent to hold back the darkness,
yet in a soldiers eyes darkness is within ?
4000 Iranian sons sent to hold back the darkness
yet to our Brothers are we savior or foe ?)

Cela fait trois mois qu’ils sont arrivés en France. Pour la plupart, la violence et les combats ont détruit leurs villes et villages et les ont force à quitter leur pays. Depuis ils ont successivement traversé la Jordanie, l’Iraq, l’Iran et suite a un programme de relogement a l’étranger ils sont finalement arrivé à Paris; un total de 126 familles.

(They arrived in France 3 months ago. For most of them war and violence have destroyed their homes and lives and forced them to flee there homeland. For 126 families, since leaving home they have had to cross Jordan, Iraq and into Iran and finally thanks to an overseas rehousing program, they have arrived in Paris.)

Il se retrouve chaque jour dans le parc de Saint Ouen. Depuis trois mois leur nombre ne fait qu’augmenter. Dans le parc on découvre des gens affamés, épuisés et malades, on voit des enfants en bas age et des femmes enceinte.

(Everyday they gather in the Saint Ouen Park where we find them suffering from starvation, dishevelment, neglect, illness among theer number there are young children and pregnant women. month on month the numbers just keep increasing.)

La plupart de ces refugiés ont déjà déposés des demandes d’asile mais la question du logement pose problème. A proximité du parc, l’hôtel accueil quelques familles, mais les solutions manque. Chaque jour, pour les associations bénévoles c’est la course Contre la montre pour s’assurer que personne ne dorment dehors, mais la situation est de plus en plus difficile a gérer. Face à cette situation d’urgence, les mobilisations grandissent et les associations appellent l’état à réquisitionner un lieu d’accueille pour héberger ces familles.

(Most of the Refugees are seeking asylum status, but housing remains an issue. Some families have been put up in a small hotel on the outskirts of the park but solutions for all are hard to come by. Charity’s run vigil to try and ensure no one gets left sleeping rough and support for action grows. Charities are calling on the State to become involved and provided a solution to the housing crisis.)
