Translation: Matadjem Yinmixan - Tinariwen

"Matadjem Yinmixan" from the album "Aman Iman" (Original Lyrics)
By Tinariwen

Why all this hate between you which you teach your children

The world looks at you and surpasses your understanding

You who resemble neither a westerner nor an Arab

Your faith in the tribes blinds you to the truth

Even if God were to send a blessing down for you to share

With a friend, they will only betray your confidence
