Hive Open Mic Week 68 // Isi Rimba Tak Ada Tempat Berpijak Lagi // Cover Song - Iwan Fals

Hello Hivers

I'm back again after more than a week didn't make any post on Hive. Today, It's time to store a post on Hive Open Mic Week 68 with the theme given :"Conciencia Ecológica." In English, this means: "Eco Consciousness" or "Ecological Awareness." This theme is selected by Spotlight Artist: @dealtokilate, who is an incredibly talented singer. Our community is blessed by her presence here. Everyone is encouraged to share the collective current as we express and connect through: Conciencia Ecológica. To be match with the theme, I'd chosen a song from Indonesian legend musician Iwan Fals named "Isi Rimba Tak Ada Tempat Berpijak Lagi" in English translation means "The contents of the jungle there is no place to stand anymore". Iwan Fals through this song critisized those people who do illegal logging. You may check the link of my video below...

Here is the lyrics and its English translation..

Raung buldozer gemuruh pohon tumbang
Berpadu dengan jerit isi rimba raya
Tawa kelakar badut-badut serakah
Tanpa HPH berbuat semaunya

The roar of the bulldozer the roar of fallen tree
Combined with the screams of the jungle
Laughter of greedy clowns
Without legal right do whatever they want

Lestarikan alam hanya celoteh belaka
Lestarikan alam mengapa tidak dari dulu?
Oh, mengapa?

Preserving nature is just a babble
Preserve nature why not from the first?
Oh, why?

O-ho-o-o jelas kami kecewa
Menatap rimba yang dulu perkasa
Kini tinggal cerita
Pengantar lelap si buyung

O-ho-o-o obviously we're disappointed
Staring at the once mighty jungle
Now it's just a story
The boy's sleep introduction

Bencana erosi selalu datang menghantui
Tanah kering-kerontang banjir datang itu pasti
Isi rimba tak ada tempat berpijak lagi
Punah dengan sendirinya akibat rakus manusia

Erosion disasters always come to haunt
The land is dry, the flood is coming for sure
The contents of the jungle have no place to stand anymore
Extinct automatically due to human greed

Lestarikan hutan hanya celoteh belaka
Lestarikan hutan mengapa tidak dari dulu saja?

Preserving the forest is just a chatter
Preserve the forest why not from the start?

O-ho-o-o jelas kami kecewa
Mendengar gergaji tak pernah berhenti
Demi kantong pribadi
Tak ingat rezeki generasi nanti

O-ho-o-o obviously we're disappointed
Hear the saw never stop
For personal pocket
Don't remember the sustenance of the next generation

Bencana erosi selalu datang menghantui
Tanah kering-kerontang banjir datang itu pasti
Isi rimba tak ada tempat berpijak lagi
Punah dengan sendirinya akibat rakus manusia

Erosion disasters always come to haunt
The land is dry, the flood is coming for sure
The contents of the jungle have no place to stand anymore
Extinct automatically due to human greed

Bencana erosi selalu datang menghantui
Tanah kering-kerontang banjir datang itu pasti
Isi rimba tak ada tempat berpijak lagi
Punah dengan sendirinya akibat rakus manusia

Erosion disasters always come to haunt
The land is dry, the flood is coming for sure
The contents of the jungle have no place to stand anymore
Extinct automatically due to human greed

Bencana erosi selalu datang menghantui
Tanah kering-kerontang banjir datang itu pasti
Isi rimba tak ada tempat berpijak lagi
Punah dengan sendirinya akibat rakus manusia

Erosion disasters always come to haunt
The land is dry, the flood is coming for sure
The contents of the jungle have no place to stand anymore
Extinct automatically due to human greed
