“Utopian Land” lyrics – Argo (Greece 2016)

Greek broadcaster ERT has decided that the band Argo will be the one to fly the Greek flag in Stockholm. In their song “Utopian Land”, Argo combine hip hop sounds with Pontian folk music and traditional instruments such as the lyre, all elements of ancestral legacy for most of the band’s members.

The band sings about the refugee crisis, but admit that “I have experienced a flee when I was young, and I step forward even when I look behind”. “Utopian Land” is a call for unity, so that people will come together and overcome the difficult problems we all face.

We are the rise in the rising sun
Dance with us and have some fun
We are the rise in the rising sun
Join with us for a Utopian Land

Planitis Ghi 2016 –
Oti ki an kanoun
I genia mas tha t’ anteksei
Tin prosfigia tin ezisa mikros
Kitazo piso ma prochorao empros

Skoume to proi – tsateuo ta pedia
Peram’ apsimon ke achpastame sin Utopian
Sa outon kosmon k’ evrame sterea
Pame chalanoume ekes s’ enan merean

We are the rise in the rising sun
Dance with us and have some fun
We are the rise in the rising sun
Join with us for a Utopian Land

Hop Hop
Temeteron hip hop
Perame isitiria

Dyo oras anamenoume to airbahal
Bgalo ta stipa ke o Kotson pa ebgalen to boukal
Hop salout parakatha ke potia
Pinoume votkas ki i giagia m’ gavourevi chapsia
St’ aeroplano esevame me t’ achpaston
Ada nichton ki aki pou pame ksimeron

We are the rise in the rising sun
Dance with us and have some fun
We are the rise in the rising sun
Fight with us for a Utopian Land

Planet Earth 2016
No matter what they do
Our generation will endure
I have experienced a flee when I was young
And I step forward even when I look behind

I get up in the morning and I meet the guys
We are on fire, off we head for the Utopian Land
In these parts of the world
We found no place to stand
Let’s try and paint it red in the Utopian Land

We are the rise in the rising sun
Dance with us and have some fun
We are the rise in the rising sun
Join with us for a Utopian Land

Hop, hop
This is our very own hip hop
We got the tickets and we’ re off to the airport
Waiting for the plane for two hours straight
I got some pickles and my friend has got the drinks
Vodka it is, then, and whatever else time brings
Grandma’s frying fish and we’re on the plane dancing
It won’t be long now before we’re gone
It is dusk here and we’re heading to the dawn

We are the rise in the rising sun
Dance with us and have some fun
We are the rise in the rising sun
Fight with us for a Utopian Land

It is dusk here and we’re heading to the dawn
It is dusk here and we’re heading to the dawn

We are the rise in the rising sun
Dance with us and have some fun
We are the rise in the rising sun
Join with us for a Utopian Land

We are the rise in the rising sun
Dance with us and have some fun
We are the rise in the rising sun
Join with us for a Utopian Land
