Asin – Cotabato lyrics

Ako'y isinilang sa isang bayan ng Cotabato
Kasing gulo ng tao, kasing gulo ng mundo
Dahil di magkasundo sa relihiyon at prinsipyo, nagkagulo.

Ang bayan ko sa Cotabato, kasing gulo ng isip ko
Di alam kung saan nanggaling, di alam kung saan patungo
Kapatid sa kapatid, laman sa laman
Sila-sila ang naglalaban, di ko alam ang dahilan ng gulo.

Bakit nagkaganon, ang sagot sa tanong ko
Bakit kayo nagkagulo, bakit kayo nag-away
Prinsipyo mo'y igagalang ko kung ako'y iyong nirespeto
Kung nagtulungan kayo, di sana magulo ang bayan ko.

Sa bayan kong sinilangan, sa timog Cotabato
Ako ay namulat sa napakalaking gulo
Dahil walang respeto sa prinsipyo ng kapwa tao
Kapwa Pilipino ay pinapahirapan mo, ang gulo.

Ako'y nananawagan, humihingi ng tulong n'yo
Kapayapaa'y bigyan ng daan, kapayapaan sa bayan ko
Bakit kailangan pang maglaban, magkapatid kayo sa dugo
Kailan kayo magkakasundo, kapayapaa'y kailan matatamo ng bayan ko?

Kung ako'y may maitutulong, tutulong nang buong puso
Gitara ko'y aking inaalay, kung magkagulo'y gamitin mo
Kung ang kalaba'y walang puso, puso na rin ang gamitin mo
Ituring mong isang kaibigan
Isipin mong siya'y may puso rin katulad mo.

Coda:

Sa bayan kong sinilangan (bakit may gulo...)
Sa timog Cotabato (sa timog Cotabato)
Ako ay namulat (kailan matatapos...)
Sa napakalaking gulo (ang gulo)
Dahil walang respeto (kailan magkakasundo...)
Sa prinsipyo ng kapwa tao (ang tao)
Kapwa Pilipino (kapwa Pilipino...)
Ay kinakalaban mo (bakit kinalaban mo)
Ang gulo

    Ang awiting ito ay nagsasabi tungkol sa hindi pag kakaunawaan at hindi pag respeto ng relihiyon at prinsipyo. At bunga nito ay digmaan at pagpapatayan ng sariling magkakapatid na pilipino. Nakakalumong pakinggan subalit ganun talaga ang natural na katangian ng tao (human nature), ang sinasabi ng sciensya na makahayop na bahagi ng tao (animalistic nature or egoistic nature), na hindi natin mapagkakaila na natural sa ating mga tao, anuman o saan mang lahi tayo napabilang. Ganun paman, meron pa ring mga konting natitirang tao na my puso (altruistic nature or super ego) na andyan lang nananahimik, gumagalang, at tumutulong sa para sa kapayapaan at kaayusan ng bayan. Kaya mga kapatid kong pilipino, kayo na ang mamili kung saang panig kayo gustong mapabilang. Sa digmaan o kapayapaan, kamatayan o buhay.

    This song is giving us a lesson and giving us a wake-up call about the chaos and wars going on in the country.
    It starts out introducing his nation, cotabato, explaining that it's a chaotic place--then he starts saying that even though they're in this huge mess, they probably don't even know how it started, why it started, and how it's going to end. (they know that it's about their principles and religion, but they don't know why they're making such war with things like those.)
    He also said that maybe when you just respect each other, disregard each other's differences, empathize with other people--know that they're also people; they have hearts, just like you. The song says we are all brothers; "we" are all filipinos--we just need to help each other out. There was no need to fight.
    :) it's very deep; it should be sung to other countries as well--this doesn't apply to just filipinos, but to others too ^^
