This page includes both the original(2014) and the 2022 versions of the music video for the song “Save Ukraine” by the Ukrainian artist “БАК”. Subtitles were done already 6 years ago, but I decided to never publish. Due to the current invasion of Ukraine by Russia, I’ve decided to finally publish it. If I am honest, it’s a good reminder for people that the war didn’t start this year, but already did in 2014. Only the full invasion is what started this year.

Notes:
One part of the lyrics was changed due to grammar issues and it being easily misheard for the rewritten version.

References:
The name “Heavenly Hundred” refers to the participants killed during Euromaidan.

Lyrics:

I know the world sees this disease we are surviving.
And sees the reason we are fighting (simply) a tyrant.
And still some leaders act like they wait for his pangs of conscience.
Alright, then I’ll try something that’ll work out way more likely.
So I refer to all the magicians and psychics:
if you can influence matter remotely, that is so exciting.
I’m not asking to assassinate the tyrant – no more dying!
Please just have him buried alive by the Heavenly Hundred.
I say “Thanks!” to USA.
And as for Europe leaders…
…if I’m no more here when you hear it,
you know who did this.
And thank you for judging him,
it really makes us feel much better;
it’s just a little bit like judging an attacking alligator.
People all of over the world give us their heart support.
Lights are on and lies are shown.
Now what? You think he’ll just go?
We’ve proved we’d do anything
for changes for the better.
So why not to have a stronger friend instead of a stronger dictator?
You can help to save Ukraine.
Save Ukraine, save Ukraine.
You can help ’cause any day for someone it can be late.
You can help to save Ukraine.
Save Ukraine, save Ukraine.
If the tyrant goes to hell in any way,
you’ll help yourself.
I’m just saying we should be together and be real partners;
to tell all the crazy suckers to take off and never touch us.
We should be a real part of Europe,
mentally we are in it.
It’s just we had a government that was hardly covering it.
’cause it was a syndicate of that same dictator.
They could only rob and say that all would be better later.
They could hit you to the face,
just for any case.
Faking hate to Russian people,
having their brains washed up.
Making up that we are evil,
that we’re fascists, that’s enough!
So when the leaders count the likely profits of their countries;
do they take into account risks of working with a psycho?
And as for us, we risk lives for the land we live on.
What else must we do to finally be believed in?
So if you really want to help to make the world a better place;
one of the most effective steps is to help to save Ukraine.
You can help to save Ukraine.
Save Ukraine, save Ukraine.
You can help ’cause any day
for someone it can be late.
You can help to save Ukraine.
Save Ukraine, save Ukraine.
If the tyrant goes to hell in any way, you’ll help yourself.
