Squad trivia

Post by CaZ »

Being a native Arab I was very struck by a beautiful Squad soundtrack called Lost Squad so I decided to dig a bit deeper and share my findings with you all.



Composed by: Scott Tobin

Vocals by: Farah Elle

Original song is very old and by one of Arabia's most famous musicians called Fairouz.

Lyrics - In phonetic English

Rajeen Rajeen Rajeen

el zahrat min masakin

Rajeen ya hawaa ealaa dar alhwa ealaa nar alhuaa rajeen

(can't make out the part after)

ealaa nar alhuaa

Rajeen

- In English (rough translation)

We are returning
We are returning
We are returning

You flower of the poor unfortunate ones

We are returning, oh love
To love's home
To the fire of love

We are returning..
----

In one of Scotts YouTube comments he said the translation is along these lines: "We are returning, from suffering. Returning through the air, in the fire of the air, we are returning" - Farah

Note: The original lyrics are more of poem about love, Farah appears to have changed and added a few words to the original lyrics in order to fit the actual theme of squad in the context of the Militia and Insurgent factions.

Hope you enjoyed this small piece of trivia :handgestures-salute:
