Baysabro

Song description:
Baysabro is the first single from Xarb’s debut album. In its simplest form, the song is anti-war. The lyrics are simple yet direct, and reflect the state of mind of an average person who has to face the consequences of conflict. War is a reality that we, as human beings living in any society, no matter how advanced or how downtrodden, will perhaps never be able to escape. The reasons and motives may vary, but the outcome is always the same. Baysabro is a wish to be rid of or, perhaps alternatively, come to terms with the effects of war and violence. Most of us living in bigger, more developed cities might not be directly impacted by what is happening around us, but the fact that war has ravaged this country and is eating away at our social conscience can no longer be ignored.
