Determined to Tell Lies

Determined to tell lies
People are able only to tell the truth -
Said Rahman

I said -
Leave aside truth and lies
People only speak

And what about people who don't speak -
Asked Rahman -
What do they say?

I said -
You know religion, Rahman,
I don't say a thing

[Hata Bildir]
