Hello brothers and sisters, We are Indonesia Bersatu, a punk rock band from Medan, Indonesia. We are here again to entertain you and also share the music video that we played in the Hive #OpenMic community which has entered its 127th week. So, this week's theme is “Tevazu” which means “Humility-Modesty” and has been chosen by spotlight artist @okayozdemiroglu This is a good and very interesting theme because, in this world, it is very rare to find someone who has such a humble attitude.

Many people in this world are arrogant because they have something they are proud of, be it wealth, good looks, or knowledge. What they are proud of and have is only superficial and temporary. The possessions, good looks, and knowledge they have will not be held forever. Because of them, I, and all of us will go through a phase of death. With the death of the body, there is nothing left to us.

This is the importance of humility. People who have a humble attitude will share anything with those in need, both material and knowledge. Even though one day we will die, however, what we have given sincerely, will continue to be useful. On the other hand, if we are arrogant and have no humility, towards death we will grieve and regret. Even after death, others will laugh at our arrogance. Therefore, the song we play today is a song called “Persembahanku” which means “My Offering” from “Bunga Hitam”. We dedicate this song to arrogant humans who do not have humility.

Lyric in Indonesian

“Ku persembahkan setangkai bunga hitam
Lambang nurani terkelam
Yang tak pernah mampu mewarnai hidupmu
Kenangan terindah untukmu

Kau seorang hebat tersohor
Yang mampu ber-retorika
Menguasai penghafalan buku
Pencipta, pelempar isu

Kau dirikan kerajaan pendusta
Tonggakmu orang bodoh
Dengan anjing penjilat di kanan kirimu
Tuk mengekalkan keinginanmu

Ku persembahkan setangkai bunga hitam
Lambang nurani terkelam
Yang tak pernah mampu mewarnai hidupmu
Kenangan terindah untukmu

Bunuhlah bunga hitamku ini
Bila tak kunjung layu
Agar aroma wangi bunganya
Tak mengganggu deru nafasmu”

Lyrics in English

"I offer a black flower
The symbol of the darkest conscience
Who can never colour your life
The most beautiful memories for you

You are a famous great
Those who can use rhetoric
Mastering book memorization
Creator, issue thrower

You founded a kingdom of liars
Your milestone fool
With licking dogs on your left and right
To perpetuate your wish

I offer a black flower
The symbol of the darkest conscience
Who can never colour your life
The most beautiful memories for you

Kill this black flower of mine
If it doesn't wither
So that the fragrance of the flowers
Don't disturb your breath"

Lyric Source


The song was released in 2004, in collaboration with Warriors Records and Anti Music to distribute cassette tapes at several rock merchandise stores.

The place where we recorded this video at my room, which is located on Jl. Sei Deli, Medan City, Indonesia. We recorded it using a Cannon brand mirrorless camera. For the sound produced, I edited using Adobe Audition CC to reduce noise in the sound recording, and the final process of editing the video was using Adobe Premiere Pro CC software. That's all we can say, hope you like it and thank you. Peace to all of us.

Below is their original version of the song

My Brother, it's great to dedicate a song precisely to those who are the opposite of what we seek to enhance in the world... it's nice to hear you again and in that great acoustic format; always said that playing like this generates a beautiful connection with the majority and you always achieve it, you are always happy, smiling and having a good time 🤜🤛!!!

I really liked the lyrics of the song, it certainly describes those people who dehumanize themselves and put their personal interests above anything and anyone....

Bringing a song with this perspective was very good my brothers, besides that you did brutal as always 🔥🔥🔥🔥... I congratulate you, let's continue making good music, a hug for you, don't forget that... You Rockkk!!! 👊😎🔥🎙️🎸🎶❤️🌟🍻💥💫💯
