experts in white middle-class waiver Eyüp sen de gel

een stuk hiçbir zaman krediet silenced komaf wij

median teferruat symbolisme ootmoedig door kafaya bak

waarde so Republican zo vilein ve er gaat het nieuwe

ne ben pratiği vasthoudend aan postpolitieke of

dood kind demeyin officiallly loving representatie

artık olan oscileert you want rights oohoo sardonisch

commercial sonrası ons terrorisme klopt cervelaat

intellectual yesinler o zaman on rifle verkiezing

met al uw might and uh you know çok din fantazesi

poetics of küresel demiştim sana plosieven ki

onteigening van molotov atışı through appearance

Cizre euphemism meeting de architectuur van nu

başbakan barricades net als ons quote unquote

kiss your peaceheads bize ne gating fencing air

inmiddels bevestigd türk müsün therefore he is

go in horizontaal met modern weaponry zira
