Thank you, harp00n! I know this song by Erkin Koray, so I enjoyed hearing this different version very much. But you also introduced me to Orphaned Land, and I came across a Turkish version of one of their songs, and I liked it very much. The lyrics are important, I think. I hope you won´t mind if I post my translation attempt here.

Hepsi Bir -- All Are One

Işığın savaşçılarıyız, bu böyle bilinsin -- We are warriors of the light, let it be so known.

Susmayıp birlesip söyleriz, hep böyle söylensin -- We do not remain silent, we are united, we speak, always let it be said so.

Biz güneşin çocuklarıyız -- We are children of the sun.

Çöllerde gezer atlarımız -- Our horses wander in the deserts.

Kutsal sularda yürüsek de -- If we walk in the sacred waters,

Sönmez bu yangın içimizde -- Still this fire inside us does not go out.

Sıkılan yumruk mu, tutulan el mi? -- Is it a fist that is squeezed or a hand that is held?

Müslüman Yahudi, fark eder mi? -- Muslim or Jew, what difference does it make?

Bunca kan, bunca acı değer mi? -- Is so much blood, so much pain worth it?

Öteki diyen çok, bize -- The other one meaning much, to us,

Hepsi bir -- All are one

Hepsi bir -- All are one

Hepsi bir -- All are one

Hepsi bir -- All are one

Bilmediğinden nefret ederler -- They hate what they don´t know.

Yabancıya "Bizden değil" derler -- They think of the stranger, "He is not of us."

Soğuk namlunun ucundaki -- Is it possible to be someone´s brother 

Birinin kardeşi olabilir mi? -- At the point of a cold blade?

Ama sen yitirme ümidini -- But do not lose your hope.

Siyah ya da beyaz, fark eder mi? -- Black or white, what difference does it make?

Böyle bölerler bizi, aç gözunu -- In this way they divide us. Open your eyes.

Ayırma, dışlama bize hepsi bir -- Do not set apart, do not cast out. To us, all are one.

Hepsi bir -- All are one

Hepsi bir -- All are one

Yüzündeki namlu bir gerçek ama sen uzat çiçek -- The blade in your face is a reality, but hold out the flower.

Nefret önyargı hepsi lanet, -- Hate, prejudice, all are a curse.

Her biri geçecek -- Each one will pass.

Dövüşürken kardeşlerinle -- While struggling with your brothers,

Paylaşamadığın ne -- What can be shared?

Geçmişi unut yarını yaşayalım birlikte -- Forget what is past, forget tomorrow. Let us live together.

Geçmişi unut yarını yaşayalım birlikte -- Forget what is past, forget tomorrow. Let us live together.

Quoting MehmetK

all are one? or all is one?

 

which one is correct?

Are.

Allthough ´all are one´ is not really an expression that is used like that in English. You would say "we´re all one" or "we are one".
