lyrics

Ayiseke lufwila makanda…

Who are the people that you may not ever heard of
And who are the people breaking out?
Who are the people that you really think deserve to be
Rulers of people in the South?
Who gives you rhythm that you may not never ever heard of
And who of the people wanna shout?
We prove it’s a given that you need to be observant
But who will take the path to higher ground?

They never stop and say… ”Hey the people are laughing!”
Just give us one more day… where the people are dancing

Who are the people that you’re totally in awe of
And who sees your being from without?
Who are the children that you choose to be deserving
Of school and the will to never doubt?
Who is this lady that you may not ever heard of
And who is this Siren from afar…?
She too gives you rhythm that you may not ever heard of
And truth takes you anyway you are.

They never stop and say… ”Hey the people are laughing!”
Just give us one more day… where the people are dancing

And you’ll find you way home…
Keep on rolling alone…
