    I am not one to speak but...
    Burning cars, shuffling children, imprisoned spirit
    No freedom only pain
    violation of pure minds
    Angry youth oppressed before birth
    Only wishing to be -
    Numb
    Suffering so long, salvation seems like a distant dream
    - Lifeless -
    Deranged thoughts, the only voices, the sole memories
    of childhood sucked out of her, beaten out of him
    Blood stained hands - their brothers' blood
    800,000 children of Soweto did not forget
    How could they?
    'Mama, I'm sorry' everyone of them said to their mothers
    'You were right tata'
    I am not one to speak but...
    The nation cried, I wasn't there
    Innocent fallen souls corrupted with hate of an inhuman kind
    An absurd human concept that blinded eager minded pseudo revolutionaries
    Lessons were taught, wars fought, heroic humility descended
    Peace dwelled amongst hearts
    The prison door opened and divine light shone on that Island
    They were waiting for Mandela
    He was there
    I'm not one to speak but...
    THAT is history
    They sang FREEDOM IS COMING
    Redemption is here
    And still we rise!​
