GUNSHIP GHETTO

 

Gunship ghetto - steeleye stiletto

Feather pillow dream

Crazy boy your sister’s crying

Tell me where the hell have you been

Border order prison warder

Mortar bomb daughter scream

Gunship ghetto - steeleye stiletto

Mama it was kill or be killed

 

I’m going away to where history won’t reach me

To where time stands still

I need to find some peace of mind

And if you let me in I probably will

 

CHORUS:

Speak to the sky, there’s no reply

Just the endless empty blue

While deep in the night, there is a fight

And a struggle that rages within the heart

 

Hamba Madoda! Aya hamba madoda (March away men - the men are marching away)

Sodibana pambiliyo sodibana phambili yo! (We will meet up ahead)

 

Paper holder holds a soldier

Not yet born to be

But six months older he’ll be much bolder

See thing’s he’s never seen

I need freedom just like the next one

But sometimes it doesn’t do

‘Cause I need you to be there

When I’m troubled

I need to see this thing through with you

 

Behind the barrel of a gun, love and friendship can become

Just another point of view

The battle is won but my heart overcome

Cause what is lost is part of you

 

CHORUS:

Hamba madoda - aya hamba madoda (March away men - the men are marching away)

I’m just marching away - just marching away

What do you say - I’m just marching away

 

Sebehambile hambile (They have all gone, all gone)

Sebehambile hambile

Umhlaba unzima sodibana phambili yo! (The world is a difficult place - we shall meet up ahead)

Umhlaba unzima sodibana phambili yo!
