Baleka uzohaqwa!

(Escape before you are injured!)


(Too late he is injured!)

Webaba sicel’impilo

(Father, give us life, save our lives)


At the end of all bloody human storms

As the last flames and embers glow

We peer up into the wounded sky

And search for a human rainbow

And in the fading light I wonder why

We can never free it from the sky


Wangitshela lendaba

(You have told me of this thing)

I can see it but never be it, until I free it

from the sky




Same old human story

The saddest winds do blow

While we are trapped in the language of dark history

Underneath a human rainbow


And angry young man draws in the air

Political equations

But time corrupts the fruit they bare

And leads to more desperation

While in the sky - It’s a trick of the light

Shine the colours of all creation





(I will tell you, that’s how it is).
