WHEN THE SYSTEM HAS FALLEN

 

Sweat in the heat for days on end

waiting for you to come again

to hear the words spill from your lips

“the system has fallen”

 

Mass action on the radio

like a great river ebbs and flows

carrying us to the final close when

the system has fallen

 

I know you are tired and weary

seen too much to believe anymore

but we have to keep moving down that long road

if we want to reach that far shore

 

CHORUS:

We’re on our way home to find our freedom

and I’m on my way home to find you my friend

where we can stand in the light of the people

and breath life into the land again

SIYATHEMBA, SIYATHEMBA KUWENA NKOSI

SIZO FIKA EMA KHAYA.

(we are still hoping and we still believe, that we will reach our final destination)

 

Hey!  You!  If you dance in the shadows

the shadows will cover you

and paralyze all the hope in your eyes

that you’ll need to bring you shining through

Could you believe I am your brother?

Could you believe I could be a friend?

And although I don’t know the language you speak

we could be closer than you have ever dreamt.

 

CHORUS:

 

NGIZOBEKA PHANSI UKU ZONDANA KWAMI

(I will put down my hatred)

NGIZOBEKA PHANSI IZENZI ZEGAZI

(I will lay down my acts of revenge)

NGIZOXOLELANA NEZITHA ZAMI WEMADODA

(I will forgive my enemies)

SIZOFIKA EMAKHAYA - and will reach our homes

I’m on my way, on my way, on my way

to find you my friend.
