LYRICS

GENERATION (Lyrics)

This track is a song which I dedicated to the memory of Hector Peterson who must have been the first child to be killed by the guns of Apartheid in South Africa.

CHORUS

It is a generation Who need you, who need your attention
It is a generation Who seek you, who seek your redemption
‘Cos early in the morning – The sun is shining bright in a land of sadness
And I am really wondering – Maybe you and I could give a little bit of gladness

Living in a compound behind barbed wire fences
The policeman will fire rounds to save their own defenses
Good men, women and children have fallen down dead
As red hot bullets are buried in their heads….

CHORUS

Show me freedom – in oppression
Where is democracy – in repression?
Rip offs anonymous — Bloodsuckers ravenous
Rapists unlimited — The system of their reign

Brother listen, you can come close in the name of the Lord
Yet my brother still I know — I know where I am coming from
No more tolerance for evil — No more indifference,
Must become the image of the One who died to save this age.

CHORUS

Generation…

GO SEE (Lyrics)

Go see for yourself, Go see for yourself

I hear the trumpet sound — blasting clean and loud
Calling to young and old  —  Cos the time is right like we’ve been told

They rose from shackles, prepared their feet for battles
And they will run all night to take what’s theirs

We pay the price, probably we will pay again
In the bitter-sweet struggle there must be no compromise
So I say…

CHORUS

Go see for yourself, go see for yourself
Don’t wait for me, See it for yourself — Go see for yourself

The sun is breaking through — reaching out for me and you
No need to stand, don’t’ stand still now
Fetch your sisters and your brothers and show them how

CHORUS

HEAR THIS VOICE (Lyrics)

Where is the DJ? — Where is the song?
Midnight comrade, can you play me a tune?
Where is the singer? We have waited so long
Musical healer, what has happened to you?

Where is the pillar we should be leaning upon?
Midnight pillar of fire, show me where I belong
‘Cos ordinary people, we have to pay again
These endless taxes, I say backs will break again.

We will sing this song till the night goes out
Oh year, until the night goes out.
We will play this one til the day comes in
Oh year, until the day comes in, in, in, in, again

We will play this one until the night goes out
and the day comes tumbling in
We sing it along, sing the very same song
We play it again, yes again and again

Money dealers screw the people so tight
Stone cold leaders come and take their own bite
So where is the symbol, yes of freedom and light
Light of Eden, I pray, lead us out of this place.

Whoa, we will song this song till the night goes out
Oh yeah, until. the night goes out
We will play the one til the day comes in
Yeah, until the day comes in, in, in, in again.

We will sing it again, yes again and again
We will play it along — play the very same song
Until they change their faces, maybe catch these faces
Until they change their faces, maybe catch these faces.

Until they hear this voice…

PALACE (Lyrics)

Where has your love gone? Where has your love gone?
I can’t see it, I can’t feel it
Tell me, tell me, where has your love gone?

This generation – people — This generation – people
This generation – suffering people, people, people

Think of a nation – people — Think of a nation – people
Think of a nation – people, one world, people, one world.

Where is your Love? Show me your love
Where is your love, love, love, love?
Where is your love? Show me your love
Where is your love, love love, love?

Slave drivers and the government have won
See the people fall in the field
Why do you always justify wrong?
Tell me, tell me, where has your love gone?

Revolution, revolution is what we need
Stop the people suffering silently
Hear the battle cry outside I say
Rebel wagon, please let me in

This generation – people === This generation – people
This generation – suffering people, people, people

Think of a nation – people — Think of a nation – people
Think of a nation – people, one world, people, one world.

Teacher, what is it you say?
Speak to me again about one people, one people
Talk to me in the morning– Talk to me in the night
This generation, suffering people, people, heh!

One World — See a table a-turning, see a people arise
Generation – people
I say a table a-turning, I see a people arise
This generation, people, people, heh!

RAISE YOUR CONSCIENCE (Lyrics)

Raise your conscience high – And be alive again my brothers
Raise your conscience high – To be alive
Raise your conscience high – To fight this fight again my sisters
Raise your conscience high – To win a fight.

They will break into your living room – The uniformed man is drunk with power
They will search and then batter you – The children wake up and run for cover
Terrorising your neighborhood — “Cos this household is now suspicious
Though your work and your labour good
You soon find out these people fastidious.

Raise your conscience high.

Round the corner something explodes — The Indian family runs from a fire
Run from home into the cold — Run run family, run from a fire
The people cry and they cry again
The government never ever caught in this fire
But we won’t stop — Until we reach the top
They must share — This pain and fear
‘Cos Almighty on High is by your side.

Dawn breaks at Parliament hill — The coffee made ready before dem wake
First item upon this bill — The Chief Constable gets a golden shake
Well my people that is a farce — You see them smile
You see through this plastic — A generation caught in a cage
We’ve been through that stage but we’re well and truly past it.

Raise your conscience high.

LYRICS

TELL ME WHY (Lyrics)

Life short and simple — colour divides it
Tell me why?
We need peace to raise our children, but wind up waging wars
Tell me why?
The woman works all day, but the man gets more pay
Tell me why?

CHORUS

Tell me why, why, oh why? Tell me why, why, oh why?
Tell me why, why, oh why? Tell me why, why, oh why?

If God is peace and love and you kill another in His name
Tell me why?
The old man gave his “all”,but don’t fit ’round here no more
Tell me why?
In a world needing love,we run from one another
Tell me why?

Bububu. Please….

CHORUS

Now all the people in the house say “Yeah”
‘Cos we want no more trouble
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!

All the children in the school and the people at home
And the people in their working places say
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!
Skubidu, skubidu, skubidu pa pa

‘Cos we want no more trouble — want no more trouble Yeah!

The Kingdom suffers violence, the violence takes it all —
It’s been said
Police in the street, bandits swell their breed
People heave to find some safety
Guns in the playground, young lives for a shot
Tell me why?

Mercy, mercy, mercy, mercy

CHORUS

LYRICS

LIVING IN A SUITCASE (Lyrics)

Take a look out your window — I wait for you to come and play
One step down here below — Instead you gone ‘n hide

You’re living in a suitcase  — I see the marks upon your face
Preservation of your one-track mind  – Is the danger I fear for my love

I wait for you, love takes lives in the street
I aim for you, I need your warmth inside of me

CHORUS

Living in a suitcase — Living in a suitcase, you are
Living in a suitcase — Living in a suitcase, you are

It hurts, it hurts, it hurts, it hurts to see you run
Run away from the tragedy — The devil’s gave my street, yeah

I wait for you, love takes lives in the street
I aim for you, I need your warmth inside of me

Living in a – living in a suitcase
Living in a – living in a suitcase — suitcase, suitcase, suitcase, you are

I’ve got to say it just one more time — we make a date just one more time
‘Cos if you really have love for me — Brother, you got to make me see

I wait for you, love takes lives in the street
I am for you, I need your warmth inside of me

CHORUS

You’re living in a suitcase, yeah
You sit so neat in your foxy gear, yeah
You look so sweet in your fancy suit, yeah
You’re liv-you’re liv you’re living in a suitcase, yeah

Oh, stop your living in a suitcase
