An Eden filled with buried dust by a hell's sky

An innocent lotion identical with Cain and Abel 

How do we say sorry to kunta who never saw freedom ray

Madiba left his breath to prepare table for others in front of hell's angel

Decades of strokes by the one who abuse our mouth with locks

Bed of roses wanders and walk aimlessly with no clue of our ancestors

Masters of whips like Santa Claus gave us beautiful gifts of bruises and scars

They pushed us from the floor to a pit of broken bottles and expect our bubbles

They sent the storms to inflict us, but we soar and rose above clouds

Our Sound, Our Spirit, Our Colour are the ingredients of everywhere survivors

Billions of houses few homes tell bricks to stop bragging home is built and made

Africa!!! Everybody knows everybody and everybody loves everybody, a here paradise
