Eskom's done its thing again...
Because the ANC is still stealing
Screwing the country uuuup agaaaaain
And the money that is pouring down the drain
Causing the sounds
In restless dark we walked alone
Narrow lighting from our phones
'Neath the halo of Van Riebeeck's dream
Lost our way in the corruption stream
When our eyes were blighted by the flash of a Zuma light
Who stripped our rights
Launched on the grounds, of heartless.
And in the naked light I saw
Ten million people maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening
People writing songs
That voices never share
Disturb the mounds of finance.
Fool said I you do not know
Silence like a cancer grows
Hear these words that they might reach you
Free your mind that you may see it too
Let your words like thunder roll and fall
And echo the voice of people
And the people bowed enslaved
To the not on god they made
And the sense flashed their warnings
In the words of the load shedding
And the sign said the words of the masses are written on the e-toll walls
And township stalls
Into the sounds of silence...
