Lyrics

Out of the dirt and up on our legs · We used to crawl but that’s hardly changed · Raped our sisters · Had our way with them · Ruled that we should rule · Called ourselves men ¶ Invented poetry · Impaired it with fame · Killed the poet to usurp his name · Distorted philosophy to further war · Man’s greatest feat would enslave us all ¶ Oh, how we love the shackles when we control the chains ¶ Destroy the man – Death to death ¶ Conceived the structures · Made up the rules · To our benefit we defined the tools · Worshipped ourselves and our own kind · Molded history in our own design ¶ Let’s destroy his story too · Let’s destroy and start something new ¶ Destroy the man – Death to death 366 ¶ Struggle with the current · Dragged down into the dark · No reward waiting · No salvation or ark ¶ Unseen borders · To protect the nation state · Sink like stones to the bottom · Not once a white man’s fate ¶ One final escape · Deported into the deep · 366 · Too many heroes for the hull to keep ¶ Upon a heartless sea · Where dreams come to die · Upon a heartless sea · Our willing sacrifice ¶ That’s someone’s sister · That’s someone’s son · I’ve got a sister · I’m someone’s son · I want a better life · and I’m not the only one ¶ As the waves come crashing · With the rejected and poor · Bodies upon bodies · They shall overcome no more ¶ So hail to the capital · That will set us free · Free to drown and free to die · To slave eternally ¶ Upon a heartless sea · Where dreams come to die · Upon a heartless sea · Our willing sacrifice ¶ That’s someone’s sister · That’s someone’s son · I’ve got a sister · I’m someone’s son · I want a better life · and I’m not the only one ¶ After forcing them to want our lives · We rip the honour from their sacrifice · We close our coffers and we close our eyes ¶ Dragged down by the weight of freedom · Dragged down by the loss of hope
