War and Crime

Lucky Dube

Everywhere in the world,
People are fighting for freedom
Nobody knows what is right,
Nobody knows what is wrong
The black man say it's the white man
The white man say it's the black man
Indians say it's the coloreds
Coloreds say it's everyone
Your mother didn't tell you the truth
Your father didn't tell you the truth
Nobody knows what is wrong
And what is right
How long is this gonna last
'Cause we've come so far so fast
When it started, you and I were not there
Why don't we......


Chorus:
Bury down apartheid
Fight down war and crime
Racial discrimination
Tribal discrimination (x2)


You and I were not there when it started
We don't know where it's coming from
And where it's going
So why don't we......


I am not saying this because I'm a coward
But I'm thinking of the lives that we loose
Every time we fight
Killing innocent people
Women and children yeah
Who doesn't know about the government
Who doesn't know about wars
Your mother didn't tell you the truth
'Cause my father didn't tell me the truth
The black man say it's the white man
The white man say it's the black man
Indians say it's the coloreds
When it started we were not there
We know where we come from but we don't know
Where we're going so
Why don't we......


Chorus:
Bury down apartheid
Fight down war and crime
Racial discrimination
Tribal discrimination (x2)
