    "Nomzamo" Lyrics


    Look beyond the colour
    Past the covering on us, to see what we are
    Turn the faded pages
    The mark we leave on history, is what we are

    Every country is part of us
    Irrespective of the one where we grew up
    Yes, you are my sister
    Though we never shared a home, that's what you are

    And your eyes keep shining in the darkness
    Defying all the chains, that's what you are

    Home for the homeless, hope for the hopeless
    Between the lines on your face, I can read
    Nomzamo, Nomzamo

    They of the silk white breast, seemingly proud
    They are so much more less on the day of the vow
    Here's a woman who is tired and weary
    Leading resistance and still laying wreathes

    How can we stand by and watch this happen?
    Is this the justice we preach
    It seems too much to ask for an equal, peaceful living

    In a land of screams, stinging tears and broken smiles
    Following through all extremes
    'One who will suffer many trials'
    Is this a land to inherit?

    Crumbs on the table, the segregated people starve
    With gleeful oppression, the mindless procession
    Cast nonchalance out of their cars

    Somewhere, sometime we pay
    For the crimes we incessantly do
    If we believe, that we are what we leave
    I left a hope, what did you?

    Reeling from punches which leave them winded
    Reeling from laws which should be rescinded now
    Nomzamo, Nomzamo
