    Lyrics

    Amambuka, amambuka azothengisa izwe lakithi, izwe lakithi

    He was taken in the night
    They came without any warning
    No time to hide or fight
    They came like bees aswarming
    The questions start to fly
    Will he break or will he defy?
    Can he withstand the worst that is to come?
    A child in a man's clothing
    Resisting the fascist' ploy
    The underground puts iron in the heart of any boy
    Swimming in a sea of pain, he knows this is the end
    He hears himself whisper the name of his best friend

    I never betrayed you, and I never betrayed the revolution
    I just didn't want to die alone, I needed you to see me home
    And if I could save you, and if I could find a solution
    I would die a thousand times, to get you out of here

    Sharing the same cold cell
    Betrayer and betrayed
    An island with two frightened castaways
    Not a word is spoken,
    How can he explain?
    Through swollen eyes they watch the dawn's first rays
    It's all over now
    They stand backs to the wall
    Waiting for the fascist's sword to fall
    In the desperation of a young life about to end
    He turns before the bullet
    And forgives a friend

    I never betrayed you, and I never betrayed the revolution
    I just didn't want to die alone, I needed you to see me home
    And if I could save you, and if I could find a solution
    I would die a thousand times, to get you out of here
