African Holocaust

I and I have survived the past

African Holocaust

Don't you know we were meant to last

 

Some people say we got to move on

What's in the past has now been long time gone

You think what you've got is your freedom

But all it means is to be FREE and DUMB

 

Chorus

 

So much tears so much pain and indignity

It's truly wonderous how we came through slavery

Now we bare the scars some say we'll never heal

Worst injustice to mankind is very real

 

Chorus

 

When it comes to the system a we still the victims

Of isms and schisms of ugly racism

The beatings, the lynchings, the shootings, the killings

They say its finger licking Kentucky Fried Chicken

Head on the chopping block

When will it ever stop

Struggle to reach the top

Waiting for us to flop

 

Chorus

 

Took our language, stole our gold,

Gave us religion to lose our souls

In this confusion, we will find our way

In this great future, in Jah we praise

 

Chorus
