In the cities and the towns
The word is coming down
No more doubt, no more pain
There's been a dragging of the chain

But there's nothing left to feel
Empty heart down and out
Now the writer's can't explain
Why we're playing up again
No way out, no way down

Where is the hope of a clean tomorrow?
Hope only offers when justice is coming
Now is the time to heal

Where is the ground, the beloved country?
Women and men who have fallen silent
Where are the words that can speak forgiveness?
Now is the time
Now is the time
Now is the time to heal
