Country aflame by LFS

South Africa is burning
The people are hurting
South Africa is dying
The people are screaming

Racial this
Democracy
Hatred that
Democracy

Constant reminders
Corruption
Crime
Poverty

Why must the people suffer?
For their masters mistakes
Why do people starve?
While their masters drive BMW’s

We hate each other
We steal from each other
We murder each other
But don’t we all bleed red?

Are we not brothers?
Are we not siblings?
This is our country
This is OUR mother land!

South Africa is burning!
Someone save us!
South Africa is dying!
Let’s save ourselves!
