All our lives
All of us
Whose bones you have
Climbed on
Were all our lives wasted?
Were we martyred
To finish with all forms of slavery
Forever
Only to witness our offspring
Complacent and bought off
With scraps
To see workmen and women divided?

O as we look about us
Things seem worse than ever
As we look about us
Things seem worse than ever
As we look about us
Things seem worse than ever
As we look about us
Things seem worse than ever
