lyrics

Salvation

Blood runs through our villages
Burns a path through the mud
Shots ring out... to start of a new day
The fight of flight walks with a gun
There’s no way out, there’s no way out...
We’ve taken all we can take
Just show me a path not destroyed in the past

Salvation waits for me my way...
Salvation waits for me my way...

Centuries have past since we walked free
The Dutch and British both claimed our home
Enslaved and encaged, our destiny betrayed

Salvation waits for me my way...
Salvation waits for me my way...

It seems so close
But it feels so far
How far have we come to be shot down in the street
A new age is dawning The horizon is changing

Salvation waits for me my way...
Salvation waits for me my way...

I walk through the streets of Soweto and Capetown
Fires burn through the night
Daylight creeps in to this endless night
Casts a glimpse of a brighter day

Salvation waits for me my way...
Salvation waits for me my way...
Salvation will come one day
