[Clandestine recording of crowd during Steve Biko's funeral]
Lo mhla sibuyayo
Lo mhla sibuyayo
Lo mhla sibuyayo, laphalal igazi!
Kuyokhal uMbayimbayi!
Kuyokhal uVorster!
Lo mhla sibuyayo, laphalal igazi!
Kuyokhal uMbayimbayi!
Kuyokhal uVorster!
Lo mhla sibuyayo, laphalal igazi!
Lo mhla sibuyayo
Lo mhla sibuyayo
Lo mhla sibuyayo, laphalal igazi!


September '77
Port Elizabeth weather fine
It was business as usual
In police room 619
Oh Biko, Biko, because Biko
Oh Biko, Biko, because Biko
Yehla moja, yehla moja
- The man is dead
The man is dead

When I try to sleep at night
I can only dream in red
The outside world is black and white
With only one colour dead

Oh Biko, Biko, because Biko
Oh Biko, Biko, because Biko
Yehla moja, yehla moja
- The man is dead
The man is dead

You can blow out a candle
But you can't blow out a fire
Once the flames begin to catch
The wind will blow it higher

Oh Biko, Biko, because Biko
Yehla moja, yehla moja
- The man is dead
The man is dead

And the eyes of the world are
Watching now
Watching now

Senzeni na? Senzeni na?
Senzeni na? Senzeni na?
Senzeni na? Senzeni na?
Senzeni na? Senzeni na?
