African Skyline Lyrics

There's a warrior searching for lines in the sand
But the footprints of time have erased
All the tracks from the land

There's a woman who's waiting by the side of a shack
With paint on her face and the sun on her back
She's dreaming of friendship, she's hoping for love
But suffering, hunger and black is all she understands

African skyline
African skyline

There's a lioness standing, she's sniffing the air
She's afraid that a fire is raging somewhere on the
She's afraid that the soldiers with guns will come back

No one can remember who started this war
Few comprehend whatever they died for
The guerrillas are sponsored by men with an appetite
for pain
All they desire is the blood of the slain
It's a struggle for unlawful profits and gain

African skyline
African skyline

Your leaders are lying
Your children are dying

African skyline

The trails of the fighters are stretching like scars
As the screams of their victims reach up to the stars
There's nowhere to hide, there's no blanket to warm you
No peace from the village, no eyes of the storm
You can run, you can flee
You can stumble and fall, or you can fight

The cease fire will end with a slaughter by dawn's
early light

African skyline
African skyline

Your leaders are lying
Your children are dying
Your hunters are shooting
Your tsotsis are looting

African skyline
African skyline
African skyline
