Victims

“Victims”
By Lucky Dube

Didn’t know she was crying
Until now as she turns to look at me
She said boy o’boy you bring tears to my eyes
I said what, she said
Boy o’boy you bring tears to my eyes

Bob Marley said
How long shall they kill our prophets
While we stand aside and look
But little did he know that
Eventually the enemy
Will stand aside and look

While we slash and kill
Our own brothers
Knowing that already
They are the victims of the situation

Still licking wounds from brutality
Still licking wounds from humiliation
She said all these words and the
Wrinkles on her face became
Perfect trails for the tears and she said;

[Chorus: x3]
We are the victims everytime
We got double trouble everytime

She took me outside to the churchyard
Showed me graves on the ground
And she said;
There lies a man who fought for equality
There lies a boy who died in his struggle
Can all these heroes die in vain

While we slash and kill our own brothers
Knowing that already they are the
Victims of the situation
Still licking wounds from brutality
Still licking wounds from humiliation

[Chorus: till fade]

Lucky Dube
