Sien Jy Nou

Flash is required!

My vere word gepluk meneer
My woorde word gesluk meneer
My arm word gedraai meneer
My kinders afgemaai meneer
My wese word geruk meneer
My mense gaan gebuk meneer
My vryheid word verswelg meneer
My skuld word nooit gedelg meneer

Die liefde het gewyk meneer
Dis haat net waar jy kyk meneer
My dae word stadig afgetel en
elkeen bring ‘n nuwe hel
My deure word gesluit meneer
My spore word gestuit meneer
My stem is 'n masjiengeweer
Meneer

Sien jy nou?

My strome is nou stil meneer
My mense het geen wil meneer
My diere lê vermink meneer
My beker is geskink meneer
My land is kaal geskeer meneer
Gestroop voor ek kon keer meneer
Met hande skurf en kaal sê ek
Meneer

Sien jy nou?

My hart is ‘n hotel meneer
Jou sente vir my vel meneer
My kop ‘n kattedraal waar my
Verlede doelloos dwaal meneer
Die vensters tot my siel meneer
Is stukkend en verniel meneer
My lied weerklink vir ewig in die niet

Sien jy nou?

My feathers are being plucked, sir
My words are being swallowed, sir
My arm is being twisted, sir
My children are mowed down, sir
My being is shaken, sir
My people are being oppressed, sir
My freedom is being swallowed up, sir
My debt is never repaid, sir

Love has dissipated, sir
Hate just where you look, sir
My days are being numbered, and
each one brings a new hell
My doors are being locked, sir
My tracks are being blocked, sir
My voice is a machine gun
Sir

Do you see now?

My streams are now silent, sir
My people have no will, sir
My animals lay maimed, sir
My cup has been spilt, sir
My land has been stripped barren, sir
Stripped before I could stop it, sir
My hands roughed up and barren I say
Sir

Do you see now?

My heart is a hotel, sir
Your pennies for my skin, sir
My head a cathedral where my
Past dwells aimlessly, sir
The windows to my soul, sir
Are broken and damaged, sir
My song resounds forever into oblivion

Do you see now?
