the generals walk free : w.sony no-one knows what happened in the street the other day who drove the white toyota who looked the other way gunmen target unity the state machinery secret operatives the killing still goes on Now we have a general amnesty and all the Generals will walk free Golden handshake for the man who took the heat Killed 100 innocents killed them in their sleep We thought he’d sit for life Thought they throw away He’s living now in luxury in a mansion by the sea Now we have a general amnesty and all the Generals will walk free Big men from the government are talking to the press In the spirit of compromise in the shadow of death Victims, truth and evidence are casualties of war Camouflaged in confusion incognito, in transit Now we have a general amnesty and all the Generals will walk free
found voices: "Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen welcome aboard South African Airways Flight SA 664 to Port Elizabeth (returning for food) in preparation for take off please ensure that your seatbelt is fastened and that your seatback is in an upright position" "going away .... with the weapons inspector" "thank you for your attention and we wish you all a pleasant flight." -----------------------------------------------------------
Slow Speed 05:53
------------------------ lyrics: W.Sony you are breaking up.. More difficult to see.. Move closer to the source .. Of the energy I'm getting distorted points of view... A flickering screen.. An expanse, of blue Try again later.. When the traffic has died When it is safe to put up a signal outside. You are breaking up... And there is nothing i can do gonna rest a while before you come through ---------------------------------
