Sleep Armed

by Kalahari Surfers

Prologue 00:54
Underground 02:56
---------------------- The power lines have fallen down there’s a curfew in the town I take your hand we must escape before it is too late we can hide out near a lake of poisoned water can you see how the smoke from burning houses hangs over the city and our leaders have all gone underground we head towards a mine shaft where some other refugees are organising shelter and resistance to the siege a message to the civilized red faces in the west bring your hammer and your bi-sickle and fix this bloody mess our leaders have all gone underground some children steal a motor car from soldiers it is seen through infra red binoculars images flash on a screen the technology is there to crush subversion everywhere but the spirit of resistance pregnates the atmosphere and our leaders have all gone underground.
This Land 03:29
Fraud City 03:16

I have to disappear a major business deal fell though something went wrong at ESKOM - take care of the kids all this I have done for you ,my dear, I took what I could our life will be good join me when you can rotten to the core corrupt the apple of your eye can't make ends meet can't satisfy can't deny connections with the east 4 million rand stashed away for better days away from home pull a sheet across your eyes don't pretend to be surprised take what you want put it in a suitcase head for Argentine east west south is best but please don't send me back to Fraud City "'n kommunis agter elke bos"
