lyrics

CHILD SOLDIER ( L.Rampolokeng)
-----------------------------------
We are the inscription invisible on the heroes
memorial
locked in cerebral manacles we rattle our brains
unhinged intellects
how do you embalm a phantom?

After the phantom birth a new death is here
in the colours of the brain blow
leader of the revolution is feeder of assimilation
steward on the march to depravation
and we move
out of the gravy and into the stew
it's a short walk to the sewer

the rage turns in
implosion
disengage the enemy within
we raise no busts no declaration
no dogma we are dumb-arse-down and out of sight
but the red in the carpet is ours

disengage the enemy within

embalm a phantom
