found voices from South african movies:

"My God what‘s that -
I‘ve never heard anything like it
it comes on so bloody fast"
'They won't get away from "
"I ’ only me boy"
"Quiet please"
They won't get away from us
Lekker, lekker man kyk al die tierlantyntgies,
dit lyk vir my na 'n Krismus boom"
(Lovely, lovely man look at all the decorations, it looks like a Christmas tree)
Alive you did say alive d1dn't you"
there s a phone call for Jeff
"And because he's alive and beautiful
you want to kill him
there‘s a phone call for Jeff
you want to kill him
"Dit gaan 'n ongeluk wees"
(There s golng to be an accident)
Aksie' (Action)
"Because I don't get my kicks out of the destruction of
beautiful things
Like two beautiful world wars"
Have a nice lunch (mmm very)
hey, lovely evening nice sunset'
Take your pills and wash your bloody little hands before bedtime"
" look at the colours in he sky there over the guns"
Ah, beautiful mmm"
Take your pills"
’Moenie so bekomerd lyk nie, dokter"
(Don’t look so worried doctor)
'Moenie my skiet nie
ek vra jou, moenie asseblief kan nie my skiet"
(Don't shoot me, I am asking,you please, don't shoot)
'Hoekem sny jy
Asseblief Jy gaan nie my skiet, gaan Jy"
(Why did you cut -
Please, you’re not going to shoot me are you?)

lyrics:
Europeans (w.sony_ performed by Roger Lucy)

We come from across the sea in wooden ships our scurvy eyes scour this new land a flat topped mountain rises through mist we are europeans and claim this land searching for treasure prepared for war we march beneath a sacred cross setting up frontiers against barbarity with new weapons we beat them back their villages we burn their Gods lost their powers their women we rape the victory is ours
we are Europeans our hearts are on fire
but we can't stand the pulse of the drums at night
can't sleep with this creeping fear
what sorcery is this
how can they march to such a weird beat
---------
movie voices:
" I'd hate to see any of them escape"
"I mean why not do it properly;finish the job off
Let's use gas ,let's bomb them
What makes you want to do it"
