Force Publique


Lizard on a rock
In the midday sun
Moves into darkness
For protection
Snakes in the grass
In the land of the free
Take me to the river
Leave me in the sea
Lord is there something that I should see
Because the Belgians are paying me
To cut their hands from the rubber tree
You’re wasting your time with me.

Cries in the night
Through a canopy of trees
Dew on the ground
Drips from the leaves
Shadow on the lake
Crocodile tears
Mountains of the moon
The source of your smile

Lord is there something that I should see
Because the Belgians are paying me
To cut
their hands from
the rubber tree
You’re wasting your time with me.
