lyrics

Minority Report (words: W.Sony & Lesego Rampolokeng)
-----------------------
There’s a noise downstairs - Put on your clothes
Somebody is breathing - Standing quite close
There’s a man in the darkness
I can feel his light
Don’t call security - I think it’s all right

“Pull in and pull out
to be born and not to die
with a bullet in the gut and lie and bleed
in the dirt and a cigarette that won’t light
and when it does smoke comes through the throat
‘cos that’s where the blade cut
and a siren in the head
and wait for dawn
knowing your days are gone”

You used to tell me there was nothing to fear
Give me direction - make sure it is clear
We’re always leaving - with nothing but fear
Across the sea - we’ve got a cross to bear
“your days are gone”
“…trying to stop all these guys coming to me.
They’re trying to shoot. Look here. Look here.
They shoot…trying to shoot …here..and other one is here….”
Journalist:”there were many bullets huh?”
Ya .. so many bullets”
