You said you'd be there for me
In times of trouble when I need you and I'm down
And like why do you need friendship
It's from my side pure love but I see lately things have been changing
You have goals to achieve
But the road you take abroad and heartless that wants you make another way
You throw stones
Can't you see that I am human I am breathing
But you don't give a damn

Chorus
Can't you feel my heart is beating
Can't you see the pain you're causing
Can't you feel my heart is beating
Can't you see the pain you're causing

Blood blood blood... keeps rushing

And now the world is asleep
How will you ever wake her up when she gets deep in the dreams, wishing
And yet so many die
And still we think that it is all about us
It's all about you
You sold your soul to the evil and the lust
And the passion and the money and you
And the same ones die, and people hunger for talking,
Suffer under civilized damn robbers but they stabled us

Chorus
Can't you feel my heart is beating
Can't you see the pain you're causing
Can't you feel my heart is beating
Can't you see the pain you're causing

Blood blood blood... keeps rushing

Invaded, eliminated, erased, interrogated
Our tradition, our love for our fellow countrymen,
Our property, our ancestors - have died

Can you feel, can you feel my heart beating?

Chorus
Can't you feel my heart is beating
Can't you see the pain you're causing
Can't you feel my heart is beating
Can't you see the pain you're causing

    It's all one and the same. We all start dying from the moment we first breath air. We are human and we have been given the priveledge to make our own choices and ultimate decisions in life... It's up to us to change the outcome of eternity...

    There is so much pain, hatred and suffering in the world that it has even corrupted the ones we trust and love and our heartbeats are faded in the silence.

    Someone you trusted with so much in you that when they gave you a reason not to trust in them any more, you almost lose yourself. Your heart beats... In pain. Acknowledging the disappointments faced, the love that is lost and the hope that we still hand onto.

    This is a little bit of my take on this amazing song. *mapenzi. Love*

    I think its about people in the world who, over time become corrupted in their strive to achieve their own goals. They for get to treat other people like they are people.
