Oh Steve Biko
He was born in South Africa
He died in a jail cell
A political prisoner

The Yankees and the UK
Are filling you with finance
How sweet is your sugar
How bright are your diamonds

It's a fascist regime South Africa
A fascist regime South Africa

(He ain't dead) it could have been so peaceful
(He ain't dead) cos black and white are equal
(He ain't dead) black armies are invading
(He ain't dead) there's gonna be a showdown

You can't blame the black man
For telling you he hates you
You take away his homeland
And you say he doesn't live there

Oh South Africa
Have you got a conscience
To the soldiers watching
And the soldiers waiting

It's a fascist regime South Africa
A fascist regime South Africa

(He ain't dead) it could have been so peaceful
(He ain't dead) cos black and white are equal
(He ain't dead) black armies are invading
(He ain't dead) there's gonna be a showdown

It's a fascist regime South Africa
A fascist regime South Africa

(He ain't dead) it could have been so peaceful
(He ain't dead) cos black and white are equal
(He ain't dead) black armies are invading
(He ain't dead) there's gonna be a showdown
