Sonya Kitchell – Soldier's Lament lyrics
He fight and he pray
He love and he bleed
To no satisfaction, was note as, indeed
And when he walks, stands tall as he can
For he's a man, yeah he's a man
And when he crumbles, resolve to the ground
Like burnt bits of paper, life flutters round
All eyes turn away, no one wants to see
A man who has lost, in the fight to be free
For we've been out runnin' for all of our lives
No chance, and stop, and we'd surely lose sight
In the back of his mind is a smiling face
The one who said, "Yah know, it's no race"
The one that said, "You got time to breathe"
Cuz' child you're born, we're all born free
In the back of he mind is the back of a room
So dust enshrouded, and no dust broom
Stands a chance to clear the cobwebs away
So live in the back, in the dark it'll stay
And we've been out runnin' for all of our lives
No chance, and stop, and we'd surely lose sight
Tell me somethin'
What are yah livin' for?
Tell me boy
What are you livin' for?
Tell me somethin'
What are yah livin' for?
Tell me, tell me
What are you livin' for?
