Mandela’s Song
Verse 1:

Long before the day and night, collide into an eerie sight

That fills me with a longing for a storm

I lie awake in constant hope, that when it’s time

I do not choke, or fail to give what was given to me

Often I do not believe that I am really living free

I am a slave to all I want

Chorus 1:

Sail away on my ship, there I wait

Sail away on my ship, my body aches

Verse 2:

Follow the leaders now; follow them straight down to hell

All of us got blood on our hands

You’re innocent you swear to me, you did not do a thing

That is why nothing ever changed

People take, then they take, a little more they take

Until there’s nothing to give

Chorus 2:

Sail away on my ship, dare I stand

Sail away on my ship, I’m just a man

Sail away on my ship, there I wait

Sail away on my ship, I just can’t wait
