Black Coffee - SA Rising lyrics

[Hook] Kudala besicindezela (x2) If we cant help ourselves Who's gonna help us, who's gonna help us Uyangibambezela, uyangibambezela Ooh don't be selfish Buya buya zwelami [Verse 1] Tell me where we going, tell me where we going I think we loosing it, we need some direction moving forward This aint the same rainbow nation ka Mandela as we know it The citezens are really getting fed up if you noticing You see the country depreciating at a rapid pace Some folks are immigrating tryna get away We need to continue praying for a better day Hope this message can go all the way up to the head of state Dear Mr President, with everything happening in the country Hope you understand why some of your residents are panickin Can be challenging to be patriotic emzansi sometimes When you look at the shenanigans in the cabinet Pretty evident how political egos have a negative element In economic development of the nation Before exiting as the president I believe you still have power to swing the pendulum for the better chorus [Verse 2] Show my appreciation For all different colours of the rainbow nation, yeah You know we need each other You know we feed each other But I wanna take this moment To speak to my brothers and sisters In the spectrum of my fellow people of color Why are we so divided, can you tell me why are we so divided We could be stronger if we were more united A lot of hate is ignited in our hearts When we see a neighbor doing well But as soon as he fails we get excited Gotta get up and play your position and play your position In 2017 you shouldn't be playing victim Instead of making excuses you should be making decisions On how to change your condition. Blaming the system wont be making a difference It's embarra**ing how we notorious for prejudice On fellow Africans when they came over here to make a living Laziness should be your phobia But why are you simply resorting to xenophobia, mntom'nyama [Hook] Kudala besicindezela (x2) If we cant help ourselves Who's gonna help us, who's gonna help us Uyangibambezela, uyangibambezela Ooh don't be selfish Buya buya zwelami [Verse 3] You rappers need to be more socially conscious with your voices We flexing on every verse and every chorus Should be playing our role as the reporters of the stories of our people We one of the strongest forces for change Social economic discourse is occuring in all the corners of the country Children are hungry people are dying while we busy taking for granted And misusing the power of our influence You know your role in the constituent and everything you bring to it
