Dreams Of Leaving
Someone stopped the clock when we should have started early
If we miss the morning meeting, our lives will be in danger
Someone's trying to stop us
There is someone in our party
It is someone with a grudge and they won't let us reach the border
Our lives are in his hands
We pay with Krugerands
The currency of pain to help us leaving
While back in our homeland, the ones who make a stand are taken from their homes
And no-one hears of them again
I felt I had to come here
I thought things would be better
The situation's changed, but I find I'm still resented
Someone wants my job
It is someone in this building
Someone's spreading rumours and I don't feel I can stay here
I think I'm going north
And now's the time to leave
The people there they say are good to strangers
And if I do my best and try to settle in
I'm sure I can be just like someone's neighbour
I'm sure I can be just like someone's neighbour
