2ND VERSE:
"In South Africa things are still the same
 The face of humanity still hasn’t changed
 People have to fight to live together

 If we listen to others when they call
 Give a shoulder to lean on when they fall
 Let us bring down the apartheid wall"

"Innocent people pay with their lives
 Cause the truth, it cuts like a knife

 Give a shoulder to lean on when they fall
 Let us bring down the apartheid wall"
