Africans
Nneka Lyrics


Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
You keep pushing the blame on our colonial fathers
You say they came and they took all we had possessed
They have to take the abuse that they have caused
Our present state with their intruding history
Use our goodness and nourishment in the name of missionary

Lied to us blind slaved us misplaced us
Strengthen us hardened us then they replaced us
Now we got to learn from pain
Now it is up to us to gain some recognition
If we stop blaming we could get a better condition
Wake up world

Wake up world wake up and stop sleeping
Wake up Africa wake up and stop blaming
Open your eyes eyes stand up and rise
Road block oh life penalty

Sing why do we want to remain where we started
And how long do we want to stop yourselves from thinking
We should learn from experience that what we are here for this existence
But now we decide to use the same hatred to suppress our own brothers
It is so comfortable to say
Racism is the cause and it's not the cause
This time it is the same color chasing and biting us
Knowledge and selfishness that they gave to us
This is what we use to abuse us

Wake up world wake up and stop sleeping
Wake up Africa wake up and stop blaming
Open your eyes your eyes stand up and rise
Road block oh life penalty
Those who have ears let them hear
Brothers who are not brainwashed take ruins and rest
Pick them up and stick them back together
This is the only way we can change this African weather

Lied to us blind us they slaved us misplaced us
Strengthen us hardened us then they replaced us
Now we got to learn from pain
Wake up world wake up and stop sleeping
Wake up Africa wake up and stop blaming
Open your eyes your eyes stand up and rise
Road block road block
You got to wake up please
Wake up world wake up and stop sleeping
You got to wake up Africa you got to see the truth wake up and stop blaming
Oh oh oh oh open yours eyes open up you should open up
You should open up stand up and rise
Road block road block oh life penalty wake up
