Sitting by the river bank as cool as it could be
a river's mouth is always sweet cause its close to the sea
it seems to me a storm is coming but those clouds are not gray
theyre huge and white with large canoes and theyre coming to the bay

these strange things get stranger still, as weird creatures still decend
their skin as pale as milk... are they enemy or friend?
they surround me where im sitting there, in my own land
i try to run, but its too late theyve binded both my hands

they drag me through the swampy land as much as i resist
they seem to know their way around, even stranger...through the mist
they find the village easily and point their sticks towards the clan
the ones that try to save me fall to the smoke and a loud bang

their weapons are strange, their clothing still, our arrows and spears cant pierce
we soon give up we've lost the fight the women are in tears
weve all been bounded, our leader smiles as they give him colourful stones

we've been sold, a price on our lives and by our very own people
they drag us all back, the way they came back to those strange canoes
we lost to their power these men of white, they had much better tools
our women stripped of dignity, the men are made to slave
when will we see a day, when we all just might be saved?
