Mutabaruka Revolt Aint a Revolution

Revolt Aint a Revolution
Mutabaruka

Why are we fighting each other
Trying to overthrow our brother.
Why are we still saying freedom
Still freedom cant com
We have to learn things from Ancient History
To help buil a new society
We have to remember Nkrumah and Garvey
To build our own economy
Now a revolt aint a revolution
Coup is still not the solution
We have to plant some food on the land
Agriculture is the key for buildin a nation
Why are we measurin progress
As determined by the West
Why are we still saying yes
To all their industrial mess
We have to overstan the times we are living in
And remember where we have been
We have to remember what happen in slavery
So as not to repeat that history
Now a revolt aint a revolution
Killin leaders is not the solution
We have to buil schools in the community
to get rid of illiteracy
Why are we listening to these preachers
Who pose as moral teachers
Why are we still saying amen
To the very thing that put us in this pen
We have to return to Ancient philosophy
And reveal all of earths mystery
We have to live by our own spirituality
To determine our own destiny
Now a revolt aint a revolution
Foreign aid is still not the solution
We have to overstan Afrika for the Afrikans
to buil a new nation
Why are we discussin problems
With people who refuse to solve them
Why are we still beggin for freedom
While looking down the barrel of a gun
We have to seek Shaka an Hannibal
In these times of aggression
And understand what was their mission
We have to advance to victory with truth and rights
Knowin that right ust overcome might
Now a revolt aint a revolution
Building nuclear weapons is not the solution
If something is not worth diein for
Its not worth living for
But if it takes war to free us
Then is just WARRRR…….
