Dark Continent (W.SONY)

Slipping from the shadows
running the slum
Hearts are beating faster
Waiting for the sun
To concentrate on cities
Rising from the damp
and walk across the water
with soldiers from the camp
children of the desert night
they swim right through the earth
and walk across the water
dark continent gave birth

motorcades of dignitaries
the food relief has come
shaking hands with refugees
more dollar signs and guns
hotels full of businessmen
and government do lunch
they pay in foreign currency
put party in the punch
children of the desert night
they swim right through the earth
and walk across the water
dark continent gave birth

billboards cast their shadows
over shacks surrounding town
they love to watch the sunset
over industry the sounds
of lullabies are alien
more sweeter than a rose
more magic than the garden
with signs that say it’s closed
