Lyrics

August Sun

Genocide makes the cover of the evening news tonight
You can either turn the page or scream out for what's right
Shallow graves beneath the August sky
How many more must suffer and die

Gunshots in the night make children cry
As mothers turn to God and ask him only why
Young girls are raped beneath the August sun
How much more until this hate is done

Bridge:

Haven't heard our sons and daughters
Singing songs of simple dreams
Haven't tasted of the waters
Running clear in silent streams

In the fight for land and liberty
Will you rise above and come with me
Will our homeland ever be a home again
And will we ever feel the warm, sweet rain

It always seems like it's been this way
A different dawn, but the same old day
Since the dawn of time you've heard this song before
When will there be no need to sing it anymore
