The word is a bird
audio file details
Some say silence is golden
But silence is shit
'Cause words can hit
But they can heal
Liberating us from what we feel
'Cause mazwi acho akasimba
Anogona kutibatsira kwatirikuenda1
'Cause words are warriors
And their great gifts are glorious
But politicians wanna sell us words that are worthless
Creating a populace that's wordless
Throwing curse upon curse on the word's carcass
But the word is a bird and birds fly regardless
Flying above the durawalls of their so-called silence
The word still heard above their virile violence
'Cause you can bomb the word but you can't keep it silent.
are powerful, they can help us to move forward.
