As Yet Untitled Lyrics

As Yet Untitled - Terence Trent D'Arby

Out by a shanty where the dust hangs high

 

Far from a river where things grow green

 

The flowers weep and they lean away

 

From the blood stained soil beneath my feet

 

The thorns outnumber the petals on the rose

 

And the darkness amplifies the sound of printers' ink

 

On propaganda page

 

That will rule your life and fuel my rage

 

I tried to bend my knees

But my knees were already bent

 

I haven't stood like a man for such a long time now

 

I called to my god but he was sleeping on that day

 

I guess I'll just have to depend on me

 

Shall I tell my children if they ask of me

 

Did I surrender forth my right to be

 

Y'see my daddy died to leave this haunting ground

 

And this same ground still haunts me

 

The cool September blows the seeds away

 

The harvest blown again this year

 

But I'll return a stronger man

 

I'll return to me my homeland

 

No grave shall hold my body down

 

This land is still my home

 

I said:

 

But I'll return a stronger man

 

I'll return to me my homeland

 

No grave shall hold my body down

 

This land is still my home

 

 

This land is still my home
