Cry, The Beloved Country

With apologies to MJK. If you don't know where this is comes from walk - no - run! to your nearest CD store and buy ├ćnima by Tool.
Some say the end is near
Some say we'll see armageddon soon
I certainly hope we will
I sure could use a vacation from this

Bullshit three ring circus side show of
Freaks here in this hopeless fucking hole we call SA
The only way to fix it is to flush it all away
Any fucking time, any fucking day
Learn to swim, I'll see you down in Drakensberg Bay

Fret for your parents and
Fret for your children and
Fret for the crime rate and
Fret for the hijack and
Fret for the rapist and
Fret for the power and
Fret for your petrol and
Fret for your life it's a

Bullshit three ring circus side show of
Freaks here in this hopeless fucking hole we call SA
The only way to fix it is to flush it all away
Any fucking time, any fucking day
Learn to swim, I'll see you down in Drakensberg Bay

Some say a comet will fall from the sky
Followed by meteor showers and tidal waves
Followed by faultlines that cannot sit still
Followed by millions of dumbfounded dipshits

Some say the end is near
Some say we'll see armageddon soon
I certainly hope we will cuz
I sure could use a vacation from this

Stupid shit, silly shit, stupid shit...

One great big festering rainbow distraction
I've a suggestion to keep you all occupied

Learn to swim.
Learn to swim.
Learn to swim.

Mom is going to fix it all soon
Mom is coming round to put it back
the way it oughtta be...

Learn to swim.

Fuck Jacob Zuma and
Fuck all his clones
Fuck all these gun-toting
Hip gangster ministers

Learn to swim.

Fuck your load-shedding and
Fuck BEE
Fuck all you junkies and
Fuck HIV

Learn to swim.

Fuck smiley glad-hands
With hidden agendas
Fuck this dysfunctional
Insecure government

Learn to swim.

Cuz I'm praying for rain
And I'm praying for tidal waves
I wanna see the ground give way
I wanna watch it all go down
Mom please flush it all away
I wanna see it go right in and down
I wanna watch it go right in
Watch you flush it all away

Time to bring it down again
Don't just call me pessimist
Try and read between the lines

I can't imagine why you wouldn't
Welcome any change, my friend

I wanna see it come down
Suck it down
Flush it down
