"Living Darfur" as written by and Sello "chicco" Twala Marlon Roudette....
See the nation through the people's eyes,
See tears that flow like rivers from the skies.
Where it seems there are only borderlines
Where others turn and sigh,
You shall rise (x2)

There's disaster in your past
Boundaries in your path
What do you desire when lift you higher?
You don't have to be extraordinary, just forgiving
Those who never heard your cries,
You shall rise (x2)
And look toward the skies.
Where others fail, you prevail in time.
You shall rise.

(You may never know,
If you lay low, lay low) (x4)
You shall rise (x3)

Sooner or later we must try... Living
(You may never know,
If you lay low, lay low) (x4)

See the nation through the people's eyes,
See tears that flow like rivers from the skies.
Where it seems there are only borderlines
Where others turn and sigh,
You shall rise (x4)

(You may never know,
If you lay low, lay low) [4x]

Sooner or later we must try... Living

    General Commentdamnit! i'm a huge mattafix fan (or at least i thought i was :) ) but i had no idea about the new album (released in september) which is clearly no longer new >.<
    just heard this song, and it is truly heartwarming
    it's a great find because in about three weeks i'm heading to kenya to participate in aid work in the rural areas and i'm really looking forward to it.
    I interpret this as a message of hope, not just in the dafur region but all of Africa, and even broader for the whole world. Despite the almost infinite hardships faced by countless millions each day
    "See tears that flow like rivers from the skies.
    Where it seems there are only borderlines"
    the song seems to suggest that eventually all these hardships will be conquered by the strength and determination of the people themselves.

    This song has the first video ever actually recorded in a war zone. sure other artists have done charity type songs and whatnot but this actually uses people of the land- not darfur but other people in africa-i know cuz i live in africa and dont tell me not to generalise africa or whatever cuz it is my home

    General CommentAlthough the main theme of the song is obviously about the hardships in darfur. I also find theres a message about seeing the world, all of it, and to learn about it. Travelling really opens up your perspective and perception of the world and the people in it. Makes for a better life. To help people in need does this as well.
