Sip it slowly sweetness sometimes tempts us into the silly
Choked by cherry chocolate charm in a chariot of phony

Have we been fooled?
What, oh what are we to do?

Should we fight back?
Or should we just swallow our pride?
We won't use violence, we'll try not to break too many hearts
We're idealistic but we're also afraid
Should we fight back?
Or should we just swallow our pride?

Follow through the snow, the glow, to the golden city
Swallow our frowns, we'll leave here proud from this island filled with pity

Have we been fooled?
What, oh what are we to do?

Should we fight back?
Or should we just swallow our pride?
We won't use violence, we'll try not to break too many hearts
We're idealistic but we're also afraid
Should we fight back?
Or should we just swallow our ...

Pride in who we are and this battle will be won
In dreams we're invincible, we taste victory in our tongues
The messiah from the Transkei, born to inspire

Should we fight back?
Or should we just swallow our pride?
We won't use violence, we'll try not to break too many hearts
We're idealistic but we're also afraid
Should we fight back?
Or should we just swallow our pride?
