"Neighbours" as written by Heiko Maile and Marcus Meyn....
Black men leaders cried for freedom
White policemen shot them dead
The survivors were sent to prison
Based on laws which no one understands

White man yawning, in his armchair
Smiled while watching white TV.
Hundreds of people dead or injured
He never understands this hysteria.

What can we do? What can we say?
Can it be law to kill your neighbor?
What can we do? What can we say?
Can it be wrong to end it all?

Snipers sitting in police cars
Cautiously stroking machine guns
Never thought of black suppression,
They were paid for every hit they have.

What can we do? What can we say?...
