or
K'NAAN

So!

In the beginning
There was a hum
From a poet whose pulse fell
Drum drum drum!

He would perform prayers and all
Till one day he heard a voice call
Come come come!

Suspicious he moved
With vicious caution
Dismisses,
He thinks is a little often
People get held back
By the void inside 'em.

Yo!

The void said,
I'm poised to speak inside you
"Rejoice then please let me invite you
To evil, greed and lies too."

Yeah!

Confused and dazed
He moved in ways
He soon became "Hakuna"

A knock on his door, his heart is no more
A knock on his door, his soul is no more

Yeah
That was in the beginning
As the story goes on

So

The poets got a proposal
He would always hope but never know
What it feels
To be free.
He would be the frozen
Imposed as the chosen,
All laws oppose him
But it would be greed.

That's got him there
He's power-hungry,
And proud too.

People don't care, people just care
Evil don't care, evil just care

Yeah!
That was In the beginning
There was a hum.
Then things changed.

They say
It is better to light a candle than to curse the dark in the eyes of the youth
There are question marks
Like freedom.
Freedom for the mind and soul,
We don't see them.
See them for their worth at all,
That's why we lead'em
Lead'em to these wars
And what is it we feed 'em.
Feed em our impurities
And who it is we treat 'em
Treat em like the enemy
Humanity will need'em.
Need 'em like the blood we spill
And we're freedom
Freedom for the hearts we fill
We mislead 'em.
They hunger for the love we give
But we cheat 'em.
The guys beat him and all he wants
Is his freedom,
So they defeat him,
Whatever spirit hes got.
Beat him!
And they teach him
The rest of the world don't need him
And he believes.
In the disease that hes heathen
Put up your fists if all you want is freedom
Put up your fists if all you want is

That was in the beginning
Then things changed

Yeah!

And we keep holdin' on,
And we keep bein' strong
And we keep goin' on
And on and on and on
