The new South African Anthem

SRC: [unknown]

(sung to the tune of "Sounds of Slience")
Hello darkness  my old friend
You've come to  rob me once again
I hear your  footsteps softly creeping
Through the  house as I was sleeping
And the brick  you used to smash my window pain
Within the  Sounds of Sirens

In restless  streets I walked alone
They stole my  car I can't get home
'Neath the halo  of an old street lamp
They grabbed my  wallet by the Autobank
When I was  stabbed by a gangster and a couple of his pals
It split my  Skull
I heard the  Sounds of Sirens

> And in the  naked light I saw
Just one  Konstabel not one more
He shouted  "Freeze! This is the law speaking"
They broke his  Kakebeen without listening
People running  loose 'cause they just been released on
bail
No place in  jail
Amidst the  sounds of Sirens

Why they do it  I don't know
Violence like a  cancer grows
Hear my words  that I might teach you
Take my TV and  my Radio
But a life is a  sacred thing my Bru.
It's a given  once ......
Don't let it  echo .....
INTO  SILENCE

And in the  naked light I saw
A shadow moved  across my door
I walked  quietly and klapped him once
It was the  Outjie from the Armed Response
"Ag Sorry" I  said as he fell down on his head
My face was  red
Reflected in  the sounds of Sirens
