Deceased

In the days of hope and life

All seemed brighter and alive

Happiness prevailed over ridges

All in the name of peace

To conquer the evil deeds

Am i right in my senses?

To remember the good old days?

Monster! monster! monster!

All n the name of development

Pain and fear all over

All in the name of maendeleo

Mother, father, sister, brother,

killed in the line of duty

All in the name of building the country

my being is no more

it’s gone with the old days

My memories of old days

Weakening my nerves forever

the race ahead of me

so, i have to walk endlessly

To prove the innocence of my people

For once this planet will be worth living in

Peace, love and harmony is all we need

We all stand

For united we have to be

Your brother’s keeper be

Bring back our sweet, sweet memories
