Until the philosophy,
Which hold one race superior and another,
Inferior,
Is finally,
And permanently,
Discredited.
And abandoned.
Everywhere is war.
Me say war.

That until there no longer,
First class and second class citizens of any nation.
Until the colour of a man's skin,
Is of no more significance, than the colour of his eyes.
Me say war.

That until the basic human rights,
Are equally guaranteed to all,
Without regard to race.
Dis a war.

That until that day,
The dream of lasting peace,
World citizenship,
Rule of international, morality.
Will remain in but a fleeting illusion, to be pursued,
But never attained.
Now everywhere is war.
War!

And until, the ignoble and unhappy regimes,
That hold our brothers in Angola,
In Mozambique,
South Africa,
Sub-human bondage,
Have been toppled,
Utterly destroyed.
Well, everywhere is war..
Me say war.

War in the east,
War in the west,
War up north,
War down south.
War, war.
Rumours of war.
And until that day, The African continent,
Will not know peace,
We Africans will fight, we find it necessary,
And we know we shall win,
As we are confident,
In the victory.

Of good over evil.
Good over evil, yeah!
Good over evil.
Good over evil, yeah!
Good over evil.
Good over evil, yeah!
