2 HEAT COME DOWN (TJM Tutty, Punka Khoza)

TJM Tutty - acoustic guitar, backing vocals
Stuart Smyth - mandolin, whistle, backing vocals

When will the clouds lift
When will the darkness shift
To let the sun shine down
For the people who walk on the ground

Man with a mission come this way
Riding on the pale moon light
People with a vision turned inside out
MI5 and the CIA

Heat come down

Heat come down on the strong and bold
Heat come down on the young and old
Heat come down in your bed at night

I've got lessons to learn and thoughts to burn
The East's on fire with the West's desire
Man with a forked tongue speak out loud
Stir up the masses excite the crowds yeah

Heat come down in the desert sand.
Heat come down on the mountain side
Heat come down in Addis Ababa
Heat come down everywhere

Heat come down on your man next door
Heat come down in black and white
Heat come down in your bed at night


3 DIME TO DUST (TJM Tutty, Punka Khoza)

Punka Khoza - vocals, backing vocals
TJM Tutty - acoustic guitars

I walk in the city
And there are people everywhere around
Chasing the fast buck.
A promise to buy you a better future

Now is where we are
There is no other side of the hill
Now is where we are
And all I want to know
Is when the wind blows

To turn the history page
Will the hurricane wings
Come to change your world?
And there is where we'll be
On the other side of the hill.
Yes, there is where we'll be.
Do you want to come along?

Dime to dust Is Mr Dollar gonna stay with you forever
Dime to dust To buy you a better future? EMAZOWE
EHWo 'ngab' amany' amazwe athini?
Wo 'ngab' amany' amazwe athini?

MAN! WE WALK IN A DANGEROUS TIME
HIGH RISE JUNGLE CATCHING FIRE!
DE REVOLUTION CHANGE DE FRAME
YET THE PICTURE ALWAYS STAYS THE SAME.

Heart beat through the night
Still the river flows and I will know
Your heart beats through the night
Still the river flows and I will know
To breathe and turn my head
Catch the sun break through
Yes, it always works that way

Now is where we are
Come and walk

Dime to dust Is Mr Dollar gonna stay with me forever
Dime to dust To buy me a better future?
Dime to dust Is Mr Dollar gonna stay with you forever
Dime to dust To buy you a better future? EMAZOWEH
Dime to dust Is Mr Dollar gonna stay with me forever
Dime to dust To buy me a better future?
Dime to dust Is Mr Dollar gonna stay with you forever
Dime to dust To buy you a better future? EMAZOWE EH

U sekuru wanga .... chenjera upenyu wako mdara
U sekuru wanga .... chenjera upenyu!
Chenjera upenyu wako mdara .....

You walk the water child
Life is holding you so fly
Self detention won't be the order of the day for you
The world is old and it will steal your time

Don't be shy

Have you worked it out
Tears you cry are the same as mine
Freedom in the rain that falls
Days are short and change will come
Fragile steps in the promised land
Love is blind don't look behind.

Uyeye uyeye mntakwetu caphela
The sun will shine on your face
You hold the key in your heart.

It's a strange world that we all live in

People hiding in the streets
Throwing rocks at their brother
Throwing rocks at you
Everybody want to blame each other
For the situation they find themselves in.

Sisters on the run
And the childrens children too
From the one that's aiming
To drive you outta town
Dangerous youth you carry that loaded gun.

It's a strange world that we all live in
(Watch me run for cover).

In the time that we live in this world
People come and yes they go (Sibabonile)
In the time that we live in this world.

Ita fanela ihlonipana mwana mama

Without love
My heart won't break
Without love
The earth won't shake
Without love
My fire won't burn
Without love
Ningexikoti ku hanya mwana mama
Without love
Where is my destiny
Without love
There is no you or me.
