The End has been called The truth is bathed with a voice Roaming the streets, screeching The voice as a roaring beast Summoning the dying quest Arousing the riveting thirst The End raises a beginning To the wakening of agility Long humbly-oversoaked in temperance and loyalty But the End has come To put a stop to the menace. The burning pressure ravaging Lives meant to be preserved Betraying the trust thrust In a country with a leader Silent at night and day But we go out of our way To disclose cruelty in human End police brutality We are not animals We deserve to live End to the mirage End to the criminals End to the enemies of freedom Shame to the withering hands in action Shame to the emptiness in uniforms Who have turned the oath to oats Sapping like others are strangers and nothing But we clamour for an End And the End is here We want a better today for tomorrow Deaf to retreat Our voices will not shrink or cease Pens will not cease to bleed That we are Nigerians We are not lazy or dizzy We are active We know what to do We own our lives We deserve the best hope #WEFACETHEMUSIC #ENDPOLICEBRUTALITY #KILLINGISNOTPOWER #GIVEUSHUMANSWITHBRAIN
