It’s Not a Protest We wake up every morning to sad news We see heroes falling like the morning dews How many more to go? This is our Father’s land; where else do you want us to go? This is news that saddens the heart See our “Frenemies” sending bullets through our hearts This is our home, and yet we suffer brutality My blood is green; I can never deny my nationality This is a fight to the end How many more souls are you ready to end We’ll see them as HEROES You’ll see them as FOES A new Nigeria is emerging And YES! we’re not stopping We ask for JUSTICE For our loved ones and our heroes, we seek JUSTICE Stop killing Us You can never stop Us We need Protection Not Execution Put an end to this cruelty We say NO! to this brutality This is our right And for it, we’re going to fight We’ve woken from our slumber We’re repairing the long-time broken pipe like a plumber We’ll fight till we get our Liberation It’s not a protest...THIS IS REVOLUTION
Serial Killer You turned to a serial killer Yet we get stronger You think we’ll stop if you kill us You lie! Cos nothing can distract us You’ve overdone it this time And now is the right time To fight against you devils In black veils You’re the SARS Were the MASS You’re just a little out of us You can never overpower us We’re not backing out Because no one is left out We all are lending our voice It’s in Unison, so it’s no noise Put an end to Police Brutality In one voice and in Unity We ask this, and we’re peaceful Why then are you forceful You want to deprive us of our right? Then we’ll continue to fight We’ll continue to “SOROSOKE” Till everything is OK! #ENDSARS #ENDSWAT #ENDPOLICEBRUTALITY WE’RE NOT CHICKENS; STOP KILLING US
