Sweat in the heat for days on end
Waiting for you to come again
To hear the words spill from your lips
"The system has fallen"
Mass action on the radio
Like a great river ebbs and flows
Carrying us to the final close
When the system has fallen
I know that you are tired and you are weary
Seen too much to believe any more
But we have to keep moving down that long road
If we want to reach that far shore.

Chorus:
We're on our way home to find our freedom
And I'm on my way home to find you my friend
Where we can stand in the light of the people
And breathe life into the land again.
SIYATHEMBA, SIYATHEMBA KUWENA NKOSI SIZO FIKA EMA KHAYA
(We are still hoping and we still believe we will reach our final destination)

Hey! You! if you dance in the shadows
The shadows will cover you
And paralyse all the hope in your eyes
That you'll need to bring you shining through
Could you believe that I am your brother?
Could you believe I could be your friend?
And although I don't know the language you speak
We could be closer than you have ever dreamt.

Chorus:
We're on our way home to find our freedom
And I'm on my way home to find you my friend
Where we can stand in the light of the people
Breathe life into the land again.
SIYATHEMBA, SIYATHEMBA KUWENA NKOSI SIZO FIKA EMA KHAYA
(We are still hoping and we still believe we will reach our final destination)

NGIZOBEKA PHANSI UKU ZONDANA KWAMI
(I will put down my hatre)
NGIZOBEKA PHANSI IZENZO ZEGAZI
(I will lay down my acts of revenge)
NGIZOXOLELANA NEZITHA ZAMI WEMADODA
(I will forgive my enemies)
NGIZO FIKA EMA KHAYA
(and will reach my home)
SIZO FIKA EMA KHAYA
(we will reach our final destination)
I'm on my way, on my way, on my way
Iím on my way to find you my friend.
