You know -- I never realized
That a world so incredibly far away as Africa
Could be so close to me.
Look where we are right now
On this pitiful little piece of grass
Suffocated by a sea of cement
Oppressed by all the traffic
Look at the people
Running, shouting, like they've all gone mad.
You know I think I just might go back to Africa.
You can joke
But you can never compare this noisy artificial world
With the natural sounds of Africa.
A time strange, mysterious, weird, almost unreal
Looking to the sky
And raising your arms you can almost caress it
And you feel inside to the will to live
Your skin burns, and you feel a man
More a man, more sincere.
You know I think I might just go back to Africa
