Track Name: Tropical Klan
Countryside was cold and still
There were crosses on the hill
Each one wore a burning hood
To hide its rotten core of wood
And I say father, I hear an sound
Hoof beats on the frozen ground

And downhill the riders came
Lord it was a cryin' shame
To see the blood upon their whips
To hear the snarlin' from their lips
And I cried mother, I feel the pain
Blood runs like summers rain

Father, mother, sister, brother, stand by me

And each one wore a mask of white
To hide his cruel face from sight
And each one sucked a hungry breath
Out of the empty lungs of death
And I say sister, take my hand
It's always lonely when it's time to stand

He who rides with the klan
Is a devil and not a man
For underneath his white disguise
I have looked into his eyes
And I say brother, brother, stand by me
It's not so easy to be free

Father, mother, sister, brother, stand by me
It's not so easy to be free
Nobody ever said it would be easy
It's not so easy, no it's not so easy
Track Name: Johannesburg
What's the word?
Tell me brother, have you heard
from Johannesburg?
What's the word?
Sister/woman have you heard
from Johannesburg?
They tell me that our brothers over there
are defyin' the Man
We don't know for sure because the news we
get is unreliable, man
Well I hate it when the blood starts flowin'
but I'm glad to see resistance growin'
Somebody tell me what's the word?
Tell me brother, have you heard
from Johannesburg?
They tell me that our brothers over there
refuse to work in the mines,
They may not get the news but they need to know
we're on their side.
Now sometimes distance brings
misunderstanding,
but deep in my heart I'm demanding;
Somebody tell me what's the word?
Sister/woman have you heard
'bout Johannesburg?
