 Debut 
Siyayilanda 03:59
Chorus

Bamba! Siyayilanda!
Siyayibamba siyayilanda!
Ngithi bamba! Siyayilanda!
Fetch it! Siyayilanda!
Human figures in a dream
I heard them singing "Siyayilanda!"
You've got to get up, carry on
Sing this song "Siyayilanda!"
There's a mean machine -- tear the bone clean
I'll tell you where I've been "Siyayilanda!"
Eat! Sleep! On your feet!
You're going to speak! "Siyayilanda!"
Chorus
Falling star in the night
Comfort the weeper "Siyayilanda!"
Turn to the Left, turn to the Right,
Losers, keepers "Siyayilanda!"
Hold me close, I'm trapped in
A night of seasons "Siyayilanda!"
New sun rising up ahead
Coming your way "Siyayilanda!"
Chorus

Kwela Man 03:55
Long ago there was a sound in the night

A Kwela man singing under the street light
With a cheap guitar he gave his sorrow a smile
And he sowed his songs in the alley ways mile upon mile
Chorus
Ye hum ho la lo Kwela man
Ye hum ho la lo Kwela man
Ye hum ho la lo Kwela man
You gave it your life
Living low with the pennywhistle-tea-chest-base-gang
I followed him home and he danced as he sang
But now he's gone
Not even the slightest traces
Of a Kwela song
And the street is full of empty spaces
Chorus
Nobody knows did he survive the winding road
Did he find a song that took him back to the heartland
Here I stand lost in a memory
Of a Kwela man singing in the long gone twilight
Chorus
When I followed you home Kwela man
You filled my soul, Kwela Kwela
When you sang your song Kwela man
You gave it your life
Ye hum ho la lo Kwela man
Ye hum ho la lo Kwela man
Ye hum ho la lo Kwela man
You gave it your life

Simple Things 03:59
Rain forest talking to the dragon-mountain-moon

Stars infest the heavens in the southern skies
Otter swim against the river, whisper in the water
The stars are dead and what you see are shining lies
Body-smoke tie the night in a misty web of blue
Simple things are all we have left to trust
An apple, a horse, some milk and a little bread
Will help time stop slipping through our fingers
Chorus
M-oh-hum-oh
M-oh-hum-oh
What you got left to trust?
Stones in the dust!
A simple thing you got left to trust
Someone in your heart singing
Crickets learn the final chorus of their night song
Standing at your door 'cause I have nowhere else to go
Tried to fill the empty spaces with my songs
Came here 'cause I know you also sometimes feel this way
I brought an apple, a horse, some milk and a little bread
I hope I will not find you smiling in a dream
For I have come too far to face again what I have

Mbaqanga Music 03:29
Umbaqanga man won't you play it if you can

That special music
Umbaqanga man -- he's an African
He's got a special music
Chorus
And we'll move it, we'll move it along
African music, wherever you're from
You'll never lose it -- the rhythm is strong
Umbaqanga music will move you along
Umbaqanga man can you reach me where I am
I need that music
Umbaqanga man won't you play it if you can
That special music
Chorus
And we'll move it, we'll move it along
African music, wherever you're from
You'll never lose it -- the rhythm is strong
Umbaqanga music -- a special song

Two Humans On The Run 04:41
Ngikhanyisele weDlozi lami

Two humans on the run
(repeat)
The autumn leaves have trooped their colours
Rumours of the battle to come
Intelligence says you have departed
But my heart cannot give up its love
I'm living through a war in peace time
Dying to get through to you
Baba noMa...
Living through a war in peace time
To get through to you
On your face, love, days and sorrow
So long we struggled on
Baba noMa...
The heart is a shattered province
Pockets of love still hold out in the ruins
Old memories sent me reinforcements
But they were ambushed on high ground
I'm living through a war in peace time
Dying to get through to you
Baba noMa...
Living through a war in peace time
To get through to you
Why do you fight like this with me now
You fill the days with such sad sounds
Baba noMa...
Ngikhanyisele weDlozi lami
Two humans on the run
(repeat)
I'm living through a war in peace time
(repeat)

Scatterlings Of Africa 05:50
Copper sun sinking low

Scatterlings and fugitives
Hooded eyes and weary brows
Seek refuge in the night
Chorus
They are the scatterlings of Africa
Each uprooted one
On the road to Phelamanga
Beneath the copper sun
And I love the scatterlings of Africa
Each and every one
In their hearts a burning hunger
Beneath the copper sun
Broken wall, bicycle wheel
African sun forging steel, singing
Magic machine cannot match
Human being human being
African idea -- make the future clear
Chorus
They are the scatterlings of Africa
Each uprooted one
On the road to Phelamanga
Beneath the copper sun
And for the scatterlings of Africa
The journey has begun
Future find their hungry eyes
Beneath the copper sun
Ancient bones from Olduvai
Echoes of the very first cry
"Who made me, here and why? --
Beneath this copper sun."
My very first beginnings
Beneath the copper sky
Lie deeply buried
In the dust of Olduvai
Chorus
And we are scatterlings of Africa
Both you and I
We are on the road to Phelamanga
Beneath a copper sky
And we are scatterlings of Africa
On a journey to the stars
Far below we leave forever
Dreams of what we were
Hawu beke Mama-ye! Mama-ye!
In the beginning
Beneath the copper sky
Ancient bones
In the dust of Olduvai
Who made us, here, and why
Remember!
Scatterlings of Africa (repeat and fade)

Spirit Is The Journey 04:39
Ploughed the moon reached an island

Balanced on the edge of the sky
But something always stayed the same
Deep down inside
No matter where I've been the places don't count
Summer in a mountain town
No matter where I've been the places don't count
And I feel let down
'Cause nobody told me
Spirit is the journey
Body is the bus
I am the driver
From dust to dust
Spirit is a story
Body is a book
I am the writer
Together we flow
We hold on, and when the story ends
We hold on, until it begins again
We hold on, we hold on...
I never knew I had one
Till I saw yours shine
Spilling from your laughter
Sparkling in your eyes
Sharing my confusion, sharing my surprise
At finding part of me in you, alive
'Cause nobody told me
Spirit is the journey
Body is the bus
I am the driver
From dust to dust
Trying to be near you
Searching for a way
Listening to your life song
Before it fades away
We hold on, and when the story ends
We hold on, we hold on.
Spirit is the journey
Body is the bus
I am the driver from dust to dust
Now I'm falling, falling away
I hear you calling, calling my name
Spirit move on, move on
Pass my eyes on, on to the next one
I will be long gone, long gone
Across the distance, this divide
I will be with you forever
Till you reach the other side
So hold on, sing this life song
Sing "hold on, hold on, hold on
Hold on!"

Digging For Some Words 04:13
Chorus

Wanderers and nomads have gone to see their chieftains
Will this be the end of the rain and the birds?
Who can send an emissary to speak to the seasons?
For the ravens and the crows already soak up the skies...
I'm digging for some words beneath the stones in Zimbabwe
I'm searching for a drum song in the jungles of Zaire
I'm groping for the blood-moon in the mountains of Malawi
Looking for the Lion of Ethiopia...
The setting dusk is darkened by the bark of the baboon
The frogs and the owls no longer call to the moon
The warlords have gathered, blue smoke hiss from teeth of chrome
And the baobab lies trembling in the boiling blood-loam
The fireplace is broken and the grinding stone too
Its million pieces flung across the plains of Africa
Each dusty fragment a seed from which grows
The memory of a debt that only you and I will know
Chorus
Seven seasoned soldiers have been summoned from Saigon
A craven walkie talkie puts their bloodshot armor on
Some drink beer milk, some drink kinky-kola
Sheep dogs live in Outeniqua
Gun dogs in Angola
Flames lick the corners of each hungry horseman's smile
They have locusts in their scabbards and deserts in their eyes
Passing through the air they leave a sea of fetid rumors
As they ride across the skyline on a secret trail of lies
Chorus
I found some words beneath a stone in Zimbabwe
I heard a distant drum song in the jungles of Zaire
The blood-moon spoke of war in the mountains of Malawi
But I never found the Lion of Ethiopia

Shake My Way 03:43
Mayebabo! Sengijabule kulomhlaba

Hau! Ngidlalela izizwe sengijabule kulomhlaba
Baba yithi amagoso onke kulomhlaba
Shake my way, shake!
Jealous down!
