There are murders that we must account for
Bloody deeds have been done in my name
Criminal acts we must pay for
And our children will shoulder the blame

[Chorus: x2]
I'm a British subject, not proud of it
While I carry the burden of shame

As a nation we're following blindly
No-one stops to question why
Our money's supporting an army
And a boy in Soweto dies

[Chorus]

[Repeat: x2]
I'm a British subject, not proud of it
While I carry the burden of shame

Must we go on ignoring forever
The cries of an African son
There's a soldier's hand on the trigger
But it's we who are pointing the gun

[Chorus]

[Repeat: x2]
I'm a British subject, not proud of it
While I carry the burden of shame
