Political War

I remember when I was younger
The politicians came to my valley
They wanted my parents to vote for them
And my daddy say "no no I don't want to vote for them"

Political war

ASA: And all the hopes and promises
For better live and education, good road, security
They don't come my way, they sound so far away
And all the governors and ministers, presidents and
Many wives, colleagues and everybody running helter-skelter
But they don't come way, rhey're far away

Political war

I remember when I was younger
My daddy disappeard from his frienda and family
He was taken to fight a political war
Another sacrifice for the political war

ASA: And I remember they did the same in Nigeria
I remember they did the same in Liberia

I don't want to see my people dying for political war
I don't want to see that again, see that again, to see that

ASA: Why are my people still dying for political war
Why do I see that again, see that again, see that?
