Till We Fall by Angela E Brooks

We are walking walking walking

Along the road to nowhere

And we never seem to reach a spot

Where people care

So we’ll go on walking walking walking

Till we fall.

We’ve left the land that spawned us

Left behind the war and pain

We’ve reached the land that spurns us

So we turn, and walk again

We’ll go on walking walking walking

Till we fall.

Through the dark and lonely night times

Through the dire and dreadful days

When the children and the old folk

Drop and fall

We will chant our ancient hymnal

In a language of our own

As the stones and other missiles

break our bones

We’ll go on walking walking walking

Till we fall

We are people of the earth

Brothers, sisters of the race

We didn’t choose this lifestyle

Nor would you

We need to stop the endless searching

Make our homes and settle down

And we plead with you our brothers

Make a space

Or we go on walking walking walking

Till we fall.
