I’m from a place where life is just a prescription
Where young boys learn early how to grow up to be providers
And young girls learn early how to audition to be people’s wives
I’m from a place of traffic jams and morning rushes
But what are we all chasing?
I’m from a place where we’re chasing rides and chasing paper
But is that what life is really about?
I’m from Umlazi
A place where only a few dare to dream
