Duet by Yaksport Jossiah and Shalom Gowok

We heard of a solemn proclamation
In 1789 of change called revolution
The eve took place in a wall paper factory
Where laborers planned to roll away their agony

France craved for good governance
And good management of their substance
It happened because they really need the change
All the day long they strive to bring the change.

But now, decades has passed
Here in the country of blacks
We've lived like inmates
Who longed for their pain to end

Like her Our struggles were only a preparation
And the Pseudo liberty only an introduction
To a world of subtility and deception
Spiced with lies and cruel intension

Slowly the bait was revealed
The systems need to be reformed
The people want to be informed
The task is pivotal and must be addressed

Nigeria a Godless foundation is faulty
Arise to integrity,dignity and sincerity
Awake to righteousness and accountability
Rewind and revolve afresh in honesty.
