Prisoner
Everywhere in the world
People are fighting for freedom
Nobody knows what is right
Nobody knows what is wrong
The black man say it' s the white man
The white man say it' s the black man
Indians say it' s the coloureds
Coloureds say it' s everyone
Your mother didn' t tell you the truth
Cause my father didn' t tell me the truth
Nobody knows what is wrong
And what is right
How long is this gonna last
Cause we' ve come so far so fast

When it started, you and I were not there so
Why don' t we
Bury down apartheid
Fight down war and crime
Racial discrimination
Tribal discrimination

You and I were not there when it started
We don' t know where it' s coming from
And where it' s going
So why don' t we

I' m not saying this
Because I' m a coward
But I' m thinking of the lives
That we lose everytime we fight
Killing innocent people
Women and children yeah
Who doesn' t know about the government
Who doesn' t know about the wars going on
Your mother didn' t tell you the truth
Cause my father did not tell me the truth
Yeah

Black man say it' s the white man
White man say it' s the black man
Indians say it' s the coloureds
Coloureds say it' s everyone

When it started we were not there
We know where we come from
But we don' t know where we' re going
So why don' t we

Bury down apartheid
Fight down war and crime
Racial discrimination
Tribal discrimination

People are fighting for freedom
Nobody knows what is right

Per Don Quijote

Scusa se mi permetto, ma a me il testo che hai inserito (privo di incipit "Everywhere in the world") non sembra appartenere a Morrison bensì a Lucky Dube, apparso per la prima volta come seconda traccia del suo album
Prisoner(1989)

io l'avevo trovato come testo di Van Morrison, effettivamente è di lucky Dube, chiediamo agli admin di riattribuirla a chi di dovere.
