lyrics

My name means early morning, let's go, let's take a journey.
Tell you a story about Africa.
My Great Grandfather was a holy man, born up in the mountains.
Everything I know today he taught me.

15 years old I was very dangerous, nighttime guerillas they kidnapped me.
They tell me about my country, they say this this this, told me to blow a train.
I'm not going to do that, that's not the reason that I am here.
Nothing worse than your brother kills you on the street.

The spirit, the creator, they got me out.
A jail kid, sentenced to death.
Smuggled me thru Tanzania, England, then I am here.
I'm triple happy, glad to meet you, I'm fine now.

Noah, oh my God, can I get a space on your boat, sir?
