2 Private Revolution Jean Bosco Safari Some say Paradise is a one way street Its taste is much too sweet The concept’s incomplete Some say some religions live on fear The hopeless and the weak Created to mislead They try to sell us guilt And the original sin Their only God is money That’s what they’re in They got a revolution ragin’ inside of me A private revolution tellin’ me that I can be the one I wanna be The one I really wanna be Some say drums and dreams will lead the way I keep on singing it every day I keep on hearing it in every way Once some singer sang love is all you need But they shot him on the street Left him dying at her feet He gave me a clue And I called it a dream He got me doing what I do A revolution from within He got a revolution ragin’ inside of me A private revolution tellin’ me I can be the one I wanna be The one I realy wanna be Some say fussin’ & fighting will always pay Divide and rule is the game they play The beast is roarin’ and it’s ugly and it’s mean In the middle of this mess where do I fit in Where do I fit in There’s a private revolution, a private revolution ragin’ A private revolution inside of me It’s a private revolution A private revolution tellin’ me I can be the one I wanna be The one I wanna be Umutimanama uhora umbwira uti: Kanguka uhagurukane umurava Ugere k’untego wiyemeje utunge utunganirwe Maze ube uwo wifuza kuba ube uwo uriwe Imirishyo y’ingoma, niyo iyobora intamwe dutera Igatuma dukabya izo duhora turota

3 Silence Jean Bosco Safari Silence walking in my head - Like a cougar in a cage - You don’t hear her steps - Always listening, she has heard every word you said - While she smiles - Silence glidin’ through my head - Like an eagle on the wind, like a word unsaid - As she gazes from above - Watching every step - While she smiles • Standing on the outside, shouting at the far side - But nobody can hear, just a single word that I shout - Airplanes, motorways, thundering subways - Air raids, black days (where are you) • Factories and discotheques, sandstorms, earthquakes - I shake, you shake, the sudden sound of brakes - In the middle of a panic scene, I hear myself scream - (where are you) • Silence whispering in my head - That it all has a purpose like the prophets have said - Don’t you worry bout the rain - Thoughts can never get wet - Again she smiles - Landing on the inside, trying to get my chute right - Nobody can help, ‘cos it’s meant to be a solo flight - Radio silence, is my single sign of guidance, - tyin’ up loose ends (where are you) • Shivering, quivering waiting for the sunrise - I shine, you shine, jewels in the dark - In the middle of the night, I would like to see you spark - (where are you) • Spy games, side-ways, tired to be a runaway - I go, you stay, no time to play - In the middle of my walkabout calling out loud - (where are you) • Silence resting in my head - Like a silent sleeping fairy on a rainforest bed - When you’ll wake her - She will shush you - She will hush you and then - You will smile 4 Walk Away Jean Bosco Safari I saw you workin’overtime - Hardly getting by - Figuring out what is wrong or right - Where to draw the line - You couldn’t handle your heart - Couldn’t handle your brain - Always running late - You were going downhill, you were going down the drain - Holdin’ on to fate • But you didn’t walk away – walk away - Never tried to walk away - But you didn’t walk away – walk away - No you didn’t walk away • You kept saying to yourself - You can win this race - But you got disqualified - You didn’t even know how to play this game - The rules were classified - I saw you drowning yourself in liquor and tears - So your colours washed to grey - I saw you seeking some help gettin’ rid of the fears - The fears that cause the pain • But you didn’t walk away – walk away - Never tried to walk away - But you didn’t walk away – walk away - No you didn’t walk away • Now you saw yourself in a hideaway cave - A kid with a smiling face • All covered with dirt, ready and alert - Ready to be saved - Then you took his hand, knew he’d understand - He needed no words to say • Now you could walk away – walk away - Never tried to walk away - But you didn’t walk away – walk away - No you didn’t walk away - You didn’t walk away - Never tried to walk away - No you didn’t walk away - Walk away - You didn’t walk away - Walk away - Walk away - Walk away •

5 The Human Race Jean Bosco Safari Who you are is who you’ve been - and who you wanna be - It’s so hard to see it clear all the way - and so complex so I go - for simplicity - one step a day - Well the air that we breath - and we are walking in - it is one thing for sure we all share - artificially divided we are bringing in - chaos everywhere • Look at us - Dreams and dust - Fighting lust - we’re human - losin’grace - losin’face - on the Money- chase - we’re the Human Race • So I’m cleaning up my mess - in my own backyard - something I need to do everyday - I’m out of time and I got - only one card to play Nothing personal it’s business as usual - this vision will not keep us alive - Five years and it will all become cruxial - let’s all unite - look at us … - I can feel what I hear - It’s the drums in my dreams - and they sound so true - what I hear is what I get - and it’s healing my head - and my body too - and everyone who wants - to see the whole - understand it all - be all for one and one… - one for all - • Look at us - Dreams and dust - Finding trust in being human - losin’grace - losin’face - on the Money- chase - we’re the Human Race • Hey, Hey, Hey, Hey - we’re the Human Race

Ntangazwa nuko ntarijyenyine Niba ijwi numwa, arijye koko wiyumva Am IBosco Safari One Jean Lookin’ at the sky I think the sun is shining but in fact the rain is pouring, what is wrong with me I seem to find it hard to face the facts as they are and place them in the concept of reality And I wonder, am I all alone down here Yes I wonder, if the voice I hear is me Am I one - Am I two - Maybe three But it’s so hard to see - I wonder which one is me Which one is me - Which one is me In the middle of a crowded room, I must confess that the perfume of loneliness, rolls like a mist all over me In the middle of a traffic jam I don’t remember who I am I just remember where I really wanna be And I wonder, am I all alone down here Yes I wonder, if the voice I hear is me Am I one - Am I two - Maybe three But it’s so hard to see - I wonder which one is me Am I one - Am I two - Maybe three But it’s so hard to see - Who’s the one Is there anyone I can talk to - Anyone I can see Is there anyone I can turn to - To confirm that it is me That the voice I think I’m hearing, Is it really me Or the face inside the mirror, is that J.B. that I see? 6

I Am Who Bosco Safari I Am Jean See me while I grow - See me while I sing See me while I show - Show you my Achilles heel See me while I cry - See me push my shame aside See me bow, see me kneel Breaking vows, breaking deals I am who I am - I’m not better, I’m not lesser I’m just who I am - I got a name, I got a song And the right to belong (be along?) Here I stand - I am who I am Hear me while I shout - Letting my anger out See me while I face - Face, the lonely crowd Hear me while I doubt -Breathing in and breathing out Hear me whisper from afar - Confessin’ sins after dark I am who I am - I’m not better, I’m not lesser I’m just who I am - I got a name, I got a song And the right to belong - Here I stand I am who I am See me while I’m strong - See me while I’m holding on No surrender, - No retreat See meigitangaza,I ntanubwo ndimeant wari Sindi doing what do - What I was icyig to do Without angst - Without fear … Ngira aho mvuka, nkagira izina Mfite indirimbo niyo ngabo yanjye N’uburenganzira bwo kubaho kur‘iyisi Nduwo ndiwe – nduwo ndiwe – nduwondiwe 8

11 Jean Bosco Safari Slave All that I wanted was the best for everyone - All that I needed was a sign for a dream to come and - All I wanted to avoid is ‘forgettin’ anyone - Broken and beaten I found shelter in this cave - Lickin’ my wounds - hopin’ that this cave will keep me safe - Fighting failure and disbelief tryin’ to be brave - Feeling strong, getting back to the fact, - that I was once a slave - ooh • I was once a slave - Just an ordinary slave - Living in another space and time - I was once a slave - Just a dirty workin’ slave - Guess I died more than a 1000 lives • All that Mozes wanted was, bringing his people home - All that he needed was a stick to hit the stone - And all I gotta learn is how to function on my own – how to function on my own - Up till now, - I’m stuck here in this warm and comfy cave - Lickin’ my wounds - hoping that this place will keep me safe - Like a Shaolin fighter who was once a slave • I was once a slave - Just an ordinary slave - Livin’ in another space and time - I was once a slave - Just a dirty workin’ slave - Guess I died more than a 1000 lives • Reflections of the past - come without warning me at all - Reading destiny backwards - is like hearing the voice before the call • I was once a slave - Just an ordinary slave - Livin’ in another space and time • I was once a slave - Just a dirty workin’ slave - Guess I died more than a 1000 lives (4x) • ooooh Oya-oya-oya ndabyanze Oya-oya-oya nanze kuba umucakara 12 Jean Bosco Safari & Marcus Sheibmaier Wake Up And Dream Those 4 words that you gave me - To get me on my feet again - Like a 1000 Buddhists chanting - I hear them trancing in my head - Now I walk inside the solution - Thanks to the words you’ve said • Wake Up And Dream (2 x) • Those dark sides I’ve been hiding - Now I face them one by one - They look just a little less frightening - Since I know where they come from - Still they dance in my ears - To a faraway Ruandan drum • Wake Up And Dream • I close my eyes and see - I close my eyes and see - The boy on the hill is me - I close my eyes and see - Close my eyes and see … Untotorera izonarose, ukiyumvamo ukomerewe Sinkeneye kuvuga menshi, kwandika cyangwa Kwohereza intumwa, ubimenya ataratumika Unsoma mu bitecyerezo, umererwa uko ndi
