Keep The Fire Burning by Okorie Harrison

The fire is on
Keep it burning
The sky is cloudy
It will fall soon
The heat is tensed
Who will get burnt

The revolution has began
Nothing can stop it
This is the time to speak up
And never give up

We can’t die
While still breathing
Even though I kill myself
I will never die
Because my spirit is high
My heart is heavy
My soul yearn for change

Awaken your strength
Let your spirit come alive

Let us wakeup
Because one day
There will be a new Dawn
A new nation
And a new people
