Hello darkness my old friend

You've come to rob me once again

I hear your footsteps softly creeping

Through my house as I lie sleeping

And the brick you used to smash my window pain

Still remains

Within in the sounds of sirens.

(SOUND EFFECT OF ALARM SIREN)

In restless streets I walked alone

They stole my car I can't get home

'Neath the halo of a old street lamp

They grabbed my wallet by the AutoBank

When I was stabbed by a gangster and a couple of

his pals

It split my skull

I heard the sounds of sirens

(SOUND EFFECTS OF POLICE SIREN)

And in the naked light I saw

Just one Konstabel not one more

He shouted, "Freeze! This is the law speaking!"

They broke his kakebeen without listening

People running loose 'cause they been released on bail

No place in jail

Amidst the sounds of sirens

(SOUND EFFECTS OF MIXTURES OF SIRENS)

Why they do it I don't know

Violence like a cancer grows

Hear my words that I might teach you

Take my T.V. and my radio

But a life is a sacred thing my Bru

It's given once...

Don't let it echo... (GUNSHOT FOLLOWED BY SHRIEK)

.......INTO SILENCE

And in the naked light I saw

A shadow moved across my door

I walked quietly and klapped him once

It was the Outjie from Armed Response

'Ag sorry,' I said as he fell down on his head

My face was red

Reflected in the Sounds of Sirens

This has my vote for new National Anthem, Everone should know this by heart.

I love the Truth wrapped in Irony and Satire - it's just this kind of humor that gets me thru the day - bru.

Don't worry Erica, chances of your kids knowing this song is most probably quite slim. Kids are much much less sensitive about these things, remember they are growing up in this country and know whats going on, it's us who have been used to better that is shocked...

But yeah.

Hey Terence, you have started something now...

Here's my short version to ..'I can see clearly now'

I can feel clearly now the stress has gone

I can't see bars, security gates and ADT

I am more relaxed than ever before..

ITS GOING TO BE A BRIGHT, BRIGHT SUNNY OZZIE DAYYYYYYY!!!!

I was singing away, like no tomorrow!

LOL! Good one EricaC!

Terence, did you write the lyrics for the 'Sound of violence?' If so, very well done!

I would offer my feeble attempt at some make-over of a popular song too, but it's still v-e-r-y early on Sunday morning and I have not yet had my 2nd cup of coffee... Cannot think until then! :o So I'll pass... for now!
