ub40 lyrics – burden of shame

burden of shame

there are murders that we must account for
bl**dy deeds have been done in my name
criminal acts we must pay for
and our children will shoulder the blame

i’m a british subject, not proud of it
while i carry the burden of shame [repeat]

as a nation we’re following blindly
no-one stops to question why
our money’s supporting an army
and a boy in soweto dies

i’m a british subject, not proud of it
while i carry the burden of shame [repeat]

must we go on ignoring forever
the cries of an african son
there’s a soldier’s hand on the trigger
but it’s we who are pointing the gun

i’m a british subject, not proud of it
while i carry the burden of shame [repeat]
