Story complicated

By Art Salim

The pain inside me is unbearable

The silence inside me bas been broken

Kilio changu hakihitaji pole wala kanoti kakufutia machozi cause I’m against corruption.

Nimeloose interest ya kuingia gym kuunga since ipande bei ya unga, na I guess gym halls zitabaki

empty ju bodybuilders wanastarve

It’s ironic kuwa na a big note without value ni sawaa tukiita blanketi

Ju naona ata illegali haiuzwi tena chini ya kapeti

Maisha imekuwa ngumu ladies have changed into currency

I mean wamechoose kubecome naughty ili wapate hii noti

living in a country with many economists but bado tunapigwa chenga na bajeti

Ju it’s tiresome living in a country where justice is for the those who have it

Si tunasemanga the truth is painful mbona stature ya naked truth haioni haya kukaa uchi

But now I know the problem

Ni ju we believe that only food can sustain us ndo maana unga unga ya ugali tukaipa jina Taifa

But else where they believe that finance is everything ndo maana wanatumia Dola

Very hard to live in a country where illegal is legal for the chosen few

Sometimes I doubt weather justice is free ju ata

Statue ya naked truth imebeba samaki.

Ama it’s only for the fishers of men who gather masses through handouts,

Waende kwa streets kushout tialala,

Then back home empty stomach wanalala hurumaaa.

Tusikubali kufanywa mafala,let’s stand and pick the true colours.
