Written for the "sandstorm Love affair songwriters' challenge at the Java Mammas open mic.

I’m headed for the rocks again
Silent all the way
Oh to go my mother’s way
Screaming all the while

By now I know I’ll take anything
Any given chance
My fear is I’ll take everything and leave no one left standing

But Oh my queen my wife
You won’t get a piece of me
Though I will come for you
Just as they’ll come for me
My sihaya sihaya
To crown or kill me

And I’ll bear you to the rocks again
Belittled all the way
Oh to go my cousin’s way
Kill after kill after kill

But I keep my teeth unto myself
Keep my weapons clean
Stil you’ll throw me to the sands for this
And run my children to the ground.

But Oh my queen my wife
You won’t get a piece of me
and I will come for you
Just as they’ll come for me
My sihaya sihaya
To crown or kill me

Damn what I won’t do
Damn what I won’t say to you
I won’t tell you how it ends
Or who abandons you
Just damn what they will do to you

So I’ll bear you to the killing fields
And place you on the line
I’ll dig your hole myself my friend
Just like I’ve always done

And when my war is through with you
Had its way as I
I’ll shed my tears for the way it died
And wash my hands of you

And oh my Love my Life
You’ll have what is left of me
I will come with you
After they’re done with me
My sihaya sihaya
To have and hold me.
