Lyrics

Vows have been broken
The truth has been spoken
At last I can see the light

My people have wandered
The land has been plundered
Is this the end in sight?

I’ve cursed and I’ve cried
And I’m twisted inside
And I can’t keep my anguish at bay

But I’m not ready to go
I’m not ready to go
I’m not ready to go
I’m not ready, ready to go

With the good book in hand
The European man
Came preaching the word of the lord

So gentle and kind
With love on his mind
He said “if you live by you’ll die by he sword”

Some chose to believe
Some chose to fight
Some vanished in the dead of the night

But I’m not ready to go
I’m not ready to go
I’m not ready to go
I’m not ready, ready to go

Well I’m young and I’m strong
And I’ve lasted this long
And I know how to get through the night

There’s nowhere to hide
I’ve still go my pride
And noone can take that away

But I’m not ready to go
I’m not ready to go
I’m not ready to go
I’m not ready, ready to go
