lyrics

Ubuntu
By Robert Johnson Howard

I came across a concept that will test my moral sense
And end my fleeting victories at someone else’s expense
I spent a lifetime taking from this pseudo perfect dance
It may take an ancient school to give a world a second chance

I’m doing something special, it changes everything I knew
Cause what I took away from life, it had to come through you
Ubuntu is to life as the strings to my guitar
It’s simple message is “I am because you are”
I’m only a man

Chorus:
Ukuthula, Uthando, Ubuntu
We are Hungry
We are Lonely

There’s a better way than this insanity
It will fill my hunger for more humanity
It’s all about the sharing and obey the golden rule
In compassion there is caring, it never takes you for a fool

The more of us that live as one, the more we identify
The less we have to fight for, we won’t have to see our children die
We will raise each other up; it will be our common plan
It’s one for all and all for one we stand
I am only a man


Chorus

Robert Johnson Howard Newport, Rhode Island

Writing and recording is my passion. Its like a painting. It doesn't do any good stuck in my head so I might as well get it on disk before it drives me to cut my ear off.
