There are murders that we must account for
Bloody 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]
