Once we lived our lives in freedom
We were oh so peaceful and serene
Then we were conquered by a people
Who crucified our self esteem
We people labour in our bondage
Totally enslaved in our own land
They promised to free us from subjugation
But they never plan to let us go

Against all odds we’re fighting
Even though it’s very frightening
We have our backs against the wall
And we must keep insisting
Continue our resisting
Fighting for our rights against all odds

It’s a universal story
A once proud people forced to live in poverty
Yes it’s a sad, sad situation
One that could be resolved if they would set us free

Nestor Serpa called us all together
Thirteen brave warriors took the call
Most of us barely more than children
But each one of us was standing tall
We held some diplomats as hostage
We quickly let the others go
All we asked was our peoples’ freedom
And wanting to let the whole world know

Chorus
Chorus 2
Against all odds we’re fighting
Even though it’s very frightening
We have our backs against the wall
And we must keep insisting
Continue our resisting
That’s how we died against all odds
