Dear Leopold (Track #8)

You could have been the one
Who drove tyrants away
You could have seen a people
Delivered from their chains
Dear Leopold

You could have stood for justice
And been the people's king
You could have stood for freedom
You could have stood for anything
Dear Leopold

But greed and deceit were your drive
They took over your life
In spite of the millions who died

Like the oceans go on and on
You gave us a hope that seemed endless
But it was a lie You wasted your life
Building empty castles for yourself
And in the end you threw it all away

When you stand before your Maker
What will you say
Giving account of all of your days
Dear Leopold

Will you stand there in silence
Shaking at the knees
Reminded of your failures
And your atrocities
Dear Leopold, Dear Leopold

God only gives us one chance to live out
The dreams and hopes that He has
Where are you storing the treasures you build up
On earth or in His hands

Mawa eh (great sorrow)
Kuwa bo ke dila (listen to them crying)
