    Green Red Green

    Unwrap me from the dead, Wrung the blood off me,
    Fly me and set me ablaze
    For my people bleed.

    Green White Green

    Worn and Torn, from years of no change and decadence
    Hanging in shame on poles for the world to see.

    Flying amongst other flags,
    Put least in the land I represent

    Green Red Green

    For 20-10-20, the day white became red

    The day I failed to protect unarmed innocent protesters at the toll gate
    Who sang the anthem and raised me up.

    The day the military decided that to the grave- my people must go
    The day I was used to wrap the body of fallen heroes.
