Repetition  

 “Repetition” is S.C.A.M’s view on contemporary South African politics. The song encompasses the hardships of  the apartheid era, and then the transition period and then finally ends with the good Mandela did for South Africa. The third verse shows how the ANC have literally reversed apartheid and do not respect the people’s wishes; they only care about  being in power. This song was written to raise political awareness for the up coming elections in April.

LYRICS

Intro: History repeats itself once again/completely against the constitution the supreme law of our nation/hell if I spit it/I’ll probably be like Skwatta Kamp and have my song banned on every radio station/ah fuck it/I’m just raising awareness

1st Verse: The history of South Africa was devastated by apartheid/heartache suffered fro the regimes mistake/laws made up for the Afrikaner race blacks coloureds and Indians spaced out/to limit their power/this caused a sour relationship still present today/the NP doesn’t mean much to me/that’s how history goes he who is evil is hated by the world/the world sat back and watched shit unfold/they didn’t give a fuck cause they already had our gold/it was up to the young and the old to bring the regime down/team work was needed and that’s why the ANC succeeded it took lot’s of bleeding and various leaders/but they did what was needed/and so came Madiba and things were looking up/

Chorus:
But as history repeats itself
It all comes down to power and wealth
Nobody cares about the people’s health
It’s just more lies coming out their mouths

2nd Verse:Mandela was deemed an offender/a terrorist/his followers had to pretend he didn’t exist/upon his release he ordered peace/he went on to receive the Nobel peace prize/and bought about the rise of a new South Africa/inspired Pienaar and his team to lift the Webb Ellis trophy/our economy was rising the sun was shining on our country/we were free and alive with prosperity/Madiba exhibited the way to rule prohibiting racial and violent actions to correct previous fractions/divisions/the rainbow nation incorporated blacks white’s and Asians all as one/previously prohibited our lives weren’t limited/controlled/we were able to role as we pleased/he built it up now look at the ANC

Chorus:
Let’s how history repeats itself
It’s all about power and wealth
Nobody cares about the people’s health
It’s just lies coming out their mouths

3rd Verse:This is the ultimate verse where I try make sure South Africa doesn’t get worse/the ANC is lead by a dimwit a twit whatever it describes Julius Malema/take up arms and fight/get rid of the white opposition/what happened to human rights/Mandela’s sight didn’t see light being taken out of SA/Jacobs got his own way of leading many MP’s leaving the ANC/JZ needs to lead properly/don’t stop what I’m going to say/the way things are going down sounds familiar/that’s the shit you heard in the 1st verse/don’t let the curse of apartheid destroy the new South Africa and make it worse/innocent until proven guilty has been abused/at the end of the day it’s those who abide by the rules who lose/misuse of power excuses for failure/continue this behaviour to disrespect our saviour/Madiba why’d you waste your time in jail to see JZ become president on bail
Chorus:
History repeated itself
It’s all about power and wealth
Nobody cares about the people’s health
It’s just more lies coming out their mouths
Bridge:
It’s just more lies coming out their mouths
Coming out their mouths
I hereby declare the victor of this struggle
It has returned
And therefore
History has earned the respect
Watch out it will get you
