Arik Fletcher (Zimbabwe)
Step into this place of shame,
Pray your heart remains the same,
Lead the way through this dark game,
Leave the place that has no name.
Step into this void of pain,
Drench yourself in crimson rain,
Wash away this mortal stain,
Leave me here alone again.
Step out of this cloud of hate,
Hide yourself in tears of fate,
Walk the path from Heaven's gate,
Leave before it is too late.
Step out of this lofty place,
Feel the cold and open space,
Back amongst the human race,
Leave your soul to Heaven's grace.
