Song Interpretation
Influenced by Steven Biko (who was immortalized in the Peter Gabriel song Biko), leader of the Black Consciousness Movement in South Africa in the 1970ís. The Richard Attenborough Film (1987) also about Biko shares the song title. The song deals with life in pre-apartheid (and some might say current) South Africa.
