(English Translation)

I am the sweeping clouds and rolling thunder

I am the creeping darkness as sun sets

The lightning strike


I am a warrior woman

Quiet, yet powerful

Black majik woman

Earth mama

Test my majik


I will not stop fighting

I will not be watered down

I will not die out

Yuwu


I am the black snake

Slithering across the earth

You won't see me

till the venom is in your veins


Rise

Children

Call on your ancestors

You are strong

Bring peace

Rise


I am you

You are me


We will not stop fighting

We will not be watered down

We will not die out

Yuwu
