MITOCHONDREAL EVE



We go back until all lines converge into one

Every person, each destination

We've got roots from the same earth, one nation

African, Asian, European

Because we are the children of the same sun

Unity, harmony proclamation

DNA passes from mother to son

Yes, I am mitochondrial Eve



The greater distance that you fall from the tree

It makes no difference to me

Yes it is, taking me over

Divine connection across all humanity

It is connecting all beasts

And it is, taking me over



Singing from Tanzania to East London

Tell me about the cultural celebration

No room for hatred, discrimination

No time for fighting or insurrection

Because we are talking bout the congregation

The brothers and the sisters of creation

The disappearing boarders of our generation

A global brotherhood it is our salvation



Yes, East Africa is where we began

Civilisation, modern man

Spread cross the earth in all direction

Man fighting man lose the connection

Now we start thinking some of us are divine

Canonise one and others malign

But the irrefutable truth is in I

Cos we are mitochondrial Eve



Back to the forest, back to the trees, back to the ocean, back to the mineral (repeated)



The greater distance that you fall from the tree

It makes no difference to me

Yes it is, taking me over

Divine connection across all humanity

It is connecting all beasts

And it is, taking me over
