lyrics

My Life is scattered
My mother died when I was 2 years old
My father married another woman
My stepmum had four children with my father
She was responsible for her own children
But irresponsible towards me
When my father got very ill
I had to take care of him
I had to go from door to door asking for food
I had to leave school when I was doing grade 7

Every day I was thoroughly beaten
After which I had to search water,
Wash the dishes, feed my stepbrothers and sisters
While I had to go without food
Eventually my stepmother went to town
Leaving my father dying

When I look at my parents' graves
I see mine next to them
I am suffering
I'm living in Hell

These words are written by Genius, a young African man, when he was a young orphan living on the streets of Zimbabwe.
Through a chain reaction, an Englishman living in Argentina, without having met Genius, composed music for the words and recorded them across the planet with Alex James. We have created this page to try to support Genius in whatever way we can. He is now in school loving Sciences!!
