We are the sons of Kivu; you cannot move us at all

They say “in times of tyranny and injustice when law oppresses the people
the outlaw takes his place in history”.
So be it. So be Resolution 2089,
But there is one path we shall never choose… and that is surrender or submission
So be it.

Come March 23rd 2009, rules must be obeyed
Thinking we belonged… we were fools to play by the rules
It’s always the same
It’s just a shame
It’s been too long coming on us
Well, “no chance, no destiny, no fate, can hinder the firm resolve of a determined people”
Dare you not question our resolve for,
We are the sons of Jacob; you cannot move us at all
We are the sons of Moses; you cannot move us at all
We are the sons of David; you cannot move us at all
We are the sons of my father’s land; you cannot move us at all
We are the sons of Kivu; you cannot move us at all
Dare you not question my resolve for,
You’ll feel the full force of my wrath
Like you did before yester year in,
Bunagana, Rutshuru, Rumangabo, Sake and Goma

It’s time you recognized my equality
It’s time you recognized my existence
It’s time you recognized my father’s land
We will prevail, I know we will cause our hearts tell us so.
Dare you not question our resolve
You’ll hear about it soon
It’s spreading through the land
What’s that sound? What’s that dreadful rumble?
Do I hear what I think I’m hearing?
Won’t somebody tell me what I hear?
In the distance that roaring noise
That pounding thunder and blinding light
It’s the awaking of the Sultan
It’s the arrival of his knights
It’s the army of men knocking on Goma’s gates
It’s another 20th November
Bless our brethren, whose blood we share,
Bless our brethren, whose blood was shed as you guided them home
Bless our brethren, whose tragedy two decades ago has given birth to our success in battle
Bless our brethren, tormented for being our brethren
Bless our brethren, tormented by the vultures that feed on the African carcass
Oh God of wisdom, power and might; guide us home as well, as we commend our fighters to you
God Bless the M23, Raise up her spirits during these trying times
Raise up her spirits, hear our prayers and bless us
Bless the Sultan, bless the Commandante, and bless the cadres and fighters
That they may carry on the struggle with courage, determination and hope
Bless our efforts to unite and lift ourselves up as we rise slowly to an uncertain future
Come Spirit, Descend Spirit
Come Holy Spirit
