lyrics

There is only one way out
When the key is turned
Lift the chains and shuffle through
The Door of No Return

Say goodbye to Africa
It’s time to take your turn
One by one to exit....through
The Door of No Return

The Govenor sells his soul for you
The ship waits on the shore
Say goodbye to all you knew
The Door of No Return

Say goodbye to Africa
Goodbye to all you’ve learned
There is only one way out
The Door of No Return

My father was a farmer
And I his only son
I spent my days in fields of green
Beneath the Ghana Sun
They promised me a better life
Now for my life I mourn
As I wait in darkness for
The Door of No Return

The dungeons of Elmina sit
High above the shore
Two will die for each one through
The Door of No Return

Centuries of Slavery
and still the key was turned
Millions of my brothers
Through the Door of No Return

My sister too was taken
I know not where she’s gone
She spent her days in fields of green
Beneath the Ghana sun
They promised her a better life
Now for her life I mourn
As I wait in darkness for
The Door of No Return

Today the dungeon holds no more
Lesson to be learned
Never will there be again
A Door of No Return

My sisters and my brothers live
As free men for we’ve burned
Forevermore, the slave trade door
The Door of No Return
