DNA: DestiNation Africa

Let me take you on a ride
we'll travel through time and space,
destination Africa
birthplace of the human race.

We'll journey back to Africa
to where it all began,
home of the oldest tribe on Earth
known as the San Bushman.

All aboard the time machine
otherwise known as our blood,
we'll have no trouble getting around
with Y-Chromosomes under the hood.

We're going to trace man's origin
and the clues that will lead the way,
are mutated generic markers
that are found in men's DNA.

Through Europe, Asia, The Middle East
our blood trail takes us back,
showing all men paternally related
be they red, yellow, brown, white or black.

So brothers, stop killing your brothers.
Put your weapons down today,
for the proof that we're all related
lies in our DNA.
