Just in time for Freedom Day last year, 27 April, South African band Rubber Duc uploaded their new song – #StepDown. Now, a year later, it’s going viral all over again as the “new South African anthem”.

Vocalist Nick Jordaan said #StepDown was inspired by all the “beautiful, passionate, brave, and courageous people of our beloved country, South Africa. #BeTheChange.”

Lyrics include “all that we are has given us something, it’s in the way we know we’re not nothing” and “Zuma – step down”. (See full lyrics below video.)

Jordaan says: “If you support what the song stands for, give it a SHARE:)”

Step Down Lyrics

Hold your horses dear, the tumbleweed is rolling in and the wind ain’t gonna run this time of year.
So feel the reigns, hold on tight, we’re leaving with the storm. In this place a young visionary was born.

Who’s the healer here? To heal the souls on this rocky road, oh the crows are gonna come, this time of year.
So fix this trail, choose your side, we’re riding with the storm. On this road a young visionary was born.

Zuma…Step down.

The river’s drawing near. The river mouth’s just a few miles South, and the water’s gonna rise, this time of year.
The current sides with the ocean tides, we’re floating with the storm. On this boat a young visionary is born.

Zuma…Step down.

So we’ll go cross where the river’s dry, pray the road up to heaven’s on the other side. And we’ll write a melody like this.

All that we are has given us something. It’s in the way we know we’re not nothing. Al that we are has given us…All that we are has given us…
We are waiting, waiting for something…
