Cure :: Songezile Madikida

The term, Blood on my Hands on the other hand is normally used to acknowledge one’s complicity and contribution to an adverse or lethal condition. I used this commonly used expression as a title to highlight our own complicity, as society, to our own undoing and demise. The song by Nathi also speaks of a long wait and a need to reconcile with a loved one. He seems to have tried everything but to no avail, his lover has disappeared or has abandoned him.
