The lyrics:

There’s a hole in my soul 
and I fill it with gold
never gonna get caught
never gonna get old
till a white cloud colors in my x-ray
death lives on the streets
you can’t pay it to go away
no, you never won a battle by staying at home
when the frontline of the war is raging in your bones
the people gotta know
though you walk through the valley
you never really walk alone
victim or survivor some days 
I don’t have a song in my heart
so I sing from my memory
and of my friends lost
I was born to die 
now live to regret it
blew breath in death's face
and said not just yet
no, you never won a battle by staying at home
when the frontline of the war is raging in your bones
You shouldn't count your scars 
in the dead of night
you can't wake up in the middle of the fight
when you stab that thing in its chest
only losers whine about their best
and you still have the rest of your knife
no, you never won a battle by staying at home
when the frontline of the war is raging in your bones
I close my eyes at the sky
and say: "Mama, I'm coming home"
Though I walk through the valley 
I never really walk alone                      

*Written by Hunter Kennedy

10 of South Africa’s biggest music heroes.  1 stage.  3 Hours of non-stop power hits.

The fearless and formidable BLOOD BROTHERS made history as South Africa’s first rock super group when they banded together at Carnival City on 18 July 2015 to join the Vrede Foundation in the fight against cancer. 

Ten of the biggest names in rock were recruited to destroy the stage with their legendary songs and the songs from their favourite international bands (which influenced their sound), during a killer 3 hour long set.

And now Arno Carstens (Springbok Nude Girls), Francois van Coke (Fokofpolisiekar & Van Coke Kartel), George van der Spuy (Taxi Violence), Albert Frost (Blues Broers), Kobus de Kock Jnr. (Black Cat Bones), Hunter Kennedy (Fokofpolisiekar), Rian Zietsman (Taxi Violence), Jason Hinch (ex Black Cat Bones, Boargazm), Isaac Klawansky (Shadowclub) and Loedi Van Renen (Taxi Violence) are thirsty for more.

The Blood Brothers are coming for Cape Town on the 23rd of September to bring one night of mayhem to Grand West Casino’s stage and raise more funds for the Vrede Foundation.

The Vrede Foundation’s aim is to generate awareness amongst young South Africans (aged 15-29) regarding cancer and at the same time raise funds to provide financial aid to young South Africans with this disease.
