Inspired by Nelson Mandela's book "Long Walk to Freedom", the song focuses on the theme of "Sailing away", which here can be viewed as an escape from the overwhelming obstacles one faces, or also the forced sailing of the slaves into their forced destiny.

Comments for Mandela's Song
Ramez has made a very worthy contribution. The "I'm just a man" punchline does seem to fit the benign dignity of Mr Mandela, and the song as a whole is just uplifting and life-affirming
A good sung, well performed and recorded.
