lyrics

Chorus (Repeat)
This is all that I do and all that I love
For my fam, my sisters and all my thugs
It's the rebel music that run through my blood
put it all on the line till I catch a slug

Verse 1:

I'm reporting live on location
from the Jamaican capital - Kingston, St. Andrew
overpopulated, poor, uneducated
we hardly get the basics like health care
and social welfare, yo, we need help here
Financial aid made us the bankers' slaves
teenage boys raised in the gangsta ways
teenage girls stuck getting Pampers changed
it's a shame it came to this, streets so dangerous
cops train to hit but still aim and miss
blatant murder, only a few times accidents
harassing youth in the garrisons
innocent prisoners without any visitors
It's ridiculous how they keep us trapped in illusion
distractions from the media, lies from our leaders
false hope from the preachers, they can't reach us

Chorus (Repeat)

Verse 2:

Everybody want heaven in this hellhole
some of them get lost and they sell their souls
for a piece of paper, can't even treat a neighbour
with respect, unless he paid a fee or favour
they say we need a prayer or a Jesus saviour
cause we in danger, looking for easy capers
only seen as labour and votes to keep the state up
corrupting people's nature, it's not a free Jamaica
the system make us suffer on a daily basis
funeral homes got faces of all ages
jail is full of cages that's overpopulated
courts got crazy cases from bail applications
to murders on the pavement, it's just everyday shit
but it don't phase us, we stuck in the matrix
and it can't be one man that's gonna change us
it's gonna take the whole entire nation to raise up

What the fuck?
You nah mean?
Feel what I'm saying?
Like... if we ever going to see any change
It can't be... we can't be expecting somebody else to do it for us
We have to do it for ourselves
Y'know?
It's just the way of the world
Go out for your own
Let's do this
For us

Chorus (Repeat)
