lyrics

Roots- Live- Natty- Breathe!
Gun pon Cock, Selector, witha Nine Mil in the Sleeve
I'm tellin you, Watch Out How You Handle Your Beef on the Street
cuz Most Vandals’ll put a Nine Mil in the Teeth!
God is the Only Way, but Not Chosen by EveryBody-dee
You Can’t Beg for Your Life in the Cemetary-ee-ee

You’ve been Robbed from the Cradle, Cursed from the Prenatal
Trained from a Youth to do Whatever they Say So
Hooked and Addicted, Separated and Sifted
Shifted into Clicks, And - Ripped from Your Gifts
You’ve been Told that You're Worthless, Told that it’s Urgent
so they Got You Rushin Around, not Focused on What’s Pertinent
They Said “You gotta Buy it”, That “You gotta Have it”
Even Though You don’t Have Cash, Like they Expect Magic
- so they Gave You Credit, Got You Indebted
Got You Distressed, and Distracted from the Aesthetic
They Told You that All Paths Lead to God
Even though God Himself Said “there’s Only One Gate Inna Mi Yard”
But You didn’t Hear Cuz they Got You Afraid n Nervous
-and from this Circus Cometh the Weapons that Hurt Us
as they Demand that You Tell but Tell You Not to Ask
Like Wisdom Intelligence is a Thing of the Past
Keep You Locked! and I don’t Just Mean Physically
Cuz the Biggest Prison they’ve Built is to Jail You Mentally
