Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those that trespass against us
Although them again we will never, never, never trust.
Dem noh know weh dem do, dig out yuh yei while dem sticking like glue
Fling, skin, grin while dem plotting fah you /True, Ah Who???
Forgive them Father for they know not what they do.
Beware the false motives of others/Be careful of those who pretend to be brothers
And you never suppose it’s those who are closest to you, to you
They say all the right things to gain their position
Then use your kindness as their ammunition
To shoot you down in the name of ambition, they do.
Why every Indian wanna be the chief? /Feed a man ’til he’s full and he still want beef
Give me grief, try to tief off my piece /Why for you to increase, I must decrease?
If I treat you kindly does it mean that I’m weak?
You hear me speak and think I won’t take it to the streets
I know enough cats that don’t turn the other cheek/ But I try to keep it civilized like Menelik
and other African czars observing stars with war scars.
Get yours in this capitalistic system /So many caught or got bought you can’t list them
How you gonna idolize the missing? /To survive is to stay alive in the face of opposition
Even when they comin’ gunnin’ /I stand position.
L’s known the mission since conception /Let’s free the people from deception
If you looking for the answers /Then you gotta ask the questions
And when I let go, my voice echoes through the ghetto /
Sick of men trying to pull strings like Geppetto
Why black people always be the ones to settle /March through these streets like Soweto
Like Cain and Abel, Caesar and Brutus, Jesus and Judas /Backstabbers do this
It took me a little while to discover /Wolves in sheep coats who pretend to be lovers
Men who lack conscience will even lie to themselves, to themselves
A friend once said, and I found to be true /That everyday people, they lie to God too
So what makes you think, that they won’t lie to you?
Gwan like dem love while dem rip yuh to shreds
Trample pon yuh heart and lef yuh fi dead
Dem a yuh fren who yuh depen pon from way back when
But if yuh gi dem yuh back den yuh mus meet yuh end
Dem noh know wey dem do /Dem no know, dem no know, dem no know
Dem no know, dem no know way dem do
