[Intro: Lowkey]
It’s been a long time coming
Too long
Too long
It’s been in the making a quarter century
But it’s here now
It’s here now
If by the time you hear this album
I’m not here
You know why

[Hook: Mavado]
Tell ya, so mi say
Too many suffering too many tears
To see a youth I’m a know him for years
When me look around nobody care
The people dem a live inna fear

The system need to change right now
To much you do could a inna grieve right now
I know si the bigger is a give right now
After ghetto people a no steep right now (Woo ooh! oi!)

The system need to change right now
To much you do could a inna grieve right now
I know si the bigger is a give right now
After ghetto people a no steep right now (Yeah yeah!)

[Verse 1:]
My music is my natural resource, now I want it back
Til I sever every single chain I will not relax
Just constant attack, til my world looks like Monserrat
Contact my comrades, for combat, what’s conscious rap
When you say the truth, they attack like a Saber-tooth
Thinkin’ clear they make you disappear like you hate the fruit
We don’t need more Boens, we don’t need more Rebors, weed or Lyor Cohens
They tell about terrorism and tell about terrorists
Look up the definition and tell us what terror is
Only know the definition if the television tells us it,
Public Enemy #1 they treat me like Professor Griff
This album has been in the making a quarter century
Born to bless the beat and rap over recorded melody
I knew the truth since I was a small little boy
I am a product of the system I was born to destroy

[Hook: Mavado]
Me can’t believe I saw dem cheat people
And they fi protect and dem a leave people
I me no si no system fi di street people
Can’t believe di lead people

The system need to change right now
To much you do could a inna grieve right now
I know si the bigger is a give right now
After ghetto people a no steep right now (Woo ooh! oi!)

The system need to change right now
To much you do could a inna grieve right now
I know si the bigger is a give right now
After ghetto people a no steep right now (Yeah yeah!)

[Verse 2:]
On the news, they glorify their own henchmen
Support the troops, but won’t mention Joe Glenton
It’s cause the rappers are posing as the gangsters
While the government taking money as bonuses for bankers
In life you learn, to close your eyes and hold your tongue
But together we will overcome, there’s never been a chosen one
Still tryna understand, the land I stand on
I’ll probably die from cancer or [?]
I will never give up, I will never just quit
I will never give in, I will never submit
The reason that I came, is bleeding from the veins
Of the people cause we equal, only is the aim
This album has been in the making a quarter century
Born to bless the beat and rap over recorded melody
I knew the truth since I was a small little boy
I am a product of the system I was born to destroy

[Hook: Mavado]
Me can’t believe I saw dem cheat people
And they fi protect and dem a leave people
I me no si no system fi di street people
Can’t believe di money lead people

The system need to change right now
To much you do could a inna grieve right now
I know si the bigger is a give right now
After ghetto people a no steep right now (Woo ooh! oi!)

The system need to change right now
To much you do could a inna grieve right now
I know si the bigger is a give right now
After ghetto people a no steep right now (Yeah yeah!)

[Verse 3:]
If you’re subordinate to guys supplyin’ you orders
You’re fighting fire with fire, I’m fighting fire with water
When they kill me, I know I’ll die with a focused mind
Plus there’ll be millions of me, ready to multiply
Don’t just mention, acknowledge me, remember to honor me
My pen and this honesty, defendin’ equality
Declared a republic, and ended your monarchy
Your corporate dictatorship, pretends it’s democracy
I hold your bloodline, accountable for every crime
Adam Smith to , it’s all been a clever lie
Two choices now, revolution or genocide,
But thanks to Rupert neither one will be televised
This album has been in the making a quarter century
Born to bless the beat and rap over recorded melody
I knew the truth since I was a small little boy
I am a product of the system I was born to destroy

[Hook: Mavado]
Me can’t believe I saw dem cheat people
And they fi protect and dem a leave people
I me no si no system fi di street people
Can’t believe di money lead people

The system need to change right now
To much you do could a inna grieve right now
I know si the bigger is a give right now
After ghetto people a no steep right now (Woo ooh! oi!)

The system need to change right now
To much you do could a inna grieve right now
I know si the bigger is a give right now
After ghetto people a no steep right now (Yeah yeah!)
