There is tension building inside i and I’m trusting i spirit to guide i

Even if no else overstands I have got to do what it demands

i eyes and ears might deceive i and friends and family might leave i

But is righteous tension a brew so I must prepare for what I might have to do

 

I don’t have a problem in the world

solution oriented, simple island girl

Passionate, compassionate with patience as a science

Endorsing love and unity promoting self reliance

Balancing  I emotions tempering i temperament

Maintaining i composure and learning when to vent

But as injustice and oppression grip the masses more and more

The constant pressure makes them numb but instead it makes i sure

 

That there is tension building inside i and I’m trusting i spirit to guide i

Even if no else overstands I have got to do what it demands

i eyes and ears might deceive i and friends and family might leave i

But is righteous tension a brew so I must prepare for what I might have to do

 

Misleaders use semantics, to manipulate us

Meaningless promises to keep us in a state of

Catatonic apprehension empty hands up to the sky

The art of misdirection used to disguise the lie

Telling us decisions made are for our good, by those whom we elect

When in actuality they merely reflect

An ulterior agenda to make profit in their term

So the people only matter when those people help them earn

So dem currup’ system get burn… hot

 

That’s why there’s tension building inside i and I’m trusting i spirit to guide i

Even if no else overstands I have got to do what it demands

i eyes and ears might deceive i and friends and family might leave i

But is righteous tension a brew so I must prepare for what I might have to do

 

Imagine the morning you awake to find the soldiers on your street

Armored tanks on every boulevard and police on every beat

Helicopters hovering but a stillness in the air

How will you be feeling? relieved? Or filled with fear?

Then the radio announces that the leader’s going to speak

Adrenaline explodes as your attention starts to peak

He says “you may already notice all the plans for your protection”

They’ve been put in place to neutralize potential insurrection

But have no fear the force is here with tear gas, bombs and guns

So no undesirables can compromise the flow of funds

Tell me where will you be standing what will you plan to do?

When you realize the enemy is you!

 

Which side of the law are you on? are you with the masses or are you the protected one?

What side of the law holds your place? Do they defend you or can they stick that gun in your face?

Tell me where does your allegiance lie? Does the struggle entertain you or does it make you cry?

Is it clear where your conscience resides? One day you may have to deside

 

That’s why there is tension building inside

but I’m never gonna give Jah up

No matter what
