Fire![Appears on the album "One Day"]
Written by R. Jalani Horton

I heard the leaders talking (2x)
And dem say, fire! fire! fire! fire!
Never no intention to do, what is right
Never no intention, for the people to unite
Never no intention to do what is right
Murderer, murderer, murderer, murderer

If you’re not afraid of me, and I’m not afraid of you
What are we fighting for, if you do not envy me
And I do not envy you, what are we fighting for
Are your people starving? Did I cause you some suffering?
I come in Jah and bring peace offering
But, all I hear you say…

[Chorus]
[Refrain]

Damn hypocrits, with their firesticks
Gathered from nations that hate dem
Don’t know the nature of the politriks
To keep us divided only promotes dem
So, they spreading grief, in the land for you and me
But by their deeds,  we’ll judge dem in history
Ready?

[Chorus]

I don’t want no, no bloodshed
I man don’t hunt no, other man’s head
What will be gained yeah, by another man’s death
The dead man don’t pray no, and the ruthless Jah no bless
This is my creed yea, my word to the end
Generations of my seeds, will bring war to an end
Lord, yea, lord, yea (2x)

What are we fighting for, what are we fighting for
What are we fighting for, what are we fighting for

Lyrics

some man a walk, hills & valleys, some man a grow up in the alley
rude boys dem know, tings ain’t no folly, cause all the while,
the city still a grow

u walk ur mile, u walk ur mile, u walk ur mile

& so they build & they build & they build, & don’t give a damn yea,
that we live, & we live, & we live, in the squalor of dem
filling their jails, their slums, their ghettos, we call apartments,
when last you see, another man, in Sankofa store dem

[chorus]

hey little rose, growing in the ghetto, where everyday,“hustle” is the motto
where developers can get bank loans, to get richa off ah we bones,
so go be a teacha before u have a baby, go be a doctor before u want mercedez
go be an astronaut to get high, cause without us,
the city still a grow

[chorus]

some man a walk, hills & valleys, some man a grow, down in the alley
rude bwoy dem know, tings ain’t no folly, cause all the while,
the city still a grow,

[chorus]

and so they build & they build & they build and they build & they
and we live & we live & we live & we live & we (2x)
build & we live & they build & we live and they build & we live
& they build & we live

[chorus]

Lyrics

but that’s how tings a go, that’s how the story flow
they say that i say so, liberation music no joke

can u keep ur head, when everyone is losing theirs?
can u keep ur head, when they all blame u instead?
can u keep ur head, when ur pushed in the corner?
good times show smiles, hard times show character?

[chorus]

 

well this man tell that man, but this man nah facts-man
so that man tell the next man, so the next man hear confusion
& confusion make our divide go so--, & our potential it get sucked like blood
and dem veiled in righteousness, sesame street big time muppet show
& all dem talk is consciousness, but dem lies long like dem damn ego

[chorus]

 

step back and look, so meh ovas de works of de unjust,
and it ah de same works of de claim to be righteous,
who always fight first, spread germs like dust,
my brain might burst, cause dem ah de same ones who say
dem fight against de ones who taught us, nowhere dem brought us,
everyone in a constant cuss, lies for we guide-so now we mind full ah rust,
dem claim dem kno what dem talking about-so you think say that dem just,
turn around dem stab you inna de back so now-who can you trust?
neva inna de flesh, because de flesh do lust,
not only after people, but also de gold rush,
wha bring about negative feelings like seh when man get jealous,
cyaa think for we self-so we rather go with what man tell us,
if we do not commit to dem religion-dem say hell burn fi us,
if we are de ones with no future, then why dem envy us, vy us
why dem envy us…

 

don’t let what they do, control u, today!
