Telling Lies – Jamaican artist Elad

July 28 2016

Yu network tell so much lie, it come in  like the real

Elad ina the building, Babylon a get burning

Say dutty Babylon you will be burning

Falling like wall a Berlin

The legacy you stole

You will be returning, one day

Cause you see,  you neva practice, what you preach

telling lies 2Telling lies cause deceit,

You be telling lies, cause deceit is your game

Murder in God’s name,

Murdering in God’s name

Fire pan Babylon

Six million dead ina Congo-land

congo holocaust

Pan the story you put a media ban

Cause Black lives no matter ina your programme,

That’s so appalling

Me sey yu network tell so much lie, it come in  like the real

Turn Libya ina battlefield

Vehicles belonging to forces loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi explode after an air strike by coalition forces, along a road between Benghazi and Ajdabiyah

Libya – from Africa’s wealthiest nation to a battlefield

Syria suffering can’t find a meal ina the morning

Children starving

Say In God You Trust but that’s a lie

Iraq still a suffer Afghanistan a cry

While you a spend millions put drones ina the sky

Fi more bombing

Babylon tell so much lie come in like the truth

Build up your army fi try stray the youth

Every day you a search fi a new recruit

Fi do you warring

But dutty Babylon you will be burning

Falling like wall a Berlin

The legacy you stole

You will be returning, one day

Cause you see, you neva practice, what you preach

Telling lies, cause deceit,

You be telling lies, cause deceit is your game

Murder in God’s name,

Murdering in God’s name

Murdering in God’s name

american indians 2Them use smallpox kill the Red Indians

Thief way the land from the Mexicans

Rob the Aztec and the Mayans

Left them bawling; without a warning

Stole Africans from the motherland

Bring we forward to the Caribbean

plantation slaverySlave we aff pan the plantation

Fi cane farming,(Babylon yu falling)

Say we came here before Columbus

Him no discover nowhey, yu presumpsous

Is a murderer you waan present us, as a darling

(Fire a go scald him)

But dutty Babylon you will be burning

Falling like wall a Berlin

The legacy you stole

You will be returning, one day

Cause you see, you neva practice, what you preach

Telling lies cause deceit,

You be telling lies, cause deceit is your game

Murder in God’s name,

Murdering in God’s name

(Fire pan Babylon)

Six million dead ina Congo-land
