Dub War - Pain

Artist: Dub War
Release: Pain


1. Mental

Killing this and killing that
Whicha gun or with a knife
Strangulation out your light
Me no man no trouble
Me no man a strife

Live it good and live it right
Crazy people in the community
Murder in the backyard
Mental it’s really mental

Too much murder in the backyard
Cain slew Abel the very first murder
After dat it got worster and worster
All the old boy a pop on a pop
Lick lick lick lick lick lick shot
In your front or in your back

They don’t care they ain’t got no mercy
Compassion blood thirsty
Bomb construction
Forest destruction
Pollution
Volcano eruption

What’s it gonna be like in 2033
Will we see the extinction of every species
Including you
And including me

2. Respected

Come talk it straight
And not at an angle
Building news and views
Reports of your scandals
Nazis on the move
Telling lies and propaganda
Are you supporting the Ku Klux Klan?

To be respected (not stopped and rejected)
To be respected (not stopped and rejected)
Reaching out to the world
And all who live in it
Help your brother man
So we can live better

It is not your colour that makes you a man
But the things that you do when you’re on this land
To be respected (not stopped and rejected)
To be respected (not stopped and rejected)

A little before that in Africa we were born
That was the time we used to stand strong
We used to fight for our freedom
Then they along with their musket and guns
And they went ‘pam’ ‘pam’ then they shot everyone
That was the custom of the European
Original American, Aborigine man, Bosnian
English man, Welsh man
Respect

3. Strike It

Funkin’ without a fear
Yeah! You know what time it be (be) (be)
‘Cause we a-come
An wee no ramp
An wee no skin up wee teet
Top of the mosh
And we feelin’ sweet
Upon the hardcore ragga tip
That’s how we dweet
Mix it up and then we roll it neet

And we strike when the iron is hot

Strike it – while the iron is hot

We gotta strike while the iron is hot (that type o’ noise)

Strike it – while the iron is hot
We gotta strike while the iron is hot

I never knew the base it would be thumping
I never knew that the groove would be pumping
For years you got away with it fool
Watch the man and don’t watch the tool

Twice a rough and we’re coming back again
Peace and justice that’s we defend
But don’t want no ethnic cleansing
Me pump up me fat check
We know the white boy, I know the red boy, I know yellow one
The black boy too

Blend it up and then were feeling fine
Unuh dat weh we want de music we love
Reggae music, punk music, hip hop music

4. Pain

Gangsters on the corner
Dem all fire gunshot
Police in adem uniform
They fire shots back

Innocent bystanders
Bite the bullet once again
With laws full of discrepancy
It’s only us to blame

You say you want to work it out
Yet stick a gun into my mouth
An’ then you calmly shout
This world’s at peace
I surely doubt

I see no equal rights or justice only
Pain
Dat’s running in your vain
Man made pain
An’ it’s only us to blame
Oh well
The activists they’re on a mental rampage

5. Nations

Hey your country needs you
They give you weapons
And they send you abroad
Just to fight for another man’s country
And steal the things that he can’t afford

A government full of promise
Never made me feel at home
And in a system that abused me
Left me standing on my own

Well I may not have a fancy car no
And I may not own my own home
But my choice of paths to follow
Will always be my own

Oh yeah
Who’s gonna save the nations
How we gonna save the nations

Oh yeah
How we gonna save the nations
Are you gonna save the nations

It’s time to make up your mind
And if you substitute your money with a little bit of lovin’
You can leave all your worries behind

Together we can be much stronger
Brothers one and all
So with a hand in a hand
Let’s make a stand
And break down all the walls

Well I may not have a fancy car no
And I may not own my own home
But my choice of paths to follow
Will always be my own

Well I may not have a fancy car no
And I may not own my own home
But my choice of paths to follow
Will always be my own

Oh yeah
Who’s gonna save the nations
How we gonna save the nations

Oh yeah
How we gonna save the nations
Are you gonna save the nations

Save the nations!
Save the…
Save the nations!
Save the nations!
Save the nations!

Well I may not have a fancy car no
And I may not own my own home
But my choice of paths to follow
Will always be my own

Well I may not have a fancy car no
And I may not own my own home
But my choice of paths to follow
Will always be my own

Oh yeah
Who’s gonna save the nations
How we gonna save the nations

Oh yeah
How we gonna save the nations
Are you gonna save the nations?

6. Gorrit

Things are getting bad
The worst we ever had
It’s time that we did someting about it
Instead of staying in bed with the covers on your head

Ya know we got the power to fight it
World disaster
Killer disease
Problem with the goverment
Cutting down trees
Nobody cares

Children screaming please
Somebody help dem
Down on my knees
Original bad boy
Guning down the street
Gunshot fire

An’ just kiss dem teet
When mama she’s dead
And the kids are dead
An’ the world’s gone crazy
In his head

Crime is on the increase
Police are getting worst
All the real bad boys
End up in a hearse

Now mama she’s dead
And the kids are dead
An’ the worlds gone crazy
In his head

7. Spiritual Warfare

Nuff tings a gworn pon dee land
Dat the world can’t understand
But the way me a cheak it
You know the truth it is at hand
An stands for the right
An it never could stand
Up for the wrong

There’s a realm in the earth
Unseen to the eye but it still carries on
Spiritually, it’s mystically, super naturally

There’s war, there’s war, there’s war
Spiritual warfare
Spiritual warfare
Spiritual warfare
There is spiritual warfare

Chicken licken come alone an he was telling everyone
The world is falling down
Check the root of history there is a lot
Who would agree that the world is falling down
Spiritually it’s mystically super naturally
It’s war, it’s war, it’s war, it’s war

9. Nar Say A Ting

Funkin’ it in the house
Now in the almighty sight
Violence is wrong
Don’t beat up your girl
An’ talk about you’re a badman
‘Cause you’re an idiot

You ain’t got nothing going on
Nothing going on
You ain’t got nothing going on

Hypocricy, racialism, crack heads on the front line
Full of ism and saism
Nar say a ting you know
You nar say a ting
Way you ain’t got nothing going on

They’re talking about the rules and regulations everyday
The earth leaders break them in every way
Economy mash
The pound it crash
The queen and her family, they had to dash
Out the back door ’cause they can’t take it no more
An’ from they do dat we know they idiot fe sure
Nar say a ting

You ain’t got nothing going on
D-u-b w-a-r, dat a we yes dat a we
D-u-b w-a-r, dat a we yes dat a we
‘Cause they talk world peace
But they don’t want world peace
All they want is the war to increase
The poor as long as you stay poor
More money the rich
Das how they it for sure

Nar say a ting
You ain’t got nothing going on
I am gonna tell the world about you
I am gonna let the people know
Gonna sing it from the hill an’ trees
In a da almighty sight
Violence is wrong
