    [Marcus Garvey dialogue 2]
    If you cannot do it, if you are not prepared to do it...then you will die.
    You race of cowards, you race of imbosiles, you race of good for nothings
    If you cannot do what other men have done
    What other nations have done, what other races have done
    Then you yourself shall die.

    True Black men and womb-genders, come out from behind the Skirt tail of FEAR.

    DAMIAN MARLEY LYRICS

    "Confrontation"

    Mr. President, Distinguished delegates...

    [H.I.M. Haile Selassie I dialect]

    [Bunny Wailer dialogue]
    Since the beginning of modern civilization
    Generations have witnessed and inherited the only conflicts of world wars
    But behold the marriage supper of the lamb and the bridegroom onto his bride
    Then shall the earth's children know the true expression of ONE LOVE
    Then mother earth shall honeymoon in peace.
    Forever eliminating the aspirations, lust and anguish of wars and rumors of wars...SELAH!

    [Verse 1]
    See it deh know the innocent going up in vapors
    And propoganda spreading inna the sunday papers not even superman coulda save you with him cape cause
    Red-a Judgement a blaze, blaze ya
    And Babylon a gamble the youth dem life like racehorse
    And gi dem a uniform and a shave dem head with razors
    And now the clock a strike war, don't be amazed cause
    inna dem churches tryin to save...saviours

    [Marcus Garvey dialogue 1]
    Can we do it? We can do it, we shall do it!

    [Verse 2]
    Boom!
    Tell dem fe uh draw mi out when the world government inna falling out
    Only few men survive crawling out
    Run left him collegues dem sprawling out
    NEARLY DEAD!
    Medic haffi haul him out
    And give him two tranquilizer fi stall him out
    DEH PON BASE!
    Can't get no calling out when him hear from the shout last week
    Him mistress find a new shoes
    Wife can't get no news and lately she starting to doubt
    SHE STILL SEARCHING!
    And the youth dem bawling out
    Working hard not to let it all come out
    Well it's not safe to go walk about
    A slaughterhouse from Bagdad to Waterhouse
    She start to arouse sometime she want a spouse
    She start go out, start beat a darker stout
    GUNS COME OUT!
    Working people funds run out
    Keep a show last week and no one come out
    BOMBS COME OUT!
    Mi gas tank just run out
    BOMBO CLATT!
    The scotch tape just run out
    WEED RUN OUT!
    Yuh senses must dumb out, Mi have a pound round a back deh a gwan sun out
    NAH COME OUT!
    Till the chalice bun out,
    NAH COME OUT!
    Till the malice bun out, A WAR!

    Zimbabwe to Berlin Wall
    Blazin' like a burnin' ball, loose ball...dat no work...IN WAR
    Sleeping...dat no work..IN WAR
    Can't wear jheri curl...IN WAR
    No diamond and pearl...IN WAR
    Can't drink weh a serve...IN BAR
    Gas wi **** up yuh nerves...IN WAR
    Shot wi blood up yuh shirt...IN WAR
    Can't go lift up no skirt...IN WAR
    Now disease and germs...IN WAR
    Can't go release your sperms...IN WAR
    Stamina must preserve...IN WAR
    Fire constantly burn...IN WAR
    RED...IT RED...IT RED...IT RED...IT RED!

    [Marcus Garvey dialogue 2]
    If you cannot do it, if you are not prepared to do it...then you will die.
    You race of cowards, you race of imbosiles, you race of good for nothings
    If you cannot do what other men have done
    What other nations have done, what other races have done
    Then you yourself shall die.

    [Repeat Verse 1]

    [Verse 3]
    SEE IT DEH NOW...Hey!
    Now wi fore parents sacrifice enough
    Dem blood sweat and tears run like syrup
    Any day a revolution might erupt, and the skys over Kingston lighting up
    For the new generation rising up, of youths now a days weh dem sighting up
    And through reasoning dem biding up,
    Searching for the sign and the sign is us,
    Searching for the truth all you find is us,
    Searching for the troops still behind is us,
    The almighty we recruit and we come from the root
    We build like roach building boot
    Weh just can't done, Rastafari we design tuff
    If a the fight for freedom sign me up
    Cause you Tell-Lie-Vision can't blind me up
    Soldiers and police dem wising up, realizing they're no more right than us
    Realizing there's no use fighting us
    Realizing their opening their eyes to see the same demoralizing life as us
    So we nah tek talk nor smiling up
    Cause the word temper tantrum boiling up,and who...
    Calling the shots and nah bust none
    Controlling the mind of the young, bring down...

    Bear famine, no rain nah fall from London to Dadeland mall
    All the son of the virgin bawl, institute of the church IN WAR
    Preaching and researching WAR
    Practice and rehearsing WAR
    Teaching and dem learning WAR
    Instigating and urging WAR
    Always keep alert in WAR
    Cause man will jump out a swerving car
    Now bees and birds IN WAR
    And the freaks and nerds IN WAR
    And the straight and curves IN WAR
    Forward and reverse IN WAR
    RED...IT RED...IT RED...IT RED...IT RED.
