Lyrics

Inite the People

Written By: Andrae Corey Johnson

Chorus:
Who´s gonna inite the people,
from all this war and this evil.
Let´s think about our children,
so much trouble and problem.

1. Verse:
Like the colors of the rainbow, we so pressues,
love is the answer, why living suficious.
World-police we done know you, we have u suspicious, we ago squeeze out the truth out of them like citrus.
Work for what we want, we so ambitious.
Steels & kill, them live malicious, we bun the pope, now we nah save the bishop- why?
Dem a di root , dem a di stam and dem covicious, only war and death dem wish us.

2. Verse
Drop your arms & your weapons, come fight with word-sound.
I be standing their, we all falling, all going down, for a purpose, dem never listen fi me sound.
Well stick nah stone can not break my bone, can´t pass river jordan, the wicked ago droughn.
I will be doing Jah Work abroad and home, word-sound lick them harder then stone.
