lyrics

This is dedicated to all the freedom fighter
All the fallen soldiers – rest in peace
All Maroon
People Army
Bhagat Singh Shaheed – rest in peace
Chandra Shekhar Azad and Kishenji

It’s just a terrible terrible thing
We can’t begin imagining
Unno better move slow
Guns on their hips and get ready to blow
But oh no!
It’s just a terrible terrible thing
We can’t begin imagining
Unno better move slow
Guns on their hips and get ready to blow

The whole of them try to bury us in violence
It’s like them gwaan mad and have the license
To leave us in a silence
My people please draw together, you know we need some guidance

Chains upon my ankle
So I only walk slow
Police they come to trample
Anger started to grow
I said back away
Devil go go go
Try to make examples
Gotta let my people know
I said oh oh
Azad killing was a murder
I said oh oh
Kishenji killing was a murder

They take me away in the middle of the night
Eyes blind folded, No rescue in sight
Want to run run away or put up a fight
I know I wont survive to see the morning light

Azad Killing was a murder
Kishenji killing was a murder
Big up all of the elder
Like Bhagat Singh the martyr

Politicians tell lies to get elected
Next thing she turned the guns on them
Double crossed cuz she had a double intention
Trust us? Trust nothing from them
When you see say them have an ulterior motive
So you know we don’t trust parliament
It’s plain to see that it’s a business for them
So you know we bon di fire pan them

In twenty-twelve the defence budget raise by one point seven four lak crore
That don’t spell peace, that spells war
That don’t spell peace, that spell war
What do they get all these German guns them for?
What they get all the American guns them for
What do they get Israeli guns them for?
That don’t spell peace that spell war

I’m standing, I won’t run away
They’re dividing, I won’t run away
I’m fighting only way that I know
I’m standing, I won’t run away
