Blaze Up a Fire

  • Some of us seeing what we know to become clear
    How many predictions come to pass this year
    Did they know that North Africa would erupt
    But what we know they don’t know that’s how they keep it from us
    So I burn a fire from the courts to the cops
    Spiritual wealth is what fills my cups
    I use this hip hop to profess my love
    I am not a pop star I’m a mother fucking thug
    I’m a fiend for the truth, drugs
    Getting lean off of liberty, pub
    You see me
    They let the wrong one in when they let me in
    You understand what I’m saying are you hearing me
    I hear what they saying with the undertones
    They telling me they went to Iraq to help them grow
    They’re so arrogant and so obvious
    They truth pours from the ground in Fallujah
    You see me

    Sometimes you need to blaze up a fire
    Let it be known for the record, your honor
    Sometimes you need to blaze up a fire
    Before the case gets settled, your honor

    Let the fire blaze in various ways
    Be it the road, be it the stage let the flames stay high
    Demystify the myths they fly
    Tell lies pon an I with their Tel lie Vision
    Subliminal programmes for old mans in prison
    Hold hands with the -ism that truly ain't him
    Paint him taint him decimate him
    Reduce to a fraction of flesh and skin
    We sing riddim for the culture sculpt precisely
    Devilish encryption could never subscribe we
    Word power and sound moving the molecule
    Burn a fool run a fool with many degrees
    Peppered decree
    Heat the reasons
    Heat the heathens
    Pagously
    These streets are paved with thievery
    False prophets false hopes false believery

    Sometimes you need to blaze up a fire
    Let it be known for the record, your honor
    Sometimes you need to blaze up a fire
    Before the case gets settled, your honor

    Sometimes you need to blaze up a fire
    Let it be known for the record, your honor
    Sometimes you need to blaze up a fire
    Before the case gets settled, your honor

    So lets form the battalion and stop battling for love of medallions
    Covered blood laid up in a ambulance
    Can't you see we're just africans with new garms on
    But no hearts mannequins
    While freemasons dance with the Vatican
    Speech I'm so tired of imagining
    So ready for riots to start happening
    Ye and obama I'm not backing him
    Sickening they drop bombs then sing hymns in church
    Like gods gone and these devils really think they're gonna win
    But they're wrong, cos I stand strong on every song and
    Pardon moi if you don't know I am
    The unknown man with unknown plans
    Writing my future with no hands
    Unplug your mind from the enemies programmes live life with benignity
    Famalam stop the killing spree do you want to make money or history
    Cos honestly hand on my heart no man in power's every done a thing for me
    Its not a mystery its liberties blaze up a fire to the victory

    Go tell the judge and the jury
    They don’t know the half of the story
    So if I break it down slowly
    They can really see where I’m coming from
    I had the spark when boy dem come
    Live it down, I never done
    When they showed up I never run
