Testo della canzone Intention (Jah9), tratta dall'album New Name

Intention - Jah9

I'm beginning to wonder about your intensions
Too many instances of deception
Too many alibis and excuses
Too many attempts to deny the abuses
Too many reasons to complain
Too many losses too little gain
The very existence is a strain on the people

I know cause I am woman so I can see
That life don't reside where there isn't no harmony
And I sing cause I care and wouldn't want anybody
That I love to be circumstanced out of existence

Yes I'm beginning to wonder about your attention
Where is it focusing in what direction
Is your life force in execution
Forming opinions or finding solutions
Declaring the victim, sharing the blame
Representing the potential for change but only in name
Then with taxation and oppression put a strain on the people

I speak what I know; Words are reserved for the truth
Not perfect but aware of the example I set for the youth
And I sing cause I care and wouldn't want none of these sons and daughters
To go astray when I could have paved the way

Yes I'm beginning to tire of all these expenses
Borne by the people relegated to zinc fences
Keeping the resources out of their reach
Breeding frustration with the values you teach
In the media everyday then deny them a way to attain it
But force them to work and maintain it and not take a share
Then the police force the fear into the brains of the people

I know from experience that the system is flawed and unfair
So I live outside it as much as I possibly dare
And I sing for justice in a time when the people
May be too distracted to even care
My voice will still be there

The people have to work so hard while those with the power keep the plenty for themselves. Meaningless competition for scares resources in a material driven world. Our children have no example of integrity and industry and love. And so for these atrocities against humanity the perpetrators will have to pay.

I know from experience that the system is flawed and unfair
So I live outside it as much as I possibly dare
And I sing for justice in a time when the people
May be too distracted to even care
My voice will still be there
