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

Legitimate - Jah9

Legitimate or not
Some claim indemnity from the original plot
As though their integrity cold still be intact
What is likelihood of that
When if you trace the source of each resource they've got
They're tapped into the veins of the masses the system maintains
Feeding on their youthfulness and draining from their brains
Then when the weak ones are rejected armed and turned toward the strife
They return with force and take away their life

But make no mistake
There is life in abundance for all to partake
So war is redundant and hate is futile in the face of love
But too many put feelings in the place of love
We all are the same
The essence of life in this physical plane
And nothing can restrain the love, you just have to claim the love

Yes I remember the censorship of showing your roots
Deception with no lye conditioning for the youths
Straightening their follicles while twisting their minds
Replacing old tradition with their programs for decline
But as I rebel my natty swells defiant of the taming1
My natural advantage I'm proclaiming
These spirals map the course of life and represent the force of life
Connected to the source of life

So make no mistake
There is life in abundance for all to partake
So war is redundant and hate is futile in the face of love
But too many put feelings in the place of love
We all are the same
The essence of life in this physical plane
And nothing can restrain the love, you just have to claim the love

From the days of Menelik and Makonnen
King man them a hackle, ites up in the tabernacle them
A so we tackle them, slew them in the battle then
Because them have we lock up and a herd we like a cattle then
So no me naa go hestitate fi draw
Whether it be the weapon or the herb in a me Jaw
The earth in a me paw from the first vision i saw
Incision of the chord that did tie me to mama
We learning what we want
Understand the boy dem cant, violate the covenant
It carries universal law
So who fi curse weh Jah bless we leff them in a awe
It work withouth a flaw, from in a addis ababa
No we naa go harbor, a hotta hotta laaava
Make up u mind which side you deh can't stand up pon no border
So, which one you rather, riches now or after
One life you live, you sure of that?
Well watch it come back harder
What bout the curse you ago lef you son and daughter
A try scrape up the broughta, in a drought a dash weh water
No make them heathen deh go stray you from you path
Cause even when u dead you can't go escape them ya wrath

So I have no fear
And though I have no enemy I am aware
That the few seek the plenty for themselves
And justice is rare without material wealth
When we delegate our fate to someone else
But fortunately, I claim dominion over my destiny
With the wisdom and power from knowledge of the key
The tree of life is rooted in me
So even in the midst of trials I am free

So make no mistake
There is life in abundance for all to partake
So war is redundant and hate is futile in the face of love
But too many put feelings in the place of love
We all are the same
The essence of life in this physical plane
And nothing can restrain the love, you just have to claim the love

So make no mistake
There is life in abundance for all to partake
So war is redundant and hate is futile in the face of love
But too many put feelings in the place of love
We all are the same
The essence of life in this physical plane
So nothing can restrain the love,
You just have to claim it you just have to claim it
You just have to claim the love
