Testo della canzone Tension (Jah9), tratta dall'album Songbird Riddim

Tension - Jah9

There is tension building inside i
And I'm trusting i spirit to guide i
Even if no else overstands I have got to do what it demands
I eyes and ears might deceive i and friends and family might leave i
But is righteous tension a brew so I
Must prepare for what I might have to do

I don't have a problem in the world
Solution oriented, simple island girl
Passionate, compassionate with patience as a science
Endorsing love and unity promoting self reliance
Balancing I emotions tempering i temperament
Maintaining i composure and learning when to vent
But as injustice and oppression grip the masses more and more
The constant pressure makes them numb but instead it makes i sure

That there is tension building inside
I and I'm trusting i spirit to guide i
Even if no else overstands I have got to do what it demands
I eyes and ears might deceive i and friends and family might leave i
But is righteous tension a brew so I
Must prepare for what I might have to do

Misleaders use semantics, to manipulate us
Meaningless promises to keep us in a state of
Catatonic apprehension empty hands up to the sky
The art of misdirection used to disguise the lie
Telling us decisions made are for our good, by those whom we elect
When in actuality they merely reflect
An ulterior agenda to make profit in their term
So the people only matter when those people help them earn
So dem currup' system get burn... hot

That's why there's tension building
Inside i and I'm trusting i spirit to guide i
Even if no else overstands I have got to do what it demands
I eyes and ears might deceive i and friends and family might leave i
But is righteous tension a brew so I
Must prepare for what I might have to do

Imagine the morning you awake to find the soldiers on your street
Armored tanks on every boulevard and police on every beat
Helicopters hovering but a stillness in the air
How will you be feeling? relieved? Or filled with fear?
Then the radio announces that the leader's going to speak
Adrenaline explodes as your attention starts to peak
He says "you may already notice all the plans for your protection"
They've been put in place to neutralize potential insurrection
But have no fear the force is here with tear gas, bombs and guns
So no undesirables can compromise the flow of funds
Tell me where will you be standing what will you plan to do?
When you realize the enemy is you!

Which side of the law are you on?
Are you with the masses or are you the protected one?
What side of the law holds your place?
Do they defend you or can they stick that gun in your face?
Tell me where does your allegiance lie?
Does the struggle entertain you or does it make you cry?
Is it clear where your conscience
Resides? One day you may have to deside

That's why there is tension building inside
But I'm never gonna give Jah up
No matter what
