Atomic Society


Stop your fearing and foreign animosity
It’s time to release yourself and become one with reality

Walk, talk, bow like a robot man
this place is a real Babylon,
look pon da TV, and what you see?
fashion, fast food, lies, nothing but commodities,
what dem a teach our youth of today
Wind Rush ancestors look on in dismay,
long time we forget our history
cheap labour, maroon soldiers, and slavery

Hai, dem a bow, hai dem a bow bow
bowing down to self destruction,
Hai, dem a bow, hai dem a bow bow
losing all sense of realisation

Jah Jah come bless light upon us
society is bleeding, everybody is lost,
want to promote democracy, unity and peace
but still dem support war in Africa, Asia, and Middle East,
yes Jah, shine some light upon dem
single mothers stuck in an endless bend,
fireworks, secrecy, and shadow delegates
Jah bless creativity and curiosity, for it’s our escape,

Hai, dem a bow, hai dem a bow bow
bowing down to self destruction,
Hai, dem a bow, hai dem a bow bow
losing all sense of realisation

Metal, brick and church flicker past me
Nubian Pharaohs lost in history,
gwan fi climb the Alps and you will see
enough space under unkai for equality,
step out of your narrow box with open arms
stop being blinded by dutty Government charms,

Hai, dem a bow, hai dem a bow bow
bowing down to self destruction,
Hai, dem a bow, hai dem a bow bow
losing all sense of realisation

Free the children, clear their minds
we have to rescue them from Babylon’s prison,
capitalism and consumerism
the yute dem enslaved in Parliament’s vision

All under heaven, we all is one
don’t fear emancipation, don’t run,
within the four seasons of Earth
the concious life is waiting for you

Yes, stop your bow, stop your bow bow
stop bowing down to self destruction,
Yes, stop your bow, stop your bow bow
People, it’s time for resonation

    1. Thanks Susie! It can definitely be made into a rap… I’m not that good at rapping though and would need a good beat… but someday I could do a freestyle on it! 😉
