Warning Shots

In light of all the amazing, mind-blowing, inspiring peoples revolutions in the Middle East, this seemed appropriate – Thievery Corporation’s “Warning Shots”

They try their best just to smash up the resistance,
Warning shots and sirens from a distance,
Riot gear and barricade for an instance,
And the words from mi mouth, mi nuh response.

Hollywood sending signals of destruction,
Stereotype the ghetto youths as the bad man,
Overcome the rough times and we grow strong,
Step up in a life, now them want to shake we hand.

We are eternal, made of the creator,
Won’t fall to the soul-less devastators,
Divide and conquer, and try to separate us,
Up to this day, them still try fi rape us.
