(Capleton)
King Shango and Rakaa getting hotta
Getting in tacka/ Now the whole place locka

Fya man seh bun dem, bun dem/ Mek wi bun dem,
Un dem/ Killing out di daughters and di son dem,
Dun dem/ Blaze up di fya mek it bun dem/ Bun out dem
Bombs and dem bullets and dem gun dem [Repeat]

(Rakaa)
The fire starts with a spark/ Then a shift up in
The mind/ People scared to be themselves/ Seem happy
To live a lie/ Give thanks for collie weed/ Never ever
Sniff a line/ Conquering Lion/ 225th in line/ If we say
We're "Pro-War"/ Only in the fight for peace/ Man, that
Means no war/ Think the price of life is cheap?/ But
We're saying "No More"/ Righteous recognize the beast
Fireman'll baptize/ Burn 'em the light and heat/ Forward
To the power in a phrase like/ "Acts Of God"/ Prophet
Said he saw the flood waters rise/ And the flow was hard
I was really shocked to see/ The truth was exposed as hard
While the media was focused/ On the words by Kanye/ What
Was it I just heard the President's Mom say?/ People here
Are frustrated/ Still got a long way/ Fed up but remember
Self Destruction is the wrong way

(Rakaa and Capleton)
Too much ratat.../ Keep it pon lock if you're gonna use one
(Remember that)/ Ratat.../ Strictly self defense or for
Revolution/ (Remember that)

[Chorus](Capleton)
They think I'm crazy/ But di tables have to turn/ They
Think I'm crazy/ But di fya have to burn/ They think
I'm crazy/ But di children have to learn/ They think
I'm crazy/ Wow, wow, oh

(Capleton)
Rakaa tell dem seh fi bun dem, bun dem, bun dem, bun dem,
Bun dem, bun dem/ If dem kill di daughters and di son dem,
Bun dem/ Bun dem out dem bullet and and dem bomb and dem
Gun dem/ Wah mi seh fi bun dem, bun dem, bun dem, bun dem,
Bun dem, bun dem/ Serious mi serious ain't makin' no fun
Then/ Weh mi seh fi bun dem, bun dem, bun dem, bun dem,
Bun dem, bun dem/ Listen to di words weh a come off a mi
Tongue/ Rakaa tell mi seh

(Rakaa)
It's Dilated with the Prophet/ Capleton the Fireman
Visions of the future's clear/ Reign Of Fire in his hand
Crown Prince Rakaa/ Preacher's son with a higher plan
Coconut and carrot chalice/ Looking for the kaya man
Babylon is vexed with us/ They should read Exodus/ Moses
And the burning bush/ Incense in Leviticus/ Lamb's Bread
Sacrament/ Check out 1st Corinthians/ Shipped of to
America/ All through the Caribbean/ No it's not an
Accident/ Gangbangin and the dope/ Guns and crack are
Lynching youth/ Swinging from a hangman's rope/ Addicts
Wanna shoot up/ Pop pills/ Wanna drink and toke
Automatics spit hot/ You can still se the smoke

(Rakaa and Capleton)
Too much ratat.../ Keep it pon lock if you're gonna use one
(Remember that)/ Ratat.../ Strictly self defense or for
Revolution/ (Remember that)

(Capleton)
Well bingyman wi haffi mek a decision/ Caan mek dem
Distract wi from Jah Jah mission/ Dem a worry bout mi sight
And ask bout mi vision/ Dem want to know weh certain things
It derive from/ From di injustice and di manipultation
Death without dignity and exploitation/ So mi go, go ask di
Wicked man/ Weh dem dem pan/ Why dem haffi build so much
Evilous weapon/ So mi go, go ask di wicked man/ Why dem
Haffi build so much evilous weapon
