i saw a...
Dread Man Walkin...talkin to HIMself..
Dread Man Walkin...from dat pri-son cell..
Dread Man Walkin...dem seh a cap-i-tol of-fense...
Dread Man Walkin...put at de mercy of a public de-fense...
Dread Man Walkin...as de judge says 'money well spent'..
Dread Man walkin...still sayin 'i'm an in-no-cent man'...
Dread Man Walkin...an no-body gave a damn...
Dread Man Walkin...headin for the Mother-land..

an as they call for peace / from behind hearts cold as ice /
another Brother takes de walk / pockets just a little too light /
an justice is a tra-ves-ty / before my very Soul /
visions of His Maj-es-ty / as a Dread Man walks a-lone...

late one night, they came for him /
de guns were all in place /
he kissed an angel sleepin /
then he met dem face to face /
'you have the right to have no rights' /
they told him as they moved /
'what is de charge he cried aloud' /
as he tasted baby-lon's boots /

Dread Man Walkin...talkin to HIM self...
Dread Man Walkin...from dat pri-son cell,
Dread Man Walkin...dem seh a cap-i-tol of-fense /
Dread Man Walkin...put at de mercy of a public de-fense...

another man he never harmed /
in dis thing called Life /
but de one who said he saw him there /
said ,' i know their kind' /
and de ex-pert said,  'wid dat d.n.a. /
can't ex-clude you from the scene /
an all you people kinda look a-like /
if you know just what i mean'....

now he's a Dread Man Walkin..yea--ah..
an justice is a tra-ves-ty / before my very Soul /
visions of His Ma-jes-ty / as a Dread Man walks a-lone...

jury find him guilty /
of a thing he's never done /
an Mother Af-ri-ca cries one more tear /
for another ransomed Son /
an a Young Man loses his Life /
as de judge takes a 'bite out of crime' /
and dis one never makes de papers /
but it STILL happens so many times...

now he's a ...

Dread Man Walkin...from dat pri-son cell /
Dread Man Walkin...dem seh a cap-i-tol of-fense /
Dread Man Walkin...put at de mercy of a public de-fense /
Dread Man Walkin...as de judge says money well spent /
Dread Man Walkin...still knowin he's an in-no-cent man /
Dread Man Walkin...an no one to lend a hand...

>>>jailhouses stacked / wid faces Black / baby-lon system / still out ta whack /  minority on de out-side / majority goin in / what's de sin / dat until de color of de skin /  when man when / decrease de crime / one more time / public de-fender / if ya can't afford de real / check dis deal / it's a steal / no bill / one last meal / an how would it feel / to be dat....

Dread Man Walkin...
at de mercy of a public de-fense...
Dread Man Walkin...

Dread Man Walkin...
An no-body to give a damn...nobody to lend a hand..

an justice remains a travesty / before my very Soul...
visions of His Majesty  / as a Brother walks a-lone...
Dread Man Walkin...yea--ah...
