"YOUTH IS / TRUTH IS”

First they say-- the Youth dem use-less...use-less...use-less...use-less
come a-gain..
now they say-- the youth dem ruth-less...ruth-less...ruth-less...ruth-less...
come a-gain...
no-body wanna say what the Truth is...Truth is...Truth is..
come a-gain..
an eye for an eye / but the Youth dem tooth-less...tooth-less...tooth-less...
caint afford to lose dem...lose dem...

Fiyah in the belly / fire in the street /
hungry children callin / we just wanna eat /
“every big and small need / got an ego ta feed “...
across the nation / “ghetto-i-zation” /
new gen-e-ration / no more patience...

First they say the Youth dem use-less...use-less...use-less...use-less
come a-gain..
now they say the youth dem ruth-less...ruth-less...ruth-less...ruth-less...
come a-gain...
no-body wanna say what the Truth is...Truth is...Truth is..
come a-gain..
an eye for an eye / but the Youth dem tooth-less...tooth-less...tooth-less...
cain’t afford to lose dem...lose dem...lose dem..

no jobs , no money / darkness is a nuisance /
police-man jammin / in a brand new cruiser /
lookin for the Youth / for to give them a bruisin..
if ya lose the Truth / everybody is a loser..loser
if ya lose the Youth / then ya got no fu-ture..

use-less...use-less / now ya sayin ruth-less..ruth-less...
tell me what the Truth is..truth is...
an eye for an eye..but the youth is tooth-less..

everybody wants Peace / but no justice wid the syst-em..
evrybody talks / but no-body list-ens /
if ya don’t want the fire / take the hell from the kitch-ens..
nuff dollars for the poor / if you di-vide up the rich-es...

but ya say...
the Youth dem use-less...use-less...use-less...use-less
come a-gain..
now ya say the youth dem ruth-less...ruth-less...ruth-less...ruth-less...
come a-gain...
no-body wanna say what the Truth is...Truth is...Truth is..
come a-gain..
an eye for an eye / but the Youth dem tooth-less...tooth-less...tooth-less..

young angry man / listen to my plea...
start the Fiyah in-side / take it off the streets..
don’t become them / in your hour of need...
yeah man-- i know the hurt / an i feel your pain /
when you try to give Love / but all you get is hate /
lookin up for rain-bows / an all ya see is rain..
one man’s gain / is another man’s pain /
lookin to the east / and it’s a worldwide thing /
but brother my Brother / there’s a better way..
Revolution of the Heart / the only Fiyah that stays...
even though they say...

the Youth dem use-less...use-less...use-less...use-less
come a-gain..
now they say the youth dem ruth-less...ruth-less...ruth-less...ruth-less...
come a-gain...
no-body wanna say what the Truth is...Truth is...Truth is..
come a-gain..
an eye for an eye / but the Youth dem tooth-less...tooth-less...tooth-less...

Fiyah in the belly / fire on the streets...
burnin up the wants / burnin up the needs...
Fiyah in the Heart / Fiyah in the Soul...
Fiyah in the mind and eevrybody knows...

that the Youth is not...
use-less...use-less...use-less...use-less
come a-gain..
now they say the youth dem ruth-less...ruth-less...ruth-less...ruth-less...
come a-gain...
no-body wanna say what the Truth is...Truth is...Truth is..
come a-gain..
an eye for an eye / but the Youth dem tooth-less...tooth-less...tooth-less...
if we lose the youth / then we got no future...future...
cain’t afford to lose dem...lose dem..lose dem...



cain’t afford to lose dem...CAIN’T AFFORD TO LOSE DEM...
