Dispel The Lie

dispel the lie
about Rastafari
drug religion
a misconception
sent by Babylon
to cause distraction
from identification
with our african roots

dispel the lie
that i
only get high on smoke
tryin to find self
through clouds of social

Jah light
shining bright
no candle tonight
i am the light

dispel the lie
that i
can only see clear
when smoking a spliff
or takin a whiff
from a chalice
in a palace
i an i
see no god in cloud of smoke
a yoke

sent from slavery
to discredit i philosophy
about Jah in man
man is one
no smoke reveal Jah to i
dispel the lie

dispel the lie
that i
cannot think straight
without a pound weight
of collie weed
to feed
i need
to hate
the state
that perpetuate
the lie
that i
is why
youths get high
on drugs

Rastafari livin high
no smoke reveal that to i
dispel the lie

peace and hotep,

a medicine can be a poisen
a poisen can be a medicine.

i hope i and i don't miss the point
the west would have more respect
for rastafari if rasta keeps their
kkkristianity in check.

ganja is the another western distraction
only more neocolonization of land resources.
the west has no right to judge how others
manage their own natural resource.

caring whether or not colonizers disrespect
how a sovereign nation maintains its own
natural resource, be it coca, hemp, poppy, petro or bananas,
is again bowing to the economic racism of western
'white' pseudo-supremacy.

muta baruka and his countrymen should really only be
concerned with getting jahmaicia from under the foot of
the queen of angloland.

more of victims blaming victims.

ganja is a great way to rid oneself of a slaves mind
but ones should be cautious of becoming 'lotus eaters'

living in insane societies forces ones to medicate oneselves
but, by being poor, they seek medicine from the corner
rather than the pharmacy.

if everyone was straight
there would be a bloodbath...... Lips Sealed 2
