Church and State Lyrics

by Gentleman

[Chorus]
Devilstation they intensify
Church and state they can't satisfy
While the children still a multiply
I see babymothers cry
While the babyfathers die

Break my backbone while you sit down on your throne
You must living ina twylight zone
It's a good thing I man tuff like a rock stone
Never gonna hear me weap you'll never gonna hear me mone
Creating all the circumstance
Still you're claiming that a you the one who nuh response
When the revolutionary man a take his stand
You Mr. Jacket and tie it nuh make sense you run

[Chorus]

Promises and lies is what a gwaan
These are the things righteous people a scorn
Prophets a ring the alarm
Tell the heads of government fi cool and fi calm
And if you live by what you should
And you doing what you could
There'll be no bad but good, no no
Living out in Hollywood
Buh care about no flesh and blood
You sink ina the mod

[Chorus]

You only govern with your weapon
But dem ya things seh we nuh pon
Man a no stool fu you fi step pon
We age trample duppy and the demon
Nuh join dem gang and me nuh ku-klux dem clan
Listen to the words of a living man
This oppression me don't understand
Are you a creature, beast are you human

[Chorus]

Break my backbone while you sit down on your throne
You must living ina twylight zone
It's a good thing I man tuff like a rock stone
Never gonna hear me weap you'll never gonna hear me mone
Creating all the circumstance
Still you're claiming that a you the one who nuh response
When the revolutionary man a take his stand
You Mr. Jacket and tie it nuh make sense you run

[Chorus]
