I'm Buju Banton with the Preacher's Son

Who gave the orders
For them to go? Alright
Who gave the orders?
Martin was shut down, alright
Who gave the orders
To drop the bomb? We wanna know
Who gave the orders?
No refugees across the borders, hey

Questions asked with no response
(Who's gonna answer?)
Where did all these guns come from?
(Who's gonna answer?)
Feeding lies to our daughters and sons
(But they will have to have to answer)
Then what you gonna do when the Rastaman comes?
(Where you gonna run for cover?)

Lookin' through the window of my irie eyes
On the city filled with lies
Observin' the people workin' so hard
Doin' whatever it takes to get by
Then I look at myself and realize
That I was put here for a reason
Lord knows I've done my best and I've tried

We gon' keep tryin'
Who gave the orders
For them to go? Lord, no
Who gave the orders?
Martin was gunned down, oh
Who gave the orders
To drop the bomb? My God
Who gave the orders?
No refugees across the borders, ooo

Questions asked with no response
(Who's gonna answer?)
Where did all these guns come from? Tell all
(Who's gonna answer?)
Feeding lies to our daughters and sons
(They will have to have to answer)
Well, what you gonna do when the Rastaman comes?
(Where you gonna run for cover?)

Well, whatcha gonna do? Whatcha gonna do? What are you gonna do?
Incarcerate a million and only free few
What was done to others it shall be done to you
Open up your eyes and you will see the full view
Work all day and you can't get a raise in pay
Civil liberties been taken away
I wonder what the voice of the people have to say
Stand up and defend your rights today

Who gave the orders
For them to go? Oh
Who gave the orders?
Martin was gunned down, oh
Who gave the orders
To drop the bomb? Alright
Who gave the orders?
No refugees across the borders, well

Questions asked with no response
(Who's gonna answer?)
Where did all these guns come from?
(Who's gonna answer?)
Telling lies to our daughters and sons
(They will have to have to answer)
Then what they gonna do when the righteous man comes?
(Where you gonna run for cover?)
