Afu-Ra - Why Cry lyrics

Chorus:
Tell my why, why you wanna cry

Gentleman:
Nobody's crying out for justice
and everyone is crying out for peace
mankind overstand please, a hungry man is an angry man
and the war will never cease militous power struggle
make a whole a dem a freeze ya
and you a mister scripe and mister pharisees
can you show some love and put your mind at ease
say dem bow down to them flame like a beast them cant tame
and now you stand alone in a de rain

Afu-Ra:
All over the world, too much is too much
And I done been all over the globe, n yo, you know enough is enough
Many families going to bed without a decent meal in they table
Babies crying with these swollen bellies
And they can't help themselves, they need the world to hear me
It's fucked up, the population's mind shackled up
By some are mesmerized by a fucking pimp cup
With the zillionaire big time ballers
Every where in the world, put five in the bum's cup
And I ain't trynna scape-goat the power structure
Cause the powers structure's, heading for destruction
Matter of fact, yo it was built on destruction
I'm trynna look into the eyes of my brothers
Each one, teach one, we are all brothers
Get ya weight up, the situation ain't going nowhere
I can rhyme it til I'm blue in the face, who in the world cares

Chorus

Gentleman:
It a run red out de
everyday another innocent dead out de
more wickedness the whole a dem spread out de
and the ghetto youth a try and try and them cant find no bread out de
people upset out de
politician nowadays na show regret out de
cuz things dem a do we should reject out de
but instead of that
nobody never fling a stone a flatten ghetto de

Afu-Ra:
We praise a spiritual vibe, to bring a state of unity
Mash the playa haters out in the community
And global genocide's, Babylon's comodity
While selficiousness, plagues the mind of humanity
With media and propaganda, causing insanity
And self indulgence tastin sweeter than candy
We got women, plus the men hypnotized by vanity
Understand, one race, one family

Gentleman:
You wanna be tender
but you got to be tough
becuz the food that you eat
look like it not enough
and you want to be real
but you got to be rough
and the whole time ya pray for a blessing from above boom
mutton n booze mashin handcuff
working for de system the goods you a crush
and better you go cool and not fight the rush
them step on your toe and not even say hush

Chorus

Gentleman:
Nobody's crying out for justice
and everyone is crying out for peace
mankind overstand please, a hungry man is a angry man
so the war will never cease militous power struggle
make a whole a dem a freeze ya
and you a mister scripe and mister Pharisees
can you show some love and put your mind at ease
say them a bow down to them flame like a beast them cant tame
and now you stand alone in a de rain
