Linton Kwesi Johnson - Dread Beat An' Blood lyrics

brothers and sisters rocking
a dread beat, pulsing fire, burning

chocolate hour and darkness creeping night

black veiled night is weeping
electric lights consoling, night

a small hall soaked in smoke
a house of ganja mist

music blazing, sounding, thumping fire, blood
brothers and sisters rocking, stopping, rocking
music breaking out, bleeding out, thumping out fire, burning

electric hour of the red bulb
staining the brain with a blood flow
and a bad bad thing is brewing

ganja crawling, creeping to the brain
cold lights hurting, breaking, hurting
fire in the head an a dread beat bleeding, heating fire, dread

rocks rolling over hearts leaping wild
rage rising out of the heat of the hurt
and a fist curled in anger reaches a her
then flash of a blade from another to a him
leaps out for a dig of a flesh, of a piece of skin
and blood, bitterness, exploding fire, wailing blood, and bleeding
