Forgive us ou trespasses as we forgive
those who trespass against us
Although hem again
we will never, never
never trust

Dem noh know weh dem do, dig out yuh
yei while dem sticking like glue
Fling, skin, grin while dem plotting fah you
True, ah Who?

Forgive then father for they know not
what they do
Forgive them father for they know
not what they do

Beware the False Motieves of others
Be caerful of those who pretend
to be brothers
And you never suppose it's those who are
closest to you, to you
They say all right things to gain
their position
Rhen use kindness as their ammunition
To shoot you down in the name
of ambition, they do

Forgive them Father, for
they know not what they do
Forgive them Father, for
they know not what they do

Why Every Indian anna be the chief?
Feed a man till he's full and he still want
beef
Give me grief, try to tief off
my piece
Why for you
to increase, I
must decrease?
If I treat you kindly, does it mean I
am weak?
You hear me speak
and think I wont take it to the streets
I know enough cats that don't turn
the other cheek
ut I try to keep it civilized like Menelik
And other African tsarz
observing the stars with scars
Get yours in this capitalistic system
So many bought
or caught you can't list them
How you gonna idolize the missing?
To survive is to stay alive
in the face of opposition
Even when they comin' gunnin'
I stand position
L's known the mission since conception
Let's free the people from deception
if you lookin for the answers
You gotta ask the questions
And when I let go, my
voice echoes through the ghetto
Sick of men trying to pull strings like Geppetto
Why black people always
be the ones to settle
March through these streets like Soweto


Like Cain and Abel
Jesus and Judas
Backctabbers do this

Fogive them father,
for they know not what they do
Forgive them Father,
for they know not what they do
It took me
a little time to discover
Wolves in sheep clothes who
pretend to be lovers
Men who lack conscience will even lie
to themselves
A friend once said, and I found to be true
that every day, people lie to
God
too, so what makes you think that
they won't lie to you?

Fogive them Father,
for they know not what they do
Forgive them Ftaher,
for they know not what they do

Gwan like dem love
while dem rip you to
shreds
Trample pon yuh heart
and lef yuh fi dead
Dem a yuh friend
who yuh depen pon from way back when
But if yuh give dem yuh back
den yuh
mus meet yuh end
Dem noh know wey dem do
Dem no now, dem no now, dem don now,
dem don now, den don now wey dem do
