LYRICS (by Vaughn Andre Benjamin, BMI)

Itektion in this time
Itektion everytime
Upheaval is turning over in this time
Everyday you get up a morning and get a new surprise
A different political terrain, right before your eyes
Taking shape, in the time
Just keep good relations
Mongst I & I more time
Mout Zion I more time
A Mount Zion I more time
Mongst I & I more time

Their pride is wounded
A correspondent had them responding
Didn’t know the tape was still running
The sinister tone the emails carried
After requested expert for analysis
And a after they tested
Protestation a remove things in a palaces
Subterranean a deeper than a secret
Electronic betrayal the court receipt is

Desperation proportion of a body politic
The internet what fed them perspective
chaotic need fe know them need a alternative
Before you all go break down and tear down everything
Uno ave fe ave some kind a plan of how to proceed in
Them ave a ripple effect distabalizing everything

All economies all nations will be affected
Every similar situation now is panicking
Wondering if violent repression will be needed
All now is weda if is to vacate the premises
The thresh hold break between passivity and resist
Them send the blood hounds when them smell secret accounts
And then the masses right now set out fe work it out
The after math stability was hope alone
Pundits called it mob rule and throwing stones
That the play by play is still in play let that be known
No nation can be arrogant and go look down dem nose
