COLONISED

 

Clinarke Dill & Juliet L  Edwards

© 2005

 

Intro :

 

Get up and rise

Get up and rise

 

Chorus:

Do you believe in the conspiracy?

That locks away some of our history

Robbing us of our opportunity

Despair in the community

 

 

Bridge:

You wake up angrier than before

Can bear the strain no more

Don’t blame your self, its historical

Third world debt is illogical!

 

 

Why should we flee a paradise?

Why can’t we make our own life?

Just get up and rise!

Don’t be demoralised!

 

Chorus:

Do you believe in the conspiracy?

That locks away some of our history

Robbing us of our opportunity

Despair in the community

 

If you want designer labels

And you rather thief than buy

Then check your situation

Your mind’s still colonised

 

If your cant be bothered to labour

And you‘re jealous of your neighbour

Seek and you will find

Your mind is held behind

 

Chorus:

Do you believe in the conspiracy?

That locks away some of our history

Robbing us of our opportunity

Despair in the community

 

 

You’d rather thief,

You’d rather thief than buy

You’d rather thief,

You’d rather thief than buy

What of our history

Oh we cry,

 

 

Chorus:

Do you believe in the conspiracy?

That locks away some of our history

Robbing us of our opportunity

Despair in the community

Beautiful Island

Written by: Clinarke Dill & Juliet L Edwards

©2004

I left a beautiful island
To come and seek you out
Wanna know, if you need me
And that’s without a doubt

My City Girl
You got me in bind
I need to give you some feedback (oh well)
I made up my mind

I’ve left a fruitful land
To pursue my happiness
My heart is in your in your hands
Can’t stop this craziness

Remember how we sat and talked
Under the tree on the sands
Didn’t know this could happen to me
My heart was in the land

How can I survive the city
All pollution and distress
I’m feeling something lasting
My heart, you will possess

So now you’ve captured me
And drawn me into your den
Have all my loving
I will be with you till when

Oh my beautiful Island,
My warm and fruitful land (warm and fruitful land)
Farewell for now, I will return
To you from foreign land (yeh)

Repeat.

Ends

 

 
 
Life in the Ghetto

Written by: Clinarke Dill  & Juliet Edwards

© 2005

(Oh lord, yes oh lord,
Oh lord, yes oh lord,
Oh lord, yes oh lord,
Oh lord, yes oh lord,

I’m standing on the corner
Trying to sell a ware,
Look man don’t test me
See if I care,
Hey brother, give me what u got
Few pounds? Is that a lot?

Chorus:
Life in the ghetto,
It’s controlling my mind
I m free, I’m free yeah
But this freedom is just so unkind.

Life in the ghetto,
It’s controlling my mind
I m free, I’m free yeah
But this freedom is just so unkind.


I hear my momma calling
‘You know you got to stop!
Just waiting for the day,
They going to make to me drop.

Chorus
Life in the ghetto,
It’s controlling my mind
I’ m free, I’m free yeah
But this freedom is so unkind.

They don’t know ‘bout reality
It’s my business you see
Does any one in this world care bout me,
Momma, I can’t be the man, you want me to be

I’m no textbook son,
I’m schooled in life’s streets
Can’t tell you bout the characters,
You would never wish to meet

Life in the ghetto,
It’s controlling my mind
I’m free, I’m free yeah
But this freedom is so unkind.

Great memories of my childhood days
Neighbours looked out for me
Now can’t sleep at night - agents and enemies
District disputes - status and territories.

Long day dreams, of where I want to be
Wanna travel, to many lands and over seas
Now praying I can deal, with life’s brutality.
Every other day, facing mortality


It doesn’t to be this way
But have to pay the rent
Only thing that can save me,
Must be heaven sent.


Chorus
Life in the ghetto,
It’s controlling my mind
I’ m free, I’m free yeah
But this freedom is so unkind.
