Damian Marley & Nas - Tribes At War (ft. K'naan)

Tribal war
We nuh want no more a dat
Every man deserve to earn
And every child deserve to learn, now

Tribal war
A nuh dat we a defend
Every man deserve a turn
Like a flame deserve to burn

Tribal war
We nuh want no more a dat
Each and every one deserve to earn
And every child deserve to learn

Tribal war
A nuh dat we a defend
'Cause every man deserve a turn
Like Babylon deserve to burn

Man what happened to us?
Geographically they moved us from Africa
We was once happiness pursuers
Now we back stabbing, combative and abusive
The African and Arab go at, it they most Muslim
Used to be moving in unison, disputes would end
Bounty Hunters and Grape Street get cool again
Some standard housing
Got the young running rampant wilding,
For a phantom he can style in
Mask on his face, grabbing his Luger
Saying, "nobody move or I'll shoot ya"
Man you're expiring
Catch 25 and he does it like a man
He sides with black, White Pride and Mexican
Survive the best he can
Strap a shank to his thigh
Why do we all collide? Why do the young die?
Extortion, murder and burglary, tattoos his chest
Says his "Enemies don't deserve to breath"

Tribal war
We nuh want no more a dat
Everyone deserve to earn
And every child deserve to learn

Tribal war
A nuh dat we a defend
Every man deserve a turn
Like Babylon deserve to burn

I drink poison
Then I vomit diamonds
I gave you Mandela, Black Dalai Lamas
I gave you music, you enthused in my kindness
So how dare you reduce me to Donny Imus
Timeless in case we never been acquainted
Flyness who made it, it gets duplicated
Mindless violence, well let me try to paint it
Here's the 5 steps in hopes to explain it
One! It's me and my Nation against the World
Two! Then me and my Clan against the Nation
Three! Then me and my Fam' against the Clan
Four! Then me and my brother we no hesitation
Uh! Go against the Fam' until they cave in
Five! Now who's left in this deadly equation?
That's right, it's me against my brother
Then we point a Kalashnikov
And kill one another

Tribal war
We nuh want no more a dat
Everyone deserve to earn
And every child deserve to learn

Tribal war
A nuh dat we a defend
Every man deserve a turn
Like Babylon deserve to burn

Man a war Tribal, over colours
Over money, over land, and over oil, and over God
And over idols, and even lovers
Over breakfast, over dinner, over suppers
Over Jungle, over Rema, over Buckers
Over Brooklyn, over Queens, and over Rutgers
Over red and over blue, and over Chuckers
Over red and over blue and undercovers
Tribal trouble, the drive bys double
'Cause the youth dem nah go war
And go fight with knuckle
The two sides scuffle
Vietnam nah go a war with no more Kung Fu Nun chuckle
Missile and shuttle, huh
And the Queen of England and Uncle Sam
Dem a flex dem muscle, the tribal hustle
Blood diamond poodle, survival struggle

Tribal war
We nuh want no more a dat
Everyone deserve to earn
Every child deserve to learn

Tribal war
A nuh dat we a defend
Each and every man deserve a turn
Like a flame deserve to burn

Tribal war
We nuh want no more a dat
Every man deserve to earn
And every child deserve to learn

Tribal war
A nuh dat we a defend
'Cause every man deserve a turn
Like Babylon deserve to burn
