Mavado - The Truth (Ghetto)

God knows
God knows
A so me know dem no love me
Jamie

You see the ghetto weh me come from
You see the place weh me grow
The moment me open me eyes
The people me know

A nuff a dem no really waan see you mek it inna life
A that me know
A nuff a dem try hard fi hold me down
And haffi let me go

Dem penalize me fi the picture dem perpetuated
And tell me from the ghetto me fi separated
But music a me joy, a it me celebrate with
Me never born with gold spoon, a it me elevate with
So why you waan fi keep the youths uneducated
Jah see you build your prison dem incarcerated
Every ghetto have a star weh fi overrated
You mek it big dem seh you gang related
But Jah Jah, knows my heart stays in the ghetto
Even though you know that I'm so far

A nuff a dem no really waan see you mek it inna life
A that me know
And fi all a who a try hard fi hold me down
Better let me go

The streets is like quicksand
You keep on sinking
You keep on going down
And watch all your enemies linking
Dem a say love and dem no show none
Dem rather see you slow down

Inna dem time yah it no matter weh you come from
Cah mek me tell you, me no trust and me no owe none
I've seen so many things
I've seen pauper turn to king
I've seen bird, trying to fly away with broken wings

Inna the ghetto weh me come from
Inna the place weh me grow
The moment me open me eyes
People me know

A nuff a dem no really waan see you mek it inna life
A that me know
A nuff a dem try hard fi hold me down
Let me go

The street is like quicksand
Jah know
Gully Gad, Gully Side
Jah know, Jah know, Jah know
