Steel Pulse - Handsworth Revolution

I say: The people of Handsworth
Know that one hand wash the other (so they say)
So, let's join hands my bredren
Make the way for our children (our children, our children)
And their children (their children, their children)
Ensuring that they get life's fair share of, equality..

Doesn't justice stand for all?
Doesn't justice stand for all?
Doesn't justice stand for all mankind?
We find society putting us down
Crowning us, crowning us, crowning us, crowning us
A place of evil, oh, oh
Handsworth means us the black people
Handsworth means us the black people
We're talking now, speaking Jah Jah language!

It's a long, long way we're coming from
To send this message across, across
Its been hidden, forbidden, concealed, unrevealed
Its got to come out In the open that

Babylon is falling!
Babylon is falling!

It was foolish to build it on the sand
Handsworth shall stand, firm - like Jah rock - fighting back
We once beggars are now choosers, no intention to be losers
Striving forward with ambition
And if it takes ammunition
We rebel in Handsworth revolution

(..)

Dread town, dread town, dread town
Dread town, dread town, dread town

Dread we are for a cause, deprived of many things
Experienced phoney laws, hatred Babylon brings
We know what you got to offer, we know what's going on
Don't want no favours, 'cause there is still hunger
Innocent convicted, poor wage, hard labour
Only Babylon prospers and humble suffer
They are brothers in south of Africa
One black represent all, all over the world

Can't bear it no longer, blessed with the power
Of Jah Creator, we will get stronger
And we will conquer
And forward ever, and backward never
