Vybz Kartel - Ghetto Youths Rise

You no show the ghetto youth no love
An' a wonder why dem shed the blood

Seems like dem life has been wasted
Is only blood, sweat and tears they have tasted
And every day, the youths dem face death
Inna the garrison dem bo yah, me no see no smiling face yet
The youths dem frustrated
So dem a show less love and more hatred
So now-a-days, the gift of life no sacred
A peer mislead juvenile me see a run the place red

Ghetto youths rise
And realize keep your eyes 'pon the prize
Doh believe none a dem lies
Ghetto youths rise
And realize when a ghetto youth dies
A tear drops (full up me eyes)
Ghetto youths rise
And realize keep your eyes 'pon the prize
Doh believe none a dem lies
Ghetto youths rise
And realize when a ghetto youth dies
A tear drops

The garrison fi link up like coach dem 'pon train
No fire no more gun fi dem political campaign
Stop, fight the turf war fi corners and lane
And tek heed to life teachings and what it contain
Then fi vanity weh smaller than a sand grain
Man a cut the baby throat, shot out the old woman brain
Me nah sell out, no matter how the journey hot
A when five a we a share, one dumpling inna the pot
Me stand firm

Ghetto youths rise
And realize keep your eyes 'pon the prize
Doh believe none a dem lies
Ghetto youths rise
And realize when a ghetto youth dies
A tear drops (full up me eyes)
Ghetto youths rise
And realize keep your eyes 'pon the prize
Doh believe none a dem lies
Ghetto youths rise
And realize when a ghetto youth dies
A tear drops (full up me eyes)

No love nah spread, me see peer bloodshed
And me know that's not the way in which the youth was bread
"Me no tek no talk" that's what Omar said
Yesterday me receive a call seh Omar dead
Him mother bawl, she bawl, she bawl, she hol' her head
Hug up the body, her blouse become the colour red
Me nah go tek the breath weh God give on to men
Me nah go mek because a me him pickney dem no see him again
Me nah deweet

Ghetto youths rise
And realize keep your eyes 'pon the prize
Doh believe none a dem lies
Ghetto youths rise
And realize when a ghetto youth dies
A tear drops (full up me eyes)
Ghetto youths rise
And realize keep your eyes 'pon the prize
Doh believe none a dem lies
Ghetto youths rise
And realize when a ghetto youth dies
A tear drops

The garrison fi link up like coach dem 'pon train
No fire no more gun fi dem political campaign
Stop, fight the turf war fi corners and lane
And tek heed to life teachings and what it contain
Then fi vanity weh smaller than a sand grain
Man a cut the baby throat, shot out the old woman brain
Me nah sell out, no matter how the journey hot
A when five a we a share, one dumpling inna the pot
Me stand firm

Ghetto youths rise
And realize keep your eyes 'pon the prize
Doh believe none a dem lies
Ghetto youths rise
And realize when a ghetto youth dies
A tear drops (full up me eyes)
Ghetto youths rise
And realize keep your eyes 'pon the prize
Doh believe none a dem lies
Ghetto youths rise
And realize when a ghetto youth dies
A tear drops
