Damian Marley & Nas - Dispear

[Chorus: Damian Marley]
This spear, huh
Shaka Zulu, Bobo Shanti, Nyabinghi
Man a Mau Mau Warrior
This spear, eh
Fear and desperation, no depression can't tarry you
Despair, hey
Ayatollah, Idi Amin, Mennelek
Yo, man a Masai Warrior
This spear, eh
Fear and desperation, no depression can't tarry you
Like Burning Spear and such and such before me
Who all fought for the cause and
This spear, eh, huh
Enforcing all the laws, and

[Verse 1: Nas]
The master of the masses
One has power, the other one lacks it
Guns are power, controlled by assets
Owned by financial forecasters
Who are the masters? They are the gangsters
They are the bankers, the ones who tax us
The masses, they are us
The sheep, the people, divided in classes
I go off like a Shi'ite bomb and all y'all see I'm on my
War paint on my face, shit, my nine mm on my waist, shit
I'm a problem, shoot up your place, shit
Let a few go then I get low, blazing haze again
The masters, The Wall Street War Chiefs, the elitists groups
The masses, they pray to Jesus, saying He will see us through
The masters are the aristocratic
The masses ask if the Most High is on His way here
I'm trying to stay clear, my mind is my modern day spear

[Chorus: Damian Marley]
Hey, I say, this spear, huh
Shaka Zulu, Bobo Shanti, Man a Gideon
Man a Mau Mau Warrior
Despair, eh
Fear and desperation, no depression can't tarry you
Despair, hey
Through the hands of time and cruel men
It has slew more than a billion
Despair, eh
It keep on suppressing the humble man's opinion

[Verse 2: Nas]
This led into Swiss cheese when the fith squeeze
Misled, the media misleads
Scares you to the point where you miss sleep
With that said
This lead with this Ruger and that shooter
Sub-machine gun ratta-tat through you
Copper tops, hollow points will do ya something bad
Our future is misled, three strikes
There's no school when a teacher strikes
This economy, this monopoly
Get no job, just own your property
Now it's back to what comes natural
Must survive any how you have to
Despair, desperation
But I have no fear when I hold this spear

[Bridge: Damian Marley]
Make some bwoy know me nah smile
Cah this spear nah beg friends
Man a run racket, man a run scheme
Man a run race, man a run down Benz
Can't trust she nor he nor we nor eye in a contact lens
Man a run from police and a run down wealth
And dollars and nah make sense

[Verse 3: Damian Marley]
So, rise up to my defence
Hollow pointed it is my preference
Should have been deterred, don't know what you heard
Get referred by the wrong reference
When this spear start dispense
It a fly and a tear through fence
Dismember your members and all of your limbs
Body bust inna nuff segments
Well, man a run drugs, man a run risk
Man all a run out a time and ends
Man a run up and down and a run fi dem life
And a run down this month rent
Nothing nah gwaan a yard and food deh a road
Then man haffi go touch pavement
Despair was a tool that was used to enslave man and make man servant
Escape from despair and desperation becomes more urgent
Mankind needs to cleanse and wash out dem soul with spiritual detergent
A distant army, a distant relative controlling the circumference
And any man move with no permission
They're feeling the circumstance of..

[Chorus: Damian Marley]
This spear, hey
Shaka Zulu, Bobo Shanti, man a, eh
Man a Mau Mau Warrior
Despair, eh
Fear of your recession and depression can't tarry you
This spear, hey
Inner city youth dem rise it up disguised as AK-47
This spear, eh
And any time them clap it up the whole city level
This spear
Like Burning Spear and such and such before I
Who all fought for the cause and this spear, eh
They can't ignore me, no

[Outro: Dennis Brown]
What do you think of Africa?
Africa, Africa
Ha ha ha, Africa
Just, just the mention of it
Just the mention of it, man
It's like you call me name, man
Well you know Africa is motherland
And Africa is were we rightfully belong
And that's were I want to be
