Garnett Silk - Cry Of My People

Babylon be still while I blow this trumpet
Babylon be still

We are good enough to build your city
Yet not good enough to be a part of your society
Still that's fine with me, yeah
We are good enough to build your school
Yet no good enough to attend it
No, we can't attend your school
But we can go to your church
I want to know what it is that you ar eup to
I'm still on the search

The cry of my people is upon you
Babylon, you are doom well
The blood of my people is upon you
What you gonna do

The cry of my people is upon you
Babylon, you are doom well
The blood of my people is upon you
What you gonna do
(What you gonna do)

We do all the hard work
But it's you who achieve, yeah
Now you tell me when will I receive
I know that Jah is grieved

The cry of my people is upon you
Babylon, you are doom well
The blood of my people is upon you
What you gonna do

The cry of my people is upon you
Babylon, you are doom well
The blood of my people is upon you
What you gonna do
(What you gonna do)

(..)

We're not good enough to marry your daughters, oh no
Yet we're so precious that you'd rape our mothers
I'm crying
Ligthening, brimstone and fire
For all you heartless vampires, vampires

The cry of my people is upon you
Babylon, you are doom well
The blood of my people is upon you
What you gonna do

The cry of my people is upon you
Babylon, you are doom well
The blood of my people is upon you
What you gonna do
(What you gonna do)

We are good enough to build your city
Yet not good enough to be a part of your society
Still that's fine with me, yeah
We are good enough to build your school
Yet no good enough to attend it
No, we can't attend your school
But we can go to your church
I want to know what it is that you ar eup to
I'm still on the search

The cry of my people is upon you
Babylon, you are doom well
The blood of my people is upon you
What you gonna do

The cry of my people is upon you
Babylon, you are doom well
The blood of my people is upon you
What you gonna do
(What you gonna do)

Oh, I'm crying
Lord, I'm crying
The cry of my people
Ooh, yeah
The cry of my people
