Steel Pulse - No Justice, No Peace

The law is back to front yeah!
Up side down yeah ah!
What do we want justice
what do we need justice stiddly bop

No justice no peace
Retaliation won't cease
No justice no peace
Retaliation won't cease

For the whole world was a witness
We saw it on t.v.
Four officers they got acquitted
For beating of Rodney King
As my friend Macka B would say
It wasn't right in any kind of way
That Mike Tyson got six long years
For a rape that was not proven
Take the case of Kennedy
Pardoned and got away scott free
O black people why don't you see
Their democracy has spoken

Give me a riot me can't keep quiet
Mek we loot set the place pon fire
Too much abuse sey me sick and me tired
Hang the jury dem a blasted liar

A blackman's incarceration
'Cause of white supremacy
Let's break down the walls of oppression
Their lies and hypocrisy woe
Don't forget old Howard Beach
Hatred practised what it preached
Michael Griffiths lay dead on the streets
By a mob of white extremists
Yusef Hawkins was gunned down
In a little red neck part of town
We won't take that sitting down
'Cause that's a sign of weakness

Woe na an woe na na woe na na
Not funny
I'm in a fury
Kangaroo court and the judge a monkey
I smell a rat and it skunky funky
If you a sly fox

The law is back to the front yeah
Upside down
Inside out in Babylon
Chant dem chant dem yeah chant dem
It no funny I'm in a fury
It's my duty string to up the jury
Not satisfied with your tricks and lies
Not satisfied with the system
No justice no justice
No justice no peace
