Protoje - Kingston Be Wise

[Intro]
Hey
Hey
Watch yah, Dread
Hey, hey

[Chorus]
Kingston, be wise
Kingston, free up your mind
Kingston, just be wise
Kingston, free up the I, yeah-eh-eh

[Verse 1]
When the city a go click-clack-blow, you bet
Government fingers and tic-tac-toes in it
And while they working on the X's and O's
I'm living I and I like I'm Mister Kamoze
No surprise when they sending foes to me
Opposite of when plain clothes approaching me
Follow they rules is what they propose to me
Selling they souls for what is owed, you see
Nothing is owed, nothing is promised
Never know the government would a run up inna dem garrison
Without no sorry, without excuse
Soldier-man inna dem lorry, everybody get abused, and
Everybody have dem views now
The media is owned so know where you get your news from
And the blood deh 'pon dem shoes now
When dem walking it trace
Look dem hard in dem face and say

[Chorus]
Kingston, be wise
Kingston, free up your mind
Kingston, just be wise (for me)
Kingston, free up the I, yeah-eh-eh

[Verse 2]
Now all the damage can't quantify
Roy Rayon couldn't sanctify
Say a nuff a dem dem send fi die
So the city a intensify
Say the ghetto dem a gentrify
Well I, nobody no identify
Nuff bodies unidentified and just a lie deh
Then weh the gun deh? Dead 'pon Saturday
Buried Sunday like Solomon Grundy
Like a no Sons of Solomon dem have down deh
Leonard Howell, Pinnacle and dem land deh
Subdivision, dem deal it underhand deh
So learn it cah dem come back with dem plan deh
So tell me how far do you wanna go now, hey
Cah dem will ratta-tatta-tatta when you pow-pow-pow

[Chorus]
Kingston, be wise
Kingston, free up your mind
Kingston, just be wise
Kingston, free up the I, yeah-eh-eh

[Outro]
Hum...
Do you overstand me man
Hum...
Yeah, its live from the capital... city
Hey hey
Be wise
Hum...
Be wise, for me
Kingston, Kingston, Kingston
Be wise
Kingston free up the I
Yeah yeah yeh
