Systems were made to rule
Systems were made to divide and abuse you
Systems were made to rule

Working for the system
You can't earn no living and unemployment
A sky scrapers keep rising
What's the use you wait no more
Ohh no no...

Rastafari the law
Don't you know?
Systems were made to rule
Systems were made to divide and abuse you
Systems were made to rule

Don't waste your time or your energy
Working for babylon over night crimes
You pay your penalty
To die for exaltation

But now they are running out of luck
It's a pleasant on her gloves

Don't you know?
Systems were made to rule
Systems were made to divide and abuse you
Systems were made to rule

Say they war every single day
They build nuclear weapons
[Mass destruction]

Ohh no no... for what we don't know?
It's not a world conflict
For what we don't know
It's not a world conflict

Systems were made to rule
Systems were made to divide and abuse you
Systems were made to rule
[Oh Systems]

Law law law enforcement
General penitentiaries
What they do
They ride in the people continually

Systems were made to rule
Systems were made to divide and abuse you
Systems were made to rule
Systems were made...

[Systems were made]
To divide and conquer
[Systems were made]
To divide and abuse you
