Queen Ifrica – Times Like These lyrics

One civilization is not complete without it's art
The highest form of expression of human intelligence
You have have become complacent
Sitting down and allowing the other nations to run away with everything
You have become a bunch of consumers
You are creators
rise up mighty people and accomplish what you will
Without confidence you're twice defeated in the race of life

They took away the voices, that gave the people pride
Now we're plunging into darkness
We all have to play our part, make a bold start
Every disc jock, tell every artist
Media houses, we notice you love support the slackness
How so much alcohol in our parties
While the girls a broke out
And the something she drinked knocked her out
Now she doesn't care where they prop her up

It's times like these
I'm missing our heroes
Times like these i really wish they where around
Shouldn't have to be like this
Marcus Garvey
We know that you tried your best, but we'll to the rest

They bred up shotaz them, now we have a lot of them
Prsion pack up, now the grave will be packed with dead
The broke the national bird wing
Sell we out clean
Not sure if we own a god dam thing
Jamrock why are we giving in to the trick
that they have been tricking us from the beginning
Parents you need to awake from the slumbering
It's our children's blood that is running

It's times like these
I'm missing our heroes
Times like these i really wish they where around
Shouldn't have to be like this
Bob Marley
We know that you never died in vain
We're gonna rise agai, .hey

People use the fist hold the bell
Beat promise until it swells
Nobody will hear if you don't yell
Listen what they tell you about the bucket that go well
Black woman put on you baggie
That something should not sell
That's how we know society's cruel
Ask who placed the crab into barrel
PM, opposition stop with the quarrel
Unite, come together, teach the people how fi chill

It's times like these
I'm missing our heroes
Times like these i really wish they where around
Shouldn't have to be like this
Oh Miss Lou we need you
It's the first I've heard of this
Hundred and counting on the murder list

They took away the voices, that gave the people pride
Now we're plunging into darkness
We all have to play our part, make a bold start
Every disc jock, tell every artist
Media houses, we notice you love support the slackness
How so much alcohol in our parties
While the girls a broke out
And the something she drinked knocked her out
Now she doesn't care where they prop her up

It's times like these
I'm missing our heroes
Times like these i really wish they where around
We need you, we need you, we need you
Sam Sharpe
We need you, we need you, we need you
Nanny, yeah
