Damian Marley "Brothers Keeper" Liedtext

Bunny Wailer
From the slaveship to the chain
From the task masters whip to my brain
Kidnapped, enslaved, raped and killed by the lynch clan
Again and again
Is it the origin of the skin or the face of a race
Why you don't care about me?

Ziggy Marley
Now, I know you don't care about me
I`m just a nigger walking down your street
The brother did nothing wrong
but now his life is gone
So, I know you don't care about me
Code of silence you say
Yet your action speaks so loud and clear
Diallo`s killers going free paid by society
Now I know you don't care about me

Damian "Junior Gong" Marley
Hey - we should be burning and looting, believe me, start exchange 41 fe 90
Our ancestors wey build this country and all sticks and whips and kicks and punches meanwhile your living like some bird in bunches
Tell me where the justice much less the dances?
Mi world must know that man still in darkness

Yami Bolo
Lord! Rapings, torture, kill and maim. Their injustice remains the same
killing the people in the Queens name
No one will gets the blame, and my people keep going down the drain
All these crimes we've come to read, they'll be written in black history
Crimes of injustice and inhumanity, perpetuated by society, and my people
are living in poverty

Bunny Wailer
My struggle for survival is to be accepted and treated as a member of the human family, who's practice should reveal the fundamental right and duty to be humane in all judgement and action to all humanity
So, why don't you care about me?

Ziggy Marley
Say, I know you don't care about me
I`m just a nigger walking down your street
The brother did nothing wrong, but now his life is gone
and I know you don't care about me
Code of silence you say
but your action is so loud and clear
Are Diallo's killers going free? Paid by society
And I know you don't care about me

Buju Banton
Amadou Diallo, they killed him for nuttin'
No crime him did not do!
And just like him there were others who suffered for what they didn't do
We're living in a system, we are the victim and that is so true
Amadou Diallo - Reggae music knows your name
Amadou Diallo - Reggae music knows your name

Ziggy / Refrain/Morgan Heritage
Yo, Ziggy, check this out!
It's kinda strange how the same things been happening
over and over again, over and over again
And they say their constitution's for the benefit of all
It's all a lie again, it's all a lie again
Tell me when will this injustice change
Tell me when will we stop feeling pain
Just the way we survive in their eyes it's a crime
You're to blame for all that's bleeding this way
Yes, we know you don't care about we
Yes, we know you don't care about we

Malcolm X: "We want to talk right down to earth in a language that everybody here can easily understand. We all agree tonight - all of the speakers have agreed - that America has a very serious problem! Not only does America have a very serious problem / But our people have a very serious problem."
