The Beginning Of Sorrows (acoustic version of "Pressure")
. . .



SET IT OFF

We in a heavy weight style and we kick it,
Know we enter the zone we come for mash it,
And go home and we make the room tear down,
Das what the dred come fer do, ooh ooh.

I know the people understand,
When they see the dredder with the mike in ah me hand, hand, hand,
We make the vibe just cool,
When you see we rocking heavy weight we got the fuel, fuel, fuel.
Yer you know we tear it up coming with the action
Yer you know we re on top, top, top,
Yer you know we re like a bomb,
Ready to go off we got the ammunition, shun, shun.

Yer you know that it s on,
DJ rocks the place from dust till dawn and, ah,
Can you know that it s on?
We tears it up from dusk till dawn, ah!


Kill them with the rhythm
Coz we come to set it off, shout it out!
Jah know I say we come to set it off, set it off,
Jah know I say we come to set it off, shout it out!
You know that we come to set it off, set it off,
You know that we come to set it off, shout it out!
You know I say we come to set it off, and ah!


Know we ve stated what we want in ah the place
Now its up to you to move your body to the bass, bass, bass!
We re hitting hard and coming strong
As you re jumping around you coulder never done no wrong, wrong, wrong!
Set up the sound and make it rock
Coming with the power musically can t stop, stop, stop!
We no want no negative in, ah, the place
Step it up a gear we got the bass you can taste
Come follow me one and two an


You know the people them have rock and everything is just fine,
We no need no violence we no need no crime,
And if you deal with that then dial 999,
Babylon will beat you up and put you back in to line.
Rude boy its you!
I am man talking to
Yer man!


Set it off Ginger Ford him in the A1 Class!

Take your anger out on me
Slap me round no one can see
We're the perfect family
Make up hides the scars daily
Living under fear you
Heavy hands make my skin blue
Smile don't let the neighbours see
We're the perfect family
Kiss and make up
Kiss and make up
Kiss and make up
Kiss and make up
In this house the fights come more
Screaming has made my throat sore
When it's all smashed and you too
That's when the demons scream through you
If you're sick of me like i'm sick of you
Then just pack your stuff you know just what to do
Dem der kind of ting I cannot take no more
And the way you gworn leaves me on the floor
Chorus
(middle 8)
Take your anger out on me
Slap me round no one can see
We're the perfect family
Make up hides the scars daily
Sick of you like you're sick of me
Then just pack your shit and then let it be
You're abuse I can't take no more
And the way you gworn leaves me on the floor
Kiss and make up
Kiss and make up
Chorus
(screaming outro)
End

. . .



Man we're living in a dangerous time
Every nation to the father seeks a sign
You're either righteous or the heathen infidel
It's only judgment morning every tongue will tell

Rumours rumours everywhere
Times like this when people care
We got to stand up deal with this fight
We cannot stop till this world is right

To the sky for your deliverance draws near
Bringing the force of love to make hate disappear

Yer, I know we'll be together
yes I know we love each other
Yer, I know we'll be together
yes I know we love each other

Hold your corner strength and faith
Teach the youth to stand up in their face
Put your armour on each day
Watch your back and what you say yea

Stuck in the middle of the armageddeon
So much fear and contention
Now it's time to shine your light
Hope and pray that we can unite

To the sky for your deliverance draws near
Bring the force of love to make hate disappear

Yer, I know we'll be together
yes I know we love each other
Yer, I know we'll be together
yes I know we love each other

To the sky for your deliverance draws near
Bringing the force of love to make hate disappear

Yer, I know we'll be together
yes I know we love each other
Yer, I know we'll be together
yes I know we love each other
Yer, I know we'll be together
(Yer, I know we'll be together)
Yer, I know we'll be together
(Yer, I know we'll be together)
Yer, I know we'll be together
(Yer, I know we'll be together)
Yer, I know we'll be together
(Yer, I know we'll be together)

Green with envy she cries herself to sleep
She's paid the price for living cheap
The more you try to get out of this hole
The more you seem to bury yourself in coal
I get sicker I get sicker sicker I get sicker
The alternation in my brain it don't work right
I seem to listen to the voice that doesn't tell me fight
I kneel down by my bed I call to jah-ov-yah
Son of man he says shine bright you star
I get sicker I get sicker sicker I get sicker
An if I should start falling
Its you that I'll be calling
Sicker I get sicker sicker I get sicker

. . .



Easy selector cos I know that you re ruff,
And the way you play your tunes I know you re musically tough, and ah,
I catch your vibe and the way you carry on,
And you feel say you wicked as you rock the session, and ah.

Pull it back now one time dreadlocks,
Become me no you want the original don don don
Play the B-side this instrumental,
Beg you a piece of the version

Selector, pull the tune again me brethren,
Selector, pull it back again,
Selector, we don t come again now man,
Selector, play the tune again.

Selector, Selector,
You got to pull it up, got to pull it up,
Selector, Selector,
I like to pick it up, you gotta put it up ... BOOM!

Move to the decks and try to take up the mike,
And show the people in the place you ve got the skills to excite,
You get blanked like your not even there,
Even though in all them face you just constantly stare, and ah.

Jack it again I wanna ride the rhythm,
I wanna rock the rhythm,
Now pull it up, up, up, up, up, up, up, up.
Murder the tune now with a subsonic boom,
Das how we rock out the room,
Now pull it up, up, up, up, up, up, up,up.


Pull it up one time, Selector
BOOM!!!

Time for talking to, work it all out
Can not the pressure nuff addy youth dem ah shot
Children suffering screams are in vain
An they're dealing with the tormenting again and again
Time for stalling lets work it all out
Some will use the tongue to spit their venom about
Sticks and stones hurt and words they can kill
Harassment and oppression, why can't people just chill
The rude boys are coming so get out of here
Find a place to hide because nuff youth dem ah fear
Stand in ah dem way you know you will disappear
The rude boys are coming and I, I just don't fear
We don't fear rude boy get out of here
With your bully boy tactics you disappear
Don't fear rude gal get out of here
With your bad gal business, disappear
In the play yard the battle is on
And who is going to tell them
That their vibes dem is wrong
Teachers shouting lets sort this out
But when she turns her back
They smack you straight in the mouth
Gunner get you with intimidation
Stand up and be counted cause a counteraction
Turn the tables to know how it feels
You would want them to stop if it was them on your heels
The rude boys are coming so get out of here
Find a place to hide because nuff youth dem ah fear
Stand in ah dem way you know you will disappear
The rude boys are coming and I,
I just don't fear
We don't fear rude boy get out of here
With your bully boy tactics you disappear
Don't fear rude gal get out of here
With your bad gal business, disappear

All I want to do is make the people rock
But them I heard dem der words
I never trusted you lot
And why don't you go back to Africa
From I heard that sound these a vibe non-stop, right?
Round 1, i'll tie you up in knots
You caught me with a right, is that all you got?
Let's make our way to the parking lot
Coz I know one of us have got to drop
Winners losers mind confuser
Step in the ring and you know get bruises
Winners losers mind confuser
Jump inna de ring and you know you get bruises
Winners losers mind confuser
People should know better
It's not hard or it's not clever
Dem ah walk in a drunkard crew
And dem are look violence
Through intoxication
They want to start a confrontation
But they ain't got the sense or co-ordination
Who you looking at? For pray clowns be storking
All liquored up, pay no mind keep walking
Wrong move there in your face for a fight
To explode with a right upper cut dynamite
He's had enuff he ain't getting up
He's had enuff he ain't getting up
He's had enuff he ain't getting up
He's had enuff he ain't getting up
Winners losers mind confuser
Jump in the ring and you know get bruises
Winners losers mind confuser
Jump inna de ring and you know you get bruises
Winners losers mind confuser
He's had enuff he ain't getting up
He's had enuff he ain't getting up
He's had enuff he ain't getting up
Winners losers mind confuser
Step in the ring and you know get bruises
Winners losers mind confuser
Jump inna de ring and you know you get bruises
Winners losers mind confuser
Bruises

Buzzing up with a musical attack
Rip it up with a boom sound we no lack
Got the rhythms the dub plat killa tracks
Annihilate and destroy them we do that
Letting them know that ah we come fe
Rock and control again
Ho ho well
Setting the pace in the place
Volume up driving them insane
Oh that's right

No weak heart can take it
Burn it to the ground
Watch how we shatters and we break it
Pressure
Stress it just drive them underground
Cannot take the music killa sound

Pressure Pressure Pressure
Annoying neighbours are banging on your door
Saying that they can't take your noise no more
Your bass is right in there face sounds murder raw
But ain't turning it off so call the law
Let them all know that
The rockers is hard and is here to stay
Ho ho well

And back off and just go away

You know the weak can't take it
Burn it to the ground
Watch how we shatters and we break it

Yer you know they're trying to fix me
And I can't take no

Biologic hazard's causing world deterioration
Yer its dread out there you know
Adding to palliation environmental situation

Chemical reaction would reduce the population
Yer its dread out there you know
Yer you know they're trying to fix me
But then they break me down again
Yer you know they're trying to fix me
And I can't take no
More domination
Your domination
Yer its dread out there you know

You're just a big Jinel,
Loves hate professional
Charlatan, Now who can tell?
They'll take you straight to hell
Love burns perpetual
Locked in a broken cell
Grave passion is denied
Guilty of what? She cried

Am in love with you but are you in love with me
Firing the love what, firing the love what
Firing the love firing the ho

Wrong move you'll break your neck
Its time you come correct
Give thanks 4 daily bread
Go wash your dirty head

The original troglodyte
Dressed up like dolomite
One match the worlds alight
Dogma can make you fight

Am in love with you but are you in love with me
Firing the love what, firing the love what
Firing the love firing the ho

How much do you love me but i hate you love
Am in love with you but are you in love with me
Firing the love what, firing the love what
Firing the love firing the ho

Fishy in the water fishy in the sea
Who'd you love best fishy or me


. . .


There's a hole in my head
And the lines they just can't stop falling out
And the truth from my lips
I scream it without a doubt
I always did as you said
Even though it was against my will
Ain't afraid any longer
Just hear as my lips they spill

Spit the words out
I cant stop from making this noise no more
Spit the words out
I cant stop from being SO paranoid

I will not fall for you
Not falling down for you
I will not fall for you

I don't regret what I said
you're like a weight that just held me down
Everything that I once was
You changed and made me your clown
No I'm not holding your hand
And I want you to move from me
I want to know that I've found a peace
From you am eternally free

Spit the words out
I cant stop from making this noise no more
Spit the words out
I cant stop from being SO paranoid

I will not fall for you
Not falling down for you
I will not fall for you

Spit the words out
I cant stop from being SO paranoid
Being so paranoid
Making this noise no more
Being so paranoid
Making this noise no more
Not falling down for you

. . .



Roots
Take Head that no man should decieve you
For many shall come and try to lead you
You'll hear of wars and rumours will set
Yet be not troubled it's not the time yet
It is written now it is written now
It's the beginning of sorrows
The beginning of the beginning of
The beginning of sorrows

For nations rising against nations
Kingdoms fighting against kingdoms
There shall be famine world-shaking pesteilence
Yet be not troubled it's not the end yet
It is written now it is written now
It's the beginning of sorrows

Fear not my brethren and my sistren
Jah light soon come fear not my brethren
I have great new, Jah manifestation

The beginning of sorrows
The beginning of sorrows
The beginning of sorrows
The beginning of sorrows

[Matthew 24,4-8]
