From the recording Becoming Me

This track is part of my debut Reggae EP, Becoming Me. I dub it my mission song, a revolutionary anthem that deconstructs the deep corruption of contemporary media and politics.

Lyrics

Break their system, chop their totem
Babylon system, our social problem
Break their system, chop their totem
Babylon system, our social problem

To the left, the well meaning intelligentsia
Anti-racist, eager to tip their barista
Yes they worry because they've looked up the data
But can well-fed sheep wake up and shout ya basta?

To the right, deplorable reactionaries
Patriots, they're surrounded by adversaries
Shielded by guns, chastity and other fairies
While swallowing whole conspiracy theories

Break their system, chop their totem
Babylon system, our social problem

Beliefs and desires driven by for-profit media
Deliberately pulling us toward a state of coma
Reclaim your humanity, dare to enter a new era
In truth I feel terrified, to cope I place my faith in Jah

Break their system, chop their totem
Babylon system, our social problem
Break their system, chop their totem
Babylon system, our social problem

Down below, disenfranchised individuals
Not only poor, left behind as residuals
Our freedom captive to the fright of their visuals
While communities gradually lose their rituals

Up above, the infamous illuminati
Ever further needing to lure everybody
Understandably they're protecting their booty
Precipitating the fall of society

Break their system, chop their totem
Babylon system, our social problem

Corporations legally fund political candidates
Fueling advertising wars to conquer the electorate
Hence wherefrom do our elected officials get their mandates?
And who profits from the divisions that the media narrates?

Break their system, chop their totem
Babylon system, our social problem
Break their system, chop their totem
Babylon system, our social problem
Break their system, chop their totem
Babylon system, our social problem
Break their system, chop their totem
Babylon system, our social problem
