Let Them Know

We got to rise up and let them know
That we won't stop till a brighter day
We are the survivors in these streets
And we need peace we got to find a way

Babylon gone down there
And they can't take our right to fight for change
Babylon gone down there
Man woman and child we're all the same
Babylon gone down there
In time find your life's the price ya pay
Babylon gone down there
In exchange for a name fortune and fame

1st Verse – Ian I
I know that we can be one
If we all can overstand
That we are from just 1 creator
And until then, there'll be always war
Gottah come to an end, corruption not gonna do it again
Gottah come to an end, destruction not gonna do it again
And them fuss and them fight and it never get them anywhere in life
And you in the darkness? we're chanting you into the light


2nd Verse – Force
Dear heavenly one all I ask is this
before I leave this earth let me use my gift
At least to give and this isn't ego it's
just a wish I need to fulfill and if
I could compile a list of all the things I did
and wish I didn't it wouldn't be different
Cause I wouldn't be living the life that i am
And wouldn't be driven to be a better man
So I'm dedicatin this jam to all those
who understand the need to seize a chance
Circumstances change if you take a stand,
but I can't get my footing so I need a hand
Not applause, more like the type ya ball
into a fist to resist all these senseless laws
Can't afford to pause so we're movin forward
Try'n a forge a bond and connect like four.


Outro – Ian I

Now is the time for us to come together

Forward ever we say backward never

If we dont unite this could be disaster

We could lose everything we cherish now, forever ....
