Lyrics

Written by: Charlton Williams

Wha' mi seh, World order huh, the system, the system get off my back.

A youthman come up to I one day an' ask what I think of the situation taking place from day to day?
I seh youthman listen to me an' lesten to me carefully, you best start fending for yourself and your family and don't depend on promises made by men from on up high you will live your life with the comfort of a fool, with no progress years down the line men from on up high, don't work for you and I, our development and prosperity bears no burden in their minds, because they're a part

Part of the system to control an' hol' yuh down yes they're a part
Part of the system to keep you checked and in line, now they're a part
Part of the system to control an' hol' yuh down, yes they're a part
Part of the system to keep you checked and in line

Look at our messenger that has been cut down, all because of the truth that they possessed, things that are happening is bigger than you and I, it's called the world order everything under one heading, any resistance faced possible elimination
From birth we're controlled never to reach our full potential, the needle, food, washed over education
We are well groomed upon leaving their institution, I say

Part of the System to control an' hol' yuh down, yes they're a part
Part of the System to keep you checked and inline, now they're a part
Part of the System to control and hold yuh down, yes they're a part
Part of the System to keep you checked and inline

We learned so little about our culture
Just his-story
Always to look up to men that travel the high seas
Just his-story
In ships that devastate, capture and segregate our people, his-story
Take my foolish advice youthman and start farming up the land, live your life slowly
stay away from food that travel fast and don't become a part of the system yea

Part of the system to control and hold yuh down, yes they're a part
Part of the System to keep you checked and in line, now they're a part
Part of the system to control and hold you down, yes they're a part
Part of the System to keep you checked and inline
