Rootwords – Freedom of Speech feat. Denham Smith (Official Music Video)


Watch how the system a’ romp wit we ! Woy Talking word and dem’ senseless mi know dey don’t mean it No-no-no-no-no-no-no FREE YOUR MIND Some a dem’ nah want hear mi talk
And nah want see mi prosper FREE YOUR MIND Some a dem’ nah want see mi face broadcast pon’ dem’ media Only wanna see us down
They only wanna see us frowns FREE YOUR MIND FREEDOM OF SPEECH YEAH ! What is the justice in killing an innocent child ? I don’t feel just when I picture his venomous smile Where is the trust when they running round with muskets to bust kids Trigger happy, feeding and breeding injustice It keeps getting worse as the world spins The problem never ends Them people, they not my friends They bend laws, then they mend them Mash up the 5th ammendment Not to mention the 14th ! They profile and front ! Do whatever they want In the name of the law Try to pop – chop my lion paw ! So I can’t even claw to my human rights I see the flaw when it’s only my jaw that can put up a fight But even if I talk it doesn’t mean I’ll walk At least I’m in the court and not outlined in chalk Right ? Affirmative action, at least I got support But don’t budge ! I wonder if the judge or the jury was bought ! FREE YOUR MIND Some a dem’ nah want hear mi talk
And nah want see mi prosper FREE YOUR MIND Some a dem’ nah want see mi face broadcast pon’ dem’ media Only wanna see us down
They only wanna see us frowns FREE YOUR MIND FREEDOM OF SPEECH YEAH ! I’ll take your rules and regulations if they weren’t based on segregation Seperation, discrimination and race relations I’m all for peace, love and all of that good stuff So please give me more of that ’cause I can’t get enough ! I’ve had enough of your lies, spies, enemies in disguise Who try to hypnotise and dim out the cries Of the people I see you through the looking glass – the peep hole With the eye on and eagle Them man not equal ! To anything that God teach Even if you ‘aint atheist you won’t listen to what they preach My words screech through the streets like their sirens I’ll never ever get locked up (In my dreams) I flow steams of thought For the people who be needing support In this world where they killing for sport One by one we drop-drop-drop When the guns blow And they pop-pop-pop ! FREE YOUR MIND Some a dem’ nah want hear mi talk
And nah want see mi prosper FREE YOUR MIND Some a dem’ nah want see mi face broadcast pon’ dem’ media Only wanna see us down
They only wanna see us frowns FREE YOUR MIND FREEDOM OF SPEECH YEAH ! Can’t take the vibes way a’ gwaan
[Dem’ dey tings] 
A’ separation dat nuh nice iya Can’t take the vibes way a’ gwaan
Discrimination dat nuh right iya Rasta ! Only wanna live in peace Iy ! Only wanna live in peace Ohh Watch how the system a’ romp wit we !
