Yeah, Contradition global.
Madness taking over
Too much men in mixup
One bag o’ mixup, Rasta nuh live so.
[Alborosie]
Contradition glo-bal
Still good conquers evil
David still slew Goliath
Mi gwaan hold that vibe here (“here” sounds like “ya”)

[Alborosie]
Too many idolize badness and slackness
“Island in the sun” just falling in darkness — Jamaica – called “island in the sun”
One love and one heart? Whe the heart deh? — “One love, one heart” – common Jamaican phrase
Nowadays you’re not cool if yuh nuh heartless
Flashing with a 9 like you’re lawless
Like justice a-buy out of war-ness ????
Well got a six for a 9 and a 9 in the waist, then a sentence to life ’cause

((Chorus))
[Chronixx]
Contradition global.
Madness taking over
Too much men in mixup
One bag o’ mixup, Rasta nuh live so.

Contradition glo-bal
Still good conquers evil
David still slew Goliath
Mi gwaan hold that vibe here (“here” sounds like “ya”)

[Alborosie]
Well Margarita nuh flankaz
When bullets a ram-pam-pam-pam.
Who a-call dem big shots deh (“there” sounds like “deh”)
Dem a do it from a mansion…

Politician and gunman are linked
So contradiction run the ting yeah

((Chorus))

[Alborosie]
Well Margarita nuh flankas
When bullets a ram-pam-pam-pam.
Who a-call dem big shots deh (“there” sounds like “deh”)
Dem a do it from a mansion.

Politicians and gunman are linked
So contradiction run the ting.

Too good yet too bad and yuh deh ‘pon the two sides, people nuh know wha’ to choose

((instruments))

[Alborosie]
Too many idolize badness and slackness
“Island in the sun” just falling in darkness — Jamaica – called “island in the sun”
One love and one heart? Whe the heart deh? — “One love, one heart” – common Jamaican phrase
Nowadays you must be heartless
[Chronixx]
In the morning, no one bag of mixup

Contradition is glo-bal

One bag of… One bag of…

Contradition is glo-bal
Contradition is glo-bal
