Thievery Corporation – State of the Union

A thievery reggae classic; they taught us to get the best out of the musical universe. Eclectic and sharp!

Consciousness rise up!

The people live in misery Govemment a work

But govemment them is a monckery Respect to the youths

Whether in front and all dem a back a me Why don’t you treat them the way you should

And I know all the things you hide

Even though it’s a good disguise

And we see all the things you do

And what you do will comeback on you

You think we can’t fight what the eyes can’t see

Because we are blinded by poverty

The people live in misery Govemment a work

But govemment them is a monckery Respect to the youths

Whether in front and all dem a back a me Why don’t you treat them the way you should

It’s like the people you want them to rebel

And fire gunshots and burn buildings to hell

And after that you a go want treat me well

It’s like you have the people under a spell

Talking to the people in a congress

A we vote you in, so you must put out your best

After all we no in a contest

It’s the state of the union address

The people live in misery Govemment a work

But govemment them is a monckery Respect to the youths

Whether in front and all dem a back a me Why don’t you treat them the way you should

Broadcasting lies on the television sreen

Trying to get us hooked on your american dream

We up on your games if you know wha me mean

When you cheated on your wife with your money and your schemes

People rule and a that you fi follow

We and nuh no call me no nigga

Do a good term and you deserve another

Signed musically yours, the general sleepywonder
