Break Down the Walls (Warm-Up Jam)


We've got to break down the walls
Down inna Babylon, that separate us
We've got to break down the walls
Down inna Babylon, that seem to divide us
We need some peace and love
Down inna Babylon around and beside us
We're from the righteous tribe
Down inna Babylon, and Jah Jah will guide us
We've got to break down the walls
Down inna Babylon, that separate us
We've got to break down the walls
Down inna Babylon, that seem to divide us
Until the right time comes down inna Babylon
Alright, break down, alright

It's time we check ourselves
Down inna Babylon, and know where we're going
Instead of playing bad
Down inna Babylon, while our problems are growing
We've got to break down the walls
Down inna Babylon, that separate us
We've got to break down the walls
Down inna Babylon, that seem to divide us

Ladadedadada
Alright, alright
Ladadadadedadada
Alright

We've got to stand up strong
Down inna Babylon, no matter the pressure
We need some action now
Down inna Babylon, and the sooner the better

Come make we chant it down
Down inna Babylon, and live it forever
Come make we chant it down
Down inna Babylon, make we love it forever

We've got to break down the walls
Down inna Babylon, that seem to divide us
We've got to break down the walls
Down inna Babylon, that surround us
We gonna break down the walls
Down inna Babylon, that separate us
Until the right time come down inna Babylon

Alright
Dadadadada
Alright
Dadadadada
Alright

We're gonna break down the walls
Down inna Babylon, and Jah Jah will guide us
A solidarity now inna Babylon, shall be our motto
'Cause when the right time come
Down inna Babylon, dis yah battle be hotter
A solidarity down inna Babylon, shall be our motto
'Cause when the right time come
Down inna Babylon, dis yah battle be hotter

We've got to break down the walls
Down inna Babylon, that seem to divide us
We've got to break down the walls
Down inna Babylon, that separate us
We've got to break down the walls
Down inna Babylon, that surround us
We're gonna break down the walls
Down inna Babylon
Alright

Alright, alright

Dadadada...
Alright

A solidarity now inna Babylon, shall be our motto
Down inna... time comes down inna Babylon

Alright
Ladadadadada...

Details:

The album limps out with this vocally flat rendition of Mikey Dread's 'Break Down the Walls'. This cod-reggae attempt at patois is redolent of cultural appropriation. Oh dayo, dayo, dayo, me say dayo. Biddly biddly biddly biddly biddly biddly bong yo...
