Here's a reggae tune i just wrote. C4C Thanks for the help!


“My son be a good boy and go to school.”
The father said to his son, but this world is cruel.
The rebels took Freetown and took the boy.
“Kill your father or you’ll loose your arm.”
They said to the boy, whose minds now destroyed.
Crazed with hate, the rebels spread termination.
And the people face annihilation.

Would you still wear that ice,
If you knew is cost a man’s life?
Rivers run with blood, what is the price?
It’s only themselves they slay and betray
All they can say is T.I.A.
Yeah, all they can say is T.I.A.

It’s in the lion’s mountains there is trouble.
And after, a country that’s left is rubble.
Fifty thousand people put to rest.
Hundreds of thousands fled for their lives.
Fled to the east for they’re downpressed.
We must learn a lesson from Sierra Leone.
Only tragedy when I and I look from Jah’s thrown.

Would you still wear that ice,
If you knew is cost a man’s life?
Rivers run with blood, what is the price?
It’s only themselves they slay and betray
All they can say is T.I.A.
Yeah, all they can say is T.I.A.

These rock stars and rappers were their bling.
Did you know blood was the true cost of the ring?
A stone drenched in blood of African people.
In Babylon they ask, who are you and why care?
I am no disciple; I just want life for all people.
Foolish people do not understand, but now I see the light.
Like Mr. Marley said, we got to stand up for our rights.

Would you still wear that ice,
If you knew is cost a man’s life?
Rivers run with blood, what is the price?
It’s only themselves they slay and betray
All they can say is T.I.A.
Yeah, this is Africa. This is Africa. Oh, This is Africa.

Sick man. I love it. I can't really nit pick at much, except for spelling mistakes, but other than that, it's really good. Keep up the great work.

Babylon? Check. Jah? Check. Lion? Check. Africa? Check.
You certainly have written a reggae tune. Perhaps a little cliched and one might question the sincerity coming from a resident of "Chi-town", but that's the problem with the internet; there's no telling who anyone really is. It's got a good message and it's well written. Good job.

Great film, it was. This seems more than a little ripped from it, but in good reggae fashion, enough to get the groove going, to get a message across. At least we know Mr. DiCaprio has contributed toward something noble.
