Babylon System - part one


We refuse to be… What you wanted us to be.
We are what we are… that's the way it's going to be.
You can't educate us… for no equal opportunity:
Talking 'bout my freedom… freedom and liberty!

We've been trodding on the winepress much too long… rebel… rebel!
Yes, we've been trodding on the winepress much too long… rebel… rebel!

Babylon system is the vampire… sucking the children day by day…
Me say the babylon system is the vampire… falling empire…
Suckin' the blood of the sufferers, yeah!
Building church and university… deceiving the people continually.
Graduating' thieves and murderers…
They sucking the blood of the sufferers… sufferers.

Tell the children the truth…

Tell the children the truth…

Tell the children the truth right now!

Come on and tell the children the truth…

'Cause we've been trodding on the winepress much too long… rebel… rebel!
And we've been taken for granted much too long… rebel… rebel now!

Trodding on the winepress… got to rebel, y'all…
We've been trodding on the winepress much too long…. rebel… rebel…

From the very first day we left the shores of our Father's land…
We've been trampled on… we've been oppressed, yeah…
