LYRICS 2022: Empty Promises by Jahmiel

[Intro]
Why is it dat di system mek some decisions weh nuh benefit di people?
It only show selfishness and deceit
What about di less fortunate?
What about those who have no helping hand?
Patriotz

[Verse 1]
System nuh cyar fi di poor an’ mi see it
Yeah, mi see di strong, dem a prey pon di weak
How could I turn di other cheek
When people still cyaan find food fi eat?
Government nuh cyar fi see people a lose
But have yuh ever tink stepping inna dem shoes?
Imagine cyaan provide nothin’ fi yuh yute
Thеse days start show wi di truth

[Chorus]
Seh di system all fi dеm self, yeah
Poor man nuh get nuh help, yeah
They talk, but there is no action
Strictly empty promises
Our leaders need to be led, yeah
Hungry need to be fed, yeah
They talk, but there is no action
Strictly empty promises (Yeah), yo, Bing

[Verse 2]
Anuh like seh mi waan depend pon nobody
Mi try look a work but there’s none for mi
Mi nuh grow wid a rich mummy or daddy
An’ mi have mi own family weh a depend pon mi
Depression start a pick mi mentally
Sometime mi feel fi hurt miself physically
Of thoughts of killing, thoughts of robbery
But mi nuh waan do dat, a end of story
Cah mi have more fi lose dan fi gain
What ’bout mi son weh carry mi last name?
And if mi nah dead fi di world change
Dat means seh mi a dead in vain
Cah dis is for generations to come
Dem cyaan enslave yuh when yuh have wisdom
Bun dem indoctrination
Dem waan fi see people go dung

[Chorus]
Seh di system all fi dem self, yeah
Poor man nuh get nuh help, yeah
They talk, but there is no action
Strictly empty promises
Our leaders need to be led, yeah
Hungry need to be fed, yeah
They talk, but there is no action
Strictly empty promises

[Bridge]
Dem a try tek wi freedom
While wi have a mind of our own, yeah
Your mind shall free you
But wi nuh born as nuh slave (Nuh slave)
Oh, we were born to give thanks unto di Maker
Evilous men could neva outdo di Creator

[Outro]
System, yuh doom
Yuh doom, yuh doom
System, yuh doom
Yuh doom, yuh doom
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh
