Why Try


(Just one of those days)
Yo… me say, one of those nights.
Fully automatic echo fill the streets at moonlight.
And everywhere you turn you’re in another mon sight.
Weapon a discharge and, erase a life.
I mon been crying fi so long.
Trying to get the people dem fi overstand me song.
Try fi get active cause dem acting so wrong,
And if I’m not allowed to speak then guarantee it,
That I’ll be gone.  So hear me say…

Why try fi make it better?
Why try, to bring the sun in stormy weather?
Why try, to pull yah hopes up out of the gutter?
Who cares if you turn your back or if you help your brother?

Why try?
Why fight if you know you might die?
If you know you might go crazy, would you dare to waste your time?
You can turn a blind eye, but that nah go mek it right.
When you’re tired of the darkness, who’s going to flip the light on?

Why try fi make it better?
Who cares if me keep on push, or if me satta?
Cryin mon, I’m crying cause the fire’s getting hotter.
To many ghetto youth them a done turn shotta.

So. I mon a standing cause me know,
It’s not how it should go.
Got a fork in the road, unu know which way to go?
Cha… me didn’t think so.
No way out, no way in, no way to surmount.
This old horse is my only source of transport and… blood clot.
Him a pass out.
But if him nah get up then me keep on pressin’.
Forward me ever steppin’, each new day brings a lesson,
Good and evil, heap a questions.
Why try? Why bother? Why you ask?
Why put the burden on just one man when humanity got the task?

Why try fi make it better?
Why try, to bring the sun in stormy weather?
Why try, to pull yah hopes up out of the gutter?
Who cares if you turn your back or if you help your brother?

(Just one of those days)
One of those nights.
Tired of the wrong so me a dunn make it right.
You the conductor, the commander of your life.
Some may have the best intentions hidden in malicious minds.
Some will cast them judgment like a serpent in the night.
So my mission of enlightment is to spread some insight.

Why try fi make it better?
Because if you don’t then you become the upsetter.
Lead by the example of yah livity nah let nah
Babylon ways of thinking come and disrupt yah temple.

Yah affi keep on pushin’ mon
Yah affi keep on pressin’.
Yah affi keep on climbin’ mon,
Yah affi keep on steppin’.
Yah affi keep it righteous mon,
Yah affi keep it blessed.
Yah affi keep it natty mon,
The congo-dread rebellious.

Why try fi make it better?
Because if you don’t then you become the upsetter.
Lead by the example of yah livity nah let nah
Babylon ways of thinking come and disrupt yah temple.

Just one of those days,
One of those ways
The system of capitalism built deh pon the back of slaves.
Only difference now is that we get we likkle pay,
But we forced to buy dem products, so we back at same place.

I mon been crying fi so long.
Trying to get the people dem fi overstand me song.
Try fi get active cause dem acting so wrong,
And if I’m not allowed to speak then guarantee it,
That I’ll be gone.  So me say…
Me try cry, even tears.
See how me a heart cry yes, but who cares?
There’s no fault, no one but myself.
Things do happen words can’t explain what’s in my brain
But still me boom.
Dry cry me a boom.
Try cry me a boom.
Unload me lyrics I mon a try cry boom.
One of those days… still me try.
