The Lyrics Are Below

 

Settle For Nothing

A jail cell is freedom from the pain in my home

Hatred passed on, passed on and passed on

A world of violent rage

But it's one that I can recognise

Having never seen the colour of my father's eyes

Yes, I dwell in hell, but it's a hell that I can grip

I tried to grip my family

But I slipped

 

To escape from the pain in an existence mundane

I gotta 9, a sign, a set and now I gotta name

 

Read my writing on the wall

No-one's here to catch me when I fall

Death is on my side....suicide!

 

A jail cell is freedom from the pain in my home

Hatred passed on, passed on and passed on

A world of violent rage

But it's one that I can recognise

Having never seen the colour of my father's eyes

Yes, I dwell in hell, but it's a hell that I can grip

I tried to grip my family

But I slipped

 

To escape from the pain in an existence mundane

I gotta 9, a sign, a set and now I gotta name

 

Read my writing on the wall

No-one's here to catch me when I fall

Caught between my culture and the system....genocide!

 

Read my writing on the wall

No-one's here to catch me when I fall

If ignorance is bliss, then knock the smile off my face

Yeah!

 

If we don't take action now

We settle for nothing later

Settle for nothing now

And we'll settle for nothing later

 

If we don't take action now

We settle for nothing later

We'll settle for nothing now

And we'll settle for nothing later

 

If we don't take action now

We'll settle for nothing later

We settle for nothing now

And we'll settle for nothing later

 

If we don't take action now

We settle for nothing later

We'll settle for nothing now

And we'll settle for nothing later
