Doped
Demoralised
Dizzied
Dozed
Traumatized

Blinded by resplendent lite of love
Dazzled by di firmament of freedom
I'm couldn deteck deceit
All wen it kick I'm in I'm teet
I'm couldn cry khorupshon
An believe inna man
I'm nevvah know bout cleek
I'm did umble an meek
I'm nevvah know intrigue
I'm nevvah inna dat deh league
I'm nevvah andahstan
Dat on di road to sawshalism
Yu could buck-up nepotism
I'm wife dangerous
I'm bredda tretchero
An I'm kozn very vicious

Now like a fragile fragment af lite
Trapped inna di belly a di daak night
Like a bline man stuicified an dazed
Last an alone in a mystical maze

Widoutn ruddah nar hankah nar sail

If yu like
Bus inna di labyrinth af ife
If yu like

Meditorim pan di bud ale days
Face doun pan di gleumin sea shore
Not soh certn not soh sure like before
Di salt a di sea pan di son inno I'm eye
An I'm would qi are houk
If am could cry
Di soun of di surge of di sec
Harmonize wid di swonnin bamboo trees
An I'm brains jus a fick
