Spread power with words
The gold that you stole
The pillage and the plunder
Is it any wonder that we're here?

It ain't no mystery
The fecting and the shooting
That's the real history
We're only here 'cos you were there
Consequences of your global pillage

I never had the feeling to
Either destroy or conquer
I sift to the debris you left in your wake
When you pushed us in to third place
When the truth is uncovered
And the story's been told
You won't be able to look me in the face

We're only here 'cos you were there
Here in England a global village
Consequences of your global pillage
Master D chat it up

I sift to the debris you left in your wake
When you pushed us in to third place
When the truth is uncovered
And the story's been told
You won't be able to look me in the face

You treated my mother's land
Just like one big plantation
You did this to the African
You did this to the Asian
Famine was caused not by god but taxation

The fruits of our labor
Were used to build your nation
Sucking us dry our country's natural juice
Yes, our underdevelopment was
Caused by your abuse.

Gonna check the missing pages
We'll be adding up the numbers
We'll be looking for witnesses so
They can tell our brothers
We'll be using the technology
Jammin' with it consciously
We are gonna spread power with words.
