mellow mood

“Da un punto di vista armonico e ritmico, Sound Of A War è molto semplice e potente, il che la rende forse la canzone più “Mellow Mood” del nuovo album. Il modo in cui è stata prodotta e la sua sonorità però sono un buon esempio del sound generale dell’intero disco. Per quanto riguarda il testo, purtroppo la guerra continua ad essere un argomento di attualità che tocca tutti noi. Esplorando l’impatto sociale delle fake news divulgate dai mass media abbiamo voluto essere diretti ed onesti: “Gwaan like you sad but you only pretend. Inna reality you don’t give a damn” (“Fate solo finta di essere tristi. In realtà non ve ne frega niente”).

Il reggae è sempre stato una musica militante con un chiaro messaggio, e questa canzone dice che non ci tiriamo indietro.”
People you take it too easy
Like unnu play with a ball
Talk you a talk so easy
While them want start a war
So me beg unnu stop chat nothing
Caw you nuh see what a gwaan
The system just stopped working
And them waan start a war

Rampimpim rampampam
This yah the sound of a war
Rampempem rampampam
So we wake up in a war

Has that time come
Or it's not too far
When anywhere we turn look like a gun war
But if affi them house it affi be a five stars
Some man a pree peace but some a pree war
Mi burn Donald Trump and mi burn Clinton
Burn Rothschild burn the NATO
Me burn Rokefeller me burn the Neocon
No matter if a white or if a black man
Them man deh words fake like silicone
And them vision is not we vision
Inside jobs a go cause division
Me know war a dem ambition

Mr Minister don't take we fi fool
You think we don't know the thing weh you do
Nuff time you don't mind if people a cry
Long time no tears no drop from your eyes
And when fi we poor life end
Gwaan like you sad but yuo only pretend
Inna reality you don't give a damn
That's why mister me and you could never hang
You sing lalalala
Me hear you sing mmmh
Inna yuh room you sing mmmh lala
Mister you a whistle caw you start a next war
