Lyrics

[Intro]
Wow
Yo Isah
You mean to tell me say if me nuh go inna di army...
No free tuition?
Yes I
Wow
Nana na
Wow yeah, you zeet?
A who fund di war?

[Verse 1]
Tribal war inna Libya
Tribal war inna Syria
Look how people a live in yah
Watch Oliver kill Olivia
Brother a fight 'gainst sister
Rasta against the minister
People against prime minister
Formula fi war and sinister
Government safe pon di hillside, inside
People a dead pon di outside
A dem buy gun gi' the both sides
Then a laugh and floss pon boat ride
Plus them never yet get blame
Full of big words, pon news dem a explain
Listen dem line yah truly
Fi every youth weh dead pon line of duty
Mi say...

[Chorus]
There's no peace inna war
Drive by inna car
They don't know what they are fighting for
AK's, SLR
Poppa cry, mama bawl
They don't know what they are fighting for

[Hook]
A who fund di war?
A who fund di war?
Yes I

[Verse 2]
The one yah make your heart leap
"Starting tomorrow me a start t'eif
Because the war funded by wall street
And me couldn't get the school fee when me ask fi it
So me ago commit pure murder
Be the cruelest thing you ever heard of
Run through lanes and villages
Then me will the scholarships fi di colleges"
That was the voice of African
Youth weh get tricked by babylon
Another youth fall victim
To babylon's stinking system

[Chorus]
There's no peace inna war
Drive by inna car
They don't know what they are fighting for
AK's, SLR
Poppa cry, mama bawl
They don't know what they are fighting for

[Hook]
Ooh yeah
Nana na
A who fund di war?
A who fund di war?
Yeah
Fi di youth dem, nana
Fi dem troops yah
Weh no know weh dem a shoot fa

[Verse 3]
Some say the ending a draw night
But me say the starting a draw near
Come people make we start fight
Fi put an ending to modern warfare
Babylon, make me tell you this...
Without bias and prejudice
No ghetto youth nah benefit
So send the chorus go to Benedict

[Chorus]
There's no peace inna war
Drive by inna car
They don't know what they are fighting for
AK's, SLR
Poppa cry, mama bawl
They don't know what they are fighting for

[Verse 4]
Children dying of cancer... (yes)
And dem say dem no have no answer... (wow, wow)
Huh, warfare a get di whole of dem sponsor
Get we money and waste it, and a poor people a face it
Take we money build pure banks, and build spaceships

[Chorus]
There's no peace inna war
Drive by inna car
They don't know what they are fighting for
AK's, SLR
Poppa cry, mama bawl
They don't know what they are fighting for

[Outro]
Oooh yeah, Yes I
