Kingdom Lyrics Meanings

Kingdom Lyrics

Facts, from the rack
Yeah

Port-au-prince is a kingdom
Kingston is a kingdom
New Orleans is a kingdom
South Central is a kingdom, y'all
Freedom, free men are freedom (freedom)
Black life is a kingdom
Why kill yourself for no reason, fah?
(Facts from the rack)
Why kill yourself for no reason, fah?
(Yute) chat to dem with no meaning, fah

Hold the sword like a hand should
Right to passage into manhood
Heightened malice in the land, look
Like the lights of havoc do no damn good
Half sleep from being over preached
The other half sleep 'cause the Xan good
A chief would take his hand like a thief
And make him stand like a man would
In the face of an ambush
To the back and they attack
Front of they front line, out the plane
With no parachutes and they backpacks
Choppin' weed, and droppin' seeds
Then flowers grow where they land at
Properties on top of these
To make power flow from they hand claps
Suicide, it's suicide
You and I wouldn't do divide
Who arrived to see you survived, it means
Two would die to make you alive, it means
You should die for the two that died, it means
You arrived with the youth inside you, king
You align with the truth inside of things
Wise to the lies that the youth provide and bring, war

Does the king make a kingdom?
Or the kingdom make a king?
Is it free when it's freedom?
Or being dumb being free?
Does the king make a kingdom?
Or the kingdom make a king?
Is it free when it's freedom?
Or being dumb being free?

Port-au-prince is a kingdom
Kingston is a kingdom
New Orleans is a kingdom
South Central is a kingdom, yeah
Freedom, free men are freedom
Black life is a kingdom
Why kill yourself for no reason, fah?
(Babylon, ain't no king, Babylon ain't kingdom)
Why kill yourself for no reason, fah?
(Babylon, ain't no king)
(Yute, Babylon ain't kingdom) chat to dem with no meaning, fah Well if man was meant to fly
Jah woulda made us all with wings
Well he made us all with crowns, that means seh every man a king
Your mind it is your castle, mankind govern how you think
The ghetto is a kingdom, care not how di gully stink (yute)
No one can change mi mind, no I am thoroughly convinced
My woman is a queen, that bring forth more princess and prince
And if you add up the equation it must mean I'm royal, since
Everyone in my surroundings is of royal heritage
Not everyone of royal blood dress up in a mink
Whole heap of king and queen, with dem roof mek out of zinc
So Jah bless the baby mother, wash her pitney inna sink
And ah the generation weh ah take it to the brink

Does the king make a kingdom?
Or does a kingdom make a king?
This hidden empire of kings and queens
That no one's noticing
Does the king make a kingdom?
Or does a kingdom make king?
This hidden empire of kings and queens
That no one's noticing (yute)

Port-au-prince is a kingdom
Kingston is a kingdom
New Orleans is a kingdom
South Central is a kingdom, yuh
Freedom, free men are freedom
Black life is a kingdom
Why kill yourself for no reason, fah?
(Babylon, ain't no king, Babylon ain't kingdom)
Why kill yourself for no reason, fah?
(Babylon, ain't no king)
(Yute, Babylon ain't kingdom) chat to dem with no meaning, fah
Chat to dem with no meaning, fah

Only fools would proud of the dead man
My mind is an excellent weapon
I will not die for a label, let's come to the table
And put together all our blessings
Blessing religiously, bless this ability
Blessings materially, identify enemy
Disconnect from the mentally
Put all of our energy into the kingdom
Back to the front on my way now
God has to show you your way 'round
Tired, I watch while you lay down
You go where I sleep I put art to the beat
Take a part of my piece and inherit the heritage
We're not American dreamin'
We're realizing a kingdom

Only fools would proud of the dead man
My mind is an excellent weapon
I will not die for a label, let's come to the table
And put together all our blessings
Blessing religiously, bless this ability
Blessings materially, identify enemy
Disconnect from the mentally
Put all of our energy into the kingdom
Back to the front on my way now
God has to show you your way 'round
Tired, I watch while you lay down
You go where I sleep I put art to the beat
Take a part of my piece and inherit the heritage
We're not American dreamin'
We're realizing a kingdom
