Tribes At War
Nas & Damian Marley Lyrics


Tribal war
We nah want no more a dat
Every man deserve to earn
And every child deserve to learn, now
Tribal war
A nuh dat we a defend
Every man deserve a turn
Like a flame deserve to burn
Tribal war
We nah want no more a dat
Every man deserve a turn
And every child deserve to learn
Tribal war
A nuh dat we a defend
Every man deserve a turn
Like Babylon deserve to burn

Man what happened to us
Geographically they moved us
From Africa
We was once happiness-pursuers
Now we back stabbing, combative and abusive
The African and Arab go at it they most Muslim
We should be moving in unison
Disputes would end
Bounty hunters and grape street get cool again
Sub-standard housing
Got the young running rampant
Wilding, for a Phantom
He can style in
Mask on his face
Grabbing his Ruger
Saying nobody move or I'll shoot you
Man you're expiring
Catch 25 and he does it like a man
He sides with black
White pride and Mexican
Survive the best he can
Strap a shank to his thigh
Why do we all collide
Why do the young die
Extortion, murder and burglary
Tattoos his chest
Says his enemies don't deserve to breathe

Tribal war
We nah want no more a dat
Every one deserve to earn
And every child deserve to learn, now
Tribal war
A nuh dat we a defend
Every man deserve a turn
Like Babylon deserve to burn

I drink poison
Then I vomit diamonds
I gave you Mandela, black Dalai Lamas
I gave you music
You enthused in my kindness
So how dare you reduce me to Donny Imus
Timeless in case we never been acquainted
Flyness who made it
It gets duplicated
Mindless violence
Well let me try to paint it
Here's the 5 steps
In hopes to explain it
One: It's me and my nation against the world
Two: Then me and my clan against the nation
Three: Then me and my fam' against the clan
Four: Then me and my brother we no hesitation, uh
Go against the fam' until they cave in
Five: Now who's left in this deadly equation?
That's right, it's me against my brother
Then we point a Kalashnikov
And kill one another

Tribal war
We nah want no more a dat
Every one deserve to earn
And every child deserve to learn, now
Tribal war
A nuh dat we a defend
Every man deserve a turn
Like Babylon deserve to burn

Man a war tribal over colors
Over money, over land, and over oil, and over god
And over idols, and even lovers
Over breakfast, over dinner, over suppers
Over jungle, over rema, over buckers
Over Brooklyn, over Queens, and over Rutgers
Over red, and over blue, and over chuckers
Over red and over blue and under covers
Tribal trouble
The drive-bys double
'Cause the youth dem nah go a war
And go fight with knuckle
The two sides scuffle
Vietnam nah go a war
With no more kung fu nun chuckle
Missile and shuttle
And the Queen of England and Uncle Sam
Dem a flex dem muscle
The tribal hustle
Blood diamond poodle
Survival struggle

Tribal war
We nah want no more a dat
Every one deserve to earn
And every child deserve to learn
Tribal war
A nuh dat we a defend
Each and every one deserve a turn
Like a flame deserve to burn
Tribal war
We nah want no more a dat
Every one deserve to earn
And every child deserve to learn
Tribal war
A nuh dat we a defend
'Cause every man deserve a turn
Like Babylon deserve to burn

Listen to it in 8D with headphones on, but nobody posted an 8D version yet. But this would be fire in 8D. As a matter of fact, listen to 8D audio with headphones on, it’s all over youtube and its amazing with your headphones. You’d thank me later.
