So give a smile to the camera you see,
You're on CCTV,
They can see you, they can see me,
So give a wave to the authority.

Ay big brother way up high,
With you're eye in the sky,
Looking around, looking around town,
Looking us up, looking us down,
Are we just numbers to you,
Just ones and twos,
And when we fight you shine up your light,
And when we unite you come ready to fight.

Don't bother me,
Cause me nah stand it till you're wickedness done, and you run from town,
And until that day come,
I'm gonna fight you with my heart and soul,
No chink inna me armour,
Watch me strike and your body turn cold,
How can I be a warrior,
In this system that favours the weak.

Some man them chase and him run,
And then they shoot him with a gun,
But he was just walking round, walking around town.
