    LYRICS

    It’s a jungle out there and life is unfair
    for the ones left to scrap for the scrapes
    Generations have grown in the same situation:
    tribal warfare, chattel slavery and now taxes
    The people never have enough and children are born fatherless
    and families have no one to rely on
    so from blood sweat and tears the solution appears
    the pride needs defending by a lion

    will you be the one for the mountains and valleys are these city streets
    will you be the one to keep looking forward and never retreat

    in this jungle out there with so many limitations
    set intentionally just for us to fail
    with your plans in motion and standing in your power
    and strength from your lioness you’re bound to prevail
    the mission is for those who can endure
    and wont stand for injustice and oppression no more
    and the journey is for everyone to share
    when the lions are leading there is nothing to fear

    will you be the one, for the mountains and valleys are these city streets
    will you be the one to keep moving forward and never retreat

    A future for the youth must be priority
    Establishing a nation where they all will be free
    To focus on spiritual cultivation
    and find themselves through ancient preparation

    in this jungle out there some people mek the evil rule dem nature
    turning life into a rat race
    and the youths dem head a burn cause the only thing they’re learning
    from those people’s how to rob you to your face
    instead of giving them guidance and encouragement
    you’re provoking them daily giving rise to resent
    but the tension that they’re building up inside
    will find direction and purpose in the lion pride

    will you be the one, for the mountains and valleys are these city streets
    will you be the one to keep moving forward and never retreat

    oh ‘cause it’s a jungle out there

    interlude

    A future for the youth must be priority
    Establishing a nation where they all will be free
    So the lionesses rise to the occasion
    And nurture them with conscious meditation

    It’s a jungle out there and life is unfair
    for the ones left to scrap for the scrapes
    Generations have grown in the same situation:
    tribal warfare, chattel slavery and now taxes
    The people never have enough and children are born fatherless
    and families have no one to rely on
    so from blood sweat and tears the solution appears
    the pride needs defending by a lion
