Dee Dice and Hiba Rasheed Cuts: The Wayfarer Producers: Dub Poets Collective Label: Raqs Records Year: 2013 ------ Toofless teams up with poetess Hiba Rasheed (MLN) and soulstress Dee Dice to pay homage to the original land of the Nubians. Sudan, formerly the biggest country in Africa before its secession from the South in 2011, is being ruled by an autocratic regime since 1989. The corrupt government has driven the nation into a state of poverty, tribulation and civil unrest. ------ Lyrics: Let me paint you a picture, let me paint you a portrait.. This is music for the people Get rid of your ego! Fist up high for this afro-revolution sequel We just want a peaceful, living and its equal Give it up the street's full, they marching till their knees throbe Everything is real slow, tear gas free throws This is not a freak show, these bare facts are real though Raise tax and claim it is as ''zakat'', whats the deal bro? Never was a broke one obliged to adhere yo! Everything is backwards People with no access, fill us with distractions, they bill us and they stack chips Invisible sanctions, political pranksters Back stab Sudan and they put it on Islam Yes its really just a matter of time before these drums make the world move Listen to the sound of the people as they come through Bum rush your troops and your bullet proof ones too All we need is love and deen to over come you.. See the moon goes up and the sun comes down And its always gona go around Always comes around..round, round, round, round! When the sun rise up and the moon goes down I said its always gona go around See it with your heart, all we need is love, thats the way we start Peace to all the brothers Peace to all the sisters Peace to all the bloggers that are caught up in this system Muslims and Christians, we speaking so its time for you to listen The elbow licking youth are in deep street conditions Rebels on a mission, raised by traditions Screaming for their rights and their freedom of expression The pressure is on now and the smoke screens are burning Mind over matter, we keep moving for the purpose All my people where you at? Let me see you break the surface It's more than these prices that they put up on our purchase It's more than these lights that they cut off from our service It's all about the the lies and what goes behind the curtains For my people, who had it to the limit Salute to ''Wad Nubawi'' and everybody in it See Id like to be a human and say it like it is Rather than being a puppet and just follow what it is...what it is? See the moon goes up and the sun comes down And its always gona go around Always comes around..round, round, round, round! When the sun rise up and the moon goes down I said its always gona go around See it with your heart, all we need is love, thats the way we start She speaks through the masses braving her streets Eyes bleed tears of twenty three years of muted screams, massacared dreams stripped naked and raped by 'KOZ' men who flirt with gods power, now is the eleventh hour Sudana is on fire...ready to be unleashed! Let me paint you a picture, let me paint you a portrait..
