LYRICS

Nigeria, fertile land of milk and honey
Smiley faces though they suffer it’s not funny
The ones who really laughing
Are basking in laundered money
Rubbing on their bloated tummies
Scratching double chins, steady scheming like its a normal thing
They play hard when they go for the win
While the common man left in the dark he suffering
Blood pressure buffering, slapping under the sun
Skin frying ’til he’s done, smoke affecting his lungs
Perspiring still not biting his tongue
Having barbershop discussions how the country should be run
Social critics lobotomized mentally numb
Police turn a blind eye once you feed ’em some crumbs
We dealing with misappropriation of funds
Crazy sums up to 20 bill
Where is the love, my only consolation, man no be God
Sounds strange when you brag about your chain
And a few states away people are getting slayed
Bodies laying in the northeast sands
Blood stains on the hands of Boko Haram
But on the flip side, y’all be turning up going H.A.M
Buying out the bar dancing to another party jam
If you gave a damn you will notice the paradigm-shifting
Morale of the Army is dipping, I guess it needs a lifting
My minds drifting when I’m all alone
They need some modern weapons
Can’t win a war with sticks and stone
It’s like a man with a bread knife in a pistol zone
So they watch missiles whistle past and rip through homes
Once again the government is under criticism
The poor suffering from the aftermath of bad decisions
Soldiers dropping like flies in suicidal missions
Salute the fallen heroes, switch off your television
In my country
It’s time for us to face reality
My country
It’s hard to see the possibility
In my country
If you want to see a brighter day
My country
Only us can make our own way.
