JOE SHIGMA – CRISES
Crisis, crisis (My nation is)
Crisis, crisis (My country there is)
I saw the video, rest in peace Ropvil
As this instrumental play I wonder how his family feel
Watching YouTube videos of people slaughtered make me ill
They press the knife against their neck I watch em squeal, blood spill
Oh God… how did we came to this?
Coffins, orphans our loved ones we will miss
Wailings, mass burials, sirens in the silence
Islam Christianity none of this belief teach us violence
So how come you take a life and then you back it with religion?
How did you became this beast? Tell me what influence your decision?
Soldiers, police outnumbered masses need some guns in rotation
Am doubting the government can protect us what is wrong with this nation?
All I can hear in the place of worship is peace my people please
This people want us dead buy and load up your pistle please
If is certain that I will die, I will take some of them with me at least
They don’t give a damn about us I think the government is smoking weed
If not then how come we die like flies with no one to intercede
Rest in peace to ocean someone’s is lying breathless
These streets are no longer safe, my people are just helpless
They using us for politics media is feeding us with lies
I swear some of this politicians are just devils in disguise
Through my song I will tell you the truth even if they will take my life
Like Sarowiwa; hang me or bleed me with a knife
Let it be that my people are free even if it cost my life
I shed tears in the north herdsmen attack us with army guns
Multiple shots at the innocent hustling to cluster funds
My cousin complaining last week we need protection from police
No evidence of our crime they harass us while we sitting down in peace
One day I hope to wake up to a new Naija where people live
In peace and harmony, we will achieve it I believe
Come listen to my truest thoughts I made them while in grief
I feel one day the people will rise against the system in a brief
There was a time in Nigeria when insecurity was mostly synonymous to terrorism,
Largely as a result of insurgency in the north east region of the country and the question is;
What is being done to stop this menace? Not just in the states but in other part of the country.
What do you think about this song?
We want to hear from you all.
