Dem watching

Di heroes dem inna shock
Fi kno se dem fight fi uplift
Di state of the island
An wi tek time a mash it up
Nuh bisness wid others
As long as wii criss
Dem crying

Di heroes dem lookin
Dem wondering wat a gwaan
If a ongle dem alone
Strong, brave and smart
An waan fi si betta come
Fi uplift dem country
Dem wondering

Di heroes dem lookin
Fi a man, a woman
A boy or a girl
Dat smart and brave
Fi step forward
An du di right thing
Dem searching

That was deep. Makes you wonder what they would say if we met them face to face.
