Dan Bull - One Love lyrics

[Intro] More syncopated drumming. I believe they call it boom-bap. It's an onomatopoeic term to describe the sound of the kick and the snare. Ideally, the kick should be like a punch to the stomach. And the snare a slap to the face. One love, and I don't mean tennis [Verse 1] I was gonna write a letter to my friend in prison Till I remembered that I haven't got a friend in prison Most of my a**ociates are well to do professionals They probably don't need to spend much time in a confessional I'll tell you what though, I better shout out Peterson [?] they're keeping under Julian Assange holed up in the emba**y And doing his hardest to prevent himself being sent to Sweden I've got a question and I'm not expecting answers But how come prison is for everyone except for bankers The feckless, reckless wa*kers who's only focus is bogusness And they still manage to go home with a bonus, bruv That sets examples for the rest of us Cos if they're not arresting them then why the heck are they arresting us? It's double standards, they're too big to fail Too big for handcuffs and too big for jail I believe the judges should never give sentences Until they've spent a bit of time in penitentiaries I feel relieved that despite my petty crimes I've never had to spend a single second doing time [Hook: Q-Tip x4] One love One love One love One love [Verse 2] I see keeping animals caged as outrageous Just to expand the range of flavours upon our plate disgust me I feel I must free my suffering sisters and brothers Who I trust treat it as no more than just meat Are resourced by the same people who are outraged to eat horse You're either seated on a wobbly moral see-saw Or you've simply never thought about it before Now I'm getting preachy, but getting preachy's easy When you see diseased creatures treated as a piece of meat Which is obviously what they are, GG But so am I, does that mean that you would eat me? Cos if you would then you're a cannibal But if you wouldn't then you're racist against animals And it's you that battery farming is actually harming Have you seen what happens? It's alarming Trapped animals bred and pumped with chemicals And fed their dead family instead of vegetables These are the graveyards where husbandry is dead to all And yet it's where your dinner comes from, it's dreadful I'm energised and angry now, better call me Red Bull But if I cared any less I'd be neglectful Yeah I'm a fluffy bunny lover, you funny bugger I'm f**ing proud of my compa**ions for others [Hook: Q-Tip x4] One love One love One love One love [Verse 3] There's different kinds of prison, those that people doing time would live in Then there's the ones inside your mind that keep you hiding, quivering Poverty's a prison and it's getting bigger It's becoming tougher for the kids, look it up and check the figures A silent seeker's bundled up inside a secret bunker Where they are deprived of each other and the people they love and live for No if's, or's, and but's, freedom's at full capacity the frickin doors are shut I used to believe in capitol punishment till I saw What the difference between getting someone back and justice is You need to be able to reverse an unjust decision Because the justice system doesn't have enough precision There's false accusations, human error, prejudice Corruption in the courts, we ought to put an end to this Who? Me? I'm scared of jury duty If I send the wrong one down someone'd surely shoot me That just wouldn't work, I'd rather be sat on my booty Watching 12 Angry Men, I'm turning cla**ic movies Reality scares me, till insanity dares me To get mad and grab my pen and pad and rap on a rare beat I see so many injustices I haven't much to give to them In terms of giving just a single f** for it, I must forgive myself I'm only human, doing what I should to keep my mind open and tune in Consumerism is so ma**ively distracting I'll battle the allure of apathy in action I'm gonna have to beat it bad some so I can concentrate On debates, important issues, and what's going on today There's so much on my plate domestically And yet it seems I'll never let the mundane get the best of me Today is just another day I get to bless the beat Yeah, today is just another day I get to bless the beat One love [Hook: Q-Tip x4] One love One love One love One love [Outtro] For everyone who wants love This is for everyone who wants love (To all my n***as locked up, for Queens Branch) It's also for Vladimir Putin, who appears to want, rather than love, global domination Whatever floats your nuclear submarine, Vlad. One love
