Lyric "Equal Rights"

[Verse 1]
Everyone is crying out for peace, yes
None is crying out for justice
Everyone is crying out for peace, yes
None is crying out for justice

[Hook]
I don't want no peace
I need equal rights and justice
I need equal rights and justice
I need equal rights and justice
Got to get it
Equal rights and justice

[Verse 2]
Everybody want to go to heaven
But nobody want to die (father of Jesus)
Everybody want to go to up to heaven
But none o them, none o them want to die

[Hook]
I don't want no peace
I man need equal rights and justice
I got to get it
Equal rights and justice
I really need it
Equal rights and justice
Just give me my share
Equal rights and justice

[Verse 3]
What is due to Caesar
You better give it on to Caesar
And what belong to I and I
You better, you better give it up to I

[Hook]
Cause I don't want no peace
I need equal rights and justice
I need equal rights and justice
I got to get it
Equal rights and justice
I'm fighting for it
Equal rights and justice

[Verse 4]
Everyone headed for the top
But tell me how far is it from the bottom
Nobody knows but
Everybody fighting to reach the top
How far is it from the bottom

[Hook]
I don't want no peace
I want equal rights and justice
I need equal rights and justice
I got to get it
Equal rights and justice
I really need it
Equal rights and justice

[Verse 5]
Everyone is talking about crime
Tell me who are the criminals?
I said everybody's talking about crime, crime
Tell me who, who are the criminals?
I really don't see them

[Hook]
I don't want no peace
I need equal rights and justice
Got to get equal rights and justice
And there'll be no crime
Equal rights and justice
There'll be no criminals
Equal rights and justice
Everyone is fighting for
Equal rights and justice
Palestine is fighting for
Equal rights and justice
Down in Angola
Equal rights and justice
Down in Botswana
Equal rights and justice
Down in Zimbabwe
Equal rights and justice
Down in Rhodesia
Equal rights and justice
Right here in Jamaica
Equal rights and justice
