"Pull Up The People" as written by Mathangi Arulpragasam, Paul Byrne and David James Andrew Taylor....
Pull up the people
Pull up the poor

Slang tang
That's the that m.i.a. thing
I got the bombs to make you blow
I got the beats to make you bang bang bang

Yeah me got god, and me got you
Everyday thinkin' bout how me get through
Everything I own is on i.o.u.
But I'm here bringing y'all something new

You no like the people
They no like you
Then they go set it off with a big boom
Every gun in a battle is a son and daughter too
Why you want to talk about who done who?
What you want to talk about?

Slang tang
That's the that m.i.a. thang
I got the bombs to make you blow
I got th ebeats to make you bang bang bang

Pull up the people, pull up the poor

I'm a fighter, fighter god
I'm a soldier on that road
I'm a fighter, a nice nice fighter
I'm a soldier on that road

Bring me the reaper
Bring me a lawyer
I'll fight I'll take em on
You treat me like a killer
I ain't never hate ya
I'm a soldier on that road

I'm a fighter, fighter god
I'm a soldier on that road
I'm a fighter, a nice nice fighter
I'm a soldier on that road

    I also think it's about relief through music and she seems to be talking about what effect war has had on her life.

    General Commenti think this her best song, it's so political.
    i love the line "you no like the people. they no like you. then they go set it off with a big boom. every gun in a battle is a son and daughter too."
    its a purely brilliant reference to the stupidity of war
