Livin in a time, pure surveillance the eye them just watch me, watch me
Livin in a time, you mi con’t move you without them a track mi, track mi
Livin in a time, you them try cop mi and dem try trap mi, trap mi
Livin in a time them set out a net and like a fish them try catch mi, catch mi

The Babylon dem ask mi yo where I’m going yo
Don’t worry where I’m going yo Mr. officer
I got no time I got things to do so right away, mi a tell you mi no got no time for you Yah, ’Cause dem a talk bout dem a the law, dem a no law dem want come stop mi nah Deh pan mi bike and mi bust a left mi bust a left a mi dem a come and try perplex

Police state, Police city, Police world, oh what a pity
They mind my business while dem noh mind fi dem own you know hear mi tone
Police state, Police city, Police world, oh what a pity
They want to spy on me while I’m talking on my phone

Say dem don’t trust mi but mi don’t trust them
Say dem ready fi bust mi but mi but mi a go bust dem
Say dem no trust mi but mi no trust them
Say dem ready fi bust mi but mi a go bust them
Secret agent them wanna stop my shine, want tap mi line, nah drop no dime
The city limits every perimeter full up a crime,
In it to win it, can’t pin point mi every time

Lay down the law another youth is dying, woe ay!
Lay down the law another mother is crying, she’s crying
Lay down the law another youth is dying, woe ay!
Lay down the law never stop I from shining, from shining

Livin in a time, pure surveillance the eye them just watch me, watch me
Livin in a time, you mi con’t move you without them a track mi, track mi
Livin in a time, you them try rope mi and dem try trap mi, trap mi
Livin in a time them set out a net and like a fish them try catch mi, catch mi

Police state, Police city, Police world oh what a pity
They mind my business while dem noh mind fi dem own you know hear mi tone
Police state, Police city, Police world oh what a pity
They want fi challenge me when we a sleep inna mi home
Focus pan mi life thru internet, all have satellite
A watch the whole planet but goddamit
What dem get from it,
Is like them want mi panic

And if mi call mi brother Jeff or mi cousin Janet,
By the time mi connect them listenin pan it,
Whether car, truck or bike or you van it, move wise them boys will stash a bug pan it,
(Then mi gusso then)

Lay down the law another youth is dying, woe ay!
Lay down the law another mother is crying, she’s crying
Lay down the law another youth is dying, woe ay!
Lay down the law never stop I from shining, from shining

Police state, Police city, Police world, oh what a pity
Police state, Police city, Police world, oh what a pity
Police state, Police city, Police world, oh what a pity
