See this here
This is crucial

This is an emergency
They shot down in the door
They did it cause they paid a fee
Now there's nothing to die for
All the kids from miles around
Are fools in paradise
Don't know about the firing sound
So this scene isn't I saw

Come in bat me fly away
Ja ja come and Zoe I like see another day
All I think about if I were just to run away
Will I come back to love you now?

I don't want to change the world
I only want to stop pretending

What you say? Come again
What you say? Come again now

Nothing left to the little bird
I only hope you're all ascending high

What you say? Come again
What you say? Come again now

All around my home town
They try to chop me down
But the truth shall not forsake me
Take me up to higher grounds

And ooohh-hoooo
You're the light when the feeling is dark
You're pretending the game is a rule
Because you're born and you're dying my heart

I don't want to change the world
I only want to stop pretending

What you say? Come again
What you say? Come again now

I will never let you down
I'll be right here beside you, hanging around
So if you think you let me down
You leave me here in silence, without a sound

Change words
Ch-change verse
We change verbs

Cause why would I change when there's no one to play the time?

    General CommentWell, tis song is about our "crazy" WORLD. And how bad it is. He wants the world to change. I personally think that K-OS is a great artist. And has a unique sound. But to me it seems like hes some hotshot from Canada and listens to Reggae. So he base his sound from other Reggae artist. Jaja? Since when do them Canada people praise Jaja? Yeah... but anyway. Maybe I don't know well about Jaja. And maybe i don't know about Canadians but K-OS seems a little mircowaved don't cha think? Don't get me wrong... K-os is cool but he just isn't real. SORRY!

    General CommentActually, Canada has a very large immigrant population, particularly from Jamaica, particularly in the Toronto area. Something like 30% of Canadians are descendants of some group other than the English or French. I don't know anything about K-os, but 10 seconds on the 'Net led me to believe he or his parents are from Jamaica. So no, it doesn't seem that he's some "poser" or wannabe reggae artist. He's clearly influenced by his place of origin and the large Jamaican community in Canada.

    General CommentBabypinka, I suggest you do a little more listening to k-os. He isn't just reggae, and he's certainly not 'microwaved'. I have, honestly, no clue where you got that from.

    General Commentfirst of all baby, people from anywhere can worship "Jah".
    Just not lest you be judged yourself.

    Jah is just a shortening of Jehovah, which is translation of the pronunciation of YHWH, which is not meant to be pronounced anyway... YHWH being the name of the Judean(and therefore christian and muslim god)

    General Commentfor those wondering, one of k-os' parents is from trinidad and he has spent part of his youth there. hence, jah-jah. he has a lot of reggae roots because of this, and he has been exposed to many forms of music and takes traits from many of these influences and adds them to his own music. making his own style of creatively eclectic music, which makes him more HIP-HIP than anything else (even though he does sing well).

    General CommentFirst of all his family is from trinidad. Second of all stop Jah (or in this case jaja) is just a shortened form of Jehovah, which is in turn the pronunciation of YHWH, the sacred name of God in judaism and therefore in christianity. You call someone fake because they speak about a god which you deny due to lack of knowledge.

    General Commentisn't it "eyesore" instead of "ice haul?" I would think that makes more sense.
