For the consciousness of the nation
The sounds of the Asian dub foundation:

The music we make it cuts across borders
We never make music to someone else's orders
Plenty of issues on the agenda
If you want to lend a helping hand
You're always told to shut up and dance
But you have to change this-take a chance
Turn the tables,
We know you're able
Don't just consume
Make your own tune.

The music, we use it
We're making a stand
I wouldn't call this a green and pleasant land
A conscious response is what we demand
Challenge the system and those in command
Express your opinion
It's your domain
If you fail to do this you are partly to blame
My heart is beating
No retreat
The battle continues
We'll suffer no defeat
This war you've been waging
It's time we were raging
In our minds and on the streets
Sample this it's an education
The sounds of the Asian dub foundation

Look around you, yeah
Open your mind
Check it out, tell me what you find
Here to document a situation
The sounds of the Asian dub foundation
Hope and glory
A myth of the Tories
We're here to tell you a different story

Here to redress the situation
The sounds of the Asian dub foundation

A rapper I may be but packaged I'm not
I'll slip through the noose before you tie the knot
This work in progress not slick but rough
Breaking all records twelve inches ain't enough
Sample this
It's an education
The sounds of the original, the original 

We ain't ethnic, exotic or eclectic
The only 'e' we use is electric
An Asian background that's what's reflected
But this militant vibe ain't what you expected
With your liberal minds you patronize our culture
Scanning the surface like vultures
With your tourist mentality
We're still the natives
You multicultural but we're anti-racist
We ain't ethnic, exotic or eclectic
The only 'e' we use is electric

And we cry
Them coulda never escape
Disya judgement
