    "Jericho [For the Consciousness of the Nation]" Lyrics

    Coldcut feat. Asian Dub Foundation

    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
