Damian Marley Drops more knowledge on his joint album with Nas “Distant Relatives”….
The song is called “Patience” Quick summary of the quote from (my interpretation) for those who may not fully grasp it.
He is basically saying we live in a world in which scientists think the know it all but they still can’t figure out the full meanings of the Egyptian Hieroglyphs . We have enough technology to fly to the moon but they can’t figure out a way to feed starving children? People are so distracted and occupied with other things that they neglect the youth. The youth is our future and it’s very important we invest in them.
“Some of the smartest dummies Can’t read the language of Egyptian mummies An’ a fly go a moon And can’t find food for the starving tummies Pay no mind to the youths Cause it’s not like the future depends on it But save the animals in the zoo Cause the chimpanzee dem a make big money This is how the media pillages On the TV the picture is Savages in villages And the scientist still can’t explain the pyramids, huh Evangelists making a living on the videos of ribs of the little kids Stereotyping the image of the images And this is what the image is” ~~Damian Marley
