Peter Tosh - Equal Rights Lyrics




Everyone is crying out for peace, yes,
None is crying out for justice.

I don't want no peace,
I need equal rights and justice.
I need equal rights and justice.
I need equal rights and justice.
Got to get it! Equal rights and justice.

Everybody want to go to heaven
But nobody want to die.
Everybody want to go up to heaven
But none o' them, none o' them, want to die.

I don't want no peace,
I man need equal rights and justice.
I've got to get it! Equal rights and justice.
I really need it! Equal rights and justice.
Just give me my share! Equal rights and justice.

What is due to Caesar
You better give it on to Caesar.
And what belong to I and I
You better, you better, give it up to I.

Cause I don't want no peace,
I need equal rights and justice.
I need equal rights and justice.
I've got to get it! Equal rights and justice.
I'm fighting for it! Equal rights and justice.

Everyone heading for the top
But tell me how far is it from the bottom?
Nobody knows but
Everybody fighting to reach the top
How far is it from the bottom?

Everyone is talking about crime,
Tell me who are the criminals?
I said everybody's talking about crime, crime,
Tell me who, who are the criminals?
I really don't see them!

Equal rights and justice. And there'd be no crime!
Equal rights and justice. There be no criminals!
Equal rights and justice.
Everyone is fighting for equal rights and justice.
Palestine is fighting for equal rights and justice.
Down in Angola. Equal rights and justice.
Down in Botswana. Equal rights and justice.
Down in Zimbabwe. Equal rights and justice.
Down in Rhodesia. Equal rights and justice.
Right here in Jamaica. Equal rights and justice.

  19. Stéph' J.L.

    I feel that my message of November 11, 2019 was misunderstood by morons, as always. What I wanted lately is that Peter Tosh express a very spiritual but also very general vision of 'death' (or sacrifice) that is parading. I only have to give a few things. WE DO NOT HAVE ALL THE SAME LEVELS OF SPIRITUALITY. In any case, congratulations to Peter Tosh.

  20. Monique Robinson

  22. Keith Fiedtkou

    RIGHT NOW IM
    LISTENING TO PETER TOSH AND THE MUSIC IS TOUCHING MY SPIRIT TRULY INSPIRING

  23. Stéph' J.L.

    For me, the promise of paradise does not necessarily depend on the "sacrifices" that will be made to be part of it, but equally, the credibility (love and obedience, forgiveness and humility, share as well as the honesty) that we have vis-à-vis this promise that made us Jesus Christ.

    Everybody is crying out for peace but nobody is crying out for justice. Everybaddy weh tink seh dem a psychiatrist when dem ah barely counsellah ah cry out fi peace wid bumbohole weh ah declare war gainst wi every minute. When they hold back things, like the air-to-maker, which was made in their territory, that is declaration of war because they want us to waste away by starvation, dehydration, and lack of cleanliness and sanitation. When they shit in the water until dangerous viruses like necrotizing fasciitis, which is a dangerous type of Ebola, if not the most dangerous type of Ebola, and then turning around and blaming it on other countries, that is a declaration of war. When they hold back important medical supplies, such as canned and bottled oxygen, and important information that not even cures them, but treats the diseases, that is a declaration of war by the States. A war dem waah! A war dem bumboclaat waah! Suh no bumbopussyrhaashole weh a tek up fi dem every fucking minute till dem all cross ovah yah an tief everyting, including wi elecshun dem, cyaah tell mi nutten, yuh nuh! Dem cyaah bumboclaat tell me nutten! Dem did do suh already when mi did guh a school wid dem an dem tell mi nuh fi hit dem, fight dem, shout afta dem or cuss badwud afta dem when dem do dem sneaky evilousness! But when dem force mi nuh fi do dem suhum deh den more dangerous tings happen dan me ah cuss badwud afta dem an ah lick dem rhaasclaat dung wid suhum from mi physical hand. Imagine, dem can be part ah one bumboclaat social experiment weh allow dem fi pretend fi be human an fi do tings like human being suh dem can lie, cheat, an scam worse dan before an get maddahrah dan before. Cause ah cyaah maddah, a mus' maddahrah! Dat's why people cyaah live nuh simple life again! Dem mek tings very complicated when dem boost dem up an ah let dem look good an mek dem pretend fi wuk an inna dem right mind inna public but dem mad like nutten inna private.

    The reason why our lives they are so rough
    Because the system is unjust
    And the reason why the system is unjust
    Because it's not made for us

    Many they flight for equal rights, no end in sight
    Some hold the power so tight, and live a life that's nice
    Who pays the price ?

    You've got to fight, with all your might for what is right
    It is your life, you have a choice you've got a voice

    No justice no peace if equal rights
    and justice is what you seek
    No justice no peace the power to the

    people they must be released.

    If Christians think there's a place called heaven then if they fall sick they shouldn't go to hospital at all so as to go to heaven quickly. Highest mental slavery of all time is religion.

  79. Oliver Uja

    Peter Tosh was a complete entertainer and prophetic in his songs.His style of delivery was sultry. I think he had an edge over Bob Marley but Marley was sided by the Western capitalists media and marketing agents solely for their selfish interests of making more money. This is why they greatly attempted to underrate, undermine and relegate Peter Tosh to the background, But today, history has placed Tosh where he rightly belongs.
