"Your Your (198)" - Song lyrics (translator):

You are the words you speak
so be cautious as you walk the streets …

Your GUARDS
be e’ very conscientious
as to why - where - when and to whom
you surrender ‘THEM’
if at all - never
drop a GUARD to even the closest of friend
as it is they who are
within reach to bewilder your faith
measure your friends by - your both
wants and needs - thus
who has the tolerance to do without.
Yuh si lonilenss - som’times a’yuh best friend ..!

Your TRUST
careful as to
why and for what cause and affect
you exercise - ‘IT’
your TRUST should first be of self - to
elude the phobias breathing regression
thus, the fairy tales must first prove themselves
before you dare knock on TRUST doors
therewith you surprise your PRIDE
with disparaging WORDS.

Your FAITH
be prudent in giving ‘IT’ - and
only when absolutely abiding
an’ even then as a last resort
with PRIDE intact and on your WORDS
your FAITH will leave you vulnerable
so exercise ‘IT’ cautiously - giving
your TRUST space to be exercised
as the things you believe - in
must be within reach and of your control.

Your mannerism - a reflection of the things you eat
suh - carefully choose with whom you feast …

Your PRIDE
implant vigilance and
never expose - never smear - never disgrace
no matter the importance - NEVER
be without your PRIDE
so what is seen in/as character
is a positive radiance
of the/your inner karma - noting
it’s your friends gossips - that
most tarnish your PRIDE to weight your TRUST.

Your WORD
give ‘IT’ with PRIDE
and attitudinize by ‘IT’
with your -- Life
stand by your WORD with all might
so your FAITH is not smeared
as it’s easy to lose TRUST
when the GUARD is broken
realize that SPEECH is not an automatic reflex
thus the responsibility is duly yours
when WORDS hurt.

You are your own ... your
don’t insult nor pulverize “self-centerdness”
by hanging with a friend who
has nothing worthwhile
to give your needs
as your enemy is the someone who
refuses to give in - into the wants
you both claim to need
friendship is truly a selfish act - least
envy - jealousy and greed wouldn’t be indulgences.

Your fear of an enemy
is only because
you are in refusal of the space
forged between you
so you waste the energy
to be on GUARD
waste the energy
of being - on GUARD
as loosing a friend - there goes secrets to the wind.

And as you drop a GUARD
remember faith is a belief
in that - that cannot be proven
so do you TRUST the actions
of an enemy or the smile of the friend
close enough to know your weakness
do take time - examine your life without
and what makes and how different
is a presumed enemy.

Your GUARDS - your TRUST
your FAITH - your PRIDE - your WORD
emotions based on interactions with passersby
so chose your company
selectively and appropriately
as the devil does dwell within ... yes
ever question why the need
to go seek - a “God”
to go seekin’ - a “God” - note
hallelujahs are loudest amongst company
parading whose fear - distrust and self-doubt.

Your GUARDS
be e’ very conscientious
as to why - where
when and to whom
you surrender ‘THEM’
your TRUST
careful as to
why and for what cause and affect
you exercise - ‘IT’
your FAITH
be prudent in giving ‘IT’ - and
only when absolutely abiding
your PRIDE
implant vigilance and
never expose - never smear - never disgrace
your WORD
give ‘IT’ with PRIDE
and attitudinize by ‘IT’
with your - Life
with your - Life
your - Life. - Seen ..!
