about

After receiving solid support for their last release, We Nah Got No Money (But We Got Love), from the likes of David Rodigan and Toddla T on BBC Radio1, 1xtra and blogs and websites including Reggaeville (Germany) and Irie Mag (USA), Rebel Control return in a more militant mood with their new single - Don't Let Them Fool Ya ...
The song is a sincere observation of an unequal world serving only to "make more money for the rich man" and urging the listener to open their eyes and stand up to the system.
This track sees a rebellious and articulate Rebel Control digging deep to make both meaningful and accessible music. Vocalist Andy Baron sings out the truth as Richie Concrete drops a heavy bass line and leads the band on a tough funky reggae jam, all given a tasty dubwise mix with producer Graham "Grammo" Pilgrim at the controls.

lyrics

The babylon system not working still … not working

Dark forces at work they don't care who they hurt 
drop you deep in the dirt if you stand in their way 
Just understand they got the power in their hands and they’ve only one plan
more money for the rich man yeah

Behind the scenes behind all of those screens 
you’ll see only one scheme to make more money for the rich man
Nah conspiracy they just use you and me it’s the new slavery 
to make more money for the rich man yeah

More money for the rich man yeah

Listen up !

Never let never let babylon babylon fool ya nah 
Never let never let babylon babylon rule ya nah 
Them confuse and them use ya them just hold ya down
Never let never let babylon babylon fool ya nah  

Open your eyes and you'll soon realise 
it’s so hard to survive without playing their game 
Just understand we're all part of their plan
and it's a worldwide scam  

Make more money for the rich man yeah     

This is the start of it it's just a part of it 
rolling it up on a global scale
With message from the top saying saying We’re never gonna stop 
til we squeeze every drop out of the poor for the rich man yeah

Make more money for the rich man yeah     

Listen up

Never let never let babylon babylon fool ya nah 
Never let never let babylon babylon rule ya nah 
Them confuse and them use ya them just hold ya down
Never let never let babylon babylon fool ya nah  

Listen up !
Confusion is no excuse for collusion 
Educate yourself coz we must find some solution 
Turn off your tv and don’t believe the pollution 
Turn off your tv and start to think revolution 

The babylon system not working still

It's time to talk about the babylon system
a system not working
A few have so much
and too many have nothing ...

Never let never let babylon babylon fool ya nah 
Never let never let babylon babylon rule ya nah 
Them confuse and them use ya them just hold ya down
Never let never let babylon babylon fool ya nah  

Stand up to the system ya'll
