Song Description

The song ask a question for all to answer, not only the robbers and murderers, but every man has the right to decide his destiny, and in his judgment, there is no partiality. What do you rather,GUN OR LIFE, as the bible states,"He who lives by the sword, shall die by it" We need to promote life, not guns!

Story Behind the Song

This song was created from a true story. I neighbor of the artist, was involved with illegal gun and committed gun crimes. The artist beckoned to him to change his way of living, but he ignored the plea of the artiste, each time he was approached. He was killed by Police one evening, after he and friends robbed a juice van. The artiste felt real bad, after making so many attempt, to change his neighbor, and thought if he had a more aggressive approach, his life would have change. It was then de decided, to use this life time example, to educate others, not to be involved with illegal guns or commit crimes, because the consequences, may be your life.

Lyrics

"Gun Or Life" by Joshua

Intro- Yeah man a Joshua a lead out you know
Righteousness to the people, you see whey me a sey
A Life we want, no more gun you know
Selassie I
Cho-Tell me if a de, Gun dem or a life uno prefer
Or uno love fe see de coffin, and de stretcher ah
I know that things can be better
Cho-Tell me if a de, Gun dem or a life uno prefer
Or uno love fe see de coffin, and de stretcher ah
I know that things can be better
1. A de truth, What about the looting and the shoot
Everyday someone get execute yow
So what about the woman and the youth
Killing of the father, You no memba de root
And when me talk , Uno ready fe dispute
A just blood a run, a pure blood a run
It a gwan long time from in a de western region
Peace treaty sign dem no overstand
U no see a total confusion
Cho-Tell me if a de, Gun dem or a life uno prefer
Or uno love fe see de coffin, and de stretcher ah
I know that things can be better
Cho-Tell me if a de, Gun dem or a life uno prefer
Or uno love fe see de coffin, and de stretcher ah
I know that things can be better
2. Cause every time war broke out
A innocent people dead
If people na hole up dem head yow
This a no flinstone barney nor fred
Me see sey dis a judgment it red yow
My equal right where is my justice
And everytime me talk, you come dis
Where is my equal rights, where is my justice
And I sey peace treaty sign and dem neva did make it
King Selassie I a go shake it
Cho-Tell me if a de, Gun dem or a life uno prefer
Or uno love fe see de coffin, and de stretcher ah
I know that things can be better
Cho-Tell me if a de, Gun dem or a life uno prefer
Or uno love fe see de coffin, and de stretcher ah
I know that things can be better
3. Cause in a de ghetto whey de youths dem voice a echo
Dem need strength, dem need a brighter tomorrow
Tired a de pain, tired a de sorrow
Tired a de guns bombs dem and all de arrow
Mama and papa, want a brighter tomorrow
All over the world them word sound a echo
A rastafari pickney him sey so
Cho-Tell me if a de, Gun dem or a life uno prefer
Or uno love fe see de coffin, and de stretcher ah
I know that things can be better
Cho-Tell me if a de, Gun dem or a life uno prefer
Or uno love fe see de coffin, and de stretcher ah
I know that things can be better
