AS TIME GOES ON Lyrics

by Sean Paul

Yeah, yeah, wow, wow, wow
Will we ever care?
(Will we ever care?)
And will we ever share?
(Will we ever share?)
Yow, yow

You who seh rule de people
Say don't it so deceiful
Yes, year to year it's clear to de youths
Dat yuh don't care

Top dollar all you wanna is thief it
Everybody know it ain't no secret
Ammunition and gun
Dat's all yuh really wanna share

I see di blood is on your hand
I see di youths don't understand
It's goin' nowhere

'Round and 'round in a circle
Politics tactics, nah, go work cauh
Too much blood gotta spill pon Earth
Man is dying everywhere

As time goes on
When will we live together?
Time goes on
And one seem so unclever

As time goes on
Will we ever get along?
When will we live as one
As time goes on?
When will we ever care?

Everybody got good and evil
Tek a look inna yourself people
Positive, negative
Which one will yuh manifest?

Everybody wah de same ting down deh
Nobody don't wanna live in a dismay
Everybody's fighting
To achieve their happiness

Some man wah rich and famous
Den dem get it switched and blame us
I wish dat those could see their emptiness

'Round and 'round in a circle
Selfishness just nah go work cauh
Too much blood gotta spill pon Earth
Man is dying everywhere

As time goes on
When will we live together?
Time goes on
And one seem so unclever

As time goes on
Will we ever get along?
When will we live as one
As time goes on?
And will we ever care?

Will we ever care?
(Will we ever)
Will we ever share?
(Will we ever share?)
End is drawing near
(End is drawing near)
Feel it in di air

Muslim and Christian
Buddhist and Hindu
Rastafarai and Jew
Will we ever share one God?

Blood's on de creeps
All these politricks man
P and p, everyday lp
Will wi ever care about life?

When de blood is on your hand
And di youths don't understand
It's goin' nowhere

'Round and 'round in a circle
Blood spilling just nah go work cauh
Too much man just a dead pon Earth
Man is dying everywhere

As time goes on
When will we live together?
Time goes on
And one seem so unclever

As time goes on
Will we ever get along?
When will we live as one
As time goes on?
When will we ever care?

(Will we ever care?)
When will we ever share?
(Will we ever share?)
When will we ever care?

(Will we ever care?)
When will we ever share?
(Will we ever share?)
When will we ever fear God

As time goes on
When will we live together?
Time goes on
When one seem so unclever

As time goes on
Will we ever get along?
When will we live as one
As time goes on?
When will we ever care?

Seh the end is drawing near
When will we ever fear
Seh di end is drawing near
When will we ever fear

Y me gusta tanto cuando se pega pega
Y me guaya guaya
Y se pega pega
Cuando le sueltan el dembow

So before leavin', yo it's a wise man I'm repeatin'
Two wrongs don't make a right, I believe in it makes a even

In 1965 Vietnam seemed like just another foreign war but it wasn't
It was different in many ways, as so were tose that did the fighting
In World War II the average age of the combat soldier was 26
In Vietnam he was 19
In-in-in Vietnam he was 19

The shooting and fighting of the past two weeks continued today
25 miles west of Saigon
I really wasn't sure what was going on

Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

In Vietnam the combat soldier typically served
A twelve month tour of duty
But was exposed to hostile fire almost everyday
Ni-ni-ni 19, Ni-ni-ni 19

Hundreds of thousands of men who saw heavy combat
In Vietnam were arrested since discharge
Their arrest rate is almost twice that of non-veterans of the same age
There are no accurate figures of how many of these men
Have been incarcerated

But a Veterans Administration study
Concludes that the greater of vets
Exposure to combat could more likely affect his chances
Of being arrested or convicted

This is one legacy of the Vietnam War

All those who remember the war
They won't forget what they've seen
Destruction of men in their prime
Whose average was 19

De-de-destruction
De-de-destruction
War, war

De-de-destruction, wa, wa, war, wa, war, war
De-de-destruction
War, war

After World War II the men came home together on troop ships
But the Vietnam vet often arrived home within 48 hours of jungle combat
Perhaps the most dramatic difference between
World War II and Vietnam was coming home
None of them received a hero's welcome

None of them received a heroes welcome, none of them, none of them
Ne-ne-ne, ne-ne-ne, none of them, none of them, none of them
None of them received a hero's welcome
None of them received a hero's welcome

According to a Veteran's Administration study
Half of the Vietnam combat veterans suffered from what
Psychiatrists call
Post-Traumatic-Stress-Disorder

Many vets complain of alienation, rage or guilt
Some succumb to suicidal thoughts
Eight to ten years after coming home
Almost eight hundred thousand men are still fighting the Vietnam War

De-de-destruction
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni19 19
19, 19, 19, 19
Ni-ni-ni 19, 19, ni-19 19
19, 19, 19, 19

When we came back it was different, everybody wants to know
"How'd it happened to those guys over there?
There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
We did what we had to do

There's gotta be something wrong somewhere
People wanted us to be ashamed of what it made us
Dad had no idea what he went to fight and he is now
All we want to do is come home

All we want to do is come home
What did we do it for?
All we want to do is come home
Was it worth it

I've done everything I canAll the people that I see I will never understandIf I find a way to change, if I step into the lightThen I'll never be the same, and it all will fade to whiteEver on and on I continue circlingWith nothing but my hate in a carousel of agony
