The Unforgiven ft. Raging Fyah | Lyrics

(Hook)
What I’ve felt
What I’ve known
Never shined through in what I’ve shown
Never be
Never see
Won’t see what might have been
What I’ve felt
What I’ve known
Never shined through in what I’ve shown
Never free
Never me
So I dub thee unforgiven

(1st Verse )

Inna the streets busy life is a chapper
While you at you work you affi stay on the upper
Those who disagreed choose the way of a Dapper
Those who blend right in choose the book and the laptop
Who have hears to hear listen to what mama said
Sit down Inna church and be quiet and pray
You taking on the wrong pledge
your life not granted
So your story echoes in my head

(2nd verse )
This is the story of a man I used to know
He never listen to his dad an mama words
He found shelter inna wrong place
Friends with a screw face
Then Killed by their wrong ways
justice no kind
it’s vision blind
Forward with the sentence
No judge can’t rewind
Rest indeed yoooh
Rest in peace bro
Rest in me

(3rd verse )
there’s still place that once you called your own
Not a war zone not a funeral home
Silent, no more music, no sound
Under the moonlight inna a Small town
Guiltiness rest on their shoulder
So for the wicked man
His days are numbered
Rest indeed
Rest In peace
Rest in me

  • Lyrics (with some explanations) from someone who grew up in Jamaica:

    Inna di streets mi see life is a choppa (hard,cuts you down)
    While you at your work you haffi stay on the hour
    Those who disagree choose the way of a dapper (gangster)
    Those who blend right in choose the book and the laptop.
    Who have ears to hear listen to what momma said
    Sit down inna church and be quiet and pray
    You're taking on the wrong pledge
    Your life nuh granted
    So your story echoes in my head

    Chorus: (slightly altered from Metallica's)

    What I've felt
    What I've known
    Never shine doin what I've shown
    Never be
    Never see
    Won't see what might have been
    What I've felt
    What I've known
    Never shined doing what I've shown
    Never free
    Never me
    So I dubbed thee unforgiven

    This is the story of a man I used to know
    He never listened to his dad and mother words
    He found shelter in a wrong place
    Friends with a screw face
    Then killed by their wrong ways
    Justice nuh kind
    Its vision blind
    Forward with the sentence no judge can rewind
    Rest indeed
    Rest in Peace
    Rest in me

    (Chorus)

    (Guitar Interlude)

    There's still a place that once you call your own
    Not a white zone
    Not a funeral home
    Silence! No more music nuh sound
    Under the moonlight in a small town
    Guilty-ness rest on their shoulders
    So for the wicked man, his days are numbered!
    Rest indeed yeeeahhh!
    Rest in me!

    What I've felt
    I've known

    Never free
    Never me

    (Chorus)
