SNAKES IN THE GRASS...THEY KNOW NOT GOD


Every time you meet the public
You get scared and you start to panic
Who got a gun, a who got a bomb
Who got a knife, who's gonna lose their life?

So-called leaders aide with deceitful faces
Corruption in a high place, your hands full with bribes
Mouth pours out lies, yeah
'Cause of all oppression now running for protection

Bodyguard, I wouldn't like your job
Snakes in the grass say they know not God
Polytricksters drinking human blood
Concrete heart can hold no love

I just can't sorry for the bodyguard
Bullet-proof vest strap to your chest
Under your collar is getting hot
Who got a gun, who got a bomb
Who got a knife, who's gonna lose their life?

Bodyguard, I wouldn't like your job
Snakes in the grass they know not God
Polytricksters drinking human blood
Concrete heart can hold no love

Bodyguard, I wouldn't like your job
Snakes in the grass says they know not God
Polytricksters drinking human blood
Concrete heart can hold no love

Hey, hey, don't feel no way
I just can't sorry for the bodyguard
Who got a gun, who got a bomb
Who got a knife, who's gonna lose their life?

Bodyguard, I wouldn't like your job
Snakes in the grass they know not God
Polytricksters drinking human blood
Concrete heart can hold no love

Bodyguard, I wouldn't like your job
Snakes in the grass says they know not God
Polytricksters drinking human blood
Concrete heart I say can hold no love

Watch it all you, presidents
Heads of government
(Who's gonna lose their lives?)
Mash down parliaments

I just can't sorry for the bodyguard
(Who's gonna lose their lives?)
I just can't sorry for the bodyguard
(Who's gonna lose their lives?)
All that fretting, all that checking
(Who's gonna lose their lives?)
All that searching for assassin'


  1. I usually try to control my comments when playing in the Jungle, but yesterday's irreverent handling of Santa Marian Kamalen for what appeared to be in the interest of "securing" the Archbishop boiled my blood beyond measure. In my nearly 15-year history of attending the processions from beginning to end, I've never seen both the Archbishop and Santa Maria handled so unbecoming of the occasion to honor our island's patroness. Santa Marian Kamalen, herself, would have protected him. "O ye, of little faith."

    To the gentlemen in black polos, khaki-pants, dark shades (if you're reading) - you ought to be commended in carrying out the whisper instructions of Msgr. David to protect the Archbishop (and Msgr. David, of course). I'm sure you made it a personal mission and probably felt good that you got to be pretend bodyguards for the day...but we all know that you have regular day jobs. Stick to those as I'm for certain you do them well. On the one day when Santa Marian Kamalen and the Archbishop should be most accessible and visible - let them be. There was absolutely NO credible AND identifiable threat to his safety, danger to the statue, or those surrounding. If there were, those whose real job it is to enforce and protect would have been there. Instead, your actions, perhaps executed with good intention, turned out to be a distraction and an insult to view and be in communion with Santa Maria.

    Those days of plexi-glass shields and policemen protecting the statue are long gone. Next year, put your energy watching Fr. Adrian. Remember, under his administration, Santa Marian was lost twice.

    Not even Pope Francis expects body guards to protect him. In fact he runs away from them. Because he has faith.
