Here comes something from the Lion’s Den ‘archives’.
It was 2013 at a recording session in the Lion's Den studio, when Kali Green voiced "Serpent Behind A Curtain" - some reality lyrics about the bad dealings surrounding us - a warning to better 'Watch What Dem Do'.
A little later the project was taken to Aldubb's Planet Earth Studio to add some sweet horn melodies with Mathieu (trumpet) and Claudio (sax), two great players of instruments from Berlin, Germany.
The project was then sent to Leicester, UK, for some special remix treatment from the dub veteran Vibronics.
Here are four tuff dub cuts and an instrumental version out of his studio to be played on a heavyweight Sound System...

Kali Green - Serpent Behind A Curtain
"inna mist of a foggy jungle
babylon haffi be exposed
kali garten a pon the microphone

watch what dem do behind a curtain
babylon a worship a serpent
watch what dem do behind a curtain
a wicked babylon dem a worship a serpent

for a long time ya mi saw dem greedy
for the power and the fame dem sell their soul to their demon
so more blood a shed cause dem heart turn evil
cold blooded figure with a mind fi kill yu
politicians dem blind the youth and conquer
keep dem mind busy with a daily soapyopra
hypnotize yur son hypnotize yur daughter
so stand up Jah people we gotta get smarter
pull out a sistrens and bredrins out the gutter
look politicians dem a talk dem a blabla

watch what dem do behind a curtain
babylon a worship a serpent
watch what dem do behind a curtain
a wicked babylon dem a worship a serpent

fire burn
don't try fi miseducate the youths

dem a try fi fool yu
try fi seperate yu
miseducate yu
but rasta a go school yu
babylon dem tricky and dem want fi rule yu
cast a spell upon yu
and mind control yu

watch what dem do behind a curtain
babylon a worship a serpent
watch what dem do behind a curtain
a wicked babylon dem a worship a serpent

ya man, dem should a know
dem should a know, ras
we a burn vampire
dem should a know
this is a real ting

we burn vampire and we burn gun slaughter
dem sit down pon destruction we burn dem hotta
money inna pocket and dem think dem top shotta
we nice up the dance and play the rub a dub a
dem try fi brainwash we dem think we done sloppy
too many youths a rise and dem cyaan bury
no evil nor deception can keep we weary
Jah warrior inna militant suit or khaki
teachings of the legends transmitted to the rookie
and we stand proud with the knowledge instilled in we
like the sensimilla it enhances my ability
open up mi mind make I realize this fuckery
Jah Jah done blessed I n I with agility
so mi dodge every blow babylon a throw at we
poverty and hate including disya politricks
cyaan give in now cyaan ever try fi call it quits

dem a shapeshifting reptiles
demons from the depths of an evil dimension
and dis a warning
for my people acting blind
if yu don't seek yu don't find"
