Uplifters – Gallas Trap (1978)

“But while we’re at it, we have to round it out with another gem from the Narrows catalog, the haunting “Gallas Trap” by Uplifters. A rare one released only on 12″ in Brooklyn from Narrows’ former Linden Blvd HQ, it’s more killer early 80s sound laid down at Channel 1, back out now on a 7-inch.”

“Blindfolded, leading out to the gallows trap
Never know the minute nor the hour
The last drip of blood will drop
Blindfolded, leading out to the gallows trap
Never know when, no, no
Brutality will ever stop

Some wicked think they are racing for the top
And I know them haffi get a drop
Some are climbing up a sipple wall
And I know them come to get a fall

Majority down and they fear no fall
Majority down and I open each them to Jah call

Blindfolded, leading out to the gallows trap
Never know the minute nor the hour
The last drip of blood will drop
Blindfolded, leading out to the gallows trap
Never know when, no, no
Brutality will ever stop

Some wicked think they are racing for the top
And I know them haffi get a drop
Some are climbing up a sipple wall
And I know them come to get a fall

Majority down and they fear no fall
Majority down and I open each them to Jah call

Blindfolded, leading out to the gallows trap
Never know the minute nor the hour
The last drip of blood will drop
Blindfolded, leading out to the gallows trap
Never know when, no, no
Brutality will ever stop

Never know when, no, no
Brutality will ever stop
Cah when brutality will ever stop
It down to the drop
When brutality will ever stop…”
Jah Lyrics
