Karmacoma

I used to think the lyric from Massive Attack's Karmacoma was
D'ye make it in Roma?

That seemed right when we were planning on moving to Rome three years ago.

Looking at online lyrics doesn't clear up the confusion, e.g.
Jamaica an' Roma

Given Tricky's trippy texts, I'd go for
Jamaican aroma

However, since Mr B's been offered jobs both here and in Kingston, the lyric in my head is

Karmacoma
Jamaica or Roma?
Karmacoma
Jamaica or Roma?


Input appreciated ...
