Babylon don't like we so we dont like babylon
Must be strong
Narrow is the way of the good and not the wrong
Wide is the way in gomorrah and sodom
Burn down babylon
So we ah go try and we ah go try
Until we reach the mountaintop
Full of energy from Haile Selassie cup
We ah go chop round go chop
With machete and lass
Must be strong

Jah give me the strength of mind to carry on
Jah give me the breath of life to carry on
So right here now we carry on

Jah give me the strength of mind and power now to carry on
Jah give me the spiritual foundation now to carry on

Don't sleep

Don't sleep in this time don't sleep
Don't sleep in this time don't sleep
Rest your eyes at night and close your eyes
But deep in your mind don't sleep
Don't sleep

Don't sleep and sleep until the sunrise gone
Until the evening come and you ain't go nothing done
Don't sleep and sleep until you're
All dig and buried
And the vision hazy
Babylon lazy
So much to do so little time
So many things inna mi mind
So many things fallen behind
Can't waste time
Don't waste time

Don't sleep in this time don't sleep
Don't sleep in this time don't sleep
Rest your eyes at night and close your eyes
But deep in your mind don't sleep
Don't sleep

Don't sleep and sleep until the right time come
Sleep and sleep until your body broke down
I and I up in the morning 3 o'clock prayer done
Fari livity is a disciplined one
Rastafari livity is not a lazy one
Say, set the standard and the bar up
Everytime I say Selassie I have to stay up
Stay up
Stay up and don't sleep in the Gideon time. 
Stay up and dont sleep if you waan save your life
Stay up inna the time
Up inna the time

Don't sleep in this time don't sleep
Don't sleep in this time don't sleep
Rest your eyes at night and close your eyes
But deep in your mind don't sleep
Don't sleep


ethiopian sunrize

They see us as a hungry child
In a perpetual state of genocide
Without a clue on how to civilize
They never know until the morning light 

Ethiopian sunrize
Ethiopians surging like the River Nile
What an insurrection coming inna due time
Sunrize

Rise
Warriors converging on the River Nile
What a resurrection we will see in due time
Sunrize

We have come into this world dark as we are
In a different category in a different caste
So we had to go down the catacomb path
Waiting til that day when we'll be free at last
What happened in the past stays in the past
What's happening now it nah really gwaan last
If you can't tell then you're headed for a crash
We will rise up like the Phoenix from the ash 

Ethiopian sunrize
Ethiopians surging like the River Nile
What an insurrection coming in due time
Sunrize

Rise
Warriors converging right there pon the River Nile
What a resurrection we will see in due time
Sunrize

We have come into this world
Dark was the road
In my mothers womb I was fashioned from beyond
In the dark of Africa I hear a sound
Calling us forward to reclaim our throne
In Addis Ababa where Selassie was crowned
By the coast of Ghana Kwame Nkrumah was found
In the hills of Kenya where the Mau Mau fought on
Majesty works yeah they must live on

Ethiopian sunrize
Ethiopians surging like the River Nile
What an insurrection coming in due time
Sunrize

Rise
Warriors converging right there on the River Nile
What a resurrection we will see in due time
Sunrize

lake tana

Lake Tana
Water is so still
Lake Tana
High up on the western hill

Over there there is a rock
Where Maryam rest
And right upon the rock
Is Yekuno Amlak
And so Frumentius
Upon the island of Cherqos
Along with Negus Zara Yaqob
Dawit and Fasilides, Za Dengel

Lake Tana
Water is so still
Lake Tana
High up on the western hill

So from Jerusalem
The Ark was taken
800 hundred years hidden
Oh not a problem, not a problem
And so we went again
Storing the crown manuscripts
From tanqwa boat, reed papyrus
Oh less than zero risk, kyrie eleison 

Lake Tana
Water is so still
Lake Tana
High up on the western hill


yes now

Yes Now

Letting the Most High in
Make me feel like a treasure
Holding the Most High in
All in

Positive I've always been
Even in times of displeasure
When I should say no I said yes I did

Cause even when the odds were high
And when the chances they were very slim
I did not say no I can never win
I only said yes I will be conquering

Yes Now

So I say yes yes yes
Why are they limiting their heart and mind
Negative emotions rule them inside
Negative responses unresponsive time
How could Jah Jah work ever be confined
In my every thought and in my innermost vibe  
Iman say yes yes yes
Know them by design
Know them over time
Know that the hurt can blind
Shift the paradigm
At the drop of a dime
Mountains now fi climb
We'll make it over time
Another verse and rhyme
On the borderline
Denial is a sign
Of the changing times
 
Yes Now

So I say yes yes yes
Why they never fear now to take a life
Are they afraid now to stay alive
Inna dem vanity their thoughts and lies
Never know the truth and  where the truth reside
Still dem looking east when they should look inside
Never look interior man they move aside
Watch now how they move and just keep passing by
Fear is in their heart I can see it in their eyes
So I say yes yes yes


starlight

Starlight shining in your eye
Hail King Selassie I
All your springs are within I
And I

Many many times I rise
Many many times I fall
I don't wanna be like
Old babylonian walls
That fade away with age
And crumble with the time
Life is blessing always
Every day, so I say

Starlight shining in your eye
Hail King Selassie I
All your springs are within I
And I

It's like the light from Mount Sinai
One glance and Moses had to hide his eyes
In ancient Ethiopia where the power lies
Heliotherapy all the time
Modernize stay ancient in the presence of Selassie I
Rays of the sun magnify and no lie
When i gaze upon the warm starlight
I see my own light

Light from the highest regions
Home to the host and legions
Home to the real peacemakers
One Order none greater
Cause the most High Jah He is Creator
All over these acres
And we know that the dragon is a faker
Corruption and scandal they favor
Power King Selassie I savor
All over these acres
Jah consider we now and forever
Jah deliver we now and forever
Jah protect we now and forever
Over these acres
Cause Selassie I yes He is the Maker
And You I consider

Starlight
Tell you bout the starlight

In the eyes of His Majesty Selassie I

Starlight
Tell you bout the starlight

chant out

Anywhere we go Rastaman we chant out
Music from the heart so you know we chant out
Riddim from the drumbeat and our heart chant out
Rasta chant out

Anything we do Rastaman we chant out
Words from in our heart yo we chant out
Timbrel with the psaltery and the harp we chant out
Rasta chant out

So many words
And so many things to say
So much to discuss
So much to debate
I feel it everyday
Deep within my heart
And my innermost state
Igziabher Jah must be praised
In my every thought
And my innermost state
Yes Jah must be praised
Jah must be praised

Anywhere we go Rastaman we chant out
Music from the heart so you know we chant out
Riddim from the drumbeat and our heart chant out
Rasta chant out

Anything we do Rastaman we chant out
Words from in our heart yo we chant out
Timbrel with the psaltery and the harp we chant out
Rasta chant out

Anywhere we go
Jah words I speak
Anywhere we go
Jah words I speak

Creation is the greatest word
Manifest the highest word
Every action brings reaction
Every thought becomes a word
Every word becomes a thought
So now be wise in what you heard
Choose now carefully your words

Words of wisdom must converge
Babylon will be submerged
Waters agitate and stir
When the lion wakes and breaks the curse
Rastafari prominence is evident in what you heard
Kette drum the fire burns

Anywhere we go Rastaman we chant out
Music from the heart so you know we chant out
Riddim from the drumbeat and our heart chant out
Rasta chant out

Anything we do Rastaman we chant out
Words from in our heart yo we chant out
Timbrel with the psaltery and the harp we chant out
Rasta chant out

Anywhere we go
Jah words i speak
Anywhere we go
Jah words I speak
