Everywhere i go them praising
Everywhere i go them praising

Praises no matter about the people or the place is
No matter the religion or the race is
They pray for the goodness among all
Them praising wherever you go they give thanks and praises
They’re going to the mosques and to the churches
They do the same in different ways

Some of them are monotheist and consider we’re Abraham descendants
Few of them are polytheist and ask each god every question
Some are based in the Dharma, in gathering the Karma
Don’t disturb the nature just make good action for salvation

Everywhere i go them praising
Everywhere i go them praising

Some believe in Buddha, a life to get out of the suffering
And then Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva
As creation, preservation and destruction
Some believe in Confucius and try a good condition of living
Some practice the Taoism a Yin and Yang inside the Tao

And some believe in Jesus, as the mighty son of god
Some believe in Allah, and the last prophet Mahoma
He receive from Allah the Guran gave by Gabriel The Archangel
And di Rasta believe in Jah,
They’re following Selassie I
They embrace the words of Marcus Garvey
And pray to Jah Rastafari

Why do you always let your mind defeat your heart?
You show that cold mask of yours, put everything else apart
Come on Mr. Logical, don’t be so psychological
Why do you try to make the world believe that you don’t mind?

But now you’re gone
Nothing will be the same again
I hope you think you’re happy

Always the same stupid work hiding anything you’re feeling
Why don’t you just relax and listen to your heart beating?
Enjoy the present of sharing with someone you love that we’re still breathing
Don’t be scared, Mr. Logical, cause love is the one thing

Why do you always let your mind defeat your heart?
You show that cold mask of yours, put everything else apart
Come on Mr. Logical, don’t be so psychological
Why do you try to make the world believe that you don’t mind?

But now you’re gone
Nothing will be the same again
I hope you think you’re happy

Always the same stupid work hiding anything you’re feeling
Why don’t you just relax and listen to your heart beating?
Enjoy the present of sharing with someone you love that we’re still breathing
Don’t be scared, Mr. Logical, cause love is the one thing

Some want to build an ark
but we are not supposed to be on board
Any Lord is supposed to love us all
Every wall s right about to fall and if it´s not we fight them all
Don´t play God

Archaic moods, obsolete rules
Such heritage comes to the bound if you leave no open gates
There will be no mixed fates
We already know they don´t share no good
We already know they don´t share no shelter
Wisdom is the tool we´ll use to prove
we depend no more on them but on us self respectness
Too late, it is not.
Shall we play this game or take a different guideline back to the start
Too late, it is not.
Prosperity will not be brought by them device.

Some want to build an ark
but we are not supposed to be on board
Any Lord is supposed to love us all
Every wall s right about to fall and if it´s not we fight them all
Don´t play God

It´s not too late.

Don´t play God
You are the new kid on the block.
You can´t give I what you ain´t got.
So keep talking as you talk
Go on, creep to the top. It is rude.
Fed up with them who share no good.
Roots music´s what we know to shoot.
Do some good to you:
love your brother, so your brother loves you too.

Some want to build an ark but nobody can go so far.
We rode alone a long way not to become your lab.
Who said it´s too late goes not far enough.
Get out the way or join the flow, them a gonna bow, gonna bow.

It´s not too late, don´t play God...

Strong woman
Go not after them
Gorgeous Woman
Go not after them
Lil Woman
Go not after them
Listen Woman
Go not after them

Girls should not be bad ya’know
We shouldn’t complain
Should not break hearts
Should not abroad
Ya’ should be a good girl
Girls should be thin
Be careful with gaining weight
Manicure your nails
Above all be straight
They know what best fits you

Strong woman
Go not after them
Gorgeous Woman
Go not after them
Lil Woman
Go not after them
Listen Woman
Go not after them

Girls have the right to err
And right to complain
We can break hearts
We’re able to abort
Decide our future
Girls can be thin
Or have excess of weight
Bite our nails
Be gay or straight
Be free and feel good

There's still good in dis world
Jah know

One day we were walking inna London town
Not the kind of city where the crime rate's down
We trodding inna Brixton,
man come from behind
Maybe packing pistol,
But what's on his mind?
So we were expecting some rum, pum, pum
So we gettin ready fe di run, run, run
But what a surprise,
Looks are deceiving
He just wanted help,
A sister was bleeding

Looks are deceiving x2

We deh pon di Broadway
And we de pon di Ras
Sudden connection
A Friendship that last
Jammin in da studio
Future, present and past
Teachings from di Most High
Him a transmit and pass

Listen to His Rastaman chant

Baba Rastaman chant now..

There's still good in this world
Jah know

We deh pon di city
And we deh pon di clash
Soundsystem culture
Inna dubwise, no rush
Musical expression,
Expecting no aggression,
Something draws our attention
And a riot affi start
And everyone is starting to flee, thinking
"good, it wasn't me"
Blood drops a dropping in pairs
But no one seemed to care

Here what I say now x2

Till a woman came and stood
Inna middle of the scene
Look dem straight in di eye
Nah seh nothing, just a cry
All di riot and di tension
All di misscomprehension
All di mass confusion
Soon came to an end
So she touched dem with her likkle bare hands,
and some of these foes, became friends
No matter where u travel around, good people can always be found,

Cuz there's still good
In this world
Jah know

Never give up
Me never give up
Never give up
No, never
Never give up
Me never give up
Never give up
Don't give up

Anytime
I walk around
I see
Oh I see

Too many things are happening
Faces of confusion, never smiling
Brothers and sisters them are fighting
While corrupts them are running away
Looking to our integrity
As an established society
Brothers and sisters have no liberty
While corrupts them are running away
Me never, never, never give up
As I know love inside of us
Me never, never, never give up
As I know hope inside of us

Me never give up the fight

Never give up
Me never give up
Never give up
No, never
Never give up
Me never give up
Never give up
Don't give up

Anytime
I walk around
I see
Oh I see

Too many things are happening
Faces of confusion, never smiling
Brothers and sisters them are fighting
While corrupts them are running away
Looking to our integrity
As an established society
Brothers and sisters have no liberty
While corrupts them are running away
Me never, never, never give up
As I know hope inside of us
Me never, never, never give up
As I know love is inside of us (inside of us)

No, never give up the fight
