The Truth

This page is for all of you who listen so often to Bob, but still don't hear him.

No sun will shine in my day today
The high yellow moon won't come out to play
I said darkness has covered my light and the stage my day into night
Where is the love to be found? Won't someone tell me?
'Cause life must be somewhere to be found instead of concrete jungle

		('Concrete Jungle')

Get up, stand up! 
Stand up for your rights!

		('Get Up, Stand Up')

Come we go burn down Babylon one more time
Come we go chant down Babylon one more time
For them soft, yes them soft
Them soft, yes them soft
So come we go chant down Babylon one more time

		('Chant Down Babylon')

Would you make the system make you kill your brother man? No dread, no
Would you make the system get on top of your your head again? No dread, no
Well the biggest man you ever did see was just a baby

		('Coming In From The Cold')

Don't let them fool you or even try to school you
We've got a mind of our own, so go to hell if what you're thinking isn't right
Love would never leave us alone
In the darkness there must come out to light

		('Could You Be Loved')

Build you penitentiary, we build your schools
Brainwash education to make us the fools
Hate is your reward for our love
Telling us of your God above

		('Crazy Baldhead')

Excuse me while I light my spliff
Good God I gotta take a lift
From reality I just can't drift
That's why I'm staying with this riff
Take it easy

		('Easy Skanking')

Open your eyes and look within
Are you satisfied with the life your living?
We know where we're going
We know where we're from
We're leaving Babylon 
We're going to our fatherland


Cause only a fool lean upon his own misunderstanding
And what has been hidden from the wise and the prudent
Been revealed to the babe and the suckling in every thing, in every way

		('Forever Loving Jah')

Many more will have to suffer
Many more will have to die
Don't ask me why
Things are not the way they used to be
I won't tell no lie
One and all got to face reality now

		('Natural Mystic')

Say you just can't live that negative way
You know what I mean? Make way for the positive day

		('Positive Vibration')

In the abundance of water the fool is thirsty

		('Rat Race')

Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery
None but ourselves can free our minds

		('Redemption Song')

Well, well, well your running away, running away
No, no, no, I'm not running away
Don't say that, don't say that, cause I'm not running away
I've got to protect my life, and I don't want to live with no strife
It is better to live on the house top than to live in a house full of confusion
So, I made my decision and I left you
Now you coming to tell me that I'm running away
But it's not true, I am not running away

		('Running Away')

So Jah seh, not one of my seeds shall sit in the sidewalk and beg bread

		('So Jah Seh')

So you think you have found the solution, but it's just another illusion
So before you check out your tide, don't leave another cornerstone standing there behind

		('So Much Trouble In The World')

Don't care what the world seh
I'n I couldn't never go astray

		('Natty Dread')

Until the philosophy, which hold one race superior and another inferior, 
is finally and permanently, discredited and abandoned; everywhere is war.


Now we know everything we got to rebel

		('Babylon System')

They made their world so hard, every day we got to keep on fighting
They made their world so hard, every day the people are dying

		('One Drop')

Life is one big road with lots of signs
So when you riding thru the ruts don't complicate your mind
Free from hate, mischief and jealousy
Don't bury your thoughts, put your vision to reality, yeah!

		('Wake Up And Live')

Hey Mr. Music why don't you wanna play
Don't you know today is a bright holiday
Some people waiting for the message that you bring
They listening to every word that you'll sing

		('Mix Up, Mix Up')

Stiff necked fools, you think you're cool to deny me for simplicity
Yes you have gone, for so long with your love for vanity now
Yes you have got the wrong interpretation mixed up with vain imagination
So take Jah sun and Jah moon and Jah rain and Jah stars and forever, yes erase your fantasy
