Mm-mm-mm-mm-mm-hm! Ooh-oo-oo-oo-er, mm-mm-mm

Jah would never give the power to a baldhead
Numbers 6:5 Judges 13:5; Judg. 16:17; Leviticus 21:5; 1 Samuel 1:11; 2 Kings 2:23

Run come crucify the Dread
Mark 15:13; Luke 23:21; John 19:6

Time alone - oh, time will tell
Think you're in heaven, but ya living in hell
Think you're in heaven, but ya living in hell
Think you're in heaven, but ya living in hell
Time alone - oh, time will tell
Ya think you're in heaven, but ya living in hell

Back them up, oh, not the brothers
But the ones who set 'em up
Time alone - oh, time will tell
Think you're in heaven, but ya living in hell
Think you're in heaven, but ya living in hell
Think you're in heaven, but ya living in hell
Time alone - oh, time will tell
Ya think you're in heaven, but ya living in hell
Amos 9:2; Luke 10:15


(..)
Hmm-hmm, hmm-hmm
Oh, my children are cryin'
Oh, children, weep no more!
Isaiah 30:19

Oh, my sycamore tree, saw the freedom tree
Luke 19:4

All you ?? spoke
Oh, children, weep no more

Weep no more, children, weep no more

Jah would never give the power to a baldhead
Run come crucify the Dread
Time alone - oh, time will tell
Think you're in heaven, but ya living in hell
Think you're in heaven, but ya living in hell
Think you're in heaven, but ya living in hell
Time alone - oh, time will tell
Think you're in heaven, but ya living in hell
