Damian Marley - It Was Written (ft. Capleton, Stephen Marley & Drag-On)

Blazing!

- Stephen Marley:
And it was written, up in the book of life
That a man shall endure forever more
And it was written, up in the book of life
That a man shall endure forever more

- Damian Marley:
Well did you know the pen
Is stronger than di knife
And they can kill you once
But they can't kill you twice
Did you know destruction of the flesh
Is not di ending to life
Fear not of the Antichrist
Did you know that I exist before the earth
And did you know my eyes, are windows to the world
Did you know you can't go ah Zion and ah wear jerry curls
Can't tell the boys from the girls
Your body's just a vehicle transporting your soul
It's what's inside the people is beauty to behold
Fear not of evil, every day dem flesh it grow old
Changes of the times take the toll

- Stephen Marley:
And it was written, up in the book of life
That a man shall endure forever more (weh de man say)
And it was written, up in the book of life
That a man shall endure forever more

- Capleton:
The one ya name, fear is in the eyes of the beholder
And love is in the presence of the love maker
Life is in the words of the comforter
Endure much longer, live much longer
Fear is in the eyes of the beholder
And love is in the presence of the love maker
Life is in the words of the comforter
Endure much longer, live much longer

- Damian Marley:
A vest around his chest and Rastafari is his name
The gift of everlasting life for us to all sustain
Blessing that you all be got
Lessons taught you all forgot
Rasta call it shit you not
Do you remember Elijah? And his chariot of flames
Same blood that runs thru my veins

- Capleton:
The one ya name, fear is in the eyes of the beholder
And love is in the presence of the love maker
Life is in the words of the comforter
Endure much longer, live much longer
Fear is in the eyes of the beholder
And love is in the presence of the love maker
Life is in the words of the comforter
Endure much longer, live much longer

Careful how you entertain stranger
Selassie never born inna nuh manger
I'll never crucify as me saviour
Elect off himself inna the ruler
Babylon ah malfunction, well dem a failure
So be careful of dem cellular and pager
'Cause I sign see dem I see danger
So dem great, but Selassie greater, yo

- Stephen Marley:
That a man shall endure forever more
And it was written, up in the book of life
That a man shall endure forever more

- Drag-on:
He did mi wanna lick upon shots
Upon a bloodclad and fill the block with bomrush cops
Cops mi dun talk you know you watch me walks in
While black woman is getting raped across New York and
Before another brother's in chalk and
Imagine somebody said that's your son dead, see him?
See us, we do the crime, we do the time
Y'all get away scott free
So police mi gonna pop you b'fore you pop me
'Cause if you get me, you got me, you shot me
Know'll lot me carry shotty since moms slap me
'Cause my room sloppy
The youngest nigga out the camp is me
But nobody pampered me
So you better don't ramp with me, fi see me
Me don't play plenty, chicks me blazed many
Raised plenty fi dollars
Storm upon mi Prada, watch a bomb holla
Watch 'im run, hit the floor
Told 'im come, come no
Throw ya ganja 'pon de air, 'plah!

- Stephen Marley:
And it was written, up in the book of life
That a man shall (blaze it up, blaze it up)
Endure forever more

- Damian Marley:
So watch for sticks and stones
Stumbling blocks in piles
Life is one big road, miles on top of miles
So blessed be the soul
That always remains a child
When most people don't even smile
There's a natural mystic blowing tru the air
So keep it realistic and always be aware
The truth is crying out
And it's so loud and so clear
But most people won't even hear
Spiritual pollution, in the atmosphere
And with so much confusion, can one be happy here?
The gift of Rastafari is for all man to share
But some would rather to be so unfair

- Stephen Marley:
And it was written, up in the book of life
That a man shall endure forever more
And it was written, ip in the book of life
That a man shall endure forever more
(Blaze it up, blaze it up)
And it was written..
