Steel Pulse - Babylon Makes The Rules

Rasta seh - guidance forever!
But Backrah seh different still.
Rasta seh - guidance everlasting!
But Backrah seh different still.

A weh dem a go do when the time comes around?
A weh dem a go say?
A weh dem a go do when the time comes around?
A weh dem a go say?

My people are in a mess,
But nobody wants to know.
'Cause when you're down and out and oppressed,
You've got to fight your battles from the lowest of the low.
So keep your distance and take your stance,
'Cause this could be your utmost chance.
You've had all night and day to consider and pray.
You've brought fire on my head and now you must pay.

Babylon makes the rules! Babylon makes the rules!
Babylon makes the rules! Babylon makes the rules!
Where my people suffer..

Take Rastaman culture for instance,
Dem think is political joke.
But we people know better then that,
'Cause what keeps us together is Jah herb that we smoke.
I and I know the truth of it all,
'Cause we have smashed our heads 'gainst that wall.
And now I seh we must create a scene,
We must recapture our culture by any means.

Babylon makes the rules! Babylon makes the rules!
Babylon makes the rules! Babylon makes the rules!
Where my people suffer..

Count the times we've been let down,
And left us in despair.
And woe betide that evil man, who giveth not a care.
You've gotta check yourself just one more time,
Reassure your mind -
'Cause those who are chosen by the Father's hand,
Must not get left behind.

Rasta seh - guidance!
But Backrah seh different still.
Rasta seh - guidance!
But Backrah seh different still.
Rasta seh - guidance!
But Backrah seh different still.
Rasta seh - guidance everlasting!
But Backrah seh different still.

Babylon makes the rules.. (Jah love, will carry I home..)
