Steel Pulse - Tight Rope

Deliver me oh my Father;
From the downpressers, set me free!

Dem a trying to keep I down,
But I will always prosper, yes I.
Dem a trying to keep I down,
But I will always.. woo-noo!

Got me walking, walking on a tightrope,
Can't afford to buck my toe, no!
And as long as Babylon, Babylon is my foe,
I will have hope in my soul.
A poor man's life don't cut no ice,
With so many mouths to feed.
And if my word ain't good enough,
Just take a look and see.

Got me walking, walking on a tightrope,
Can't afford to buck my toe, no!
And as long as Babylon, Babylon is my foe,
I will have hope in my soul.
Like a drowning man who clutches a straw,
Might think he's got no chance.
The will of Jah can pull him through,
He's a helping hand, you got that.

Got me walking, walking on a tightrope,
Can't afford to buck my toe, no!
And as long as Babylon, Babylon is my foe,
I will have hope in my soul.
From the valley of dry bones I have risen,
And I've got to make a change.
Hang my head in the clouds with conviction,
Ain't no stopping now.
Oh deliver me, oh my Father!

Got me walking, on a tightrope,
Can't afford to buck my toe, no!
And as long as Babylon is my foe now,
I will have hope in my soul.
Just can't keep me down.
Just can't keep me down.
Just can't keep me down;
Really just can't keep me.

Got me walking on a tightrope,
Never, never say die.
Reach the mountain high!
