Groundation - Picture On The Wall

Yes I want back the picture that hangs on your wall
For where once the sun rose now night falls
Some may say oh what a blue sky in sight
Well now out of the distance I see lightning strike
I will never hide them, hide them all
I could never fear them, fear them all
Over there shall come a new light
Shining in this here dark life
For the Most High dwells with man tonight

See the fountain of Eden flow
Was born out of the heart of man
Who could not see them as they pray on them
Just as war fell upon our land, I do not understand
For who Jah choose is why I, I, I and I and I
Shall bring forth these axes, freeing us out of bondage
And we could finally rest our weary souls
In which we fight, these holy wars
Jah, Jah, knows it's true, in everything that we do
Oh, Jah knows it's true, la-da-da-da

(..)

I want to roll, want to hide, want to drift away
Beyond these bombs, beyond these walls
Beyond these hypocrites
Oh, but I will never right them, right them all
I could never fear them, fear them all
Over there shall come a new light
Shining in this here dark life
For the Most High dwells with I tonight
Down in the valley of Johannesburg cry
Echoes of the tears shed for life
While they refuse to hear they pray on them
Just as war fell upon our land, I do not understand
For who Jah choose is why I, I, I and I and I
Shall bring forth these axes, freeing us out of bondage
And we could finally rest our weary souls
In which we fight those holy wars

See dem as they come to dis a paradise
We shall know them who have come to service 'pon the right
I man see them as they try to take dem paradise
I know dem who have come to hide their hearts beneath these lies
Oh, la-da-da-da

And this is all, I've seen today
And this is all, I've seen today
And this is all, I've seen today
