Horace Andy - I Don't Want To Be Outside (aka Zion Gate)

I don't want to, no, I don't want to
Be outside, when Zion gate close
Yeah, I just want to, and yes, I want to
Be inside, when Zion gate close

'Cause the world is in sin, millions are lost
Some seeking world power, some vanity
They don't.. remember Jah

Sodom, iniquity, prostitution
Too much wrong-doings
In the sight.. of Jah

So I don't want to, no, I don't want to
Be outside, when Zion gate close
I just want to, yes, I want to
Be inside, when Zion gate close

(..)
Hmm, yeah, eh
I don't wanna be outside

Black woman, can't you see what they, are doing to you, oh?
Giving you evil pill, to destroy your nation
Oh, unto thee, to one who teach the children
The wrong-doings and tell them, that it's right

So I don't want to, no, I don't want to
Be outside, when Zion gate close
I just want to, and yes, I want to
Be inside, when Zion gate close

Yes, I don't want to
Be outside, when Zion gate close
Hmm, yes I want to..
