Road To Zion



Yeah Man...Jah will be waiting there, We a shout!Jah will be waiting there
[Verse 1]In this world of calamityDirty looks and grudges and jealousyAnd police weh abuse dem authorityMedia clowns weh nuh know 'bout varietyBoom!
The youngest veteran a go murder dem slowRagga muffin sent to call me from the bush bungalowUnnu watch mek I clear out my voice now Figaro!Emerge from the darkness with mi big blunt a glowMi hammer dem a slam and spectator get lowSome bwoy coulda big like Bam Bam BiggalowBust of trigger finger, trigger hand and trigger toeA two gun mi have mi bust dem inna stereo Cause
[Hook]I got to keep on walking on the road to Zion, manWe gots to keeps it burning on the road to Zion, man
[Chorus 1]Clean and pure meditation without a doubtDon't mek dem take you like who dem took outJah will be waiting there we a shoutJah will be waiting there!In this world of calamityDirty looks and grudges and jealousyAnd police weh abuse dem authorityMedia clowns weh nuh know bout varietySingle parents weh need some charityYouths weh need some love and prosperityInstead of broken dreams and tragedyBy any plan and any means and strategy
[Hook]Say!We got to keep on walking on the road to Zion, man (Nas: I've been waiting to do this track with you man! Yeah...ha ha)(Yeah, yeah)You know (They know)We got to keep on walking on the road to Zion, man(Yeah you gotta keep walking y'all,You gotta keep...)
[Nas]Sometimes I can't help but feel helpless I'm havin daymares in daytime Wide awake try to relate This can't be happenin like I'm in a dream while I'm walkin Cause what I'm seein is hauntingHuman beings like ghost and zombiesPresident Mugabe holding guns to innocent bodiesIn ZimbabweThey make John Pope seem GodlySacrilegious and blasphemous
In my lifetime I look back at paths i've walkedWhere savages fought and pastors taught Prostitutes stomp in high heel boots And badges screaming,"Young black children stop or I will shoot!"I look back at cooked crack Plus cars that pass byJaguars mad flyAnd I'm guilty for materialism Blacks is still up in the prison Trust that So save me your sorries, I'm raising an army Revolutionary warfare with Damian Marley We sparkin' the ions, marching to Zion You know how Nas be NYC state of mind I'm in
[Verse 1 Repeats]
[Hook]I got to keep on walking on the road to Zion, manWe gots to keeps it burning on the road to Zion, man
Clean and pure meditation without a doubtDon't mek dem take you like who dem took outJah will be waiting there we a shoutJah will be waiting there!
[Chorus 2]Clean and pure meditation without a doubtDon't mek dem take you like who dem took outJah will be waiting there we a shoutJah will be waiting there!In this world of calamityDirty looks and grudges and jealousyAnd police weh abuse dem authorityMedia clowns weh nuh know bout varietySingle parents weh need some charityYouths weh need some love and prosperityInstead of broken dreams and tragedyBy any plan and any means and strategyInstead of broken dreams and tragedyYouths weh need some love and prosperity Instead of broken dreams and tragedyBy any plan and any means and any strategyAy! say,
