My distant teacher
Distant teacher
Every song a lesson
Every song a sign
My distant teacher
BOB MARLEY his name
Educator his reign
The world his class room
With prophesies he came
Monumental prophesies of what will remain.
Buffalo soldier, Dread lock Rasta
Taken from the homeland, to the heart of the carry-beyond
My distant teacher taught me, to open my eyes and look within
Are you satisfied with the life you are living?
Rasta man live up, Rasta man donít give up.
Sun is shining, and the weather is sweet
Makes you want to move, your dancing feet
To the rescue, here H.I.M. come
See them fighting for power
But they know not the hour
So theyíre bribing, with their guns, spare parts, and money
Trying to belittle our, integrity now
Through political strategy, they keep us hungry
And when you got to get some food
Your brother got to be your enemy now
Ambush in the night, but every thingís gonna be alright
They say the blood runs, and it runs through our lineage †
And our hearts, hearts of hearts divine
But John say them coming, with the truth from an ancient time.
Every manís got the right, to decide his own destiny
And in this judgement, there is no partiality
So arm in arms, with arms, we will fight this little struggle
Cause thatís the only way we can overcome this little trouble
How good, and how pleasant it would be, before God and man
To see the unification, of all Africans
As itís been said already, let it be done
We are the children, under the sun.
We are the children of the, higher one.
They made their world so hard, everyday we got to keep on fighting
They made their world so hard, everyday the people are dying
From hunger and starvation
Take of the veil from off your eyes, step into the future of realise
Check out the real situation, we are coming in from the cold
Emancipate yourself from mental slavery
None but ourselves can free our minds
Have no fear for atomic energy, cause none a dem can stop JAH time
How long shall they kill our prophets, while we stand aside and look
Some say itís just a part of it, we got to fulfil the book
Wonít you help to sing, another song of freedom
Cause all I ever have, REDEMTION SONGS
But to the rescue, here H.I.M. come
MY DISTANT TEACHER
