I say royal ises unto all Jah youths, you know
Soulmedic come fi tell them say-
I man a feel that Jah blessing is for we- it’s for all humanity
so man fi live up in a harmony
I man am sure -that Jah blessing is always there
for Jah children him a always care
We calling out to Jah youth everywhere

chorus
No Time fi think twice, hand me the mic
I man a done parasite, crush antichrist
Peg the vampi. string up all of them lies
Cut off all them hype, no bother ask why
x2

No more cries of fallen angels sucking blood out of Jah children
No more sacrifice- wicked device of magician
Can’t defy Jah law -decide a fi go kill them
can’t deny Jah power or divide from Jah rhythm
Life it a moving, flowing yes a true it never stopping
So me cipher is alive for not deciphering options
Apply force -to them ya blood sucking man them
Cut them off from wi all a go see them temple haunted
Filled with the blood which dem deh about sight
the blood of Christ Jeshoua- H.I.M. ya deh about I
Searching fi the grail a which them deh about sight-
Out-side dem a search -but weh it deh? -A inside now
Men find waan search and waan stray around strife
Never find the vessel of the woman bring about life
Never find the seed-a heights, them congregate around hype
concentrating their lies, woah woah

No time fi think twice
chorus X2

because the truth is written inside your heart you know
and inside the hearts of all your breadren and sistren
you nah haffi look outside of your solid foundation for that
remember that-
see this here god body tabernacle- see it a the temple fi the most high Jah
inna the battle, wicked tremble –dem a waan pose higher
but the fact it a so simple –blood it a flows Iyah
it a inna mi it a inna you – we are the host iya
Jah Jah army of armies unto we post Iyah
This here sound a call the alarming –see we roll Iyah
Since Jah Jah HIM a chosen I- him a chose Iya

I man a feel -that Jah blessing is for we – for all humanity
So man fe live up in a harmony
I man a know- that Jah blessing is always there - fi Jah children HIM a always care- Me calling out to all Jah youths from everywhere
Calling out to Jah youths them- Calling out to Jah children
Calling out- to Jah youths them
Only Jah gives me the loving yeah- Jah gives me the blessing yeah
Jah give me everything fi real
What’s inna me heart - could a never conceal
The love for all humanity it affi reveal x2

Listen up- a well me chanting- It a go so then. Well It a go so then

From coast to coast -mi no brag mi no boast
But when we touch this microphone – Babylon a burnt toast

Rolling down a west- highest grade inna me chest,

No time fe go rest from the pickney upon the breast
to the weed inna mi chest- man affi suc-cess
dutty bobby can’t test- dem nah rise- mi nah stress
all fear it a long gone- all fear a gone left
Selassie I all knowing -appeal me conscience
The seed it a growing the trees them nah rest
If you speak with corrupt lies mi emphasize -and beg you shut up
People leach with the words that them a speak- ca dem waan suck up
All your energy with idle words that them a utter
Them a go buss up suck up fuss up done up -working for them corporate
Rasta see everything them a dweet when them a _____ __
Poison all the youths- dilute the truth and make them drug up
Revolution soon a come -but theres no need to pick no gun up, ca
Jah Jah done a mek the whole place bun up- mi chant

Chorus
Blaze mi blaze mi blaze blaze gwaan heal
this a earth- from birth dutty vibe me nah feel
Ites we fi raise a raise around here
Playing no game- mi calling Jah name around here
Gal fi we days we days around here
Baby born- that a we song around here
Ganjah- the haze -real haze around here
Blaze the corn- direct from farm around here

Mi want the food organic man the weed organic
Upfulivity we a go give the whole planet
Bobby dem can’t stand it- toxic a get banished man
Spliff a the chronic – the tonic mi mussi have it man
food organic man the weed organic
Upfulivity we a go give the whole planet
Dancehall- we a ram it -the fans nah waan we stop it
advance like the stamina bomb when mi a drop it
it a real when me double-edged sword it a wheild
Me a heal -and kill dutty vampire at will
Appeal unto the youths and the elders them still
Nah feel dutty vibe , dutty vibe me nah feel
For real-- Well nothing could a bother I-
I man a trod the hola path and a chant Selassie I
Me no pass the hype- me pass to everlasting life
Defy the laws of gravity- a where mi get it from? Inside

Chorus
Blaze mi blaze mi blaze blaze gwaan heal
this earth- from birth dutty vibe me nah feel
Ites we fi raise we raise around here
Playing no game- mi calling Jah name around here
Gal fi we days we days around here
Baby born- that a we song around here
Ganja- the haze real haze around here
Blaze the corn- direct from farm around here
