    DREAMS LYRICS (by R.Hunt)



    I dream of better days
    I want to rest my head in a better place
    Sing songs of better ways
    Jah is due my praise
    I dream of better days
    I want to rest my head in a better place
    Sing songs of better ways
    Oh Jah!


    It’s time to make an exodus
    Forward outta Babylon
    This ain’t no place for us
    Inna them system
    we na go place we trust
    Babylon a fall
    Them a go bite the dust
    Them affi buy the dust
    So we rise up with the times
    Lifestyle conscious
    Nah mix up with the swain
    We affi die righteous
    Jah deh pon me mind
    A divine fine touch
    So they can’t come and hit me
    with disease and virus


    I dream of better days
    I want to rest my head in a better place
    Sing songs of better ways
    Jah is due my praise
    I dream of better days
    I want to rest my head in a better place
    Sing songs of better ways
    Oh Jah!
    Jah is due my praise


    Oh Jah!
    I dream on better days
    Of better ways




    And so we step it
    March out and left it
    The system’s corrupt
    So it’s time we correct it
    Delete the defected
    Flee from the wreckage
    Cause mistry Babylon a fall
    Listen to my message
    Been chanting for years
    With no fear
    It’s progressive
    True blood, sweat and tears
    Till appears still selective
    We still are there
    Till the last Jah directive
    And have no fear
    Cause we still protected



    I dream of better days
    I want to rest my head in a better place
    Sing songs of better ways
    Jah is due my praise
    I dream of better days
    I want to rest my head in a better place
    Sing songs of better ways
    Oh Jah!
    Of better days
    In a better place
    Of better ways
    Oh Jah!
    Forward for ever
    I dream on better days
    Of better ways

  • 02:00 Story B - Dreams Dub
NOTES
The A side contains the track “Dreams”, a mid tempo riddim that goes into the realms of dub poetry. Lyricist and MC Rider Shafique provides the powerful lyrics and a unique vocal delivery that combines spoken word with dreamy melodies, while Ojah’s music and production duties complete the landscape.

On the B side we find a dub version as usual, “Dreams Dub”. The mix is true to it’s name resulting in a deep …

    Freedom Fighters - Lyrics :

     

    The whole world is mad

    The whole wild world has gone crazy

    The whole world is mad

    And I'm the only sane person

     

    Freedom fighters, freedom fighters

    They are not understood

    Freedom fighters, freedom fighters

    They can not be understood

     

    The whole world is mad

    And they just don't understand

    The whole world is mad

    And they just don't understand

     

    They killed off all my friends

    Malcolm, Marcus Garvey and Martin Luther

    The rest is too much to mention

    And the whole world is mad

     

    Free freedom fighters

    Free freedom fighters

    The whole world is mad

    And they just don't understand

     

    Yeah

    The whole world's gone crazy

     

    They lie, shoot, kill and maim

    And tell them that they're all gone insane

    Claiming that they should be locked away

    Just because they call for human rights

     

    The whole world has gone mad

    And they just don't seem to understand

    The whole world is mad

    And they just don't seem to understand

     

    Crazy, crazy, crazy, crazy

    The whole wide world

    The whole wild world has gone crazy
