Damian marley-It Was Written

It Was Written

Blazing!

Chorus
Stephen Marley:
And it was written
Up in the book of life
That a man shall
Endure forever more
(Repeat)

Verse 1
Damian Marley a.k.a Jr. Gong:
Well did you know the pen
Is stronger than di knife
And they can kill you once
But they cant kill you twice
Did you know destruction of di flesh is not di ending to life
Fear not of the anti-christ
Did you know that I
Exist before the earth
And did you know my eyes
Are windows to the world
Did you know you cant go ah Zion and ah wear jerry curls
Cant tell the boys from the girls
The bodys just a vehicle
Transporting the soul
Its whats inside the people
Is beauty to behold
Fear not of evil
Everyday dem flesh it grow old
Changes of the times take the toll

Chorus
(Repeat)

Verse 2
Capleton:
The one ya name, fear is in the eyes of di beholder
And love is in the presence of the love maker
Life is in the words of the comforter
Endure much longer
Live much longer
Fear is in the eyes of di beholder
And love is in the presence of the love maker
Life is in the words of the comforter
Endure much longer
Live much longer

Verse 3
Damian Marley a.k.a Jr. Gong:
A vest around his chest and Rastafari is his name
The gift of everlasting life for us to all sustain
Blessing that you all be got
Lessons taught you all forgot
Rasta call it shit you not
Do you remember Elijah
And his chariot of flames
Same blood that runs thru my veins

Verse 4
Capleton:
The one ya name, fear is in the eyes of di beholder
And love is in the presence of the love maker
Life is in the words of the comforter
Endure much longer
Live much longer
Fear is in the eyes of di beholder
And love is in the presence of the love maker
Life is in the words of the comforter
Endure much longer
Live much longer
Careful how you entertain stranger
Selassie never born inna nuh manger
I’ll never crucify as me savior
Elect off himself inna the ruler
Babylon ah nah malfunction well dem a failure
So be careful of dem cellular and pager
Cause I sign see dem I see danger
So dem grateful Selaisse I pray to you

That a man shall
Endure forever more
Chorus

Verse 5
Drag-on:
He did mi wanna lick upon shots
Upon a bloodclad
And fill the block with BOMRUSH cops
Cops mi dun talk you know you watch me walks in
While black woman is getting raped across New York And
Before another brother’s in chalk And
I ‘magine somebody said that’s your son dead, see him?
See us we do the crime we do the time
Y’all get away scott free
So police mi gonna pop you b’fore you pop me
Cause if you get me you got me you shot me
Know’ll lot me carry shotty since moms slap me
Cause my room sloppy
The youngest nigga out the camp is me
But nobody pampered me
So you better don’t ramp with me
Fi see me, me don’t play plenty
Chicks me blazed many
Raised plenty fi dollars
Storm upon mi prada
Watch a bomb holla
Watch ‘im run, hit the floor
Told ‘im come, come no
Throw ya ganja pon de air
‘plah!’

Stephen Marley:
And it was written
Up in the book of life
That a man shall (Capleton: blaze it up, blaze it up)
Endure forever more

Verse 6
Damian:
Watch for sticks and stones
Stumbling blocks in piles
Life is one big road
Miles on top of miles
So blessed be the soul
That always remains a child
When most people don’t even smile
There’s a natural mystic
Blowing tru the air
So keep it realistic
And always be aware
The truth is crying out
And it’s so loud and so clear
But most people won’t even hear
Spiritual pollution in the atmosphere
And with so much confusion
Can one be happy here
The gift of Rastafari is for all man to share
But some would rather to be so unfair

Chorus
And it was written
Up in the book of life
That a man shall
Endure forever more
And it was written
Up in the book of life
That a man shall
Endure forever more (Capleton: Blaze it up Blaze it up)
And it was written (Capleton: Yeah yeah yeah)
Up in the book of life
