Bob Marley – Redemption Song Lyrics
Old pirates, yes, they rob I
Sold I to the merchant ships
Minutes after they took I
From the bottomless pit
But my hand was made strong
By the hand of the Almighty
We forward in this generation
Won't you help to sing
These songs of freedom?
Because all I ever have
Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery
None but ourselves can free our minds!
Have no fear for atomic energy
Because none of them can stop the time
How long shall they kill our prophets
While we stand aside and look?
Some say it's just a part of it
We've got to fulfill the book
