    Lyrics

    Chorus

    And it was written
    up in the book of lights
    theres and mansion and your forever more
    And it was written
    up in the book of lights
    theres and mansion and your forever more

    Verse 1

    Well did you know the pen was stronger than the knife
    and they can kill you once but they cant kill you twice
    did you know destruction of the flesh is not the ending to life
    fear not of thee 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 a Zion and a wear jerry curls
    Cant tell the boys from the girls
    Ya body just a vehicle transporting your soul
    Its what inside the people is beauty to behold
    Fear not of evil
    Everyday them fleshed growed
    Changes of the times they get told

    Chorus

    And it was written
    up in the book of lights
    theres and mansion and your forever more
    And it was written
    up in the book of lights
    theres and mansion and your forever more

    Verse 2
    Me say me want
    Freedom, justice, equality
    As it was written on the book of lights and sociality
    Me want fa big up Marcus Garvey say me big up Huey P
    Me na want no brutality in a me reality

    I can see it in the signs everyday I live
    Its clear to ma mind somthin getta give
    The system is the problem but it aint just gonna change
    The people got to fight as one and break free from the chains
    We livin in a time where whitey got us corned
    Shackles on the brain police on every corner
    They lookin for some soldiers but they so hard to find
    My elders say be patient cause things come in time
    Not fast enough because

    They want fa rewrite ma history and make the motherland a mystery
    cause we to strong fa them to dis we
    because if it wasn't how it is then it would definitely be
    because the days is up
    blaze it up
    AFRICAN WARRIOR raise it up
    Push it up
    Fill up ya cup
    We had enough so we're gonna buck
    Now is the time open ya mind
    Then you will find its a design
    You matter what you do no one can stop the time
    Don't want no KKK no CIA no brutality
    Ghetto youths and RBG we ridin fa liberty
    Been here before the start still here after it's over
    And its written in the heart of every soldier

    Chorus

    And it was written
    up in the book of lights
    theres and mansion and your forever more
    And it was written
    up in the book of lights
    theres and mansion and your forever more
