Buju Banton - Til I'm Laid To Rest Lyrics




[Chorus]
'Til I'm laid to rest
Always be depressed
There's no life in the West
I know the East is the best
All the propaganda they spread
Tongues will have to confess

I'm in bondage living is a mess
I've got to rise up alleviate the stress
No longer will I expose my weakness
He who seeks knowledge begins with humbleness
Work 7 to 7 but I'm still penniless
All the food upon my table Massa God bless
Holler for the needy and shelterless
Ethiopia awaits all prince and princess

[Chorus]

What coube so bad about the East
Everybody wants a piece
Africa for Africans
Marcus Mosiah speak
Unification outnumbers defeat
What a day when we walk down Redemption Street
Banner on heads bible inna we hands
One and all lets trod the promised land
Buju go down a Congo
Stopped in Shashamane Land
The city of Harare where Selassie com from
In Addis Ababa then Batswana
Left Kenya end up in Ghana
Oh what a beauty my eyesight behold
Only Ethiopia protect me from the cold

[Chorus]

Organize and centralize come as one
Our seeds shall be so many more than sand
Some new and replenish pure and clean heart
For too long we've been under this band
Some a save a bag a riches
Yet they die empty hand
Go on saying I'm stupid and laugh all you can
Easier for a camel to go through a needle eye
Than a rich man to enter a Zion
Take it from I man
So

[Chorus]

  73. HeritageSelfRespect HealingThrivingSelfWorth

    I know colonialism and apartheid keep us divided but I cried when I think that African countries didn’t try to claim us diaspora folks back from the west. But I know the cause so I let it go. You know your family members were kidnapped you search for them or even their remains for some closer. I felt abandoned in the west. But Maya (water) Angelou (angel) once says if you cannot change something change your mind (adjust your thinking) T-T)

  74. Rena K

    All my days!
    Seem like they have been wasted, eh? (Uh huh)
    Bo'y'know
    Just goes out to show
    Till I'm laid to rest, yes
    Always be depressed
    There's no life in the West uh
    I know the East is the best
    All di propaganda dem spread
    Tongues will haffi confess

    Oh I'm in bondage
    Living is a mess
    An I've got to rise up
    Alleviate the stress
    No longer will I
    Expose my weakness
    He who seeks knowledge
    Begins with humbleness
    Work 7 to 7
    Yet me still penniless
    For di food pon me table
    Massa God bless
    'Oller fi di needy
    An shelterless
    Ethopia awaits
    All prince and princess-uh

    Till I'm laid to rest, yes
    Always be depressed
    There's no life in the West uh
    I know the East is the best, yes
    Propaganda dem spread
    Tongues will haffi confess

    What could a bad so bout di East
    Everybody wants a piece
    Africa fi Africans
    Marcus Mosiah speak
    Unification
    Outnumber defeat
    What a day when we walkin' down
    Redemption Street
    Banner pon head
    Bible inna hand
    One and all
    Make we trod di promised land
    Buju go down a Congo
    Stop inna Sashamanne land
    The city of Hararre's
    Where Selassie come from
    In Addis Abbaba
    Den Botswana
    Left Kenya
    A end up inna Ghana
    Oh what a beauty
    My eye sight behold
    Only Ethiopia
    Protect me from di cold

    Till I'm laid to rest, yes
    Always be depressed
    There's no life in the West uh
    I know the East is the best
    All di propaganda dem spread
    Tongues will haffi confess

    Organize and centralize
    Come as one
    Our seeds shall be
    So many more den sand
    Some new and replenish
    Pure an clean heart
    Far too long
    We've been under this bond
    Some a save a bag a riches
    An dem bend empty hand
    Waan say me stupid
    An laugh all yuh can
    Easier for a gunman to enter through a needle eye
    Than it is for a rich guy to enter inna zion
    Take it from I man (so)

    Till I'm laid to rest, yes
    Always be depressed
    There's no livin' in the West uh
    I know the East is the best
    Lord, propaganda dem spread
    Tongues will haffi confess

    Oh I'm in bondage
    Living is a mess

    Did not know that these men were speaking facts, Rastafarians are look up as inferior we hardly listen to them however we hold Christianity so close to our hearts and nothing is wrong with that but only a fool with talk knowledge from its slave masters and run with it. Its time for Jamaica and the Caribbean to wake up just like Africa is doing, go back to Africa and stop looking to slave masters for help ( the Caribbean is the land of African so its ours, Africans dont even realize that)... Jamaica and the Caribbean is not independent because the government is holding it back. The people have evolved and are uniting but the government is holding it back. But if the mother is in bondage so will her daughters and until Africa rise we will all still be in bondage. Do you see what happens when Africa rise, African all over the globe no matter where we are rise, not just economically but spiritual ( I feel my spirt smiling). Africa plz rise because your daughters and son want to come home, for 400 years we have laboured with our sweat and tears, losing our children, mothers, sisters and our fathers. Plz for the sake of all of us, for the sake of our forefathers who died and fight so we can be free, plz I'm asking with tears running done my face, if you fail to rise we will be in deep trouble🇯🇲😗.
