    This morning I woke up in a curfew
    Oh god, I was a prisoner too - yeah
    Could not recognise the faces standing over me
    They were all dressed in uniforms of brutality

    How many rivers do we have to cross
    Before we can talk to the boss
    All that we got seems lost
    We must have really paid the cost

    (That's why we gonna be)
    Burnin' and a-lootin' tonight
    (Say we gonna burn and loot)
    Burnin' and a-lootin' tonight
    (One more thing)
    Burnin all pollution tonight
    (Oh yeah, yeah)
    Burning all illusions tonight

    Oh stop them

    Give me the food and let me grow
    Let the roots man take a blow
    All them drugs gonna make you slow now
    It's not the music of the ghetto

    Weeping and a-wailing tonight
    (Ooh can't stop the tears)
    Weepin' and a-wailin' tonight
    (We've been suffering all these long, long years)
    Weeping and a-wailing tonight

    Give me the food and let me grow
    Let the roots man take a blow
    All them drugs gonna make you slow now
    It's not the music of the ghetto

    We gonna be burnin' and a-lootin' tonight
    (To survive, yeah)
    Burnin' and a-lootin' tonight
    (Save your babies lives)
    Burning all pollution tonight
    Burning all illusions tonight

    Burnin and lootin tonight
    Burnin and lootin tonight

    Until the philosophy which hold one race
    Superior and another inferior
    Is finally and permanently discredited and abandoned
    Everywhere is war, me say war

    That until there are no longer first class
    And second class citizens of any nation
    Until the colour of a man's skin
    Is of no more significance than the colour of his eyes
    Me say war

    That until the basic human rights are equally
    Guaranteed to all, without regard to race
    Dis a war

    That until that day
    The dream of lasting peace, world citizenship
    Rule of international morality
    Will remain in but a fleeting illusion
    To be pursued, but never attained
    Now everywhere is war, war

    And until the ignoble and unhappy regimes
    That hold our brothers in Angola, in Mozambique,
    South Africa sub-human bondage
    Have been toppled, utterly destroyed
    Well, everywehre is war, me say war

    War in the east, war in the west
    War up north, war down south
    War, war, rumours of war

    And until that day, the African continent
    Will not know peace, we Africans will fight

    We find it necessary and we know we shall win
    As we are confident in the victory

    Of good over evil, good over evil, good over evil
    Good over evil, good over evil, good over evil

    it was actually a tribute album.

    the one song that stood out in that album was
    Turn your Light's down Low with L.Hill

    That song is fuckin' great!

    aye, some song, it's the song on the opening credits of the french film 'La Haine' with all the Paris riots footage, a well recommended film by the way, good soundtrack too
    i have all my dads old Bob Marley vinyl, and never bothered much with it, but hearing that song got me into it, still my favourite Marley song
