"Tight Rope" as written by and David Robert Hinds....
Deliver me, oh, my father
From the down pressers set me free
Dem a trying to keep I down
I will always prosper, yes I
Dem a trying to keep I down
I will always, no

Got me walking, walking on a tightrope
Can't afford to buck my toe, no
As long as Babylon, Babylon is my foe
I will have hope in my soul

Poor man's life don't cut no ice
So many mouths to feed
And if my word ain't, ain't good enough
Just, just take a look and see, yeah

Got me walking, walking on a tightrope
Can't afford to buck my toe, no
As long as Babylon, Babylon is my foe
I will have hope in my soul

Like a drowning man that clutches a straw
Might think he's got no chance, no
The will of Jah can pull him through
He's a helping hand, you got that

Got me walking, walking on a tightrope
Can't afford to buck my toe, no
As long as Babylon, Babylon is my foe
I will have hope in my soul

From the valley of dry bones I have risen
Got to make a change
Hang my head in the clouds with conviction
Ain't no stopping now
Deliver me, oh, my father, set me free

Hey, walking on a tightrope
Can't afford, no, can't afford, no way
Never gonna buck my toe
As long as Babylon is my foe, now
I will have hope in my soul

Just can't keep me down, no
Just can't keep me down, no way
Just can't keep me down, ooh
Just can't keep me, really, just can't keep me

Got me walking, walking on a tightrope
Never, never say die
Reach the mountain high

Never, never say die
Never, never say die
Never, never say die
Reach the mountain high

Walking on a tightrope
Walking on a tightrope
