(c) Treija - 2008

But if you could see their faces in my moment of triumph, in my,
Return to Zion, but still, triumphant as i am, there
There's still a place, there's still a people
A Beautiful Race, a Unified people
Back in Babylon, people cross the road, when my hoodies' on
Discrimination, and i'm sick of taking shit like the police
Keep stopping me, infringe my civil liberty.

(one love) one love, no hate
I've found a people, in a beautiful state
where i'm not the only black guy, and everybody's free
but mama, i can't go ... (i can't go down to)

Distant Zion, Distant Zion,

What if God was a racist, would i go straight down to hell
and all the good people as well
if that's the case, then what kind of ...
Heaven would it be
would the ignorant be free?
and those in hell live (rot) naturally) (tell me)

What about the people?
It's not about the greed
They're hungry and they'rs starving
These people really need
Do you call this Zion? your perfect Zion?

My Mother, i broke her heart
Coz i wasn't born there, So mama i can't go,
No, mama i can't go, hey!
No mama, i can't go (one love)

It's not, my country, are you testing me, just keep pestering me
(one love, no hate)
Is this your Zion? Well if it is, ain't no way i'm going back!

Yeah ! im gonna sell myself out, here
mmm but if i stay here, in this fucked up land
im not gonna be a token, i'm gonna be my own man, my own man
When push comes to shove, and when ive had enough
you can take me back to my fathers land, haaa-ah oohhhh

do do do do ddo doo (sing!)
