"Revolution" as written by Stephen Marley, Ziggy Marley and Anthony Henderson....
Revelation reveals the truth revelation
(Revolution, revolution, revolution oooo-doo-doo-doo-doo)
(Revolution oooo-doo-doo-doo-doo)

It takes a revolution (revolution) to make a solution
(Doo-doo-doo-doo)
Too much confusion (aaa-aaah), so much frustration, eh!
I don't want to live in the park (live in the park)
Can't trust no shadows after dark (shadows after dark), yeah-eh!
So, my friend, I wish that you could see
Like a bird in the tree, the prisoners must be free, yeah! (Free)

Never make a politician grant you a favor
(Doo-doo-doo-doo)
They will always want to control you forever, eh!
(Forever, forever)
So if a fire make it burn (make it burn, make it burn)
And if a blood make ya run (make ya run, run, run)
Rasta de 'pon top, can't you see? (Doo-doo-doo-doo)
So you can't predict the flop eh-eh! (Doo-doo-doo-doo)

We got lightning (lightning), thunder (thunder)
Brimstone (brimstone) and fire fire (fire, fire)
Lightning (lightning), thunder (thunder)
Brr-brimstone (brimstone) and fire fiyah fire fiyah!
(Fire, fire)

Kill, cramp and paralyze all weak at conception
Wipe them out of creation (creation), yeah-eah! (Creation)
Wa-jah, jah, jah! Wa-jah, jah, jah! (Creation)

Oh! Let I'es is I'es (I'es), in I'es is black (I'es)
In I'es is red (I'es), in I'es is dread

Let righteousness cover the earth
Like the water cover the sea, yeah! Yeah!

Lightning (lightning), doo-doo-doo (thunder)
Doo-doo-doo (brimstone), doo-doo-doo (fire, fire)
A lightning (lightning), thunder (thunder)
Brimstone (brimstone) and fire
