I had a dream last night about a village far away
They lived happily and freely, they would sing and dance and play
All of them together they lived only as one
They had no use for weapons and had never seen a gun

Then one day some visitors decided to pass through
They brought with them some friends and their group very quickly grew
They cut down all the trees and cleared out all the land
For this the villagers said they would not stand

Their request for them to leave was met with guns and blades
They imprisoned village leaders and put some of them in graves
The villagers were peaceful and did not know what to do
Their town was taken over and their leaders were gone too

So they all joined up together, their army fierce and strong
But instead of drawing weapons they fought with verse and song

They played the reggae beat, they lifted up their feet
They all stood together and reclaimed their street
