i got the urge to write down some text passages from songs i have been influenced by...

Without Jah, Nothin' by p.o.d.
Black and white people are one love
Jah love, Jah love, Jah love, yeah yeah yeah
Without Jah you're nothing
Without Jah you're nothing
Without Jah you're nothing
And with Jah you're everything
And with a Jah something
And with a Jah something

Jesus loves you
Jesus Christ loves you
Jesus Christ loves you
Jesus Christ he'll love you
###
Downfall Of Christ by heaven shall burn
I am the Lord, your God, kneel before me and pray
Forbidden acts of evil forced upon people in different ways
Suffering children preyed upon by the man in black
Through the years you look the other way
Here lies the victim of a vicious attack

It’s the downfall of Christ
You see him nailed to the cross
It’s the downfall of Christ
Betrayed by all of us

If only you will forget I am the one you called
Suppression of a different kind, as you die you call for your God
Seeing me as I bleed before you, you’ll be the one to cry
Looking down the roads towards a miracle
My God, he cannot save my life

It’s the downfall of Christ
You see him nailed to the cross
It’s the downfall of Christ
Betrayed by all of us

Sinners - benevolence is not in your soul
(Our) healers - temptation has led you astray
Judas - using religion for war
Pestilents (persuasion) – it’s their holy holocaust

Centuries of merauders fighting in the name of their gods
People dying everyday, hell has opened it’s doors
Manipulation for murder, crucified on the cross
Revel in victims blood, revival of their religious wars

It’s the downfall of Christ
You see him nailed to the cross
It’s the downfall of Christ
Betrayed by all of us

I Luv I Jah by bad brains
Walking down babylon lane. Trying to live my life in peace. Two young men call me not their brother, try to make me feel ashamed. But I luv I jah yeah, he tell me not to be that way.I luv I jah, yeah, I gotta keep my PMA. My lovely sister, judge me by my closthes, yeah. Only to learn to her mistake not everyone's alike. We're not all a uptight. Ah no fuss no fight. Cool that way, cool that way. I luv I jah.
###
Dreadlocks The Time Is Now by the gladiators
That I was walking on a street of gold
The street that I saw
Is where I and I should have been
So let's unite and stand up and fight for our rights
Dreadlocks, the time is now
Stand up fight for your rights
Or you ain't gonna get your culture man
Roots natty, don't give up - hold on
If I am wrong
Be not afraid to say so
Is there any difference between the human race ?
We are all of one skin
Same blood, same soul
But there are some who think
Dreadlocks don't count
###
Jah Works by the gladiators
Jah works, Jah works, Jah works Jah works

I'm a man of fire
None of my doings shall never go wrong

Jah hear I when I cry
Jah hear I when I cry
'Cause I'm a great meditator
Yes, I'm a great meditator

Wicked a roar like a roaming lion
Trying to destroy thy sons and daughters


Although I trad thru the valley of Babylon
Although I trad thru the valley of those wicked man
I will fear no evil for thou art with me from the beginning
Till this day on
On an' on an' on

Enterfaith (Album Version) by soulfly

Now...
Forever and ever without an end
Follow your heart, never pretend
The last will be first, it has been said
So I say

Enterfaith
Deeper and deeper in every way
Enterfaith
Penetrates the wound again
Enterfaith
Deep and deeper everyday
Enterfaith
Penetrates the wound again

Faith...On and on
Faith...To carry on
Faith...No transgression
Faith...Is a weapon

Faith is a weapon

Prophecy (With Sample) (Album Version) by soulfly
I see the Red Sea part in front of me
I see the desert clouds bleed above me
I'm with the prophets on the final destiny
We'll fight the heathens and the ghost enemy

This is the prophecy
This is the prophecy

I see the money beggars on the last temptation
We're marching now through the devastation
I'm with the prophets on a mission of salvation
Cities falling, nations falling nations

This is the prophecy
This is the prophecy

I see the new millennium tribal warfare
I see them blind sheep going nowhere
The new exodus, just like they said
I see the crown of thorns, you know I was there

This is the prophecy
This is the prophecy

I see the times in this armaggideon
I see the flag of the conquering lion
I must reach the mountains of Zion
I'm with the prophets and the prophecy goes on

This is the prophecy
This is the prophecy

New millennium tribal war
###
Babylon by soulfly
Desolation...
Annihilation...
Decapitation...
Seperation...
Murder nation...
Sufferation...
Confrontation...
Retaliation...
Mutilation...
Devastation...
Confrontation...
Too much tension...

On and on and on and on...
On and on and on..
Inna babylon
On and on and on and on...
On and on and on..
###
A Fire In Babylon by shadows fall
A fire burns in Babylon a spark will soon ignite
Burning flame of Jah light a fire that will purify
Wipe away the city's lies reducing fortunes into ash
Tear apart your useless mask
Nowhere left for you to hide
Damned for your foolish pride
Chant down Babylon Chant down Babylon

Revelations time is now
Your world will crumble to the ground
Final judgement now has come this is armageddon

A eulogy for the modern man enslaved and devoured
By the strength of it's demands
A eulogy for the modern man hide your head and cower
Or be struck down where you stand

To advance in truth and rights
To advance in love and light
The path of righteousness is leading
The songs of I and I are pleading
In the grace pf Mt. Zion
With the strength og a lion
All barriers shall be broken
All heart alight and open
A fire burns in Babylon your world will burn
A fire burns in Babylon you world is burning down
###
The Outernationalist by thievery corporation
Jah Rastafari
One heart
One love
One moon
One earth
One light
The almighty
Jah Rastafari
Unfathomable
Master builder of creastion
Jah rastafari
Who stands to rule and reign worldwide
Ras mean king
Tafari mean head creator
Supreme supremacy
Ruler among the mighty
He touched and lightning scorched
Rebuked the wind
And chastised thunder
The almighty
Him alone the only international field marshal
Helaie-I Selasie
###
The Richest Man in Babylon by thievery corporation
There is no quidance in your kingdom
Your wicked walk in Babylon
There is no wisdom to your freedom
The richest man in babylon
Your beggars sleep outside your doorway
Your prophets leave to wonder on
You fall asleep at night with worry
The saddest man in Babylon
The wicked stench of exploitation
Hangs in the air and fingers on
Beneath the praise and admiration
The weakest man in Babylon
There is no hope left in your kingdom
Your servants have burned all their songs
Nobody here remembers freedom
The richest man in Babylon
###
Set Your Eyes To Zion by p.o.d.
Set your eyes to zion
Jah jah people ride on

Forgive them lord, for they not know
That what they do, people blame it on you
Cant understand why dem so mad
Dem heart get cold, empty with no soul
Ive begun to search of one
Giver of life, I and I recognize
To be with you, forever Ill be with you
In paradise, zion I set my eyes
Tell me mr. deadman?
Do you have the answer?
How do you get to heaven?
Do you have the answer?
Hey mr. deadman
Ill tell you if you want to know,
How you can get to heaven?
Believe in I jah jah son
###
Breathe Babylon by p.o.d.
(...)
I see you people babylon and on and on
Graven images, golden idols and false icons
I'm seeking wisdom like Solomon
But my antenae keeps on picking up evil transmissions
At headquarters I receive my mission
Blow up the ruler of the air like nuclear fission
So I analyze my weapons, laser guided rifles that shoot spiritual wisdom
I think I see enemy warriors,
Fragile heathens tryin' to run stuff like mayors
So with brotha's that snuff punks,
I set up time bombs to destroy the strong holds of Babylon
Babylon Breathe Babylon
(...)
We be tribes under grace, a righteous minority
Decadent culture make you forget your spiritual priority
Back down by the movement, soldiers who will serve ya
Open to be used by God, destroy you like Medo-Persia
Jewel of all kingdoms, live evil, purified Hurrah take you down
Don't look back, overthrown you like Sodom and Gomorrah arm of the law
Guilty of all crimes I be like the great Prophet Isiah
Predict your fall over 150 times, got rhymes you could never use
For the purpose you be using, I'll dance over your fields
Present day Iraq still lies in ruins lies,
Schemes, backstab persuasions bumrushed
Get crushed by us, this rescue invasion
###

Looks Is Deceiving by the gladiators
So me give it to ya in a parable :
Old time people them used to say :
When short mouth tell you you can't hear
so when long mouth tell you ya a go feel it, feel it
You talk too much, you will pay for what you don't eat
Goat never know the use of him tail till the butcher cut it off
Goat never know the use of him tail till the butcher cut it off

Looks is deceiving, man - don't underrate no man
Looks is deceiving, yeah - don't underrate no man
Don't watch the tool, the work it can do
Watch the man that behind it
The man laugh first, him nuh laugh
yet the man laugh las', get it full....
