lyrics

I'm gonna smoke til my eyes them red like fire
Read a couple page and chant out two prayer,
For the weak for the poor the long time sufferer
The one when evening come they can't find no supper,
The youths them have to bathe up in a cold water,
A family getaway is a non-starter
Every day is grim and like in get carter...

And though times hard and money short there'll be sunshine in the face of the people,
Whether they are walkathon or have corn to put gas in their vehicle(s),
And though times hard and money short consumer goods are produced by poor people,
When nuff of them are walkathon and have no corn to put gas in their vehicle(s)

So for these words these sounds these powers I'm giving you my – thanks and praise,
Giving me the strength to believe that there'll be – brighter days
These words these sounds these powers I'm giving you my – thanks and praise,
Give me strength and conviction – to go on

Me nah go drink up too much of the firewater cos it's a deeper vibration I&I ah call for,
As a herbsman I smoke and meditate like Rasta,
For there's a whole heap of questions and and I want some answer(s),
Why a station inna space and no cure for cancer?
How much more have to dead to put oil in a tanker?
Why man locking up for weed but them ah free the banker?

While times hard and money short consumer goods are produced by poor people,
When nuff of them are walkathon and have no corn to go and put gas in their vehicle(s),
Remember times when money short and there's much less fortunate people,
And nuff of them are walkathon they have no corn to go put gas in their vehicle(s)

So for these words these sounds these powers I'm giving you my – thanks and praise,
Giving me the strength to believe that there'll be – brighter days,
For these words these sounds these powers I'm giving you my – thanks and praise,
Their giving me the conviction I need to move on.

We nah go take none of the sympathy neither,
You don't see nuff ghetto youths ah turn riddim rider,
Courthouse and jailhouse them sick of lock up inside of,
I don't condone the badness or the things that ain't right sir,
Do things to make your family proud your future brighter,
Here what I'm saying my friend just push up you lighter – and smoke til your eyes them red like fire...

Although times and money short there'll be sunshine in the face of the people,
Whether they are walkathon or have corn to go put gas in their vehicle(s),
And when times hard and money short consumer goods are produced by poor people,
And nuff of them are walkathon and have no corn to go put gas in their vehicle(s)

So for these words these sounds these powers I'm giving you my thanks and praise,
They're giving me the strength to believe that there'll be – brighter days,
These words these sounds these powers I'm giving you my – thanks and praise,
They're giving me the strength and conviction to move on,
So for these words these sounds these powers I'm giving you my thanks and praise,
They're giving me the strength to believe that there'll be – brighter days,
These words these sounds these powers I'm giving you my – thanks and praise,
They're giving me the strength and conviction to move on,

Giving me the strength.... The conviction...
Said I'm gonna smoke....
And chant out two prayers....

Ad-lib.
