Bunny Wailer – Armageddon lyrics

War, di war, di war!
It's the Armagiddeon.
Taking place in iration, in iration.
War, di war, di war!
It's the Armagiddeon.
Taking place inna iration.

In the beginning, there was but one concept,
And that's the concept of I.
Then arose Apollyon, the Devil
- Satan! Satan! -
Claiming that it's you and I.
And from that day on,
There was trouble in the world,
And the world goin' astray.
From that day on,
Trouble in the world,
And the world goin' astray.
We've got wars, and rumours of wars.
Trouble in the world,
And the world goin' astray... [repeated]
Nations rising up against nations,
Mother against daughter,
Father 'gainst son,
Little children having children,
In this ya war, di war, di war.
It's the Armagiddeon.
Taking place in iration, in iration.
War, di war, di war!
It's the Armagiddeon.
Taking place inna iration.

I see light fighting against darkness,
Righteousness against evil,
Right battling against wrong,
Here comes bondage, struggling for freedom,

But have patience! I Idren, have patience!
Don't be burdened by reasons of tribulations.
Have patience! Idren, have patience!
Remember the call of redemption.

It says: Blessed art the poor,
They shall inherit the earth.
Blessed art the meek,
They shall have a birth.
Them that hunger and thirst after righteousness
Them alone shall be called blessed,

In this ya war, di war, di war.
It's the Armagiddeon.
Taking place in iration, in iration.
War, di war, di war!
It's the Armagiddeon.
Taking place inna iration.

War belong to di pastors
That lead my sheep astray,
Everyone, everyone shall get his pay, yeah.
All the gates of Hell
Just could never prevail.
I'd like to say, Babylon fail.
There is one like unto a place of fire,
His name I can tell.
He is conquering and to conquer
The gates of Doom and Hell.
And life, long life, is His reward
To them that are good.
As for di heathen, as for di heathen
In their hearts, His name is terrible and dreadful.

In this ya war, di war, di war.
It's di Armagiddeon.
Taking place in iration, in iration.
War, di war, di war!
It's di Armagiddeon.
Taking place inna iration.
In this ya war, di war, di war.
It's the Armagiddeon.
Taking place in iration, in iration.
War, di war, di war!
It's the Armagiddeon.
Taking place inna iration.

The night is passed, the day is come
I see Jah shining in the shining sun.
The night is passed, the day is come
I see Jah shining...
