Jah Jah is real! Jah Jah is real!
Chorus:
Dem gone. so far away
Dem gone. the hole a dem ago regret it one day
(Repeat)
Every day you get up and wish to have a meal
Now you get a cut and wish to have it heal
And still you can not accept that Jah Jah is real
Tell me Mr.Man what's the deal
You say you have everything sign and seel
Thought you won the case but nox you a appeal
You are the one who couldnt hear now you the one to feel
Evidently clear we choppindown your shield
Dem aint going nowhere no time soon
Dem corrupt the east and now dem turn it to the moon
Plantain your garden and wish that it will bloom but still you're singing satan tunes
Chorus:
Dem gone. so far away
Dem gone. the hole a dem ago regret it one day
(Repeat)
Mother earth was meant for man and woman to stay
Me find out nuff a dem drifting away
Children can't even find a place fi play birds can't find no seeds horses no hay
I see the weavers weaving but dem income delay
Still me see dem searching for a brighter day
And now me come fi give it to you right away
Do you hear what I say
Chorus:
Dem gone. so far away
Dem gone. the hole a dem ago regret it one day
(Repeat)
Whapen them?
Give me the mic deh for a moment make me talk to dem
And watch the eden dem a scatter when we walk to dem
And if you know you are not guilty stand up and don't you run
To all my foes and friends
You may live to see today but you nuh know the end
Just read the writings on the wall it's a message we send
And Babylon will never live to stop the rising of Jah son
Chorus:
Dem gone. so far away
Dem gone. the hole a dem ago regret it one day

    So beautiful song, but i believe it's about people who have gone to fight against babylon, and also about people, who have a choice to have a personal war against it "and if you know you are not guilty stand up and don't you run"

    The mighty people of the desert have forgotten who they are, their god has become money and fear. Stand up you fella from god and together we shall rise from the ashes to a new eternity.
