Why are you so ungrateful/
You nuh see that Jah give we life after all/
Check yourself before you wreck yourself/
Me see that Jah Jah give we life after all/
Still none a dem nuh give no thanks at all/
Dem think dem a rise me see dem a fall/
Fall dem a fall - fall dem a fall/
Chorus:
How long you want to go run away/
Run away from yourself you nuh see that truth ago reveal/
And every day you got to pray - well that you fi go do/
And make your life one a the real/
How you fi expect love and you still a glorifie the gun/
How you want clarity if acoke you nuh stop bun/
Your dirty lifestyle nuh give you no way to turn/
You still nuh realize that you wrong/
After you come out of your church you beat your babymother down/
And then you tell her you're sorry but your head did full a rum/
She couldn't tek your excuse and your flattering tongue/
That's why she left you today and still a ask/
Chorus:
How long you want to go run away/
Run away from yourself you nuh see that truth ago reveal/
And every day you got to pray - well that you fi go do/
And make your life one a the real/
Dem say dem a the dolphin but me see dem a the shark/
Dem stand ina the spotlight and live in the dark/
Claim say dem grounded but me see dem a skylark/
So to me dem can't talk/
In this time and this ages man hafi be smart/
Think before you talk and watch the road wha' you a walk/
From you look ina your conscience you can't miss the mark/
And make a joyful sound unto the Lord/
Chorus:
How long you want to go run away/
Run away from yourself you nuh see that truth ago reveal/
And every day you got to pray - well that you fi go do/
And make your life one a the real/
Nuff a dem me see dem can teach/
Dem hufi go back a school so a no me dem can teach/
A fi dem dirty talk dem call it freedom of speech/
Me wonder who dem try reach/
Righteousness uno fi go check it/
Golong and do some good ina Your life wickedness uno fileft it/
Cleanheart always will make it/
And from you see a chance ina your life/
You better take it nuh reject it
