Sizzla – Mockeries & Phrase lyrics

Intro pt. 1 Ah-ah-ah, bl-, blessings flow
Intro pt. 2 The reason for life is love
And even before there was
My hands stretch forth up above

Verse 1 pt. 1 Is true
Babylon where do you go from here?
Rasta found you guilty on the points of care
Atomic energy fuel yuh ego cheer
Manufacture machine based upon yuh nuclear
Yuh human from the living drop the warfare

Can't be recognized from the clothes you wear
Yet we nah judge yuh seam dem, neither yuh tear
