Lyrics

Natural Mystic

Theres a natural mystic blowing through the air;
If you listen carefully now you will hear.
This could be the first trumpet, might as well be the last:
Many more will have to suffer,
Many more will have to die - dont ask me why.

Things are not the way they used to be,
I wont tell no lie;
One and all have to face reality now.
though Ive tried to find the answer to all the questions they ask.
though I know its impossible to go livin through the past -
Dont tell no lie.

Theres a natural mystic blowing through the air -
Cant keep them down -
If you listen carefully now you will hear.

Theres a natural mystic blowing through the air.

This could be the first trumpet, might as well be the last:
Many more will have to suffer,
Many more will have to die - dont ask me why.

Theres a natural mystic blowing through the air -
I wont tell no lie;
If you listen carefully now you will hear:
Theres a natural mystic blowing through the air.
Such a natural mystic blowing through the air;
Theres a natural mystic blowing through the air;
Such a natural mystic blowing through the air;
Such a natural mystic blowing through the air;
Such a natural mystic blowing through the air.

But spiritual wickedness in igh and low places.
So while they fight you down,
Stand firm and give jah thanks and praises.
cos ini no expect to be justified
By the laws of men - by the laws of men.
Oh, true they have found me guilty,
But through - through jah proved my innocency.

Oh, when the rain fall, fall, fall now,
It dont fall on one mans housetop. remember that:
When the rain fall,
It dont fall on one mans housetop.

They singin: so very much, so very much, oh so very much,
So very, very -
They got so much things to say right now;
Yeah, they got so much things to say.

Hey, but ini - ini nah come to fight flesh and blood,
But spiritual wickedness in igh and low places.
So while, so while, so while they fight you down,
Stand firm and give jah thanks and praises.
Ini no expect to be justified
By the laws of men - by the laws of men.
Oh, hey through jah to prove my innocency,
I told you wicked think they found me guilty.

Pressed on their conscience. oh yeah.
And they live their lives (they live their lives)
On false pretence everyday -

Who always try to eat down the small fish,
Just the small fish.

To materialize their every wish. oh yeah-eah-eah-eah.

Say: woe to the downpressors:
Theyll eat the bread of sorrow!
Woe to the downpressors:
Theyll eat the bread of sad tomorrow!

Waiting In Vain

One, two, one two three

I dont wanna wait in vain for your love;
I dont wanna wait in vain for your love.
From the very first time I rest my eyes on you, girl,
My heart says follow trough.
But I know, now, that Im way down on your line,
But the waitin feel is fine:
So dont treat me like a puppet on a string,
cause I know I have to do my thing.
Dont talk to me as if you think Im dumb;
I wanna know when youre gonna come - soon.
I dont wanna wait in vain for your love;
I dont wanna wait in vain for your love;
I dont wanna wait in vain for your love,
cause if summer is here,
Im still waiting there;
Winter is here,
And Im still waiting there.

Like I said:
Its been three years since Im knockin on your door,
And I still can knock some more:
Ooh girl, ooh girl, is it feasible?
I wanna know now, for I to knock some more.
Ya see, in life I know theres lots of grief,
But your love is my relief:
Tears in my eyes burn - tears in my eyes burn
While Im waiting - while Im waiting for my turn,
See!

I dont wanna wait in vain for your love;
I dont wanna wait in vain for your love;
I dont wanna wait in vain for your love;
I dont wanna wait in vain for your love;
I dont wanna wait in vain for your love, oh!
I dont wanna - I dont wanna - I dont wanna - I dont wanna -
I dont wanna wait in vain.
I dont wanna - I dont wanna - I dont wanna - I dont wanna -
I dont wanna wait in vain.
No, I dont wanna (I dont wanna - I dont wanna - I dont wanna -
I dont wanna - I dont wanna wait in vain) -
No I - no I (I dont wanna - I dont wanna - I dont wanna - I dont
Wanna - I dont wanna wait in vain) -

Its jah love that Im waiting on (I dont wanna - I dont wanna -
I dont wanna - I dont wanna - I dont wanna wait in vain);

One Love / People Get Ready

One Love, One Heart
Let's get together and feel all right
Hear the children crying (One Love)
Hear the children crying (One Heart)
Sayin' give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right
Sayin' let's get together and feel all right
Let them all pass all their dirty remarks (One Love)
There is one question I'd really like to ask (One Heart)
Is there a place for the hopeless sinner
Who has hurt all mankind just to save his own?
Believe me
One Love, One Heart
Let's get together and feel all right
As it was in the beginning (One Love)
So shall it be in the end (One Heart)
Give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right
One more thing
Let's get together to fight this Holy Armageddon (One Love)
So when the Man comes there will be no no doom (One Song)
Have pity on those whose chances grow thinner
There ain't no hiding place from the Father of Creation
Sayin' One Love, One Heart
Let's get together and feel all right
I'm pleading to mankind (One Love)
Oh Lord (One Heart)
Give thanks and praise to the Lord and I will feel all right
Let's get together and feel all right
