revolution lyrics – bob marley

revelation reveals the truth – revelation.
(revolution, revolution, revolution – oooo-doo-doo-doo-doo)
(revolution – oooo-doo-doo-doo-doo)

it takes a revolution (revolution) to make a solution;
too much confusion (aaa-aaah), so much frustration, eh!
i don’t wanna live in the park (live in the park);
can’t trust no shadows after dark (shadows after dark), yeah-eh!
so, my friend, i wish that you could see,
like a bird in the tree, the prisoners must be free, yeah! (free)

never make a politician (aaa-aaah) grant you a favour;
they will always want (aaa-aaah) to control you forever, eh!
(forever, forever)
so if a fire make it burn (make it burn, make it burn)
and if a blood make ya run (make ya run, run, run),
rasta de ‘pon top (aaa-aaah), can’t you see? (doo-doo-doo-doo)
so you can’t predict the flop. eh-eh! (doo-doo-doo-doo)

we got lightning (lightning), thunder (thunder),
brimstone (brimstone) and fire – fire (fire, fire);
lightning (lightning), thunder (thunder),
brr-brimstone (brimstone) and fire – fiyah – fire – fiyah!
(fire, fire)

kill, cramp and paralyze all weak at conception;
(aaa-aaah, doo-doo-doo-doo)
wipe them out of creation (creation), yeah-eah! (creation)
wa-jah, jah, jah! wa-jah, jah, jah! (creation)
wa-jah, jah, jah! (creation)

oh! let i’es is i’es (i’es), in i’es is black (i’es),
in i’es is red (i’es), in i’es is dread.

let righteousness cover the earth
like the water (aaa-aaah) cover the sea, yeah! yeah!

lightning (lightning), doo-doo-doo (thunder),
doo-doo-doo (brimstone), doo-doo-doo (fire, fire);
a lightning (lightning), thunder (thunder),
brimstone (brimstone) and fire. /fadeout/
