Lyrics

Ooh ooa
Only when a lion is already Zion bound
Herb will take him there
Natty dey ya ina ranking victorious crown
Bias if you think I care
Mek them gwan fight
The Rasta man levity down
As parallel to delinquent youth
Ah you push the hot blood them
Fe check my sound
He see I scratching in the same fight for truth

Iration gangster lean pressure cooker
College loan shark pay back government moneymaker
Couple that with taxes and utilities forever
Slave work force
The whole world satta ina ya Jah Jah
Yes I bun fire knowledge gone higher
Earth cycle now a rasta
Earth cycle now a rasta
Oh oo higher, oh oo higher, oh oo higher

Any talent a youth may have
You stay there demean as nothing
If it don’t have the old plantation tags
He is the son of an ill begotten
You rather send your youth away
Unprepared and defenseless
To a waiting den of ravening wolves and financial duress

Iration gangster lean pressure cooker
College loan shark pay back government moneymaker
Couple that with taxes and utilities forever
Slave work force
The whole world satta ina ya Jah Jah
Yes I bun fire knowledge gone higher
Earth cycle now a rasta
Earth cycle now a rasta

And as the ignorance fails to cease
College still a perpetuate them folly
Adapt and compete with high immorality
To meet their standards of likewise depravity
Consciousness in the student exploration
Culminate ina corporate show horse
Strength couldn’t match their bravado
Just because of the money brainwash

Iration gangster lean pressure cooker
College loan shark pay back government moneymaker
Couple that with taxes and utilities forever
Slave work force
The whole world satta ina ya Jah Jah
Yes I bun fire knowledge gone higher
Earth cycle now a rasta
Earth cycle now a rasta

Only when a lion is already Zion bound
Herb will take him there
Natty dey ya ina ranking victorious crown
Bias if you think I care

Iration gangster lean pressure cooker
College loan shark pay back government moneymaker
Couple that with taxes and utilities forever
Slave work force
The whole world satta ina ya Jah Jah
Yes I bun fire knowledge gone higher
Earth cycle now a rasta
Oh oo hey hey
