Sacrifice

Gregory Isaacs

I was given as a sacrifice
To build a black man's hell an' a white man's paradise
But now that i know
It's time i've got to go, lord
The proceedings seem so painful
And so slow, slow, slow
The proceedings seem so painful
And so slow

I have gathered all the wealth
From all over the world
Beating chains an' shackles
Just to help them make them kings, duke and earl
But now that i know
It's time i've got to go lord
The proceedings seem so painful
And so slow, slow, slow
The proceedings seem so painful
And so slow

What i give is what i will take
I gave love - i won't take no wait
I say : love love love - iniversally
Love love love

I was given as a sacrifice
To build a black man's hell an' a white man's paradise
But now that i know
It's time i've got to go, lord
The proceedings seem so painful
And so slow, slow, slow
The proceedings seem so painful
And so slow

What i give is what i will take
I gave love - i won't take no wait
I say : love love love - iniversally
Love love love - itinually
Love love love
That is what i give
And that is what i take
