Grounds

Midnite

If it please the most high to give strength,
If it please the most high to give talent and abilities
It would be simply public relations
In keeping the neighborhood tight
Itís got meaning, itís got placement and feeling
Yeah, wow ohhhh, ayyy, oh yeahh
If it please the most high, to give insight
Implementation, to give improvisation, perfection
If it pleeease the most high,
to give to the willing and the humble and the open to do them right, yes
If it pleeeeease the most high, that whom he should bless
If it pleeeeeease the most high, then who should disprove?
The grounds the holy grounds, the feeding place, sincerity
Donít be running this thing like congress
The grounds, the feeding place, the cleansing heart
The pointed I, at self, to look
If it please the most high, if it pleeeeease the most high
to give it to the youth, incubate in it
For all I know, principle to be ______
For all I know, to be guidelines for self
For all I know, to refuse it
For all I know
Ayyy the grounds, the feeding place
Sincerity the grounds
Like how dey sayin caught on what grounds, on what basis
The fulcrum the base, rudimentary in the grounds
Rudimentary root in the grounds, see root crude like oil
The grounds, the holy place
Ahhh ayyyÖ.
The grounds, here is the grounds
Babylon canít, canít come honor we root
Dem canít, canít come believe man history
Dem canít conquer our genealogy
But the arrogance of the body is just vanity and false density
But still dem canít, if we choose Selassie we know seh dat dem canít
Penetrate rasta love dem canít, canít ______________
We know dem canít, dem theyself a needy
Dem, canít, reach to the pinnacle dem love they canít
Because dem nah love the creation dem canít
Penetrate the rastaman armor dem canít
