Lyrics:

A word from the wise

Don't try to make life on your own

Remember that jah jah by your side

For I was a soul who lost and my life was in dismay

For amongst evil forces in which I came

Guns and ammunition were my chosen way of life

With God fearin people I choose to strive

For all of the lives that are taken they can never be

replaced

But still jah jah chose to remember my face


Chorus:

Though I never lived like he wanted

I was mindful of what he though me

So now I beg and plead I`m on my bending knees

`Cause father you rescue

And I've got the stars to show I barely made it along life's road

`Cause when my life got dark he was the only spot

He was the light at the end of the road 


Verse 2

When I was young boy growin up in august town

We ate from the same pot we were idlings all around

From corner to colour and corner

From rockers to jungle kentyre

Rising to dread heights and river all around

And then the footbal ground became my battlefield

And my life was so surreal

People were fallin` all around

But jah helped me to stand my ground

Only Jah, Only Jah Coud've Helped me to stand my

ground


Though I never lived like he wanted

I was mindful of what he though me

So now I beg and plead I`m on my bending knees

`Cause father you rescue

And I've got the stars to show I barely made it along life's road

`Cause when my life got dark he was the only spot

He was the light at the end of the road 


So now take it from me son

You can change the world today

`Cause livin proof

Livin proof that crime doesn't pay


Though I never lived like he wanted

I was mindful of what he though me

So now I beg and plead I`m on my bending knees

`Cause father you rescued me

And I've got the stars to show I barely made it along life's road

`Cause when my life got dark he was the only spot

He was the light at the end of the road
