Marley has dreams

Posted on 7 mai 2008


Until the philosophy which hold one race superior and another, inferior is finally, and permanently discredited and abandonned
Everywhere is war
Me say war
Until there’re no longer first class and second class citizens of any nation

Until the colour of a man’s skin is of no more significance than the colours of his eyes
Me say war
Until the basic human rights are equally guaranteed to all without regard to race
Dis a war

That until that day
The dream of lasting peace
World citizenship
Rule of international morality
Willl remain in but a fleeting illlusion
To be pursued but never attained
Now everywhere is war, war
And until the ignoble and unhappy regimes
That hold our brothers in Angola, in Mozambic,
South Africa, sub-human bondage
Have been toppled utterly destroyed
Well everywhere is war
Me say war
War in the east
War in the west
War up north
War down south
War, war
Rumours of war
And until that day
The African continent
Will not know peace
We africans will fight it
We find if necessary
And we know we shall win
As we are confidents
In the victory
Of good over evil, good over evil
Good over evil, good over evil…
