the last song you played on repeat, a current obsession, etc...

for my money, this far surpasses the original.

    Sizzla - Eastern Mountain

    Chorus:
    It's getting red now
    Oh mamma yeh, oh mamma yeh
    It's getting dread now
    Home and away, home and away
    It's getting red now
    Oh mamma yeh, oh mamma yeh
    It's getting dread now
    Home and away, home and away

    Verse 1:
    The Eastern Mountain, yeh
    You can reach if you give it all your vibes
    Like the water from the fountain, yow
    I tell you do good that's all there is to life.
    Knowledge is golden, yow
    You can reach if you really decide
    Like the water from the fountain, yow
    Tell you do good that's there is to life.
    I will let no one stop you from beeing strong
    Fi earth likewise a fi yuh opinion
    What's your feelings
    Check yourself know yuh position
    When you flatter you dem with the flattering tongue
    The enemies mob the heathens come inna gang
    Emperor Selassie I is the protection
    Years of servility, tears drop like bombs
    Night and day never free without dawn
    Check life: well a pure slavery deh gwaan
    So mi come fi tell the people that the child was born.
    Him a the government, Selassie I the Ethiopian
    Strike to the devil with the education:
    Proper, literate, to uplift the nation
    Life: Thought: I hurt. I belong.

    Chorus

    Verse 2:
    The Eastern Mountain, yow
    You can reach if you give it all your vibes
    Like the water from the fountain, yow
    Wanting to see what's on the other side
    Knowledge is golden, yow
    You can reach only if you decide
    Like the water from the fountain, yow
    Rasta man nah tell the ghetto youths them survive
    Here the youths them crying
    They were beingpushed aside
    Only the best was proof enough to pulverise
    The hopes, the understanding
    That we still nah go slide
    Children come together Rasta Far I deh rise
    Better fly we together I survive
    People of the colour must always be wise
    From the depth of the valley up onto the sky
    Even to be lucky police stop all the crimes
    We nuh want nuh confusion round Rasta Far I
    We bun the anxiety courageously smile, yow
    Babylon we know you profile

    Chorus

    Verse 3:
    The Eastern Mountain, yow
    You can reach only if you got the vibes
    Like the rivers and the fountain, yow
    I tell you do good and hail Rasta Far I
    Knowledge is golden, yow
    You can reach if you really decide
    Like the rivers and the fountain, yow
    Tell you be good and open up all your eyes
    Oh, oh surely the omnipotent
    Yours truly how Ras recommend
    Tell Selassie King from the Ishent
    Let the power of the empress guide the resident
    Oh, the people from the south shall deal
    With another, nah tell yu no doubt.
    Commune with the western praises and shout
    The eastern marching thy route

    CHORUS
