Selah Lyrics

Intro:

They want us to stay blind as a bat
While they move sly as a fox
Dat dem want
Oh bwoy
Dat dem wany
Yes sah
I tell u few people can see it
Many are blind to it
A change is on the way things will no longer be the same
Oh no
Hear me now

Verse:

All eyes on America
People and places want to be just like America
And I can’t understand why
When u have beautiful places like Dubai‎ (ah yea)
Lies and propaganda ‎they speak of Africa
I trod from Nairobi to Addis Ababa and find
Find the truth for myself
The world is more beautiful than you know
From Cape Town to Accra to Legos
So much beauty my eyes behold
So much in school they have never told us
Like how much slaves died on Gori Island in Senegal
And how much never reach Caribbean islands‎ (whoi)
The slave trade was wickeda than you know
And now they return to Africa for the gold
And diamonds
While they make it seem like the land is just full of poverty yea
And hungry belly, what a terrible conspiracy
Now we say

Chorus:

Selah
There goes the end of an era
No more we are blind to the truth bout yah
I and I stronger than ever
JAH know we say
Selah
There goes the end of an era
No more we are blind to the truth bout yah
I and I stronger than ever
SELAH

Verse:

I cry for Jamaica
It hurt my heart fi see my people of Jamaica
Don’t realize seh reggae music is the savior
Preserving the knowledge of our former selves
Check di yute dem inna Gambia
If you neva know
You would ah feel dem born and raise inna Jamaica
To how dem love di culture, Rastafari culture
Dem live di livity as well yea
Earth is the Lords and fullness there of
So I have the right to live where I’m loved
And celebrated
No hate can keep me from anywhere in the world
Now we say

Chorus:

Selah
There goes the end of an era
No more we are blind to the truth bout yah
I and I stronger than ever
JAH know we say
Selah
There goes the end of an era
No more we are blind to the truth bout yah
I and I stronger than ever
SELAH

Rap:

What if I told u ancient stories
Was much simpler than they made it seem
Would you trod it over Zion way
See how they doing the things over there
And if you thought there’s something to fear

Just some time back when you was a little tat
And they said don’t do this or child don’t that… Please
Maybe you said you do, maybe you said you don’t
But then you figured it out so life moved on
Yeah dem be da days of innocent fun
Now we living with purpose in Jah Kingdom
What’s da prob? Whatcha sayin? What’s the beef cuz?
The future is determined t‎oday so take a trip son

Chorus:

Selah
There goes the end of an era
No more we are blind to the truth bout yah
I and I stronger than ever
JAH know we say
Selah
There goes the end of an era
No more we are blind to the truth bout yah
I and I stronger than ever
SELAH
