"Sit With My Enemies (47)" - Song lyrics (translator):

I will sit down
an’ talk
with My enemies
from My vantage point
show them
right from wrong
as I’ve got to
BE  FREE.


Leave on their minds
a picture and directive of a one-love society
wherein hunger and pain
deceitfulness and jealousy
can - and will cease to be
as I’ve got to
BE  FREE.


Warn them
if they don’t change their ways
on My persisting return
their rights and dignity
I - WILL - TAKE
without any regard
for life or liberty
as I’ve got to
BE  FREE.


Once more
without apology or fear
determined to be
at the frontline of the conclusion - as
I and I got’ta
BE  FREE - TOTALLY.


Sid-doung a mus~mus tail
long time a warn him
puffin’ smoke in I way
clouding his thoughts with apathy
nah note sey
in I frustrated silence
I dey plan fe
BE  FREE.

De’Obeah whey ole’time Peoples t’ink
couldn’t work pon yuh - well
dat barbie wid de’pin - up its ass
was imported just
fe guzzie~guzzie yuh
suh steady meck de’table turn
sitting you to where I an’I got to
BE  FREE.

Long time story
Anancie dey come back
still vex at you
yuh t’ink Garvey’s teachings
did fall pon deaf ears
or the senseless assignation of Peter
stop broil inna Wi
in life or in death
I’ve got to
BE  FREE.

Once more
without explanation or apprehension
I will sit down
an’ talk
with My enemies
from My vantage point
show them
right from wrong
determined to be
at the frontline of the decree - as
I and I got’ta
BE  FREE
I’ve got to
BE  FREE - TOTALLY.
