Caribbean time in motion
Fireflyin' across the ocean
And I can see the future

Caribbean, Caribbean, Caribbean
Caribbean, Caribbean, Caribbean

In the modern potboiler
Anesthetize your mind
And if you won't be a lawyer
You're gonna need an alibi

And if you crave bein' an outlaw
Better to make a plan
For the guns and the promises they feed you
Will drag you in the sand

Nobody come clever enough
Before they get there, move their mainland rough
I'm takin' no direction and I walk-a real slow
For the words of oppression are go, go, go

Caribbean time in motion
Fireflyin' across the ocean
And I can see the future

Barbados to Barcelona
Caribbean time hereunder
I can see the future

Caribbean, Caribbean, Caribbean
Caribbean, Caribbean, Caribbean

If you want a dictator
You best get organized
And if you wan' be a hater
You make trains run on time

And if you crave a good pupil
Bring glory to the schools
And mind your Qs and Ps 'cause an island breeze
Is breakin' all the rules

Caribbean time in motion
Fireflyin' across the ocean
And I can see the future

Antigua to Macedonia
Darwinian time is over
I can see the future

It's no military time
It's an island time

Nobody come clever enough
Before they get there, move their mainland rough
I'm takin' no direction and I walk-a real slow
For the words of oppression are go, go, go

Caribbean time in motion
Fireflyin' across the ocean
And I can see the future

Barbados to Barcelona
Caribbean time hereunder
I can see the future

Caribbean, Caribbean
Caribbean, Caribbean, Caribbean
Caribbean, Caribbean, Caribbean
Caribbean, Caribbean, Caribbean
Caribbean, Caribbean, Caribbean

It's no military time
It's an island time
