Why are you so ungrateful
You nuh see that Jah give we life after all
Check yourself before you wreck yourself
Me see that Jah Jah give we life after all
Still none a dem nuh give no thanks at all
Dem think dem a rise me see dem a fall
fall dem a fall - fall dem a fall

How long you want to go run away
Run away from yourself you nuh see that truth ago reveal
and every day you got to pray - well that you fi go do
and make your life one a the real

How you fi expect love and you still a glorifie the gun
How you want clarity if acoke you nuh stop bun
Your dirty lifestyle nuh give you no way to turn
you still nuh realize that you wrong
After you come out of your church you beat your babymother down
and then you tell her youre sorry but your head did full a rum
she couldnt tek your excuse and your flattering tongue
thats why she left you today and still a ask

How long you want to go run away
Run away from yourself you nuh see that truth ago reveal
and every day you got to pray - well that you fi go do
and make your life one a the real

Dem say dem a the dolphin but me see dem a the shark
dem stand ina the spotlight and live in the dark
claim say dem grounded but me see dem a skylark
so to me dem cant talk
In this time and this ages man hafi be smart
think before you talk and watch the road wha you a walk
from you look ina your conscience you cant miss the mark
And make a joyful sound unto the Lord

How long you want to go run away
Run away from yourself you nuh see that truth ago reveal
and every day you got to pray - well that you fi go do
and make your life one a the real

Nuff a dem me see dem can teach
Dem hufi go back a school so a no me dem can teach
A fi dem dirty talk dem call it freedom of speech
Me wonder who dem try reach
Righteousness uno fi go check it
Golong and do some good ina Your life wickedness uno fileft it
cleanheart always will make it
and from you see a chance ina your life
you better take it nuh reject it
