Babylon Makes The Rules
Steel Pulse Lyrics


(2) A weh dem a go do when the time comes around
A weh dent a go sek

'cause

My people are in a mess
But nobody wants to know
'cause when you're down and out and oppressed
You've got to fight your battles from the
Lowest of the low
So keep your distance and take your stance,
'cause this could be your utmost chance.

You've had all night and day to
Consider and pray
You've brought fire on my head and
Now you must pay.

CHORUS

Babylon makes the rules
Babylon makes the rules
Babylon makes the rules
Babylon makes the rules
Where my people suffer...

Take Rastaman culture for instance,
Dem think is political joke,
But we people know better then that,
'cause what keeps us together is
Jah Herb that we smoke

I and I know the truth of it all,
'cause we have smashed our heads
'gainst that wall,
And now I seh we must create a scene,
We must recapture our culture
By any means.

CHORUS
Babylon makes the rules
Babylon makes the rules
Babylon makes the rules
Babylon makes the rules
Where my people suffer ...

Count the times we've been let down,
And left us in despair,
And woe betide that evil man,
Who giveth not a care.
You've gotta check yourself just
One more time,
Reassure your mind -
'cause those who are chosen
By the father's hand
Must not get left behind.

Rasta seh - guidance
(4) But Backrah seh different still

Babylon makes the rules but
Jah love will carry I home.

Malgré le temps qui passe, l' émotion reste intacte à la 1ere note de n' importe quel titre!... This band is just... Magic!

lenny dread

How old is this album now? And it still graces my ears on a regular basis to this day! One of the classic reggae albums of all times.

Ray Ad

Steel pulse , one off the best reggae group ever in history ! my favorite speciaal ?

Brian Yates

For me and I'm sure many others, Bob takes the throne... but I gotta put Steel Pulse #2 right behind him. They are so incredible. When I want to hear some real reggae, I thrown some SP on!

Tabla Rasa

The best !

jeremy reeme

The Rolling Stones of the reggae world...as far as longevity...thankfully! (To be clear, not comparing them..they are in a class of their own!)

Ras Bernardo

I had the honor to play with this crowd of Steel Pulse in France and later we met in Jamaica where they also played and was the best thing that happened to me for this band as a major influence of after Bob Marley and many others

Grande Ras Bernardo! Fique na paz de Jesus, guerreiro!

Ras Bernardo vc é um ícone. Cidade Negra com o senhor no vocal é outro nível. O verdadeiro reggae raiz e a banda pioneira do reggae brasileiro.
