Prodigal Son
Steel Pulse Lyrics

Woy! Desperation has return
Sodom and Gomorrah no deh yah so!
Woy desperation has return over yonder
Sodom and Gomorrah no deh yah so!

Wild one, you are like the Prodigal Son yeah
And if you're the Prodigal Son, my friend
Then you're the one, you
Left taking your only possession
Your culture
To enter a world known for hacklings
In abundance, yeah
The hustlers of life
Have hooked and drained you from the man
Form the man that you used to be, turn your back on us
Return Rastaman where you came from
The land of your forefathers

Reaching the gates with your two long hands
Searching out for clean water
Wild one

Prodigal come forth and rejoice with your voice
To the heavens
Chant some song, chant some song
Prodigal come forth and repent
Rastafari sins forgiven

Woy! Desperation has return

One has returned without one's soul
And has squandered all his possessions
Let us cleanse your body now
From your service to the swine, because
You've been dead and now to anoint your head
With wisdom, knowledge and over standing
A lesson has been taught unto you my friend
Time for a feast and rejoicing
Wild one

Woy! Desperation has return
Prodigal has returned to his culture
Prodigal has returned give him water
Prodigal has returned, has returned

Prodigal Son how sweet if it could come true
You being gone too long you being gone too wrong
The only way back is if you come all new
Caution the road is too slippery and you got be strong

There is still TIME still TIME still TIME
Catch it fast before it closes on you NINE
You have nothing to fear but fear itself like the DIME
Whatever you do do not forget that criss cross LINE
