Too many times this system can break us down
And take us off Jah path of creation
Man I know just as well as anyone
It's Trevy James

Just say, Selassie I, guide I way
Cause nuff of them rather see I&I go astray
Help me speak my truth right now before it's too late
Each day that I wake, give me strength to create
Selassie I guide I way
Cause Babylon rather see I&I go astray
Help me speak my truth right now before it's too late
Even when the masses move the opposite way

If I could step up in here truthfully
I've spent my whole life seeking sense of community
This human race be treatin one another brutally
Do anything to put dividers between you and me
They speak so foolishly, efforts work out fruitlessly 
Put man under scrutiny, strip him of ingenuity 
Mold him into something to service his country usefully
Care less bout his destiny, that's not how they're doin me cause
Longtime I been lookin, lookin forward far from Babylon
Longtime I been puttin pen to paper on so many songs
Longtime I been fightin the struggles that seem to come along
Put in place to make we strong, all a part of Jah Jah plan
Longtime I been facin these trials & tribulations
That indirect education that's leaving my mind racin
Stay focused on this creation in nuff iterations
Pray Jah Ras Tafari see through I&I patience, so I say

Selassie I, guide I way
Cause nuff of them rather see I&I go astray
Help me speak my truth right now before it's too late
Each day that I wake, give me strength to create
Selassie I guide I way
Cause Babylon rather see I&I go astray
Help me speak my truth right now before it's too late
Even when the masses move the opposite way

If I could step up in here truthfully
I hit a point where I was coping with it stupidly
Most these nights out gettin drunk up at the brewery
Mission statement embracing that promiscuity
There's no immunity, quickly build up fluency 
Fully knowing it could lead anyone to their eulogy
Kinda hard respecting this life for all its beauty
When each and every community's, nowhere close to unity cause
Longtime I was raised in the system, sat in the classroom and
Learned the made up history sugar coatin this capture land
Tryin hard to figure out where I&I stand
When one ancestor was damned, at the other one's hands
Them wan fi cheat and deceive us to ultimately defeat us
And they know they can achieve this, them have nuff ways to mislead us
Guided by these false leaders, all these corrupted extremists
And we all believe it, that dirty Babylon need fi leave it

So I say, Selassie I, guide I way
Cause nuff of them rather see I&I go astray
Help me speak my truth right now before it's too late
Each day that I wake, give me strength to create
Selassie I guide I way
Cause Babylon rather see I&I go astray
Help me speak my truth right now before it's too late
Even when the masses move the opposite way

Well insecurity and self doubt held me back many a time
Always knew the purpose was to create and rhyme but I
Felt the phantom gatekeepers always deny
No longer for I&I...

Cause I've seen Bobo Hill, been to the top of Pinnacle
Reasoned with them bredren an experience so pivotal
Raised through Jah Jah music the emotional and physical
Power is always visible, guidance so unequivocal 
Back in time I was sittin through life in ways so typical 
Babylon tried fi mold I to be so unoriginal
Shoulda kept a different crew, maybe better off skippin' school
Cause this Player of Instrument can't be so analytical ha
Ras Trevy taught me to embrace creation
Jacob Miller showed me the healing of the nation
Aswad kept me roots rockin non stop
Sizzla Kalonji kept me solid as a rock uh
Watched the cream of the crop, up at the top
Too long to not be welcomed with open arms when I knock
So wicked with tracks I drop, stay bubblin' hard like my pops
Was once lost, but found now thanks to power of Jah, yes I UH!

Selassie I, guide I way
Cause nuff of them rather see I&I go astray
Help me speak my truth right now before it's too late
Each day that I wake, give me strength to create
Selassie I guide I way
Cause Babylon rather see I&I go astray
Help me speak my truth right now before it's too late
Even when the masses move the opposite way
