Trodding the other day 
On journey so far away to make a 
living to see what I could achieve 
I saw city state 
Places of all human races 
They are standing in front of I and I 
Working scientifical 
advancement to corrupt the mind 
Babylon in their little way 

Thinking of all the benefits there of 
I and I humble lion chant Mount Zion 
I am at a pace 
Why you scrabbing my face 
Some must see they can earn 
Cause I and I Black Uhuru 
stand fine burn 

Brimstone burn brimstone burn 

Trodding the other day on a 
journey so far away away 

Trying to make a living to see 
what I can achieve 
For the benefits of my grief 
I saw men worklng seientifical 
advancement to corrupt the mind 
Babylon is their little way 
Brimstone burn brimstone burn 
Everything is trial 
Brimstone burn brimstone
