Education is the silver key
you can be the change the big man says he cannot see
what is clearly printed on the page
up in the big house made by all the slaves

blind eyes, thats what the congressmen turn
only care about what dem earn
money money
thats what society learns
but deep in everyone a fire burn

freedom... the only way to learn
freedom... its my main concern
freedom... i yearn to burn

babylon brings the I down
zion makes the big man frown
I and I worship only the crown
to Ras Tafari I bow


blind eyes, thats what the congressmen turn
only care about what dem earn
money money
thats what society learns
but deep in everyone a fire burn

After reading the lyrics, I think I can reasonably assume that they'd be put to a reggae-esque song. The lyrics themselves definitely cover topics seen before in reggae (rebelling against the downpressor, freedom, the greed of the wealthy, etc) so I can't say that the themes expressed here are original. The good thing about reggae is that its the mood and groove that really facilitates the message of the words, or they do for me at least. The great reggae artists recycle many themes and images but its the feel and aesthetic quality of the music that carries the most weight and drives those themes and images home. Basically what I'm trying to say is that if you put these words to a nice groove, you'll have a pretty good reggae song on your hands.
