Bob Marley: Spirit Of The Resistance

http://www.prisonplanet.com/bob-marley-spirit-of-the-resista...

We refuse to be
What you wanted us to be;
We are what we are:
That’s the way (way) it’s going to be. If you don’t know!
You can’t educate I
For no equal opportunity:
(Talkin’ ’bout my freedom) Talkin’ ’bout my freedom,
People freedom (freedom) and liberty!
Yeah, we’ve been trodding on the winepress much too long:
Rebel, rebel!
Yes, we’ve been trodding on the winepress much too long:
Rebel, rebel!
Babylon system is the vampire, yea! (vampire)
Suckin’ the children day by day, yeah!
Me say: de Babylon system is the vampire, falling empire,
Suckin’ the blood of the sufferers, yea-ea-ea-ea-e-ah!
Building church and university, wo-o-ooh, yeah! -
Deceiving the people continually, yea-ea!
Me say them graduatin’ thieves and murderers;
Look out now: they suckin’ the blood of the sufferers (sufferers).
Yea-ea-ea! (sufferers)
Tell the children the truth;
Tell the children the truth;
Tell the children the truth right now!
Come on and tell the children the truth;
Tell the children the truth;
Tell the children the truth;
Tell the children the truth;
Come on and tell the children the truth.
‘Cause – ’cause we’ve been trodding on ya winepress much too long:
Rebel, rebel!
And we’ve been taken for granted much too long:
Rebel, rebel now!

Them Belly Full

"Oh, What a tribulation!"

Freedom is not: doing everything you want to.
Freedom is: not having to do what you don't want to do.
~ Joyce Meyer

Cool*))

Let's party!
Thank you!

Love won! Deliverance from Tyranny is on the way! Col. 2:13-15

"Excuse me while I light my spliff"

Marley making some very thoughtful commentary on cannabis v alcohol = Easy Skanking I love the way he says "Herb is a PLAAANT" like "DUH everybody". :)

Here's the song: Easy Skanking

"Herb for my wine, honey for my strong drink"

Freedom is not: doing everything you want to.
Freedom is: not having to do what you don't want to do.
~ Joyce Meyer

Easy Skanking

Easy Skanking!

reminds me of my Vancouver pot festivals.

LOL...

You're looking at the song,

which apparently, two more now dislike, odd...I guess the other rulers of the world feel pressed to chime in now.

Use my first link for the commentary, more people dislike that one :( but I think it has paradigm busting potential, especially his pondering of "Why, why these people who want to do so much good, for everyone....who call themselves governments and this and that....why them say you must not use the herb?"

"You see, then we check that and we cannot find, with us for them to say, 'No you mustn't use it, you mustn't use it because it make you rebel'...

....Against what?"

His pauses speak volumes :)

Freedom is not: doing everything you want to.
Freedom is: not having to do what you don't want to do.

LOL

Lordy Lord. I'm guessing it's the five people really ruling the world that dislike it ;)

Here's a bunch for you LL :)

A collection of my favorites: Let's Get Marleyfied

Then listen to this song for 24 hours straight, I guarantee it'll change ya for the better! ;P

Could You Be Loved

Could you be loved and be loved?
Could you be loved and be loved?

Don't let them fool ya,
Or even try to school ya! Oh, no!
We've got a mind of our own,
So go to hell if what you're thinking is not right!
Love would never leave us alone,
A-yin the darkness there must come out to light.

Could you be loved and be loved?
Could you be loved, wo now! - and be loved?

(The road of life is rocky and you may stumble too,
So while you point your fingers someone else is judging you)
(Could you be - could you be - could you be loved?
Could you be - could you be loved?
Could you be - could you be - could you be loved?
Could you be - could you be loved?)

Get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up, get up
Get up, get up, get up now!!
Eh, We've been sitting down too long
Get up, get up, get up now, get up now, up now eh!

*Don't let them change ya, oh! -
Or even rearrange ya! Oh, no!
We've got a life to live.
They say: only - only -
only the fittest of the fittest shall survive -
Stay alive! Eh!

Could you be loved and be loved?
Could you be loved, wo now! - and be loved?

(You ain't gonna miss your water until your well runs dry;
No matter how you treat him, the man will never be satisfied.)
(Could you be - could you be - could you be loved?
Could you be - could you be loved?)
(Could you be - could you be - could you be loved?)
Say something! (Could you be - could you be loved?)
Say something! Say something! (Say something!)
Say something! Say something! (Could you be loved?)

And a few of my art quote thingies just for good measure:

Say Something!

So ironic...

I'm actually working on a video to this song. I started it on Saturday with a friend. We're going to insert Dr. Paul's freedom message into it. I hope to have it done by the end of this week.

Thanks for posting!!!

What is freedom? Freedom is the right to choose; the right to create for
yourself the alternative of choice. Without the responsibility and exercise
of choice a man is not a man but a member, an instrument, a thing.
-- Archibald Macleish

Nice!

Once you have it done please post here on DP.
I could add it to Liberty music section on my site here:

One of my favorite albums

"Survival" sounds like it could have been recorded last week. Bob Marley is probably more popular now than when he was alive.

Bob's spirit is with us...

:)

Love Liberty Peace!
