  2. Who is the immigrant

    Who is the immigrant

    Who is the immigrant
    No matter where you come from this is not important
    Who is the immigrant
    Why you fight against your brothermanDifferent countries and different lifes
    But we share the same blood mi nuh tell no lie
    Different colours and different races
    Even know we come from different places
    But this world is there for everyone
    So we must try to live as one
    We better respect mother creation
    Cuz we know seh black is the real foundation
    Too much confrontation
    In each and every nation I find discrimination
    Too much segregation
    Unification united we stay strong

    Who is the immigrant
    Why you fight against your brothermanNo one is illegal so we all born free,
    So fi give the ghetto people dem di opportunity
    You nuh see we need more justice and equality
    Inna every likkle community
    No man is superior so you money cyan mek mi inferior
    I need a spiritual trod not material
    Don’t forget the teachings of his Imperial Majesty
    And this is my message to humanity
    Jah Jah gi wi love abundantly
    with love wi can live for eternity
    Rastafari shine the light for all to see
    Food clothes and shelter fi mi family
    one love one god one destiny
    People from all over
    A try hard just fi get papers
    To go to the land of wood and water
    So they can make live better
    Mi tell Babylon fi move the barriers
    Cause I&I a traveller
    And wi wan to go all over
    From Jamaica to mama AfricaWho is the immigrant
    If we are living in the same land sharing the same sun
