Time Come

Album: Life Is A Miracle

5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Time come!
5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Time come!

Well first of all I wanna break it down nice and easy
cause I know certain folk won't be too pleased with me.
Especially when they think for a while
this youth with the smile is turning out to be a wild child.
See I been thinking lately that if I bend any more
God knows they gonna break me.
I give my all and they just fake me
irritate me with those smiles that are so flaky.
From the top they wanna sway me, stray me,
time is now and they delay, delay, delay me,
underrate and underpay me.
Then like some kind of game they wanna play me
like a go-go up and down just like a yo-yo
round and round like a clown called Bozo.
Well I ain't going with that flow no mo' Joe
from now on that's a no, no.
The time has come...

5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Time come!
5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Time come!

I hear some saying "yummy, yummy, mmmm"
but who be putting all that food inna you tummy
aha ha might sound funny but it ain't
I know you only here for the money
you think I ain't got a clue, but I do
believe me I can see straight through you
so tell me who be fooling who
as you continue to bite the same hand that feeds you
every word I say is true I pray
forgive them Father for they know not what they do
"forgive them Father" I beg you do
for they know not what they put me through
huh still I ain't gonna judge (judge not)
and I refuse to hold a grudge
I am gonna stand up strong I'll never budge
even through the rain and the floods
cause the time has come...

5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Time come!
5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Time come!

Forgive them Father!
Old time people say: "Silent rivers run deep."
"Youth man you better look before you leap."
Forgive them Father!
"Beware of the wolves who dress up like sheep."
"And before you sleep, pray The Lord your soul to keep."

Yeah I come to realize it just ain't wise
for a ragamuffin youth to compromise
Jah knows cause after all the hype and the jive
you still gotta struggle to survive
but I'll swallow my pride
and listen to the guide who resides inside
move on with revelation
spread the word to the now generation
so the time has come and I've made my decision
this ain't no ego trip, this is a mission
to spread the word so it can be heard, word!
by those who wanna listen to the truth
the whole truth and nothing but the truth
specially the youth in this age
as we turn the page come on get ready!
The time has come...

5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Time come!
5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Time come!
5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Time come!
5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Time come!
