Give me lite to briten up my day
give me health and strength so I can make, my own way.
As the darkness of the nite
fades away, the sun begins to shine,
I see my freedom over yonder.
But they steal it away,
yes they steal it away.
I keep laughing like a clown,
stripped of all identity, I am bare beneath the stares,
but you can't walk with your head on down
for you just can't see,
which way to go (repeat)
I a Rebel, a Rebel
I a born a Rebel
I a Rebel Soul ( repeat )
My captors mesmerize me all to, to bring me down,
still we are the children of the father, and he expects I and I
to push on through, to push on through (repeat)
So the real identity I can find, so JAH, JAH,
I can be free (repeat 3 times)
A rebel, a rebel, a rebel etc. I be a rebel soul...
and the jester will run out of time...
Our backs against the wall, and they don't mind if we fall,
yes they'll use you, and abuse you, try their best to confuse you...
