Lyrics:

Check it
Well, easy King Iver ‘pon the control
Don’t you dare disrespect it
It a go rough, it a go rough
It’s gonna be dread, it’s gonna be dread
Ah haa
Bow!

Mek the war start to rass
Me a no one a dem weh see the thing and nah talk (puw!)
Life is like a movie, it move me
But this yah rebel yah no dead inna the last part
Not at all (say dem block it)
Dem say dem block it and me cyaan pass (wha?!)
When me hear da topic deh me start laugh (hahaha)
‘Cause the rebel rocket still a blast off
Man haffi tuff it out at all cost
That a say…

Hold up your head, ’cause it’s gonna be dread
(It’s gonna be dread)
And stay vigilant, stand firm
Don’t you get misled, misled
I a no push over, I and I a soldier (I a soldier)
Dem think it over, tell dem think it over
(Tell dem think it over)
Hold up your head, ’cause it’s gonna be dread
(It’s gonna be dread)

Spiritually, the world is being revolutionized
Ex-generation, yeah man, dem youth yah wise
Nuff people try monopolize and monetize the energies
And you nah go see it if you’re not a wise one inna this battlefield
You waan know how a spiritual tackle feel
Mek sure you got your shield (bow!)
I don’t know enough to know if being black is real
But I know that once you’ve cracked the seal
The beast is cracked its meal, fi real
Mister modern-day Columbus
Kidnap and trap a few a the rebels and throw dem ‘pon the dumb bus
Promise dem milk and honey
It’s funny ’cause only some buss
Nuff get skip and deh ‘pon the ship
And a wait ‘pon dem trip fi turn dust
But I no come fi tek orders
Jah is before Columbus and borders
Jah is the captain, Jah is commander
Govern me own thing, me run the corners
When me corner me don’t mean line
Me mean mind, soul or body and brain
And it’s not a pretty thing, trust me
It tek a lot of discipline
But you know man haffi maintain
My strength (Jah!)

So, hold up your head, ’cause it’s gonna be dread
(It’s gonna be dread)
And stay vigilant, stand firm
Don’t you get misled, misled
I a no push over, I and I a soldier (I a soldier)
Dem think it over, tell dem think it over
(Tell dem think it over)
Hold up your head, ’cause it’s gonna be dread
(It’s gonna be dread)

Child of the silence, I could have turned to violence
I could have been hiding from ??
Instead I wait inside and decided to silence the wildness
Inside my mind I had to dig deeper to find
A brand new meaning of life, I know this feeling is right
Unlike the feeling of fiending for hype
If that’s how you feel, no big deal
Gwaan live your life
Do weh you do fi bring calm in your life
But ‘member the tongue is a sword, so you’re born with a knife
Watch what you say and to whom you pray
Like a thief in the night, inna broad daylight
Babylon gone with our life

So…
Hold up your head, ’cause it’s gonna be dread
(It’s gonna be dread)
And stay vigilant, stand firm
Don’t you get misled, misled
I a no push over, I and I a soldier (I a soldier)
Dem think it over, tell dem think it over
(Tell dem think it over)
Hold up your head, ’cause it’s gonna be dread
(It’s gonna be dread)

Hi there
And you done know we walk the streets without fear enuh
And tell dem this is nothing to do with being artiste
It’s all about, where the heart is
Then tell dem ask themself
Isn’t if funny how, I and I singing about being poor
Becomes the perfect opportunity
For the ones who already have, to get more
Fire!

Aah haa, aa haa
It’s gonna be dread, it’s gonna be dread
Aah haa, aa haa
It’s gonna be dread, so dread
It’s gonna be dread

You are now experiencing the RVlution
It’s gonna, it’s gonna, it’s gonna be
It’s gonna, it’s gonna
It’s gonna be dread, it’s gonna be dread
It’s gonna be dread, it’s gonna be dread
It’s gonna be dread, it’s gonna be dread
