♫ Lyrics:

Yea
Speaking out to all them on them babylon drugs
Time for a change yea

<Chorus>
Nah take none of ya babylon drugs
Only leads to more sufferation
Lift my mind to meditation naturally
Nah need no chemicals to rule me
Nah take none of ya babylon drugs
Only leads to more sufferation
Lift my mind to meditation naturally
Nah need no chemicals to rule me eh

<Verse>
Ya nah go sell me on no bullshit substance
Don’t tell me of the benefits I know to well the consequence
Say it’s the new thing in the scene well I could care less
Jah blessed I with a healthy mind and I nah gonna destroy it
So ital food, prayer, exercise and meditation ago achieve the mindset that you seeking
Too many people grow dependent on these fucked up drugs all the hype is just a lie and misleading.
So I will work to inspire
the want for knowledge to be the new thing that is desired
start a mental revolution
and look past substances to something pure for the solution

<Chorus>
Nah take none of ya babylon drugs
Only leads to more sufferation
Lift my mind to meditation naturally
Nah need no chemicals to rule me
Nah take none of ya babylon drugs
Only leads to more sufferation
Lift my mind to meditation naturally
Nah need no chemicals to rule me eh

<Verse>
its never too late for change my brother
jah has blessed you with a brand new day to start over
look to him if you feel you don’t have the strength
you still walking this earth for a purpose jah makes no mistakes so
stand strong keep trodding along
the past is the past and is done and long gone
we been blessed with the chance to make change
and I know jah will guide you if you call on his name
so rise above your weakness
the devil will tempt you with your demons
dont underestimate the strength you’ve been given
we’ve been anointed to mash down the heathens, tell em again

<Chorus>
Nah take none of ya babylon drugs
Only leads to more sufferation
Lift my mind to meditation naturally
Nah need no chemicals to rule me
Nah take none of ya babylon drugs
Only leads to more sufferation
Lift my mind to meditation naturally
Nah need no chemicals to rule me eh
