Testo della canzone Hardcore (Jah9), tratta dall'album 9

Hardcore - Jah9

Hardcore, you cannot claim no victory
Till yuh heart pure and your mind
'Bout dem hardcore, when a Selassie I alone
Can mek dem heart sure at this time
Hardcore, you cannot claim no victory
Till yuh heart pure and your mind
'Bout dem hardcore, when a Selassie I alone
Can mek dem heart sure at this time

At ease is peace we seeking
So all a try fi disturb a distance we keeping you away
From the treasure that you're sniffing 'round
To take (that you're sniffing 'round to take)
But you cannot penetrate
So even if you find the yard
You cannot breach the gate
Leaving you waiting in vain and love you all the same

But yuh nuh heard core, yuh cannot claim no victory
Till yuh heart pure and your mind
'Bout dem hardcore, when a Selassie I alone
Can mek dem heart sure at this time
Hardcore, you cannot claim no victory
Till yuh heart pure and your mind
'Bout dem hardcore, when a Selassie I alone
Can mek dem heart sure at this time
Sip what you brew
Brew what you sip
Human vulture keep the poison from your lip
The fruits of the youths off strictly organic
Community immunity from every politician
Breaking the addiction
Brothers finally, find freedom
To show love within the family
Real power generating
Potential creating
The inevitability of masculinity
Hardcore, you cannot claim no victory
Till yuh heart pure and your mind
'Bout dem hardcore, when a Selassie I alone
Can mek dem heart sure at this time
Hardcore, you cannot claim no victory
Till yuh heart pure and your mind
'Bout dem hardcore, when a Selassie I alone
Just Selassie I alone
Haile Selassie I alone, yeah (Haile Selassie I alone)
(A just Selassie I alone) a just
Selassie I alone, Haile Selassie I alone
Now the Iyata can't compromise the link
Before she open up the star gate
She really haffi think
Is it just desire, what will it require?
Do you have the strength to hold it
If you let it reach the brink?
Are playing a game or do you know your role?
Are you willing to wager your soul?
Will you be a victim beaten?
Stranded at the barrier
Or bravely ascending to warrior, to goddess?
To hardcore, a she a claim the victory
'Cause her heart pure and her mind, eh!
Hardcore, Selassie I alone a mek heart sure (Selassie I alone)

Eh! Hardcore, you cannot claim no victory
Till yuh heart pure and your mind
Bout dem harcore when a Selassie I alone, a just Selassie I alone

The problems which confront us today are unprecedented
They have no counterparts in human experience
Men search the pages of history for
Solutions, for precedents, but there are none
This, then, is the ultimate challenge
Where are we to look for our survival?
For the answers to the questions which have never before been posed?

We must look, first, to Almighty
Who has raised man above the animals and
Endowed him with intelligence and reason
And we must look into ourselves, into the depth of our souls
We must become something we have never been
And for which our education and
Experience and environment have ill-prepared us
We must become bigger than we have been
More courageous, greater in spirit, larger in outlook
We must become members of a new race, overcoming petty prejudice
Owing our ultimate allegiance not to nations
But to our fellow men within the human community
