"POWER DOWN"

The Prince of Peace will wear the crown,
The war machine will power down.
Like justice riding into town,
The war machine will power down.

Verse 1 [Rap]
Do you ever look around & wonder what we're doin'?
This civilization is falling into ruin.
All of the crime & all of the terror
Crashing this system like a fatal error.
People sowing in greed, then reaping the sorrow,
They grab they need like there's no tomorrow,
Raping the planet for all that it's worth
And never give a second thought it's God's green Earth!
---God's green Earth! ---

The Prince of Peace will wear the crown.

Chorus 1 [sung]
The Prince of Peace will wear the crown,
The war machine will power down.
Like justice riding into town,
The war machine will power down!

Verse 2 [Rap]
A good look at the Book's last Words, my friend,
And you don't have to wonder how it's all gonna end.
Best be prepared, it ain't gonna be pretty
When it's head to the hills & death to the cities.
So full of pollutants, they're turning to mutants,
Television is the teacher, everybody else students.
Nobody gives a damn about the land 'cept for what it's worth,
And what have we got? -We've got famine, we've got dearth,
Children going hungry from the day of their birth.
It's never been worse on God's green Earth!

Bridge [sung]
Nation rising up against nation,
Everybody looking for some salvation.
Jah must rule over every land,
His Kingdom's coming, almost at hand.

Chorus 2 [sung]
The Prince of Peace will wear the crown, [Gonna wear the crown!]
The war machine will power down. [Got to power down!]
Like justice riding into town, [Gonna ride, ride, ride!]
The war machine will power down! [Power down!]Power down!

'Cause it's God's green Earth!
-------
It's God's green Earth!
-------
God's green Earth!
