Amagideon (Armageddon)
Bunny Wailer
Album: Blackheart Man

??? It's the Amagideon!
Taking place in a I-ration, in a I-ration.
??? It's the Amagideon!
Taking place in a I-ration.

In the beginning there was but one concept
and that's the concept of I.
Then arose Apollyon the devil (Satan! Satan!)
claiming that it's you and I.
And from that day on there is trouble.
Trouble in the world and the world gone astray.
From that day on.
Trouble in the world and the world gone astray.
We've got wars and rumors of wars.
Trouble in the world and the world gone astray.
Nations rising up against nations.
Trouble in the world and the world gone astray.
Mother against daughter.
Trouble in the world and the world gone astray.
Father against son.
Trouble in the world and the world gone astray.
Little children having children (Trouble! Trouble!).

In this ??? It's the Amagideon!
Taking place in a I-ration, in a I-ration.
??? It's the Amagideon!
Taking place in a I-ration.

I see light fighting against darkness,
righteousness against evil.
Right battling against wrong,
here comes bondaged struggling for freedom.
But have patience I I-dren [bredren] have patience!
Don't be burdened by reasons of tribulations.
Have patience I I-dren have patience!
Remember the call of redemption.
It says:
Blessed art the poor,
they shall inherit the earth.
Blessed art the meek,
they shall have ???.
Them that hunger and thirst after righteousness,
them alone shall be called blessed.

In this ??? It's the Amagideon!
Taking place in a I-ration, in a I-ration.
??? It's the Amagideon!
Taking place in a I-ration.

Walk beyond to the pastors that lead my sheep astray.
Everyone, everyone shall get his pay, yes.
For the gates of hell just could never prevail.
I'd like to say: Babylon failed.
There is one like unto a place of fire.
His name I can tell.
He is conquering and to conquer
the gates of doom and hell.
And life, long life, is His reward,
to them that are good.
As for the heathen, as for the heathen,
in their hearts His name is terrible and dreadful.

In this ??? It's the Amagideon!
Taking place in a I-ration, in a I-ration.
??? It's the Amagideon!
Taking place in a I-ration.
??? It's the Amagideon!
Taking place in a I-ration.
??? It's the Amagideon!
Taking place in a I-ration.

The night is passed the day is come.
I see Jah shining in the shining sun.
