Fighting Against Conviction
Bunny Wailer
Album: Blackheart Man

Battering down sentence.
Fighting against conviction.
Battering down sentence.
Fighting against conviction.

I find myself growing in an environment
where finding food is just as hard as paying the rent.
In trodding these roads of trials and tribulations
I've seen where some have died in desperation
to keep...

Battering down sentence.
Fighting against conviction.
Battering down sentence.
Fighting against conviction.

In a family of ten and raised in the ghetto
hustling is the only education I know.
Can't grow no crops in this concrete jungle
a situation like this is getting too tough to handle
to keep...

Battering down sentence.
Fighting against conviction.
Battering down sentence. All day long!
Fighting against conviction.

With a pregnant woman yes and five kids to care for
can't cool my heels I've got to do the town.
Skillful as I am the jailer man is bound to find me
I pray the day will come when I shall be free
from...

Battering down sentence.
Fighting against conviction.
Battering down sentence.
Fighting against conviction.

To be trapped and caught
and taken before judge and angry jury
pleading before men
who seem to have no mercy.
Can't afford to find myself down in the dungeons
I've got to stay free so that my kids won't be...

Battering down sentence.
Fighting against conviction.
Battering down sentence.
Fighting against conviction.

Now a fugitive at large
could this be my destiny?
With no one to care for
the welfare of my family.
In solitude I've found
new faith and hope in this I'll be secure
for mind and soul would soon be weary
just couldn't take no more...

Battering down sentence.
Fighting against conviction. Children hear me when I say!
Battering down sentence. All day long!
Fighting against conviction. Hear me when I sing my song!
Battering down sentence.
Fighting against conviction.
