Track Name: Arise - Carlton Shepherd
Reggae music makes me try to do things right
So we say run come! Arise! It’s Roots Reggae time.

Reggae music makes me try

makes me try to do things right

only this wicked system
give me reasons enough to start a fight

So we say run, come, enjoy your time

It no matter if you’re black, oh yeah, no matter if you’re white Ah mi say run, come, enjoy your time
Reggae music can be light for the blind
(So we say)

Run come! Arise! It’s Roots Reggae time
Run come! Arise! It’s Roots Reggae time

So many people still are humble
even they’re living in the concrete jungle.
As you can see they cause no pain.

Yes but they face a daily struggle anyway.

Badness is like cancer

If it takes hold you’ll never be free
 so I give thanks for these people these people I’ve got around me

(Chorus)
Arise! Arise!

I give thanks for this music
giving life a sense

I give thanks for my family
I give thanks for my friends

I just give thanks for them cause
they make me stand as firm as a solid rock tower
I just give thanks for them
 cause
they give me strength, they give me love, they give me power

(Chorus)

See we say run come! Arise! and treat yourself right
A mi say run come! Arise! and make the most of your time
A mi say run come! Arise! and treat yourself right
A mi say run come! Arise! Black, red, yellow or white

See we say run come! Arise! Treat yourself right
Run come! Arise! You were given a life
Run come! Arise! Respect yourself, man Respect yourself woman.
Run come! Arise!

(a mi say)
Run come! Arise! Run come! Arise!
