It Was Written

[Intro: Capleton]
Blazin’...
 
Blazin’...
 
[Chorus: Stephen Marley & Capleton]
And it was written up in the Book of Life
That a man shall endure forevermore [x2]
 
[Verse 1: Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley]
Well, did you know di pen is stronger than di knife
And they can kill you once, but they can't kill you twice?
Did you know destruction of di flesh is not di ending to life?
Fear not of di anti-Christ
Did you know that I exist before di Eart'
And did you know my eyes are windows to di world?
Did you know you can't go a-Zion and a-wear Jheri curls?
Can't tell di boys from di girls
Your body's just a vehicle transportin' your soul
It's what's inside the people is beauty to behold
Fear not of evil
Everyday dem flesh, it grow old
Changes of the times take di toll
 
[Chorus: Stephen Marley & Capleton]
And it was written up in the Book of Life
That a man shall endure forevermore
(Weh di man say)
And it was written up in the Book of Life
That a man shall endure forevermore
 
[Verse 2: Capleton]
The one ya name
Fear is in the eyes of the beholder
And love is in the presence of the love maker
Life is in the words of the comforter
Endure much longer, live much longer
Fear is in the eyes of the beholder
And love is in the presence of the love maker
Life is in the words of the comforter
Endure much longer, live much longer
 
[Verse 3: Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley]
A vest around his chest and Rastafari is his name
A gift of everlasting life for us to all sustain
Blessing that you all begot
Lesson taught, you all forgot
Rasta call, I shit you not
Do you remember Elijah
And his chariot of flames?
Same blood dat runs through my veins
 
[Verse 4: Capleton]
The one ya name
Fear is in the eyes of the beholder
And love is in the presence of the love maker
Life is in the words of the comforter
Endure much longer, live much longer
Fear is in the eyes of the beholder
And love is in the presence of the love maker
Life is in the words of the comforter
Endure much longer, live much longer
Careful how you entertain, stranger
Selassie never born inna nah manger
And him never crucify as no saviour
Elect off himself him a-the ruler
Babylon a-malfunction, well, dem a failure
So be careful of dem cellular and pager
'Cause as I see dem, I see danger
Say dem great, but Selassie-I greater, yo
 
[Chorus Stephen Marley & Capleton]
...That a man shall endure forevermore
And it was written up in the Book of Life
That a man shall
(Blaze it up, blaze it up)
Endure forevermore
 
[Verse 5: Drag-On]
Mi think mi wanna lick upon shots
Upon a bloodclaat and fill the block with bumbarass cops
Cops mi nah talk you know you watch me walks in
While black woman is getting raped across New Yorks and
Before another brother's in chalks and
Imagine somebody said “That's your son dead, see him?”
See, us, we do the crime, we do di time
Y'all get away scot-free
So, police, mi gonna pop you ‘fore you pop me
'Cause if you get me, you got me, you shot me
No lock me, carry shotty’s since mom slapped me
'Cause my room’s sloppy
The youngest nigga out the camp is me
But nobody pampered me,
So you better don't ramp with me, fi see me
Me don't play plenty, chicks me blazed many
Raised plenty fi dollars
Storm out mi Prada, watch a bum holla
Watch him run, hit the floor
Told him come, come, no,
Throw your ganja 'pon di air, plah!
 
[Chorus: Stephen Marley & Capleton]
And it was written up in the Book of Life
That a man shall
(Blaze it up, blaze it up)
Endure forevermore
 
[Verse 6: Damian “Jr. Gong” Marley]
So watch for sticks and stones, stumbling blocks in piles
Life is one big road, miles on top of miles
So blessed be di soul that always remains a child
When most people don't even smile
There's a natural mystic blowin’ through di air
So keep it realistic and always be aware
The truth is crying out and it's so loud and so clear,
But most people won't even hear
Spiritual pollution in di atmosphere
And with so much confusion, can one be happy here?
Di gift of Rastafari is for all man to share
But some would rather to be so unfair
 
[Chorus: Stephen Marley & Capleton]
And it was written up in the Book of Life
That a man shall endure forevermore
And it was written up in the Book of Life
That a man shall endure forevermore
(Blaze it up! Blaze it up!)
And it was written up in the Book of Life
That a man shall...

The lyrics here have lots of errors and are incomplete, there's a whole verse missing. The video also doesn't have the whole song. Here are the correct lyrics and I'll post the video link below. I'll redo my annotations after it's corrected.
