Electric Avenue - Lyrics By Eddie Grant

Down in the street there is violence [ The Axe Lies At The Base Of The Trees ]
And a lots of work to be done [ Our Baptism By Fire Is Now Coming ]
No place to hang out our washing [ And, There Is No Place Left To Escape It ]
And I can't blame all on the sun [ For We Have Blindly Allowed It To Happen ],
oh no [ Lucifer Couldn't Have Done It, Without Our Own Help ]

We gonna rock down to Electric Avenue [ We Trust In Our Modern Technology ]
And then we'll take it higher [ And, We'll Do More Of The Same ]
Oh we gonna rock down to Electric Avenue [ Pursuing More And More Of It ]
And then we'll take it higher [ Until, It Finally Destroys Us ]

Workin' so hard like a soldier [ Always Chasing After Possessions ]
Can't afford a thing on TV [ But, Never Obtaining Anything Of True Value ]
Deep in my heart I'm a warrior [ I, Honestly, Want To Fight Against It ]
Can't get food for them kid, good God [ But, I Can't Even Obtain The Necessary Resources ]

We gonna rock down to Electric Avenue [ We Trust In Our Modern Technology ]
And then we'll take it higher [ And, We'll Do More Of The Same ]
Oh we gonna rock down to Electric Avenue [ Pursuing More And More Of It ]
And then we'll take it higher [ Until, It Finally Destroys Us ]

Oh no... [ It Angers Me Tremendously ]
Oh no... [ It Pulls At The Strings Of My Own Heart ]
Oh no... [ If, Only, I Could Rise Up And Fight It ]
Oh no... [ But, Alas, It Is A Lost Cause ]

We gonna rock down to Electric Avenue [ We Trust In Our Modern Technology ]
And then we'll take it higher [ And, We'll Do More Of The Same ]
Oh we gonna rock down to Electric Avenue [ Pursuing More And More Of It ]
And then we'll take it higher [ Until, It Finally Destroys Us ]

Who is to blame in one country [ Who Is The One Currently Behind It All ]?
Never can get to the one [ Babylon Is The Land Of Confusion ]
Dealin' in multiplication [ They Control All Of Our Educational Systems ]
And they still can't feed everyone [ They Don't Really Care About Us ],
oh no [ Just Listen To That Song By Michael Jackson ]

We gonna rock down to Electric Avenue [ We Trust In Our Modern Technology ]
And then we'll take it higher [ And, We'll Do More Of The Same ]
Oh we gonna rock down to Electric Avenue [ Pursuing More And More Of It ]
And then we'll take it higher [ Until, It Finally Destroys Us ]

Out in the street [ Out In The Marketplace ]...
Out in the street [ Where Our Knowledge Comes From ]...
Out in the playground [ Where We Interact Everyday ]...
In the dark side of town [ In The World That Surrounds Us ]...

We gonna rock down to Electric Avenue [ We Trust In Our Modern Technology ]
And then we'll take it higher [ And, We'll Do More Of The Same ]
Oh we gonna rock down to Electric Avenue [ Pursuing More And More Of It ]
And then we'll take it higher [ Until, It Finally Destroys Us ]

Rock it in the daytime [ We Need To, Riot In The Streets ]
Rock it in the night [ We Need To, Burn Babylon Down ]...

And, while I'm fully in agreement with Eddie Grant's own ' Well Thought-Out Sentiment ' within his Popular Hit Song: " Electric Avenue " - I would caution you completely against this particular ' Non-Spiritually Minded Strategy '! After all, The Holy Scriptures openly declare:
  1. " Come Out Of Babylon [ Both: Political And Spiritual ], My People, Lest You Share In Her Own Plagues.... "
  2. " Be Ye Wise As Serpents [ In Understanding All Of These Things ], But Be As Harmless As Doves [ For I, Myself, Shall Execute This Baptismal Judgment ].... "
  3. " Who Is This [ Yahweh Himself ] In Blood Soaked Garments [ Who Has Waged His Battle Against Babylon ] And Treads The Winepress [ The Great Battle Now Coming ] Of The Fierceness Of His Wrath [ Not Ours ] Alone [ Without Any Of Our Own Help ]? "
  4. " Those Who Live By The Sword [ Utilizing Unlawful Forms Of Violence ] Shall Die By The Sword [ Shall Be Unlawfully Murdered ]. "
- rather, we should be: Spiritually Preparing Ourselves To Enter His Own Kingdom, and Readying Ourselves To Go To The Promised Land - as, so long ago, prophesied! Meanwhile, there is Very Little Time Left to [ now ] prepare ourselves - for what's truly coming....

Ahava and Shalom.

May Yahweh's Own: Love and Peace - be upon you!
