Reggae Music Make We Chant Down Babylon!

Bob Marley’s song Chant Down Babylon

Chant Down Babylon

Come we burn down Babylon one more time

Come we go chant down Babylon one more time

For them soft. Yes them soft

Them soft. Yes them soft

So come we go chant down Babylon one more time

Men see their dreams and aspirations

Crumble in front of their face

And all of their wicked intentions to destroy the human race

How I know and how I know

And that’s how I know

A reggae music make we chant down Babylon

This song comes from the Confrontation album that was released after Bob Marley’s death.

Chant down Babylon attests to the power that Bob Marley’s music had in the way of acting as a catalyst for social change and awareness.

What is Babylon?

Babylon here has a two fold meaning.

On one hand Babylon refers to the biblical meaning of a place or person that is corrupt and must hence be destroyed.

In the other figurative sense it speaks to the state or Anglo/American imperial forces that act as oppressive regimes by executing their personal agendas based on race, greed, power and social control.

The term Babylon features throughout many of his other songs, for instance he speaks of the inescapable implosion of the system of brutality, dysfunctional systems of education, religion and politics in Rasta Man Chant, Crazy Baldheads, Exodus Movement of Jah people and Babylon system.

We refuse to be What you wanted us to be.

We are what we are

That’s the way it’s going to be,

You can’t educate I

For no equal opportunity

Talking about my freedom

People freedom and liberty

Yeah we’ve been trodding on

The winepress much too long

Rebel, rebel.
