Bunny Wailer - Scheme Of Things

Song Lyrics

Biblical Reference

What are you doing
Towards the scheme of things
What are your words
Towards your brother being
What are you doing
Towards the scheme of things
What are your words
Towards your brother being
Let the truth
Shine bright
Through all your actions
1 John 2:8 - Again, a new commandment I write unto you, which thing is true in him and in you: because the darkness is past, and the true light now shineth.
As you strive toward the accomplishment of your mission
As you seek to feed the sheep
Of the shepherd
Ezekiel 34:11-12 - For thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out. As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day.
Matthew 10:6 - But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
John 21:16 - He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep.
You've been found worthy
To enter in Jah wineyard
Isaiah 5:7 - For the vineyard of the LORD of hosts is the house of Israel, and the men of Judah his pleasant plant: and he looked for judgment, but behold oppression; for righteousness, but behold a cry.
But there is too much pollution
In the land
Said I need some atsmopheric vibration.
Too much confusion
Where I go
The whole world is suffering from illusion
But redemption stands
Within the scheme of things
The redeemer's called
The king of kings
Purifys the soul
From unclean things
Job 19:25 - For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth:
Isaiah 47:4 - As for our redeemer, the LORD of hosts is his name, the Holy One of Israel.
Revelation 17:14 - These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.
Know your place
Within the scheme of things
Wise ones will hear
And will increase their learnings
From the words of the wise
And their right sayings
Proverbs 1:5-6 - A wise man will hear, and will increase learning; and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels: To understand a proverb, and the interpretation; the words of the wise, and their dark sayings.
How long ye little ones will ye love simplicity? Proverbs 1:22 - How long, ye simple ones, will ye love simplicity? and the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?
You better rise in the wave
From your slumbering mentality
Ephesians 5:14 - Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.
For the wind of desparation
I know it will
Will increase crimewaves and demonstrations
But the rock
Of this pression
It will come a flood of conflict and convictions

What are you doing
Towards the scheme of things
What are your words
Towards your brother beings
What are you doing
Towards the scheme of things
What are your words
Toward your brother beings
