"Preacher man don't tell me heaven is under the earth
I know you don't know what life is really worth
Is not all that glitters in gold and
Half the story has never been told
So now you see the light, aay
Stand up for your right..."
from "Get up Stand up" by Bob Marley and the Wailers
It is a reggae song written by Bob Marley and Peter Tosh.

"These are the letters which Endymion wrote
To one he loved in secret, and apart.
And now the brawlers of the auction mart
Bargain and bid for each poor blotted note,
Ay! for each separate pulse of passion quote
The merchant's price. I think they love not art
Who break the crystal of a poet's heart
That small and sickly eyes may glare and gloat.
Is it not said that many years ago,
In a far Eastern town, some soldiers ran
With torches through the midnight, and began
To wrangle for mean raiment, and to throw
Dice for the garments of a wretched man,
Not knowing the God's wonder, or His woe?"
"A popularity of invasion
Handed down through centuries
A force of arms called gentle persuasion
What have we learned from history
from "Apparently Nothin' " by the remake of Brand New Heavies

I was angry with my friend
I told my wrath, my wrath did end;
I was angry with my foe
I told it not, my wrath did grow.
And I watere’d it in fears
Night and morning with my tears;
And I sunned it with smiles
And with soft deceitful wiles.
And it grew both day and night,
Till it bore an apple bright;
And my foe beheld it shine,
And he knew that it was mine,
And into my garden stole
When the night had veil’d the pole:
In the morning glad I see
My foe outstretch’d beneath the tree.
"A Poison Tree" by William Blake
"Don't let them get you down
Making you feel guilty about
Golden rain will bring you riches
All the good things - you deserve now.
Climbing forever trying
Find your way out - of the wild wild wood
Now there's no justice
You've only yourself that you can trust in"
