No Time in Zion - Nana Agyemang Ofosu

He will be born tomorrow
And will live yesterday
But today will be forever
And tomorrow shall die
So he lived ephemerally
Drawing masses in his rally

He visited yesterday
And blinded the spirits to pray
And preached eternally to redeem
Lost souls to reach self-esteem

The kings prowl within
As the sage talked of him
But he was silent
Helpless he seemed
They hurried him elsewhere

Many slain by the laughing blades
Spurting blood of feeble bones
Dire sights of wailing mothers
Slashing their hearts
And the forever living was running
An escape to return
Fully armed to be celebrated
Like we do today

Is he born forever?
To live yesterday today
Or born yesterday
To be lived today
Time was in Zion
Joyous and unending
Patching the lost memory
Of a king in a royal diadem

He will be born tomorrow
And will live yesterday
But today will be forever
And tomorrow shall die
So he lived ephemerally
Drawing masses in his rally

It is unfathomable
Because there is no time in Zion
But life unending
