Babylon and Zion

Here are the lyrics of the Bob Marley song (Rastaman Chant) you listened to today:

Hear the words of the Rastaman say:
“Babylon, you throne gone down, gone down;
Babylon, you throne gone down.”

Said I hear the words of the Iyaman say:
“Babylon, you throne gone down, gone down;
Babylon, you throne gone down.”

And I hear the angel with the seven seals say:
“Babylon throne gone down, gone down;
Babylon throne gone down.”

I say fly away home to Zion (fly away home);
I say fly away home to Zion (fly away home).
One bright morning when my work is over,
Man will fly away home.

One bright morning when my work is over,
Man will fly away home.
One bright morning when my work is over,
Man will fly away home.
Say one bright morning when my work is over,
Man will fly away home.

And here it is (by Julian Marley and Busta Rhymes):
