The narrator consoles himself and his grandmother to the music of Bob Marley.
"One good thing about music, when it hits- you feel no pain"
"Open your eyes, look within. Are you satisfied with the life you're living?"
"Life is one big road with lots of signs. So when you riding through the ruts, don't complicate your mind. Flee from hate, mischief and jealousy. Don't bury your thoughts, put your vision to reality . Wake Up and Live!"
"Herb is the healing of a nation, alcohol is the destruction."
"Don't gain the world and lose your soul, wisdom is better than silver or gold..."
"The good times of today, are the sad thoughts of tomorrow."
"When you smoke the herb, it reveals you to yourself."
"In this bright future you can't forget your past."
"Don't worry about a thing, every little thing is gonna be alright"
"You ain't gonna miss your water until your well runs dry"
