a shooting was planned and they got bob in his elbow while his wife was in the kitchen meanwhile he discussed with don tailor his manager.ambush in the night focused on this plan of eliminating him,because both power and opponents hoped that bob was with them.but fortunately for him he was a rasta and said:doubling in politics i don't know what that is,i'm a rasta i fight from every angle to help my people to be free by knowing that the devilish came to teach us the wrong way the untruth...listen to his interview when he went to spain for the first time.take it easy dear rastas and fans
My understanding of Ambush in the Night Lyrics. | Reviewer: Godwin Buwa | 5/15/12
It was a ridicule of the western system that oppressed the blacks at that time and continue to do so now.
"look at them fighting for control. But they are oblivious of the times. They use material wealth and technological advantage to lure and subdue us. They think because they have it, we are nothing but subjects of control. They say our knowledge is limited to what they teach us and that we are so ignorant without them simply because, they can do what they want with us. And through their political means of control and manipulation, they impoverish us and deny us our necessaries. In the struggle to make ends meet, they play brother against another into enmity. They do not want black harmony.
Its a surprise attack on our being and wisdom. The wise of us who understand their ploy become a target for elimination. They have killed and shot at some of them but we find protection from the hands of God, the most high.
The fact is, we are not ignorant a minute. we actually know more than what they claim to teach us. They are no where near the levels of our knowledge. However amidst all these manipulations and by the power of God, we keep on coming against the odds and surviving against their will, to their annoyance. This surprise attack on us has been planned by those who have power to control society (the wealthy, the rich, the powerful and the awesome). It is designed to silence the wise and the prudent among us. Money is being used to bribe many against their own. Its a design by those who are drunk with the quest for control.

Bob was ambushed in his Hotel with his wife, where they shot at him 9 times, only one bullet grazed his elbow or around there I believe. He survived of course.
See the fools ego's fight for power over eachother!
But if they only knew that the hour of their redemption could be at hand!
So they bribe us with their money and spare parts (technology and such)
Trying to undermine our God Given reasoning power.
The wise say that only what the many know is what they teach us.
They say we are ignorant in our darkness.
Because through manipulation of political and social acts they keep us satisfied.
But when will we really drink from the well of wisdom?
Our very brothers turn out to be our enemies.
In our ignorance (night) they ambush our consciousness'.
All societies guns of bad habits are pointed at me.
While we sit in darkness they ambush our rights.
But within the strength of the Lord I find my protection.
Well what we TRULY know,
Is not what the many teach us!
We are not truly ignorant!
And the fools just cannot touch our true Self!
Through the power of the Almighty Father
We wise keep on surfacing out of the darkness.
We keep on surviving this mental slaughterhouse
Yeaaahhhaa, Ambush us in our ignorance!
They are trying to conquer my mind
A trick attack in the night of our delusion
Planned by the rich and heartless.
Jah is Mighty
