Track Name: Contemporary Blues
These are not songs of revolution,
nor am I a revolutionary.
These simple songs are for your spirit,
In its eternal quest to be free.

These are not days for serving too many,
these are not days for serving just one.
These days I count as my blessings,
I thank my God for the rising sun.

But I’m at that point where I’ve had it with your narrow-minded views.
Cause I’ve heard your lies too many times on the television news…. Your giving me…

Contemporary, arbitrary, your compassions the Tooth fairy, big box blues!
How can you stand there and plan there to land there and ban there human right to choose?
So take your hand off me land off me while you stand on my freedom is not yours to abuse.
Your giving me the blues, contemporary blues…

These are not hands for building fences,
Nor will they ever take up arms.
These hands where meant to be holding,
a love with which my memory torments me.

These are not lives to bomb from heaven
or to count collaterally.
Our lives are meant to be lived,
Each one blessed equally.

And I don’t want you to think I don’t care about you.
Cause the same sun that rises on me, it rises on you… its just your giving me…

Contemporary, arbitrary, your compassions the Tooth fairy, big box blues!
How can you stand there and plan there to land there and ban there human right to choose?
So take your hand off me land off me while you stand on my freedom is not yours to abuse.
Your giving me the blues, contemporary blues…

Your giving me theee Blues……..

Trumpets!

BOOM BOP….. SHALA LA LA LA LA BOOM BOP!
Track Name: Open Roads
When I first met you I knew I’d get you Based upon the unnatural compassion I saw in your green eyes. That you got me like black coffee And I got you like a morning dew Aint no big surprise… it aint no big surprise…

Cause oh my my, but im on the fly aint found no dock this boat to tie, and life keeps floating away. But as I turn to give my good-byes I stumble and fall back into your eyes, Aint no road that beautiful… aint no road that beautiful…

I got love, life, the moon, the stars, reggae beats on bass guitars, comfort and love of my friends. But as I sleep deep beside your skin Where we all know, you let a sinner sin, I’m dreamin of open roads, oh I’m dreamin of open roads.

CHORUS
Cause oh my my, im on the fly Aint found no dock this boat to tie, and life keeps floating away. But as I turn to give my good-byes I stumble and fall back into your eyes, Aint no road that beautiful…

Aint no road that beautiful…

Cause I said, Aint no road that beautiful
Track Name: Island Girls
Island girls, Island girls, with feet of summer-gold
Will you keep me warm when the rain makes me cold.

Cause one-thousand two-hundred is all i got to pay
And ill be rising in your day.

So take me to your fields and lets sow some seeds,
Some for our love and some for our needs.

Then we’ll kick back and we’ll watch our garden grow
Flower by flower and row after row after row…

CHORUS
So keep your music easy cause I may come around.
But ill be quiet I will move without a sound.
Cause I’ll be looking for your feet of summer-gold
To chase away the rain and to keep me from the coooold…

Well Island girls, Island girls, with feet of summer-gold
Will you keep me warm when this world makes me cold.

Cause when their fighting in the east
And their fighting in the west,
North of the borders where I love it the best.

It’s where you walk me through my day
And lay me through my night
You can ride me like a wave onto a beach of morning light

Where we’ll kick back and let the tides flow
In the sea the sand, the earth and the land
You and i….

So keep your music easy cause I may come around.
Oh ill be quiet I will move without a sound.
Cause I’ll be looking for your feet of summer-gold
To chase away the rain and to keep me from the cold…
Keep me from the cold…
Keep me from the cooold…
Keep me from the cooold…
Keep me from the cooold…
Oh! Keep me from the cooold…
Keep me from the cooold…
Keep me from theeeeeeeeee…..

…and as the world turns you got to roll roll roll with it yeah..
…and as the world turns you got to roll roll roll with it yeah..
Track Name: Straight Down
Well my mumma is an angel set down on my path.
She kept me out of some trouble far from the pain,
the hate, the wrath.
She said, Love your sisters and your brothers love them to,
and child, Please love Jah, cause he gave all of this to you”.

Now theres my neighbor on the corner, he’s crying for his life.
A brief glimpse into the former, the car, the kids, the wife.
While im a man on a mountain, Im 23 stories sky high.
I got an ocean for a window, I watch eagles fly by.

CHORUS
And I take it well, ooooh ho!
I take it well, ooooh ho!
I take it well,
Straight down
Straight down to my heart.

So I got to kick it harder that old black night.
He said he heard it on the radio that it could bleed daylight.
So I got to get my mind strong and my body that too,
And girl I got to get my love strong so when I give it to you…

You’ll take it well, ooooh ho!
You’ll take it well, ooooh ho!
You’ll take it well,
Straight down
Straight down to my heart.

So I’ll play to your strengths
And then I’ll work on your weaknesses
I’ll play to your strengths
And then ill work on your weaknesses.
I’ll play to your strengths
And then ill work on your weaknesses.

While I try to align my mind with a little bit of positivity.
While I try to align my mind with a little bit of positivity.
While I try to align my mind with a little bit of positivity.

Cause we sing truth or fable, whatever keeps your mind stable
And your lovin body able girl,
Yeah we sing truth or fable, whatever keeps your mind stable
And your lovin body able girl,

Cause we sing
Truth or fable, whatever keeps your mind stable.
Track Name: UBU
If with guns and bomb and war You shoot up your mind. The truth behind your faith I find a little tricky to find.
And if you think that your theology’s The only way for them and me Well you must learn I turn no turn but for the love of all kinds.

And you with your critical eye who try to condemn my mind Well you will find that it can grind your hard hate down to bone. And you will learn that I can turn your hard hate in to stone.

While you still, hold that book above those bombs and expect peace from the fire. And you still, throw your pennies at poor peoples prayers and say that they vote in your favor.

A little woman spoke to me about a love in the sky and a new world order. The fate of hate to die and Jah be willing we’ll all get high so, I got a lot of love in me.
For she, for he, for we, for the, for life in the sky and the deep blue sea, For it for that, for them for those, the place I stay and the places I go….
Track Name: Gospel
Who would be the Masters if religion is abandoned?
Who would be Indiginous if their cultures washed way?
What would be this earth if these borders were ignored?
A place to find a common unity where peace is employed.

Who would be my god when the horizon goes gray?
Where would be my god if the sun just spins and rolls away?

Whether I be on my own or whether I belong
Whether I be struggling or whether I be strong
Love, will be the gospel that powers me on.

I would be your man through the whole book of Revelation.
I would be your man till 24:14.
I would be your man come their hell and high water.
I would be your man down to the very last scene.

Ooooooh…
That I may find my refuge in the hour of my despair
In a mind that turns in a heart that burns
With a power that’s always there….

Whether I be struggling or whether I be strong
Whether I be on my own or whether I belong
Love will be the gospel that powers me on
Love will be the gospel that powers me on….
