Track Name: Truth is Out There
The truth is out there
But where
The truth lives within
Ourselves X2

Can someone tell me
What kind of world we’re living in
Where yes means no
And no means yes
Oh my son listen to what you mama says
You will never know yourself
Until your back is against the wall.

The truth is out there
But where
The truth lives within
Ourselves
Track Name: Hermano
In life I know
I am my brothers keeper
I’ve got to be there
When still waters run deeper

For there was a time
When the tide swept us under
We survived, the rain
The lightning and the thunder

Brother of mine
Don’t you worry no more
Sister of mine
We’ve weathered the storm
If rough seas return
And problems keep rising
Never above or below
I’ll be by your side

It was Daniel
Who was saved from the lions den
So just like Daniel
We live to fight again

For there was a time
When the tide swept us under
We survived, the rain
The lightning and the thunder

Brother of mine
Don’t you worry no more
Sister of mine
We’ve weathered the storm
If rough seas return
And problems keep rising
Never above or below
I’ll be by your side

By your side
By your side
By your side
Track Name: Catch a Fire
Catch a fire mek it burn
Burn dem bad influence
Restore humanity
Down in our community

We living in perilous time
Perilous time perilous time

Let’s put our differences aside
And act our brothers and sisters keepers.
Two heads are better than one
Unity is strength, unity is strength. Unite is strength

Doesn't matter where you come from.
Doesn't matter your complexion
Doesn't matter the language you speak
Neither the God you worship

We are people of the world
We got to love one another

we are people of the world we got to care for each together
Track Name: Salt of the Earth
I’m gonna plant my seed
Deep in the earth , deep in the earth
I will be praying
For a tree to grow tall and strong
And if that seed shall thirst
Got to bear water
Craving shelter,
Cover I shall offer

The salt of the earth
Shall bear beautiful fruit
The tallest trees
Only grow from the deepest roots
So sweet the truth

I’m going to till the soil
Hands to the bone, hands to the bone
I will be slaving
For a tree to grow tall and strong
And if that seed shall thirst
Got to bear water
Craving shelter,
Cover I shall offer
Track Name: Humanity
No portion of humanity
Has the abiding rights,
Everlasting rights .
To oppressed another portion of humanity

The God you worship expect us to live as one
The God you worship expect us to live together
The God you worship expect us to live together
Why fussing and fighting
Among Jah children
Jah children only Jah Jah knows

No place is completed without trees
House without a tree is charmless I say,
Park without a tree is purposeless I say
And a country without a tree is useless I say....
Track Name: Love for All
We don't see people as they are,
We see them as we are.

Love you give is the love you receive
Let us live in unity

Love all
Care for all
Stand for all

He who loves you warns you
True love never hesitate to help
Love is like coughing, it can't be hidden
Let us live in unity

Love all
Care for all
Stand for all
Track Name: Greed
Where you gonna run to?
Where you gonna hide?
Where will you turn?
(No place - no place to turn)

Take a look around you
Your problems surround you
And all bridges burned

You’re on an island
Out in the ocean
Can’t swim to shore
(Too far - Too far from shore)

With all of your greed
With all of your vices
You still want more

You build yourself up so high
The higher you climb the further you fall
You flew too close to the sun

Run and come, run and come
Run come and see what you’ve done
Track Name: Door of No Return ft. MdotCoop
[Cha Cha]
Through the door of no return
Through the door of no return

Journey to the coast
we never come back to our home

Journey to the coast
we never come back to our homeland.

How can we sing a song of Zion
Down innah Strange land?
Jah Jah children know thy self
And stand firm

[Mdot Coop]
I’m off on a journey won’t be seen again / that place that I stood they won’t see me in / I’m on the go / he out the door like my aunty would say / I got demons I hate when they come to play / but I’m on a plane with my bros Serengeti / Mosaic Foundation strong tear through levees / that levity air it out / that brevity what I’m about / passion I get it out / connection with out a doubt / this the path that we chose wasn’t no easy one / but life like jerk got seasoned son / cards dealt I’m in the game / juggin’ and making plays / Black used to be called spade / ironic I live this way / felt a movement coming / a vibration something /maybe a tingle in my spine but I knew it was something / so energy on the up and up / push it and press my luck / put it into action or you ain’t really saying much
Track Name: Time for a Change
Down in the valley
High up on the hill
I hear the people crying
Yet their problems linger still

Out in the country
See it on city streets
Keeps getting harder
To make the two ends meet

Prices keep rising
Wages are stalling
Hear the rebels yell
Revolution calling

Prices keep rising
Wages are stalling
Hear the rebels yell
Revolution calling

Where there’s a will
I know there’s a way
Fight for tomorrow when we we’ve got today

Where there’s a will
I know there’s a way
Fight for tomorrow when we we’ve got today

It’s time for a change
Track Name: Too Long
They tell us that we’re living sweet
Living in a righteous society
Won’t you pull the shade, from your eyes
Take a look at reality
They want walls on every border
Call it the land of the free
They want chains on every man
Repeating our own history

It’s been so long
So long
So long
We’ve been moving the wrong way
Sing the same song
Same song
Same song
Praying for better days

You can’t even walk the streets
Without a soldier's mentality
They say you best be packing heat
To defend yourself properly
They want war on every corner
Call it the american dream
They want chains on every mans feet
Repeating our own history, again and again
It’s been so long
So long
So long
We’ve been moving the wrong way
Sing the same song
Same song
Same song
Praying for better days
