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

Hermano 04:00
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

Catch a Fire 05:05
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

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

Humanity 04:37
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....

Love for All 03:06
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

Greed 05:30
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

[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

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

Too Long 04:04
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
