Track Name: For the Seed
what a heavy load
babylon stone
i steady lift up before you drag me down
i'm not giving up 'till they bury my bones
what a heavy load
babylon stone

one step forward
two steps backward
one step forward
two steps backward
one step forward
no steps backward

i'm thinking of leaving
and living in love
gonna grow me a garden
earth light and water
earth light and water
for the seed that i'll be planting
earth light and water
earth light and water
for the seed
Track Name: Rice and Beans
rice and beans cooking on the stove
satisfy my soul
rice and beans cooking on the stove
satisfy my soul

last night
i did it to myself
i couldn't stand the rain
last night
i did that for myself
got no one else to blame

rice and beans cooking on the stove
satisfy my soul
rice and beans cooking on the stove
satisfy my soul

sunday morning
soon come
help me carry on
sunday morning
you came
to help me ease the pain
Track Name: Singerman
singer man
sing me a song
right now i'm hurting
from the wounds inside
singer man knows
we're gonna take blows
if the truth is an offense

and now i know
so know that i know
that when the world gets cold
you'll find a way
i'll find a way
back to my heart

singer man
sing me a song
right now i'm searching
for someplace to hide
singer man come
tell me to stand up in love
is all you've got to do

and now i know
so know that i know
that when the world gets cold
you'll find a way
i'll find a way
back to my heart

singer man
sing me a song
right now i'm scared
and i don't know why
singer man sing
tell me i'm free like the bird on a wing
sailing high across the sky

and now i know
so know that i know
that when the world get cold
you'll find a way
i'll find a way
back to my heart
Track Name: the Humans
i dropped in from outer-space
'cause it seemed like such a lovely place
to relax my martian feet
and find something green to eat
caught my first sunrise
and it blew my mind
the redding of blueish skies
and a warm wind kissed my eyes
was chatting with a big gray whale
she had such a lovely large tail
she told be all about the seas
and the earth sounded perfect to me

but then she told me 'bout the humans
she said they were confusing
they talk about heaven
but they don't love the one they're living in
oh the humans
why they gotta do that
why they gotta be that way
it's making me crazy

i said there's got to be some mistake
what would ever live that way
i traveled on only to find
my whale she wasen't out of her mind
'cause i was rapping with a redwood tree
he was as high as can be
he shook all his mighty leaves
and then he cried in-front of me

oh the humans
they're so confusing
they talk about paradise
then they put black smoke up in the skies
oh the humans
why they gotta do that
why they gotta be that way
it's making me crazy

been about thirty years
and i'm still here
don't know when i'll be moving on
but i know it won't be long
please don't get me wrong now
i love this place
so much beauty to see
natural variety

but oh the humans
they're so confusing
they dream of a lasting peace
so why won't they let it be
oh the humans
whay they gotta do that
why they gotta be that way
making me crazy
the humans.
Track Name: Wrong Words
i been trying for days on end
to get this message off to you my friend
but each and every time
i think i got that line
the words don't come out right

i been laying awake in bed
steady stream of verbage running through my head
o each and every time
i try try try
the words don't come out right

i thought i might have had it right there
but i guess it slipped my mind
o wait a minute here it comes
shucks my pen wen't dry
what i wouldn't give to catch the cat that's got my tongue
instead i watch her as she runs

what i really wanna know right now
do you think it's possible someway, somehow
for you to forgive me and just dance tonight
even if the words don't come out right
Track Name: the Air That We Breathe
they a go fight against their mother father fight against friends
they a go fight against their sister brother against their own children
they a go fight against their lover one another lord it never ends

we a go dance tonight
we a go make it right today

they a go fight against the ocean
them fight against the tree
they a go fight against the skies
them a go fight against the seas
and the air that we breathe
the air that we breathe

we a go dance tonight
we a go make it right today

i know sometimes it seems a struggle just to set your mind at ease
this world is trouble and you got so much responsibilities
but when you fight against yourself you miss that in reality
you're already free
you're already free

we a go dance tonight
we a go make it right today
Track Name: Scared
johnny's got a gun
nowhere to run
johnny's got a gun so you better get one

scared scared scared

every time things get thick
you a go run for your gun
hold your trigger now
be the bigger man
bring the positive vibration
said every time things get thick
you a go run for your gun
hold your fire now
get higher
on an irie meditation

humbly i request to suggest a new recipe
that you might season your reason
with a touch of equality
that you might lessen up the salt
so we can taste the flavor of harmony
or will you be
scared

johnny's got a gun
nowhere to run
johnny's got a gun so you better get one

they no search for no peaceful solution
straight for the strap gun clap gun clap
they no search for no peaceful solution
straight for the strap gun clap

humbly i request to suggest a new recipe
that you might season your reason
with a touch of equality
that you might lessen up the salt
so we can taste the flavor of harmony
or will you be
scared
Track Name: Life In a Bus
when i was just a little boy
when i was in pain my father come to rescue me
he'd place his hand on my chest and said son breathe
gather up your pain

gather up your pain and give it all to me

i've grown into a man and i found my girl
jah jah put her in my life to rock upon my world
i'd give my eyes to never see her bleed
gather up your pain lover give it all to me

i see we struggle struggle struggle for our bread
i wonder how long we fighting to be free

gather up your pain and give it all to me
gather up your pain give it all to me
Track Name: Hot Sauce
karmic basis says be careful
things can change at the drop of a dime
down here on earth it seems some people have lost their mind
mine is made up of word sound and power
mine is made up of word power sound
this wisdom came from mistakes i've made
and in this life i've found

some people have to touch the fire
some people have to get burnt
some people have to touch the fire
before they ever learn

h
o
t

karmic basis says that
it's what keeps half the world with a smile day to day
judge not
before you judge yourself
as bob marley did say
i say the truth lives in between us
wave to wave and day to day
momma always said she could have changed my name
to danny-learn-the-hard-way

some people have to touch the fire
some people have to get burned
some people have to touch the fire
before they ever learn

Track Name: Ecocide
it's all the same
from my eyes
never many answers
never many answers

heaven is a place called earth
we could be living in a paradise
destruction of my heaven
makes me want to cry
Track Name: i Wish
empty pockets
but tonight i fill you up till you can see the ocean swimming
in the bottom of your cup
empty pockets
traded all i had for truth
stronger in the moment now
i've nothing left to loose
empty pockets
not a dollar to my name
o darling i would stretch my soul
to shelter you from pain

and in the dance they move
locked in the groove
like they're sharing just one mind
never-mind the rain
they're on another plane
i swear it's like a natural high
the vibe and rhyme
stronger than wine
kinder than the kindest kind
everyone feel fine
stepping in time
everything is gonna be alright

empty pockets
and i'm miles away from home
safe for the fire in my heart
to warm these aching bones
empty pockets
lord i wish i had a dime
so i could call to say i thank you
and that i'm doing fine
sweet and tragic
high's and lows and in-betweens
i don't know how you painted it
but i know just what it means

when in the dance they move
locked in the groove
like they're sharing just one mind
never-mind the rain
they're on another plane
i swear it's like a natural high
the vibe and rhyme
stronger than wine
kinder than the kindest kind
everyone feel fine
stepping in time
everything is gonna be alright
Track Name: In your Arms
in this life
my challenge

me balance
though i bend i know i'll never break
this time we spend could not be a mistake
i'll just stay strong
give more love
one thing
i'm sure of
in your arms is where i wanna be

in this way
my sister
i'm gonna stay
for ever
through the rain you know i'll give you shelter
these growing pains they made me so much wiser

go on believe in to
you know it's true
do you feel like dancing with me
'cause i wanna dance with you

in this heart
my lover
we're gonna live
together
i know you want to make our future plans
but for now we're doing all we can
i just
stay strong
give more love
one thing
i'm sure of
in your arms is where i wanna be
