Rise
Did you ever question any of the things they thougt while you were at school... And did you ever question "Oh my teacher, why do you take me for a fool?" Rise up you got to rise up, wake up and rise. When you're all alone, you'll search for love but they'll have none, this is the seed that they hae sown. Don't be afraid, a better place has yet to come. And when they won't teach or reach or feed and all they do is leave you deceive you. Be true to yourself and save your mind. Lesson for the young, so now let's fly away into the light of a brand new sun, the time has come. Rise up you gotta rise up, wake up and rise. We'll meditate, communicate, escalate. Don't be late, we just can't wait to liberate this human race. Go! Rise up you gotta rise up, wake up and rise. Don't let them take away your culture, don't let them take away your future rise up, you got to rise.back to top
Miss Freedom
Check out the government inject the innocent with subliminal criminal vibes. With the message attainable station to station tellin lies to a nation adressed by the president Yo. You should all be aware that leadera who fooled you and told you lies to get elelected rejected a civil rights bill with skill. What is he saying. Subliminal vibes again. You're known as miss freedom, you're known as the land of opportunity. Yea but what do they know, they know nothing. Tell-lies-vision it's got a nation trapped, keepin you flip back and forth and back. A remoe in your brain you remain the same intellectual genocide. It's suicide because you play the game and turn it on, so now you're caught like a base head visual fiending for the things you see on your television! Suliminal vibes again. Subliminal nation, govermental constitution emancipated miss freedom was their mendacious solution. To keep us really where we are mentally. Physically and foolishly abiding by the rules they set. What do they know. They don't live like we do, they'll never understand the middle or lowere class. So you better believe we go to overstand ourselves. From the white house in D. C. They'll never see you and me. Believe that brother, so whether you're white our whether your black take your brothers hand and sure nuff understand that this world is in need of a new plan, stop suffering and bring love across the land miss freedom.back to top
Unidentified
No, I can't take it no more. Living a fantasy with my face laying flat on the floor, how many days till the eagle flies, another one goes, another one gets by. It's time to get high, high up above you search for our crop and sudenly you drop. Drop. You, you walk right through my door unidentified, now it's time to lesson the score. played by the rules of fools, now they've gone and convinced you of much more. Now its time to fly, Your unidentified. There's no way to avoid the blood you say, is it the taste you desire, do you know the right form the wrong, the right from the wrong, no I ca't take it no more... and suddenly you drop.back to top
Love Is the Answer
We a go come, we a go mash it down and bring on revolution with my jah sound. And give the main solution with the love we found. We a go come. Love is the answer, this you must remember now the life man has lost his way. When the dollars na' run they wanfe kill and slay. And the book of revelations tells us of the day. So jah jah say Love is the answwer this you must remember. Sweet reggae music just carry vibes. Never give up never lose sight no matter waht dem say, don't you fade away lose your way so jah jah say. This is the life that we're livin'. Love is waht we should be givin, we a go come, we go mash it down an bring on revolution with my jah jah sound. We a go come, we a go mash it down, in the life man has lost his wa. So Jah Jah say. Hey, love is the answer love is the answer children. Whenever did ya never did need no love.back to top
Free
Never to breakdown never to fall we won't keep living with our backs agains the wall you say we're so ignorant but you can't see what might be right for you is not always good for me. All I wann know will we ever be free. Me loving you you loving me. You bring us to the groiund in a system built ofr fools then mastered the politricks. That kept us in your schools. You taught us anger by never showing love. Now I hope you never find out what we've been dreamin of. Never to breakdwon never to fall. We don't keep loving with our backs agians the wall. You say we're so ignorant but I can't agree cause I know what's right for you could never be right for me.back to top
Hair
People ask me everywhere is that really all your hair, I just tell them that if it ain't well it sure don't mean that no I can't. Just don't believe it's fair to judge a man by the lengh of his hair. Take two words, like hip and square the truth will shine and not your hair. Even the blind can damn near see whats outside you and inside me. Down or high the truth or lie. A weak man's laugh can be a strong man's cry. Black or blond or nappy or fair, you can't judge nobody by hair. If I thought that yyou would care I'd wear a wig up undeer my hair. Down or high the strongmans cry. People everywhere ask is that really all your hair. I just tell them if it ain't well it sure don't mean I can't. I just don't belive it's fair to judge a man by the length of his hair.back to top
Coming in Numbers
It was a plot to take over, to diveid and conquer was the plan but there was one thing that they overlooked, the masses and multitudes across theis land. Woe unto babylon, we're comin in numbers. Fight for your rights living in babylon and don't believe when they tell you this world is just for you. Weak abandoned by your leader. Now you stand alone. Loser in a war waged against right. Wasn't even a fight. Fight for your rights living in babylon and don't believe when they tell you this wrold is just for you. It was a plot to take over. To divide and conquer was the plan but there was one thing they overlooked the mases and multitudes across this land.back to top
Yes Jah
Living in times when things are slow people don't know where to go. Jah will always be there. People just suffering everywhere hold on don't despair. Jah will always be there. Yes I know it's hard to make a way so hold on children Hold on. What is true. Who the cap fit is who will wear it. So move aside oh evil man move far from here. Yes Jah love yes Jah love. Shine so very early in the morning bright like the moon in the evening. Listen and i'll tell you just what I knokw jump high jump low. Jah will always be there. Pain never know you, pain never will. Just look an you will find. Jah will alwyas be there. Jah! Sew a fruit tree and fruit you'll reap, plant not a seed and your life it won't keep hold on children hold on. Respect all creation and don't fear. Know what you know and not what you hear. Hold on children. I love I love Yes I love I love Hile Selassie. We give our god thanks and praises every day. We know we're safe in every way.back to top
Take Your Time
I am not afraid of doing the things I do. There must be something better than liveing just like you. Is this what scares you deep inside your soul is this the trip that takes you where you're so afraid to go. Take your time and don't you fight what you know is true. Take your time. You're so afraid of dying but you're not afraid of flying. Did you think that I would run from you. Did you think you'd make me hide. There's a peaceful reality above the earth and sky a beautiful situation awaits our faithful eyes. Seeing you confused really don't turn me on. I wish taht you would let go and let me lead you on. Living with this love has blessed my earthy form, the soul is everlasting and here. I'm safe and warm. I have tasted fruits and honey from a land so far away. I'd like you to come with me and stay for a day. A million miles and running the atmosphere is stunning. I know you'll want to stay here for the rest of your days. Open up you mind and let your soul do the thinking. Time to lose your hangups. Take your time and let love sink in! I am not afraid doing the things I do. There must be something better than living just like you... Take your time and let love sink in.back to top
Peace of Mind
Is this the life that we're livin or is it a fantasy. You can't believe everything they tell you is true. So, find yourself and your peace of mind. Come understand everything your sooul has to offer. Pull it together find your peace of m9ind. Get yourself together don't be left behind. Must we hold on to false conquest that they have instilled in us. Let us now pull it together and move with our hunger. Oh! we'll cast away all of our fears. Grass for the cattle. And herb for the service man.back to top
