Rhythm

I want the whole wide world to open their eyes and see
Let there worries go, feel there hands lifted free
Grab ahold of life, laugh, shout, dance and sing
Music with my friends and family

Watch me a go while I ride this here Rhythm
I and I know when you feel up this passion from my soul
Overflow when I fill up this Rhythm
It takes me far away (So far away)

Everyone big stress in west society
Each one worry for themselves, why not community
Don't them know they're just a branch off the family tree
They’ll find out them not the central seed eventually

But them seek, separate from this reality or so them say
Take in potion make them feel another way
Spin and stumble, they can’t see straight
So while they sit and talk, I'll breathe in and demonstrate

Watch me a go
Watch me a go
Watch me a go
And I’ll take this so far away

Watch me a go while I ride this here Rhythm
I and I know when you feel up this passion from my soul
Over flow when I fill up this Rhythm
It takes me so far away (So far away)

It take me to a very special place
Not by plane train rocket ship to outer space
Woah oh no it's so deep in my soul
I only know because it was shown
But don't get me wrong

I will show oh watch me a go and know
That I follow the root of David can you swallow
That’s Jesus and the covenant that He made with us
In Jah I put my trust

Watch me a go
Watch me a go
Watch me a go
And I’ll take this so far away

Watch me a go while I ride this here Rhythm
I and I know when you feel up this passion from my soul
Overflow when I fill up this Rhythm
It takes me far away (So far away)

Steppin' Stone

Each one be rock when we look closely
These living stone come in two variety
One roll forward while the other contrary
G'won drag down the youth like some weight upon their feet into the sea

Yes I see weight upon your shoulder
But you must come to understand
When others need a helping hand
You've got to recognize difference between pressure and encouragement

Curse upon the stumbling block
Blessing upon the Stepping Stone
Thieves they lead up the youth astray
I say gather together bring them back home (To Zion)

Curse upon the stumbling block
Blessing upon the Stepping Stone
Thieves they lead up the youth astray
I say gather together rally round the throne (In Zion)

It’s not just what you say but what you do
'Cus if you speak and don’t pull thru
Hey that’s a strong statement too
The youth who go and watch you and someday soon oh so soon

You see them put a new foot in your old shoe
Repeat once again the same things that you do
You know its true you see them eyes on you
Them watchin' yes what you guna do?!

Curse upon the stumbling block
Blessing upon the Stepping Stone
Thieves they lead up the youth astray
I say gather together bring them back home (To Zion)

Curse upon the stumbling block

Can’t you see, their minds must be freed
Take responsibility think of what we could achieve
If ya lead by example show them a sample
When them ask for a pinch give them handful

As One

When the fire burn we unite As One
Whirlwinds blow they will blow
Earth a-shaking unite As One
When the waters overflow

Why must it take such calamity
For us to join together bow our heads and fall to our knees
My brotha' my sista' oh can't you see
If we unite As One Satan will not succeed

When the fire burn we unite As One
Whirlwinds blow they will blow
Earth a-shaking unite As One
When the waters overflow

So you scatter you think it's wiser to run
you cannot avoid trial and tribulation must come
Wolf devour those who stray away
One by one by one by one

But as for I I will not hide
You will find I with my brotha' upon the highest mountainside
We singing praise and chanting on high
Fill us with strength so we may rise

When the fire burn we unite As One
Whirlwinds blow they will blow
Earth a-shaking unite As One
When the waters overflow

Fire fire fire guna burn
Whirlwinds guna blow winds guna blow
Earth guna rumble and shake shake shake
You see the water guna overflow

When the fire burn we unite As One
Whirlwinds blow they will blow
Earth a-shaking unite As One
When the waters overflow

Gopherhole

A fruitful garden is what everybody needs
Enough of that poisonous garbage that I myself eat
Wake up one day with five disease
On me head hand back brain and the bottom of my feet

So I rush to the farmer g'won grab me some seed
He say hurry back home it's past the first day of spring
So I hit the road and I get to planting
But I notice many hole so I start to sing

Gopherhole in me backyard
Gopherhole ina me backyard
Gopherhole in me backyard
Gopherhole

So I till up the soil and plant twice the seed
Some for that critter and a plenty for me
Wait a few days and see some green sprouting
It make me so happy growth is such a beautiful thing

Take a look around I’ve got all that I need
Some herb,veggie, flower and a couple of trees
But the next day he showed with his family
And do the dirty deed make me so angry

Well him a munchie munchie
When me not watchie watchie
Him a munchie munchie
When me not watchie

Gopherhole in me backyard
Gopherhole ina me backyard
Gopherhole in me backyard
Gopherhole

You see my vine grow high thirty days in Jah light
But he’s thieving and teething on me root all the night
So I stomp my feet and clinch my fist real tight
And say alright, gopher it’s time to fight

Him come from below before I finish me plea
He say like this 'no one can stop me'
'I go where I want and I eat what I please
O little gopher what make you so hungry?!

Gopherhole in me backyard
Gopherhole ina me backyard
Gopherhole in me backyard
Gopher Hole

Dread

Foolish man can keep up his vanity

Envy bitterness all them lust and greed

Can’t tell reality from Babylon illusion
Flood up humanity with consistent temptation
Until society g'won drown in its confusion

You’ve shown your love g'won grabbed up my attention
So I train my mind with love and dedication
Stay one step ahead through prayer and meditation
Use my dread to defend against mind infiltration

Cause I'm a Dreadlock covenant to Jah
Well some of the Dreaklock grow
Dreadlock covenant to Jah
And the whole world all over

Dreadlock covenant to Jah

Dready dread a covenant you cannot untie
All the people come up and them ask me why
Dready dread you know it make me feel so fine

All the people come and ask me why
Dready dread a covenant you cannot untie
It's woven tight your better off if you did not try
Your mind explode without your brain you die

Humble Them

We come to Humble Them who claim they righteous
Burden, bring burden on them
Humble Them who claim they righteous
Burden, bring burden on them

Righteous righteous ha, they must be kidding
Righteous constantly sinning
Righteous stand tall the righteous way
Righteous speak up I can't hear watch you've got to say

Explain to I mysteries of creation
With your power could you shake Earth's foundation
Come straight face claiming that your hearts pure as gold
Giving to the needy but consume them like black hole

It's plain to see conscience clean as muddy water
Vein repetition him call satta massagana
Yes you can stand tall the righteous way
But when you fall down who’s guna help you back up again

Humble Them who claim they righteous
Burden bring burden on them
Humble Them who claim they righteous
Burden bring burden on them

Change my heart to overstand humility
Selfless living change perspective on reality
Sermon on mountain lay it out for all to see
Blessed are the poor merciful and the meek

Pray for each other show love to your enemy
Hear brother sister we're one earthly family
To be the winner in the race is not such priority
For the first will be last and the least will take the highest seat

Humble Them who claim they righteous
Burden bring burden on them
Humble Them who claim they righteous
Burden bring burden on them

Love & Faith

I found love, guna hold it so tight
Set aside the hate, not guna fuss nor fight

They cannot shake my Faith

Praise Jah for the length of my day
Babylon come strong but they cannot take away my Love

Hear me little sister believe me when I say
We just passin' thru but we guna get home someday
Every little situation Jah provides a way
No fool with a weak heart guna leave I man astray

Outta the darkness we step into the light
We sing songs all day we dance all night
And we want the world to know so we shout with all of our might
We headed up the mountain to the heights of the heights of the

Heights of the mountain
In the presence of the Lion
Them call it Mount Zion
In the heights of the heights of the

Praise Jah for the length of my day
Babylon come strong but they cannot take away my Love
