Track Name: Soldier Man
SOLDIER MAN

VERSE 1

Long ago you fought with bows and arrows
Gun powder come then you lighted up the cannons
Heavy ammunition and Nuclear bombs
Guided missiles don't know when they come

Used to go to war on horseback riding
Sharpening your sword till it sharp like lightning
Didn't need to run cause the bullet won't come
But the rock of the catapult burns

CHORUS

Hey soldier man(hey hey hey soldier)
It's been a long long time
Long long time (long long time)
Hey soldier man(hey hey hey soldier)
They say you's a dangerous man

VERSE 2

But those days are over defending the castle
Boarding a ship to a far away battle
You wake up at dawn to the sound of the horn
And you groom your horse so it can run and run

Without no fear you used to be a hero
But nowadays not far away from zero
Dem lock you away in a mental home
Tell me what you gonna do now

CHORUS

BRIDGE x 2

Soldier man put down your gun (soldier soldier)
Wake up when the morning comes (danger danger)

OUTRO

What you gonna do now
What you gonna do now
What you gonna do now
What you gonna do now
Track Name: Belong
BELONG

Verse 1

What am i to do to belong
Am i to old am i too wretched
Am i too young

Everywhere me go they try to bring me down
Don't know of i scan take it no more
I have to be strong


Verse 2

Its been so long that i've been out here
No smile, no love, nobody cares
My only friend is called despair
I tried and i tried so hard
Its so unfair
Verse 2

They said live you life and don't regret
That if you work hard enough
That you will get

But are you ready
See to live and forget
That by the time you've work enough
Another will take

Chorus x 5

Wherever you go
Keep treating you so

Left out in the cold
Sleeping on the road

Dem tell me
Are you ready, you ready, you ready
To live and forget
Don't Bring, don't bring me, don't bring me down
Track Name: Repatriate your dollars
Repatriate your dollars

All you thieves of the nation
Why don't you bring back your dollar bills
We're going to start the investigation
You are under arrest for being a threat

Chorus

Repatriate your dollars x4

Verse

No more houses in Buguma
No more killings in Dawaki
No more misappropriation
Let's fight to end this corruption


No more houses in Johannesburg
No more christmas in New york
No more swiss bank accounts
Steal so much don't know the amount


Presidential suite in Dubai
Holiday home in Hawaï
Private jets tearing through the sky
While people at home continue to die

No more false contracts and promises
No more bogus speeches and philosophies
As a matter of fact you didn't even go to school
You managed to pass buying your way through
Track Name: What shall be blessed
WHAT SHALL BE BLESSED

Verse 1

People we live in a world of war times
Because of differences built in our mind
Killing one another for hope

One's life you take away you have no right
Instead of building peace we fight
Where's the world gonna go

Chorus x2

What shall be blessed, shall bless
What shall be moved, shall move
What a man can do, he shall do
But let it all be good

Verse 2

The secret is to love one another
$Because your neighbour is your own brother
He shares the same world with you

So put your arms down your bombs and yoUr nuclear weapons
Who destroy life and cause confusion
Peace in this world we live

Chorus x2

Verse 3

Your father and mother taught you to be good
Took care of you and provided food
In return for them what do you do

You go out there you steal you see an enemy you kill
So violent at will
What's up with you

Chorus x2
Track Name: Winds Blowing
WINDS BLOWING

Chorus x 2

The winds blowing
The winds blowing
The Bells ringing
The times coming

Verse 1

Children tell me why me feel so tired
Like me locked up in a prison up inna me mind
Looking for a reason to say goodbye
Get lost inna di ocean inna di deep blue sky

Thought money made the world go round
Amazing grace but i haven't been found
Open my heart singing this song
The time has come but my soul is gone

Chorus x 2

Verse 2

In this life we all the same
So why do people act as if dem know everything
They want to tell you what is right or wrong
What happened to the people who before dem were born

Thought money made the world go round
Amazing grace but i haven't been found
Open my heart singing this song
The time has come but my soul is gone

Chorus x 2

Bridge X 2

Deep inna di ghetto you be feeling my pain
You have to go on and you can't complain
No matter what dem do, no matter what dem say
The wicked system we a go burn down today

Chorus

Where the wind
Where the wind blowing
Blow out

Winds blowing reponse
Bells ringing
Winds blowing
Times coming
Track Name: Tell me why
TELL ME WHY

VERSE 1

Bombs and guns
Dem a kill people and destroy their homes
It's been so long
So much violence it can't be undone

When you see what happened in Rwanda
When you see what happened in Armenia
When you see what's happening in Gaza
Babylon system is taking over

CHORUS

Tell me why
People dem kill for fun
Tell me why
Do wars go on and on
Tell me why
Hatred is the worst time bomb
Tell me why
Together we burn babylon

VERSE 2

All this wars
For no reason for no purpose
Dem establish laws
Violate our freedom to rule the world

Say no to the babylon sytem
We shall come together
With the fire we will burn dem
Say no to continuous opression
Emancipate yourself

CHORUS

VERSE 3
Bombs and guns
Dem a kill people and destroy their homes
It's been so long
So much violence it can't be undone

When you see
When you see
When you see

CHORUS


OUTRO

Everywhere the fire is burning (Tell me why)
Bombs and guns are raging (Tell me why)
Everywhere the fire is burning (Tell me why )
Bombs and guns are raging (Tell me why )
