Track Name: Sweet Life
This is the sweetest life, sweet sweet life! 2x

Such a paradise, when I live it right! 2x

Must give thanks every day,
Yea sometimes we've got to wipe those tears away,
Live and learn new ways,
To unite our strengths,

We got to help each other out,
got to be our brother's keeper,
We got to help each other out,
See that we control our future, yes you do no one else but you!

Mustn't listen to the wrong man who says it's right,
Also weary bout the right man who says it's wrong,
We must listen to our own heart, heart knows what's right from what is wrong!

Mustn't listen to the wrong man who says it's right,
Also weary bout the right man who says it's wrong,
We must listen to our own heart, heart knows what's right thanks to God!
Track Name: Wise Words
Verse:
He said, “Son, you need to get up get out get something,
You know why? Cause if you don’t somebody’s gon take it
There are no shortcuts to be traveled on,
There are no fallbacks, so travel on

He said, “Fight, fight till you can’t fight no more,
And work, work till there’s nothing left in store”
Show love,
It’s the only thing we’ll always have,
In this life,
Father time, taught me right

Chorus:
Time don’t stand still, life don’t wait,
Every single seconds just ticking away (4x)

Verse
I would not trade my life for gold,
No money’s gonna buy my soul,

(Instrumental)

Verse
And when you’re gone, I’m still here,
I pray your wise words never disappear,
When I’m old, and grey haired,
I pray your wise words never disappear
When you’re gone, and I’m still here,
I pray they see your face in my face clear,

Chorus
Time don’t stand still, life don’t wait,
Every single seconds just ticking away (4x)
Track Name: Wait For Me
You carry me, and I'll carry you down the road
And I'll never be anything you don't see anymore. 2x

Wait, wait, wait for me.
Oh wait, wait, wait for me. 2x

I know you are breathing oh so well,
And you think that I am breathing well too.
I know you are breathing oh so well,
But I have hidden too much,
And now I have to break out of this hell.

Take it off cause this weight it dwells,
Your love is calm and I know it heals. 2x

Wait, wait, wait for me.
Oh wait, wait, wait for me. 2x

Take it off cause this weight it dwells,
Your love is calm and I know it heals. 4x
Track Name: Charleston
The lights went out, inside of my mind,
Tried to fight but it refused to shine
Never knowing when it will fade to black
But these marks on my hands, help remind me of that,

I never knew, the fragility of time
Until the day He almost took mine,
It’s easy to ignore life’s simple signs,
When you’re standing on the firing line
Everyone’s afraid to die

Tears came falling down my face,
Shock and fear stood and stared, as they took me away,
Hard to believe I had a chance at all,
A brother’s instincts, my debt to you I could not repay

I will not forget the risk you took for me that fateful day,
No oh oh, No oh oh, No no no nooooooooooo
Now our lives prevail together, moving closer to the sun,
Whoa oh oh, Whoa oh oh, Whoa oh ohhhhhh-oh-ohhhh
I will not forget.

It was a volt from the blue, mysterious
Two lessons learned, burned in my heart,
It was almost the end, but here I’m singing
Thanks to Him, I now know where to start

I will not forget the miracle that was brought upon that day,
No oh oh, No oh oh, No no no noooooooooooo
How Les Harvey must have felt, that day when he died upon that stage,
Whoa oh oh, Whoa oh oh, Whoa oh ohhhhhh-oh-ohhhhhh
I will not forget.
Track Name: Little Lady (Dub Master Reed Remix)
Goodbye my fears
Hello my Little Lady
Goodbye my tears
I know ya here to save me

Making me feel as though I know,
Right where I’m supposed to be
Telling me all the places I should go,
To be as free as I can be, eeee ee eee ee

She moves and grooves and chooses, this positive attitude, no matter how new the room or music is, she feels it,
Healing every heart with her tender lovingness,
Getting the best of me
Uplifting the burden resting on me, yes yes, ya see
My shoulders are a weighed down,
Due to these demons of doubt disturbing my concerning conscious clouds, rain now down on my body, mind, and spirit…how fortunate are we, to be here harmoniously, under this giving tree

Goodbye my fears
Hello my Little Lady
Goodbye my tears
Know ya here to save me

Making me feel as though I know,
Right where I’m supposed to be
Telling me all the places I should go,
To be as free as I can be, eeee ee eee ee
Track Name: Sky Is Falling
Verse 1:
I think the sky is falling; I see the clouds beneath my head,
Some call it living for the moment, I call it living like I am blessed,
We should all learn to believe our soul, instead of war and presidents,
Lies ‘n misconceptions leading us to be blind to what comes next,

Verse 2:
Did you hear the sky is falling? Can you see the clouds beneath our heads?
The presence of rebellion bringing us together with a helping hand,
We all fall down, every once in a while, but the love’s still present,
So reach out, ‘n we’ll figure it out, faith will show us how

Chorus:
The time is now
The time is now
The time is now
Let your voice shine, shine out.

Verse 3:
I feel the sky has fallen underneath my feet, clouds are further down,
The water’s higher now, what’s wrong is right, n’ everything has turned around,
Floods may come, and wash away all that was, but a new sky’s rising,
Here we come, united as one, building our generation,

Chorus
Track Name: Dub Deliah
Verse 1:
An old man downtown, walking, with his eyes upon the ground,
Looking back on memories, wishing he’d done differently,
He knew the choice was hard to make, but he didn’t have the time to waste,
Street signs said move cautiously, he lost control of everything,

Pre-Chorus
So if we all, want it to be,
That our dreams are more than memories,
Well all we need is to believe,

Chorus
Ohdeliah, Ohdeliah, Ohdeliah, Oh-deliah (2x)

Verse 2:
He learned to make it real, by keeping to himself,
Heard what all the “experts” said, listened to his heart instead,
Life goes on until it stops, so live it up kid take a shot
Find what makes you wanna live, go for it I wish I did,

Pre-Chorus
And if you all, want it to be,
That your dreams are more than make believe,
All you need is your own belief

Chorus

Bridge:
And Oh-o-Oh, you know what you’re getting yourself into,
And oh-o-oh, you know I’ll be waiting right here for you,
And oh-o-oh, cause a promise that’s made this way will never change,

Chorus
Track Name: Sweet Reggae
The way she looking at me, I feel us finding us a place people can’t see,
The real intimacy taking our souls from here to there anywhere not scared but beware of those set to tear us apart.

Feel the heat climbing with my heart rate,
Hands shaking uncontrollably, as she grabs ahold of me,
No . Nooohohhh Fear
Whoaohooooohhhh
What’s to fear?

There’s only music,
Sweet reggae music, all right
There’s only music,
Sweet reggae music, all right

You’ll try to find yourself amongst illusions of others,
Lost in the haze of imagination,
Yet how could one hope to help,
Without the union of brothers,
Fighting for the same salvation, vision, just listen,

A piece of my breath, a part of my soul,
Don’t you underestimate the power of word control,
We have our minds, let the truth be told,
Impossible is nothing if we start with a reachable goal.

There’s only music,
Sweet reggae music, all right
There’s only music,
Sweet reggae music, all right

Track Name: Age Of Distractions
I wish I would do, all the things I say I’ll do,
Stuck in my own ways, this time I cannot waste,

Yes I wish I would do, all the things I say I’ll do,
Stuck in my own ways, this time I cannot waste,

We’re living in the Age of Distractions,
Where I complain, but won’t take action,
Yea it’s the Age of Distractions,
So many distractions,
All this silent interaction,
Can’t get no satisfaction,
I pray we take some action!
Track Name: Fixman (Live @ Exit/In 5/3/13)
Verse1:
Well I’m back to get my new fix, what will it be this time?
Deceptive lies misleading signs, lose myself in the blink of an eye
Oh, when will I realize, all these vices got a hold of me.
All this talk of living so right, has got me bent down on my knees,

Chorus:
Mr. Fixman please fix me,
Mr. Fixman, I’m down on my,
Down on my knees,
This urge, it is killing me,
Sure can’t sleep, but I day-dream,
This endless cycle keeps me from being free,

Verse 2:
Well I’m back to get my new fix, what will it be this time?
Pack my bags and just drive, anywhere to free my mind,
Music blasting, windows down, driving circles around this town,
Going some place, I’ve never been, my friends say I can get some help from him,

Chorus:
Mr. Fixman please fix me,
Mr. Fixman, I’m down on my,
Down on my knees,
This urge, it is killing me,
Sure can’t sleep, but I day-dream,
This vicious cycle keeps me from being free,

Verse 3:
Well I’m back to get my new fix, convinced myself it’s my last time,
These six strings, pulling me up again, finding myself after all this time,
Alone again, on the edge of my bed, my best friend and I who have always been,
Helps me admit that there’s nowhere to run, got to take this on head strong,
No more need for the men I’ve seen, learning strength comes from within,
Finally found my own remedy, finally found the only one who can fix me, and that’s me!

Chrous:
Mr. Fixman, I’m fixing me,
Mr. Fixman, I’m up on my,
Up on my feet,
This urge is not getting to me
No more stress, yes, I confess
This Mister made a miracle in a fixing me.
