Jah Sending Out

ahh uuuuhhh ahh uuuhhh ahhh

Jah sending out animals to walk by day
and all who crawl and creep he give night
A Heavens to light my way
throughout the darkest regions of life
Send us a anchor to hold our weight
Throughout the constant shifting tide
Man's got so much things to say
While we hardly speak of the right

(Bridge)

Who'll dream with me
In vision of unity
Of love to be
This burdens surround me
All who volunteer
Quietly disappear
With no safety net
We'll slave from the plow to this precipice

Jah sending out animals to walk by day
and all who crawl and creep he give night
A Heavens will light my way
throughout the darkest regions of life
Send us a anchor to hold our weight
Throughout the constant shifting of tide
We've got so much things to say
While we hardly speak of the right

(Bridge)
Who'll dream with me
In vision of unity
Of love to be
While burden surrounds me
All who volunteer
Suddenly reappear
With no safety net
We'll stray from the crowd to this place of rest

(solo sax)

(Outro)
Cooler winter blowing yeah
Hotter summer coming woy
Cooler winter blowing yeah
Hotter summer coming woy

Roller Coaster
with Bernard Collins (Abyssinians) harmony trio

To the ocean people we will go
When the band starts playing real, real slow
My people will roll on like a roller coaster
On like a roller coast my people will roll

(horn melody)
(guitar solo)

To the ocean people we will go
When the band starts playing real, real slow
My people will roll on like a roller coaster
On like a roller coast my people will roll

Mind of Man

Poisoned was his mind and shallow was his reasoning he was too young then
Behind these bars and walls and without food and water but one day his ship would sail

something had to occupy the time of man, the time of man, oh the time of man
something had to hypnotize the mind of man, the mind of man, oh the mind of man
The mind of man, the time of man

Remembering all those days and nights when he use to call out but no one was there
Only silence in the world and horror was the atmosphere dressing him in full on rage

something had to occupy the time of man, the time of man, oh the time of man
something had to take away the mind of man, the mind of man, oh the mind of man
the mind of man, the time of man

(Keys Synth Solo: Obeah)

So after years and years his mind hungers for revenge until he's finally a pone in their game
telling him "once you give your life beyond there lies a world of endless fortune the land of milk and honey"

something had to occupy the time of man, the time of man, oh the time of man
something had to hypnotize the mind of man, the mind of man, oh the mind of man
the mind of man, the time of man (repeat out)

Intifada

Everybody sees you
Building all your walls
I'm hoping that you are
counting your blessings

People on the street
Hating what they see
Hope is running thin
No one to believe in

Man it's the sign of an Intifada
Oh the sign of an Intifada
You can see the sign of an intifada
Oh the sign of an intifada
Everybody

Everybody dies
Nothing ever lasts
Fearing everyone
Nothing to rely on

Hating what they see
cursing all of them
Hope is running thin
No one to believe in

Oh it's the sign of an Intifada
Man it's the sign of an Intifada
You can see the sign of an intifada
Oh it's the sign of an intifada
Everybody

I'm calling out to all Semitic Nations
What about the next generation
I'm calling out to all Semitic Nations
Think about the younger generation
hungry! with no education
No where! free elections (2x)

East Jerusalem

(verse)
East Jerusalem is cold at night
East Jerusalem is cold at night
Jerusalem is cold at night
We dream of home

Give all you got man and don't look back
Winner take all and that's a fact
I hope you are alright with that
We want a home

Politician they don't run I
Do all they could still they can't surmise
How the people have lost their minds
In need of home

(Bridge)
When will we see equality?
will there ever be true democracy?
will man find his resting place?
A rock of safety for each race?

(verse)
Speak your mind and be proud of that
Oh Palestine, I dream of that
You made up like a diplomate
Bailing in the street near your home

By candle light man we read and write
Each rainy night for an equal right
Watching our word turn into physical fight
Telling you to leave us alone

East Jerusalem is cold at night
East Jerusalem is cold at night
Jerusalem is cold at night
We want a home

(Bridge)
What is this economy?
If all is for you what is left for me?
Where will we find the fire light?
To keep us warm, to keep us thinking right.

Jew and gentle shall come to pass
Upon the Earth man they ever last
Israel walks in the future and past
From Abraham to Rome

Lebanon, Jordan, and Syrian fast
for the feast that will come to pass
Isaac and Ishmael are neighbors at last
Celebration of "home"

East Jerusalem is cold at night
East Jerusalem is cold at night
Jerusalem is cold at night
We dream of home

Madness

(URoy)
Well I see a whole lot of madness going on around the world
so we got to teach it to the boys and we got to teach it to the girls
to be conscious in this time, back off with your madness I tell you

A whole lot of madness my friends
A whole lot of madness going on in the Earth again
This is madness my friend
We are alone let's not pretend
Once given all the pieces you'll achieve the end
That is madness my friend
We're not here to hate but only to defend
All free choices of the will of Men

(Bridge)
and if they see me walking beside them
They act like they don't see me
We all are from the same father, same family
Why can't we live in peace?

I turned around and watched him walk away
This is madness my friend
a whole lot of madness going on in the Earth right now
This is madness I said
A whole lot of madness going on in the Earth again

(Bridge)
So if you ever find me there?
Will you come to seek me as friend oh no?
Will you see the rainbows end?
or are you blinded by your faith? Tell me, tell me now…

(URoy)
So I want America, Palestine, and Israel to have some peace in mind
And that would be so very fine like I would a tell you
back off Babylon with your ism and schism we na want no more of that
We are children of the Most High JAH
You got to understand in this time like I would a tell you

A whole lot of madness my friends
A whole lot of madness going on in the Earth again
This is madness my friends
We are alone let's not pretend
Once given all the pieces you'll achieve the end
This is madness my friend
We're not here to hate but only to defend
All free choices of the will of Men

(Bridge)
You, come looking for safety?
you will find no where at all
and so it shall be forever more
you will be barred infinitely from our society

This is madness my friend
a whole lot of madness going on in the Earth right now
This is madness I said
A whole lot of madness going on in the Earth again

Right On
feat. Winston McAnuff

Here we are today without knowledge we'll fall
Still I will never be the one to heed my enemy's call
Everybody right on, right on
It's not what you see
my little brother right on
Everybody right on, right on
My little brother right on, right on
Bring my stone, bring my hammer down
Bring my stone, bring my hammer down
From Mt. Zion, Mount Zion
From Mount Zion, Mount Zion
Everybody right on, right on
Watch what you see
my little brother right on
everybody right on, right on
oh right on, everybody right on

(guitar solo)
(Winston)
Ishmael and Isaac, Israel and Palestine
please draw a line, a line, a line
Ishmael and Isaac, Israel and Palestine
Brothers are you blind?

Here we are today without knowledge we'll fall
Still I will never be the one to heed my enemies call
Everybody right on, right on
watch what you see, my little brother right on
Everybody right on, right on
Oh right on, right on
Bring my stone, bring my hammer down
Bring my stone, bring my hammer down
From Mt. Zion, Mount Zion
From Mount Zion, Mount Zion
Everyone right on, right on
Everybody right on, right on
watch what you see, my little brother right on
oh right on, right on
everybody!

See How They Run
feat. Ashanti Roydel Johnson (the Congos)

See how they run
From the ends of this Earth
To Jerusalem
Oh Jah-Jah just bring them come

A hundred nations call
in a hundred different tongues
Through the gates of Jerusalem
Calling out to Kingdom come

A thousand morning bells
Casting a hundred million spells
Of a time still to come
Oh Jerusalem

Everybody see how they run
From the ends of this Earth
To Jerusalem
Oh Jah-Jah just bring them come
run come, come, come, come

(guitar solo)

Salem, Salem, Salem
Jeru, Jeru, Jeru
When will it ever become
A city of peace and freedom?

Millions of souls have fought
To the stark and tribal ledge
Where David from the tribe of Judah said
Behold Jerusalem!

Everybody see how they run
From the ends of this Earth
To Jerusalem
Oh Jah-Jah just bring them come
run come, come, come, come
(vocalization)
