Track Name: Freedom
When I took I-90 west I had nothing to confess, nothing but the blues blues blues blues..
And now I'm in the city, living it ain't easy, nothing but the blues blues blues blues blues
Said I got freedom on my mind, freedom from the chains of minimum wage.
Someday, I'm gonna live up on a hill, and kick it with my kids down by the pool.

Cause I'm
wasting all my time,
workin for a nickel and a dime
Music's my remedy, and I'll sing it yes I'll sing it till my soul she's free..

on and on and on.. trying to get it together

Sombody said they seen me on the street, but my hair was turned to my feet.
Well it's just been one thing after another, I can't seem to grow no roots in this town.
I got freedom on my mind, freedom from the chains of playin the game.
Someday, I'll make a lot more money than all the bosses that I had.

Cause I'm
wasting all my time,
workin for a nickel and a dime
Music's my remedy, and I'll sing it yes I'll sing it till my soul she's free..

Never need to go to church she is my lord in a power chord.
Never need to drink no wine she fills my day with sweet sunshine.
She makes me feel alright,
Day and night,
She is my pride and joy..
till my soul she's free..
Track Name: Time With You
Sittin here, doing fine, playing my music all the time.
The sun is shining almost every day, but I'm too scared to walk your way.
My head is bobbing, my heart is throbbing, I don't know if I can take this anymnore.
I want to look into your eyes, feel time slip and slide, I want to hold your hand and let you know I'm your man..
(chorus)
Ba bo ba ba de ba da bo do,...
I just want to spend some time with you, have you listen to my rhyme.
I want to do the little things that make you smile all the time, feel so free now baby, I want to make you mine.
want to, need to, spend some time with you
want to, need to, spend some time with you
(chorus)
Ba ba .....
talking bout you, talking bout me,
in the sunshine, yeah..
I know that I can make you so happy
and I know that you make me so free
There's no hurry,
I don't want you to worry.
I'll be right here, all the time..
want to, need to, spend some time with you
want to, need to, spend some time with you..
(chorus)
Ba ba da bo....
Track Name: Come And Go
Whoh whoh...

You are so sweet,
Sweet as the sun
You warm me up,
Since the day's begun.

Now the rain has fallen and washed this love away
the seeds are planted, what grows is here to stay.

Whoh..
warm me up now...

(solos)

Whoh...

They come and go now,
like changing of seasons,
they come and go now,
like passing of fashions.

A long time ago, I drank from the fountain.
There is a love that lasts after the fruit is rotten.

they come and go...
whoah..
we go dancing, we go singing...
whoah...
Track Name: More
the best way to win someone over is to suffocate their will
bury thier indecent culture till they're demoralized and ill
no food, no faith, no family,
no growth of body or mind
tell the people of your genorisity
as you shorten the check-out line

still we want more and more
still we want more and more
still we want more till there's nothing but war

shouldn't we all be grateful
for a saviour like uncle sam
sifting grains to his neighbors
through the cracks of his white wrinkled hand
providing guns for their protection
asking oil in return
and if they can't give they will give in,
as they watch their homeland burn
as they watch their homeland burn..

After the bloodshed what have we gained?
imaginary comfort, created by pain.
after the bloodshed, what have we gained?
Chaos in the homeland, we put a puppet in command.

still we want more and more
still we want more and more
still we want more till there's nothing but war

more and more and more and more and more and more and more...

Universal Overstanding future present and past,
Our roots rap revelation everlast.
I and I bathe in the vibes the lion done cast.
We saunter up to our dreams,
relinquished and reborn,
refreshed and retorn from the start,
spiriling like serpents toward our earthly lives.
Landing where the conscious survives reason,
On the island where sensual stays the season.
We pray for a moment to inhale our glory,
while the clouds we conceive reveal our story.
And on and on and on to the sunrise glow
Spinning out love everlasting in a song of light..

On and on and on and on...
Track Name: Soul Clappin'
Hey little thing, hey little thing,
sure look good in the summertime.
Skirt's up high, well above the thigh,
bellybutton show and tell time.

Come on baby, don't say maybe,
come on baby, don't say maybe,
come on baby, don't say maybe,
come on baby, don't say maybe.

Woke up this morning, sunshine laid across my face,
had this funny feeling that that sunshine, done took your place.
Give me one more try,
this time I ain't passing you by.
You know I got what you need (I know you got what I need)
I know you got what I need (you know I got what you need)

Love can strike like lightning, or it can age like wine,
sifting through the sands, never know just what you'll find.
(what you find)
I'm just searching, search the whole damn world...

Soul clappin, clap you hands,
Soul singing, sing a song.
Soul clappin, clap you hands,
Soul singing, sing a song.
Soul clappin, clap you hands,
Soul singing, all night long.
Soul clappin, clap you hands,
Soul singing, sing a song.

I ain't talkin bout marridge,
Lord know I been there before.
I like takin my like all night long when I roast those chestnuts in the fire.
Just seeing you smile now, just seeing you move,
I know you're all right, all right, all day and all night.

Can't you see I'm a better man,trying to get things right,
think of the love we used to have before you start to fight.
Just like a bird up in the trees, I'm doing my very best,
to sing a song and wait for you to take me to your nest.

Come on come on...
Soul clappin, clap you hands,
Soul singing, sing a song.
Soul clappin, clap you hands,
Soul singing, sing a song.
Soul clappin, clap you hands,
Soul singing, sing a song.
Soul clappin, clap you hands,
Soul singing, sing a song.

baby don't go, baby don't go, baby don't go,
stay a litte longer.....
