Tracklist

Addicted

length: 3:32

Intoxicated world, boys and girls.
Fill me up, but not the hint of self mutilation.
And let me blow my brains, go insane.
Throw it in my face, and watch me chase it.
Stimulate, wide awake, need to stop this pain inside my head, cause it's laughing at me.
Injection, explosion, burning as it surges through my vein.

[Chorus]
Cause I, I'm Addicted,
To all the colors that I see, that you hold in front of me.
And you have changed, yeah you have changed me.
Why do I love you when I know, love you when I know,

Your wrong

Over and over-indulges in anyone or anything that makes you feel so alive.
I am electrified, I'm so high, known to all of you, who are just out to get me.
Fascinate, magic state, cast a spell and maybe I might forget who I am.
Cowardice, selfishness, thank you for letting us watch you die.

[Chorus: x2]

Your wrong

Liar! You are a liar!
Liar! You are a liar!

[Chorus: x2]

Your wrong

Shine With Me

length: 3:32

So why don't you come with me
And take a trip to the other side?
Where you and I, we can sing, we can fly
We can dance as the stars go by
And the heavens will open up
With a vision inside 'jah love
The earth, and the moon, and the sun will align
With a voice from the sky above
One love
So come on and shine with me
Like the beautiful star you are.
So come on and shine with me
Shine with me.
Float through the sky,
And look through my eyes
And then you will see what happens.
Nowhere to hide, look deep down inside
In life you must take your chances
Come with me and you will see
My love is like la la la la la...
So come with me and you will see
One love...
So come on and shine with me
Like the beautiful star you are
And leave it behind with me
Cause forever is not that far
So come on and shine with me
Like the beautiful star you are
And leave it behind with me
And shine with me
Shine on, shine on, shine on! one love!
Shine with me
Shine with me

Condescending

length: 4:02

This is not pretend
You have no reason to feel secure
Because this world it waits for no one.
So don't you fool yourself
Get out of this imaginary place you call reality
It's so deceiving
Condescending
If you don't get it your way
You're so condescending.
If we don't do what you say
You're so unforgiving
So tell me once again
How easy it would be if we'd listen to you and just paid attention
So what's the point in you
Showing us your way if we don't even care to be around you or even know you?
I cant do what you say
I can't do it your way
I cant do what you say
I can't do it your way
So unforgiving
Patronizing
Overbearing
You're so unbending
You don't understand me

It Can't Rain Everyday

length: 4:42

This little one tries as hard as she can
Do anything just so she could fit in
She wants a friend so bad she'll do whatever they tell her
To make them smile she would misbehave
But all the while they would laugh in her face
She begins to cry because she thought that they liked her
Even though you feel all alone
It can't rain everyday
It don't rain forever
Your sunshine may be gone but i know
It can't rain everyday
It don't rain forever
He works hard everyday of his life
For his son on the way and his beautiful wife
But today he got a call from his job they got something to tell him.
They laid him off now he's out on the streets
He's got to do what it takes so his family can eat
He can't even look at his wife because he feels like he failed them
Reign down! reign down! reign down! so let it reign down!
Reign down! reign down! reign down on me now!
A young lady's been lost for awhile
But that's ok now she's having a child
She finally got what she wants. she's got someone who loves her
But this morning she woke up in pain.
Nobody had to tell her because she knew right away
So she started to cry because she won't be a mother.
Reign down! reign down! reign down! reign down on me!
Reign down! reign down! reign down!

Kaliforn-Eye-A

length: 4:29
I go where I wanna go
I keep the thang on the down-low
I'm from the south side of Diego till the day that I die;
Better put it on my tombstone
I keep my head to the sky
I'm still living for the sunshine
I got love for the streets and the rest of my homies still doing their time
I mon a burn ina fire ago blaze
Cali livin' for the rest of my days
To over-stand I will stay in jah ways to keep from going insane

[Chorus]
It's all good
It's alright
You wanna ride it ain't no thang that's just how we play
It's all day and all night
We're coming up in the streets of kaliforn-eye-a

You know I've heard it all before
And I don't care about who you know
You see I've been around the world,
Had a lot of good times but ain't nothing like the west coast
I'm staying on my grind
I'm low-riding on the west-side
I'm laid back in the cut
Everybody know whats up so I'm feeling alright
I mon a burn ina fire ago blaze
Cali livin' for the rest of my days
To over-stand I will stay in jah ways to keep from going insane

All day
All night
Alright

[Chorus: x2]

[Vamp (Mike Muir)]
You have any idea what this is
West coast legendary
Organized family business
Here we go baby!

Ive been think of taking
Another bundle of silence
To figure out
Just who I am
It ain't no body's fault
Its where your from
They must have knew conscious
No you should read the charts
Of my environment
Why don't the surgeons just come and remove my soul
Penalty and suicide that how we roll
Thats how we roll
Always figuring out somethin' to say
Its in hour blood kaliforn-eye-a

[Chorus: x2]

All day
All night
Alright
All day
All night

I'll Be Ready

length: 4:43
I gotta keep on movin'
I see dem comin' down hollywood blvd
And they won't stop until dem find me
No time to hide, I just keep ridin' on.
I'm ridin'on...

[Chorus]
When Babylon come for I
Jah know I'll be ready
When the wicked man come for I
Jah know I'll be ready
When Babylon come for,
For I, for I, for I

I'm in the fire out here strugglin'
Rollin' down the sunset strip
Lord it's getting hard but I'm trying
So please forgive me but I'm hustlin' on
I'm hustlin' on...

[Chorus]

[Instrumental]

[Chorus: x2]

When the wicked man come for I
Jah know I'll be ready

End of the World

length: 4:34

It feels like the end of the world
What happen to peace here on earth?
It never gets better but worse
It feels like the end of the world to me
False prophets claim to be the answer
Misleading us and claiming your name
You can see that all the people, they are dying
Hear the rumors of war so blow us all away
Famine in the land of your fathers
Feel the earth giving birth to the dead
In these tribulations, preach his kingdom
And this is how you know that it's the end
It feels like the end of the world
What happen to peace here on earth?
It never gets better but worse
It feels like the end of the world to me
It feels like the end of the world
Are we getting what we deserve?
So take it for what it is worth
Cause it feels like the end of the world to me

This Ain't No Ordinary Love Song

length: 3:43

I don't belong
Too many wrongs
I'm so undeserving.
I'm lost inside confusing minds. a slave to what i'm feeling.
Scared of what i'm thinking. i'm not worried about forgiving you
The simple truth
This ain't no ordinary love song
This love undone
Words left unsung
Now i have become me.
The reasoning escapes my soul that leads to understanding
Loving you to death is stopping someone else from living too
Now it's killing you.
Losing control to all my thoughts
I want to let go but i cannot
This is my love it's all i got
Don't take there in hell i'll rot
This is my love it's all i got

God Forbid

length: 3:55
[x2]
God forbid
That I should lose, lose my mind
God forbid

We have cause to be uneasy
The evil-utionary process has begun in a world that hates you
These secrets revealed belong to us
And when worst comes to worst
My peoples come first

God forbid
That I should lose, lose my mind
God forbid
Insanity is just a thought away
God forbid that I should lose, lose my mind
God forbid
Balancing the good that's left in me

Too many things going wrong around us
Too much to be done and so little time
We're so used to bowing down that we forget how to stand up
And we settle for last in line
But not this time!

God forbid
That I should lose, lose my mind
God forbid

Insanity is just a thought away

Balancing the good that's left in me

God forbid

When Angels & Serpents Dance

length: 3:16
Rhythmically moving
Emotions are rising
Quivering to music
Trembling bodies in song
Go unsteadily sliding
Devious gliding
So beautifully sailing and floating on

Life's real when angels and serpents dance

Twistedly slipping
Radiant soaring
Winding. maliciously creeping
Flowing
Righteous, moral and just.
Deceitful. the creature is crawling
The guardian's flying. the dance is breathing
Who's leading?

[chorus]

Who's leading you?
Everything you say?
Everything that you do?
Believing what is true?
One must lead in the dance
Who's leading you?

[chorus]

Tell Me Why

length: 3:19

A day with no glory
A heart filled with fear
Still repeating his-story to make ourselves clear
A voice is unheard when it shouts from the hills
Your king in his castle never died on these fields
There's blood on you hands
A smile on your face
A wicked intention when there's money to be made
A room with no windows and a heart that can't feel
Shame with no convictions and a view to a kill.
Tell me why?
Why must we fight?
And why must we kill in the name of what we think is right?
No more! no war!
Cause how do you know?
The hate in your eyes
The lies on your tongue
A hand that kills the innocent
So quick to do wrong
Your belly is full while we fight for what remains
The rich getting richer while the poor become slaves
We kill our own brothers
The truth is never told
If victory is freedom then the truth is untold
Surrender your soul just like everyone else
If love is my religion, don't speak for myself
How do you know?
I'm living this life
I'm given these lies
And how can i die for the name of what you think is right?
No more! oh lord!
How do we know?

Rise Against

length: 4:52

What's the point in knowing?
What's the use in going on
If all you do is nothing?
What is it you're showing
To all the people looking on?
Leaving us with nothing.
Just a voice with no sound
What's holding you down?
Rise against!
Rise up for what is right!
Stand alone!
Are you willing to try?
Rise against!
Stand up for what is right!
One man alone!
Are you willing to die?
What's the point in living?
What's the use in moving on
If you keep pretending
Like there's nothing wrong?
What is it you're giving
To all of us who wait and hope
For someone we can follow?
If you lead i'll go
But only you know.
What's the point in knowing
If all you do is nothing?
What's the point in living
If you keep pretending?
If you lead i'll go
But only you know
