should I die cracking all my bones well I’d love you to know I’m giving back my soul and I’m treading my way home nothing’s left untold Jah takes back my soul life we are borrowing life love we are pondering love light we were dust we’ll be light so don’t you cry humans question time but are never divine still have a light in I we’re treading our way home the truth was written and told Jah takes back our soul
2.
I’m kind of trying to get out of here I’m trying to get rid of foolish ideas ‘cause for so long I’ve been treating my heart like a ghost and I’ve been seeking the words that I lost now you can be horrified as much as you like but that’s the way things go between you and I you can call me a liar and I well I’ll get straight to the point and tell you the reason why believe me nothing I said was unreal but acknowledge that we never signed any deal and for too long I’ve been treating my heart like a ghost and I misused every office and post I’ve been seeking the words that I lost abusing the ones I love the most

he waved hello silent like a mime we met there’s no changing my mind I won’t walk the stairs with you tonight going nowhere the clock moved a quarter of a turn the time it took a cigarette to burn she said you’ve got a lot of things to learn going nowhere I saw you move a certain way missed you a lot return to this abandoned place should’ve been forgot echoes drown the conversation out echoes that only seem to bring about a silent expression things you may allow going nowhere the steps made a pattern I had never seen I felt like a kid of six or seventeen I was off in some empty daydream going nowhere it’s dead and gone matter of fact maybe for the best said some things you can’t take back honestly I guess the old records sitting on the floor the ones I can’t put on anymore he walked over to her like before going nowhere

taste it black as it is on your tongue despite your prejudiced soul meet this darkness leaking down your throat is it blood plums iron or salt? no it’s this town you know it’s this town here comes the paradox things you hate might be the ones that you like don’t you laugh after this paradox it’s like cold dead ice being the source of all life epiglottis uprising against your choice you dreadful foolish old boy now there’s nuclear warfare invading your mouth with its blood plums iron and salt because it’s this town you know it’s this town
5.
you say you never lose control and you say I do then your tears come down and even when I lay with you you cry just never let me go well there were times when I tried to please you and still your tears came down despite my full-time praise my full-time praising you’re crying a little too often you’re crying a little too much losing you I wouldn’t gain the world still you say I’d do and your walls crash down and then you say you’ll miss me more more than I could do you cry just never let me go and there were times when I tried to please you and still your tears came down so I now lie and I lie to deceive you
6.
you will see them all in the distance when the sun goes down you’ll see their silhouette makes no movement to our man-sized eyes some say rocks can walk but they lie hills are still here even warriors and nightmares will roll away lasting less than the scariest lightning should they last longer they would die but hills are still here

Sorcerer 05:43
I am a simple man but I wrote this one for you for you to think about your past and plan your future too I’m not a sorcerer and I have no spell for you I can’t erase your all-night fears but I’ll try to play my part too so here I am just call me whenever you want to in your despair here I am and I’ll run as fast as I need to and here I am just call me whenever you want to in your despair here I am and I’ll forget myself if I need to I am a simple man and I have my troubles too I’ll try to overcome my past and plan my future too I’m not your rescuer and I have no passe-partout I can’t erase your all-night fears but I’ll try to play my part too
8.
nightmares come true and now you are alone a lighthouse all alone are waves now roaring? melodies won’t make it right this time you know you need a sign you ain’t a fisherman’s wife mourning I was avoiding distraction to please you alone but I’m no Ulysses’ disciple so I sang along do you remember lazy morning love? your heart in chains, your body well wide open so how dare you now say you miss all of those depleting fights deceiving and fake moaning?
9.
Wings 02:21
the fear of becoming again just a number framed in a blanket of clouds with no thunder lost in a city from wake until slumber wings are just wings but planes are the place where we belong am I waiting or wasting my time? am I wasting my time?
10.
His Father 05:57
his father is passing away and he coughs all night long my mother won’t kiss me goodbye for on the same bed we stay for on the same bed we lie but there’s one thing I can’t recall there’s only one answer I’d love to know are we running away? will we make it through the gate? will we run, run, run away? my friend keeps on saying that she’s great and she says everything’s fine everything’s great but her man doesn’t look quite the same ‘cause he’s down on talent and pride needles and shame are neglected responsibilities what me and my people run from? distracted from topicalities are we losing the sense of our role?
11.
I am writing to you from the place where you just never dare to sitting inside your static balloon wasting your time things I miss from you in the things you and I do crash music and life too but I am now field marshal and you? do you want to battle? ‘cause otherwise here is my tactic scheme I’m going to withdraw my army and come I’ll buy cigarettes and wine and then we’ll go where we are no one I am tired of pursuing you so hopefully my words will eventually bloom and I already spent a fortune in bullets and shields for my platoons so still you want battle? ‘cause otherwise here is my tactic scheme I’m going to withdraw my army and come I’ll buy cigarettes and wine and then we’ll go to the place where we belong just to show that we’re like no one
12.
Jah Guide 05:34
once I got lost down in my mind and no friend was around no friends at all the wind screamed up my name the snow made me numb stars shone pale and white then Jah gave me a call and I said Jah is I guide I say darling Jah is I guide all the time and you? did you lose your guidance? well Jah provides one it has gold green and red eyes and an almighty heart and wolves are ‘round still sheep never fall and lucifer never lurks when Jah is I guide so I say Jah is I guide I say Jah is I guide all the time so the lord I call every time I said I might be lost still Jah is I guide and I light ‘cause I might be lost still Jah is I compass and guide Jah is I guide and I light and I say Jah is I guide
