Track Name: In Time
Music of our Hearts is our Roots Music
And Silence of our mouth is our Roots Silence
Magic of our Lives is our Roots Magic
And Freedom of our Minds is our Roots Freedom

But always In Time
Everything In Time
Everything is placed In Time
Everything is placed In Time

As a Moon walks all night on the sky
Everything is placed In Time
Everything is placed In Time

Oh Child – you don’t even know
How much I want you to understand
That if Mind is free – every other thing is much better
That if Mind is free – every other thing is much better
Is much better

Better In Time
Is better In Time
Everything is placed In Time
Everything is placed In Time

Just as a Moon walks all night upon the sky
Everything is placed In Time
Everything is placed In Time
Track Name: The Prophet
Can you show me the way to the Prophet
I want to know this Truth quite clear
Where is the way to the Prophet
I want him speak to me the prophecy

Can you show me the way to the Prophet
I want to know this Truth quite clear
Where is the way to the Prophet
I want him speak to me the prophecy

Something about my Name and the Line
And how long is that Line
And how long will I be able to walk on it
Who’s the Big Mouth
Who’s talking to the Prophet
Who is He and where is He

So, can you show me the way to the Prophet
I want to know this Truth quite clear
Where is the way to the Prophet
I want him speak to me the prophecy

Can you show me the way to the Prophet
I want to know this Truth quite clear
Where is the way to the Prophet
I want him speak to me the prophecies

Something about that Blood
Witch is Runnin Cold
About Pain and Fear
About No Peace
Do I have to believe in something
That I don’t know yet
Do I have to believe in something
Yes in something, yes in something
Well..

Where is the way to this Prophet
I want to know disya Trut quite clear
Where is the way to this Prophet
I want him speak to me the prophecy

Where is the way to the Prophet

Where is the way to Mr. Prophet
Yeah - I want him speak to me the prophecies
Speak to me..
Track Name: Walking Dreamer
No peace in the valley of my life
I’m loving journeys but I didn’t make my mind
So many places where I’d want to go
In search of satisfaction for my soul

No peace in the valley of my life
I’m loving journeys but I didn’t make my mind

I’m a Walkin Dreamer
I’m a Space Walker
I’m a Gentle Screamer
And the Roots Reggae Rocker

Dreaming about this world without corruption
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Being a little water drop inna‘ the ocean
I would say

Ain’t got no hope for being free
Only that guide inside of me
Is the only way to happiness
And he can wipe away my big distress
He’s the only way to happiness

I’m a Walkin Dreamer
I’m a Space Walker
I’m a Gentle Screamer
And the Roots Reggae Rocker

Dreaming about this world without corruption
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Being a little water drop ina the ocean
I would say

Woe, woe, woe I’m dreaming about..

What I dream to do is catch the wind
And fly all over the earth
What I dream to do is catch the wind
And fly – like a flying bird
Track Name: Mysli Swoje
Jesli nawet istnieja granice
Tego co mozna sobie wyobrazic
To i tak, to i tak czesto myslimy
O tym co nie ma granic

Rozne odczucia niezbadane
Wladaja moim cialem
Wieloma regulami mimowolnie zostalem zwiazany

Czasami sie boje ale kiedy sie nie boje – spiewam
Mam mysli swoje – niczego wiecej nie mam

Jesli nawet istnieja granice
Tego co mozna sobie wyobrazic
To i tak, to i tak czesto myslimy
O tym co nie ma granic

Niekiedy mysle o pieknie przyrody
W swej glowie malujac obrazy
A czasem mysle o trudzie czlowieka
Jego bolu szczesciu I pracy

Czasami sie boje ale kiedy sie nie boje – spiewam
Mam mysli swoje – niczego wiecej nie mam

Jesli nawet istnieja granice
Tego co mozna sobie wyobrazic
To i tak, to i tak czesto myslimy
O tym co nie ma granic

I nawet gdyby cos sie stalo
Niechaj nikt po mnie nie placze
Jest bowiem duch, dusza I cialo
Jeszcze kiedys was znow zobacze

Choc czasami sie boje ale kiedy sie nie boje – spiewam
Mam mysli swoje – niczego wiecej nie mam

Mam pragnienia swoje – niczego wiecej nie mam
Mam piesni swoje – niczego wiecej nie mam
Mam pragnienia swoje – niczego – niczego wiecej
Mam piesni swoje – niczego wiecej
Track Name: Naked Man
Right after I did something very, very bad
Faces of people – while dem walkin‘ pon de street
I can see
I have some pangs of conscience and regret
And you know – meseems that eyes of all those,
All those people are concentratet pon me

And then I feel like I’m a -
Naked Man – in the middle of nettles
You know – I feel like I’m a -
Naked Man – in the middle of nettles
A Naked Man – in the biggest of life stages
Lord! The only one fool – fool in society of sages

The voice of my guilty conscience
Is the greater judge
And still lingers – lingers in my head
And reminds ‘bout what I did so bad
And still lingers – lingers in my head

I can not drink – I don’t wanna talk and eat
‘cause you know – there is just – there is something bad
There is something bad in me now
It won’t let me even sleep

And then I don’t know how -
How could I be so foolish
Now the pain is getting, gettin‘ gettin‘ stronger
To do it – was just a little second
But to fix – it’s gonna take much longer

So now I feel like I’m a -
Naked Man – in the middle of nettles
You know – I feel like I’m a -
Naked Man – in the middle of nettles
A Naked Man – in the biggest of life stages
My Good Lord! The only one fool – fool in society of sages

The voice of my guilty conscience
Is the greater judge
And still lingers – lingers in my head
And reminds ‘bout what I did so bad
And still lingers – lingers in my head

If I’d know before my mistake
How it’s gonna feel right after..
I will never, never do it again
I will never, never do it again

But wise man said
– if I’d know where I will tumble down
I would lay down on that place for couple minutes
And after that – stand up and walk away

Now me seh – hey, young breda
I want encourage you fe truth
Me seh now – hey, young breda
Mistakes are privilege of the youth

Only experience teaches wisdom...
Track Name: Zapamietaj Chwile
Czas goni nas – my gonimy czas
On uplywa – tak, czas uplywa
Chcielibysmy by blisko byli
Ci co od zawsze sa blisko nas
Ale oni odchodza – tak juz bywa

Najwazniejsze jest bys zapamietal chwile
Te w ktorych bylo Ci dobrze – w ktorych byles szczesliwy
Najwazniejsze jest bys czul sie szczesliwy
I zeby bylo Ci dobrze kiedy wspomnisz te chwile

Nikt nie wroci tego co juz bylo
I nikt nie wie co wnet nastanie
Zycie ludzi to wspominanie,
Trwanie i oczekiwanie

Najwazniejsze jest bys zapamietal chwile
Te w ktorych bylo Ci dobrze – w ktorych byles szczesliwy
Najwazniejsze jest bys czul sie szczesliwy
I zeby bylo Ci dobrze kiedy wspomnisz te chwile

Samotnosc jest straszna
Malo kto lubi byc sam
Przyjazn jest piekna
Prawdziwa jest niezmienna

Najwazniejsze jest bys zapamietal chwile
Te w ktorych bylo Ci dobrze – w ktorych byles szczesliwy
Najwazniejsze jest bys czul sie szczesliwy
I zeby bylo Ci dobrze kiedy wspomnisz te chwile
Track Name: ...Te Chwile
...te Chwile
Track Name: Nie Musisz Uciekac
Ja jestem w stanie to dobrze zrozumiec
Ale nikomu nie jest latwo
Ja to bardzo dobrze rozumiem – ja to rozumiem

Ja jestem w stanie to dobrze zrozumiec
Ale po coz robic sobie cos zlego
Ja to bardzo dobrze rozumiem – ja to rozumiem

Nigdzie nie – nie musisz uciekac
Wszystko dobrze skonczy sie
Ty nigdzie nie – nie musisz uciekac
Tylko spokojnie – spokojnie

Ja jestem w stanie to dobrze zrozumiec
Ale przeciesz nikt nie ma wplywu na to
Ja to bardzo dobrze rozumiem – ja to rozumiem

Ja jestem w stanie to dobrze zrozumiec
Ale kazdy sam wybiera sobie droge
Ja to bardzo dobrze rozumiem – ja to rozumiem

Nigdzie nie – nie musisz uciekac
Wszystko dobrze skonczy sie
Ty nigdzie nie – nie musisz uciekac
Tylko spokojnie – spokojnie

Mozesz uciec przed tysiacem dziwnych spraw
Ale przed soba nie
Mozesz uciec przed mnostwem dziwnych spraw
Przed soba nie da sie

Mozesz uciec przed tysiacem brudnych spraw
Ale przed soba nie
Mozesz uciec przed mnostwem dziwnych spraw
Przed soba nie da sie

Nigdzie nie – nie musisz uciekac
Wszystko dobrze skonczy sie
Ty nigdzie nie – nie musisz uciekac
Tylko spokojnie
Track Name: Stranger On Earth
Whatever is, has already been
And what will be, has been before
In the place of judgment – wickedness was there
In the place of justice – wickedness was there

But I’m a Soul Rebel from ever since
And I came to realise that – people have to get wise

I’m a Stranger on Earth – Stranger on Earth
And still looking for – place without rats and dirt
A country of my own
Yes, I’m a Stranger on Earth – Stranger on Earth
And still looking for – place without rats and dirt
A country of my own

All comes from dust – you know
And to dust all returns
Fire of Babylon covers the Earth
Keep in touch with God or you gonna get burned

For I’m a Doppie Conqueror from ever since
And I came to realise that – people have to get wise

I’m a Stranger on Earth – Stranger on Earth
And still looking for – place without rats and dirt
A country of my own
Yes, I’m a Stranger on Earth – Stranger on Earth
And still looking for – place without rats and dirt
A country of my own

Blind Guides at the head of Nations
Are pushing us – pushing us
Into tribulation

But we’re not the pawns,
We’re more than sand on the seashore
So – if you are holding us, provoking us
And won’t let go – then this is all I know
Then this is all I know

I’m a Stranger on Earth – Stranger on Earth
And still looking for – place without rats and dirt
A country of my own
Yes, I’m a Stranger on Earth – Stranger on Earth
And still looking for – place without rats and dirt – a country of my own
Track Name: Love Jah
This song I’m singing is not strictly mine
This is the voice of all Mankind
‘cause in between all those lies, that we can hear
So difficult to find peace of mind and the right gear
That’s why all we got to do is -

Love Jah – Love and Live
And give Love to the people
As much as we can give
Make every day brighter
By spreading Love
That’s how we can conquer the system – conquer the World!

This Light of Mount Zion is shining so bright
Sword of Love in my hand is ready to fight
Jah People don’t get weary – we got to move on
Because THIS PLACE WHERE WE ARE LIVING
IS NOT WHERE WE BELONG – IS NOT OUR HOME!
That’s why all we got to do is –

Love Jah – Love and Live
And give Love to the people
As much as we can give
Make every day brighter
By spreading Love
That’s how we can conquer the system – conquer the World!

In my storage room I gotta hand made bomb
And the gunpowder in – is A Pure, True Love
Me a go bomb the system untill him fall down
Me a go crash Babylon with the Reggae Song

Let Jah Love grow in our Heart and Soul
Let it happen in the Natural Progression
Let Jah Love cover this Earth
Spread Love –
While you’re trodding through the Roads Creation

Love Jah – Love and Live
And give Love to the people
As much as we can give
Make every day brighter
By spreading Love
That’s how we can conquer the system – conquer the World!
Track Name: Niebo Nastaje
Dlaczego czuje lzy
I czemu zasadzki sie boje
I jadu w trawionym szkle
Boje sie – Jadu

Taki dzien nastaje i wszystko daje
Wystarczy tylko wyciagnac dlonie
Taka noc nastaje ktora wszystko daje
Wystarczy tylko wyciagnac dlonie

Dlaczego czuje swe dni
I czemu, im bardziej je czuje
Tym mocniej – stoje tam gdzie stoje
Tym chetniej – ide tam gdzie ide

Niebo nastaje i wszystko daje
Wystarczy tylko wyciagnac dlonie
Tak ono nastaje – ono wszystko daje
Wystarczy tylko wyciagnac dlonie
Track Name: Time In
When I’m behind the steering wheel
I feel like I’m controlling everything
But when I’m back down on my feet
I feel like everything’s controlling me

Who knows what is true and what is dream
Who knows what is illusion, what is real
Only Time is the master of all things
And he rules the whiles, he rules the memories

I mean that Time – Free Time
Is really good friend of mine
In him I’m riding and rolling – rising and falling

I mean that Time – Free Time
Is really good friend of mine
In him I’m riding and rolling – rising and falling

Is that what you wanna hear ?
Is that what you wanna hear ??
Is that what you wanna hear ???

Someone’s working hard for piece of bread
Someone’s driving grand limousine
Yet no one is free from question in his head
What the future in days will bring

What’s the source of Love that we’re giving
What’s the reason of Life that we’re living
And how many rivers do we have to cross
Before we can talk to the Boss

I mean that Time – Free Time
Is really good friend of mine
In him I’m riding and rolling – rising and falling

I mean – Time – Free Time
Is really good friend of mine
In him I’m riding and rolling – rising and falling

Riding and Rolling – Riding and Rolling – Riding and Rolling
