Track Name: Soul Attack
SOUL ATTACK

Gone colour blind, black turns to grey
So much things I got to do
But I wake up with the same old blues
This city’s a bind, can’t see my way
Trying to stay positive – trying to believe

Doing the best I can
Prescription in my hand
This is just where I’m at
Under a soul attack

I’ve always been a mess
Still I know that I’m blessed
This is just where I’m at
Under a Soul Attack

The beauty I see just gets me down
20 milligrams should do
But I wake up with the same old blues
It’s all about me and my black cloud
Give me something else to sing – give me anything

Doing the best I can
Prescription in my hand
This is just where I’m at
Under a Soul Attack
I’ve always been a mess
Still I know that I’m blessed
This is just where I’m at
Under a Soul Attack

I tell myself to breathe
I tell my heart “You can believe”
I tell my feet to move
I tell myself “Nothing to prove”
I tell my spirit fight
I tell my eyes “Look to the light”
I tell my soul “No need to crave”
I tell my God my soul to save

Doing the best I can
Prescription in my hand
This is just where I’m at
Under a Soul Attack
Oh it's stormy weather now
Send me a Rainbow down
This is just where I’m at
Under a Soul Attack
Track Name: Funny Thing
FUNNY THING

When he says he’s sorry, he’s been acting cold
There’s a little story and now it’s getting old:
Love hit him right between the ears
Infatuation created fears
Every time he saw her he would lose control
So he ran away just to protect his soul

Yes it’s true – love can make a fool of me and you
But it’s what we do

All this feeling, oh it’s such a funny thing
Darling I’m unsure
But love is a potion that we can’t ignore
Always meddling, my emotions on a string
I never felt like this before

When she’s in a daydream, she’s behaving strange
Searching for the meaning, sometimes it goes this way:
Every time she saw him she was overcome
But he had the look of someone on the run
So she tells him all about the way she feels
Then he disappears like someone’s on his heels

Yes it’s true – love can make a fool of me and you
But it’s what we do

All this feeling, oh it’s such a funny thing
Darling I’m unsure
But love is a potion that we can’t ignore
Always meddling, my emotions on a string
I never felt like this before

This is a common story that’s been played too long
And nobody is right and no one’s wrong
They say women are from Venus and men from Mars
And venetians love to marry and the martians love their cars
But I don’t go for all of that ‘cause I believe
Evolution has allowed us some reprieve
You are you and I am me
So let’s just get together let ourselves be free

All this feeling, oh it’s such a funny thing
Darling I’m unsure
But love is a potion that we can’t ignore
Always meddling, my emotions on a string
I never felt like this before
No I never felt like this before
No I never
Felt
Like
This
Before
Track Name: Rebel
Rebel


Could it be you, could you be true
Could you be the one to change things
Stand up and fight, do what is right
Make a little difference in life
Believe in yourself and you know
You can make a revolution
To the next level, you can be a rebel

To the next level, you can be a Rebel

Say it out loud, tall and proud
Make them watch you are
Know your own mind then you’ll find
You make a big difference
Know yourself and you’ll see
You can be a revolutionary
To the next level, you can be a rebel

To the next level, you can be a Rebel

Don’t let nobody try and fool you
Don’t let nobody try school you
Don’t let nobody tell you how to be
Don’t let nobody tell you how to see
Don’t let nobody try and break you
Don’t let nobody be a fake to you
Don’t let nobody control you
You gotta be who you are

(free Like Jah)

To the next level, you can be a Rebel
Track Name: Die Laughing
Die Laughing

When I reach the end of time
see the things of me and mine
I’ll know my life was just a fake
it’s more than my soul can take
And I’ll feel nothing
I feel nothing

I sit and wait under the stars
wonder where the hell you are
You and me, we’re just too far gone
my message is a home made bargain
Love someone
You’ve got to love someone

Winter comes and my freedom goes
Where it goes nobody knows
I’m sick of wearing these old clothes
they don’t stop the wind that blows
And there’s a wind blowing
A wind blowing

I said I don’t wanna be like those I see
Who wait for things that come for free
No I don’t wanna be like those I see
Who wait for things that come for free

All I hope for is the change
Of seasons as I leave this stage
No time to rearrange
Got to take things as they come my way
And die laughing
I’m gonna die laughing
Die laughing
I’ll die laughing

I am only what I am
And no one else will give a damn
When I’m down there on my knees
Looking for a God to please
Only Love matters
Only Love matters

When my life’s in tatters
Only Love matters
Only Love matters
Only Love matters
Track Name: Soldieress
SOLDIERESS

Sisters! Follow your heart!

I'm a Soldieress, and I share my blood with you
I'm a Soldieress, and I know you feel it too

Now i might wear a dress, flash my eyelashes
But I know there's work to do
Yes a man's impressed when he sees me coming
But I know that I'm more than they view

Let me tell you fellow sisters
That the war ain't over yet
And while these high heels give us blisters
May we never forget

That a Soldieress keeps on loving
But she knows when enough is enough
Never taking less than she knows she's work

And we don't say yes when we mean no
We make that clear from the start
Noone's got to guess because we keep it simple
We always follow our heart

'Cause we a Soldieress and we never give up fighting
Just to keep our spirits alive
All around is stress
In a word where the fittest survive

Yes we laugh and we cry and we bleed
And we try and we fail and succeed

Whether you carry a baby
Or you love to cook for your man
Whether you walk like a lady
Or you're making your very own stand
Whether your hair is in ribbons
Or whether it's under your arms
Every last one is a winner
As long as you follow your heart

Soldieress! Keep on fighting!
Soldieress! Follow your heart!
Soldieress! Keep on loving!
Soldieress!
Bless.
Track Name: In My Blood
In My Blood

It’s always been my way
to wait for yesterday
Silence has been my game
But now I’m ready to change

I always understood
that holding back was good
But there’s a fire inside
so that I just can’t hide

‘Cause it’s in my blood
Like it always was
In my blood, all along

I’ve got to do my thing
Throw my head back and sing
Stand on a mountain top
Shout it out til I drop

It’s in my blood
Like it always was
In my blood all along

Love is in my blood, life is in my blood
and the joy flowing
It’s the love of God
Feel it in my blood
Music flowing

I love you just the same
But I’ve got to go my way
Come on let down your hair
Come with me if you dare

It’s in your blood
Like it always was
In your blood
All along

It’s a blood thing
'Cause the blood that I carry is pumping
Through the veins to my heart to my very soul
And it flows and it flows
It’s a love thing
And the love that I carry is flowing
From my heart to connect with everything
And it flows and it flows

In my blood
Track Name: Mr Damascus
Mr Damascus

He came from a far away place
He shone his light on my face
I thought that I had gone blind
But it was all in my mind

Well I was sitting where he left me
And I was trying to see where I went wrong
Because he shone a light into my soul
and then he said
Let me sing you a different song
He said

See the way the flowers grow
They don't tell of what they don't know
Birds of the air are so free
They never lie
They know how to be so

Walk in Truth and walk in Light,
If you open your eyes I'm gonna give you sight

I thought about this, I tried to resist
But I came to the conclusion that he's right
'Cause all through time and in my mind
I see us running around blind in the night
And we play our games 'cause we've got our aims
And we don't mind shooting down the truth in flames

But Love is like a thunder crash
Love is like a burning flash
Love makes us see a different way

Walk in Truth, walk in Light
You know the wrong from right
Open eyes will give you sight
Even in the darkest night

Only people wear faces
Try to cover their traces
Listen to the birds sing
They don't worry about a thing
They just fly

So I guess Mr Damascus is on his way
But I still got that Light shining in my soul today
And even though sometimes I feel the pain
When I look around somehow my world is brighter

Because I see the way the flowers grow
They don't tell of what they don't know
Birds of the air are so free
They never lie
They know how to be so

Walk in Truth and walk in Light,
If you open your eyes I'm gonna give you sight
Walk in Truth and walk in Light,
If you open your eyes I'm gonna give you sight

I'm gonna give you sight
I'm gonna give you sight
I'm gonna give you sight
