Track Name: World of Sleepers
WORLD OF SLEEPERS

What my eyes can see all around
Is a world of sleepers
We're all sleeping in the beds of ideology
Pillowed be these mazes, can't you see
Listening to lullabies
Soft be these embraces

Temples of shopping malls are being built
Representing unity of abused skin
Laughs of the unfortunate
Visions of billboards
And hope for discount
Cemeteries of reality
Cool be this spirituality
As there are dues to be paid my friends

But me nah judge you
I’n’I a sleeper too
As the sound of the morning bird
Is getting louder
Is getting clearer

Let us sleep a good while longer
Slumber as the days go by
Until we fall down to the ground
To which we have become bound
Ascending up the Jacobs’s ladder
Ascending up the Jacobs’s ladder
Visions come rebirth the clever
While you’re looking through these needles And pins my friend

But me nah judge you,
I’n’I a sleeper too
As the sound of the morning bird
Is getting louder
Is getting clearer

Sirens sing loud thru the night
As we float lost inna the labyrinth of destiny
May we sail our ships into the morning
Leave this dead current
To find hidden lands…
And awake with a new day approaching

See a new day, see a new day approaching

We are coming to the revolution of the
Dissolvement of these subtle stimulations
As we’re choosing real experience
Choosing reality, over symbols
Choosing what your life will be like
Based on your decisions
So go
live long, live on
Live long and prosper

So me nah judge you
I’n’I a sleeper too
But the sound of the morning bird
Is getting louder
Is getting clearer
Track Name: Ape March
APE MARCH

Nature is sending us a message
Creating all this mess and damage
Destroying a poor man’s land
Leaving behind just rock and sand
I´n´I will tell you the truth
The only blame is on me and you
Destroying nature's land
We are all calling for destruction

So we're calling on
Destruction
As we're calling on
Destruction

Nations of the west
Have no respect left
Destroying everything green
Without consciousness they are making a sin
See I know, this be payback time
Nature is spreading sorrow and destruction
The only one who is there to blame
Again they don't give a damn,
Don't give a damn

So we're calling on
Destruction
As we're calling on
Destruction

So we march, to remind, to admit,
That we are guilty
So we march, to see this destruction
It sickens me
So we march, for our children to see
Our mother's Earth, diversity
So we march, for what was given to see that
This way is no way worth living
Track Name: Rasta Tribe
RASTA TRIBE

Long hair, buds are a twisted
Deep sound is coming from the ground
That supports us
In my town the stars becoming voices
On the sky that sees it all

Pon the angel, pon the light
I'n'I, you and me, we too soon become
One vibration, so unique
Who to point, no one denies it

Belong now, fully swinging, I am thinking
That these doors are misleading
That here summoned, must be keeping
This light that keeps me from kneeling
So I'n'I submerge into this feeling
Dive deep trough the space
That flows through me
Me make shelter for all that is calming
Embrace demma knock
When change is coming on

Changes are coming on
Embrace demma knock on your door
Changes are coming on

Crossing borders, bells are ringing
I’m growing
In this heart and this feeling
To the far land, with people singing slow songs
Of past and proceeding

Into waters new, earth is breezing
Fireflies, broken spears, and the truth
Dem a keeping
Introduce the children of the stars
Indigo, Isis, and star seed mind
Can’t keep this in the dark
Can’t keep the good feeling
And the good riddim in the dark

Changes are coming on
Embrace demma knock on your door
Changes are coming on

When I walk down, walk down on this line
Everybody’s looking like they don’t got a dime
What u find is not what you seek
Look for me, the wicked one
When I sit in my crib
I was lost now I am found, I can really see
The voice is laying deep inside of me
Yes I know that I got it
Now I got all the beats from the street Hardcore
Next time be sure I’m coming back here for More

Now come with us
Man sing with us
Now jam with us
You know the cause
All nations wide
The time is right
Open your mind
And reunite

Darkness of dem night
Washed away by the Rasta tribe
Track Name: Time of Plenty
TIME OF PLENTY

Near the fire we sit and conversate
About all the things that keep our minds so interesting
With words of beauty and songs of peace
Tribal drums and sparks that rise up in a shining bliss

No more chains
To hold us in Babylon

So let us go slower, while we travel to I´n´I
Enjoy all passing moments, and memories of good times
Leaving Babylon behind, as we’re floating
Falling sands of time
Reaching other suns

No more chains
To hold us in Babylon
Track Name: Callie Man
CALLIE MAN

Roots man
Natty dreadlocks
Some of demma Rasta
On the arrival

Strong bonds that unite
Are empowered by his presence
Surrender to the sound
Of unique vibes tonight
When the dreaded man dances
So strong that it moves the ground all around
And when the callie man enters
No one can stop this life
When this system gonna fall
Our torches will light up the sky
And when your knowledge will overflow
His crown will shine so divine
So divine once more

Come and let your power ignite
Oh this fire will survive against the ages
Fully speak out your mind
To defend yourself against all these cages


As all the stories combined
They tell the past as well as the future
Witness the progress of human kind
Oh the people can sense something coming on

Culture
Natty dreadlocks
Some of demma Rasta
On the arrival

What are they giving to you
I'n'I ask you what they do
What are they doing for you?

The common sense will be redefined
Fear will be exposed for what it is
So believe in a future that is bright
No matter what a come
No matter what a come,
we shall all dance tonight!
Track Name: Eyes of a Warrior
EYES OF A WARRIOR

Robot hearts have become a disease
Finding life in the bodies of disbelief
Living life got labeled with a price
Since empires learned to trick up your mind
Water stops flowing when a button gets pushed
And stars disappear, with synthetic lights being mass produced

I remember when the tear came out of my eye
When the wicked man attacked from the sky
Tore up the nation from a peaceful light
Showing us the violence of the human kind
Didn't know what to expect or what to do
Dem breeding difference between me and you
Politicians found another wicked way
And Babylon came here to stay

In the eyes of a warrior
Killing his last dreadful enemy
In the eyes of a warrior
Killing, killing, killing it
Inna war
Inna this senseless war of Babylonia

I don't want to tremble, I don't want to be sad
But different things and places echo in my head
Dem faces bring back dark memories
When Jah Jah people, they were fighting
For peace

When fear overpowers
Logic gets restrained
And actions come from another place
When fear is tamed
Logic becomes a norm
And actions are bound to only soul

So cry to move mountains
And smile to build one
Cry on to move, smile on to build

In the eyes of a warrior
Killing his last dreadful enemy
In a war
In this senseless war of Babylonia
Track Name: Nomads of Peace
NOMADS OF PEACE

Truth seeker, soul of hope
Why do you stand alone
Manipulator, thief of freedom
Why do you have a throne
Love, keeper of divine
Why are you overseen
Hate, harbinger of lies
Why are you so strong

Inna the hanging gardens

Masses of people standing in the garden
Searching for a righteous path that leads abroad
The line of control and complex doubt
How much longer will it take
For freedom to make its case
How much longer will it take
For freedom to take its place

In the hanging gardens

Yes I know, yes I know
That the breathing Babylon
Will pull his crown up from the ground
When he tastes
And he will taste
The air of the free
That heals the blindest man to see
And he will see, and he will see
And as one we will awake
And we will partake
With the earth, with the sky
And with the sea
As we awake with our true energy

All awake with the planetary energy
Energy will awake cosmic unity

As the stars align, with our father sun,
Mother earth and sister moon unite
And bring out the universal energy,
And the energy is love, means love

Nomads of peace
Show the world what your eyes have seen
Where your mind and your feet have been
Where your tents took ground to sleep
Dancers of bliss
Show the world how you move the ground beneath
How your chants have removed the thief
And show the world
How you bring the planetary

All awake with the planetary energy
Energy will awake cosmic unity
Track Name: Mother Eternal
MOTHER ETERNAL

Mother eternal
May your world make us humble
And our enemies small
Mother eternal
May your truth soon be found
Within the love that you speak

We are mammals
Carried on our mother´s back
Old enough, but not grown up
We are mammals
Carried on our mother´s back
Depend on her, take her life
Track Name: Brainstorming Alchemist
BRAINSTORMING ALCHEMIST

I am no beast, I am human, love for alien
Living in a gilded cage, we call society
Trapped like an animal,
With no vision for future
Paralyzed and passive

In the wake of the Gatekeeper
That hides the keys to ourselves and smiles
When your wings can't fly
Now climb these gates
Of these monstrous walls and see
Another land is waiting for thee
The man that carries no burden
Upon his shoulders

As I’n’I
I am tree
I am moon
I will not be locked
As I am grief
I am rebirth
I won’t be reduced
As I won’t be seduced

One and the same
Feared and embraced
Brainstorming Alchemist

I spoke love, and there it was
I saw truth, and thus became
As the emperor is dead

The collar of one, lost its grip
The collar of many

From stone to gold
From matter to soul
Change for human, love for alien
And fire for your soul
As this new eye now lets me see
Eternally

Now I am ready to step outside my prison
Ready to meet my jailor
To break the bounds
And free my mind

Gatekeeper, great deceiver of man
I reclaimed the keys from you
To this forgotten land
All things to all man, taken from you
And reclaimed by the honest
And reclaimed by the passionate
And reclaimed by the man that carries no Burdens
Upon his shoulders

This new eye now
Lets me see
This new eye, me,
Eternally
