Track Name: Dredda Lion
DREDDA LION

Dredda Lion roars upon the ocean,
greets the sky and runs on the mother's ground.
Cleans his body with a tongue, pure,
cries in the forest that is no more…
See the forest is gone….
Long ago burned down…
Sharpens his claws, to scare away the demons of the dawn,
cleanses his soul, while he sleeps under the waterfall.
He counts the stars, although he knows them all,
dreams of holy Jah…
Tonight he has been hearing his voice,
tonight he's been counting the stars all over!

Mighty, mighty Dredda…
His kingdom of Mount Zion…
He rules freely…
Yes he be the majesty!

Dredda Lion hunts when the dreamers sleep.
Dredda Lion praised for his majesty.
The truth of Zion is his secret to keep,
Dredda Lion, guide me through and teach.
But you see, what's going on in this bloody Babylon,
full of greed and global corruption…
Dem want to chain the lion up,
Dem be chaining the lion up!
That's why we're on the mission,
to release the mighty Dread, as we pray on…

Dredda Lion, you have been cursed.
By the filthy words of Babylon.
Let Jah people heal your hurt.
So you can once again run on Zion’s earth!

Mighty Dread rules freely….
Mighty Dredda Lion….
The kingdom of Mount Zion is our freedom!
Track Name: Sacred Knowledge
SACRED KNOWLEDGE

Sacred knowledge is resting in my head,
what I don't know, what I will know.
Where will I go, the obstacles all lay ahead.
Overpower, Nurture, Inspire,
I can see it clear, I can see Zion.
Intimidation, Pride, a Liar,
A liar you say but I feel this in a different way.

I shall conquer now, I shall conquer now.
You shall conquer now, you shall conquer now.
We shall all conquer we shall all conquer.
We will live through the fire, we will live through the fire,
We will live on trough all,
And then we’re gonna burn down the Wicked Man.

Here comes the big raw sound.
Here comes the sound supplier.
Here comes the mushroom fairy.
Here comes the power, the power I say!
Natural disabler of ego,
No separation, no good or evil.
Come here to walk on this Sacred Land,
I and I show respect, me, I do not pretend!

Me don't search for saviors, me search for the truth.
Me not foolish, me here to praise the youth.
I am a student, I learn from the tale of life,
perceive what I feel and then turn it to sound.
We don't need words to speak out our mind,
each day explore, discover new ground.
Cycles and eras hold more than they seem,
what you see in your sleep is more than just a dream.

The destruction of Babylon was well designed,
Confusion and pride didn't take half of their price.
You are more important than you really know,
each revolution started with a single thought.
Track Name: Voice of Jah
VOICE OF JAH

My crown has not been touched by evil men,
My eyes can see what Babylon hid from them.
I am the overwhelming expression of the lion’s heart,
I am Zion and I am Eden’s path.
Hear me, the emperor of all vibration.
Say my name when you stomp down upon desire.
Upon desire, upon desire,
So you will know I am Jah…

Dem wicked statues that represent the mortal man,
Dem want to harvest and steal what I became.
Dem not understand, what I am is free,
Dem can't comprehend my luminosity.
Thou illuminate yourself to a higher sphere,
as I shall nurture you like a growing seed.
What I wish is for Zion to be full of trees,
want my children to overcome their fears.

I am Jah the holy Selassie, for I know…
You be the voice of Jah the holy Selassie is upon you.
We are all Jah the holy Selassie, for I know…
You be the voice of Jah the holy Selassie is upon you.

You can call me Krishna, Babaji, or the Holy star,
Yahweh, Eros or Amon Ra.
Don't be miss-leaded by the many names I carry son,
we are all one, we are the blazing sun.
Both the light and dark you need to overcome,
to remember true self and flow thru all.
To remember true self and flow thru all,
You will know Jah Jah Man is upon you.
Track Name: Overpowa
OVERPOWER

Babylon be a fraud, to never be excused,
burning eyes and lies mass produced.
In a culture that learned how to stay behind,
in a world that won't encourage paradise.
And in this wicked state,
we fight to be awake,
and in this wicked state
Changing all of us, we shall rise above,
and we shall see what the future is bringing here for me.
And you and me,
control what we want to be,
and we shall see
What's in store for us, living prosperous, living prosperous,
yes we can see a new age approaching!

Go away with your mask of capitalism,
go away with the mask of liberty!
Justice you will never see,
this be the mask of democracy!

Babylon be a wall, to never be rebuilt,
heavy feet, eager pride that can't resist,
in a bwai that has been washed by the system.
We must listen, as our voices defeat them…
And in these wicked times,
we fight to free the mind,
and in this wicked state…
We must rise above, come lets float beyond, lets float beyond,
and let us see how we regain our dignity!
So you and me,
control where we want to be,
and we shall see
What’s in store for us, living prosperous, living prosperous,
yes we can see a new age approaching!
Track Name: Puppet Master
PUPPET MASTER

No truth can be heard from the mouth of the Ruling Clown,
can hear the tight strings that make these puppets bound,
to the master that hides behind the curtain's shade,
a play of illusions scares away reality.

Dem dread the simple mind,
and complicate the goal.
Divide the unity,
so there is more to be sold.
Invents a new fear,
lies down on cut down trees,
then he disappears into the abyss.

Where no one dares follow,
where greed grabs you until you are swallowed.
So there the Puppet Master spreading his strings,
guiding, guiding the world to fatality…
We do not need this!

We are going to cut down the strings,
we will never be misleaded by these hypocrites…

As we have the power of Buddha.
As we have the spears of Judah.
As we have the light of Jesus Christ.
Yes we have the power of Jah!
Track Name: Migrate to Zion
MIGRATE TO ZION

My people slowly have enough now.
Dem are ready to migrate.
Go to a better place,
to a brighter space,
to a vital and brighter future…

Dem talk about a revolution in these days,
I think more about communication ways.
If you think people are gonna lose control,
that I don't know, but I'm sure,

That wherever Peace will go,
Jah Jah Man we truly follow you,
That wherever peace will go,
Jah Jah Man we truly follow…
We migrate to Zion with the Conquering Lion!

Dem in your house, in your streets, in your minds.
From TV you can't see things completely.
Dem lie to you as dem lie to me…
Stealing our dreams at these times there is nothing as it…

At these times there is nothing as it seems,
Jah Jah Man they are stealing our dreams.
At these times there is nothing as it seems,
Jah Jah Man they are stealing our dreams but know,
wherever peace will go,
Jah Jah Man we truly follow you!
We migrate to Zion with the Conquering Lion!
Track Name: Bud Burn
BUD BURN

Because I like dem sunshine days!
Open my eyes and clear these ways.
When we cruise on these roads,
to where our callyweed grows.
Clouds are shaping, minds are awakening,
it's a good day that we went away,
on this ordinary day…
What you say, the feeling is ok.

Time to roll a spliff? Yes! bless!

Problem not in ganja, no, no, problem in the politician on the mission,
Problem not in ganja, no, no, problem is in the global corruption,
Problem is not in ganja, no, no, problem is in the wicked man oppressors,
But do not you worry, do not you worry, enjoy this story!

Take your stash and make a filter, prepare the rizla roll it up between your fingers.
Man, here you have a little spliff, pass it on and wait for the relief.
Give me rizla, give me ganja,
burn Jah fire and take me higher.
Give me rizla give me ganja,
burn Jah fire and take it to another level…

Problem not in ganja, problem in the politician on the mission,
Problem not in ganja, problem in the global corruption,
Problem not in ganja, problem in the wicked man oppressors,
Problem not in ganja problem in the reason, problem is the rising of Babylon!

Take the stash, no problem in cash!

Take the stash and make a filter, prepare the rizla, roll it up between your fingers.
Here you have a little spliff, pass it on and wait for the relief.
Give me rizla, give me ganja,
burn Jah fire and take me higher.
Problem not in ganja problem in the reason, problem in the rising of Babylon!
Track Name: System's Eye feat. Joe Joe O'Reily & Lucky eL
SYSTEM'S EYE

Inna this time of crisis,
Strong Soul is what you need,
Determination is what you need…
You have to be a warrior inside,
spreading love, equal rights for all.
Righteous man shall never fall,
yes we gonna burn down the wicked man…

Born inna Babylon,
but still I'n'I be raised by Jah.
Not afraid to look in the eyes of a stranger,
not afraid to look directly inna dem eyes.
The walls of the empire are long gone,
walking in chains made me strong,
Enough to break them off,
Enough to burn them off,
Enough to smash them down!

Born under the radar,
but still has Jah found us.
Born under the system's eye,
still Jah Jah man released me, released me!

And so you have to be bolder,
and so you have to be stronger,
and so you have to live wiser,
so you're gonna live on and prosper!

Skin to stone, redemption in song,
Showing me truths I sensed all along.
From the first holy tear to the last breath,
You guide me through the vast valleys of death.
You hold my hand when the wicked one is grabbing for me,
expose the ancient's sacred glory,
now I can be a wiser man,
Yes, I'm gonna live on and prosper!

Roots inna peace stars inna eyes,
I'n'I be true to love in my life.
No gambler or businessman can make me compromise…
Forever I'll flow with the rhytm , no matter what dem say,
No matter what dem try,
No matter what dem say or try,
Dem can't make me compromise!
Track Name: Wicked City
WICKED CITY

The curse of the wicked city did not end,
when they leveled it with the ground, oh well.
Its monsters still reside deep in ourselves,
and resurface when control is lost by men.
Waiting in slumber till they reappear,
consuming the knowledge we try to learn here.
Now we cry together and laugh alone,
as this wicked king has to be dethroned.

As Babylon city expands with concrete roads,
the wicked city wants to wash away our roots.
But we won't get lost, no, no…
We will not bow down so low…
Won't let you rule this pure world no more.
The forbidden walls are closing in,
but many search for the doors to escape from it!

No priest or saint was able to dispose of them,
no holy water, no praying to the bearded man.
So I call upon you, the holy Rastafarian guide,
Give me the power to overpower with strength divine.
Track Name: Natural
NATURAL

See and realize this…
How They want to control,
the fruits of nature not even born,
They decide what's good for Them
on the basis of profit.
And They declare,
the world beware, beware…
Mr. Monsanto I understand your plan,
I know you want to steal all the seeds from our Mother Nature…

I cherish all of the seeds,
that Mother Nature provides it,
but they say it's forbidden,
I don't care I have my own Garden of Eden at home.

So Mr. Politician…
Mr. Chemistry…
Mr. Pharmacist…
I tell you this…

Natural herbs in my garden, all natural all natural.
Natural there be herbs all, all natural all natural.
Herbs I grow in my backyard all natural all natural.
Natural herbs in my garden, all natural all natural.

Mr. Capitalist I do not believe in your drugs,
I know your disguises I know all your plans,
I know your secret basis for all your medicine,
You abducted the plant this be a really big sin!
They say if you'll use it, your mind will go slow,
it’s not good for your health and you will fall down low.
But I don't care what you say, you can't mislead me,
I still grow my herbs and my own callie!
