Church

What I can tell you, when I'm with you I'm walking on air
Watching you sleeping there, yeah
And what can I get through, and for everyone everywhere?
Yeah, answering everything

When you're riding a wave, oh won't you ride that wave to me?
When you're setting yourself, oh can I be seventeen?
When you're riding a wave
When you're riding a wave

'Cause when I'm hurt
Then I'll go to your church

'Cause when I'm hurt
Then I'll go to your church

When you're riding a wave, oh won't you ride that wave to me?
When you're riding a wave

I'll worship you in church, baby, always
I'll worship you in church, all the seven days
I'll praise and praise

Trouble In Town

Trouble in town, because they cut my brother down
Because my sister can't wear her crown
There's trouble, there's trouble in town

Blood on the beach, oh my goodness
There's blood on the beach
Lore of the jungle, or the lore of the street
There's blood on, there's blood on the beach

And I get no shelter, and I get no peace
And I never get released

Trouble in town, because they hung my brother brown
Because the system just keep it down
This trouble, this trouble in town

And I get no shelter, and I get no peace
And I just get more policed
And I get no comfort, and I get no name
Everything is getting strange

Best friends
What's that?
What's his name?
X (Standby, sir)
Alright, is that X your middle name?
Of course, it's on a vehicle ID, right?
You gettin' smart? 'Cause you'll be in a f*cking car with him
F*cking smartass (just tellin' you)
I'm asking you what the X is, is that your middle name?
Of course, what is it?
Don't come back with the "what is it?" f*cking shit
Talk to these f*cking pigs on the street that way
You ain't talking to me that way
I don't talk to nobody in the streets, I don't hang with nobody
Well then don't come to f*cking Philadelphia, stay in Jersey
I have family out here
Everybody thinks they're a f*cking lawyer and they don't know jackshit
Are you supposed to grab me like this?
Grab you up? I'll grab you any way I got to
You're not protecting me while I'm trying, while I'm trying to go to work
Why don't you shut up?

Jikelele, jikelele
Jikelele, jikelele
Jikelele, jikelele
Jikelele, jikelele

BrokEn

Lord, when I'm broken (when I'm broken)
I'm in need (I'm in need)
I feel that ocean (feel that ocean)
Swallowing me (swallowing me)
Head is hanging (head is hanging)
So sorry for me (so sorry for me)
Oh Lord, come shine your light on me (shine your light on me)

On that morning (on that morning)
Scared and blue (scared and blue)
When I'm hungry (when I'm hungry)
Thirsty too (thirsty too)

Send this raindrop (send this raindrop)
Down to the sea (down to the sea)
Oh Lord, come shine your light on me (shine your light on me)

Oh, shine your light (oh, shine your light)
Oh, shine a light (oh, shine your light)
Then I know that in the darkness I'm alright (I'm alright)
See there's no sun rising, but inside I'm free
'Cause the Lord will shine a light for me (shine your light on me)
Oh, the Lord will shine a light on me (shine your light on me)

Sing it now (hmm hmm, hmm hmm, hmm hmm)
Hmm hmm, hmm hmm, hmm hmm
Hmm hmm, hmm hmm, hmm hmm
Hmm hmm, hmm hmm, hmm hmm
Hmm hmm, hmm hmm, hmm hmm
Hmm hmm

Daddy

Daddy, are you out there?
Daddy, won't you come and play?

Daddy, do you not care?
Is there nothing that you want to say

I know
You're hurting too
But I need you, I do

Daddy if you're out there
Daddy all I want to say

You're so far away
You're so far away

That's OK
It's OK
OK

Daddy, are you out there?
Daddy, why'd you run away?
Daddy, are you OK?

Look dad we got the same hair
And Daddy it's my birthday
But all I want to say

Is you're so far away
Oh, you're so far away

That's OK
It's OK
It's OK

You're so far away
Won't you come and won't you stay?
Please stay
Please stay

Won't you come and won't you stay?
One day
Just one day

WOTW / POTP

In a world gone wrong
I shall be strong
Wonder of the world
Power of the people
I'm in my room
My faith is strong
Wonder of the world, power of the people

Our world tonight, get it right
On and on, just as people
For one night, I'mma feel right
Wonder of the world, power of the people

Ooh, ooh

Arabesque

I could be you, you could be me
Two raindrops in the same sea
You could be me, I could be you
Two angles of the same view
And we share the same blood

Comme deux gouttes d'eau
On se ressemble
Comme provenant de la même mère
Comme deux ruisseaux (You could be me)
Qui se rassemblent (I could be you)
Pour faire les grandes rivières
And we share the same blood
Yeah, we share the same blood

And we share the same blood
Yeah, we share the same blood

Music is the weapon, music is the weapon of the future
Music is the weapon, music is the weapon of the future
Music is the weapon, music is the weapon of the future

Same f*cking blood
Same f*cking blood

When I Need A Friend

Holy, holy, dove descend
Soft and slowly
When I'm near the end

Holy, holy, God defend
Shield me, show me
When I need a friend

Slowly, slowly, violence end
Love reign o'er me
When I need a friend

Hombre, mire
Ah, propiamente
Para toda la gente ha sido motivo de burla
Porque todo el mundo piensa que es una cosa imposible
Que es cuestión de locos
El problema es que todo es increíble
Y la gente no lo acepta

Guns

Take it from the playgrounds
And take it from the bums
Take it from the hospitals
And squeeze it from the slums
All the kids make pistols
With their fingers and their thumbs
Advertise a revolution, arm it when it comes
We're cooking up the zeros
We've been doing all the sums
The judgement of this court is
We need more guns
Stop

Everything's gone so crazy
Everything tangled in blue
Everyone's gone f*cking crazy
Maybe I'm crazy too

Melt down all the trumpets
All the trombones and the drums
Who needs education?
Or a thousand spent at sums
Poor is good for business
Cut the forest, they're so dumb
Only save your look-alikes
And f*ck the other ones

It's the opinion of this board that
We need more guns
Stop

Everything's gone so crazy
Everybody but you
Everything's gone f*cking crazy
Maybe I'm crazy too

Orphans

(I want to know when I can go)
(Back and get drunk with my friends?)

Boom boom ka, buba de ka
Boom boom ka, buba de ka
Boom boom ka, buba de ka

Rosaleen of the Damascene
Yes, she had eyes like the moon
Would have been on the silver screen
But for the missile monsoon
She went, "Woo woo, woo woo oo-oo-oo"
Indigo go up to heaven today
Woo woo, woo woo oo-oo-oo
With bombs going boom ba-boom-boom
She say

I want to know when I can go
Back and get drunk with my friends
I want to know when I can go
Back and be young again

Baba would go where the flowers grow
Almond and peach trees in bloom
And he would know just when and what to sow
So golden and opportune
He went, "Woo woo, woo woo oo-oo-oo"
Tulips the colour of honey today
It's true true, woo woo oo-oo-oo
With bombs going boom ba-boom-boom
He say

I want to know when I can go
Back and get drunk with my friends
I want to know when I can go
Back and be young again (yeah)

Woo woo, woo woo oo-oo-oo
Woo woo, woo woo oo-oo-oo

Cherubim seraphim soon
Come sailing us home by the light of the moon

Oh I want to know when I can go
Back and get drunk with my friends
I want to know when I can go
Back and feel home again

Woo woo, woo woo oo-oo-oo
I guess we'll be raised on our own then
Woo woo, woo woo oo-oo-oo
I want to be with you 'til the world ends
I want to be with you 'til the whole world ends

Boom boom ka, buba de ka
Boom boom ka, buba de ka
Boom boom ka, buba de ka
Boom boom ka, buba de ka
Boom

Eko

Joseph rode in on a beam of light
Stray dogs to welcome in fights
Go build the cathedrals
The sight of the pilgrims gone nowhere
And millions of cars
They guise a dream in the distance
From promises he'd leave behind
When there was no harvest
He missed the sky and its circus
And countless, the stars

In Africa
The rivers are perfectly deep and beautifully wide
In Africa
The mothers will sing you to sleep
Say it's alright, child, it's alright

In Africa
We dance in the water and hold each other so tight
In Africa
The mothers will sing you to sleep
And say it's alright, child, it's alright

Joseph rode in on a beam of light
Dreamed of his queen by his side
There will be a beautiful sunset
And you'll be a beautiful bride

Cry Cry Cry

Cry, cry, cry, baby
Cry, cry, cry

In a book about the world
Called the luminous things
There are trees and flowers growing
While trees are bold as ever seen

When you cry, cry, cry, baby
When you cry, cry, cry
When you cry, cry, cry, baby
I'll be by your side

Don't want us to hurt each other
Or cause each other pain
Don't want to feel what they don't know
We're in this together, baby
We're as singing is to rain
So I never, never, ever let you go

When you cry, cry, cry, baby
When you cry, cry, cry
When you cry, cry, cry, baby
I'll be by your side
Ooh, yeah
Ooh, yeah

For your miracles outnumbered by the stars out in the sky

Old Friends

Tony was a friend of mine
We were together all the time
He had my back
Once he really saved my life
Sometimes, I wanna call him
Say hey then stay up 'til morning

When I close my eyes
When I close my eyes
I see you, you
When I close my eyes
When I close my eyes
You come through, you
Time just deepens, sweetens
And mends old friends

We all melt back into the picture
Raindrops back into the water, old friends
Hmm

And there are no ends to old friends
Amen

Trying hard to speak and
Fighting with my weak hand
Driven to distraction
It's all part of the plan
When something is broken
And you try to fix it
Trying to repair it
Any way you can

I dive in at the deep end
You become my best friend
I want to love you but I don't know if I can
I know something is broken
And I'm trying to fix it
Trying to repair it
Any way I can

Ooh

You and me are floating on a tidal wave
Together
You and me are drifting into outer space
And singing
Ooh, ooh

You and me are floating on a tidal wave
Together
You and me are drifting into outer space

You and me are floating on a tidal wave
Together
You and me are drifting into outer space
And singing
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

Champion Of The World

I tried my best to be just like
The other boys in school
I tried my best to get it right
And died at every June
This mountainside is suicide
This dream will never work
Still the sign upon my headstone, write
"A champion of the world"

I tried my best to stay alight
Fly like a firework
I tried my best at taking flight
But my rocket ship reversed
No referee, don't stop the fight
Everyone can see I'm hurt
But I'll stand before conquistadors
'Til I'm champion of the world

(When I sail) and when I sail
I'm sailing west
(Though I might fail) knowing I might fail
But still I am hoping for the best
(In my dreams) and in my dreams
Onto my chest
She'll bring the colors and say
"I wandered the whole wide world
But baby, you're the best"

La, la, la, la, oh
Oh, oh, oh, ay
La, la, la, la

So I'm flying on my bicycle
Heading upwards from the Earth
I am jumping with no parachute
Out into the universe
I am E.T. on my bicycle
With this kid and I want more
I am riding on my rocket ship
And I'm champion of the world

Everyday Life

What in the world are we going to do?
Look at what everybody's going through
What kind of world do you want it to be?
Am I the future or the history?

'Cause everyone hurts
Everyone cries
Everyone tells each other all kinds of lies
Everyone falls
Everybody dreams and doubts
Got to keep dancing when the lights go out

How in the world I am going to see?
You as my brother
Not my enemy?

'Cause everyone hurts
Everyone cries
Everyone sees the color in each other's eyes
Everyone loves
Everybody gets their hearts ripped out
Got to keep dancing when the lights go out
Gonna keep dancing when the lights go out
Hold tight for everyday life
Hold tight for everyday life

At first light
Throw my arms out open wide
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelu-halle-hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelujah
Hallelu-halle-hallelujah
Yes
