Track Name: Chasing The Felon Feat Sarah London
Chasing The Felon
You keep on pushing us out
You keep on building high-rise
You keep on taking what we work for day and night
You keep on selling economics
You keep on buying our bliss
You keep on telling us we never worth your dollar
We travel from afar
Looking for a new abode
Since you wrecked our home
We are forced to chase the felon

Do you know?
We are chasing the felon

Now you put a barrier in
Don’t know what you see
Don’t know what you hear
Don’t know what you feel
You steal from our lands
Then you turn in profits
Then you leave us with the bitter taste of loss
Then you teach your children in every facet of life
Then my children are left wandering in hopelessness

Do you know?
We are chasing the felon

A time is coming where the light will shed your darkness
And we will sing praises to the Lord
Track Name: The Corporate Man
On a bright sunny day you wake to the sounds of the beautiful birds tweeting on the porch
You grab shower with the most scented lather hoping to attract the most swagger on the block
You met up with your fellas at the corner of Younge and King to grab a cup of coffee
On your way to work you toss the cup swap it with a magazine full of fashion data
Hopping on the subway you see the same data placed in every corner of your imagination
You leave the magazine on the subway heading to your next destination
On the bus you find the same situation with everyone trying to play the same position
You ask yourself what kind of pressure are we under?

The corporate man lies behind
The corporate man lies behind
The pressure we are under
On a joyous afternoon you yearn to endear your family to a glorious meal
You head out to the nearest grocery store with the kids in the background and your wallet in your right hand
Strolling down the aisle you come across some produce that you always wanted
A healthy choice you must admit you so proud of your decision
You zoom into the price and realize you can’t afford this abomination
Your only choice is to go for what leaves you in dire health
Mass production of the cheapest produce at the cheapest price to harm my family
You ask yourself what kind of pressure are we under?

The corporate man lies behind
The corporate man lies behind
The pressure we are under

These days everyone is coasting in a sea of apathy enjoying the needless sentiments of luxurious living
While the corporation bombard us with endless pursuit of perfection and negligence to our communities
No time for family more time to earn that mighty dollar, you end up wanting more not asking yourself what you need to become a better human being and a better citizen
Oh yes you want that mighty dollar, at what cost? The cost of living in slavery, never asking for your rights, never living in solidarity
Oh what more could you lose?
Never mind me, I guess we are all under pressure.

The corporate man lies behind
The corporate man lies behind
The pressure we are under
Track Name: In A World Feat Lee Reed & Tarek
We don’t need no troubles
We just want our peace,
Everyday we fighting,
Where we go we don’t know,
In their games we are the pawns that never sleep,
When will it end? When will we sleep? When will we see our children?

In a world that never cares for its own
We sick and tired of this treatment
Track Name: Scars Don't Bleed
Scars don’t bleed they only stain our memories
Scars don’t bleed they only stain our memories
They don’t bleed, they don’t bleed, they only stain our memories

Thumping sounds of the soldiers marching though my farmland
Setting fires, blazing through my village with ammunition
Mama is crying while you ask why papa lies in a pool of blood
Down on my knees I ask the Lord why

Scars don’t bleed they only stain our memories
Scars don’t bleed they only stain our memories
They don’t bleed, they don’t bleed, they only stain our memories

Running from my homeland away from these warlords,
Mindless men with power driven motives to wreck havoc
Making deals with the devil, robbing Paul to pay Peter
Leaving my nation in a state of deprivation

Scars don’t bleed they only stain our memories
Scars don’t bleed they only stain our memories
Scars don’t bleed they only stain our memories
Track Name: Wait For Love
Do we have to wait for love?
To stab us in the back
Before we learn the ways of love, peace and harmony

Misery has held the people hostage
You never see them smile when they are working
Them always tell you say money matters,
Where me go sleep? What me go eat?
In a world where everybody’s running
Nobody seems to be thinking and
Nobody seems to be loving

Do we have to wait for love?
To stab us in the back
Before we learn the ways of love, peace and harmony

They will promise you the riches of Ceasar
Wild grapes and wine to drink forever
Away from the people who always suffer
Like a two way street downtown Accra
What matters is love never fails
It’s a blanket of hope sown by the Lord
With strands of faith we are never down

Do we have to wait for love?
To stab us in the back
Before we learn the ways of love, peace and harmony
Track Name: Rock & Roll
We ready to rock and roll
We ready to rock and roll

Mystery walls take our lives like the morning dew during sunrise
You never let go of the past that shattered your heart into broken pieces
Don’t cry over split milk, there is always another day, always another cow
We will face the battle like Ray Lewis coming out of the tunnel
The time is here and now on the grid iron with no inches to give up

We ready to rock and roll
We ready to rock and roll

So I am marching with a renewed sense of optimism
Call me Malcolm I refuse all the little ways of the dark
The times never change; our foes are still at the bay
Ready to pounce on the jaded and misguided so put on your chinstraps
And line up in the trenches because all is lost and won at the heart

We ready to rock and roll
We ready to rock and roll
Track Name: Field of Dreams feat Canadian Winter
Standing tall in the fields of my dreams
I can see all the choices I made
Over the hills I see my fruitful memories
Blooming like lilies on a summer morning
Track Name: Africa
When I say Africa, You say Stand Up, Africa

Bloodshed tears fallen from the leaders of our homeland
They fought for love, a revolution full of uncertainties
Their work undone by the ones who cause us pain and misery
You look across the board and there is less hope for our children
How can the color of one man determine his fate
Locked up brother is their ticket to political office
Ghetto lands is insurance for their safety
You see single parents living on the short end of the living wage

When I say Africa, You say Stand Up, Africa

The times need to change we have had enough
We don’t need them stealing from our future
Lord knows they have stolen from our past and
They continue to keep a strangle hold on our liberties

When I say Africa, You say Stand Up, Africa
