Beauty Is In Suffering

She doesn’t know the meaning of broke

Its why she doesn’t laugh at my jokes

Likes to relate to the average folk

But sometimes our lives are just blowing smoke

 

Poverty’s become a normality

From the third world observatory

Leave your dishes for the maid to clean

She’ll keep your scraps and feed the lean

                    

Beauty is in suffering

Ugly is having everything

                    

The first world plays a post war blues

Continuing on from WWII

Open your eyes we’ve got a job to do

But first realize who

Are the haves and have nots

The haves and have nots

 

Its true its not what you’re given

It’s what you got

But some of us were handed a gun

With a better shot

 

Beauty is in suffering

Ugly is having everything

 

Can’t Force A Fire

Last night it rained so hard

It put out the fire in my heart (2x)

Seems like the clouds would never part

Only darkness all around

And oh! how the wind it blew

The fruit right out the trees

Thunder so loud it brings you to your knees

 

So we gather round

For to try to get a spark

Yeah we gathered round

For to try to get a spark

But you can’t force a fire when the wood is wet

You have to wait now

No you can’t force a fire when the wood is wet

You have to wait

 

Ohhh ohhh so long...  it seems like forever

 

So when it came time to sleep

One of us stood guard

Flesh so tired and weak

But spirit restless    

To wait out the night is the only way to survive

Waiting out the night

                    

Seems like ages till the morn...

Seems like ages till the morning comes

But I’ll be your shelter if you be

My pillar

Be

Your shelter and we’ll make it through this weather

 

So I went to see the gypsy

She said your soul looks filthy

I asked if I can start anew

She said it starts with you (boy it starts with you)

And took me to the river’s edge

Told me to look down

Asked me what it was I saw

And my face is all I found

 

Time will show you if you want it to

Time will prove you if you want it to

 

But you can’t force a fire when the wood is wet

You have to wait now

No you can’t force a fire when the wood is wet

You have to wait

                

Seems like ages till the morn...

Seems like ages till the morning comes

But I’ll be

Your shelter if you be

My pillar

Be

Your shelter and we’ll make it through this weather

 

Flowerbed

Flowerbed

In my head

Sings me dreams

I’ve seen and been

            

His mind is mute

Deaf to the self

Cause when he left

He never came back

                    

See no difference

In the eye of the other

No such thing as culture

Only place and mother

                    

And She’s late to class

No need of lessons

Self taught not to care

Selective listening in her breast

                                

I’ll do anything for you

Only if you love me too

                    

Back to Bodhi

To cultivate love

Find your god

And rise above

But don’t ask me

Why we’re here

Cause all I know

Is I’m not there

 

I’ll do anything for you

Only if you love me too

                

Flowerbed

In my head

Sings me dreams

I’ve seen and been

I’ve seen and been

But I’m yet to go Again

 

Grown Child (ft Sam Trump)

Where have all the days gone?

All that remains is this reflection

And memories that fade

From silver to grey

 

Times in doubt

Dues paid when down and out

 

We can’t hold on to what has passed

When its gone its gone so make it last

My little grown child

 

Sing me an old one

We were born to sing these love songs

But this understanding never came

Until peace reigned supreme

 

Where have all my friends gone?

Their seed I sown across the land

Can’t relate this joy to pain

So we push on all the same

 

Times in doubt

Can not find what’s left behind so let go of yesterday

 

We can’t hold on to what has passed

When its gone its gone so make it last

My little grown child

 

If Only  (part 1)

I told you that I love you

It was the last thing that I said

And I’m always thinking of you

But I’m gone now from your head

You’ve got a new plan

With another man

And Now I’m all alone

With my head in my hands

Whats a boy to do?

Sitting here going crazy - thinking about you

You got the key to my heart

And now it’s locked and I’m not free

Oh Oh

Now it’s locked and I’m not free

 

Jack Gautama

Meditate

It’s not too late

Just give your mind the time

And she’ll relate

Cause we is one

Just open up and breathe

 

Meditate

It’s not too late

Just give your mind the time

No matter who you are

Its inside

All you gotta do is let it ride

 

Buddha believes in me (x4)

 

When he was young

He had his fun

But something wasn’t right

Tried to find peace of mind

But nothing seemed to work

Until one day

he sat and down beneath the bo tree

There is stayed day and night

Until he saw the light

 

Buddha believes in me

 

Kiss The Earth

Rain come falling down on me and your soul

Skies open eyes crying for all heaven on earth

Blue meets green and this life is full

 

Cause now is the time to kiss the earth

No goodbyes no soft eyes

 

In this garden once called his eden

We are sorry for all our imperfections

So we make love in the name of meaning well

 

Well no ain't the time to waste your mind

No goodbyes no soft eyes

 

But I can't dream this song from my head

Can't hold back all the emotions from the skies turning red

Will the tears of the moon quench the fires of the earth?

Will the tears of our souls grant forgiveness at the break of dawn?

So we make love

 

Under skies crying for all the world dying

Accompanied by a chorus of angels weeping

We make love in the name of meaning well

 

Cause now is the time to kiss the earth

No goodbyes no soft eyes

 

But I can't dream this song from my head

Can't hold back all the emotions from the skies turning red

Will the tears of the moon quench the fires of the earth?

Will the tears of our souls grant forgiveness at the break of dawn?

 

Lament

Earth is no more

She’s long gone

Plagued by man

So we fled

 

Now your with the stars

But at the sacrifice of Heaven

 

No Knowing

What would life be without uncertainty?

There wouldn’t be

No you or me

There’s no adventure in knowing everything

So let your mind roam free

With the possibilities

 

Dreams don’t die

They lay dormant

Until you wake up and cease the moment

Listen and you’ll hear

Your inner voice call

Singing never let your true love fall

 

They say a man needs a plan to thrive

Yes, but I say all work and no dream means you're not alive

You don’t need eyes to see between the lines

True love lasts a lifetime

 

Chorus:

But there gunna try to

Tie you up and put you down

Tell you not to come around

But you and I know

 

So when they ask me where I’m going to

I step to you

In whom I believe

What’s a man supposed to do?

But learn how to sing

 

Chorus

 

Sometimes you feel so alone

But Baby I’m right here at home

 

Okae Bae

I’ve been thinking alone a lot lately

And since i’ve been home my perception has changed

Don’t really know what to say

But hey… Baby it’s okay

 

Things could be worse… I still got this guitar

We didn’t get to rehearse, we put our faith in the stars

And now you're so far away

But hey… Baby it’s okay

 

Baby it’s okay

 

You’re not my baby anymore - (you’re not my baby anymore)

I understand he’s your man and you shut the door - (you’re not my baby anymore)

It doesn’t matter that I ended up on the floor - (I’m not your baby anymore)

I lick my wounds and I learn to go about my day

 

Baby it’s okay

 

You’d be glad to know I’m doing fine - (he’s not fine, no he’s no fine)

I say that to ease your precious mind - (ease your mind, oh ease your mind)

They say all things do heal in time

 

Maybe she’ll take me back!?

…. Nah

 

You’re not my baby anymore

I understand he’s your man and you shut the door

It’d doesn’t matter if I ended up on the floor

I like my wounds and I learn to go about my day

 

On Your Own

You thought you’d had

All you’d need

But when she left

You couldn’t leave

 

Now without her

By your side

You can’t hide

From yourself

 

Even with fame or wealth

You can’t sing your way out of hell

 

So go seek again what you sought

Way back when - many moons ago

Don’t give a second thought

Of how it goes, you never know - you never know

 

The soul can’t be bought

Yeah the truth can’t be taught

Cause in your bones

It’s known

 

Your on your own

You and you alone

An open road

Now go

 

Dreams and waking life elide

Which way to go?

You can’t decide

You stumble

But you’re still standing

 

The city yeah she calls your name

But the country air keeps you sane

You try to find a reason

But there’s no explaining

 

Even when you feel that you won’t

it’s not a matter of do or don’t

There’s no choice

But to forge ahead

 

On your your own

You and you alone

The open road

Now go

 

You’ve all you need

You got me

 

One By One

It’s time to go to work

And double down

There’s a whole lot of people

Hurting in this town

 

Brother they need you

And you need them

Come on my neighbors

Together we can mend

 

This world

One by one

Cause its the only way it’s gonna get done

 

Hungry in the streets

Homeless at our feet

Remember once was said

You are your brothers keeper

 

And now we are learning to see

That if we humble ourselves

Together we can mend

 

This world

One by one

Cause its the only way its gunna get done

 

But sometimes it seems so helpless

With all this trouble around us

You've got to ask yourself what it means

The beauty and love of dreams

 

Of this world

All or none

This world

One by one

Cause it’s the only way its going to get done

 

Find your leader

In the community

You don't like what what i'm saying?

Man it doesn't have to be me

 

Maybe it’s you!

That we should listen to

And together our voices can sing to mend

 

This world

One by one

mend this world

All or none

 

Cause its the only way it’s gonna get

Only way it’s gonna get

Only way it’s gonna get done

 

We Done Thru

She don’t want me anymore

She don’t need me anymore

I tried to tell her that I dig

But she don’t love me anymore

Guess I’ll grab my things and go

Yea she don’t love me anymore no

 

I went out to see the show

Another cat came thru my door

Woman was cooking cornbread

Table set for that other man

She don’t want me anymore

Gonna grab my axe and take the road

 

We don’t thru

Yea I’m gone

She ain’t true

Baby so long

 

Gone out to find another

I’m going downtown to find a lover

I feel so bad I need some kush

Get so high I’m feeling good

She don’t want me anymore

Gunna lay her sister on the floor

 

We don’t thru

Yea I’m gone

She ain’t true

Baby so long

 

When You Wake Up Tomorrow

When you wake up tomorrow

Looking back on today

What will you say?

Did it go your way?

 

Where you sleeping or awake?

Was it real or was it fake?

 

My sweet angel

Inspiration abound

Tell me, tell me lord

Where its to be found

 

Don’t wait don’t hesitate

No one can do it for you (for you)

I wish I could and you know I would

But lord it’s too late

 

When you wake up in the morning

Is she by your side?

Is she your joy, your only pride

The reason you wake up

Come on get up now

Let her know, Let her know

We’ve got to let our love show

And if you don’t then boy let her go

 

Ohh!
