Track Name: Love & Education
1. LOVE AND EDUCATION
Love and education are the keys
Children I love you so much
So much I'll teach you everyday
Everyday that we share, I say
Brothers and sisters I love you so much
So much I'll take you away
Away from Babylon vampires, I say
Love and education are the keys - Through communication !
When confusion get's to your head
It's hard to believe
Just take your time and turn the amber red
That's how we Dreadlocks breathe
Love and education are the keys - Through communication ! (ad lib)

Lyrics and Music by Matthias Hélin and Jérémie Dupuy
Track Name: The Future of Mankind
2. THE FUTURE OF MANKIND
From Babylon well we will one day be free
Fi any man death still diminishes me
So on and on we struggle
And rest we'll never find
Fi I&I involved in the future of mankind
Take good care of your neighbour
If you want him to be good to you
It's gonna be long, children
But we'll get there too
So on and on we struggle
And rest we'll never find
Fi I&I involved in the future of mankind
No man is an island, children
Think about tomorrow
And dance away your sorrow
The future of mankind (ad lib)

Lyrics by Matthias Hélin, Music by Jérémie Dupuy and Matthias Hélin
Track Name: Don't Hurry
3. Don't hurry

Don't hurry, if life don't come easy don't worry
No don't hurry, if your misunderstood, never feel sorry
In many way you move there's a bit you remove so no hurry
In many thing you choose there's a spirit you can loose so no hurry
My brothers and sisters the pression's upon us
The time we spend is short and for living there's no reward
Oh! my brothers and sisters let's put our failures behind us
We will breath deeper and try to reconsider
Don't hurry, if life don't come easy don't worry
No don't hurry, if your misunderstood, never feel sorry
In many way you move there's a bit you remove so no hurry
In many thing you choose there's a spirit you can loose so no hurry
Be living in who we are forever together on the same star
Equality for humanity erase poverty
My brothers and sisters the pression's upon us
The time we spend is short and for living there's no reward
In many way you groove there's a bit you remove so no hurry
In many thing you choose there's a spirit you can loose so no hurry
Don't hurry, if life, life, life don't come easy oh no, no don't hurry
Oh no even if your misunderstood
Don't hurry, oh no, don't hurry my brothers my sisters don't hurry ,
Oh oh oh oh don't hurry oh no don't hurry

Track Name: Leave Dem Alone
4. LEAVE DEM ALONE
Leave dem alone inna this home
Someone as been taking one more life
Someone has been hurt one more time
See dem go away, see dem going crazy
Leave us alone inna this home
Someone as been taking one more life
Someone has been hurt one more time
See dem go away, see dem going crazy
We are the fighting nation
We struggle through this vision
We are the same population
So we can't give up this mission
The mission is Love ! (ad lib)

Lyrics by Pascal Paulus and Matthias Hélin, Music by Pascal Paulus
Track Name: Burn
5. BURN
Burn, burn, burn, children you burn
Slowly but certainly
When the time has come, crack a match and run
They say: "nothing wrong!"
But the cloud will come
Creep into your basement
Or else you're gonna get burned
I want you all to get out now
If you don't wanna get burned
Stumbling and trembling
My children, Babylon hurts !
One Love is all that we need
And forever the healing of nature will be collie weed !
Burn, burn, burn, children you burn (ad lib)

Music and Lyrics by Matthias Hélin
Track Name: Mr. Farmer
6. Mr FARMER
When you feel sick and tired of searching around
Your entire neighborhood for a couple of pounds
Of that bad brown kaya brother
That will be smoked in a blink my sister
No time to light on a fire
In a permanentely falling water
When you feel sick and tired of jumping around
Losing all of your temper in dark undergrounds
You walk down the road my brother
That leads to his hut my little sister
You ask him to cut some my brother
Like he'll always do for you little sister
Mr farmer it's time to cut down those collie trees !
The seeds are planted, children !
When you feel sick and tired of jumping around
Losing all of your temper in dark undergrounds
You walk down the road my brother
That leads to his hut, little sister
You ask him to cut some my brother
Like he'll always do for you little sister
Mr farmer it's time to smoke on this collie weed ! (ad lib)

Music and Lyrics by Matthias Hélin
Track Name: No One
7. NO ONE
We can't always agree
Sometimes too blind to see
We have our own story
And we fight for mercy
Friends is all we want to be
Same sun, same sea
We run, we breathe
And sometimes we do worry
We're coming from this road
Where there's no one
We must believe in what we do
We must be strong, we must be true
This life was given to you
We must be strong, we must be true
Beware on what you hold on to
We're still waiting for an answer
So much signs to discover
Waiting for some freedom,
A brotherhood, a solution
We're coming from this road
Where there's no one

Lyrics by Matthias Hélin and Pascal Paulus, Music by Pascal Paulus
Track Name: This World
THIS WORLD
This world is made for us all
Make the day shine until that day
This world is made for us all
Make it work now for now and always
This world is made for us all
'Cause love is two times but in one way
This world is made for us all
If there's a shelter in our hearts we will be safe
This world is made for us all
Let it rest now and leave your trouble behind
This world is made for us all
'Cause every man has a story
Yes, every man has a story
This world is made for us all
But the world is in war
Don't forget your life
Yes, the world is in war
Think for your children
The world is in war

Lyrics by Matthias Hélin and Pascal Paulus, Music by Pascal Paulus
Track Name: Look Trough Time
9. LOOK THROUGH TIME
Look through time
Cause time is yours
Look for your ways
And the ways are long
Don't you run away
Love is on your way
Overcome your fear
Teardrop will disappear
On your own until dawn
You'll feel home
You will know your not alone
Look through time
Cause time is yours
Look for your ways
And the ways are long
Won't you find out why
Tell the reason why
Make your wish come true
Yes, you will make it through
On your own until dawn
You will know your not alone
Look through time
Cause time is yours
Look for your ways
And the ways are long
Don't you run away
Love is on your way
Overcome your fear
Teardrops will disappear
On your own until dawn
You'll feel home
You will know your not alone
Look through time (ad lib)

Lyrics and Music by Pascal Paulus
Track Name: Time Bomb
10. TIME BOMB
Sitting on a time bomb
Nowhere to turn
Sitting on a time bomb
Oh god ! When will we learn ?
Should we believe what they say
Should we retrieve what we pay
Too much ambitions in this time
We all end up on the same frontline
Children wake up, children don't give up !
There's no time to waste !
Children wake up, children don't give up !
We must get together on the right way !
If we go on like this
All the chances we miss
If we don't take care of ourselves,
Nature will decide !
Sitting on a time bomb
Nowhere to turn
Sitting on a time bomb
Oh god ! When will we learn ?
So much we know today
So much lies blown away
But the truth remains the same
We are all part of this game
Children wake up, children don't give up !
There's no time to waste !
Children wake up, children don't give up !
We must get together on the right way !
If we go on like this
All the chances we miss
If we don't take care of ourselves,
Nature will decide !
