1.
wake up in the morning time to get my daily hope realize the sun still shines, that is my daily hope see her laughin' all by herself dancing in the sun with no one else loving life with no concept of time that is my daily hope My daily hope My daily hope I thank God for food on my plate, this is my daily hope I thank You for your loving Grace, this is my daily hope I keep smiling with my head held high pushing through the struggles and refusing to cry I thank Jah that I am Alive, this is my daily hope My daily hope My daily hope you could hope for a lot of things for cars or for money or big diamond rings waste all your time just polishing but you can't take that with you
2.
Not wasting time Can't spare a dime Trying to shake these dead willow blues The scene from my window Sorrow and sinful What is a man to do? Where do we go? We're gonna find the one Ask all the questions, demand the answers Run till our time has come

Blessed love Blessed is creation Blessed is the most high unto every nation Blessed is every color we must be patient We are just patients in this blessed world we use as a station to channel our love you know the one Im speaking of I mean the one known as the unconditional basic nature of this earth ever since the ancients left us passages to guide us on our maps like spaceships nowadays you get confused by dominions and systems sending mixed signals outward like were preachin through a prism not knowing that this is the worst kind of prison settling on our differences the walking dead were not livin everyone seems to cling to destruction promoting violence steadily on the gun clutching like a modern day virus at the same time we seem to be the modern day pirates stealing from the ones we love and not respecting the highest supreme human being the one that is considered divine its like trickery and we ate the apple smiling but what gets to me is that were all from different climates professing the same thing with different names I pray for silence and peace on these streets not little babies cryin or youths trading blood for money like they got a license to kill its not a movie its real life and its tiring i see the fire blazing so much they pray for hydrants to put the fire out but not until the purifyin is over you'll know by the sound of the king lion when the trumpets sound like sirens titans can't fight em cause were all image and likeness no matter what they thought each and every creed defyin Blessed love Blessed is creation Blessed is the most high unto every nation Blessed is every color we must be patient We are just patients in this blessed world we use as a station but I rose above the madness acquired knowledge of self Blessed love Blessed is creation Blessed is the most high unto every nation Blessed is every color we must be patient We are just patients in this blessed world we use as a station lifes not always worth warring or just fighting its an up hill battle and yes we gotta get to hiking the way I always pray is to the lord through this writing and maybe just one day we'll realize without the sirens stop the violence

27 miles in the devils shoes feel like I got nothing, nothing left to lose lost my smile my friend and I gained the blue came to the cross roads, which way do I choose The souls are worn out You can take them back The hearts been torn out And the sky is black But through the darkness I can see there is a ray of light Shining through us, it is the way of life Free from hate and free from war I'll just try to do my own damn thing that's why I'm in this booth that's why I try to sing and I will try to keep that positive path you can like me or you can turn your back I don't care what other people think I'm gonna try, I'll just try to sing And I'm gonna do it straight from my soul You know, yes yes you know Cause I love, oh yes I love keep your head up high reach for the sky every time I stole the light from your eyes wish I could give it back my hearts been torn out and there aint no way to put it back cause love is everything
5.
if your gonna leave please take your things cause I don't want to be haunted by these memories and when you walk out that door don't you say a thing because the words that are said just might make me bleed i don't want another lover, no that's not me aint got no lovers undercover, just honesty and I'm sick of the lies and the promising and I'm sick of all the hurt that this drama brings I'll keep my head above water so I can breath I'll fight for Freedom Truth and Rights and Equality and when its my time to go and Gods callin Me I'll lay my sword down with honor and take a knee fold my hands and pray for all the friends I leave and hopefully see the pearly gates opening when sadness falls down like rain know that I'll push the sun out of the clouds just to heal your pain There's a thin line between love and hate And sometimes we are blind and cannot relate I gotta pick up all the pieces even though I'm drained Because the way things are going we all need a change do we piece this back together or just walk away how can you point the finger when there's no one to blame do you accept what you've done and realize mistakes can you accept forgiveness or is it to late? did we act out of anger and instigate this final outcome of love and hate can we change the past with future roads we pave or are we stuck in this cycle and headed towards our grave we gotta believe in each other even though its scary I really think that this way is so necessary at one time in my life I thought we would be married we lived so care free and our love was daring now its to the point that I cannot find the reason that were here and to this im blind we need to step back and press rewind but unfortunately I think we're running out of time There's a thin line between love and hate And sometimes we are blind and cannot relate I gotta pick up all the pieces even though I'm drained Because the way things are going we all need a change

And the day has come And the day has come When all of us will be one Shining bright like the sun We will overcome, say we will overcome (Ras Attitude) Seh with the banner and the sword and the shield marching forward to conquer on lifes GREAT battle fields calling all rasta souldiers united, bold & strong come mek we sing to Jah a joyful song victory victory victory victory victory, righteousness rules the nation and now the war has end we strive for conflict to seize mek we gather safely inna di value of peace international love iman a preach and the day will come fi everyone a go seet and then we cut and go round and just trample the beast they can't defeat the a double t-i-t-u-d-e unto the king Iman say glory be yes unto the king rasta say glory be And the day has come And the day has come When all of us will be one Shining bright like the sun We will overcome, say we will overcome (Zack Walters) we got stop signs and speed bumps and road blocks and fallen tree trunks if your engine doesn't work put your feet on the ground yell "yabba dabba doo" and turn that frown upside down i know it's easier said than done with people like piranhas trying to gobble every crumb society's cesspool's always suckin' us down and we gotta keep our heads on the ground and our feet in the clouds and our butts off the seat our arms open wide and our sluts off the street but don't go crazy with the favors (why?) friends'll eat you alive like some hungry alligators definitely need some tlc weed pickin' party in the lbc with knowledge born and 3rd alley we're gone truck along positively And the day has come And the day has come When all of us will be one Shining bright like the sun We will overcome, say we will overcome (KnowledgeBorn07) We have too much frustration too many trials too many tribulations too many in the system have put us in sedation to not feel the effects of the present situation war over anything sounds like perpetration i cannot justify the actions of any nation if the intent is to bomb another nation or conquer tribes, societies or civilizations war behind religion doesn't seem like love if there are people being killed in the name of the above so innocent children, women and men lets overcome all the wicked ways of the world that have made population dumb by overstanding every bit of what they throw at us and bun out all of this negativity and blind em with the rays of the sun shining down positive vibes on each and every one cause each one can teach one and one is what we will become And the day has come And the day has come When all of us will be one Shining bright like the sun We will overcome, say we will overcome One God, one name, one destiny (Dr. King) Something is happening in our world. As you know, if I were standing at the beginning of time, with the possibility of general and panoramic view of the whole human history up to now, and the Almighty said to me, "Martin Luther King, which age would you like to live in?" I would take my mental flight by Egypt through, or rather across the Red Sea, through the wilderness on toward the promised land. And in spite of its magnificence, I wouldn't stop there. I would move on by Greece, and take my mind to Mount Olympus. And I would see Plato, Aristotle, Socrates, Euripides and Aristophanes assembled around the Parthenon as they discussed the great and eternal issues of reality. But I wouldn't stop there. I would go on, even to the great heyday of the Roman Empire. And I would see developments around there, through various emperors and leaders. But I wouldn't stop there. I would even come up to the day of the Renaissance, and get a quick picture of all that the Renaissance did for the cultural and esthetic life of man. But I wouldn't stop there. I would even go by the way that the man for whom I'm named had his habitat. And I would watch Martin Luther as he tacked his ninety-five theses on the door at the church in Wittenberg. But I wouldn't stop there. I would come on up even to 1863, and watch a vacillating president by the name of Abraham Lincoln finally come to the conclusion that he had to sign the Emancipation Proclamation. But I wouldn't stop there. I would even come up to the early thirties, and see a man grappling with the problems of the bankruptcy of his nation. And come with an eloquent cry that we have nothing to fear but fear itself. But I wouldn't stop there. Strangely enough, I would turn to the Almighty, and say, "If you allow me to live just a few years in the second half of the twentieth century, I will be happy." Now that's a strange statement to make, because the world is all messed up. The nation is sick. Trouble is in the land. Confusion all around. That's a strange statement. But I know, somehow, that only when it is dark enough, can you see the stars. And I see God working in this period of the twentieth century in a away that men, in some strange way, are responding something is happening in our world. The masses of people are rising up. And wherever they are assembled today, whether they are in Johannesburg, South Africa; Nairobi, Kenya; Accra, Ghana; New York City; Atlanta, Georgia; Jackson, Mississippi; or Memphis, Tennessee the cry is always the same "We want to be free."

about

(Johnny Cosmic)

KB07 and I have always been huge fans of reggae music and all the off shoot styles. That's what really brought us together and has been the glue bonding all of the different styles we bring to the table. The common thread is always a love for reggae.

Normally, you won't hear it out right in the music. It's always subtle hue. We love so many different sounds and styles that there's not enough time or space to dwell on one sound for too long.

What this dub remix album did was allow us to step back as artists and experience the music more as fans. Getting a chance to bring GooZe, Tommy Dubs, Doctor Echo and Frank (FCP) aboard and really dig into the reggae side of things. This process has been extremely exciting and we hope you enjoy the island twist.
