Track Name: Find A Way
I heard a voice of hope
Sing a song of love
But like the story that my life’s made of
A wind came along and blew the voice away
Now there’s pain where there once was love
Ay ye Ay ye Ay ye
I saw a tree of hope
Bear the fruit of love
But like the story that my life’s made of
A cold came along, the fruit died away
And now there’s pain where there once was love
Ay ye Ay ye Ay ye Ay ye
Ay ye Ay ye Ay ye Ay ye

So if music is the food of love
Then I need some
And if your song can lift me up higher
Then sing me one
And if rhythm is the healing of the nation
Then play that drum

Cause we got to find a way
Yeah ye
Find a way
I’m trying to find a way
Gotta find a way
I want to find a way
Try to find a way
We’ve got to find a way
I’m telling you
Find a way

I saw a sky of hope
Filled with the light of love
But like the story that my life’s made of
Clouds came along, the light went away
Now there’s pain where there once was love
Ay ye...
I held her of hope and was kissed with love
But like the story that my life’s made of
My hope is gone, she’s gone away
Now there’s pain where there once was love
Ay ye...
Ay ye...
Ay ye...
Ay ye...

So if music is the food of love
Then I need some
And if your song can lift me up higher
Then sing me one
And if rhythm is the healing of the nation
Then play that drum

Cause we’ve got to find a way my friends
Find a way
We got to find a way my friends
Find a way
We got to find the way my friends
Find a way
We gonna find the way, come on
Find a way
We got to find a way my friends
Find a way
We got to find a way
Find a way
Track Name: Trickster
Duck and hide
You don’t want to admit it
You just do not seem to get it
Argue and debate
As we move closer to our fate
What good is all that money
If you ain’t got a world to live in?
What good is all that power
If your children are always fearing? (no, no, no, no, no)
Hey, Mr., You know the one you’re really lying to
Is yourself (no, no, no, no, no)
Hey, Trickster, you know the one you’re really fooling now
Is yourself (no, no, no, no, no)
Hey, sister, you know the one you’re really talking bout
Is yourself (no, no, no, no, no)
Hey, brother, you know the one you’re really hurting now
Is yourself (no, no, no, no, no)

Brutal strong arm politics
Like barbarians breaking bones with sticks
Delivering your imperial agenda
Yet what is sent
Shall be sent back to the sender
Didn’t your momma tell you ‘bout the golden rule?
Do unto others as you’d have them do unto you
You’ve been fighting fire with fire
Now some water is required

Hey, Mr., You know the one you’re really lying to
Is yourself (no, no, no, no, no)
Hey, Trickster, you know the one you’re really fooling now
Is yourself (no, no, no, no, no)
Hey, sister, you know the one you’re really talking ‘bout
Is yourself (no, no, no, no, no)
Hey, brother, you know the one you’re really hurting now
Is yourself (no, no, no, no, no)

What you doing with it?
That thing that you got? (What you doing with it? Uh uh)
What you doing with it?
That thing that you got? (What you doing with it? Uh uh)
What you doing with it?
That thing that you got? (What you doing with it? Uh uh)
What you doing with it?
That thing that you got? (What you doing with it? Uh uh)
What you doing with it?
That thing that you got? (What you doing with it? Uh uh)
What you doing with it?
That thing that you got? (What you doing with it? Uh uh)

If breath is that of life
And word’s that of breath
Why do you speak those things
That starve your soul to death?
You’re not a very good pretender
Laying blame when you’re the offender
Laughing at your sister cause she stepped in shit
When there you are, you’re swimming in a pool of it
You’ve been fighting fire with fire
Now some water is required

Hey, Mr., You know the one you’re really lying to
Is yourself (no, no, no, no, no)
Hey, Trickster, you know the one you’re really fooling now
Is yourself (no, no, no, no, no)
Hey, sister, you know the one you’re really talking ‘bout
Is yourself (no, no, no, no, no)
Hey, brother, you know the one you’re really hurting now
Is yourself (no, no, no, no, no)

Hey, Mr., You know the one you’re really lying to
Is yourself (no, no, no, no, no)
What you doing with it?
That thing that you got? (What you doing with it? Uh uh)
Hey, Trickster, you know the one you’re really fooling now
Is yourself (no, no, no, no, no)
What you doing with it?
That thing that you got? (What you doing with it? Uh uh)
Hey, sister, you know the one you’re really talking ‘bout
Is yourself (no, no, no, no, no)
What you doing with it?
That thing that you got? (What you doing with it? Uh uh)
Hey, brother, you know the one you’re really hurting now
Is yourself (no, no, no, no, no)

Hey, Mr.
Track Name: Crow
And so you got yourself a hurricane
Running through your brain
Driving you crazy
off on a campaign
Like a red-eyed, wild stallion
Hell-bent to win
A battle with no winners
A war with no end

On the banks of forgiveness
You clutch to your burden
The waters are begging
But you won’t throw it in

You are a dove, flying like a crow
You know, you know
But you won’t let it go
Up into a sky of hate

Further you go
Leaving a solution
Way down below
You know, you know
But you won’t let it go
You are a dove, flying like a crow

So now you’re using a shield of hope
To dig a grave
You called the past your master
So today you are its slave
Your pride’s cry of victory
Has signaled your defeat
You traded in your throne
For a broken seat

On the banks of forgiveness
The waters beg you to throw it in
But your tears burn your wounds
And you just won’t listen

You are a dove, flying like a crow
You know, you know
But you won’t let it go
Up into a sky of hate

Further you go
Leaving a solution
Way down below
You know, you know
But you won’t let it go
You are a dove, flying like a crow

Forgiveness is for the forgiver
More than the one being forgiven
Do you know, know, know?
Forgiveness is for the forgiver
More than the one being forgiven
Do you know, know, know?
Forgiveness is for the forgiver
More than the one being forgiven
Do you know, know, know?

You are a dove
Flying like a crow
You know, you know
But you won’t let it go
Up into a sky of hate

Further you go
Leaving a solution
Way down below
You know, you know
But you won’t let it go
You are a dove
Flying like a crow

Forgiveness is for the forgiver
More than the one being forgiven
Do you know, know, know?
Forgiveness is for the forgiver
More than the one being forgiven
Do you know, know, know?
Forgiveness is for the forgiver
More than the one being forgiven
Do you know, know, know?
Forgiveness is for the forgiver
More than the one being forgiven
Do you know, know, know?
Track Name: Dreamer
I’m a dreamer of dreams
Though it sometimes seems
Like I’m a fool for doing so
But if you’re a dreamer of dreams
Then you surely know
Some dreams won’t let you go

Yes, I’m a dreamer of dreams
Though it sometimes seems like I’m a fool for doing so
But if you’re a dreamer of dreams
Then you surely know
Some dreams won’t let you go

I grow tired of sitting under this tree that I can’t climb
And whose fruits refuse to fall
I’m tired of begging for the crumbs from this table
Don’t know how long will be able to carry on this way
Feeling so close, yet so far away
So close yet so far away
So close yet so far away
So close yet so far away
So far away
So far away

I’m a dreamer of dreams
Though it sometimes seems
Like I’m a fool for doing so
But if you’re a dreamer of dreams
Then you surely know
Some dreams won’t let you go

I grow tired of this storm
Whose winds threaten
And whose rains refuse to fall
I’m tired of those
Who promise me everything
Then give me nothing at all

I’m tired of begging for the crumbs from this table
I don’t know how long will be able to carry on this way
Feeling so close, yet so far away
So close yet so far away
So close yet so far away
So close yet so far away
So far away
So far away

Time, have you foresaken me?
Or are you just taking me on a very long ride
Your ways seem so unfair
Every time I ask, “when will I get there?”
You always say that I’m
So close yet far away
So close yet far away
So close yet far away
So close, so far away
So close, so far away
So close, so far away
So far away
Track Name: Hold On
I saw you standing in the storm
The rain beat upon you
The winds howled her name
I reach for you, but I reach in vain
You’ve long been drown in a sea of shame
I reach for you, but I reach in vain
You’ve long been blinded by your own self blame
Some say it’s better to end it
Than to keep carrying on
But I say hold on, hold on, hold on

What words can I say?
What song can I play?
To make you understand just how beautiful you really are yeah
The night is darkest before the dawn
Hold on, hold on, hold on
I’ll be your fire, fire, fire to warm you up
Your water, water, water to cool you down
Your fire, fire, fire to warm you up
You water, water, water
I’ll be there for you, I’ll be there for you
I’ll be there for you, I’ll be there for you

I saw you standing in the storm
The rain beat upon you
The winds howled your name
I reach for you but I reach in vain
You’ve long been drowned in a sea of shame
I reach for you but I reach in vain
You’ve long been blinded by your own self shame
Some say it’s better to end it than to keep carrying on
But I say hold on, hold on, hold on
The night is darkest before the dawn
Hold on, hold on, hold on

I’ll be your fire, fire, fire to warm you up
Your water, water, water to cool you down
Your fire, fire, fire to warm you up
You water, water, water
I’ll be there for you, I’ll be there for you
I’ll be there for you, I’ll be there for you

The night is darkest before the dawn
Hold on, hold on, hold on
Just hold on, hold on, hold on
Track Name: Tamba
Unotamba sei (You dance like)
Usina mangwana mukomana (You have no tomorrow, brother)
Unotamba sei (You dance like)
Usina mangwana (You have not tomorrow)

Tamba Wakachenjera (Dance wisely)
Tamba Wakachenjera (Dance wisely)
Tamba Wakachenjera (Dance wisely)


Things can’t remain the same
Why keep on with the old rules when today’s a new game
I’m tired of all this fighting and I’m trying to find
Some people who know how to be kind
So whether you chant a psalm or read the Koran
Here I am, I’m reaching out my hand
So come on now

Don’t let me down
Don’t let me down
Don’t walk away
I’ve got something I wanna say
I’ve been waiting for you
Waiting for you
Don’t let me down
Don’t let me down.

So now who are the children of a lesser God
But those who believe God is lesser.
It’s a choice did you come to curse
Or are you going to be a blesser
So whether you offer the ancestors libations
Or find some peace in meditation
Here I am just another man born from a woman
And I’m reaching out my hand
So come on now

(Repeat Chorus)
Track Name: Waniso
In a land called “Down Under”
The people got together
They were 40,000 strong
And they required of me a song

Just before the new millennium
They came to tell me that the time had come
Up on the stage I told everybody,
“I’m gonna be a daddy”

We sang 2000 in
Then climbed a mountain
To pray give way
To this a brand new day
And as the first light cut the dawn
I heard a voice from clear and strong

“The mountains you have climbed,
Your children will fly from”
The mountains we have climbed
Our children will fly from
See, the mountains we have climbed
Our children will fly from

Rushed to the hospital
Condition critical
Some thought that you would not make it through
They didn’t know what I knew
This day a ray of hope would be born
2:22’s the time they gave me to you
You smiled, my child
So bright and I knew
Those words I heard, oh yeah, they spoke of you

“The mountains we have climbed
Our children will fly from”
See, the mountains we have climbed
Our children will fly from
The mountains we have climbed
Our children will fly from

Waniso, oh Waniso
I keep on climbing up (Waniso, oh waniso...)
Keep on climbing higher
I won’t stop til I reach
Til I reach the top
Keep on getting up
Keep on climbing higher
Keep on going up
I keep on climbing for you
Do every thing I can do
I’ll keep loving for you
Track Name: Mandela
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure
It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us
We ask ourselves, “Who am I to be?”
Brilliant and beautiful
But actually, who are we not to be?
Cause you are a child of god
And your playing small doesn’t served the world, no no
These are the words of Mandela
Mandela, Mandela, Mandela, Mandela, Mandela...

There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking
So that others won’t feel insecure around you
We were born to make manifest
A glory of god that is in us
It’s not just the sum of us
It’s in everyone
Mandela, Mandela, Mandela, Mandela, Mandela....
Track Name: Wrong Way
I said I wanna get to the mountain tops
So I started getting high
But I wasn’t going up
I was trying to get to the city of angels
Riding on the back of a demon

My poison came sweet
In a silver cup
I was getting high
But I wasn’t going up
It’s hard to get to where the angels sing
If you’re using lead to make wings

See, I’ve been going east to get west
And the situation seems to suggest
That those things in my life
That were going right
They were just there to say
I’m going the wrong way
I’ve been going
Been going the wrong way
Yeah yeah yeah, yeah-eah
Going the wrong way
I’ve been going
I’ve been going the wrong way
Yeah, yeah ,yeah yeah-eah
Been going the wrong way

I’ve seen medicine kill
Poison heal
Poor men giving
While rich men steal
Holy men sinning in the dead of the night
Killers and sinners coming in to the light
I’ve seen a flower that killed
A sword that gave life
A song from a child that cut like a knife
So now let the truth be told
All that glitters ain’t gold
And all that’s gold ain’t good
And all that isn’t good isn’t evil
Bad is sometimes good
That’s been understood

The wrong way
I’ve been going
Been going the wrong way
Yeah yeah yeah, yeah-eah
Going the wrong way
I’ve been going
Been going the wrong way
Yeah yeah yeah, oh
Going the wrong way
See, I’ve been going
Been going the wrong way
Yeah..oh...

This is a cave, not a tunnel I’m in
The only light is back where I came in
It’s not too late to turn around
If I get my feet back on the ground
I’ve got a long way to go
But I’m gonna get there, yes I know

Cause I’m singing, let the truth be told
All that glitters ain’t gold
And all that’s gold ain’t good
And all that isn’t good isn’t evil
Bad is sometimes good
That’s been understood

The wrong way
I’ve been going
Been going the wrong way
Yeah yeah yeah, yeah-eah
Going the wrong way
So long I’ve been going, going the wrong way
Yeah yeah yeah-eah
I’ve been going the wrong way yeah yeah...
Somebody help me
I’ve been going the wrong way
Track Name: Runaway
Lost in a maze of mirrors
I’m surrounded by my fears
Like a jester with no jokes left to play
Like a poet with no words left to say
Hey now, I see
I’ve been hiding from the thing that can heal me
Oh yeah got to admit it
My game played me and I didn’t get it
But game over I’m done
It’s from myself that I run

Run away, run away when there’s nobody left to run to
I run away, run away when there’s no where left to run to
Run away, run away when I’m the only one that there is left
(To run to)

Surrender, I surrender
I tried to hide but it would not go away
Surrender, I surrender
I tried runnin’ but I could not get away
Surrender, I surrender
I tried others, but it’s the only way

All of this fighting’s got me down and broken
Hey, truth, you yield but you just never give in

Run away, run away when there’s nobody left to run to
I run away, run away when there’s no where left to run to
Run away, run away when I’m the only one that there is left
(To run to)

This road I thought I was gettin away on
Took me back around to where I started from
And like runnin from the darkness into the sun
I’m blinded by the truth I used to shun
But hey now, I see,
It’s what I ran from that can heal me
Oh yeah, I get it,
My bleeding feet can be healed by what they run from
Oh yeah, I’m done
No longer shall I run

Run away, run away when there’s nobody left to run to
I run away, run away when there’s no where left to run to
Run away, run away when I’m the only one that there is left
(To run to)

Surrender, I surrender
I tried to hide but it would not go away
Surrender, I surrender
I tried runnin’ but I could not get away
Surrender, I surrender
I tried others, but it’s the only way

Run away, run away when there’s nobody left to run to
I run away, run away when there’s no where left to run to
Run away, run away when I’m the only one that there is left
(To run to)

Run away, run away, run away...
Track Name: Lisa Renee
When she tells the wind her story
She knows not that the mountains bow down to be near
When she tells the wind her story
She sees not that the clouds gather to hear

Beauty becomes her as if she was the reason for the word
Yet unto herself her beauty’s a song she’s never heard
All alone she cries in a prison of doubt
She’s begging for a key
But only she can let herself out
Lisa Renee, Lisa Renee
Lisa Renee, Lisa Renee
Lisa Renee
Her dance can put fire to shame
One of her tears is a million nights of rain
Her laugh makes the sun to shine brighter
And her cry the moon to wain
And yet still of thyself is a song from a foreign tongue
From a land where songs are never ever ever sung
Lisa Renee, Lisa Renee
Lisa Renee, Lisa Renee
Lisa Renee

When she tells the wind her story
She knows not that the mountains bow down to be near
When she tells the wind her story
She sees not that the clouds gather to hear

When she tells the wind her story
She knows not that the rivers rush down to be near
When she tells the wind her story
She sees not that the trees they bend down to be near
When she tells the wind her story
She knows not that they mountains bow down to be near
