Track Name: Chillin' in the Clouds
I wake up
When you fall asleep
I see the world
While you count sheep
Oh baby, it’s nomadic love.

It’s raining by me,
And you’re in a drought
You’re keeping it in
But I’m letting it out
Oh baby, it’s nomadic love now.

Losing things is just a part of life,
So I guess I’ll be all right
When he’s gone.

I could sing you a beautiful song,
But I’m a child for just so long
I’ve got to move on now.

Cuz’ my head is chillin’ in the clouds
And I don’t plan on ever coming down
I’ve been serious, for much too long
And if you can’t laugh with me
Oh baby, don’t you bother come along

I’ll be your friend,
Not your disguise.
I’ll play along
Laugh at your lies
Oh baby, it’s nomadic love

Happy birthdays
Stuck on my wall
I’ll stare at my phone
Reject all your calls
Oh baby, it’s nomadic love

I don’t wanna cry at night
I shed my tears in the light
Where they’re free for all

I’ll try to carry you along
‘Cuz you’re my favourite song
To where we’re free from home now

My head is chillin’ in the clouds
And I don’t plan on ever coming down
I’ve been serious, for much too long
And if you can’t laugh with me
Oh baby, don’t you bother come along

My head is chillin’ in the clouds
And I don’t plan on ever coming down
I’ve been serious, for much too long
And if you can’t laugh with me
Oh baby, don’t you bother come along

Track Name: Cuppa Tea
My little angel
My reflection on a blank TV
My little angel
Made in god’s image
I’m sorry if the world just gets me down
And as much as I try to
I just can’t escape this frown.
Oh, but you’re the one who gets me
Shares the same energy
It’s funny how love works.
No other place I could be
Far but you’re here with me,
They say love should hurt

But you’re like a
Warm cuppa tea on a Sunday morning
A sleep in while the rain is falling
Like a good book that you can’t put down
I put you in my backpack and carry you around
Like a old pair of faded jeans
I fell in love with your touch on my skin
I can’t help it,
If your love sets me free.

You give me something,
Oh mystical, spiritual, a miracle, original, and it’s unconditional.
Something,
Enlighten me, my frequency, you easily, come peacefully and take every piece of me.
I don’t fall in love,
I stand in it.
And thank god above,
For every minute.

You’re like a
Warm cuppa tea on a Sunday morning
A sleep in while the rain is falling
Like a good book that you can’t put down
I put you in my backpack and carry you around
Like a old pair of faded jeans
I fell in love with your touch on my skin
I can’t help it,
If your love sets me free.

I had a
Warm cuppa tea on a Sunday morning
After sleeping in while the rain was falling
Read a good book I couldn’t put down
I put you in my backpack and carry you around
Like a old pair of faded jeans
I fell in love with your touch on my skin
I can’t help it,
If your love set me free.

Track Name: Strong for Too Long
Just when I was tryna fix thing
I seem to burst at the seams
And I swear that it’s not what it seems
I just lose myself constantly.
It’s the fall of the great
The one who always seemed so great
She’d never slip and make a mistake
She was so sure she knew her fate

I’ve been
Strong for too long
And now Mama said that she want me gone
I’m too strong
Strong for too long
And now Mama said she want me out the home
I’m too strong

It’s my fault I messed up,
I put you through hell I’m not enough
Singing, I’m the failure
But you didn’t need me to tell you
The dumb, the reckless, the bad
The one you wish you’d never even had
And I know I’m always mad at dad
But does it make it okay for me to be sad?

I’ve been
Strong for too long
And now Mama said that she want me gone
I’m too strong
Strong for too long
And now Mama said she want me out the home
I’m too strong

While everyone’s walking around
And they found their way to make their parents proud
I just hang my head to the ground.
Never worth that much to them
They could never raise the perfect children
Well, child cuz’ I cant live up to you either
The reason that my standards are way off of the meter
In a family of finance can’t pretend that I am fine
Success, love and smarts
No place for forbidden arts
You say
“why do it for me?”
You’re right
I swear that I don’t do it from spite
But can’t pretend that it’s all right
If all we ever do is fight
Black sheep of the family
Goes by the name of That Is Me
And, I swear that this is it
Cuz’ I can’t take just one more hit
To the face and knock me down
But I fall without a sound
Sorry, I let you down
Sorry, I joke around
And I know that you think that it’s wrong
But you see I’ve been strong
For way too long


Strong for too long
And now Mama said that she want me gone
I’m too strong
Strong for too long
And now Mama said she want me out the home
I’m too strong

Strong for too long

Track Name: It's All Good
I got big dreams
But I don’t get paid
So I stayed in bed
Until half past eight
And I know,
Oh I know it’s all good

About school,
I ain’t got a clue
So I was hoping to get by
On just being cool
And now I’m hoping, I’m wishing,
Oh how I’m praying,
It’s all good.

Won’t somebody make me
A millionaire
You would throw all of my problems
Into the air
But then a million little dollars would never be enough
So keep your funny little money
Chu, it’s all good.

Me and my man
We’re doing fine
We celebrated New Year’s
With a glass of wine
And though we’re far
We both know that
We’re good

My best friend
She ain’t so lucky,
It’s like her man is a bee
But he ain’t making any honey
So I give her some advice
Oh, girl,
It’s all good

Won’t somebody make me
A millionaire
You would throw all of my problems
Into the air
But then a million little dollars would never be enough
So keep your funny little money
Chu, it’s all good.

And if I hand my work in late,
Change up the due date,
Put a smile across my face
And say it’s good

If you ever see me cry,
Wipe the tears from my eyes,
My head up in the sky,
It’s all good.

And if I wanna sing my songs,
All day long,
With my face in the sun
It’s all good.


It’s all good

Track Name: Josie
I have a little friend name Josie
And Josie is her name
Josie likes to get real cosy
When it starts to rain

But Josie she don’t sleep
With any type of guy
He got to be
The make big money type
No she don’t sleep
With any type of guy
She got
Heart in both hands her triggers in her mind

Don’t funk with no bump-a-dunk

Don’t funk with no bump-a-dunk
So
Don’t funk with no bump-a-dunk
Oh egge.
Don’t funk with no bump-a-dunk

Don’t funk with no bump-a-dunk
So
Don’t funk with no bump-a-dunk
Pay me

I have a little friend name Rosie,

And Rosie likes to get real cosy
Seduction is her game

She’ll temp you in
With dollars on her mind
And show you sin
Then walk way with a smile
She’ll always win
This game is never tied
She’s got
Heart in both hands her triggers in her mind

Don’t funk with no bump-a-dunk
No
Don’t funk with no bump-a-dunk
So
Don’t funk with no bump-a-dunk
Oh egge.
Don’t funk with no bump-a-dunk
No
Don’t funk with no bump-a-dunk
So
Don’t funk with no bump-a-dunk

Oh egge.
Don’t funk with no bump-a-dunk
No
Don’t funk with no bump-a-dunk
So
Don’t funk with no bump-a-dunk
Pay me

Track Name: Rastafari Way (Reprise)
Time and things will remain the same
But people will change up in many ways
So just stay real, just stay the same
Cuz people will try and make you fall again
Life is full up of material things
Too many of them I’m owning
I’m repenting
Joining in,
To your,

Rastafari Way,
Trodding King’s high way,
On and on till glory
Rastafari Way
Na na na na, na

I know people might say a thing
Because I ain’t got locks and I wear white skin
But I see the truth in their teaching
So how can I follow in false preaching?
I don’t claim to religion
But I see a lesson that’s worth learning
I don’t know a thing,
Nothing but love.
And then the storm it came and the water became rough
The people came and the people showed me love.
The storm it came and the water become rough.
The people came and the people showed me love
They call that,


Rastafari Way,
Trodding King’s high way,
On and on till glory
Rastafari Way
Na na na na, na

To make a change globally,
You start out slowly locally,
To change up the order socially
Because nobody’s better than nobody
We spread our message vocally
To kill sufferation totally
From high peaks to low valleys.
Before you call me a revolutionary
Just enjoy yourself loosen up on your leash
Not everything you need you learn in college
The greatest lesson is the one that you live
So before you shoot me down
Just try to hear me out
The highest king don’t wear no crown
Dre Island said


Rastafari Way,
Trodding King’s high way,
On and on till glory
Rastafari Way
Na na na na, na

Rastafari Way,
Trodding King’s high way,
On and on till glory
Rastafari Way
Na na na na, na

Track Name: Maybe This is the End
Just cuz it’s things are going wrong for you
Don’t you take it out on me
Just cuz it’s all falling down around you
Don’t you take it out on me

Cuz I know it means nothing to you
But you hurt me
When you called my treasure noting
Yea you hurt me

Just cuz things are hard for you
Don’t me they’re not for me
Just cuz it’s not working out for you
Don’t mean it is for me

I changed for you
Then you hurt me
You your’re being a destroyer
You’re not happy
You’re not happy

Maybe this is revenge
Maybe this is what being apart really means
Maybe we’re not friends
Could this be where infinity ends?
Maybe I’m too harsh
Maybe I’m not the one with the broken heart
Maybe we’re just tired

We’re both reasonable people,
With open hearts,
We’re both miserable people,
We’re taking it too far.
And I don’t know how much of this is true
My words are deeper than I mean to
I’m not really mad at you,
Just hurt.
Then when I get over it
I’ll control my temperament
We can make the best of it
And talk

Cuz I guess love you
And I’m sorry
I worry for you
You’re not happy
You’re not happy

Maybe this is revenge
Maybe this is what being apart really means
Maybe we’re not friends
Could this be where infinity ends?
Maybe I’m too harsh
Maybe I’m not the one with the broken heart
Maybe we’re just tired

Maybe this is revenge
Maybe this is revenge
Maybe this is revenge
Maybe this is the end
