1. BIG TAKEOVER

No one dared to show for that shower, when nobody turned
Out to be clean, was not even touched by the water, just
Another Nazi scheme.

Yeah, The Big Takeover yeah-ah-, My, big
Takeover yeahh,yeahhh.

All throughout this so-called nation, prepare yourself for
The final quest. This world is doomed with its own
Interrogation, just another Nazi test!

Yeah, The Big Takeover yeah-ah-, My, the big
Takeover yeahh-yeah-yeahhh.

So understand me when I say, there's no love for this U.S.A.
This world is doomed with it's own interrogation,
Just another nazi test.

Yeah, The Big Takeover yeah-ah-,
My Big Takeover yeahh,yeah-yeah.

3. RIGHT BRIGADE

You can't disappear anymore,
I see your face lurking outside the window,
You say you're a trife, I'm a bore,
You touch yourself put your face in the pillow,
But the funny thing about you is,
You remembered to leave it behind,
And the funny thing about me is,
I'm a member of the Right Brigade,
Makes no difference to me what side you choose,
What side will lose,
All there is to perceive is what I want,
And I know how to get it,
But the funny thing about you is,
You remembered to leave it behind,
And the funny thing about me is,
I'm a member of the Right Brigade.




4. JOSHUA'S SONG

We're gonna have to draw the line.
We're gonna have to free our lives.
It's time for us to fight and die.
This time for us and you know why.
With revolution in the air and people changing everywhere. Step forward now, no need to hide.
We can't lose with Jah on our side.
Oh bring down the walls, Bring the Walls down.




5. I AND I SURVIVE

Why must all the people, keep on shooting and robbing.
Why? Why must all the people, keep on killing and fighting
No, not I.
I and I will would never try.
No, not I.
I and I would never try.
And why must the rich man, keep on hoarding all his money.
And why must the this poor man, my living ain't very funny.
No, not I.
I and I would never try.
No not I.
I and I would never, try to live that way.
No not I.
I and I would never try.
No not I.
I and I would never...
And what did Jah show them.
I and I survive.
They tried to stop this nation.
But I and I survive.
To chant down creation, I and I survive.
And once again a nation.
I and I...
Try to live that way.




6. BANNED IN D.C.

Banned in D.C. with a thousand more places to go.
Gonna swim the Atlantic,
Cause that's the only place I can Go.
You, you can't hurt me, why?! I'm banned in D.C. D.C.
We, we got ourselves, gonna sing it, gonna love it, gonna
Work it out to any length.
No worry, don't worry, about what people say
We got ourselves, we gonna make it anyway.
You, you can't hurt me, why I'm banned in D.C. D.C. D.C.
And if you ban us from your clubs, it's the right time,
With the right mind.
And if you think we really care,
Then you won't find in my Mind.

My oh my i lay you down upon the ground so soon no more.
No you can't afford to close your doors so soon no more.
My oh my i let you down upon the ground




7. SUPERTOUCH

I've got that supertouch
Chances are I've got too much
I've come to let you see
That you also can be free
It seems like everytime we all try to go underground
The stinkin' troopers them,
They think that we are fooling Around

We have had about enough
Now we're gonna get real tough
It happens everyday,
That's why we got P.M.A.

We can see most everything
We've got that supertouch
We can see most everything
We've got that supertouch

(People just pretending, that's a let down
Undercover lover, that's my heart now
Struggle just in living, that's the realm of
Accept me as I'm not, and that's a shitfit

My best ain't good enough for you
My test is what you gonna do
Ain't no any kind of way
Love was lost in yesterday

Now we've felt this, so you'll get yours now
Everybody's living and nobody's giving
And nobody gives a damn
You must understand me, the end is surely coming
Prepare for the final plan

People just pretending, that's a let down
Undercover lover, that's my heart now
Struggle just in living, that's the realm of
accept me as i'm not, and that's a shitfit




8. DESTROY BABYLON

Don't beat yourself upside the head.
Don't beat yourself for this.
Don't beat yourself upside the head,
Don't beat yourself for this.
Oh, there is a way out.
It's a natural plan, the natural.
How many days do we sit around, while they keep on burying
All our leaders in the ground.
Organize, centralize.
It's time for us to fight for our lives.
Destroy Babylon.
Oh there is a way.




9. F.V.K (FEARLESS VAMPIRE KILLERS)

The bourgeoisie had better watch out for me
All throughout this so called nation
We don't want your filthy money
We don't need your innocent bloodshed
We just wanna end your world
Well my mind's made up
Yes it's time for you to pay
Better watch out for me
I'm a member of the F.V.K.




10. THE MEEK

Jah children, jah children, yeah
The meek shall inherit the earth.
Jah children, jah children, yeah
The meek shall inherit the earth.

Why must Rasta live this way?
The creator has shown us a better way.
So why must I and I fight each other?
With unity and love for your brother,
There`s always a better way.

Jah children, jah children, yeah
The meek shall inherit the earth.
Jah children, jah children, yeah
The meek shall inherit the earth.

In due season, each will pay
According to the works that
They have done on Earth today.
So I and I, we shall live in truth.
His Majesty, His Majesty
Has shown us a better day.

Blessed is the man who walketh not
In the counsel of the ungodly,
Nor standeth in the way of the sinners,
Nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful,
Nor taketh delight in the way that the unrighteous go
And he should be like a tree
Planted by the rivers of water
That bringeth forth fruit in its due season.
Nor shall his leaves wither,
Nor shall his locks wither,
Nor shall he be smitten by the sun of the day,
And nor shall he be smitten by the moon of the night.
But be prosperous in the way that he goes,
In the way of our lord Jah ! Rastafari!




11. I

Not as much but with such intensity.
I'd like to be what they would not want me to be.
I like to cram their chivalry inside their guts.
I'd like to leave it all behind with the rest of the nuts
I, I.
Not as muich but with more feeling now.
I'd like to forget about you and try to break it somehow. I'd like to push it aside until I can see some more.
I'd like to leave you where I found you lyin on the floor. I, I.
I guess it's too bad, I guess it's too bad.
I guess it's too bad, I gues its too bad for you.
It seems the truth always prevails on your face and in the End I see what's in it's place.
So in the future you just may see,
That's what you'll receive is what you gave me




12. COPTIC TIMES

These are coptic times with no burdents over me.
So I choose to read the Holy Bible.
And take what Jah has viven me.
It seems that all through life, one fact prevails.
That the righteous all live on
These are coptic times.
Leaving this place won't be no big disgrace, let loose
Those lies and hold on to your faith.
Revelation been foretold, now the next is up to you.
I choose to do the right and live in truth.
Israel must unite, Israel must unite.
It's the youth who God has ordained and he's calling you.




13. SAILIN' ON

You don't want me anymore, so
I'll just walk right out the Door.
Played a game right from the start, I trust you, you used
Me now my hearts all torn apart.
So I'm sailin, well I'm sailin on.
Well I'm movin, hey I'm movin on.
Sail on, sail on.
Try to see if I'll give up.
But there wasn't any luck.
It's a fact, fact of life.
That's the games, games of strife.
Everything is all in stride.
So I'm sailin, well I'm sailin on.
Well I'm movin, hey I'm movin on.
Sail on, sail on.
There's too many years with too many tears, and too many
Days, with nothing to say, and how will we know when
There's nowhere to grow.
And what's the facts for life to show.




14. ROCK FOR LIGHT

So you say you gonna live the truth.
Well have you checked out he future of the youth.
Doesn't seem to be much left for them.
But there is an answer for all
Of Jah Children we don't Want no war.
We don't need no violence.
We just want what's right.
Some peace and love.
We don't want to war, wedon't want no violence.
We just want what's right, some peace and love.
Rock for light.
We come, we come to rock for light.




15. RALLY ROUND JAH THRONE

We gonna rally round jah throne in Mt. Zion I.
Round Mt Zion I.
At mt. Zion I.
I guess it had to be that way.
And when I and I reach Mt. Zion I.
We won't be sad. We wont be sad.
And when I and I reach Mt. Zion I.
We will be glad, we will be glad.




16. AT THE MOVIE

Here's to the maker,the film double taker,
The illusion type Faker.
Guaranteed shaker, para vision viewer, or it just may
Seemlost the real scope of life.
The hope of life, to cope with life,
And found it on the Screen.
And how many times have we heard that line do you think
I'm Blind to trade my mind for what you call fine
Never in my time I'm not in your movie.
Hey, what can it be on the big white screen
Hey how can you See youre living in 3D.
I guess you think you're at the movies somewhere
Stale popcorn don't you stand in your chair stale popcorn
Don't you stand in you chair.
A child is influenced by the make believe to take advantage
Of this truth is cold hearted sin.
So I say to youth right now.
Don't sway to the unjust,
No matter what they say, never give in.




17. RIOT SQUAD

You, you better get ready.
You better hold steady.
They can't control this angry mob.
They'll have to call the Riot Squad.
Riot Squad.
They'll have to call the Riot
They'll have to call the Riot Squad




18. HOW LOW CAN A PUNK GET

I didn't mean to rip off.
I thought it was a get off in mine.
I tried to make the scence off.
The plan was doomed to set off on time.
The time that I was wastin'
I spent on only chasin in the pits,
And now I pay the price
To make the sacrifice of the fool.

I was on me.
I chose not to be,
Cheated on part of the thrill,
Bargain was not fulfilled.
Lost in a crazy scheme
That got strapped up in my dream.
And now my times run out,
What's it all about.

Another D.O.A can you help me...

How low can a punk get?
My, my, my...
How low can a punk get?

I was on me.
I chose not to be,
Cheated on part of the thrill,
Bargain was not fulfilled.
Lost in a crazy scheme
That got strapped up in my dream.
And now my times run out,
What's it all about.

Another D.O.A can you help me...

How low can a punk get?
My, my, my...
How low can a punk get?

I was on me.
I chose not to be,
Cheated on part of the thrill,
Bargain was not fulfilled.
Lost in a crazy scheme
That got strapped up in my dream.
And now my times run out,
What's it all about!




19. WE WILL NOT

Ms. babylon your queendom is doomed across this land you'll
Spread your no more gloom.
Cause one ah thes days you gonna get your jilt and we'll
Never hae to deal with no more of your filth.
