AFRICAN SON – If someone asked me where would I say I’m from if someone asked me where would I say I belong so much history and so much wrong so much fighting for far too long so much anger and so much pain and then when the power shifts we got to find someone else to blame it’s my home it’s where I’ll stay and where I belong I didn’t choose to be here I was born I might seem out of place here but everything I hold dear is under the African sun what a big what a big and it makes me sick what a big fat stinking lie we were forced to live and we lived by force what a pricey thing to buy if have not’s had and the have’s had not well you think it’d be alright but the just still weeps while the rich man sleeps justice where is your power it’s my home it’s where I’ll stay and where I belong I didn’t choose to be here I was born I might seem out of place here but everything I hold dear is under the African sun who of you among us will cast the first stone the problem’s never been just black or white take me to when time began where every woman every man was born an african a true african under the african sun.
THE NAKED SONG – Breaking all the eggshells as I walk taken out some eyes with my popped champaign cork do you think there’ll ever be the time do you think I’ll get the chance to sing this ryhme you see I’m free no dignity or I just don’t know I’m far too old it’s getting cold found something to put on some stupid girl won’t give a damn how rude how dirty obnoxious or drunk I am when I thought my motivation gone I saw your face and knew that I was wrong that’s me lazy hanging free and barely holding on for half the price its very nice but not the real thing now that you gone away I’m still alive and I guess that’s ok now that you gone away well you were right then all along where did I go wrong looking back at the damage that I’ve done I write it all off to just having fun now I found what I’ve been searching for I’m wrong again was I expecting more my claim to fame myself to blame naked and sincere it’s just a dream and things don’t seem to ever be so clear now that you gone away I’m still alive and I guess that’s ok now that you gone away well you were right then all along I did what I did just because it was there I do what I do and then I don’t really care my organs are bleeding but at least they’re not feeling don’t worry mom I’ll make you proud some day now that you’ve gone away I’m still around and I guess that’s ok now that you’ve gone away it’s getting harder to see right or wrong now that you’ve gone away I’m still alive and I guess that’s ok now that you’ve gone away I guess there’s just no right or wrong so I’ll carry on.
FLAG OF FREEDOM – Wave the flag of freedom from inside the bastille walls brought up bred and brainwashed a new crusader wages war to shed the light to colonise the world civillise the savages outside democracy works so well when everyone’s the same ignorant or blind it’s hard to tell that some aren’t like you and they don’t like you coz meanwhile back in the jungle we get a different picture here on the streets in the squatter camps your dream no one can share tailored for elitists that our tribute feeds the might cultivating 3rd world anarchy what makes you think you got the right you call it liberation how can you still believe you’re free controlled by wealth, tradition, fear or force we’re still a controlled society a hopeless situation to win some have to lose the greed of all the winners is what we call ambition the xenophoebic melting pot’s dillution will prevail and all the opposition must subside and now we cry for revolution well try revolve on this we don’t need a new human system we just need a new human race.
THE GREAT ESCAPE – I’m not a part of you and you’re not of me my own system’s all I ever claimed to believe put up on a pedestal but not by you and nobody reserves the right to tell me what to do I see the value coz it’s my fight I fought I take a pinch of salt with everything I’m taught everybody’s equal but no one’s the same I think you missed the point of going against the grain breaking the chains to blow your brains out beyond that chain’s a prison can’t you see you thought beyond those chains that you’d be free I went my own way and they called me wrong then I finally found a place where I belong I look around and they’re all the same one hundred and eighty degrees I’m back again breaking the chains to blow your brains out beyond that chain’s a prison can’t you see I don’t want to follow or to lead.
LOOP STREET GENERATION – Walked the street where doc clad feet had stumbled once before things don’t seem what they used to be anymore triple X and purchased sex now shine their neon glow run by gangsters paying cops this used to be our home the undernation my education the Loop street generation, my generation walked the street where doc clad feet had once paraded free the dungeon of the underground where everyone would meet now not even in daylight is it safe to walk alone what’s now just a den of iniquity it used to be our home the undernation my education the Loop street generation, my generation does anyone care does anyone care was anybody even there does anyone care does anyone care do you remember Loop street generation.
SO LONG – You’ve been my friend through all these years I saw your pain and you drank my beer I said I’d never let you be alone down and out but you through away all the luck that life ever gave and now you blame the world for doing you wrong the time we spent having such a fun time the thick and thin the good and the bad times it’s sad to say that all that time is gone I don’t want to see you die but the choice is yours not mine I think it’s time you learned to stand alone it’s sad to say good-bye till we meet again.
