The News 03:04
The News Verse Take me back To my home I’m on my own In the great unknown I still find gold In the sun Truth be told I’m the lucky one Chorus So take your news Take your bad news away Take your news Take your bad news away Verse I love the sound Of the night I got peace of mind In the dark I still find joy Day by day In things I do In words I say Chorus So take your news Take your bad news away Take your news Take your bad news away Verse The headlines shout The TV cries Bad news sells And the good news dies Simple things Keep the world at bay So words you say Don't hurt me Chorus Take your news Take your bad news away Take your news Take your bad news away

Bury the Devil Chorus Gonna dig a hole Gonna dig a hole Gonna dig a hole Put the devil in it Put the devil in it Verse There was a mighty poet Who had a love for the devine He went by Hafiz he lived for peace Open up your mind to the words he left behind He was a gift to mankind if you look into the rhyme Where bombs hit the kids And the kids get guns And the mother’s cry And the cities die And the flags fly high By the target on the tongue Of a pilot on a run for God Chorus Gonna dig a hole Gonna dig a hole Gonna dig a hole Put the devil in it Put the devil in it Verse In a big town tiny town Someday soon The man in the moon Gonna go and get the goon That deals drugs to the fools That sell it in the schools Kids tap into a vein to forget the pain They feel good till blame takes aim and the shame Will make their soul crave to dig their own grave And the mother’s cry and the city’s die There’s a war outside and a war inside Protect them Can I get an amen Chorus Gonna dig a hole Gonna dig a hole Gonna dig a hole Put the devil in it Put the devil in it Verse From the East to the West It’s all about the money It ain’t about God If it’s all about the honey Sing the songs unsung For the old and the young Protect them Can I get an amen Chorus Gonna dig a hole Gonna dig a hole Gonna dig a hole Put the devil in it Put the devil in it

Trouble's on Your Mind (free) 02:52
Trouble Is on Your Mind Verse The river is rising The well is running dry The river is rising The well is running dry You brought the mountain to you Now that mountain you must climb Trouble oh trouble Is on your mind Verse You reached for the spirits You’re tangled in their vines You reached for the spirits You’re tangled in their vines You brought the mountain to you Now that mountain you must climb Trouble oh trouble Is on your mind Verse With mercy and courage You’ll make it through hard times With mercy and courage You’ll make it through hard times You brought the mountain to you Now that mountain you must climb Trouble oh trouble Is on your mind Verse The river is rising The well is running dry The river is rising The well is running dry You brought the mountain to you Now that mountain you must climb Trouble oh trouble Is on your mind

Call You To the Carpet Chorus I’m gonna call you to the carpet and sweep up all your lies I’m gonna call you to the carpet and sweep up all your lies I’ll hang you upside down till the truth rolls out your eyes Verse Karma’s gonna catch you Take you to the dungeon Bring the dragon to you Turn the heat on high Flames are gonna lick you Smoke is gonna choke you When they ask about you Gonna say you fried Verse You can try and hide it Go on and deny it I’m gonna lose my pride If I let you slide When I find out All your secrets The truth is gonna ring Up above the harvest Gonna come the reckoning Chorus I’m gonna call you to the carpet and sweep up all your lies I’m gonna call you to the carpet and sweep up all your lies I’ll hang you upside down till the truth rolls out your eyes Verse Midnight’s gonna get you Pull you in the shadows I’ll take up with the serpents In your native tongue Some will call it voodoo Some will call it freaky You’ll be honest to me By the time I’m done Verse Gabriel blew a trumpet Moses parted the sea But the original sin We blame on Eve We blame it on Eve For the likes of you I’m gonna call you to the carpet Till your lies run true Chorus I’m gonna call you to the carpet and sweep up all your lies I’m gonna call you to the carpet and sweep up all your lies I’ll hang you upside down till the truth rolls out your eyes

The Lowdown 03:26
The Lowdown Verse I’ve been feeling lowdown Got trouble in surround sound I’ve got to spin that record ‘round And get funky with some Motown Verse Now I’ve been swimming upstream I’ve been chasing after my dreams I went and had my fortune read She took my hands and shook her head Chorus She said Take your lowdown Make it uptown And shake it away Verse I got to get out of my own head Go play some music on the street Got to jam out on some bucket drums And stomp and shout on the backbeat Chorus She said Take your lowdown Make it uptown And shake it away Verse I’ve got to move it like the Jackson Five Leave my troubles on the flipside I got to spin that record ‘round And get funky with some Motown Chorus She said Take your lowdown Take your lowdown uptown Take your lowdown Take your lowdown Take your lowdown Make it uptown And shake it away

Double Shift Tuesday Verse It’s double shift Tuesday On minimum wage How'd you end up here I’m reachin’ for the future Through the wheel in a cage How'd you end up here Not about to give in But I could use a good year There’s a stranger in the mirror Starin’ back at me asking How'd you end up here Verse Business is slow My raise is a no go My boss is king He’s the only one who thinks so Though I live close To the bone It takes a payday loan To keep me in my home The thought of givin’ up Is all I really fear I do battle with the demons In my head at night asking How'd you end up here Solo Made some mistakes Yeah that's on me How'd you end up here You live and learn That nothin’s ever free How'd you end up here Same ol’ same is all I see I ended up where I ain’t meant to be There’s a stranger in the mirror Starin’ back at me asking How'd you end up here How’d you end up here
