Johnny Clegg Savuka lyrics - African Litany

Mama Shabalala

Original and similar lyrics
An old lady walking down the dusty farm road Looking for a simple home She doesn't want anything extremely smart And she doesn't need a telephone She's the child of a refugee running from the Zulu war Living from hand to mouth, dodging the wrong arm of the law She's old and she's bent, her eyes can hardly see And she's going home forever to Weenen County Chorus Uhamba njalo wemaShabala Ukhumbula ku-phi? Uhamba njalo wemaShabala Ukhumbula ku-phi wena? Ukhumbula ku-phi wena? Uthwala 'nzima wemaShabalala Iya-phi indlela? Uthwala 'nzima wemaShabalala Iya-phi indlela? Izinto zomhlaba Izinto zomhlaba She's built more homes than fingers on her hands A sharecropper's wife living on County Crown land And then they wrested the harvest from the land and its lords And when her man died she could cry no more tears And she had lost everything that she ever had to lose So she picks up her walking stick and puts on her car-tyre shoes And she's walking in a dream listening for that special sound The echo of the plough whip over Weenen County ground Weenen County you took my man she says You took my home, you took my land You left me all alone - now I'm coming home. Weenen County in the springtime Hadeda's on the wing Blue morning Blue morning Repeat chorus and fade out

Mr. Hood

Above My Floor

AER "Aer"
[Chorus - Dave:] I never wanna know ya I think I see him walking Collide with the ghost above my floor High, headed up the corner I think I see him walking Say hi to the ghost I won’t become [Verse 1 - Carter:] He and I could fight all night But he is me, so get this right I’m torn inside but act so bright And who to be i can’t decide So I’ll roll the rest up, rid the pressure Diesel from forty, on top the dresser Inhale the smoke, I’ll clean the mess up Opaque hope, extreme measures Indulge in all types of pleasures Don’t talk to him I can explain it much better Imma medicate myself if I want to Not a level head and will say anything bout you Looking in the mirror finding someone to shout to The answer’s in the haze so I’ll figure it out soon I’m keeping up cuz I’m fast learner Tryna disregard my evil as the worlds turnin The ego in each of us wants to eat through the furnace And then heat up your house and just laugh it off as it’s burning [Chorus - Dave] [Verse 2 - Carter:] I’ve learned to pick quality over quantity When does confident become cocky? What if i told you that’s not me Hiding behind expensive liquor and kawasakis The diamond’s getting bigger I’m in the rough of the rockies Power trippin, tricked into giving the guy who brought me What he deserves, been on my nerves Despite it all i can find the courage I’m high in attic, so close to the angels But he’s in the basement playing games with the devil I’m tryna get out and see the world from all angles He only wants to stay in and polish up all his medals Spun out in the city makes it hard to say I’m stable Ain’t giving up for nothing no homie I won’t settle Crumbs crushed up on the old wooden table High above the problems is me having my head up

Green Heaven

RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS "The Red Hot Chili Peppers"
About this planet, there is something I know There's a very big difference between above and below A friend foe, or bro, leave your body on the floor Let your spirit fly away like the soul of a crow Here, above land, man has laid his plan And yes, it does include the Ku Klux Klan We got a government so twisted and bent Bombs, tanks and guns is how our money is spent We got V.D., heroin, greed and prostitution Tension, aggravation, L. Ron Hubbard solution Not to mention hard-core chemical pollution If you think you're just away, you're in a mental institution And that's a heart felt shame 'Cos everyone's crazy, everyone's the same So, why should only Larry, Curly and Moe be to blame Time now to take you to a different place Where peace lovin' whales flow through liquid outer space A groovin' and a gliddin' as graceful as lace A never losing touch with the ocean's embrace Diviner than the dolphin, that there is none 'Cause dolphins just-a like to have a lot of fun No one tells 'em how their life is run And no one points at them with a gun They have a lot of love for every living creature The smile of a dolphin is a built in feature They be movin' in schools but everyone's the teacher Someday mister dolphin, I know I'm go'n to meet you Back to the land of the police man Where he does whatever he says he can Including hating you because you're a Jew Or beating black ass, that's nothing new Trigger happy cops, they just like to brawl They use guns, clubs, gas, but that's not all They got puke, ridden prisons and sex sick jails Fuck the poor, if you're rich you pay the bail So support your police, support your local wars That's the way to open economic doors Why do we do it 'Cause the president's a whore We assume the position to sell the ammunition What the fuck It's the american tradition Along with going fishin' apple pies in the kitchen Isn't it bitchin' seeing dead men in ditches

Pick It Up

ANDY MINEO "Formerly Known"
Yo, even if it means carrying an anvil up a steep hill During an avalanche, I wanna walk inside His will These habitats and conditions is giving me the chills This is not a thrill, and it doesn't feel like a walk in the park It kinda seems like I'm walking in the dark, lantern in my heart These thorns and these thistles, are picking me apart And cameras keep flashing, they depicting it as art Fool, I'm on my knees right, stains on my jeans Filthy from head to toe, I finally get to see light (C-Lite) Still in the batter's box after three strikes Walking like Rev Run, steppin' in my three stripes Walking this way and that way, I found a narrow path It's like a tightrope He's gonna catch me, if I fall Guess we all need a challenge, To battle through this race in the Cross that we balance In that execution, jury on your chest Pick it up, and if you would look to it Your soul will find some rest, pick it up Ooh Pick It Up, Pick it up Question, how would your face look if Jesus were to scroll through a page of your Facebook Better one, would He be a bit confused If He seen His name written in your religious views Feeling conviction, they tick like "Didn't you know He's love?" Yeah you right but when He come back here to judge Lamb to the Lion, He's ruling the nations Packing a rod of iron, making a fool of Satan Tattoo on His thigh, King of kings, Lord of lords That's the name that's inscribed White horses he'll ride, got flames in His eyes I'm not playin' His fury is crushing enemies like grapes into wine Ain't nobody know the day or the time So I pray that you make up your mind, deny yourself and take up the pine Live the Cross, it ain't a chain or design, 'cause Sin Is Wack Don't wear one on your chest if you don't bear one on your back, fam. In that execution, jury on your chest Pick it up, and if you would look to it Your soul will find some rest, pick it up Ooh Pick It Up, Pick it up He want us sold out, searching our hearts Even believers got sin that they keep in the dark You know that one thing, God ain't pleased with He told you give it up, you wanna keep it You got a million excuses, a billion reasons But at the end of the day you still ain't at peace yet Well let me let you in on a secret We can't go deeper in our relationship till we leave it Decease it, put it to sleep like a Posturepedic 'Cause sin is a fatal disease and only Jesus can treat it And light of the fact that He freed us, By His blood, cleaned us, washed and redeemed us Uh, that's reason to make us rotate from our old ways Desire to please and obey, tell the Lord okay When the road may seem kinda lonely, my life Your way Yeah

The Winds Of War

JEDI MIND TRICKS "The Psycho-Social, Chemical, Biological, And Electro-Magnetic Manipulation ..."
[the movie "Se7en"] "I'm setting the example, and what I've done in gonna be puzzled over And studied, and followed, forever." [Ikon"] Prepare for the verbal war The hologram advance, psychical form Manifesting universal mind into the lore Travelling lands, I stand on sands of chemical vibration The math, kings of light departed in wrath So where you gonna stand when the Elohi returns Seven great sages throughout the ages say you burn It's my turn to shine I redefine the crystalline-biological structures, implanted in your mind So I find the deaf, dumb and blind And bless 'em with science, and leave the blind ones behind Descending into big balls of mass, in the form of rain The Verbal Hologram brings pain So rearrange, disagreeable ways that brought you the darkness Take hold, and rip out your soul from your carcass And rise away like a sham The Verbal Hologram is the verbal avalanche One last chance to re-plan, and over-stand Before the Hologram sends your camp to Holy Land So ask your man, when he returns to where I sent him The plan was to kill God and reinvent Him Practicing Black Magical tactics like voodoo Attacking like the seven deadly warships of Nibiru [Chorus x3: sample of Masta Killa from "Triumph"] Give insight to the blind The dumb are mostly intrigued by the drum (intrigued by the drum) [Ikon:] I bring forth the mighty [? ], the powerful zapatra The darkening behind you, the biblical omega The Ashtar Command; I come to bring mortals the barathory gland So here I stand on the Four Corners of Stonehendge Travelling through portals, the [? ] of battles, the lord of the immortals The zeal of the seven, the rising of the demon The lost books of the Bible and forgotten books of Eden The heathens, who burn like [? ] Handed the Holy tablets, like Moses The blackening of roses, will send you to the edges of the land The emerald tablets of Thoth The Atlantean The hands of the mighty Lion of Judah Will throw you through the triangular portals of Bermuda Exploring the Hologramic aspects of consciousness For aliens truth devour, orthodox vs. running through fistic equations for power The shower of acid rain brings pain to the land You cannot kill what you cannot see The Verbal Hologram [Chorus x5]
