It's the tom tom tom beat of the medicine man Driving the eyeyevil spirits back to a rhythmless land Now it's a layayptop and a microphone Fifty thouwowosand watts and still going strong You hear the bangbangbangin' of the drum machine You can't help bowowouncin' like a Mexican jumping bean Soon everyboyoyody has the urge to move It's like an owowocean swelling to the thunderous groove You got free will but you're flesh and blood You can't stand still 'cause you're flesh and blood When that wall of sound hits you like a flash flood Then you can't stop moving 'cause you're flesh and blood There's no resistance 'cause we're flesh and blood We go that distance 'cause we're flesh and blood When that wall of sound hits us like a flash flood Then we keep on moving 'cause we're flesh and blood Now the crowowowd starts to move as one You lose your miyiyind 'cause it's so much primitive fun You feel that rururumbling way down below That synthesiyiyizer noise begins to grow and grow. It hypnotiyiyizes everyone in the room Then the emcee drops it and the bottom goes boom There ain't a sowowoul isn't covered in sweat And the LEDs are flashing but it ain't nearly over yet
Plans to make and facts to face There ain't no future in this place Time's ticking away, time keeps ticking away If we don't rise, then we will fall We don't need an excess of caution Doing nothing is not an option Time's ticking away, time keeps ticking away If we don't rise, then we will fall
For as long as I remember I've been searching for the holyland From across the ocean Over the mountain to the desert sand Under every rock and stone Looking for a sacred plan But now I understand This is the holyland Every drop of rain Blade of grass Grain of sand Is in the holyland Everywhere I go I see it Even though so many want to stake their claim They say history and gods foretell the answer Conjure up some ancient game Take away the gates and fences Everything is all the same No matter where you stand You're in the holyland Every hill and dale Mountain stream Forest stand Earth is the holyland
I'm not a scientist Everybody likes to brag these days And yet they still insist Twisting all the facts their way Gravity is real Just step off the ledge and you will fall Summers get hotter Winters get colder Writing on the wall You'd have to be blind Eyes that will not see You say God will handle everything Seems like he ain't done shit so far Take yourself for example You're still wishing on a star Wish upon that star But you see God is a scientist He don't play dice with the universe It don't take an Einstein And your fake and cynical solutions It's as if you're trying to make things worse And you know the reason 'Cause you never want to see the Writing on the wall Don't want to see Writing on the wall Turn your back to the wall Writing on the all Hide your eyes now Writing on the wall There it is Writing on the wall Plain as day Writing on the wall Don't look away Writing on he wall Gotta face the truth Writing on the wall WAKE UP!

Life is hard enough Even if you do find love It can be so tough Losing what you're dreaming of When your lovers are untrue And the whole world seems out to hurt you Know that I would try everything I knew Just to soothe you I will soothe you Maybe I can't make that dream come true But I can soothe you I know how it feels Trying hard to keep things real But it's so plain to see You don't have a heart of steel And anytime I hear you weep Suddenly I can't eat, can't sleep Not until I've done all that I can do Just to soothe you I will soothe you Maybe I can't make gray skies turn blue But I can soothe you
I am Christopher Columbus On the bounding main Searching for a new world And I don't know when I'm back again If I can find my way back home again I am scanning the horizon But there's nothing there to see Wondering where to turn to And the quest seems more like a fantasy With every passing moment it seems to be And that's the thing that frightens me Whenever I feel afraid I put my faith in terra firma And I'm never far away Because you're my terra firma I am on Apollo seven Heading into space Where no man has ever ventured And at times I feel so out of place Then the moon looks like your shining face I see Terra far below me Green and white and blue I know you are down there somewhere But I feel so far away from you Hoping that you're thinking of me too Even though I know you always do Whenever I feel alone I come home to terra firma The place that I call my own Because you're my terra firma I am off to great adventures Leaving you behind Far beyond the border And I have no clue what I will find But the thought of home never leaves my mind Though the minutes stretch to hours And the hours stretch to days Through the trials and tribulations When it seems like I'm so far away And it's just too high a price to pay There is one thing I can always say
Sitting at the table losing every hand And the cards come up the same I keep thinking I'll get lucky, something's gotta change And I will catch a flame I'm as cold as January, cursed as a Jonah But I ca't quit the game Another round, I am all in I'll beat the odds, someday I'll win Luck of the draw, Out of my hands Whatever comes, it's up to chance Wager it all, accept the deal My fate is sealed Gripped by an addiction That is driving me to hell But it's easily encouraged, everybody all around me Has the malady as well We would rather take our chances, bet away the future Than face up to the smell Gamble away the moon and stars The world to be that is not ours Drunk with the lust for easy wealth We'll take the chance, bankrupt ourselves We bet the farm, no turning back Even or odd, on red or black Our future is no longer ours The outcome rests with higher powers All bets are down, now spin the wheel Our fate is selaed
Why don't you come on down from your skyscraper? Why don't you come on down and join the party Everybody from the hood is all here We singin' oldies and drinkin' cold beer So won't you come on down from your skyscraper? Seen you riding around in your Escalade Made all your bones but you never paid any attention To the other dimension You got a solid gold grill and an Armani suit Big bodyguard and a haughty attitude But what goes up comes down sooner or later Think twice before you reach the elevator Why don't you come on down from your skyscraper? Why don't you come on down and join the party, Brothers and sisters, strangers and cousins We playing' volleyball and doin' the dozens So won't you come on down from your skyscraper? You feel safe and secure in your castle in the sky You don't have to be afraid of the average guy down below ya Come on down and we'll show ya You can keep all your money cause the party is free We could be friends if you want to be Because a good life spent/lived in an ivory tower Don't mean a thing without some people power
They say there may well be a million other planets Just like this island Earth And that the day will come when can travel there and stage some kind of rebirth Until you realize they're so far away, so far away, light years away There is no other place in this universe like this island Earth We fantasize about despoiling other worlds Like this island Earth Some believe that aliens are testing us Like they had eyes on this island Earth We get amusement from crop circles Or when a cow gets inverted We want to think that we're not alone, we're not alone All on our own There are no aliens looking to take over this island earth We are the only ones to blame for what becomes of this island earth Because the garden world where we used to thrive Will be a place where nothing living survives And we finally realize we must strive to save this island earth There is no other place in this universe like this island Earth We have all the water in the galaxy, for what that is worth We behave like we're not of this world We turn the garden of eden to hell Where is the love For this island Earth?
