Track Name: Ferguson
What have we done, oh tell me what have we done,
No we will not close our eyes, we will not hold our tongues
There’s another poor boy dead, on the streets of Ferguson

Another shot, fired from another gun
Every moment is a choice, can never be undone
What a wicked choice we made, on the streets of Ferguson

His hands were up, oh what more is there to say
Michael Brown was not a killer, they killed him him anyway
When will black lives start to matter in the grand ole USA

Land of the free, and the home of the enslaved
First they teach you to be loyal, they tell you to be brave
And they hand to you a weapon, while they dig for you a grave

Promise me, you will not walk or run
Better keep out of the shadows, and keep out of the sun
Oh whenever you go out, on the streets of Ferguson
Track Name: A love song
I don’t want to be your master, I don’t want to be your slave
I just want to wander the world with you 'til our ashes are scattered into the waves

Sometimes I wake up in the morning, I feel like blowing my horn
But then when the chill of the evening comes I’ll be back in our kitchen, keeping you warm

The minutes may seem like hours, the hours they may seem like days
And someone may tell us we cannot go on, but I give you my word dear, we’ll find a way

The brooks run into the ocean, the ocean run into the sea
Someday when the flowers are blooming still, we’ll lay ourselves down on a pallet of leaves
Track Name: Words Words Words
The nighttime is shimmering in the trees
And the air is growing cold
And I'm sure your thoughts are not with me
but I'll love you til I'm old
The whiskey takes the edge away
And clouds roll through my mind
And I dream of things I'll never be
And you from time to time
oo-oh oo-oh oo-oh
Rest rest beneath the rocks and the trees
No more you and no more me
Peace Peace I ask of thee
any-one’s been wronged by me

The days go by like airplanes overhead
I can't see them through the leaves
And through these woods I've often tread
Every path leads to the sea
And in these woods I've found
I found rest rest rest
Peace Peace
No more you
No more me
Rest rest beneath the rocks and the trees
No more you and no more me
Peace Peace I ask of thee
any-one’s been wronged by me
Please Please Please give me your ear
Friends and family gathered here
Words, they are not the way
Words, words they are not the way
Words the are no the way
To make the change we need to make today
Track Name: Aminata
Aminata Aminata
Ce que tu recherche tu le trouveras
Ce que tu recherche tu le trouveras

Si tu veux resté dans le village
Si tu veux partir, a la grande ville
Tu dois decider, ça ne sera pas façile
Mais dans cette vie, oh, c’est a toi le choix

Aminata Aminata
Ce que tu recherche tu le trouveras
Ce que tu recherche tu le trouveras

Ta mere va te dire, tu dois faire comme si
Ton pere va te dire, tu dois faire comme ça
Mais si tu écoute, le choix de ton coeur
Oh ma chérie, tu trouvera la voie

Aminata Aminata
Ce que tu recherche tu le trouveras
Ce que tu recherche tu le trouveras
