3 Amen

Verily I say amen, amen. Verily I say amen, amen.

Who will profit without shame, those who profit from human pain.
Now let peace be your profit, and let love be your saint.
To keep the monsters’ belly filled, many of my people are killed.
There is a thirst that must be quenched, for the hearts of the broken.

Verily I say amen, amen. verily I say amen, amen.

How much is that black soul? How deep is that black hole?
Don’t let money be your master, freedom for the modern slave.
I’m giving out the thorn with the rose, oh let all the people bemoan.
It feels like the end of the days, oh my God the devil will pay.

Verily I say, I’m building bridges. Amen, amen.
Verily I say, let Noah build the ark. Amen, amen.
Verily I say, bring the people together. Amen, amen.
Verily I say, thats what I’m living for. Amen, amen.

By the still waters we lay; in the green grass we play.
It cost to keep this world afraid, a price that we just cant pay.
To keep the monsters from the gates, we gonna pull together.
For the suffering to be saved, hey, we gonna to pull together!

Verily I say, time is now. Amen, amen.
Verily I say, it has begun. Amen, amen.
Verily I say and here I come.
Verily I say, I’m the first born son. Amen, amen.

4 Love Is A Rebel
5 Weekend's Long

I found a place where the weekend’s long
Don’t check no luggage just carry on

Why should you laugh instead of cry
Why should you live instead of die
I’ll be your reason

It’s ok go on and give me a try
Walk with your head way up above the sky
I’ll be your reason yeah

Don’t be afraid for what is to come
It’s been too long since that bell was rung
Ooh yeah i’ll be the reason yea

Why you should even have a little faith
Why you should grow and cultivate
I’ll be your reason yeah

I found a place where the weekend’s long found a place
Don’t check no luggage just carry on all night long
Leave the sorrows indoctrinated
Cause now you’ve been emancipated

Say come on it couldn’t be a sin
Maybe your god could see the heart of things
And i’ll be your reason

Sometimes you need some time to play
You think you lost but you just found your way
Ooh yeah i’ll be your reason come on now

I found a place where the weekend’s long found a place
Don’t check no luggage just carry on all night long
Leave your sorrows indoctrinated
Cause now you’ve been emancipated

What you believe in isn’t what you thought
Oh my love i wouldn’t break your heart
I’ll be your reason
Pick you up at four four five
Keeping hope and dream alive
Ooh yes i’ll be your reason yeah

Are you ready for the time of your life hey we gonna live it up
And everything’s gonna be more than alright you know we never giving up
Are you ready for the time of your life hey we gonna live it up
And everything’s gonna be more than alright you know we never giving up

Leave the sorrows indoctrinated cause now you are emancipated

I found a place where the weekend’s long found a place

I found a place where the weekend’s long found a place
Don’t check no luggage just carry on
Leave the sorrows indoctrinated
Cause now you’ve been emancipated

I found a place where the weekend’s long found a place
