about

In collaboration with the "Songs for World Peace Project", I've written this track to represent my birth country, The Bahamas. It might not seem so, the first listen through, but every aspect of this song is a reference to the nation that gave me the foundation upon which I've built who I am.

lyrics

If I had a prayer to fix what you’ve been fixing to change your happiness to compliance,
Then, I would just build a church to amass the number of people you knew you loved.
We’d beat back those lashings - those words - that It’s okay to be hurt; Locked out another night -
It’s just biting and scraping a deep red on your proud skin.
My brother, my sister,
That's the number you’ve been gambling.

Look through the passageways of a beating human heart,
And find yourself stuck in a corridor of-
Twisted, insane curiosity of those who ruin,
What was earned,
And what’s brought to thee.

Child of Zion,
You could have been selfish-
Beckoning the call of a sinful heart,
But in this time of understanding,
It’s not what they’re demanding

Child of Zion,
Loud and precious.; impure.
But sure.
That’s what they see,
Someone’s philosophy.

Those people - they came,
And we’re swinging our heads.
We’re shouting and dancing in all these colors,
Free from a two-faced demon.

Child of Zion,
Wild and precious
Impure

Your mind is a state of being.
Your heart is a driving force.
Fearful of your strength,
The roads may crumble.

Your mind is a state of being.
Your heart is a driving force.
Fearful of your strength,
The roads may crumble.

They gotta get you down.
But even that don’t hold water.

Said they gotta get you down.
But even that don’t hold water.

Watch your light break um down.
Dey ain’ ready for a fight.

Not this warrior.
Champion survivor

Your mind is a state of being.
Your heart is a driving force.
Fearful of your strength,
The roads will crumble.

Your mind is a state of being.
Your heart is a driving force.
Fearful of your strength,
The roads will crumble.

I'm making love.
