Track Name: Suffice - Suffice Single (2010)
I'm caught in too many directions
and I'm trying so hard to show some love and affection
but the situation has got me under suspicion
I'm breaking no rules & needing no protection

but it won't suffice, not to save her life
No it won't suffice, not to save my life

She cries and she cries and she cries tears from her eyes
and I try and I try and I try; it never suffice
and she cries and she cries and she cries every time
and I try and I try and I try; it never suffice, no no no...

Pain stricken for no reason at all
and I'm blaming myself for dropping the ball
Replying to her at her every beck and call
still I can't stop the tears that fall

No it won't suffice, not to save my life
No it won't suffice, not to save my life

She cries and she cries and she cries tears from her eyes
and I try and I try and I try; it never suffice
and she cries and she cries and she cries every time
and I try and I try and I try; it never suffice

Don't believe everything that they're telling you
(Why me?)
because I never do those things to make you feel so blue
(Why me?)
You got to believe in the love that we have together is true
(Why me?)
because I never do those things to make you feel so blue
(Why you?)

I'm caught in too many directions
and I'm trying so hard to show some love and affection
but the situation has got me under suspicion
I'm breaking no rules & needing no protection

but it won't suffice, not to save my life
No it won't suffice, not to save her life

but I cry and I cry and I cry tears from my eyes
and she tries and she tries and she tries; it never suffice
and I cry and I cry and I cry every time
and she tries and she tries and she tries; it never suffice
Track Name: Reincarnation - Reincarnation (2008)
Chorus:

Reincarnation
Starting it over again
If you don't finish what you started then you have to be born again
Reincarnation
The cycle will never end
If you don't finish what you started then you have to be born again

Verse 1:

Here I am back again
My Karma's got me a new skin
Tell me will I lose? Tell me will I win?
It all depends on the life I spend
'Cause I'm not really of this world
The situations I find myself in
Now it's time for I-n-I to break the chain
so that I can be released again
I've got to know myself
Keep seeking the light
Knowledge overstanding
Become eternal light
Liberation freedom & forget all the strife without all the illusion your future is bright
See for yourself & follow your path
Seek the truth 'cause that's all you have
Count your blessings you must do the math
& you will learn the facts

(Chorus)

Verse 2:

Yes the mystic shall rise again
You'll be looking for the Christ within
& then the revolution begins
& you'll never be afraid of sin
Living for the purpose of life
When you center & you focus your mind
Your purpose is to join the divine
& all of the mountain you climb
You've got to seek for yourself & find out the truth
To know the tree you must know the root
You never finish 'til your journey is through
Yes, there's many lessons for you
Seek the light & follow the path
Stay with your vision 'cause that's all you have
Count your blessings you must do the math &
There's no turning back

(Chorus)
Track Name: Cool & Proper - Reincarnation (2008)
Intro:

Wicked on the bottom me say dready 'pon top

Chorus:

Rasta Living cool & proper...
-i'm a seek the truth i don't deal with no lie
-me a live in Love with no fuss no fight
-i don't love the wrong, yes me love the right
-We don't live in darkness we seek the light

Verse 1:

When you see i come i bring respect & love
Living virtuous i don't live like no thug
Embracing all my brothers & my sisters with hugs
Dealing with forgiveness i'm not holding no grudge
All the negative i sweep it under the rug
Clearness of the mind:
Never using no drugs
With the reggae music roots rock rub-a-dub
Always positive when i step in the club
Cuz i'm a let my locks down
Flash it when we rock up on stage
I and I flow and flow and flow
Locks down dready gonna rock this place
Keep the party going, going, going
When the Rasta man come Love is what we bring
When the Iya man come Love is what we sing

(Chorus)

Verse 2:

Rasta know the time getting dread again
Iya say my eyes getting red again
Tell it to your foe tell it to your friend
Rasta know the time getting dread again
Cuz real Rasta man don't commit no crime
Responsibility I man don't waste no time
Meditation, concentration to clear the mind
Peace & Love & iNatty you find
So give it to me plain & simple
With the lyrics that coming from the mental
All you find in life is coincidental
You have to find the Love that's deep within you
Cuz i'm a let my locks down
Flash it when we rock up on stage
I and I flow and flow and flow
Locks down dready gonna rock this place
Keep the party going, going, going

(Chorus)

Where there is darkness let there be light
Where there is wrong let there be right
