Track Name: Off With My Hat
I went to water my garden,

Because it was dry.



When I went outside,

It was raining

And I was dry



Off with my hat,

I let the water,

fill my eyes.
Track Name: Black and Gold
I was working at my night job

Thought about when women Started working

All the stores had to

Stay open late

'Cause there was no one to Shop during the day

So I'm a working woman

And I have no choice



When I read my

Book with black armor

And golden edges

I think of the

Black streets here

And of the gold streets there

And how I love my king



I was talking to

An abandoned wife

Thinking 'bout what love

Used to mean

How I was taught to get by

On my own

How I shouldn't need anyone

So I'm a lonely woman

Scared and stuck at home.


When I read my

Book with black armor

And golden edges

I think of the

Black streets here

And of the gold streets there

And how I love my king
Track Name: Quiver and Shake
I felt the bus quiver

Maybe from the cold,

Maybe from the riders

I sure know why I did

The weight of the world

Just dawned on me

And somebody lifted

Lifted it



Now I'm

Lifted

Lifted and quivering.



I heard the house shake

maybe from the cold

waybe from the weight

I sure know why I did

The weight of my sin

just dawned on me

and somebody lifted it

lifted it



Now I'm

Lifted

Lifted and shaking.
Track Name: Greater Good
They told me it was for

The greater good

Your blood

I didn't understand

The weight of your life

Til I had mine, my second life



Exceedingly, abundantly more

Than I could ever ask for

Exceedingly, abundantly more

Than I could ever ask for



They told me not to read it With my head

Your word

I didn't understand what was wrong with my mind

Til I had, a heart
Track Name: My Lord
I'm going to stand

Close to you

So I can melt

I'm going to stand

Close to you

So I can melt

No more hard heart,

No more hard heart



Well, you don't know my Lord

If you don't know rest

You don't know my Lord

If this is over your head

And if you know my Lord then

Hallelujah



All those kids running round

All those kids running round

All those kids running round

All those kids running round



They'll be scared when my Lord comes down



Well, you don't know my Lord

If you don't know rest

You don't know my Lord

If this is over your head

And if you know my Lord

Hallelujah
Track Name: Hit By Wind
I walk out my door and

Get hit by wind

I walk out my door and

Get hit by wind

Lord I pray, you keep me and My friends from sin

Lord I pray, you keep me and My friends from sin



Because in the air I can smell Smoky bars

In the air I can smell

Smoky bars

And God I know,

It will be hard



When they hear me

And I am singing

When they hear me

And I am singing

God I pray

It's hallelujahs ringing

God I pray

It's hallelujahs ringing

God I pray

It's hallelujahs ringing
Track Name: Sailor
Oh, when we were young

Well I guess we're still young

But do you think we're

Still the same?

I don't think so, no

We've come a long way,

But it's a mighty big sea

We've come a long way,

But it's a mighty big sea



I don't think paddling will

Do much good

When you're sailing and There's a gust of wind so

Quit acting like you know What you are doing

And let go, Sailor, let go

Quit acting like you know What you are doing

And let go, Sailor, let go



Oh when we get old

Well I don't know if

We'll get old

But do you think

We'll be the same?

I don't think so, no.

We'll have gone a long way,

But it's a mighty big sea

We'll have gone a long way,

But it's a mighty big sea



I don't think paddling will

Do much good

When you're sailing and There's a gust of wind so

Quit acting like you know What you are doing

And let go, Sailor, let go

Quit acting like you know What you are doing

And let go, Sailor, let go
Track Name: Simone
I asked Simone

What am I here for?

Blaise blurted out,

Take a gamble, take a gamble, take a gamble.

Reason it out…

So I choked my heart

But it never quit beating

No matter how hard I beat it



So I asked Bob

What do I do?

Digable said

Do what you feel,

Do what you feel

So I was in jail

'Cause I stole and I lied

I stole and I lied

I stole and I lied

I stole and I lied



So I asked God

What is this?



The spirit Answered

Come child, come woman

Come child, come woman

My life didn't end,

It began with

Two lines and three days, Two lines and three days

Two lines and three days, Two lines and three days
Track Name: Hold Tongue
Quiet down you mind of mine
And let the Lord speak life
Pray and read you stubborn being
His words are in the light
Don't you roll heel to my toe
Until I've heard from his it's right

Hold your tongue
Before you kill someone

On my own, I am no good
But in the spirit I will bare fruit
As crazy as it sounds all day
I see that you are good
You tell me go bear my fruit
My face is low, quite near ground

Hold your tongue
Before you kill someone
Track Name: Kitchen
I was cooking in somebody else's kitchen

All of the food was burning

I told the guests

I knew what I was doing

Nobody was into believing



I was robbing with

Somebody else's gun

Boy was my hand shaking

All of my shots were missing

Oh, thank Heaven.
