4 Alarm Karen: Try to Put Her Out !

See a little seagull on a marble stair
Tryin’ to find the ocean, lookin’ everywhere, yeah

Hard times in the city, In a hard town by the sea
Ain’t nowhere to run to / There ain’t nothin’ there for free

Copper on the corner, pleading for a drink, yeah
Drunk lyin’ on the sidewalk, bleeding in the rain

Good people hide their faces / and they hide their eyes
’cause the city is dying / and they don’t know why

Oh, oh Baltimore
Ain’t it hard just to live
Oh, Baltimore
Ain’t it hard just to live, just to live

Got my sister, Sandy, and my little brother, Ray, yeah
Buy a big old wagon / To haul us all away

Live out in the country /Where the mountain’s high
I’m never goin’ back there ’til the day I die

Oh, oh Baltimore
Ain’t it hard just to live
Oh, Baltimore
Ain’t it hard just to live, just to live
Just to live
Oh.. Baltimore

Elf Efficacy in Dub

THANK YOU, JASPA !

Yet there’s still one more realm I explore in conjecture:
the sounds at that gathering.  Classical?   Rock?
Unending revivalist Christian refrains?
Shall we headbang in heaven with glorified brains?
Psychedelic/psychotic . . . or  Handel and Bach?
(Lighten up. It’s the end of my bible-school lecture.
You’ve seen a few rooms of my castle-in-air,
and we ALL know it’s reggae they’re playing up there…)

Land of Love

♥ HAPPY VALENTINE’s DAY ♥

Sons of Light (1976)

Land of love… Land of love… Land of love… Land of love…
Everyday, I pray to JAH above
to take us home, to the land of love
Oh no, money shall not lead our life
only the Way is just, to live and not die…

That’s where we all should go now, that’s where we all should be
All of Jah Jah children, and all in unity, all in unity.

At the land love, Land of love… Land of love… Land of love…

JAH is the light, shining… around His universal glow
He fills our cup in the morning, to take us where we want to go…

That’s where we all should go now, that’s where we all should be
All of Jah Jah children, and all in unity, all in unity

At the land love, Land of love… Land of love… Land of love…

We want to go to the, Land of love… Land of love… Land of love…
