Mr. Logical Paula Bu www.facebook.com/paula.b.aragon Author: Paula Buigues Aragón / Carlos Alonso Arana / Santiago Mijarra Rodríguez Music: Bass Culture Players Why do you always let your mind defeat your heart? You show that cold mask of yours, put everything else apart Come on Mr. Logical, don’t be so psychological Why do you try to make the world believe that you don’t mind? But now you’re gone Nothing will be the same again I hope you think you’re happy Always the same stupid work hiding anything you’re feeling Why don’t you just relax and listen to your heart beating? Enjoy the present of sharing with someone you love that we’re still breathing Don’t be scared, Mr. Logical, cause love is the one thing Why do you always let your mind defeat your heart? You show that cold mask of yours, put everything else apart Come on Mr. Logical, don’t be so psychological Why do you try to make the world believe that you don’t mind? But now you’re gone Nothing will be the same again I hope you think you’re happy Always the same stupid work hiding anything you’re feeling Why don’t you just relax and listen to your heart beating? Enjoy the present of sharing with someone you love that we’re still breathing Don’t be scared, Mr. Logical, cause love is the one thing

Build An Ark Mighty Mike www.blueskank.com Author: Miguel Valenciano López / Santiago Mijarra Rodríguez Music: Bass Culture Players Some want to build an ark but we are not supposed to be on board Any Lord is supposed to love us all Every wall s right about to fall and if it´s not we fight them all Don´t play God Archaic moods, obsolete rules Such heritage comes to the bound if you leave no open gates There will be no mixed fates We already know they don´t share no good We already know they don´t share no shelter Wisdom is the tool we´ll use to prove we depend no more on them but on us self respectness Too late, it is not. Shall we play this game or take a different guideline back to the start Too late, it is not. Prosperity will not be brought by them device. Some want to build an ark but we are not supposed to be on board Any Lord is supposed to love us all Every wall s right about to fall and if it´s not we fight them all Don´t play God It´s not too late. Don´t play God You are the new kid on the block. You can´t give I what you ain´t got. So keep talking as you talk Go on, creep to the top. It is rude. Fed up with them who share no good. Roots music´s what we know to shoot. Do some good to you: love your brother, so your brother loves you too. Some want to build an ark but nobody can go so far. We rode alone a long way not to become your lab. Who said it´s too late goes not far enough. Get out the way or join the flow, them a gonna bow, gonna bow. It´s not too late, don´t play God...

Good In This World Emeterians www.facebook.com/Emeterians Author: Felipe Martins Soares, Maria Martíns, Ignacio Carbó Blasco / Carlos Alonso Arana / Santiago Mijarra Rodríguez Music: Bass Culture Players There's still good in dis world Jah know One day we were walking inna London town Not the kind of city where the crime rate's down We trodding inna Brixton, man come from behind Maybe packing pistol, But what's on his mind? So we were expecting some rum, pum, pum So we gettin ready fe di run, run, run But what a surprise, Looks are deceiving He just wanted help, A sister was bleeding Looks are deceiving x2 We deh pon di Broadway And we de pon di Ras Sudden connection A Friendship that last Jammin in da studio Future, present and past Teachings from di Most High Him a transmit and pass Listen to His Rastaman chant Baba Rastaman chant now.. There's still good in this world Jah know We deh pon di city And we deh pon di clash Soundsystem culture Inna dubwise, no rush Musical expression, Expecting no aggression, Something draws our attention And a riot affi start And everyone is starting to flee, thinking "good, it wasn't me" Blood drops a dropping in pairs But no one seemed to care Here what I say now x2 Till a woman came and stood Inna middle of the scene Look dem straight in di eye Nah seh nothing, just a cry All di riot and di tension All di misscomprehension All di mass confusion Soon came to an end So she touched dem with her likkle bare hands, and some of these foes, became friends No matter where u travel around, good people can always be found, Cuz there's still good In this world Jah know
