Allez Les Jaunes!
words & music by jens strohschnieder

2000 K away not too far from the coastline
Is where a little umbrella found its romance
He met a little juicy Breton banana
And asked her out for a ska skankin dance
She said look boy we got the same color
He liked her juicy fruity lovely white flesh
We went together into yellow Valhalla
To bear fruit and to dance and to mash
 
Banana juice boys
Banana juice girls
 
Allez les jaunes! Bonne anniversaire!
The World Is Not Fair
words & music by jens strohschnieder

If there's pressure on you
What to reach what to do
In just one life
Where to aim where to go
What to learn what to know
In just one life
 
See: The world is not fair, the world is not fair to everyone
No, this world is not fair, world is not fair to everyone
 
Where you´re born and your youth
It´s the moment of truth
for your whole life
If you get a good start and you´ve got a good heart
For your whole life
 
See: The world is not fair, the world is not fair to everyone
No, this world is not fair, world is not fair to everyone
 
At the start of our race
We don´t have the same pace
Not the same chances
And it goes on like this
Poor is poor rich is rich
Not the same chances
 
See: The world is not fair, the world is not fair to everyone
No, this world is not fair, world is not fair to everyone
No, this world is not fair, world is not fair to everyone
No, this world is not fair, world is not fair to me
Ma Belle
words & music by jens strohschnieder

I know the world is going crazy
I´m going with it every day
Oh yeah the world is turning round and round and round
And some might say
 
It is no wonder we´re all dizzy
And some are even feeling sick
Oh on this rollercoaster ride through space and time
So fast so quick
 
The only moment worth to mention
Is when you´re in my dimension
This world would be bad without you
Ma belle
 
Man can be each others heaven
Man can be each others hell
Too many men to just ignore and yet too few left to adore
Each others universe is sacred
Each others universe is great
It´s just that I would rather be light years away
In another space
 
The only moment worth to mention
Is when you´re in my dimension
This world would be bad without you
Ma belle
Tempus Fugit
words & music by jens strohschnieder

Another day is here

Another day is gone
I don't know what to do I've got to carry on
 
8 o´clock, the morning coffee tastes disgraceful
Another useless day in weeks, in months, in years
Another day not made to be extremely faithful
I´m caught in daily routine, caught in daily fears
 
Nothing ever changes, nothing is new
It's only time that's running fast
 
Another day is here
Another day is gone
I don't know what to do I've got to carry on
 
10 o´clock the news are announcing more disasters
Of who did something bad to whom and where and when
People are living funny roles of servants and masters
But for all of them the time is running on
 
Nothing ever changes, nothing is new
It's only time that's running fast
 
Another day is here
Another day is gone
I don't know what to do I've got to carry on
Capitalism
words & music by alex buck


You think that you're all alone
Your friends and your money all gone
You don't know where you're heading at
Downpressed by all that  

You come on knocking on my door
Say you don't matter any more
Say you don't know what you're living for
Well, haven't you heard before

Capitalism feeds on individual depression
Exchange your nameless fears for a hopeful expression

Now, don't let that drag you down
Pick yourself up from the ground
You're worth much more than gold
Stand up and take a look around

You come on knocking on my door
Say you don't matter any more
Say you don't know what you're living for
Well, haven't you heard before

Capitalism feeds on individual depression
Exchange your nameless fears for a hopeful expression

Germaican (feat. Dr. Ring Ding)
words by richard a. jung, music by jackie mittoo, coxsone dodd & jens strohschnieder
based on „nimrod“ by the skatalites

F ive days a di week it is german dat me chat
But when the weekend come, I man forget about dat
Mi fling some dancehall music on, turn into a ghetto bway
Becah dat a fe me destination, fe me happiness and joy
 
If I'll never make it to montego - bay
I still have to feed my ego
 
Mumma gimme pocket money, my allowance is done spent
And like any ghetto youth you know mi haffi represent
Like all brethren inna fe mi posse, mi smoke a lot of pot
Cyah when you is dance hall fan ono supposed fi do dat
And di bad marks from di English class dem never bother me
Cyah a pure patois dat me chat now, and me friend dem just agree – seen?
 
If I'll never make it to montego - bay
I still have to feed my ego
 
I man do just everything fi pass fi real jamaican
From mi is a dance hall fan, mi haffi follow fi mi plan
Mi haffi bun battyman and big up di rastaman
Bun out white people dem and party all night long
 
Mi cuss badwuud like a yardie though me never go a yard
Seh dat mi raas claat ghetto life is so bumbo claat hard
48-hour jamaican, and me friend dem agree
I am eighteen years old, and I'm cool as as can be
 
If I'll never make it to montego - bay
I still have to feed my ego
Oh I wanna be jamaican
Oh I try as hard as I can
New Time Warrior
words & music by jens strohschnieder

There seems to be a new philosophy
War without weapons
The missile is economy
The power of wealth
Our new kings and queens they don't show up they're acting hidden
But what does it lead to do you think they know?
 
Why burn the town when you can buy it!!!
 
We know that it's wrong but what to do
Using their method? No!
We don't want to fight it
But time is running up
Our new kings and queens they don't show up they're acting hidden
But what does it lead to do you think they know?
 
Why burn the town when you can buy it!!!
 
Why don't we listen what the wise men say:
“There will be no peace on earth until that day,
We share our wealth and live in brotherhood- Live and let live!”
Why don't we listen what the wise men say:
“There will be no peace on earth until that day,
We share our wealth and live in brotherhood- Live and let live!”
 
Why burn the town when you can buy it!!!
Burn
words & music by jens strohschnieder

You got my fire burning high so high now
And everything you do is right so right now
What can I do but to save my pride now
 
I burn baby burn
I Burn baby burn
 
I close my eyes and feel my body shakin
There is nothing left for giving only takin
I loose control no time for playing or faking
 
I Burn baby burn
I Burn baby burn
 
You got my fire burning high so high now
And everything you do is right so right now
What can I do but to save my pride now
 
I Burn baby burn
I Burn baby burn
I Burn baby burn
I Burn baby burn
 
  Since You've Been Gone words & music by alex buck
  I've got this feeling inside That i can't describe It's a feeling that's been growing For a long, long time For the longest time   When i heard you say That you're not gonna stay I guess i thought it would be ok Some day   But since you've been gone I know i was wrong   I saw you hand in hand With some other men Thought i was lucky now They'd to understand All of your plans   But when i heard you say That you're not gonna stay I guess i thought it would be ok Some day   But since you've been gone I know i was wrong
 
Find My Way
words & music by jens strohschnieder

I thought I got an obligation
To use the nights and seize the days
But now I guess I've been mistaken
 
I can never find my way
 
You know I tried just more than one time
To be myself to change my fate
Just got me closer to my downfall
 
I can never find my way
I can never find my way
 
Right now I'm tired of that same situation
All people are waiting for a change
If we don't overcome this livelong separation
We might as well go on our separated ways
 
I thought I got an obligation
To use the nights and seize the days
But now I guess I've been mistaken
 
I can never find my way
Wanderin' On
words & music by jens strohschnieder

I never thought that life would be like this
When you're as old as me and still be wandering on
You try to keep up to all your crazy dreams
But every day you're loosing one or two
 
We're wandering on
 
There are million dreams so old so new
So what you do is you keep wandering on
Yeah there are million dreams so old so new
So what you do is you keep wandering on
 
We're wandering on
The Lighthouse
words & music by jens strohschnieder

Who lights the fire when all is dark
Who helps you through the day and through the hard
When all this living is much too much
Who is gonna reach you with a mighty touch
 
Where is the fire that will burn on the day of your return
After you've been away for years and you walked through this pool of tears
 
Where do the feelings of hardship come from
Where do you go if you got to go on
When all is far nothing is near
Where do you go right from here?
 
Where is the fire that will burn on the day of your return
After you've been away for years and you walked through this pool of tears
It's So Easy
Baldhead man always look for trouble,
take some weed and you soon be double wise,
ganja treatment for all these stupid right-wings,
stupid facists, yes, they will be cool!

It´s so easy if you

If they are stoned, they let their hair grow "hippie-style",
and their reenes will be quite a little while,
give their pitbulls "extra-ganja-dogfood",
stupid facists, yes, they will be cool!

It´s so easy if you smoke that big one
It´s so easy if you smoke that small one
It´s so easy if you smoke that green one
It´s so easy if you smoke that black one
It´s so easy if you smoke that red one
It´s so easy if you smoke that strong one
and so on and so on

It´s so easy if you smoke that right grass, stupid

Sit And Pray

Ref.:
Some fight and die while we sit and pray
(repeat)

Everyday there's fighting fire with fire
Conflicts rise the flames are burning higher
The human race still violent like in ancient times
Religion race politics and power
Dividing us hour after hour
Into strangers you and me and everyone

I don´t give up hoping and believing
That some day we will all be reaching
That silent dream a united brotherhood of men

You don't judge me by the colour of my skin
Spirit of free mind is about to begin
This whole wide world vibrates in harmony

Greencard
He comes from India, Compu-nomadia,
to live in good old Germany.
For High-Technology, that is why we want him here,
but, oh no, please no refugees.

If you are qualified, you are able to apply.
Welcome to our selected world!
But if you are refugee, endangered or not free,
no stay for you in Germany.

The Greencard-moral is a mighty piece of shit!
Dividing into good and bad,
creating borders just to save our benefit,
to safe our wealth while others die.
The Greencard moral is a lie!

Lay Down
In the morning, when I get out of bed,
there is something I would rather do instead
I wanna lay down by your side,
where everything is gonna be alright

I wanna lay down lay down by your side and feel alright

In the evening when I go to bed,
I wanna lay down my worried head.
I wanna feel you close to me
and hold you tight and "Let it be"

I wanna lay down lay down by your side and feel alright
