Track Name: Wakarimaska - Live at Radio France
Wakarimaska
what exactly don't you get?
we throw bombs freely and freedom is just an excuse
we throw nets to catch the eye of the innocent TV watchers
we give you readymade dreams
so you don't work so hard at making yours come true
isn't that wonderful?
but I have a weird feeling of helplessness mixed with fear
of this degrading world losing its temper
and while I lose my head, fundamentally ill leaders tread
in historical schemes of schism

(But you know complacency deadens the soul
but do hear the cries from the world and under
can we listen though, can we most importantly
respond and attend to those who need it most
to those who need it most)

Who will lead us against the wicked witches of the west
who will terrorize the official authorities of terrorism
who will finally have the courage and strength to fight back
however you can, fight back!

Caus' our children will blame us for being shameless
will blame us for promoting ignorance
will blame us for blaming other people and never taking a stand
and what will we stand for then?
Track Name: Scholarship - Live at Radio France
You coulda had anything that you wanted
you coulda been sitting on top of the world
but now you seem like you're haunted
and I shoulda left you when I could

It's so hard to keep on smiling
you never even really share that much
so hard to keep believin'
that you really appreciate my touch

CHORUS :
WHAT-YOU'RE TAKING IS TOO PRECIOUS TO NAME
IT'S ALWAYS THE SAME-WHY ON EARTH CAN'T YOU SEE x 2

Iou say you can't trust anybody
but tell me have you ever tried
and slowly, slowly
I think I'm coming out of confusion love made me feel x2
I find out a little more each day, what you call love just can't be real
everytime you call my name I feel I have this kind of pain

CHORUS AD LIB
Track Name: OJ - Live at Radio France
GOTTA RUN GOTTA RUN GOTTA RUN

Spinnin’ out the OJ
Precious vitamins can’t get los
Gotta work that twist now
& twist & twist & twist it some more
Gotta be carefull not to spill a drop on the floor
And crush that flesh, leave nothing behind
No wasting – I keep chasing that orange rind
I keep chasing that orange rind x3

CHORUS :
BEEN SQUEEZIN HARD & FEELING GOOD
GOT ALL THE JUICE OUT BEST I COULD
DRINK UP DRINK UP, IT’S FREE IT’S FRESH
THE BEST DAMN OJ TO THE TEST

GOTTA RUN GOTTA RUN GOTTA RUN

Took such care of them fruits
More precious than a loot
That when I finally had to cut through
The juicy flesh of these chosen few
I crush with no delay
I twist and twist their fate
Let the juice flow like drops of sun x2
Like a new day has just begun

GOTTA RUN GOTA RUN GOTTA RUN
LIKE A NEW DAY HAS BEGUN

CHORUS :
BEEN SQUEEZIN HARD & FEELING GOOD
GOT ALL THE JUICE OUT BEST I COULD
DRINK UP DRINK UP, IT’S FREE IT’S FRESH
THE BEST DAMN OJ TO THE TEST X 2

GOTTA RUN GOTTA RUN GOTTA RUN (AD LIB)
Track Name: 1,2,3 - Live at Radio France
Youth is a strange matter, some have it all their lives
While others seem to have never been touched by it's grace
Uncompromising defiance towards everything
Boundless optimism in the face of reality
Violently happy, desperately lost and so easily angry

CHORUS :
HARD TO HEAR THE BEAT THUMPIN ANY MORE
PASSION DIES WITH ACCEPTANCE OF LESS THAN GREAT
AND YOU START TO FIT IT NOT COMPLETELY

LIKE A STUPID SHADE OF GRAY X4

And then this new sense of responsibility
And the fear of the future makes it all turn to gray
Not disappeared but so tamed

CHORUS :
HARD TO HEAR THE BEAT THUMPIN ANY MORE
PASSION DIES WITH ACCEPTANCE OF LESS THAN GREAT
AND YOU START TO FIT IT NOT COMPLETELY

LIKE A STUPID SHADE OF GRAY X4
Track Name: Huff 'n Puff - Live at Radio France
I am sam, sam I am
do you like green eggs and ham
I don't eat ham, sam it tastes like man
wake up and smell the hot sham, damn
there's no control, the roles are shown
but the rules are not, if you miss the point
can't connect the dots
well here's your shot, duck quick or rot
heck it's a trauma, collective coma,
slow down with a comma,
break your neck sneakin’ in the sauna
patience queenie virtue is a lesson to learn
now be a good kid and don't miss your turn

CHORUS:
HUFF AND PUFF YES THEY’RE GONNA COME DOWN
THE UNIVERSAL BULLSHITTERS GONNA COME DOWN
ALL YOU YOUNGSTERS WHO WEARIN’ A FROWN
NO WORRIES YES WE’RE GONNA COME AROUND

i double the scores and i double the rhymes
caus i double the times and i double the tongues
i double the sting-ing ka-ching bling
whatever you sing i come and sing it better
the flow on toast, like butter, slice the cheddar,
heada, you know you're sore
but i keep on hittin
want mo' bleach ho ha, i saw you comin'

BRIDGE:
PITY WE DON’T NEED
LISTEN TO LYRICAL WEED
AND THE BEATS LIKE SPEED
KEEPS THE COMPETITION CLEAR

CHORUS:
HUFF AND PUFF YES THEY’RE GONNA COME DOWN
THE UNIVERSAL BULLSHITTERS GONNA COME DOWN
ALL YOU YOUNGSTERS WHO WEARIN’ A FROWN
NO WORRIES YES WE’RE GONNA COME AROUND

BRIDGE:
PITY WE DON’T NEED
LISTEN TO LYRICAL WEED
AND THE BEATS LIKE SPEED
KEEPS THE COMPETITION CLEAR
