VERSE 
1 - 
NAS

Man
 what 
happened 
to 
us?

Geographically 
they 
moved 
us

From
 Africa

We 
was 
once 
happiness
 pursuers

Now
 we 
back
stabbing, 
combative 
and
 abusive

The
 African
 and 
Arab 
go 
at 
it 
they 
most 
Muslim

Used
 to 
be
 moving 
in 
unison

Disputes
 would 
end

Bounty 
Hunters 
and
 Grape 
Street 
get 
cool 
again

Some
 standard 
housing

Got 
the 
young 
running 
rampant

Wilding, 
for 
a 
Phantom

He
 can 
style 
in

Mask 
on 
his 
face

Grabbing
 his 
Luger

Saying,
“nobody 
move 
or
 I’ll
 shoot 
ya”

Man
 you’re 
expiring

Catch
 25 
and 
he 
does 
it 
like 
a 
man

He
 sides 
with 
Black,


White 
Pride 
and 
Mexican

Survive
 the
 best 
he 
can

Strap
 a
 shank 
to 
his 
thigh

Why 
do 
we
 all 
collide?

Why 
do 
the
 young 
die?

Extortion,
 murder 
and 
burglary

Tattoos 
his
 chest

Says
 his 
“Enemies 
Don’t
 Deserve 
To 
Breath”



CHORUS

So

Timeless

Mindless

Well 
let

 try

Here’s 
the 
5 
steps


 In 
hopes 
to 
explain

One!

Its

and 
my

Two!

Then

Then

Four!

Then
 me 
and 
my

we 
no 
hesitation

Uh!

Go
 against
 the 
Fam’ 
until 
they
 cave 
in

Five!

Now 
who’s 
left 
in 
this 
deadly 
equation?

That’s
 right, 
it’s 
me 
against 
my 
brother

Then

Kalashnikov

And

3. Strong Will Continue

Strong Will Continue

INTRO - NAS:
All I do is stay focused
Looking straight forward at the world... and beyond
I feel people pulling me down
I feel some people pulling me up
I can't get stuck
I just keep moving forward
I got places to go Man... Let's go

CHORUS 1 - JR GONG:
When the Armageddon start get dread
A lot of weak heart a weep and moan
Only the strong will continue
Do you have it in you?
Cause we've got a journey to go!
And when the battle get sour and dread
A lot of weak hear a wither and moan
Only the strong will continue
I know you have it in you
I know you have it in you

JR GONG 1st VERSE:
The Victory is found in Truth
Like Innocence found in Youth
Self-defeat is your own dispute
And when you put yourself
Inna your own shoes
It's
Either you're winning or loosing
Don't you get it confused
Cause you're starring inna your own movie
Playing out the role you choose
So
Stand up and f!ght
If you know say you right
No, you will never fail
And the wind shall prevail
And the boat shall forever sail
Hey
There ain't no stopping or cruising
Even when we're batter and bruised
Out run all the sprinters
On Mount Olympus
My God tougher than Zeus!

CHORUS 2 - JR GONG:
When the Armageddon start get dread
A lot of weak heart a weep and moan
Only the strong will continue
Do you have it in you?
Cause we've got a journey to go!
And when the battle get sour and dread
A lot of weak heart a wither and moan
Only the strong will continue
I know you have it in you
I know you have it in you

NAS VERSE:
As I would through the valley of the shadow of death
New York to Cali, for the money power respect
It's a journey, some will get left behind
'cause in life you can not press rewind
Get it right, you only have one first chance
To make one first impression that lasts a lifetime
Reputation supersede itself, do you believe in hell?
Babylon greed for wealth
Do you deceive yourself and let your ego go swell?
And disregard those who most need your help!
Thick skin, the dark won't take my soul
Survive spiritual wars, see my welts
And the evil's felt but the faith is stronger
I saw grown men fall when I was a youngster
But I clenched my fists, ready to go against whoever
Tied my Tims and rise in the end

CHORUS 3 - JR GONG:
When the Armageddon start get dread
A lot of weak heart a weep and moan
Only the strong will continue
Do you have it in you?
Cause we've got a journey to go!
And when the battle get sour and dread
A lot of weak heart a wither and moan
Only the strong will continue
I know you have it in you
I know you have it in you

JR GONG 2nd VERSE:
No man live forever
But never say never
every 'goody' want better
Just be a go getter
And always be clever
In every endeavor
Cause drastic times call for drastic measure
your birthright to pleasure,
From your navel string sever
the land and the treasure,
Work for whatever
Jah say don't be a begger
The Alfa Omega
Who bless ever soul
No matter which name you prefer
The Immortal Stepper
Who lives in ever skin
No matter, which color leather
Would never let me down
No care which kind of weather
You're destined to rise
Like the son of Rebecca
Don't stop for a second
Every man recon
It sure would be good
To be there
Whether Zion or Mecca
When the gates are finally closed
And the Saints go marching in

CHORUS 4 - JR GONG:
When the Armageddon start get dread
Only the strong will continue
Do you have it in you?
Cause we've got a journey to go!
And when the battle get sour and dread
A lot of weak heart a wither and moan
Only the strong will continue
I know you have it in you
I know you have it in you

By

Infectious

Charisma

The

Resistance

Protestors

Only

the

The

The

The

the

The

we 
took 
for 
sinning

On 
Esau’s 
back 
inscription

That 
it

That 
nothing

They

6. COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS


CHORUS 1 – JR GONG:
And I’ve got studios to voice in
And I’ve got news for rejoicing
Now a new sun is rising
I count my blessings

That I’m safe when I’m resting
Furniture in my nesting
Not by force
I’m suggesting
You count your blessings

I’ve got love and a.ssurance
I’ve got new heath insurance
I’ve got strength and endurance
So I count my blessings

And give thanks to the master
That through all the disaster
We’re still here
Together after
Better count your blessings

VERSE 1 – NAS:
Count your blessings
Cause yo’
This year
Can’t wait ‘till he gets here
7/21/09
My first son will shine
And it’s amazing
I’m about to be raising
Another made man
And like his dad
They’ll praise him
And some will hate him
Just cause we’re building a nation
Like Bob did with Damian
The world will embrace him
Girls will chase him
Foresee they will not break him
And when I’m not around
You look for God
And thank him

CHORUS 2 – JR GONG:
And I’ve got somewhere to dress for
And I’ve got no need to stress for
And so I’ll always put my best forth
And count my blessings

And there’ll be no need for tissues
Cause there’ll be no further issues
If you’ve got someone who miss you
Man count your blessings

And I’ve got love and a.ssurance
And I’ve got new heath insurance
And I’ve got strength and endurance
So I count my blessings

And give thanks to the master
That through all the disaster
We’re still here
Together after
Better count your blessings

VERSE 2 – NAS:
You’re wishing
You were sitting
In the top position
Picture perfect
Nothing less cause you deserve it
Without the Hermes
You never hurting
You knew that you was
Destined for greatness
For certain
But see the over zealous
They be thirsting
Caught up in emotion
You’re keeping your composure
Like Gershwin
Songs by Earth, Wind
Keep you in a zone
Writing verses
So when your pocket’s light
Know that you have a heavy purpose

CHORUS 3 – JR GONG:
We’ve got pre-school and day care
We’ve got pension and well-fare
And though not all will play the game fair
Still I count my blessings

I’ve got joy in abundance
I’ve got life full of substance
I’ve got meetings and functions
So I count my blessings

I’ve got something to live for
I’ve got surplus to give more
And we’re all welcome through his door
So I count my blessings

And give thanks to the master
That through all the disaster
We’re still here
Together after
So I count your blessings

VERSE 3 – NAS:
I think you’re looking too hard for it
Want the double R
Under your garage door
Appreciate the things you work hard for
And count your blessing
Count your blessings
So don’t be mad if you ain’t fly ya’ll
You got the means
To reach the level I’m on
You should know that there’s only one Nas
Ya’ll
But count your blessing
Count your blessing
Ra!

CHORUS 4 – JR GONG:
And I’ve got studios to voice in
And I’ve got news for rejoicing
Now a new son is rising
I count my blessings

That I’m safe when I’m resting
Furniture in my nesting
Not by force
I’m suggesting
You count your blessings

I’ve got love and a.ssurance
I’ve got new heath insurance
I’ve got strength and endurance
So I count my blessings

And give thanks to the master
That through all the disaster
We’re still here
Together after
Better count your blessings

A pure plane take off
Bush Gardens inna Mali
Chicago inna Chad

Promised Land I picture Porsches

Pinky Rings realistic princesses
Heiresses bunch a Kings and Queens
Plus I picture fortunes for kids out in Port-Au-Prince
Powerless they not allowed to fit
But not about to slip
Vision Promised Land with fashion like
Madison Ave Manhattan
Saks 5th Ave and
Rodeo
Relaxing popping labels
Promise Land no fables
This where the truth's told
Use them two holes
Above your nose
To see the proof yo!
Imagine a contraption that could take us back when
The world was run by black men
Back to the future
Anything can happen
If these are the last days
And 100-food waves come crashing down
I get some hash and pounds
Pass around the bud then watch the flood
Can't stop apocalypse
My synopsis is catastrophic
If satellites is causing earthquakes
Will we survive it
Honestly man it's the sign of the times
And the times at hand

JAH TOLD YOU

“AND I’LL SEE YOU THROUGH”

VERSE 1 NAS
Two steps away from death
A vest and a holster
I detest detectives arresting us over
Weapons possession
They was checking the Rover
Inspecting the Tattoos
On my neck and my shoulder
How many times I’m one of six
Coffin holders
Or I’m
Sitting with goons in the visiting rooms
Flip it I could have been you
Behind state walls biddin’
These are the things that a G pray for
Acquit us
A little stash in the safe or
Little Shorty to wait for him
Or a Shorty to take the weight for him
What really did I escape from?
Thought I saw Gods face
On the design in my vintage Claiborne
Swear I see Him every day ya’ll
In a bus or the train or
The billboards out there that hang tall
I still give thanks for Him
Have faith for Him
No matter what His name’s called.
Seen!

VERSE 2 JR. GONG
Can you think of a color that you never seen?
Can you reminisce on places you never been?
Well is many are called
But them never deemed
Worthy for the cause
Cause them never clean
Help who help themselves
Jah nuh raffle dream
That’s why me chummy with Jah Jah
Like a Cherubim
Keep we strong through the winter
Like an Evergreen
And all of us are more connected
Than it ever seemed
All things are related
And creation is a package
Generate together
And we increase the wattage
A how them a go manage?
Tell Babylon them can’t do Rasta damage
Nor stop we through the passage
Jah did make a promise
God is always honest
Always keeps his word
Yow nuh care what the plan is
Don’t be astonished
Stumbling bocks vanish
One day the meek gonna live inna di palace, Woah!

VERSE 3 NAS
Some ask me if I feel
That Zion is surreal
And in my songs
Do I plan to expose and reveal
Word to the curb
That’s under these chrome wheels
My homies is the only ones I'm taking care of
But severe reality starts to become more clear
And these know-it-all rappers
Have become more weird
As if they were superior
And fans are inferior
How I balance between the streets and the theories of
Collegiate literature
I hold mirrors up
Give combinations of pain, joy, fear and love
Through my perspective
I can see Jah reflection
In the highest definition
Getting high with my bredrin
Then I ask him why is Africans dying from circumcision
They lack proper surgeons and suffer malnutrition
Underestimate the wealth of their own wisdom
Its like its been exchanged for this penicillin
Seen

Patience

HOOK (Sample: MAMADOU & MARIAM, "SABALI")

VERSE 1 - JR. GONG
Some of the smartest dummies
Can't read the language of Egyptian Mummies
An' a fly go a Moon
And can't find food for the starving tummies
Pay no mind to the Youths
Cause it's not like the future depends on it
But save the Animals in the Zoo
Cause the Chimpanzee dem a make big money
This is how the media pillages
On the TV the picture is
Savages in villages
And the scientist still can't explain the pyramids (huh)
Evangelists making a living on the videos of ribs of the little kids
Stereotyping the image of the images
And this is what the image is...
You buy a khaki pants
And all of a sudden you say a Indiana Jones
An' a thief out gold and thief out the scrolls and even the buried bones
Some of the worst paparazzis I've ever seen and I ever known
Put the worst on display so the world can see
And that's all they will ever show
So the ones in the West
Will never move east
And feel like they could be at home
Dem get tricked by the beast
But a where dem ago flee when the monster is fully-grown?
Solomonic linage whe dem still can't defeat and them coulda never clone
My spiritual DNA that print in my sould and I will forever OWN (Lord).

HOOK (Sample: MAMADOU & MARIAM, "SABALI")

VERSE 2 - JR. GONG
(Huh) Are we born not knowing, are we born knowing all?
Are we growing wiser, are we just growing tall?
Can you read thoughts? Can you read palms?
Can you predict the future? Can you see storms... coming?
The Earth was flat if you went too far you would fall off
Now the Earth is round if the shape change again everybody woulda start laugh
The average man can't prove of most of the things that he chooses to speak of
And still won't research and find out the root of the truth that you seek of
Scholars teach in Universities and claim that they're smart and cunning
Tell them find a cure when we sneeze and that's when their nose start running
And the rich get stitched up, when we get cut
Man a heal dem broken bones in the bush with the wed mud
Can you read Signs? Can you read Stars?
Can you make peace? Can you f!ght war?
Can you milk cows, even though you drive cars? (Huh)
Can you survive, AGAINST ALL ODDS...Now?

HOOK (Sample: MAMADOU & MARIAM, "SABALI")

VERSE 3 - NAS
Who wrote the Bible? Who wrote the Koran?
And was it a lightning storm
That gave birth to the earth
And then dinosaurs were born?
Who made up words? Who made up Numbers?
And what kind of spell is mankind under?
Everything on the planet we preserve and can it
Microwave it and try it.
No matter what we'll survive it.
What's Hue? What's Man? What's Human?
Anything along the land we consumin'.
Eatin', deletin'... ruin.
Trying to get paper.
Gotta have land, gotta have acres
So I can sit back like Jack Nicholson
Watch n*ggaz play the game like the Lakers
In a world full of fifty-two fakers,
Gypsies, seances, mystical prayers...
You superstitious? Throw salt over your shoulders
Make a wish for the day 'Cuz
Like somebody got a doll of me
Stickin' needles in my arteries
But I can't feel it
Sometimes it's like "pardon me, but I got a real big spirit".
I'm fearless... I'm fearless
Don't you try and grab hold of my soul
It's like a military soldier since seven years old
I held real dead bodies in my arms
Felt their body turn cold (Oh)
Why we born in the first place...
If this is how we gotta go?
Damn.

12. My Generation

MY GENERATION
DISTANT RELATIVES
Featuring Lil Wayne and Joss Stone

CHORUS
My Generation will make a change
This Generation will make a change
My Generation will make a change
This Generation will make a change

VERSE 1 JR GONG
Now mi love fi see the schoolas dem a graduate
A study hard and save the party for the holidays
Diplomatic with dem Diploma
And them bound fi great
Because dem nah pick up no matic and a perpetrate
And then I love the energies whe dem a generate
My Generation it so special it will make a change
Because the elders sew the seed and it a germinate
So anytime dem see the progress dem a celebrate
Because we rising up despite of the economy
And then a we a star the show like the astronomy
And how we keep on breaking through is an anomaly
Because we keep remaining true without apology
The mission ha to carry through and finish properly
Say Gambia to Guadeloupe Paris to Napoli
Say Zambia to Honolulu back to Tripoli
And everybody want a future living happily

CHORUS
My Generation will make a change
This Generation will make a change
My Generation will make a change
This Generation will make a change

VERSE 2 NAS
Can you blame my generation
Subjected gentrification
Depicting they’re frustrations
Over ill instrumentation
Cause music is the way to convey to you what I’m facing
Placing my life in-front of your eye for your observation
Now if you can’t relate then maybe you are too complacent
Athletes today are scared to make Mohammad Ali statements
What’s up with tomorrow?
Will you lead will you follow?
Improve you values
Education is real power
I reach ‘em like Bono
So get rid of your self-sorrow
Add some bravado
Get wealthy like Wells Fargo
It’s true that I am you
And I am proof
Surviving through
We do what we got to do
Yow we can break the cycle
Let nobody lie to you
Then maybe put our sons and our daughters in private school
Cause there’s a mission we gotta finish before we leave
This generation is destined to do historic deeds

CHORUS
My Generation will make a change
This Generation will make a change
My Generation will make a change
This Generation will make a change

VERSE 3 LITTLE WAYNE
If you weather that storm
Then that Rain bring Sun
Been a long time coming
I know change go’ come
Man I gotta keep it moving
To the beat of my drum
Last night I set the future
At the feet of my son
But they thinking that my Generation
Gotta die young
If we all come together
Then they can’t divide one
Don’t worry ‘bout it
Just be about it
Got a message from God
Heaven too crowded
But I say
Hey Young World!
You never looked better
And I heard change start
With the man in the mirror
Uh!
This Generation
I’m a represent
A generation led by a Black President
Now how’s that for change?
Who knew that could change?
I don’t even look at the flag the same
Heak, Uh!
So when you finish reading Revelations
Thank God for my Generation

13. Africa Must Wake Up (ft. K'naan)

AFRICA MUST WAKE UP
DISTANT RELATIVES
Featuring K’Naan

JR.GONG INTRO
Morning to you Man,
Morning to you Love…
Hey
I say
I said

JR. GONG CHORUS 1
Africa must wake up
The sleeping sons of Jacob
For what tomorrow may bring…
May a better day come
Yesterday we were Kings
Can you tell the young ones
Who are we today?
Yeah now,
Well Africa must wake up
You sleeping sons of Jacob
For what tomorrow may bring…
May a better day come
Yesterday we were Kings
Can you tell the young ones
Who are we today?
Yeah now…

NAS VERSE 1
The Black Oasis
Ancient, Africa the sacred
Awaken
The sleeping giant
Science, Art is your creation
I dreamt that we could visit Old Kemet
Your history is too complex and rigid
For some western critics
They want the whole subject diminished
But Africa’s the origin of all the world’s religions
We praise bridges that carried us over
The battlefronts of Sudanic soldiers
The task put before us

JR. GONG CHORUS 2
You hear me out
Africa must wake up
You sleeping sons of Jacob
For what tomorrow may bring…
May a better day come
Yesterday we were Kings
Can you tell the young ones
Who are we today?
Yeah now,
Well Africa must wake up
The sleeping sons of Jacob
For what tomorrow may bring…
May a better day come
Yesterday we were Kings
Can you tell the young ones
Who are we today?
Yeah now…

NAS VERSE 2
Who are we today?
The slums, deceases, AIDS
We need that all to fade
We cannot be afraid
So who are we today?
We are the morning after
The make shift youth
The slave ship captured
Our Diaspora
Is the final chapter
The ancestral lineage
Built pyramids
America’s first emigrant
The King’s son and daughters
From Nile waters
The first architect
The first philosophers
Astronomers
The first prophets and the doctors
Was us

JR GONG BRIDGE
Now can we all pray
Each in his own way
Teaching and learning
And we can work it out
We’ll have a warm bed
We’ll have some warm bread
And shelter from the storm Dread
And we can work it out
Mother Nature feeds all
In famine and drought
Tell those selfish in ways
Not to share us out
What’s a tree without root
Lion without tooth
A lie without truth
You hear me out

JR. GONG CHORUS 3
Africa must wake up
You sleeping sons of Jacob
For what tomorrow may bring…
May a better day come
Yesterday we were Kings
Can you tell the young ones
Who are we today?
Yeah lord,
Well Africa must wake up
You sleeping sons of Jacob
For what tomorrow may bring…
May some more love come
Yesterday we were Kings
I tell you young blood
This world is yours today

K’NANN

(Somali)
Dadyahow daali waayey, nabada diideen,
oo ninkii doortay diinta, waadinka dillee,
oo dal markii ladhiso, waadinka dunshee,
oo daacad ninkii damcay, waadinka dooxee. 

(Translation)
Oh ye people, restless in the refusal of peace,
and when a man chooses religion, aren't you the ones to k!ll him?
And when a country is built, aren't you the ones to tear it down?
And when one attempts to tell the truth, aren't you the ones to cut him down?

JR. GONG CHORUS 4
I say
Well Africa must wake up
The sleeping sons of Jacob
For what tomorrow may bring…
May a better day come
Yesterday we were Kings
Can you tell the young ones
Who are we today?
Yeah now,
Well Africa must wake up
The sleeping sons of Jacob
For what tomorrow may bring…
May a better day come
Yesterday we were Kings
Can you tell the young ones
Who are we today?
Who are we today?

Morning to you
Morning to you Man
Morning to you Love…
