Track Name: Peaceful Warriors
We are the Peaceful Warriors,
standing on the front line,
standing on the front line,
We are the Peaceful Warriors,
standing on the front line,
standing on the front line,

Only the warrior will act,
only the fool will react,
just keep it in your mind,
just keep it in your mind,
tell me who’s gonna pay,
tell me who’s gonna pay,
tell me who’s gonna stop us the way,
nothing can stop us now,
nothing can stop us now no,

I am a warrior,
but no guns I use,
I&I fight my own war,
with the lyrics I&I choose,
you soldier,
are let by the ones who abuse,
keeping us all confused,
through tv & the news,
be a warrior,
& only fight fi di truth,
lead the way fi di youth,
who got everything to loose,
soldier,
No be no bloody fool,
think about what you do,
& with what you shoot!

So lead a new way,
ca the chance is one,
do not take the wicked way,
choose peace and bring faith
light the faya in the heart
revolution must take place
be free as a bird,
lets rund pon the street to show we’re still alive,
be the seed for a change,
the remedy to survive is the love don’t be blind
Track Name: One Day
Ormai basta farsi un tiro,
e il mondo gira come panni in tintoria;
basta farsi un giro, per caprie quanto finto sia,
mi hanno spinto via dalla folla,
Sodoma e Gomorra,
tutto crolla e forma l'armonia
trasforma in sinfonia,
ogni pensiero che mi porto apresso,
attratto dall'accesso presso ogni
fiore rimasto dentro questo fior di loto,
fuoco, aqua, terra, aria,
brucio erba Kaya,
ormai la vita resta solo
un altra amica immaginaria ma,

One day or another,
we will rise up as sisters & brothers,
we have to love each other,
we will rise up,
one day or another

Se ti parlassi di quello in cui
credo non mi crederesti,
é come se guidassi il mio ego
coi comandi mano messi,
prima che ti chiedano interessi,
sappi che ti fregano.
alla fine gli oggetti che possiedi
ti possiedono,
e ci mentono guardandoci negli occhi,
perché qua finche un problema
non ti tocca tene fotti,
ma in un mondo dove muore un bambino ogni 20 secondi,
secondo te quand'è che avremo
la nostra resa dei conti?

The youth of today shall rise again,
free up your way & rise again yo,
live up yourself & smile again,
far away from the wicked man dem!

Look you are somebody,
so try to do your best,
you're not just anybody,
but not better than the rest,
you are part of your own future,
so don't think about it twice,
& care about mother nature,
ca our nature slowly dies,
every little helps,
so stand up & do your thing,
think about it well,
ca the time runs out & than,
there will be no more life,
so try to make a plan,
& one day or another
we all will rise again!

e dimmi che,
approvi il messaggio
che mando quando canto,
e dimmi che,
non parlo a vuoto
e il colloquio con te lo stai ascoltando,
qui sembra che,
nel mondo la gente pretende
che mentre ci trattano come le merde,
noi continuiamo a fare finta di niente,
convinti di questo da sempre,
ma qui sta lo sbaglio,
mi sbaglio?
"io credo di no!",
"lo so!",
e se ti trovi d'accordo con me,
adesso fammi sentire un uo-ohhhh,
"uo-ohhhhhh",
di chili di merda ne ho,
mangiati fin troppi,
ma ne ho dati pochi,
e sono caduto però,
mi sono rialzato come un fenice
dalle mie ceneri in fretta e
mentre mi guardi tieniti a debita
distanza di sicurezza che,
mentre rigenero il corpo e la mente
non porto rancore ma serbo tristezza,
se penso che un'altro
qualunque al mio posto
farebbe di tutto per una vendetta.
Track Name: Be Wise
I just wanna bring the truth
and fear nothing, nothing
find myself go back to the roots,
teach to the youth
to believe something new,
while the system is laughing at you
and music is like food,
so eat something, something,
do not starve your soul,
you're worth more than gold,
fight for it before it be sold,

We need to be wise, wise, wise
like the eldest trees,
bring the memories,
like the water and the breeze,
wise, wise, wise
like the eldest trees
Track Name: The Kingdom of Music
Say music in life is the greatest thing,
my light & my guide until I die I sing,
I choose to write about what I am feeling,
while I walk on my way I do music and bring,
love & hope but not to pull the string,
I share my thoughts just like Martin Luther King,
Lets do music not war, a new beginning,
fi this insane globe, do you fell what I mean,
music is dope lets break down da sealing,
it makes this world a lot more appealing,
many fools have tried to abuse it but,
music is stronger than anything,
it makes me shine, it is the healing,
it saves lives from Usaka up to Berlin,
while gal whine, until da morning,
we nah need no politics ca music is the King!

Let the kingdom a come,
Let the kingdom a come alive.
Let the kingdom a come,
Let the kingdom a come alive.

so please find in yourself the strength,
is not gonna be easy but this is our chance
give a smile to the people who deserve it
ang light will shine thought the cloud and make all clear

so we are stepping stepping on this ground how seems so empty
but i will keep on searching , i will find my way to be, a way to be

so we are rolling rolling pom the field of a new land
the grass will grow high grow high
we gonna find the promise land

so will climb the mountain of consciousness i will see my spirit from the higher top
me nah gonna loose with word of evilness i´m gonna spread just words of love
Track Name: New Dawn
Seguendo la ritmica che fa la band,
portiamo la creme de la creme,
Shanti famiglia,
viaggia per miglia,
dalla torre eiffel,
a Londra al big bang,
Giappone e Yemen,
ci pagano in Yen,
in dollari dallo Zio Sam,
ma ció che ripaga l´artista non é la moneta fanculo al tuo re,
lo vedi da te,
che quello che faccio,
non é per profitto,
ma é solo per darvi un assaggio,
di quello che ho scritto,
negli anni passati standomene zitto,
e lo vedo da me,
se quello che dico ti lascia perplesso,
so giá che hai gia messo,
da parte il conflitto,
e ti sei dichiarato sconfitto,
ma senza saperne il perché

No matter what we will do it our way,
we neva stop man we came here to stay,
whateva you thought we could not do today,
we do it now, we got no time to waste,
get lost in this Riddim, lay back & be amazed,
whateva you thought has been killing ya,
let it leave time & space,
we are ready to make a difference,
with the music we play,
a family on stage, we deliver change to this game!

And its a new dawn,
and its a new dawn for us all,
& its a new dawn,
and its a new dawn for us all,
The clouds are opening over the horizon,
a wise voice is telling me to open up my soul.
The sunshine is breaking through the waves of the ocean,
this moment teaches me life is only a magic metaphor.
Playing music, writing poetry in peace harmony
remembers me every day what i´m still fighting for

keep your eyes on your goal

It´hot outside, my face is burning,
i loose my self with all my senses,
sometimes i feel like i´m out of space
and i race with the sun until it goes away
and yeyyy yes i loose my self again
deep down in my soul digging trough my counsciousness
and just above a tree i can see the world is changing
a bird is singing free while my cat is trying to catch him.
Track Name: Warning
We’re getting lost in confusion,
oh man its all an illusion,
you gotta set your own trend ye ye,
start your own revolution,
do always follow the truth man,
ca this globe is made out of lies,
& do remember your root man,
to many leave their own blood behind,
so spread your wings & fly out in this world,
you got a mind so use it for the good,
don’t loose your sight ca dem want to distract you,
so don’t be blind and be an impact to this globe,
to many loose their lives in the system,
to many fool their mind by material,
so they get left behind as a victim,
we need to wake up dem, ca dem nah see it all!

This is a warning,
it a global warning,

People die on battlefields,
all ova the globe,
they make random decisions,
killing in the name of god,
but for us life is a blessing,
judging hating is a curse,
I don’t wan’t to have to do,
with your wars no more,
I feel like a droplet falling to the sea,
I tell dem I will not retreat,
I will stand on my feet,
man this is guaranteed,
I will speak without fear loud and clear,

Warning Warning
It a global Warning Warning

vivo tra cime innevate,
che anche d´estate,
qui sembra l´inverno,
d´inverno,
c´é il sole che splende,
a dicembre,
e i turisti che vengono,
tengono,
il traffico fermo,
va tutto all´inverso,
nel verso sbagliato,
oppure sono io che vado al contrario da quando sono nato,
non ho mai voluto attenzioni,
ho sempre dato solo spiegazioni,
ora non mi sente nessuno sono chiuso fuori,
ma non in un campo di fiori,
é un campo minato,
contaminato,
dal lato,
piú oscuro del genere umano,
e io lo percorro,
andata e ritorno,
scoprendo cosí come siamo.
Track Name: Live up
The limit has been passed
in this wonderful world,
the time’s gone by fast
now its time to feel old,
as survivors of the past
we have lost control,
we’re designers after all
of a brutal globe,
every step we take
has been signed by blood,
every move we make
is a loss of trust,
yeah sit back and laugh,
while another life’s been lost,
but still I can smell hope,
the remedy we’ve got,
don’t forget but forgive,
and burn down those guns,
give freedom to live
to your daughters and sons,
see it as a gift,
for mother world to go on,
after all we’re the same,
sharing the same sun,
we are the ones to blame
for every single bomb,
we are the ones to name
for every childs' tomb,
the only way for change
is if we all stand up,
get up world
& be united as one

Live up Live up
Love your bredren,
Live up Live up
Love your sistren,
Live up Live up
& Live this world in peace,

Live up Live up,
Rise up like a star,
forget about the system,
ca you know who you are,
Live up Live up
& Rise up & shine,
ca what dem are afraid the most
is a youth with a smile,
Live up Live up
& blow dem away,
the wicked dem a run,
while da good heart shall stay,
Live up Live up,
give light to your life,
ca love in this time is the only way to survive,

Open up your heart
and begin to realise,
dem are driving us apart
so that each other we a fight,
to each other we a lie
from each other we a hide,
so we go our different ways
so that all the same it stays,
but what dem cannot see,
are the flowers are trees,
the mountains & the sees,
colours & differences,
the POWA of this globe
is mother nature & its bees,
no money in this world
will set the people free,

Open up your heart & you will see,
how times are changing, how times are changing
Open up your heart & you will see,
how times are changing, how times are changing
Track Name: Solo una Storia
Vieni a vedere questi musicanti cantastorie di storie incresciose,
intrighi di intrecci di fili sottili con temi centrali d'amore e d'onore,
l'uomo per strada che passa con passo sicuro
ad ogni impronta che lascia alza del fumo,
ha il cuore puro e testa alta lungo il suo cammino
ed è da anni che cerca risposte e forse sono uguali alle nostre,
ma sono nascoste così scoraggiato con l'oste brinda all'ennesimo quarto di vino,
e fissa il suo bicchiere mentre la sua mano trema,
e vede nel rosso il passato che scorre e percorre la sua vita terrena,
come al cinema elimina ogni pensiero e limita un desiderio d'azione,
s'alza di scatto rompe il bicchiere..... boom! rivelazione,
che sei una persona grazie al tuo Cuore ciò che ti distingue è il nome e il cognome,
pari diritti come persone e sfido chiunque a non darmi ragione!
Track Name: Powa to the People
I moch die Augn au und do stea i im Film,
schaug ausn Landl ausn
und bin mittendrin in an geplantn Attentat
organisiert von Vater Staat ey,

There´s something about to change between the people
believe me
we are starting to realise that we have power
united,
we´ve been treated like slaves for too long time
admit it, admit it.

Weil olles wosmor tian isch irgendwo kontrolliert,
obor so konns oanfoch net gian weil des so net funktioniert
no way,

The most simple things are so hard to reach
that´s why i fight till i will loose my faith.

Power to the people, power to the people
nothing is stronger than the power of the people
nothing is stronger than the power of the people.

I can see through the lies,
keeping in mind that the money will never give me a better life,
keeping surviving the darkness,
keeping my eyes on the target, regardless,
they treat me like a monster,
and close me into a cage,
they fill your head with non-sense,
stealing your time and space,
Holy Grace!
Please take us away from this maze,
or we will break our chains and just tear down the gates,
Holy grace!
Give us the power to make a change
or we will watch them in the face while we take control of this place,
Babylon Hysterical,
every action is intentional,
the consequence are terrible,
the purpose unforgettable,
the water and food are unacceptable,
they poison our air with chemical,
they poison our body with medical,
it’s a cynical world that we live in,
children are screaming,
people stop dreaming,
we gotta find a healing,
we gotta find a healing!

suona la sveglia ogni giorno alle sei,
e come ogni giorno la distruggerei,
i giorni che passano uguali mi stanno ammazzando odio questa routine io la cambierei,
non ho frequentato i licei come te,
ma nei weekend,
resto sveglio fino dopo le sei,
guardando per ore la volta celeste come galilei,
non siamo come tu ci vuoi,
e fattene una ragione,
ma se non puoi,
parla con uno di noi,
ti illustreremo la nostra visione,
due quarti alla fine di questa canzone,
e manca l'ispirazione,
trovo la fine del testo cercando le idee mettendole apposto nella confusione,
mentre si muove splende la luna,
il foglio si riempie come la laguna,
la mina che si consuma,
dona ad ogni riga l'impatto che voglio la forza opportuna,
per arrivare laddove la musica è l'unico frutto che ci accomuna,
e la bestia famelica d'odio è l'unica cosa che resta digiuna.
Track Name: Tout le Monde
Es gib so viele Probleme de man gemeinsam lösn konn,
mir sein so viele Individuen in an getoaltn Lond,
kim Bruader gib mir die Hond, i sig in dir ollerhond,
Motivation und Ziele man störker seinmor banond,
man viel zu long, hot ins is System schickaniert,
manipuliert,und ins zu dean wo mor iats sein gfiart,
es isch leichter als du denksch sich zu rebeliern,
pflonz an Gortn ein um is System zu boykotiern,
moch in deine Nochborn a Freid, lern ihmene is Gleiche zu tian,
die Welt isch hort ober mai, nix ändert sich wennmor nix tian,
nix ändert sich wennmor nix tian!

When we come da sealing a go fall fall,
& when its done da building a go crall crall,
for so long you been stressed by your job,
now people start to jump jump, start to jump jump!
When we come da sealing a go fall fall,
& when its done da building a go crall crall,
for so long you been stressed by your job,
no people start to jump jump, start to jump jump!

Shanti roar like lion,
Shanti bless with the faya,
the man wants money and powa,
them all a freaks and cowards,
Inna the hand them have the diamond, gold, oil, food and water,
call it 1984 or call it New world Order,
but it´s a mental slavery, a mental slavery!
while the police controll us, they abuse them authority!
it´s a mental slavery, mental slavery!
while the politics get rich upon the poverty on the street!
Upon the poverty on the street

qui tutto sembra fantastico anche se,
quando passi per la strada ci guardi con disprezzo il giudizio è classico,
lo vedo nei tuoi occhi che vorresti ammazzarci,
e se ci parli ci riversi addosso solo l'acido,
non puoi fermarci ma,
puoi provarci se ti va,
sforzarti di adeguarti a questa finta società,
indossare la maschera cambiare personalità,
e annegare in fretta nella tua stessa ambiguità,
ma la sorte qui non cambia,
la fiamma non divampa,
tra la gente che resta uguale mantengo la visione ampia,
la velocità a novanta la mentalità che esalta,
se il testo è venuto bene a ha la metrica che spacca,
della doppia H non ci capisco un'H,
dell'artista in voga della moda sono fuori dalla massa,
la musica mi basta e l'ultima mia tappa,
è sentire la mia voce che esce a tempo dalla cassa.

Je n´ai marre de ce qui se passe depuis long temp dans cette endroit
libertee´ et egalitee´ est ce que on a besoin
au jour d´oui c´est en jour meilleur je me suis reveille ave en souris dans mon coeur
c´est tout le monde tout le monde ensemble
on prend babylon y on le laisse tombe
c´est tout le monde tout le monde ensemble
on prend babylon y on le laisse tombe
il´est fort le monde qui nous accompagne
dans l´aire y l´y a le desire de changer.
il´est fort le monde qui nous accompagne
dans l´aire y l´y a le desire de changer.

We nah need no manager,
we a do it on our own,
we are who are,
we nah need no image no,
we’re nah kidding with di music,
it a blow up di stereo,
no matter where we are,
Italy or Canada,
in every yard we a mash up da show when we come,
Lord, can you feel the vibration from our heart,
it will come alive in our songs, Lord,
Shanti Powa Vibration
Track Name: Swing and Shout
Shanti massive suoni bassi musica relax,
spiaggia sole cocktail di sottofondo un sax,
tutti in cerchio la melodia che sale,
e come accompagnamento il suono delle onde del mare,
voglia di scappare di vedere posti nuovi volti nuovi e se ti muovi ti ritrovi sempre fuori,
ritrovi te stesso se spesso tu cambi umori,
ti conosci meglio se al risveglio vedi i colori,
di sto mondo come l'arcobaleno,
capisci che esisti ma insisti che vedi ancora tutto in bianco e nero,
amico svegliati che questo non è un sogno,
i colori che vediamo noi ci rallegrano ogni giorno,
colori vividi da sveglio e offuscati quando dormo,
tornano vividi per darci il buon giorno,
belle sensazioni vibrazioni da dividere,
storie da cominciare per cominciare a vivere,
all'inizio eravamo angeli tutti uguali,
ora vedo umani comportarsi come animali,
io non ho scelto di nascere e di perdere le ali,
quindi lasciatemi vivere secondo i miei ideali

Even when the sun goes down
let your self go with this brand new sound
and when the people swing and shout
keep it groovy and move it move it

Zieh dein T-Shirt aus,
let the Powa begin,
es ist heiß fühl dich frei,
im Moment bis du die Queen,
fühl den Sommer to the fullest,
thats the best thing,
fühl den Sommer in dir drin,
Oh what a pretty thing,
komm und sing uns Mal was über dein Leben,
setzt dich hin yeah, da gibts nichts zu überlegen,
wenn es kalt und dunkel is muss ich mich übergeben,
praise the sunshine every day,
die Sonne gibt mir den Segen,
mich zu fühlen, mich zu sehen,
mich su regen, mich zu drehen,
when I got sunshine on my back,
I forget about den Regen,
im Sommer steigt in mir die Lust,
die Lust mich zu bewegen,
Sommer Ragga Style,
von Afrika bis nach Schweden,
hol die Drums aus deinen Haus
und ergib dich den Fieber,
steh Mal auf, geh Mal raus,
denn bald ists wieder vorüber,
Die Sonne strahlt in deine Augen,
denn sie ist kein Betrüger,
so stell dich der Wahrheit
und freu dich darüber.

even when the sun goes down
let your self go with this brand new sound
and when the people swing and shout
keep it groovy and move it move it right now
