Empire of the Sun- (Words and Music by Big R, Leftee, Mr X) 2005 

Empire of the Sun,

Having Fun has just begun.

On a hilltop.

Non-stop Rock.

 

I was born on a Mountain!!

A Mountain by the sea.

Words of the Prophets,

They surrounded me.

 

Dreamed in the Sun,

As paradise rained on me.

Closed the Door to the past,

As my soul was freed.

 

Empire of the Sun,

Having Fun has just begun.

On a hilltop.

Non-stop Rock.

 

Empire……Empire

Setting Sun!!

Everyone………..

Everyone have some fun.

 

Living Life……..

The way the Lord meant to be.

No hard work…..

Peaceful and Free.

 

Empire of the Sun,

Having Fun has just begun.

On a hilltop.

Non-stop Rock.

 

I don’t care……..

I don’t care what they say.

We’re gonna play………

Play it our way

 

People try ………

To Drag me down…

Got to pick myself up.

Off the ground.

 

Empire of the Sun,

Having Fun has just begun.

On a hilltop.

Non-stop Rock.

Notes: This song is written about the town of Empire, Michigan where this album was recorded . The album was recorded on the bands portable studio. For now the studio will be called Sleepy Bear Recording Studio when it sets up shop in Empire.  “Most of this album just arrived”, say members of the band. “ A gift from the Creator”, there was little need to interfere with the process. The Music was written by Big R…….The Lyrics were collaboration between Leftee, Big R, and Mr X, who was session drummer & lyricist on this album. Leftee performed the Vocals and Bass Guitar on the track.

 

Use What Jah Give You (In a Good Way) (Words and Music by Raul)  2005 

You've got to Use what Jah give you, (In a Good Way)

You've got to Use what Jah give you, (In a Good Way)

You've got to Use what Jah give you, (In a Good Way)

You've got to love all the World all around.

 

If he gives you good legs, (You gotta walk on)

If Jah gives you two strong legs, (You gotta walk on)

If he give you two good legs, (You gotta walk on)

You've got to learn how to choose the right road.

 

If he gives you two strong arms (You gotta reach out)

If Jah give you two strong arms (You gotta reach out)

If he give you two strong arms (You gotta reach out)

You gotta reach out and give them a hand.

 

If he give you a good heart (You gotta love them)

If he give you a strong heart (You gotta love them)

If he give you a good heart (You gotta love them)

You gotta love all the brothers of man.

 

You gotta use it, you can't abuse it.

You don't want to, don't want to lose it.

You got to feed them, You gotta need them.

We are all the children of Jah.

Notes: This song is very much self explanatory if you understand Jah. (The Creator for those not familiar with Jah) Raul wrote this song and sings the Lead Vocals on the track, as well as rhythm guitar.  Big R plays the guitar and the leads. Leftee plays the Bass Guitar and Sings background vocals. Mr X drums on the track.

 

Emergency 9/11 (Words and Music by Big R, Leftee, Mr X) 2005 

Emergency 9/11,

Powerless Sheep go to heaven.

Fahrenheit 9/11,

All the damage has not been done.

 

Skyline filled with death,

Worlds tallest buildings come to rest.

All the people cried,

How our leaders lied.

 

Emergency 9/11

Powerless Sheep go to heaven.

Fahrenheit 9/11

All the damage has not been done.

 

Planes Flew into the Tower,

15 minutes before the hour.

People falling from the sky.

Fire Burning far and high.

 

Emergency 9/11,

Powerless Sheep go to heaven.

Fahrenheit 9/11,

All the damage has not been done. (Jam it down now)

 

See the smoke on the river,

Carnage slithers through the sky.

Devils Face in the smoke.

Innocent thousands say good-bye.

 

Emergency 9/11,

Powerless Sheep go to heaven.

Fahrenheit 9/11,

All the damage has not been done.

Notes: This CD does have its dark spots on it and this is by far the darkest. To the band 9/11 is a scar to never be forgotten. Michael Moore is a home town resident. When Fahrenheit 9/11 came out it had a profound effect on the band. This was just something the band had to say. It is a difficult topic for sure, ThreePeace feels all the lost souls should be remembered and not forgotten, and this is what they keep in mind each time they perform this song. Leftee sings lead vocals, plays Bass Guitar. Big R plays all guitars on the song, and Mr X plays the drums.

 

Woman is the Root of all Evil - (Words and Music by Leftee) 2005 

Woman is the Root of all Evil,

You don't need me to tell you so.

Woman is the Root of all Evil,

It's written in the Bible don't you know.

 

Brought the Fruit back in the Garden of Eden.

She Brought it again, but I'm not eating.

Have no choice in mating season.

But every time is an act of treason.

 

Woman is the Root of all Evil,

Look around and you'll see its so.

Woman is the Root of all Evil,

Bringing a dark cloud wherever they go.

 

Brought the Fruit back in the Garden of Eden.

She Brought it again, but I'm not eating.

Have no choice in mating season.

But every time is an act of treason.

 

Woman is the Root of all Evil,

You don't need me to tell you so.

Woman is the Root of all Evil,

It's written in the Bible don't you know.

Notes: Leftee wanted to make sure this song was understood in the context for which it was written. This song was written in waning days of marriage that had gone bad. The anger and disgust from the situation needed to be released. Love takes two to make, and it also takes two to break. This song is a song about the raw emotion of a painful relationship gone bad.......it  was a release of venom to heal. Any psychologist will tell you that it has to come out. This song was the catalyst to promote healing. ThreePeace loves  women and this isn't a hate song about  woman, as some have claimed it to be. Leftee believes this song allowed him to excise the demon of hatred from his soul, and in essence was nothing more than good therapy.  Leftee played the rhythm guitar on the track as well as the lead and background vocals. Big R played the Bass & Lead guitar and Mr X played the drums.

 

Threedom -(Music By Big R) 2005 

Notes: This is an instrumental which originally had a rough draft of lyrics by Big R. When the band recorded the song, Leftee & Big R concurred, "this song is great the way it is, the guitar playing could only be minimized by a vocal track." After a few listenings everyone concurred. The song is called Threedom because A) the song is a reggae song with the emphasis on the third beat, B) The song has two sections. The A section is repeated three times, then the B section is repeated three times, hence Threedom. Big R plays the Axe, Leftee plays the Bass Guitar, Raul played the Rhythm Guitar and Mr X played the drums.

 

One World / One God - (Words and Music by Leftee) 2005 

There's only one World,

There's only one God.

Religion divides us,

Makes us sing a bitter song.

 

God Made Man in his likeness,

Man made God in his own.

All different peoples,

Place their Kings on the throne.

 

There's one thing I'm sure of,

One thing that I know.

God would never divide us,

Or we'd each have a World of our own.

 

There's only one World,

There's only one God.

Religion divides us,

Makes us sing a bitter song. (Oh yeah)

 

Look around the World today,

Can't help but notice the truth.

Every Race divided,

wondering what to do?

 

This man prays to that God,

Those guys pray to theirs.

Praying to those God's,

Leaves the World in despair.

 

There's only one World,

There's only one God.

Religion divides us,

Makes us sing a bitter song. (Yeah Right!)

Notes: Leftee wrote this song with thousands of years of past war and global history. Everywhere on this planet people are at conflict many times over Religious beliefs or ideals. This ideology should be reconsidered by the entire planet if we are to survive. Leftee feels the World would live in much more harmony if we could agree that there is only One God, and many great representatives of God that were men. Most people believe there is  only one God, if we could just get together on this, the World would be a better place. Leftee isn't holding his breath, but hey it never hurts to have a dream. Leftee sings all the vocals, plays the bass guitar, Big R plays the lead guitar, Raul plays the rhythm guitar and Mr X plays the drums.

 

Assholes Song -(Words by Mr X, Music by Leftee) 2005 

Assholes spew a load of crap,

Every time they see ya.

The one thing your sure to get,

is verbal diarrhea.

 

Assholes like a pile of shit,

they both stink up the place.

And if they get a second chance,

They'll rub it right in your face.

 

Everywhere I go,

I find an Asshole lurking.

I see that smug, shit eating grin,

and wondering why they're smirking.

 

Some say I'm an Asshole,

Although this may be true.

It sure takes one to know one,

An Asshole just like you.

Notes: This Assholes song came out of the Air.....Mr X pulled out a two page poetry called "Assholes" and left Leftee and Big R in tears with laughter. It wasn't long after that, Leftee picked up and Acoustic Guitar and within seconds, "Poof" The Assholes song arrived. The band edited the lyrics down into a quick, hard hitting documentary. This is the most requested song when ThreePeace plays live, what does this say about our society?  The gist of it is, at some point everyone is an Asshole........LOL Believe it or not, Big R  & Leftee  both played the acoustic guitars, Big R played the Spanish lead overdub which drives the funny bone, and Leftee sings the vocals.

 

Somer's Time Reggae -(Music By Big R, Leftee, Mr X) 2005 

Notes: Somers Time Reggae is about the bands Roadie / Chef who in the course of his divorce was tormented endlessly by his wife on the phone. The idea came to document this emotion in reggae instrumental. That actually is Curly Chris Somers saying hello on the tune. The lunatic phone responses are performed by Leftee. "Is that my Mother on the phone?" Thanks to Curly from ThreePeace for being such a good sport. Leftee plays the rhythm guitar, Big R plays the bass guitar, Mr X plays the drums.
