Austin's City Limits- (Music By Big R, Lyrics by Leftee) 2007

Austin's City Limits is covered with mud,

the trench is two miles deep, I just lost my truck.

Stuck here with the ghost, Stuck here with the ghost,

Stuck here with the ghost, He's the most.

Notes: While ThreePeace was getting ready to record this album they played a New Years gig in Otter Lake, Michigan..... This was a private party. After the gig, the band continued to practice at this location for about a month in rehearsal for the album sessions. It was winter and the driveway to the place was almost impassible. Likewise, every time they rehearsed someone or another in the band was seeing apparitions of a ghost. So the band was jamming this catchy riff and Leftee just started singing about the place, this classic jam band groove was the result. Thanks to Austin for providing the memories and the jam space. Leftee played the Drums, Vocals. Raul on the Bass, Big R on all guitars.

 

War / Shine On Children - (War by Marley, Shine On Children written by Leftee) 2007

Until the philosophy which holds one race superior

and another inferior, is finally and permanently discredited

and abandoned.

 

Everywhere is War.

 

Until there's no longer first class or second class citizen

of any Nation. Until the color of mans skin is of no more

significance unto the color of his eyes. Until that day the

dream of lasting peace, World citizenship, rule of international

morality, will remain but a fleeting illusion to be pursued but

never attained.

 

Everywhere is War.

 

Shining, Shining, Shining

Shine on Children.

Jah Jah take me from the Homeland I and I.

Told me to spread the message to America yeah.

So I took the responsibility to spread the words of Jah Jah.

Jah Jah said to "Come on spread the message".

So we'll be Shining, Shining, Shining

Shine on Children.

Notes: War is a song performed by the late great Bob Marley which has always inspired ThreePeace, with the current World situation the band felt it would be a good time to bring it back to the people. Leftee composed Shine On Children after visiting Bob Marley's Mausoleum in the Parrish of Nine Miles, Jamaica back in 1991. Leftee played the Drums, Bass Guitar, Vocals. Raul played the percussion guitar, Big R played Rhythm and Lead Guitar.

 

Prince William Sound - (Written by Leftee & Big R) 2007 

Prince William Sound will never be the same,

The oil has come in the sand is stained.

Prince William Sound will never be the same.

The oil has come the land is stained.

 

Water has turned black, the fish are never coming back.

The Captain he don't care, all the sea life in despair.

The Captain he's having a snore, while the oil will pour.

The First Mate failed the school, he forgot the golden rule.

 

Prince William Sound will never be the same,

The oil has come in the sand is stained.

Prince William Sound will never be the same.

The oil has come the land is stained.

 

Breeding Birds must await, for the others it's too late.

Sea Otters coated with crude, Exxon is so rude.

Now the prices rise at the pump, the President is a chump.

Financial Aid is never paid until it's too late.

 

Prince William Sound will never be the same,

The oil has come in the sand is stained.

Prince William Sound will never be the same.

The oil has come the land is stained.

Notes: This song was written by Big R and Leftee back in the 80's when the oil spill blanketed Prince William Sound Alaska. ThreePeace included this song on the album as a tribute to Alaska Jahn Lysen of KUAC Radio in Alaska. Jahn has featured ThreePeace numerous times on his Round' Midnight Riddims Show. ThreePeace recorded this song on his behalf for the people of Alaska, and everyone who suffered through this horrific disaster. Leftee played the Drums, Vocals. Raul on the Bass, Big R on all guitars.

 

Lay My Life Down - (Music by Big R, Words by Leftee) 2007 

The Spring arrived and the sun will shine.

We planted our seeds and our love arrived.

I dreamed of you and what did you do?

You Rocked Me, Rocked Me Baby right on through.

The future is bright right here at the start.

Please believe I'll never break your heart.

When the Spring time storm blows in.

I'll communicate with my best friend.

 

When I'm feeling down, alone or blue.

I think of your love, it pulls me through.

I would lay my life down for you.

I love you more with everything we do.

 

Summer came and we had more fun.

Believing in each other and everything we've done.

I dreamed of you and what did you do?

You Rocked Me, Rocked Me baby right on through.

Thinking of now and the time we've shared,

Looking in you eyes and I know you care.

When the Summer breeze blows in,

I'll share it with my best friend.

 

When I'm feeling down, alone or blue.

I think of your love, it pulls me through.

I would lay my life down for you.

I love you more with everything we do.

 

The Fall showed up right outside my door,

The colors were blazing like never before.

I dreamed of you and what did you do?

You Rocked Me, Rocked Me baby right on through.

Tomorrow looks bright and that's for sure.

Whatever ails me baby your the cure.

And when the leaves from the trees blow in.

I'll thank the Lord for my best friend.

 

When I'm feeling down, alone or blue.

I think of your love, it pulls me through.

I would lay my life down for you.

I love you more with everything we do.

 

Winter arrived with a blast of snow,

by the fire side our love would grow.

I dreamed of you and what did you do?

You Rocked Me, Rocked Me baby right on through.

Life is short and I keep that in mind,

While I'm lucky enough to have another time.

When the skies of Winter blow in.

I'll cuddle up with my best friend.

 

When I'm feeling down, alone or blue.

I think of your love, it pulls me through.

I would lay my life down for you.

I love you more with everything we do.

Notes: Lay My Life Down is a collaboration between Big R and Leftee. This song is about new love, and the progression of that love though life. The seasons are used as a metaphor to describe the different stages of a wonderful love through life. This kind of love doesn't come around very often, the song reminds us to appreciate the ones we love and make the most of the limited time we all share together. A song of appreciation. Leftee played the Drums, Vocals. Raul played the Bass Guitar, Big R on all guitars.

 

Fat Cats - (Words and Music by Leftee) 2007

I woke up this morning fighting a tribal war.

Against the system, I fight it some more.

I can't understand why a man can't live,

the life he wants to live.

Why it's always interrupted by something illegal.

 

I say the Fat Cats, Another Word for a Rat.

they're the Fat Cats, Yes I said they are the Fat Cats.

Another Word for a Rat.

They're the Fat Cats, the symbol is an Elephant.

 

Now the people won't put up no more,

with rotten to the core.

We've witnessed your illusions,

We'll vote for some changes.

This Democratic, Bureaucratic system has

*ucked it in our face.

They take the small man for granted,

They're just a big disgrace.

 

I say the Fat Cats, Another Word for a Rat.

they're the Fat Cats, Yes I said they are the Fat Cats.

Another Word for a Rat.

They're the Fat Cats, the symbol is an Elephant.

Notes: This song is very self explanatory, the band feels the current political administration is destroying our great country with oppressive greed and war. Vote for some changes!!! Leftee played the Drums, Rhythm Guitar, Bass Guitar, Vocals. Raul percussion guitar, Big R Lead Guitar.

 

Let It Grow - (Music by Big R, Words by Leftee & Big R) 2007   

All the Presidents Men fly over his crop.

All the Presidents Men slash them down.

But they're never gonna stop it.

He'll just grow it again.

For the love of the Rastaman.

 

They're never gonna stop it.

Let It Grow.

They're never gonna stop it.

Let Him Go.

 

All the Presidents Men spreading their greed.

All the Presidents Men blame the weed.

But their ain't no use.

The truth must spread the land.

For the love of the Rastaman.

 

They're never gonna stop it.

Let It Grow.

They're never gonna stop it.

Let Him Go.

Notes: This song is a band dedication to Bob Marley. Leftee played the Drums, Bass Guitar, Vocals. Raul Percussion Guitar, Big R Rhythm and Lead Guitars.

 

Shadow People - ( Music by Big R & Leftee, lyrics Leftee & Joe Rynearson) 2007

Do You know a thing they call the yummies,

fun to snort, yummy in the tummy.

Super Comfy in the back of my head,

What's that on the carpet,

Well my nose has just bled.

Who is that behind your back?

Shadow Person with an axe,

Who is that in the hall,

Shadow Person just took a fall

 

Shadow People, Shadow People

Shadow People, Shadow People.

 

Do You know a thing they call the yummies,

fun to snort, yummy in the tummy.

Super Comfy in the back of my head,

What's that on the carpet,

Well my nose has just bled.

Who is that behind your back?

Shadow Person with an axe,

Who is that in the hall,

Shadow Person just took a fall.

Shadow People are all around.

When you look no one to be found.

Close the door, turn out the light.

Shadow People are now in sight.

 

Shadow People, Shadow People

Shadow People, Shadow People.

 

Do You know a thing they call the yummies,

fun to snort, yummy in the tummy.

Super Comfy in the back of my head,

What's that on the carpet,

Well my nose has just bled.

Who is that behind your back?

Shadow Person with an axe,

Who is that in the hall,

Shadow Person just took a fall.

Shadow People run this town.

Shadow People run me down.

Climb the ladder, scale the wall.

You know you can't escape them all.

Notes: This song is the true story of a cocaine addict whose paranoia became a self destroya!! The message is to avoid the evil demons and pitfalls of cocaine. Cocaine had so invaded this persons life, that he began to have delusions of Shadow People. Hopefully this song can be a motivation to avoid this horrific drug. The song reminds everyone that eventually the drug will do you in. Leftee played the Drums, Vocals. Raul on the Bass, Big R on Rhythm and Lead Guitars.

 

A Little Reggae Rock -(Words and Music by Leftee) 2007

When the World has got you down, don't ever stop.

Put on a little Reggae Rock.

When the World has got you staring down a barrels stock.

Put on a little Reggae Rock.

 

The World weighs on you soul.

You've come up short of your goal.

You'll survive with belief in yourself.

Turn it up and push on through.

 

When the World has got you down, don't ever stop.

Put on a little Reggae Rock.

When the World has got you staring down a barrels stock.

Put on a little Reggae Rock.

 

Your best friends turn on you.

Now your wondering what to do?

You'll survive with belief in yourself.

Turn it up and push on through.

 

When the World has got you down, don't ever stop.

Put on a little Reggae Rock.

When the World has got you staring down a barrels stock.

Put on a little Reggae Rock.

 

Hypocrites rise to power.

But they know not the hour.

You'll survive with belief in yourself.

Turn it up and push on through.

 

When the World has got you down, don't ever stop.

Put on a little Reggae Rock.

When the World has got you staring down a barrels stock.

Put on a little Reggae Rock.

Notes: If the World is your oyster, then you will need some music as a soundtrack. There is nothing easy about living in today's World. This song is intended to be the catalyst to help you survive. "Turn it up and push on through." When your down don't ever stop, put on a little Reggae Rock. Leftee played the Rhythm Guitar, Bass Guitar, Vocals. Raul played percussion guitar. Big R played the Lead Guitar. Mr X (Session Musician) played the Drums.

Pyroclastic Flow / Roots Rock Reggae - (Pyroclastic by Big R & Leftee, Roots Rock by Bob Marley) 2007  

A Pyroclastic Flow is burnin' through your town.

A Cloud of Fire and Ash is going to run you down, to the ground.

This a reggae music, this a reggae music, jam it out now.

 

Hey Mr. Music you sure sound good to me.

I can't refuse it, what to be got to be.

I feel like dancing, dance cause we are free.

Feel like dancing, come dance with me.

Roots Rock Reggae, this a reggae music.

Roots Rock Reggae, this a reggae music.

 

A Pyroclastic Flow is burnin' through your town.

A Cloud of Fire and Ash is going to run you down, to the ground.

This a reggae music, this a reggae music, jam it out right yea!

Notes: This song is a combination of the Marley Classic Roots, Rock, Reggae and the merging of a ThreePeace song called Pyroclastic Flow. Geologists will tell you a Pyroclastic Flow is a volcanic discharge of fire and ash when a volcano explodes. It travels across the ground at over 300mph, destroying everything in it's path. This is used as a metaphor to warn us of the impending biblical doom the world seems to be headed toward. The believers will be saved "dance cause we are free". Leftee played the Drums, Bass Guitar, Vocals. Raul played the Percussion Guitar. Big R played Rhythm and Lead Guitars.

 

Now I See - (words and music by Leftee) 2007   

Lost here in Life, caught in motion.

Can't find a single parallel emotion.

Set my mind on a distant goal.

Pull myself from out of the hole.

See the person I want to be,

Try to make it a reality now.

 

Now I see, I can rely on me.

This is the only way to be.

 

Others tie me down,

Can't get off the ground.

But I am not happy,

With that disturbing sound.

Believe you can be,

All you want to be.

Cause in reality,

It all comes down to me.

See the person I want to be,

Try to make it a reality now.

 

Now I see, I can rely on me.

This is the only way to be.

 

.......Oh yea! The only way to be all right!

This is the only way to be, the only way to be

All Right!!!!!

Notes: This song is a message to stop relying on others and rely on yourself. Pilot your own ship with help from the Creator of course. Leftee played the Drums, Rhythm Guitar, Vocals. Raul played Rhythm Guitar. Big played the Lead Guitar and Rhythm Guitars.

 

Victim of Circumstance - (Words and Music by Leftee, Big R) 2007  

Just a victim of circumstance,

Lost my leg and my pants.

Just a victim of circumstance,

Lost my leg, Lost Romance.

Just another victim of circumstance.

 

Driving down highway 880,

getting ready for the game.

Next thing I know,

The whole Worlds gone insane.

Cement falling down on me,

I can feel the earth all around me.

 

Just a victim of circumstance,

Lost my leg and my pants.

Just a victim of circumstance,

Lost my leg, Lost Romance.

Just another victim of circumstance.

 

Just a victim of circumstance,

pinned under the overpass.

Just an unlucky one,

Crushed beneath 5000 tons.

Died a painful death.

A bolder through my chest.

 

Dog sniffin' through all the rubble,

Help me I'm trapped in a bubble.

Losing too much blood,

Soon I'll be in trouble.

Lord I hope someone finds me?

I Hope they take the trouble.

 

Just a victim of circumstance,

Lost my leg and my pants.

Just a victim of circumstance,

Lost my leg, Lost Romance.

Just another victim of circumstance.

(Tribute to the Dead)

Notes: This song is written about the San Francisco Earthquake of  1989. It is  a sort of tongue in cheek humor. The point of it is that this eternal optimist is trapped somewhere in the rubble, or perhaps he is already in heaven on the other side looking back and laughing. Tsunami victims must have felt very much the same thing. "What the @#$%^"

 

One World (Not Three) - (Words and Music by Sting) (Ghost in the Machine) (1981)  

One world is enough,

For all of us.

One world is enough,

For all of us.




It's a subject we rarely mention,

But when we do we have this little invention.

By pretending they're a different world from me,

I show my responsibility.




One world is enough,

For all of us.

One world is enough,

For all of us.




The third world breathes our air tomorrow.

We live on the time we borrow.

In our world there's no time for sorrow.

In their world there is no tomorrow.




One world is enough,

For all of us.

One world is enough,

For all of us.




Lines are drawn upon the world,

Before we get our flags unfurled

Whichever one we pick,

It's just a self deluding trick




One world is enough,

For all of us.

One world is enough,

For all of us.




I don't want to bring a sour note,

Remember this before you vote.

We can all sink or we all float,

'Cos we're all in the same big boat.




One world is enough

For all of us

One world is enough

For all of us





It may seem a million miles away

But it gets a little closer everyday

It may seem a million miles away

But it gets a little closer everyday

It may seem a million miles away

But it gets a little closer everyday




One world...

Notes: This song is a regular in the bands live shows although this acoustic version is very different from the live one. The live version much more resembles the Police version. This band felt this song was even more relevant today then when it was recorded back in 1981.

 

Gone Away(Music By Big R, Lyrics by Leftee) (2007)  

 

Before We’re Gone Away,

Before We’re Gone Away.

 

Hey there people of distant lands,

Raise your white flags, Raise your hands.

The Worlds in need of Brothers in Arms.

Yes it’s time, to sound the Alarm.

Political Leaders, A losing cause.

I think it’s safe to say, “We’re the Boss”.

The Worlds in need for Crying out loud.

We’ve had enough of the Circus Clowns.

 

Before We’re Gone Away,

Before We’re Gone Away.

 

Hey There Media Slime,

Dividing the World one more time.

Spewing your Rhetoric to a fever Pitch.

See the man beheaded, then thrown in a ditch.

Everything Immoral “Yes, that will sell”!!

Transmitting messages straight from hell.

The Power lies within your hands.

Now deliver us to the promise land.

 

Before We’re Gone Away,

Before We’re Gone Away.

 

Hey There President Bush,

All the World’s People are on the hook.

Spreading your greed across the globe.

While people are dying here at home.

The World’s in need of common sense,

Not another political fence.

The Bible says it will come to pass,

So take your foot from off the gas.

 

Before We’re Gone Away,

Before We’re Gone Away.

Notes: This song is a collaboration between Leftee and Big R. The song was written as a catalyst for real changes in our World. It seems the whole World is hell bent on destruction. Think about your children before were "Gone Away". Should be something in there for everyone. Amazing Jams by Big R. Leftee played the Drums, Vocals. Big R played the Guitars and Bass Guitar.
