Track Name: Dame La Luz
Dame la luz, dame la luz
kukullero kukullero, dame la luz
Dame la luz, dame la luz
kukullero kukullero, dame la luz
sigue mi luz, sigue mi luz
mi guerrero, mi guerrero
sigue mi luz
sigue mi luz, sigue mi luz
mi guerrero, mi guerrero
sigue mi luz
faro farito, ponte a brillar
pa' que no me pierda en el medio del mar
mi lucerito ponte a alumbrar
pa' que me ilumines y enseñes a amar
porque yo se que tu
prendes y traes la luz
y el que trae esa luz
yo se que siempre eres tu
yo necesito que tu
vengas y traigas la luz
Track Name: Medicine Music
Yo I wanna send a message to the man
and so I'm gonna send it while I can
as I take a stand
I wanna send this message to the man
so now I'm gonna send it while I can

With this medicine music, yeah
the medicine music, yeah
we call it medicine music, yea-ah
the medicine music, yeah

My people want an answer for cancer
and they want more than a bandaid for AIDS
and they want to live to do more than just work
they need more than an increase in wage
but I guess maybe to you that's asking too much
cuz most of us will settle for a raise
and my people tell me not to get my hopes up
cuz the man will probably never change his ways
but I believe in something most of them don't
the power of a never-ending faith
the power to uplift someone with just words
the power of a paragraph or phrase
and I believe in what I do believe so damn much
that in my darkest days I'm never phased
I find peace within the purity of my love
and deep within that peace is where I'm saved

With this medicine music, yeah
the medicine music, yeah
we call it medicine music, yea-ah
the medicine music, yeah

I know that this life is just a ride
and that's alright baby, that's alright
I know this system is just a lie
and that's alright, Jah is on my side
familia, tu eres la perfecta medicina
la unica que el mundo necesita
your love and empathy is what we need now
because we're one mind and one heart
so tell me everything you want to say
tell me that you're living in the real world
and tell me that it's here you're gonna stay
cuz eveybody's dealin' with their own thing
and every now and then we wanna run away
but my people have the remedy for that pain
to give us all strength to seize the day

With this medicine music, yeah
the medicine music, yeah
we call it medicine music, yea-ah
the medicine music, yeah

that might have made you cry
there ain't no time to waste on someone else's regrets
and if you still have a heart then you ain't lost nothin' yet
oh my dear sister, one thing that I know is true
no matter what we're faced with we will make it through

Track Name: Voy Subiendo
Voy subiendo, y viendo
yo voy subiendo, y viendo

Lo que yo quiero es escuchar el viento
para saber lo que viene diciendo
para sanar y sentir su aliento
por eso sigo avanzando y subiendo
subo buscando mi renacimiento
que mis caminos sigan floreciendo
el halconcito me cuenta su cuento
que el vientecito le viene diciendo

Voy subiendo, y viendo
yo voy subiendo, y viendo

Hay un fueguito fumando en el valle
quemando todo que tumba y que cae
y ahorita anda subiendo hasta el pico
limpiando todo y cubriendo el cielito
ay mi fueguito te llevo por dentro
como la tierra te lleva en el centro
como te lleva el aliento del viento
cuando te siento yo vengo diciendo

voy subiendo, y viendo
yo voy subiendo, y viendo

Y aunque ahora veo que esta lloviendo
yo sigo por mi subida subiendo
me vitaliza el aguita que siento
y mi voluntad se va fortaleciendo
yo se que en este camino van pocos
y aun asi se que nunca estoy solo
tengo el aguita que llevo en los ojos
que me acompaña con cantos hermosos

y con eso voy subiendo, y viendo
yo voy subiendo, y viendo
Track Name: Higher Vibration

Track Name: T. One World
Ayo the whole world's watchin' as we forge the sound, I said
you're listenin' to T. One now
and yo the whole world's watchin' as we forge the sound
and we're all together as the clock wind down

If it's a T. One World then it's a T. One life
let's put the T within Together and we'll be alright
we've only got one world, we've only got one life
come on let's drink the tea together and we'll be alright
If it's a T. One World then it's a T. One life
let's put the T within Together and we'll be alright
we've only got one world, we've only got one life
come on let's drink the tea together and we'll be alright

Yo this vibration is a movement, the type to keep you movin'
now your bodies say it's groovy but your mind's sayin' it's soothin'
it's a groove to move the masses so the world can move the Earth
and the planet can complete a revolution in reverse
it's just a verse and I'm just tryin' to write
while rapper's droolin' over my style like it was love at first bite
and that's ok, I got that kryptonite for haters
meanin' I'ma love you now so I don't have to hate you later
I'd rather live and so I say whatever
you can't rain on my parade I march regardless of the weather
so when life's givin' you lemons just drop 'em in coronas
you can drown in the tsunami, I'ma ride it like Winona

If it's a T. One World then it's a T. One life
let's put the T within Together and we'll be alright
we've only got one world, we've only got one life
come on let's drink the tea together and we'll be alright

In this one life we're learnin' infinite lessons
just like this moment is a gift, that's why they call it the present
and whether you unwrap it now or later's up to you
but the longer that you choose to wait the more it sucks for you
cuz in a split second this moment will be long gone
and if you get reckless the next second might not come
this T. One World is lined with broken streets
that are race tracks for rats so the cats can feast
but whether you a cat or a rat, I'm like a falcon
stalkin' his prey, watchin' the race up on a mountain
countin' victims through the shadows of the system
just like a precision bullet of wisdom I hit 'em and never miss 'em
embrace the grace of my form when I dive with performance
and raise the place when I'm live
so feel the vibe, let love consume your life and
press play today on a tune you like

If it's a T. One World then it's a T. One life
let's put the T within Together and we'll be alright
we've only got one world, we've only got one life
come on let's drink the tea together and we'll be alright
If it's a T. One World
Together and we'll be alright
we've only got one world, we've only got one life
come on let's drink the tea together and we'll be alright

ba-ba-dum-ba-ba-boom-po-po

ba-ba-dum-ba-ba-boom-po-po
yeah ba-dum-ba-ba

ba-dum

Everytime I turn to look her way
my neck is breakin' head is hangin'
I don't know I don't know I don't know
know what to say
should I go, should I
Cuz everytime I turn to look her way
my neck is breakin' head is hangin'
I don't know I don't know I don't know
know what to say
should I go, should I
stay, stay stay in this one world
stay, stay, stay in this one life
stay
stay, stay, stay in this one world
stay, stay, stay in this one life
stay
Track Name: Tu Dices Que
Tu dices que, cuanto se ve
que debo ser de otro planeta en el outer space
y tu me dices que estoy loco pero yo estoy bien
aunque tu no lo crees
con razon tu dices que, cuanto se ve
que debo ser de otro planeta en el outer space
y tu me dices que estoy loco pero yo estoy bien
aunque tu no lo crees

Cada vez que yo te observo, mi cielo
quisiera alcanzarte aunque estes tan lejos, pero
con un impulso puedo despegar
pa' la constelacion tuya como un rayo solar
porque tu sabes que yo soy el que penetra tu abismo
muchos tratan, pero nunca es lo mismo
no solo represento Miami
yo represento la liga internacional del joven intelectual
atacandote el cuerpazo con un ritmo brutal
estrenando un estilo tan supernatural
porque soy T. One de EMPHATK con letra tan magica
tan fresco como un nike recien hecho en la fabrica
y yo les recomiendo que ya inviertan en mi ya
porque este producto es fuego con dinamita
dice, tic toc la bomba ya esta lista
y pega mas duro que mil golpistas

Tu dices que, cuanto se ve
que debo ser de otro planeta en el outer space
y tu me dices que estoy loco pero yo estoy bien
aunque tu no lo crees
con razon tu dices que, cuanto se ve
que debo ser de otro planeta en el outer space
y tu me dices que estoy loco pero yo estoy bien
aunque tu no lo crees

Porque yo se, que en este mundo hay que tener mucha mucha fe
que en cada uno de nosotros hay mucho poder
que en cada uno de nosotros hay que ver
porque yo se, que en este mundo hay que tener mucha mucha fe
que en cada uno de nosotros hay mucho poder
que en cada uno de nosotros hay que ver
Amor, amor
Amor, hay que ver amor

Caminando en mocasines
siente la brisa y oye cuando te avisa que llegamos con el ritmo de mil pies
no culpes a la noche, no culpes a la playa ni la lluvia
blame it on what the king says
porque un lider no nace, se hace como yo
renacimiento me paso como el phoenix
y con ese fuego en el cielo derrito hielo
por eso yo despego desde el año 2010
este guerrero representa paz
aunque armas preparadas nunca estan demas
porque el precio de paz pudiera ser tu cabeza
en tal caso mi mision es esa
como una flecha, volando con la punta afilada
hacia tu punto, clavando como una espada
la armonia es como espinas de corona clavadas
en una herida bajo agua salada

Tu dices que, cuanto se ve
que debo ser de otro planeta en el outer space
y tu me dices que estoy loco pero yo estoy bien
aunque tu no lo crees
con razon tu dices que, cuanto se ve
que debo ser de otro planeta en el outer space
y tu me dices que estoy loco pero yo estoy bien
aunque tu no lo crees

Porque yo se, que en este mundo hay que tener mucha mucha fe
que en cada uno de nosotros hay mucho poder
que en cada uno de nosotros hay que ver
porque yo se, que en este mundo hay que tener mucha mucha fe
que en cada uno de nosotros hay mucho poder
que en cada uno de nosotros hay que ver
Amor, amor
Amor, hay que ver amor
Track Name: Golden Words
Hey wait, wait up shoo-bop-pa-do-bo
I won't give up shoo-bop-pa-do-bo
hey wait, where have you gone
Hey wait, wait up shoo-bop-pa-do-bo
I won't give up shoo-bop-pa-do-bo
hey wait, where have you gone

I see the mountains in my rear view mirror
I'm going towards the sea
I'm tired of drowning in that cold, cold river
you don't know what I've seen

Cuz I've been searching for such a long, long time for those golden words
I wish they'd show themselves to me just one more time, another lesson learned
so don't leave for tomorrow, what you can do today, don't leave no stone unturned
and if you don't cherish all that you've been given, you're the only one you've burned

Hey wait, wait up shoo-bop-pa-do-bo
I won't give up shoo-bop-pa-do-bo
hey wait, where have you gone
Hey wait, wait up shoo-bop-pa-do-bo
I won't give up shoo-bop-pa-do-bo
hey wait, where have you gone

I see the mountains in my rear view mirror
I'm going towards the sea
I'm tired of drowning in that cold, cold river
you don't know what I've seen
you don't know what I've seen
you don't know what I've seen

I've got some questions, please help me understand how you disappeared
did you become one with that blue horizon just to make me face my fears
the simple memory of you is the single greatest test of all my years
the next time I hold you I promise you you'll know the taste of all my tears

Hey wait, wait up shoo-bop-pa-do-bo
I won't give up shoo-bop-pa-do-bo
hey wait, where have you gone
Hey wait, wait up shoo-bop-pa-do-bo
I won't give up shoo-bop-pa-do-bo
hey wait, where have you gone

I see the mountains in my rear view mirror
I'm going towards the sea
I'm tired of drowning in that cold, cold river
you don't know what I've seen
you don't know what I've seen
you don't know what I've seen
you don't know what I've seen
you don't know what I've seen
Track Name: Leave a Message
I found you swimming
in the deep end of the midnight water
and you showed me everything you knew
about love, yes I know that's true
but now I see you crying
through the smoke of your heart on fire
for all your unfulfilled desires
and I wish I could fulfill them too

But you'll have to leave a message
I'm emotionally unavailable
just leave your name, number, and heartbeat at the tone
and I'll get back to you no later than never

You and me together
is like a Molotov cocktail
we light the fuse and we don't care
when we're burning down this whole town
but now you want space
and space is like a seamless vacuum
that keeps on pulling me back to you
and you to me, even here and now

So please leave a message
I'm emotionally unavailable
just leave your name, number, and heartbeat at the tone
and I'll get back to you no later than never
said I'll get back to you no later than never
because I'll act a fool always and forever

I wish it didn't have to be this way
because I know damn well
that you should never have to wait
for me or anybody else
I never did give you that ring
but I think that I'll leave it on the dresser
yea that'll be better

oh, please leave a message
I'm emotionally unavailable
just leave your name, number, and heartbeat at the tone
and I'll get back to you no later than never
yeah, please leave a message
I'm emotionally unavailable
just leave your name, number, and heartbeat at the tone
and I'll get back to you no later than never
said I'll get back to you no later than never
because I'll act a fool always and forever
I said I'll act a fool always and forever
Track Name: Tierra Firme
Ooooooo
Ooooooo
Ooooooo

Estoy en el aire por ahi flotando
sin saber lo que estoy buscando
pero yo siento por dentro que el viento me puede ubicar
solo se que mi destino
queda al final de 2000 caminos
y aunque nunca lo he visto yo se que yo voy a llegar

Yo te prometo que el dia que yo toque tierra firme
yo enterrare mis alas, y mis armas antes de irme
y cuando llegue ese dia yo por fin estare libre
de mi arco y mi flecha y el miedo de no conseguirte

Ooooooo
Ooooooo
Ooooooo

La medicina de tu esperanza
al corazon me quita las manchas
y me permite seguir avanzando sin un paso atras
tengo la fe que lo invisible
me brinda lo imposible
y me guia hacia un mundo de amor verdadero y paz

Yo te prometo que el dia que yo toque tierra firme
yo enterrare mis alas, y mis armas antes de irme
y cuando llegue ese dia yo por fin estare libre
de mi arco y mi flecha y el miedo de no conseguirte

Ooooooo
Ooooooo
Ooooooo
