Track Name: We Can Question History
We can question history

We can question history
in small groups we've found harmony
a global though is agony
but that's not how it has to be

We can question history
we came to a point talking about equality
anchor and principle in religion and humans rights
reaching that point took a very long time
We can question history
we came to a point talking about equality
neither religion nor human rights
could help the brave to stop the fight

We can question history oooh
We can question history yeah
We can question history oohoohh
We can question history yeah

Born to plant a new generation
born to grow to between pain and fascination
selling knowledge to delay our next destination
'cause knoledge is our survival foundation


We can question history
we came to a point talking about equality
anchor and principle in religion and humans rights
reaching that point took a very long time
We can question history
we came to a point talking about equality
neither religion nor human rights
could help the brave to stop the fight

We can question history oooh
We can question history yeah
We can question history oohoohh
We can question history yeah

Trust is gone and trust is dead
reving trust out of the past
hope is leading us into the next day
questioning history did show us the way

We can question history
we came to a point talking about equality
anchor and principle in religion and humans rights
reaching that point took a very long time
We can question history
we came to a point talking about equality
neither religion nor human rights
could help the brave to stop the fight

We can question history oooh
We can question history yeah
We can question history oohoohh
We can question history yeah

Track Name: Counting The Days Until The times Of Escalation
Counting the days until the time of escalation


Counting the days until the time of escalation
a visible spirit is poisening our nations
the spirits name
maybe corruption is giving freedom

there's no equal belief
there is battle in religion

it's interesting to look at our world
it's not scaring to count the days until escalation
'cause we don't know where it begins
we just look back if we want
there have been so many moments of escalation so what

is there any change of speed in frustration
I think there is

looks like we have less time
for happyness

looks like we have less time
for happyness

let's close our eyes
one more time
c and b cool love to feel
silence in the blind

and just don't worry
as long as there is some thing to laugh about
we can stand the darkest clouds

it's interesting to look at our world
it's not scaring to count the days until escalation
'cause we don't know where it begins
we just look back if we want
there have been so many moments of escalation so what

this won't work another 10 years
there is no balance
bewtween joy and fears
today it's great and secure
to deal to sell
to control human fears
it's obvious
that mankind is on top of creation
so who else is counting the days untill escalation

some do but they don't confess
and during the time of silence
they stretch out their hands

and open their accounts and get paid very well
'cause to them it is clear life on earth is and has always been hell

is everybody corrupt
is curroption just a question of style to make you go wild
or is curroption just another term for doing someone a favor
your backround and interest
will answer this question

it's interesting to look at our world

Counting the days until the time of escalation - Lyrics by OOD © Oliver Ohene-Dokyi - 2005
Track Name: You Are Unique
You are unique

Yes the sound of your voice and the way you speak
is telling me that you are unique
your ideas and your thoughts
the very special ways to smile
keep telling me that you are unique

you will live in changes
you might try to change yourself
life is offering many ways
life is offering many ways

there will be misunderstandings
the things you do will not always find comprehension

they will not always find comprehension
they will not always find comprehension

so in time when you are sad be sad
be sad you don't have to speak
but never forget

you are unique
that's what you are

Yes the sound of your voice and the way you speak
is telling me that you are unique
your ideas and your thoughts
the very special ways to smile
keep telling me that you are unique

You will not always hold on to your opinio
especially when you are young
finding out what's right and what is wrong

so whenever there's no one
and you are feeling lost
close you eyes
but see

that you are unique
that's what you are
you are unique
that's what you are

Yes the sound of your voice and the way you speak
is telling me that you are unique
your ideas and your thoughts
the very special ways to smile
keep telling me that you are unique

you are unique

You are unique - Lyrics by OOD © Oliver Ohene-Dokyi - 2005

Track Name: Celebrate Similarities
Celebrate Similarities

Democratization the modern form of christianization
people in the process
exploring foreign ways and art of religion
by stepping or surfing from nation to nation

where is your home the most peaceful place to live
politicians please don't destroy the process
of better understanding the unknown
by killing solid belief

new technology has brought us closer together than ever before
they were dying for freedom of speech and religion
one part of democrecy we shouldn't ignore

our way is right and
your way is wrong
that no base for constructive discussion
so the terror goes on

we have to find and celebrate
similarities
and learn to accept our differences
and try to think
we a re one family
and stop using violence
to develop democracy

we have to stop using violence to develop democracy
we have to stop using violence to develop democracy

you can't become a good human being by wanting to be rich
but regards the picture represented by so many kings and queens polititians musicians, sportsmen and women,v.i.p.'s celebrities
so called well educated people
offered to the poor and the elite
right into the eyes of our kids
guess what they want
guess what they want

old fashioned education
work hard and you will be someone
it seems that it's not enough to be loved
by a single person
to build up self confidence

following tradition collecting possession
building up walls and security must grow
while others have little and live within a silent flow
but feel free, but feel free
but feel free

we should love ourselves and one another
only for the fact of our existance
for the fact that we get to know each other
we were chosen to share this this world together

so tell your friends your sister your father your mother
mothers and brothers

we have to stop using violence to develop democracy
we have to stop using violence to develop democracy

we have to find and celebrate
similarities
and learn to accept our differences
at least try to think
we a re one family
and stop using violence
to develop democracy

we have to stop using violence to develop democracy
we have to stop using violence to develop democracy

we have to stop

Celebrate Similarities Lyrics by OOD © Oliver Ohene-Dokyi - 2005
Track Name: I'm Just Another Singer
I am just another singer

Make it really happen while you listen to this

Step into the magic I'm sure you don't wanna miss

Do come and groove with a funky song
it's just another touch into a miracle

that we call music
now could we live without it
but it's only music
I'll guess we never be without it

I'm just another singer
little switch off trouble bringer

now you did well and perfect
believe it it's true
you've made a step forward
there's nothing more that you can do

criticism lifting shifting or taking you down
but deep within music
it's allowed t fool around

and we call music
now could we live without it
but it's only music
I'll guess we never be without it

I'm just another singer
little switch off trouble bringer

no one is judging or making you mad
a utopian fantasy that we might all have
forced to make progress everyday
but if you can't people
you'll be loved anyway

and if it's not him who loves you
her or them
musics sounds and vibrations do
they gonna keep flowing in

a gift given to y'all to let loose
a free space to place emotions
that we all use

and we call music
now could we live without it
and it's great to have it
I'll guess we never be without it

I'm just another singer
little switch off trouble bringer


I am just another singer - Lyrics by OOD © Oliver Ohene-Dokyi - 2005
Track Name: Work Genius But Love Beginner
Work genius but love beginner

getting better and better
training harder and harder
spending less time with
family and friends

able to work in nearly any kind of whether
in nearly any kind of environment

multi-function and more abilities
the contrast to relaxation
I wanna keep but try to slow down
the human need to improve sufficient creation

Work genius but love beginner
making it difficult not keepin' it simple

cold computer brain
love-retrogrator
more specialized and hypnotized
from the artificial work

perfection is beauty and beauty is perfection
forgot what you said
I went out to a trip into a virtual world

multi-function and more abilities
the contrast to relaxation
I wanna keep but try to slow down
the human need to improve sufficient creation

Work genius but love beginner
making it difficult not keepin' it simple

so many make fun of each other
consult their sisters and brothers
laughin about pain
I often feel pain while I laugh
'cause I can't fade out the seriousness
behind the unfair distribution of food (and goods)

multi-function and more abilities
the contrast to relaxation
I wanna keep but try to slow down
the human need to improve sufficient creation

Work genius but love beginner
making it difficult not keepin' it simple

Work genius but love beginner
making it difficult

Work genius but love beginner - Lyrics by OOD © Oliver Ohene-Dokyi - 2005
Track Name: Sleeping Soldier
Sleeping Soldier

I've found my target
I close my eyes while I shoot
killing makes me makes me feel so good

now I can show and proof show and proof what I've learned
It's lifting my pride to see these houses burn

Track Name: We Are Responsible For Changes
We are responsible for changes

Poor people help poor people
and rich people help poor people too
with money taking from donation
used for simple survival or fair education

But others should stop spending billions into the creation
of sophisticated weapons in order to protect the nation

We are responsible for changes
We are responsible for changes

The most leading countries
still want to rule the world
want to be number one in every selling category

An unfair competition 'casue too many competitors
get hurt so strongly strongly hurt

But others should stop spending billions into the creation
of sophisticated weapons in order to protect the nation

We are responsible for changes
We are responsible for changes

In history many countries didn't have the inventors
or not even the tools
to create their inventions

of course it ain't easy to survive
no matter where you live
every one of every one has sacrifice to give

so we work against peace
so many even pray against peace
pleasing their gods for justice
and raising their kids with hatred
against the enemies born or unborn
ooh why

another generation torn
and growing up without a peaceful form
without a peaceful form

But others should stop spending billions into the creation
of sophisticated weapons in order to protect the nation

We are responsible for changes
We are responsible for changes

You can only win a competiotion if you have a team
so we all should see that the team are we
let justice and peace be our victory

natural spirits, god and allh
they won't run away
they won't run away

except yourself make peace with yourself
we are responsible for changes
everday a new chance

But others should stop spending billions into the creation
of sophisticated weapons in order to protect the nation

We are responsible for changes
We are responsible for changes


We are responsible for changes - Lyrics by OOD © Oliver Ohene-Dokyi - 2005
Track Name: The Base Of Insanity
Look I was made up for making money
thank you I'm leading anyway
always saying follow me
if you wanna see
what's behind the scenes of insanity
moral running into the slums

not spitting out the the chewing
but I don't even chew on one
signed and branded
in my soul I feel so good

I've got control on anything but me
that's the the base of insanity

I guess that's the base of insanity

So be free no chains no gates
it's cool go get it show me hate
but I don't even feel this way
but if you pay I'll do anything
come one and change my will

I've got control on anything but me
that's the the base of insanity

I guess that's the base of insanity

The base of insanity - Lyrics by OOD © Oliver Ohene-Dokyi - 2005

But the main thing I have to say
we will stand behind of you
your company on all of your ways

so if you get in touch with fear

Track Name: You Can Fight The Devil
You can fight the devil

I had to fight the devil
will I ever have to fight him again
get out of here devil
don't take away my friends

dance dumb devil dance across the fire
every human being can be a lier
did I have to lie
yes but it felt so fake
looking into someones eyes


You can fight the devil
but only if you want to
face him deep inside yourself
don't search among your crew

You can fight the devil
he is dying to lose
you don't have to be a rebel
just tell him the truth
and he will lose

I don't wanna lie no longer
It's not just me walking on mother earth and underneath father sky
truth is a sign of love
that's why honesty is stronger

You can fight the devil
but only if you want to
face him deep inside yourself
don't search among your crew

You can fight the devil
he is dying to lose
you don't have to be a rebel
just tell him the truth
and he will lose

You can fight the devil
but only if you want to
face him deep inside yourself
don't search among your crew

You can fight the devil
he is dying to lose
you don't have to be a rebel
just tell him the truth
and he will lose


You can fight the devil - Lyrics by OOD © Oliver Ohene-Dokyi - 2005
Track Name: The Demonstration Of Power
The demonstration of power


The demonstration of power
only provokes fear and new criminal energy
It opens up targets to the oppressed
the demonstrator wouldn't see

one side wants to win
or even die for belief
one side wants to win
or even die for the country

no word of forgiving or retreat
more dead and wounded
anger and suspicion
is what both sides achieve

The demonstration of power
is a demonstration of weakness

the demonstration of power
can not help to win a new friend
it only moves someone to close his doors

intimmidating and threatening
that's what is stands for


one side wants to win
or even die for belief
one side wants to win
or even die for the country

no word of forgiving or retreat
more dead and wounded
anger and suspicion
is what both sides achieve

The demonstration of power
is a demonstration of weakness

in animal kingdom
the weak retires
no senseless killing and no powerless liars
from stoneage to year 2005
we still didn't learn what happens
if we drop oil into the fire


one side wants to win
or even die for belief
one side wants to win
or even die for the country

no word of forgiving or retreat
more dead and wounded
anger and suspicion
is what both sides achieve

The demonstration of power
is a demonstration of weakness



The demonstration of power - Lyrics by OOD © Oliver Ohene-Dokyi - 2005
Track Name: Compromise
Compromise

What is important to you
which way do you chose
is your dream much too big
is your fantasy too strange
you must say it again
to create the line
between our dreams
take down the ego disguise

be ready to give
because life is a gift
connect the soul
patiently playing the role

let your hope rise
adapt your will to compromise

now do you search for a change
so give change a name
we do it together
and life is no game
when do children stop to play
because they mirror our youth
they learn from the start
but develop the rules

be ready to give
because life is a gift
connect the soul
patiently playing the role

let your hope rise
adapt you will to compromise
let your hope rise
adapt your will to compromise

now we reach higher ages
but some live less than one hour
necessary tragedy
so there is no need to run for unlimited power

be ready to give
because life is a gift
connect the soul
patiently playing the role

let your hope rise
adapt your will to compromise
let your hope rise
adapt your will to compromise


let your hope rise


Compromise - Lyrics by OOD © Oliver Ohene-Dokyi - 2005
Track Name: Who Are You
Who Are You

To drunk much too drunk
why stop when there is finally fun
so great no more sorrows
talk talk talk so many colors


the steps are getting shaky
and the smell is so bad bad bad
but why stop drinking
when sosber than sad

sad too when drunk
but not able to cry
covering problems
always willing to fly

there is so much joy and there is so much laughter
not fearing any mistakes
with every shot they are coming closer
and there is new trouble in the shade

fading out stress or fiction
there is much more action to get get
is it habit or is it addiction
being all alone is jut so bad

who are you
you don't remember who you are
now talking true
to yourself or to a stranger at the bar

So exhausted and ashamed
half of the new day so down
dancing for hours
than stumbling around

some more embarrassing stories to tell
listen and you will laugh
avictime of tradition
no need to conceal the staff

there is so much joy and there is so much laughter
not fearing any mistakes
with every shot they are coming closer
and there is new trouble in the shade

fading out stress or fiction
there is much more action to get get
is it habit or is it addiction
being all alone is jut so bad

who are you
you don't remember who you are
now talking true
to yourself or to a stranger at the bar

Track Name: Xenophobia Has Gone
Xenophobia has gone

xenophobia has gone we look at each other
calm and open
we regards us as friends
and the drunkenness of prejudice has gone
and we finally and carefully shake hands
we stopped to undervalue aids
and started to finance care
we stopped feeding an uncertain future
and developed a common thought to share

it's a milestone in history
that we don't create weapons anymore
the guns we've produced are scrapped and recycled
so many feel much safer now
yes they unlock they unlock their doors

fuel nation chiefs they took a look into the sky
the solar energy system support commission is complete now
oil pollution good bye

the reforesting programs did solid the grounds
and helped cleaning the air
no more ghettos 00wooden houses everywhere

we managed to combine wild-life preservation
to the growth of our population
we knew there was plenty of good work and food for all of us
by fair trade we stopped the rural
we stopped the rural exodus


Xenophobia has gone - Lyrics by OOD © Oliver Ohene-Dokyi - 2005
Track Name: Humanize The People
Humanize the people


Big city speed is rising
world trade and economy grows
humanize the people
if we can't now our kids will show

we are told that consumption is the only profitable way
no no no no longer
I can hear the inconspicious say

Humanize the people
humanize the people in our world

we can try it it cause we know how to join hands
when death is near we 've got so many friends

create material but use it for free
no border lines
we are one population it's not so hard to believe

we are already human what do we want more
where is the other creature what are we searching for
what are we searching for

Humanize the people
humanize the people in our world

we can try it it cause we know how to join hands
when tear appear we 've got so many friends

bring this to life people

I'll keep bringing this to life

Humanize the people
humanize the people in our world

we can try it it cause we know how to join hands
when death is near we 've got so many friends
