Track Name: Babylon Is Falling
Babylon is falling down
Everybody losing control
People use and abuse this world
And now they just taking a stroll
These times have changed

Time will tell, left in no wealth
You gotta start giving your love
Maybe then you will open your eyes
And end up in Heaven above

There is light at the end of the darkness
Why don't you come out and see? Yeah
Some are prisoners of this world, Lord
But you were never right to be, these times

Babylon is falling, falling, falling, falling, falling down
Babylon is falling, falling, falling, falling, falling down
Track Name: Somebody
Oh yeah
(Try to get up, try to get up)
(Try to get up, try to get up)

Wait and see because you know you need somebody

I said, the lovin' you lost is just one of the costs
When you're livin' in the streets and you're runnin' from cops
And everyday, it's just the price you pay
When you're livin' by the words and the things you say

And if your mother only knew
That all these things you say you know are true

C'mon and a little woman, yes, the one you wanted
The type of woman leave you brokenhearted
Got the type of body that you can't ignore

Said, you got a lot of money but you can't afford
A little lovin' from the wrong side
Of the bed you sleepin' for the long night

Wait and see because you know you need somebody

(Try to get up)
Oh yeah, somebody
(Try to get up)
Oh yeah, somebody
(Try to get up)
Oh yeah
(Try to get up, please somebody)

You're sayin' that you're leavin', baby
I don't think that you're comin' back
And nothing's meant to last forever
Let me know what you think about that

'Cause taking time to think about it
Only means that you'll work it out
Said thinkin' that you need her
And what it's all about, c'mon and

If your mother only knew
That all the things you say you know are true

And if you're thinkin' that you need someone new
You'll have to wait and see because you know you need somebody

(Try to get up)
Oh yeah, somebody
(Try to get up)
Oh yeah, somebody
(Try to get up)
Oh yeah
(Try to get up, please somebody)

On the Billboard chart they'll bring back me hit
Give me the mic and run the track, the mister start a spit

Tell them a Mr. Mutton time boy, they exit
Cartez sent them out with friend but them a hypocrite
Border line nigga, tell them don't cross it
How all don't me carrying a basket

One way me seeing is the righteous way
Me no see no other way but me no see no other way
One way me seeing is the righteous way

Bounce with me, pound the floor, this entity is done
He has done so many things some man was done but then become
A man if he understand how the world runs
But you can't be ungrateful

And now allow me a beat to follow I'll do this
How would it feel to meditate and I'll study from this
On the Billboard chart they'll bring back me hit
Give me the mic and run the track, the mister start a spit

One way me seeing is the righteous way
Me no see no other way, but me no see no other way
One way me seeing is the righteous way and

Said woman, look lovely to me but your body no ready
And if that you're thinking you're ready to give it a try
And maybe, you might want to wait before you give yourself away

Between someone else and your love

A little older now, you've got to get a little bit older now

So when the weekend come, yes, you'll have some fun
Then you'll drink some wine and you'll drink some rum
But before too long when your pressure's gone
You know that you're waiting for someone to come, yeah

Let me know, said, if you're willing to let go
