Peace God!
Ayyo peace
What's the science?
You gettin' ready to drop math on this?
True indeed my brother
Well it's time to start the revolution
Aight, so let's start this

See it's a positive force which guides my course
It ain't Little Bo Peep, who's sheep little lost
It's the Tribe, the God Tribe of Shabazz
First on the planet Earth, but definite to be the last
If Allah stands, she'll pass
Students enroll, while Jamar teach class
Seminar I give, is for you to live
Not try to keep your mind captive
I break shackles, tear down tabernacles
Any problem in sight, Jamar tackles
Bones crackles as I start to break
The body of the snake that's fake!
Unto my people, lies and deceit
Through trickery, but, Hickory Dickory
Dock, time's run out on the clock
The shepherd is here to protect the flock
With my staff I walk through the wilderness
Build on math, and destroy all the villainous criminals
Perpetratin' constant subliminal signs to brainwash the minds
Of the unknowin', kept church goin'
It's time to shine light, that's why I'm Provin' and Showin'
That the age has come to be conscious
Not unconscious, 'cause in your subconcious mind
You find I speak the truth, from the DJ booth
Straight to the youth, of the inner city, and the outskirts
Some may disagree, but yo hey, the truth hurts
Lord Jamar, and I'll advance in the industry
I'm makin' sure you can dance to my ministry

Now dance!

Ayyo come, into my laboratory
I'mma take you on a tour
An ankh is the key and the key is knowledge
Which unlocks my lab's door
Kemet lets you enter, heat generates from the center
Lord Jamar's an inventor
Production of black facts, put on to a black wax
I got a lot to say, set in stacks
To the right is where I keep my fuel
The Quran and 120 lessons
Am I the nicest? Count your 12 jewels
Word is bond, 'cause the Gods keep testin'
Why the test? 'Cause I'm 'fessin this duty of the civilized
From the dumb you bring forth the wise
So they can open their eyes to their being
And finally realize it's just the all-eye seeing
Black Man Supreme, knowledge machine
The Alpha and Omega, the Arm-a-Leg-a-Leg-a-Arm-a-Head
And like jam these facts will spread
Over the thoughts of the white bread
'Cause we've been misled for the longest
Time to rise up and gather our strongest
Brothers and sister, Mrs. and Misters
He rose and she rose, we'll take 'em from the zero
With raw funk, to thee and show 'em, how it ought to be
'Cause it's passively, hell I fought for thee
Culture of my ancestry
And made it so you can dance to my ministry

So dance!

Ayyo I want to peace to the Father Allah and Justice
I want to say peace to all the Gods and Earths
And all the positive people of the universe
I want to say peace to the God Sincere
The God Supreme, Lakim Shabazz
And the God Jahwell from Mt. Vernon
I want to say peace to my Nubian brothers
Maxwell, Derek X, and Alamo
Want to say peace to my physicals, Tony D
And Lil' Terrance
I want to say peace to my good brother Q-Tip
From A Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul
And last but not least I want to say peace
To the grandfather Bambaataa of the mighty Zulu Nation
And I'm out y'all
Knowledge knowledge

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

When We Were Young
This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.
Album art
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.

Another Love
Tom Odell
I think the meaning is pretty clear. This person got really burned in a previous relationship, and because of this is unable to love and show care in his present one, even though he so badly wants to. It's lovely song, and very sad. You can really feel how defeated and frustrated he is with himself.

Somewhere Only We Know
Per the FAQ on Keane's website, Keane's drummer Richard Hughes, stated the following: "We've been asked whether "Somewhere Only We Know" is about a specific place, and Tim has been saying that, for him, or us as individuals, it might be about a geographical space, or a feeling; it can mean something individual to each person, and they can interpret it to a memory of theirs... It's perhaps more of a theme rather than a specific message... Feelings that may be universal, without necessarily being totally specific to us, or a place, or a time..." With the nostalgic sentiment and the overall tone of the song, I think Keane is attempting to express a Portuguese term known as 'saudade', which does not have a direct English translation but roughly means "that which we remember because it is gone."
