1. Roots in Stereo (featuring Matisyahu) (4:42)
P.O.D. and Matisyahu
Original Roots In Stereo, ya know
One time, bring it down selecta

I got that Boom Bye Bye, so nobody disrespect, Jah love
Give me strength and power flow through white dreads ('nough said)
You all walk with kings, talk with kings
When it all goes down, have no idea what it really means.
To live by words, if scripture is roots,
and the wise hold they tongue when the youth speak the truth.
You learn real quick, where I'm from if you don't belong
Only the strong survive, Southtown and Babylon
(See Babylon Burnin to the ground yo)
You think your number 1 wicked selecta
Try to sneak up in my hood, we not gon'let ya
(Babylon's burnin to the ground, yo)
In the streets they hear your name, they no respect ya
You can run and hide, in the end we gon' getcha

Boom Biddy Bye Bye
Original Roots In Stereo
So rep the streets you ride on.
Chant them down with that rude boy sound,
and watch the whole world lie down.
We generals in the streets they know
Who wears the crown for shine now
It got that champion sound moshin through your town
We go make the world go lie down.

Me say, Hey natty dreadlocks where you come from?
Where the mountains watch the city and waters touch the sun
Where some carry crosses like others carry guns
And pray Jah be glorified till the day soon come.
Follow me
Lick a shot if you a mighty warrior
Lick a shot if you a freedom fighter
Lick a shot if you a true souljah
Now dance your way back to Zion
(Now Dance your way back to Zion)

I put it down for your love, till my journey is done
And let the stories be told how the battle was won
So I grabbed the microphone and I started to run
Here I come, Boom Biddy Bye
Here I come

Boom Biddy Bye Bye
Original Roots In Stereo
So rep the streets you ride on.
Chant them down with that rude boy sound,
and watch the whole world lie down.
We generals in the streets they know
Who wears the crown for shine now
It got that champion sound moshin through your town
We go make the world go lie down.

Empty nation just a phase, redemptions on it's way.
The people love to talk but they don't got that much to say.
Generation of orphans whose hearts are all ablaze,
Little light in a lot of darkness goes a long way.
Freedom, hearts bleed, and I see them feedin poison.
Poor choices, spirits screamin, trying to break these boundaries.
Running up a mountain, chains tied to my feet.
Running up a mountain, chains tied to my feet.

Original Roots In Stereo
So rep the streets you ride on.
Chant them down with that rude boy sound,
and watch the whole world lie down.
We generals in the streets they know
Who wears the crown for shine now
It got that champion sound moshin through your town
We go make the world go lie down.
We go make the world go lie down.
Make the world go lie down.

Bloodstain drippin through the rain,
Face down, trip and feel the pain.
Get up, you conduct your own train, rippin it up, stepping it up, raising it up
We're the blood of God's veins, we gotta maintain get past the blame.
And then this fame came, for a reason and a season.
Then I'll stay up, not lay low,
And raise yours and up the offering
And then the blessings will flow

We go make the world go lie down.
Make the world go lie down.
We go make the world go lie down.
Make the world go lie down.

Dripping in the rain, face down, trip and feel the pain
Get up, you conduct your own train, rippin it up, stepping it up, raising it up
We're the blood of God's veins, we gotta maintain past that of blame
Gathers fame, came for a reason and a seasons
Here to stay up, not lay low
2. Lights Out (2:47)
It goes one for the money homie, two for the show.
We tore the roof off this mother now it's time to blow.
Like we don't need no water, don't bother, we let it burn.
We keep the fire just a little bit hotter, that way you'll learn.
Respect I earned, started with the clique that i hanged.
Respect I earned, ever since i got in this game.
Respect I earned, never wanting fortune or fame.
I'd rather have these south Diego streets knowin my name.

Chiggy-check, microphone check.
Chiggy-check, microphone check.
It's Lights Out, Game Over.
If you wanna you can check my stats.
It's Lights Out, Game Over.
Make way cause the kings is back.

We bang boogy through your system, subliminal.
We lyrical murderin like we criminals.
It's life or death, medical decision.
We so dope out the lab that you need a prescription.
The hood is listenin, so for you that i wrote this.
Keep it underground, stickin to the streets like the homeless.
With the dopeness, recognize the real P.O.D.
Cause we triple O, oh triple, triple OG.

Chiggy-check, microphone check.
Chiggy-check, microphone check.
It's Lights Out, Game Over.
If you wanna you can check my stats.
It's Lights Out, Game Over.
Make way cause the kings is back.
Lights Out, Game Over.
If you really think you got it like that.
It's Lights Out, Game Over.
Word on the streets is the boys is back.

Lights Out, Game Over.
Make way cause the kings is back.
It's Lights Out, Game Over.
If you really think you got it like that.
Lights Out, Game Over.
Word on the streets is the boys is back .
It's Lights Out, Game Over.
Worldwide homie pay respect.
Lights Out, microphone check.
It's Lights Out, microphone check.
Make way cause the kings is back.
Lights Out.
3. If You Could See Me Now (3:07)
My soul is alive, and so are you
Helps when trying to pass the time, it ain't easy without you
As long as I can try, I'll make it through
But it might take awhile, believe me if you only knew

If you, If you, Could see Me Now
If you, If you, Could see Me Now
If only you, If you, Could see Me Now

And is this what you want for me to feel?
Or am I going out of my mind? What Is real?
Stay by my side, so I can live
And I will be alright, don't leave me

If you, If you, Could see Me Now
If you, If you, Could see Me Now
If you, If you, Could see Me Now
If only you, If you, Could see Me Now
(Then you'd understand who I really am)
If only you, If you, Could see Me Now
(You never questioned me, if you could only see)

And is this what you want for me to feel?
And Is this what you want?
Is this what you want?
Is this what you need?
Is this what you want?
Is this what you need?

If you, If you, Could see Me Now (If I could see you!)
If you, If you, Could see Me Now (If I could see you!)
If only you, If you, Could see Me Now (If I could see you!)
(Then you'd understand who I really am)
If you, If you, Could see Me Now (If I could see you!)
(You never questioned me, if you could only see)
4. Goodbye for Now (4:34)
I can still see the light
at the end of the tunnel shine
through the dark times
even when I lose my mind

But it feels like no one
in the world is listening
and I can't ever seem
to make the right decisions

I walk around in the same haze
I'm still caught in my same ways
I'm losing time in these strange days
but somehow I always know
the right things to say

I don't know what time it is
or whose the one to blame for this
Do what I believe what I can't see
And how do you know
which way the wind blows

Cause I can feel it all around
I'm lost between the sound
And just when I think
I know, there she goes

[Chorus]
Goodbye for now
Goodbye for now
So long

Goodbye for now (I'm not the type to say I told you so)
Goodbye for now
So long (I think the hardest part of holding on is lettin go)

When will we sing
A new song
A new song

We’re still smilin as the day goes by
and how come nobody
ever knows the reasons why
Burry you deep so far
you can't see

If you're like me
who wears a broken
heart on your sleeve

Pains is troubles that
you know so well
Either time don't
It can't or you just won't tell

I'm not the type to say
I told you so
I think the hardest part
of holding on is lettin it go

I don't know what time it is
or whose the one to blame for this
Do what I believe what I can't see
And how do you know
which way the wind blows

Cause I can feel it all around
I'm lost between the sound
And just when I think I know 
there she goes

Goodbye for now
Goodbye for now
So long

Goodbye for now (I'm not the type to say I told you so)
Goodbye for now
So long (I think the hardest part of holdin on is lettin it go)

[Repeat]
When will we sing
A new song
A new song

And you can sing until
theres no song left (song left)
And I can scream until
the world goes deaf (goes deaf)

For every other word
left unsaid you should
have took the time to
read the sign and
see what it meant

In some ways everybody
feels alone so if the
burden is mine then
I can carry my own

If joy really comes
in the morning time
then I'm gunna sit back
and wait until the
next sun rise

Goodbye for now
Goodbye for now
So long

Goodbye for now (I'm no the type to say I told you so)
Goodbye for now
So long (I think the hardest part of holdin on is lettin it go)

[Repeat 2x]
When will we sing 
A new song
A new song
5. Sounds Like War (3:53)
What you know about that fallin, fallin
Babylon this so called great dead, wait,
Dread bout to update the death rate in one take,
Make no mistake we the real deala,
The radical natural born wig-splitter.
Gonna getcha, with the style that make your soul holla.
More drama, though when droppin the sure-shot,
I rock it steady, be ready till the track is diminished
and when the die goes belly up consider it finished

Sounds like it's war to me,
Peace, Love, and causalities
Sound's like it's war to me, yeah
Close your eyes so you can see
Peace, Love, and Harmony
Sounds like the war in me, yeah

We keep on movin like don't stop, let it go, soul to soul
Dread at the controls, tag em up and label em John Doe.
The raw flow, We built the new style empire.
blazin my choir, like that 4th man on fire.
This guns for hire, take the vow of the Nazarenes.
Then come clean, They're crazy bald heads dontcha mean.
Wickedness fill the sky on the death blow.
carve the name across your chest,
incase the dog catcher wants to know

Sounds like it's war to me,
Peace, Love, and causalities
Sound's like it's war to me, yeah
Close your eyes so you can see
Peace, Love, and Harmony
Sounds like the war in me, yeah

Dread at the controls, label em John Doe
Dread at the controls, label em John Doe
Dread at the controls, label em John Doe
Dread at the controls, label em John Doe
Dread at the controls, label em John Doe
Dread at the controls, label em John Doe
Dread at the, Dread at the
Dread at the controls, label em John Doe

Sounds like it's war to me,
Peace, Love, and causalities
Sound's like it's war to me, yeah
Close your eyes so you can see
Peace, Love, and Harmony
Sounds like the war in me, yeah

Sounds like it's war to me,
Peace, Love, and causality
Sound's like it's war to me, yeah
Whatever the case may be,
this time it's got to be
Peace, Love, and Harmony, yeah
6. On the Grind (featuring Sick Jacken and Boo-Yaa Tribe) (4:25)
Psycho Realm, P.O.D., Boo-yah Tribe. What? What?
My soul is payable on death, the flow I'm layin here is deaf
Mics come with a teflon vest, my words wreck
I'm a Psycho, ill with the voco-loco.
Heard a sick pedo noco noco by coasta logo
Gas mask with the gangsta strollo
Got a piece that will match the chrome D's on my low-low
Total chaos, you think that I'm a rapper your way off
I'm a killer that be murderin these tracks, so stay off.
Serial rhymin, convicted of driving and beat the hymen
and breaking the hymen on ears that never heard of the line that I'm in
The danger zone is common, city blocks got the demons mobbin
I'm a con-artist, starvin, strong armin
Jason's guitarin, Traa's bass while Wuv is bombin
Bring the streets to the booth, It's my therapy from mental scaring
From the hell when i dwelled in an L.A. projects

Ever since the day the streets be callin
Ooo what it takes to keep from fallin
All i know is how to hustle man, so I'll stay on it.
Somewhere in the world the sun is shining
down on my face there's someone trying
trying to grind it out these streets we live
and I'm not dying

My souls payable on death, home grown out the west
my words be leapin from the grill leaving you holding your breathe
So who want next, and who gonna test?
Come get this lyrics beating, I'm out the frame like graffiti
It's so misleading, but i make it look easy
and everybody out the box trying to cop my steezy
So my crew roll through, you know quite is kept
But my level is next, so bet it all on dread
I break bread with hustlers, conversate with kings
Conquer kingdoms with warriors and preach to the fiends
Partake communion with dealers, love the least of these
Ask forgiveness from a priest and keep my ears to the streets
Some of my people still fightin they own demons
And some of my people still shootin until it's even
Some kill you just because, and I'll leave it at that
But I choose to use this mic to push these platinum plaques

Ever since the day the streets be callin
Ooo what it takes to keep from fallin
All i know is how to hustle man, so I'll stay on it.
Somewhere in the world the sun is shining
down on my face there's someone trying
trying to grind it out these streets we live
and I'm not dying

Ever since the day the streets be callin
Ooo what it takes to keep from fallin
All i know is how to hustle man, so I'll stay on it.
Somewhere in the world the sun is shining
down on my face there's someone trying
trying to grind it out these streets we live
and I'm not dying

When it drizzle come the storm
and when you born, you see that rappers die where I come from
You thankin gangsta, thank the game
West full circle and it finally came
From the waters runnin how the west was won
How them candles flamin for my brothers to find home
Broken halos and clipped wings
Though we birthed of the west coast, we'll talk in them real things
Did ya'll know that gangstas don't cry?
Did ya'll know all thugs don't ride?
We gangsta pimpin but we had to
You ever touch my sister, got you!
I'm keepin it gangsta cause keepin it's worth keepin
And paid for being processed
With sleeping worth leaking
The streets ball callin me out of control
I'd rather be sending love before I let it go

Ever since the day the streets be callin
Ooo what it takes to keep from fallin
All i know is how to hustle man, so I'll stay on it.
Somewhere in the world the sun is shining
down on my face there's someone trying
trying to grind it out these streets we live
and I'm not dying

Ever since the day the streets be callin
Ooo what it takes to keep from fallin
All i know is how to hustle man, so I'll stay on it.
Somewhere in the world the sun is shining
down on my face there's someone trying
trying to grind it out these streets we live
and I'm not dying

I'll stay On The Grind, I do this all the time
For all it's worth, I keep on searching for my piece of mind.
I'll stay On The Grind, I do this all the time
For all it's worth, I keep on searching for my piece of mind.
I'll stay On The Grind, I do this all the time
For all it's worth, I keep on searching for my piece of mind
7. This Time (4:41)
And is this, where we need to be?
Or are we tired of looking?
Searching for more than eyes can see,
For something to believe in.
It slipped away, fell away, tried to play yourself
No turning back, all alone and there's nobody else,
Who even knows I'm missing.

And I will run
But this time,
It's worth more than the chance we're taking.
And I will run
But this time,
Wanting more has got me waiting
This time for love.

And I have done this all before,
And nothing ever changes.
Waiting gets harder everytime,
I don't know how to stay still.
And nothing more left to lose, throw it all away
Maybe the last chance i get to see your face
I can't afford to leave here

And I will run
But this time,
It's worth more than the chance we're taking.
And I will run
But this time,
Wanting more has got me waiting
And I will run
But this time,
I can't believe the chance we're taking
And I will run
But this time,
I need to know so I'll be waiting
This time for love.

And I will run
But this time,
It's worth more than the chance we're taking.
And I will run
But this time,
Wanting more has got me waiting
And I will run
But this time,
I can't believe the chance we're taking
And I will run
And I will run
This time for love.
8. Mistakes & Glories (3:38)
Handicap yourself by choice
and keep the mind confined to the chair with no voice
So speak up (move your lips too slow)
And make way to the center stage
And pretty up that face, cause your servants await.
(It's time to play your role)
So sing and dance just the way we like it!

Sweep The Leg!
If you don't stand for something
Sweep The Leg!
Then you don't stand for nothin
Sweep The Leg!
You must suffer the repercussions
Sweep The Leg!

A coward dies a thousand times
Death before dishonor, cross the thin red line
So stay alive, (No other place to go)
Silence the facts, delusions are corroded
clench the fist in truth and shove it down your throats
(Don't act like you don't know)
I'm on the wrong path walkin the tight rope

Sweep The Leg!
If you don't stand for something
Sweep The Leg!
Then you don't stand for nothin
Sweep The Leg!
You must suffer the repercussions
Sweep The Leg!

Mistakes & Glories!
They're in the ground, but they were cut down
Mistakes & Glories!
Death doesn't lie and it won't be denied
Mistakes & Glories!
We answer the call but some heroes must fall
Mistakes & Glories!
Giving all you can give when your dying to live

You work for us, You work for us
You work for us, You work for us
You work for us, You work for us
You work for us, You work for.....us!

Sweep The Leg!
If you don't stand for something
Sweep The Leg!
Then you don't stand for nothin
Sweep The Leg!
Gotta suffer the repercussions
Sweep The Leg!

Mistakes & Glories!
They're in the ground, but they were cut down
Mistakes & Glories!
Death doesn't lie and it won't be denied
Mistakes & Glories!
We answer the call but some heroes must fall
Mistakes & Glories!
Giving all you can give when your dying to live
Mistakes & Glories!
They're in the ground, but they were cut down
Mistakes & Glories!
Death doesn't lie and it won't be denied
Mistakes & Glories!
We answer the call but some heroes must fall
Mistakes & Glories!
Giving all you can give when your dying to live
9. Let You Down (4:15)
No one knows what goes on inside of your head
And everything seems to be ok.
And your the same as you've always been (your the same)
If I'd listened, would you have talked to me?

I don't wanna Let You Down,
But I can't even pick up myself.
I only wanted to make you proud,
But I don't think I can do this anymore.

When did this crowded room get so lonely?
And everyone keeps looking at me.
I'm tired (so tired) of faking my life (faking my life)
I'm so tired, I don't wanna feel this way.

I don't wanna Let You Down,
But I can't even pick up myself.
I only wanted to make you proud,
But I don't think I can do this anymore.
(do this anymore)

And you mean more, You mean so much more
And you mean more, You mean so much more
And you mean more, And you mean so much more
And you mean more, And you mean so much more

I don't wanna Let You Down,
But I can't even pick up myself.
I only wanted to make you proud,
But I don't think I can do this anymore.
10. Teachers (4:21)
Imperial, Righteous respects, cause we ain't done yet

Lock it down, and overthrow all the pilots
And get out of town, can you see them smiling
Blisters, these bones are breaking
Whispers, are louder than screaming
And we suffer this moment until the day is coming
That we'll reign forever!

Training Day!
Cause I man is coming and we are the Teachers
Training Day!
We been through the fire cause we're pioneers
Training Day!
The soul of the lion, Jah love for the bleeding
Training Day!
Warrior soldiers, we still believe you!

Crawling through poison I lay
My soul still flies with broken wings
and the sun is blinding, I can't stop staring
I don't wanna close my eyes
Righteous respects, and it's the best kept secret
And I can let go of my burdens that keep me from living
so I can start dying

Training Day!
Cause I man is coming and we are the Teachers
Training Day!
We been through the fire cause we're pioneers
Training Day!
The soul of the lion, Jah love for the bleeding
Training Day!
Warrior soldiers, we still believe you!

Warriors
Jah love for the bleeding
Jah Soldiers
We still believe you

Crawling through poison I lay
My soul still flies with broken wings
and the sun is blinding, I can't stop staring
I don't wanna close my eyes!

Training Day!
Cause I man is coming and we are the Teachers
Training Day!
We been through the fire cause we're the pioneers
Training Day!
The soul of the lion, Jah love for the bleeding
Training Day!
Warrior soldiers, we still believe you!

Cause I man is coming and we are the Teachers
Cause I man is coming and we are the Teachers
Cause I man is coming and we are the Teachers
11. Strength of My Life (featuring Matisyahu) (3:37)
Yo! Eternal rhythms in your system so clear.
No negative take your isms stay cleared
We keep it lovely, give you want you want hear (no you won't hear)
And Matisyahu in the house, stand clear.
P.O.D. in the house, stand clear.
If Jah is for me, tell me whom I gon' fear? (no I won't fear)
And Jah of Jacob, deserving of my love
And God of Isaac, bring blessings from above
Hashem of Abraham will show me the way
I go down on my knees and this is what I pray.

Strength Of My Life, whom shall I dread?
When them evildoers approach to devour my flesh.
Even if there would be an army against me,
My heart would not fear.

Steer clear from weird vibes.
Chuck a spear these evil guys must realize,
Even if there would rise a war against me.
In this I trust, it's a must.
Elevated is my head, above my enemy.
Surround me with the song of glory
(Yeah, Song of glory, Yeah, ohhh)

Take away the scales from my eyes
Anoint your love upon my life
Have mercy on my soul and hear me when I cry
Do not abandon me, and don't forsake me
Lead me on the path of integrity

Even if there would be an army against me,
My heart would not fear.
Strength Of My Life, whom shall I dread?
When them evildoers approach to devour my flesh.

Back them up against the wall, stumble and fall then battle y'all
And stand tall, show me favor when I call Oh-oh
Back them against the wall, stumble and them fall
Battle y'all and stand call, show me favor when I call
Oh-oh-oh, yo, Matisyahu, P.O.D.
Eternally, with his majesty
Dwelling in the songs of glory
Dwelling with the song of glory
12. Say Hello (2:32)
Oh, yeah, yeah, Come on!
Walked in the place, and everybody looked down at we
Disgust on their face, but we don't mind cause we're too busy smiling
Never get in my face, that's not the way to understanding
And ignorance is blind, so this time, this time we gonna let it ride

I know, that I know, that I know, that this is,
I know, that I know, that I know, that this is real
I hate to disappoint you, but this is how I feel.
And let me introduce to you myself,
Say hello to the bad guy.

Can't plead my case, the juries out won't give me a chance,
Cause I don't think the same.
Shut down the court, kidnap the judge.
Now they sit in his place,
And who are you to make your birth right deciding my fate?
I know your kind, I have, and I will carry on.

I know, that I know, that I know, that this is,
I know, that I know, that I know, that this is real
I hate to disappoint you, but this is how I feel.
And let me introduce to you myself,
Say hello to the bad guy.
We're here to make you feel better about yourself
We're here to introduce you to yourself
Say hello to the bad guy!

I hate to disappoint you, but this is how I feel.
And let me introduce to you myself,
Say hello to the bad guy.
We're here to make you feel better about yourself
We're here to introduce you to yourself
Say hello to the bad guy!
13. Mark My Words (featuring Sick Jacken) (3:43)
Checkmate, pull the plug on a fake
Get to steppin too late, gotta take em, break em down
One testify, see the fire in his eyes
We determine the ghost when a warrior cries that sound
Spirit flips, soul spits. Meditate on the words from the King's lips
Apocalyptic, psalm scripted, prophet's eyes
Armageddon come quick, It's a death wish, of a white witch
Come inside and I'll tell you were the beast live
Come inside and I'll tell you were the beast live

Mark My Words, Mark My Words
Mark My Words, Mark My Words
Mark My Words, Mark My Words
Mark My Words, Mark My Words

Soul that's raised by a rush through your veins
Gonna bring the pain, You can see it's goin down
Frontline, nobody left behind. Rebel soul, let em know
when it's time you better hold your ground.
Regulate, interrogate, cause the enemies loose and he's out for the take
Under no faith, leaving no trace, another one took by an old hate
It's a death wish, of a white witch
Come inside and I'll tell you where the beast live
Come inside and I'll tell you where the beast live

Mark My Words, Mark My Words
Mark My Words, Mark My Words
Mark My Words, Mark My Words
Mark My Words, Mark My Words

Who's got that witch? Who's got that witch? Who's got that witch?
Who's got that witch? Who's got that witch? Who's got that witch?
Who's got that witch? Who's got that witch? Who's got that witch?
Who's got that witch? Who's got that witch? Who's got that witch?
Who's got that witch? Who's got that witch?

Be not far from me,
For trouble is near,
And there is none to help.

Mark My Words, Mark My Words
Mark My Words, Mark My Words
Mark My Words, Mark My Words
Mark My Words, Mark My Words
Mark My Words, Mark My Words
Mark My Words, Mark My Words
