"Got'ta Be Times (355)" - Song lyrics (translator):

There has got’ta be times
when Yuh face
the Rainbow’s edge - and
cross the Bridge
to where the River flows
there has got’ta be times
when the STRESS has to be faced head-on
de’time Yuh got to face You
and question - deal with and then accept
Your Self-doubts and limitations
realize the fact that
You are … Your greatest fear and still though
through coaching motivations
Your best mentor.
Yeah … you are
your greatest motivating mentor
Yuh - face the Rainbow’s edge
cross the Bridge
to where the River flows ..!)

There has got’ta be times
when Yuh just
got to take Your Head - and
lead You
to the dark side
search for the path
that edifies a “survivalistic” psyche
and with Your Self-gained Wisdom
lighten the way
to Your fulfillment … in You - as
it’s Your Spirit
that knows the way
this leads towards
Self-achievements and advancements
so put a foot - in front a step
and let’s … stride on.
Yeah … there has got’ta be times
when yuh take your head - out of the dark
put a foot - in front a step
an’ stride on ..!

There has got’ta be times
when Yuh face the
the nightmare - that
Your Mother can’t help
Your cries of despair
and encaged in the beast’s grip
it is You whom must rescue Your Soul
from the venom that attempts to
suck Your Bloodline
in the desert of fear.
There has got’ta be times
when Yuh just don’t give-a-damn
fist in hand and fighting back
‘cause You are who You are
so … as Your Head falls back
in Your lover’s arms
make sure to be selfish
in the loving of Self - least
headache a lingering pain
in the butt.
Yeah … you be selfishly be … in love with self
as you face the nightmares
that deprives your fear
of its sleep ..!

There has got’ta be times
when Yuh face
the Rainbow’s bow
cross the Bridge
to where the River flows
and when the craziness of this feat
maddens You
as it is a monumental task
to accept and help Self
know this: a little madness is the good
for the presumed saneness
once You realize the leveled - balance
of Your Own Self
destruction then - can begin to help Self
towards its Own gratification
in knowing the STEP is taken - and
You then can
stride onward to Your Vision … as its reality.

There has got’ta be times
when Yuh just
got to take Your Head - and
lead You to that one Compatriot
whom Yuh can always
call to - without creating a NEW fear
the One whom Yuh
always lead/lean an obligation onto
despite a situation’s tedium
that comforting place
Your fearing Soul can find
a brave Shield
to embrace the doubts
Your aloneness MUST face.

There has got’ta be times
when Yuh realize
Your craziness will bring
some saneness to the mess.
