Safe from harm

(marshall, vowles, del naja, cobham, nelson)

[Shara Nelson]

Midnight ronkers
City slickers
Gunmen and maniacs
All will feature on the freakshow
And I can’ t do nothing ‘ bout that, no
But if you hurt what’ s mine

I’ ll sure as hell retaliate

You can free the world you can free my mind
Just as long as my baby’ s safe from harm tonight

You can free the world you can free my mind
Just as long as my baby’ s safe from harm tonight

[3d]

I was lookin’ back to see if you were lookin’ back at me
To see me lookin’ back at you

[Shara Nelson]

Lucky dippers

Crazy chancers
Seems to be moving fast
What happened to the nicities
Of my childhood days
Well i can’ t do nothing ‘ bout that, no
But if you hurt what’ s mine
I’ ll sure as hell retaliate

[3d]

I was lookin’ back to see if you were
I was lookin I was
I was lookin’ back to see if you were lookin’ back at me
To see me lookin’ back at you

[Shara Nelson]

You can free the world you can free my mind
Just as long as my baby’ s safe from harm tonight

You can free the world you can free my mind
Just as long as my baby’ s safe from harm tonight

[3d]

Tell us what it is dangerous
Friends and enemies I find it’ s contagerous
And they’ re spreading through your system like a virus
Yes the trouble in the end it makes you anxious

I was lookin’ back to see if you were lookin back at me
To see me lookin back at you

I was lookin’ back to see if you were lookin back at me
To see me lookin back at you

[Shara Nelson]

But if you hurt what’ s mine
I’ ll sure as hell retaliate

You can free the world you can free my mind
Just as long as my baby’ s safe from harm tonight [x2]

[Shara Nelson]

« escroqueries » de la nuit
« faux éclats » de la ville
bandits armés et maniaques
tous figurent dans ce défilé monstrueux
je ne peux rien y faire

mais si tu pouvais éprouver mon quotidien
je suis certaine que ça ressemblerait à une vengeance de l’ enfer

tu peux libérer le monde tu peux libérer mon esprit
aussi longtemps que mon enfant sera à l’ abri du mal la nuit

tu peux libérer le monde tu peux libérer mon esprit
aussi longtemps que mon enfant sera à l’ abri du mal la nuit

[3D]

je regardais derrière moi si tu me regardais aussi
pour me voir regarder vers toi

[Shara Nelson]

passant inaperçus par chance
ils se hasardent improbablement
semblent se déplacer rapidement
qu’ est-il arrivé aux veillées
des jours de mon enfance ?
je ne peux rien faire à tout ça
mais si tu pouvais éprouver mon quotidien
je suis certaine que ça ressemblerait à une vengeance de l’ enfer

[3D]

je regardais derrière moi si tu me regardais aussi
pour me voir regarder vers toi

[Shara Nelson]

tu peux libérer le monde tu peux libérer mon esprit
aussi longtemps que mon enfant sera à l’ abri du mal la nuit

tu peux libérer le monde tu peux libérer mon esprit
aussi longtemps que mon enfant sera à l’ abri du mal la nuit

[3D]

dis nous ce qui dangereux
amis et ennemis, je trouve que ça s’ interverti
ils se répandent dans ton système comme un virus
oui, à la fin, le souci te rend anxieux

je regardais derrière moi si tu me regardais aussi

pour me voir regarder vers toi

je regardais derrière moi si tu me regardais aussi
pour me voir regarder vers toi

[Shara Nelson]

mais si tu pouvais éprouver mon quotidien
je suis certaine que ça ressemblerait à une vengeance de l’ enfer

tu peux libérer le monde tu peux libérer mon esprit
aussi longtemps que mon enfant sera à l’ abri du mal la nuit

One love

(marshall, vowles, del naja, williams)

[Horace Andy]

It’ s you I love and not another
And I know our love will last forever
You I love and not another
And I know we’ ll always be together
Some men have one love, two and three love

Four and five and six love
But I believe in one love
I believe in one love

Some men don’ t feel secure
Unless they have a woman on each arm
They have to play the field, prove they have charm
They say don’ t lay your eggs in one basket

If the basket should fall all your eggs’ ll be broken
But I believe in one love
I believe in one love
Oh girl I believe in one love
I believe in one love
Oh girl it’ s not the everyday you find the woman of your dreams
Who will always be there no matter how bad things seems
Ever so faithful ever so sure

No man could ever ask for more
I believe in 1 love
I believe in one love, oh girl
I believe in one love
I believe, girl, oh yeah
In one love, in one love
In one love, in one love
I do, I do, I do

In one love
I do
In one love
I believe in one love, in one love

C’ est toi que j’ aime et pas une autre
Et je sais que notre amour durera pour toujours
… toi que j’ aime et pas une autre
et je sais que nous resterons toujours ensemble
Certains hommes ont un amour, deux ou trois amours

Quatre et cinq et six amours
Mais je crois à un amour unique
Je crois à un amour unique

Certains hommes ne se sentent pas en tranquilles
A moins qu’ ils n’ aient une femme dans chaque bras
C’ est plus fort qu’ eux, prouver qu’ ils ont du charme
Ils disent ne porte pas tes oeufs dans le même panier

Si le panier tombe, tout tes oeufs se casseront
Mais je crois à un amour
Je crois à un amour
Oh, je crois à un amour
Je crois à un amour
Oh, ce n’ est pas tout les jours que tu trouves la femme de tes rêves
Qui sera toujours là sans se soucier des mauvais moments
Toujours si fidèle toujours tellement sure

Aucun homme pourrait demander plus
Je crois en un amour unique
Je crois en un amour unique, oh
Je crois en un amour unique
Je crois, oh yeah
Un amour unique, un amour unique
Un amour unique, un amour unique
J’ y crois, j’ y crois, j’ y crois

En un amour unique
J’ y crois
En un amour unique
Je crois en un amour unique, en un amour unique

Blue lines

(marshall, vowles, del naja,thaws, brown, bennett, carlton, geurin, sample, scott)

[Tricky]

Can’ t be with the one you love then love the one you’ re with
Spliff in the ashtray, red stripe I pull the lid
Her touch tickles, especially when she’ s gentle
But I don’ t hear her words ‘ cause I slide the instrumental
Keep the girl in the distance, moves are very hazy

No sunshine in my life the way I deal is shady

[3D]

Skip hip data to get the anti-matter
Blue lines are the reason why the temple had to shatter
To the sound of silence surrounded by the mass
Her face is on the paper not the strangers that I pass

The ones that looking back to see if they are looking back at me

[Daddy G]

Are you predator or do you fear me

[3D]

Yeah while I’ m doing this I know
The place I really wanna go
The one I love but never gets near me

[Tricky]

It’ s a beautiful day, well it seems as such
Beautiful thoughts means I dream too much

Even if I told you, you still would not know me
Tricky never does, adrian mostly gets lonely
How we live in this existence, just being
English upbringing, background carribean

[3D]

It’ s the way that we ?bility ?

Sharing a soliloquy
We cut the broken thread from flexibility
Mi chiamo 3D si sono Inglese
No sunshine in my life ‘ cause the way I deal is hazy
And everyday’ s a daisy ‘ cause I’ m on my toes
While contemporaries of mine remaining comatose

[Tricky]

There’ s a looking glass she’ s looking through
She hated me, but then she loved me too
I’ d lie not try so I lost faith
Then turn to her to keep the faith
She told me take an occupation or you lose your mind
And on a nine to five lemon, looking for the lime

[3D]

Box clever, watch your system come together
Crazy weather at the end of my tether

[Daddy G]

Massive in the area, murderer

Attack inna the area, murderer

[3D]

Some go softly softly round the habitat
Ratchet in the right hand
They got no one to stab it at
Take a walk billy, don’ t be a hero

Effort’ s on minimal though almost touch zero
Excommunicated from the brotherhood of man
To wander lonely as a puzzled anagram

Car paint blue, green, primer and zinc
Take it to extremities my purple and pink
I feel the colours fill my room beneath the patter of the rain
I can’ t stand the drops they’ re dripping down my windowpane

They wash away my shadow and don’ t even leave a spark upon my soul
They leave the rainbows in the dark

[Tricky]

Blues get big, massive are even larger
Save nuff space into the tricky tardis
We’ d trawl what I saw from down in darren’ s hall

People laying their claim
In stormy weather it’ s rain

[3D]

But you’ re living on a see-saw

[Tricky]

I try to see more

[3D]

Somebody da-ditty, nobody
Walking on sunshine, but still we’ re treading water
The son of many reasons searching for the daughter

Seeking knowledge, not acknowledging the jetset
Silver papers of the sound within my budakon headset
The solar system watches in wisdom
The children dance as the moonlight kissed them

[Tricky]

To Massive attack Matt Black appear wearing beads

Two hours traveling so I wrote this on repeat
Always living fast, people getting jumpy
Where on ?gruggy ? falls I do the walter crumpy
Microphones held close, crouching far apart
Take my piece of mind and sign my name across your heart


Be thankful for what you’ ve got

(de vaughn)

[Tony Bryan]

Though you may not drive a great big cadillac
Gangster whitewalls tv antenna in the back
You may not have a car at all
But just remember brothers and sisters
You can still stand tall

Just be thankful for what you’ ve got
Though you may not drive a great big cadillac
Diamonds in the back, sunroof top, diggin the scene
With the gangster lean
For what you’ ve got

You may not have a car at all
But just remember brothers and sisters

You can still stand tall
Just be thankful for what you’ ve got
Diamonds in the back, sunroof top, diggin’ the scene
With the gangster lean ooh ooh ooh
Though you may not drive a great big cadillac
Gangster whitewalls tv antenna in the back
You may not have a car at all
But just remember brothers and sisters

You can still stand tall
Just be thankful for what you’ ve got
Diamonds in the back, sunroof top, diggin the scene
With the Gangster lean
[x3]


Five man army

(marshall, vowles, del naja, thaws, williams)

[Daddy G]

Trendy wendys you know what i mean
Hangin’ around with girl who’ s rolling up her jeans
She watches her street cred ‘ cause she’ s no dummy
Saw rockin the microphone and now she’ s calling me a honey
Says I know what I want don’ t move with thugs
We’ re house parties hip hop and smoking drugs

And whoever’ s been the boss she’ s down with ‘ em
She’ s always on time ‘ cause the girl got rhythm
To avoid all complications i’ ll give some information
About a certain location under Paddington Station
‘ Cause when I host my show-a I avoid the girl called lola
Who’ s more pu-pu-public than the drink they call it coca cola
I’ m just practice posing face is shaded in black
Is dominating as my color the massive attack

Right now i hit it kick it flow smooth hit middle wicket

[Tricky]

I take a small step now it’ s a giant stride
People say I’ m loud why should I hide
Only had a small taste so what a waste
I quietly observe though it’ s not my space

Bottom end’ s heavy you know we’ re never even
People call me Tricky for particular reason
I’ ve got you see and I’ ve got to let you know
See we’ re rockin’ in your area rock beneath your balcony
My baby just cares for me well that’ s funny
Her touch tickles especially on my tummy

[Daddy G]

Now who’ s got the microphone

[Tricky]

Now who’ s honey

[Daddy G]

A turbo turbo and chant with a charge
Addy, Daddy G wild bunch crew at large
Don’ t call me an officer just call me a sarge
Mashing up the country planning also abroad
Plan to go to America when I get a visa card

[Tricky]

But gettin’ a visa card nowadays isn’ t hard

[Daddy G]

So keep your ears glued listen to every chord
Tokyo city’ s one place that we toured
Four technic plus two mixer board

Sharper than a Wilkinson razor sword

[3D]

When I was a child I played subbuteo on
My table then I graduate to studio one
‘ Cos D’ s my nom de plume you know but 3′ s my pseudonym
And around my neck you know I wear the sony budokan

Indigo blues you got me in my own shoes
The people dancing in the shape for what they make
They can’ t lose
Yes waxing lyrical but this time it’ s not satirical
It’ s kinda spherical so jam me in a ???
This is the miracle of the dubplate dub selection

[Daddy G]

So whether you’ re black white or half-caste in your complection

[3D]

Yes pull out your phono plug and tuck you in your phony
It’ s started by marconi resumed by sony
A summary by wireless history and only

The massive attack ??? explosione

[Horace Andy]

Get away with you gangsters
We don’ t want it
Get away with you gangsters
We don’ t like it

Eternal love eternal love
Money money money
Root of all evil
Money money money
Root of all evil


Unfinished sympathy

(marshall, vowles, del naja, sharp, nelson)

[Shara Nelson]

I know that i’ ve been mad in love before
And how it could be with you
Really hurt me baby, really cut me baby
How can have a day without a night

You’ re the book that I have opened
And now i’ ve got to know much more

The curiousness of your potential kiss
Has got my mind and body aching
Really hurt me baby, really cut me baby
How can you have a day without a night
You’ re the book that I have opened

And now I’ ve got to know much more

Like a soul without a mind
In a body without a heart
I’ m missing every part
[x5]

Je sais que je me suis fait des idées sur l’ amour avant
Et comment pouvait-il être avec toi
Tu m’ as vraiment fait du mal bébé, vraiment profondément blessée

Comment peut-il y avoir de jour sans nuit
Tu es le livre que j’ ai ouvert
Et maintenant je dois en apprendre plus

La curiosité de tes baisers potentiels
A endolori mon corps et ma tête
Tu m’ as vraiment fait du mal bébé, Vraiment profondément blessée
Comment peut-il y avoir de jour sans nuit

Tu es le livre que j’ ai ouvert
Et maintenant je dois en apprendre plus

Comme une âme sans esprit
Dans un corps sans coeur
Je manque tous les rôles
(x5)

Daydreaming

(marshall, vowles, del naja, badarou, thaws)

[Horace Andy]

I quietly observe standing in my space

Daydreaming
I quietly observe standing in my space
Daydreaming

[3D]

Way that we say ‘ em in style that we write ‘ em in
Massive attack we keep it strong just like a vitamin

Going for the positive wiping out the negative songs
‘ Cause brother it’ s relative
The pass is picking up all the lyrics on the dance floor
That raise your spirit level ‘ cause it demands for

[Tricky]

Attitude is cool degrees below zero

Up against the wall behaving like De Niro
Tricky’ s performing taking his phono
Making a stand with a tan touch it like cocoa
Smooth to keep you moving at the back now
Free is the needle it’ s moving through the track now

[3D]

Dance to the drummer’ s beats we need new sticks
Bounce around the vibes like acoustics
No drugs or pharmaceuticals for the body ain’ t suitable
Stick with liquid me and trick we’ ve drop
A paper which you use my tongue to lick with

[Tricky]

Trouble and strife ain’ t no sunshine in my life
Wiseguys get protection when they carry a knife
They shouldn’ t have been born they’ re making me yawn
But I just take it easy it’ s a sunday morn’

[3D]

So you come on light my fire and

Together we’ ll grow forever watch my eight kay rig go

[Daddy G]

Because my eight kay rig goes boom boom
My eight kay rig goes boom

[3D]

Yeah rhymin’ the jam and uh we got the stamina
In case you never know us if we don’ t give a damn and uh
And it’ s hard to handle keep your distance
Resist and the posse gets the pleasure of this dance
The cool breeze that you welcome in the heat
You don’ t see it but you feel it when it’ s blowing on the street

[Tricky]

If i was a rich man

[Daddy G]

Da da dada

[Tricky]

I quietly observe standing in my space
It’ s the devious days they call the rat race
It’ s a concrete jungle, evil in the town
Weebles, wobble, occasional squabble
But what happen when the bomb drops
Down

[3D]

Don’ t make sound
‘ Cause the dancefloor’ s a desert
And the dancers are parched
Do a rain dance and your brain’ s still marsh
My heavy my brother get lighter than helium

Float above the world to break the tedium
Living in my headphones sony’ s what I say to ‘ em
The surreal boom of the budokan stadium

[Horace Andy]

Well i’ m floating on air when i’ m daydreaming
I quietly observe standing in my space

[Tricky]

Well i’ m tricky kid don’ t deal with sadness
Can’ t be with the one i love i love the one that i miss
I’ m very down to earth but brain sits on top floor
Don’ t need another lover just need, i’ m insecure

[3D]

The weather is a-changin’ the storms be shakin
The love that you take is equal to the love you’ re makin
Here comes the sun little darlin here comes the sun
It’ s alright

[Tricky]

Yes tricky kid i check my situation
Maggie this Maggie that Maggie means inflation
Hip-hop you don’ t stop cause i’ m not sloppy
I like the beat so we need another copy

[3D]

We’ re natives of the massive territory and we’ re proud
Get peaceful in the dance, adapt the glory and the crowd
The problem ain’ t a different kind of skin tricks
I love my neighbor I don’ t wait for the olympics
See you go hooligan you’ re trying to play the fool again

[Tricky]

Caught you in the lost and found

[3D]

When your posse weren’ t around

[Tricky]

No crowd

[3D]

So you’ re going for you tool again

[Horace Andy]

Daydreaming
I quietly observe standing in my space
Daydreaming
Well i’ m floating on air when i’ m daydreaming


Lately

(marshall, vowles, del naja, nelson, redmond)

[Horace Andy]

Summertime always gives me the blues
Thinking about the things we used to do
Watching lovers in the park making love so free
And now i realize there’ s only me

Lately baby where, where did we go wrong

[x2]

You been acting like a cat on a hot tin roof
Something’ s on your mind that you can’ t share
You never used to hide your feelings from me
Keepin secrets i don’ t understand

Lately baby where, where did we go wrong

[x2]

I used to synchronize it with your body
Making it so tight never letting go
[x2]

Lately baby where, where did we go wrong
Lately, lately, lately, lately

Lately baby, where did we go wrong
Where did we go wrong
Missed your touch, missed your touch

L’ été me donne toujours le blues
A penser à toutes ces choses que nous avions l’ habitude de faire
A regarder les amoureux faire l’ amour librement dans le parc
Et maintenant je réalise que je suis seule

Récemment bébé, où, où avons nous commis une erreur ?

[x2]

Tu as agit comme un chat sur toit brûlant
Quelque chose dans ton esprit que tu ne peux partager
Tu ne m’ avais jamais caché tes sentiments à mon sujet
Gardant les secrets que je ne peux comprendre

Récemment bébé, où, où avons nous commis une erreur ?

[x2]

J’ avais l’ habitude de me synchroniser avec ton corps
Le serrant si fort pour qu’ il ne parte jamais
[x2]

Récemment bébé, où, où avons nous commis une erreur ?
Récemment, récemment, récemment, récemment

Récemment bébé, où, où avons nous commis une erreur ?
Où avons nous commis une erreur ?
Ton contact me manque, ton contact me manque.

Hymn of the big wheel

(marshall, vowles, del naja, cherry, andy)

[Horace Andy]

The big wheel keeps on turning
On a simple line day by day
The earth spins on its axis
One man struggle while another relaxes

There’ s a hole in my soul like a cavity
Seems like the world is out to gather just by gravity
The wheel keeps turning the sky’ s rearranging
Look my son the weather is changing

I’ d like to feel that you could be free
Look up at the blue skies beneath a new tree
Sometime again

You’ ll turn green and the sea turns red
My son I said the power of axis over my head
The big wheel keeps on turning
On a simple line day by day
The earth spins on its axis
One man struggle while another relaxes

We sang about the sun and danced among the trees

And we listened to the whisper of the city on the breeze
Will you cry in the most in a lead-free zone
Down within the shadows where the factories drone
On the surface of the wheel they build another town
And so the green come tumbling down
Yes close your eyes and hold me tight
And i’ ll show you sunset sometime again

The big wheel keeps on turning
On a simple line day by day
The earth spins on its axis
One man struggle while another relaxes
As a child’ s silent prayer my hope hides in disguise
While satellites and cameras watch from the skies
An acid drop of rain recycled from the sea
It washed away my shadow burnt a hole in me

And all the king’ s men cannot put it back again
But the ghetto sun will nurture life
And mend my soul sometime again

The big wheel keeps on turning
On a simple line day by day
The earth spins on its axis
One man struggle while another relaxes

[x2]
