Never be afraid to get dirty, but be sufficiently sure-footed to avoid the abyss of contamination.

Dr. Marley’s 100% Natural Good-Time Family Band Solution

I was broken the day plans changed. It wasn’t a day: more like a month. It was also the month I received Welcome to Jamaicarock from a friend. Damian Marley, the son of Bob Marley, provides some real gems in those tracks.

From “There For You”:

Vexation of spirit is a waste of time
Negative thinking, don’t you waste your thoughts
Verbal conflict is a waste of word
Physical conflict is a waste of flesh
People will always be who they want
And that’s what really makes the world go round
Unconditional love is scarce
(“Till Shiloh I shall not forsake thee”)
Now and forever more
Forever more, forever more…

From “We’re Gonna Make It”:

Yeah, Yes mi Lion!
Always look on the brighter side of life, you know
Nuh must, now

Don’t you ever give up, Don’t you ever give in
Don’t you ever give up, Don’t you ever give in
Don’t you ever give up, Don’t you ever give in

[…]

I know we’re gonna make it, It’s not too late, We’re gonna make it, Yeah
Yes, I know we’re gonna make it, It’s not too late, We’re gonna make it, Yeah

From “In 2 Deep”:

Mesmerized by the beat
CD on repeat memorizing my speech
You’re in too deep

So don’t be in too deep
For you wi’ incomplete
When you drop in the streets
You wi’ drop in too deep

I’m not broken, and even if I am, at the very least I can function. When there’s a crack in the armor, Dr. Marley is often enough to supply a quick remedy.
